That is sweet, I love Airstreams.
I was thinking of Tikifying my little camper for next years Hukilau. It's a 1966 Shasta with the wings on it. I have been using it as a storage unit. The inside is decked out but the outside..... Needs help. I have it all stripped down and have been procrastinating on what colors and design to go with . I think in September I am going to knuckle down and giterdone. Perhaps I will post the progress & transition once I get the project started.

I'll probably go with earth tones and with some tastefully subtle Tiki Details.

Mahalos to all who posted in this thread. At least we can live vicariously on TC. I sent an Okole Maluna to y'all from Seattle on Mai Kai Saturday Night. I firmly believe that the Mai Kai on Hukilau Saturday Night is an experience like none other. I wish I could have made it this year, but I'm glad a blast was still had. We're blessed to have such amazing folks organizing these events. Thank you, thank you!

All events depicted in this article are simply the author's rum-induced take on the Tiki Reality that transpired that evening... Should a photo of the 'vintage tiki' that exists 'down there' miraculously appear, I'm sure there's a member of my 'fan club' that might be interested LOL

Looks like I need me one of those Tiki Aliases so that on the two nights a year that I actaully go somewhere else I can do so clandestinely without the press reporting my every move!

I've never seen a more unaccurate report of Hukilau's events. What a meaningless, embaressing and hideous article. The reporter actually insulted me and all of the attendees beyond belief Saturday night - so much so that I wrote a letter to the editor. She even called the Mai Kai "a dump".

At least she did talk to some fab people!!

As I said to Mike elsewhere, never read your own press: WEIGH it.
(Not sure how that axiom applies to the internet, but you get the point).

I dn't believe this writer had mean intentions - but she did strike me as sort of a smart-ass. The press have been making Tiki people out to be kooks since day one. Our options are either to deal with it, or to tell them to fuck off, which isn't exactly 'aloha'... although I've been tempted.

Let's see what happens on my radio interview tonight.
10 to 1 odds the guy tries to make me seem like a retard (shut up Dave!).
Any Quebecois out there want to record it?

Here is a better article about Hukilau, that focuses on the Mai Kai.
http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/features_food/2007/06/weve_been_to_th.html

My favorite line is this one.
"You can't really understand what the emcee says but he has a melodious voice, and you get the drift of what he's saying."

Lets hope the Mai Kai can reach an insurance settlement soon, and make repairs, before too many people are scared away by the initial look as you drive in.

It's modern blog journalism. Not real writing, just talking as opinionated and dumb as you are. And an editor who doesn't think its worth finding out any advanced bias. It's a party, so send that schelp over there. Errr.

Gotta get some sort of PR people out there to act as advanced teams steering these people to write a story.
Check out the story City Link did in 2003 to see real writing with the right frame of mind. It can be done, and in South Florida!

Thanks for that link Swanky... Nice article...
I must say that The Intoxicators! love everything that has every been written about us... Ha!
The paper in our hometown wrote an article about cover bands several years back that listed us... The reporter had never actually seen us...
Sometimes it works in your favor though... I sent an e-mail out one time to The Inoxicators! mailing list that we were playing Twang Fest II (a festival with featuring a surf band playing with a bunch of Hank III type country bands)... Since it went out to our mailing list, The Intoxicators! were listed first in the lineup for the show... This somehow got to a reporter, and they printed my e-mail almost word for word which made us out to be the headliner at Twangfest II... I thought it was hilarious... Of course it's not every day that the newspaper prints lines like "Break out the smoked mullet and boiled peanuts... and put some red on your neck... you are cordially invited to Twangfest II"
The promoter was not amused...

Cheers!
