I hope you all don't mind a newbie putting in his 2c, I've never met Bosko or Shag or to the best of my knowledge, any of the Tiki pioneers of late, but as I see it the interest is a cultural appreciation of the Art, and an exchange of ideas and of the friendships made along the way. I have nothing but admiration for all that have carved before me, and alongside with me, and those to come. But I can safely say that just at the chops I've attended I've met some of the most talented, knowlegable, and personable folks this community has to offer, and thank you folks for having me! As I browse through the posts on this forum I'm AMAZED at the quality of workmanship by so many talented folks around the world, all sharing the same cultural interests, that I can't keep up with it all!

The bottom line of my thoughts are that if you are involved in this Art form, revel in it, enjoy it for what it does for you. I don't cut wood or stone for profit nor do I intend to, but I do know how it makes me feel doing it, and how much I enjoy the learning process from all of you talented folks. And that's all I have to say "bout that!

I was at the Bali Hai yesterday and spoke with Larry (Bali Hai owner). We have a meeting in 2 weeks where we are going to go over specifics. Should have a lot more info then. I'm sure most of you know the Tikiyaki Orchestra will be playing one of their first shows ever. If you've heard the CD, you're in for a treat! The Smokin' Menehunes will be playing most of the night and are great! Larry said they have received a lot of dinner reservations for the night already. If you're planning on having dinner, make reservations as soon as possible. Big thank yous to WooHoo and Soccertiki for posting hotel info. I have one more week of school and then will be able to concentrate on the art show and the upcoming issue.

P.S. Danny, I completely agree with you about Bosko. He's a great guy and an incredible artist. He was part of the inspiration behind Tiki Magazine. I love his art! If you come to my house, you'll see that Bosko is well represented. Also, Eric "Gordo" Gordon is a San Diego-based artist. I have nothing but love for all Tiki artists, no matter where they're from.

I think I like Bamboo Ben the best!!!!!!!

Have you ever met a girl that you tried to date
But a year to make love she wanted you to wait
Let me tell ya a story of my situation
I was talkin' to this girl from the U.S. nation
The way that I met her was on tour at a concert
She had long hair and a short miniskirt
I just got onstage drippin', pourin' with sweat
I was walkin' through the crowd and gues who I met
I whispered in her ear, "Come to the picture booth
So I can ask you some questions to see if you are a hundred proof"
I asked her her name, she said blah-blah-blah
She had 9/10 pants and a very big bra
I took a couple of flicks and she was enthused
I said, "How do you like the show?"
she said, "I was very amused"
I started throwin' bass, she started throwin' back mid-range
But when I sprung the question, she acted kind of strange
Then when I asked, "Do ya have a man," she tried to pretend
She said, "No I don't, I only have a friend"
Come on, I'm not even goin' for it
This is what I'm goin' sing

You, you got what I need but you say he's just a friend
And you say he's just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need but you say he's just a friend
But you say he's just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need but you say he's just a friend
But you say he's just a friend

So I took blah-blah's word for it at this time
I thought just havin' a friend couldn't be no crime
'Cause I have friends and that's a fact
Like Agnes, Agatha, Germaine, and Jacq
Forget about that, let's go into the story
About a girl named blah-blah-blah that adored me
So we started talkin', getttin' familiar
Spendin' a lot of time so we can build up
A relationship or some undderstanding
How it's gonna be in the future we was plannin'
Everything sounded so dandy and sweet
I had no idea I was in for a treat
After this was established, everything was cool
The tour was over and she went back to school
I called every day to see how she was doin'
Everytime that I ccalled her it seemed somethin' was brewin'
I called her on my dime, picked up, and then I called again
I said, "Yo, who was that?" "Oh, he's just a friend"
Don't gimme that, don't ever gimme that
Jus' bust this

You, you got what I need but you say he's just a friend
And you say he's just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need but you say he's just a friend
But you say he's just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need but you say he's just a friend
But you say he's just a friend

So I came to her college on a surprise visit
To see my girl that was so exquisite
It was a school day, I knew she was there
The first semester of the school year
I went to a gate to ask where was her dorm
This guy made me fill out a visitor's form
He told me where it was and I as on my way
To see my baby doll, I was happy to say
I arrrived in front of the dormitory
Yo, could you tell me where is door three?
They showed me where it was for the moment
I didn't know I was in for such an event
So I came to her room and opened the door
Oh, snap! Guess what I saw?
A fella tongue-kissin' my girl in the mouth,
I was so in shock my heart went down south
So please listen to the message that I say
Don't ever talk to a girl who says she just has a friend

These student carvers are great and developing into awesome carvers, but they are not in the same league as BOSKO! Period, end of discussion. Who is Bosko? Oh, just some guy who helped start the tiki carving / mug revival! Please realize that if it wasn't for Bosko doing tikis since the "80's ,we (yes I include myself 100% ) probably wouldn't be "chopping" them today .



I have to just chime in here to say I totally agree. Not only are Bosko and all the artists at this show amazing artists, they have been amazingly helpful and open to teaching so many of us of new carvers. I can't thank the "masters" enough, I feel honored to have learned from so many.

Aloha & WoooHooo! I've done a little homework and here's the info I have for you regarding accommodations. Humphries requires a two night minimum for the weekend and their room availability is very limited to rooms that are really pricey for that weekend. BUT...... The Best Western Island Palms Hotel (which is right next door to Humphries and within walking distance to The Bali Hai) has availability. If you are interested in staying their I reserved a Block of rooms at the rate of $175 for the night of November 2. Call 1-800-922-2336 to reserve your room. To get this rate mention Tiki Magazine Rate. Feel free to PM me if you have any ?'s Mahalo!!



Rooms at The Island Palms are going quickly. If your planing on staying there for the night book your room ASAP!! Don't forget to tell them that you want the Tiki Magazine Rate

Me too....I think having it on Friday is definitely going to hurt the number of LA atendees, but I'm guessing The Bali Hai probably isn't available on a Saturday...they're a pretty busy place for weddings etc....

Still, hopefully people make it a long weekend and take Friday off and cruise down. With the great artists showing up for this event, it will be worth it.
