Hey Squawker~

Since you are local, and are in the "haunted arts", did you ever go to the "Haunted Crypt" at Chapman University back in 1992, 1993 & 1994? My audio production company did the custom haunted soundtrack for them. I still have the original 24 track tape, and, of course have it on DAT (digital audio tape) too. I co-produced, edited, and own the complete soundtrack. We even did the complete sound reinforcement setup at The Crypt. I'm still partly active (meaning when I feel like working "in the biz") as an audio consultant, and
this is my latest co-project still to be completed, and IS NOT tiki related. We have won quite a few film festivals so far this year.....I think I'll step off my high-horse now.

I took this waaaay off subject. Sorry.

Uh...

What are you wanting here, SugarCaddyDaddy? I was involved with Knott's Halloween Haunt back in the '90s (haven't worked with that since Cedar bought out Knotts) and really was too busy to visit any local houses during that period.

I have no current projects on the schedule, however, those things usually creep up on me last minute (I hate that - everything at the last minute and they want it tomorrow). As this is OT, maybe you should contact me off BB. E-mail at
Unccreepy@aol.com

Squawker, both Tikitronic and I are also involved with pro hauntings here in Portland! We didn't realize we knew each other in that life until we met for drinks at Alibi one evening. Theme freaks is what we are, aren't we?

At my age, most of my "pub crawling" nights are over. Amazing I survived. That's why I created my own tropical bar and habitat within my home. Seems to be safer and keeps me from making a complete moron of myself in public.

To answer, no, I haven't seen the band you mentioned (I haven't even been to a concert in 10 years). I'm usually too busy with whatever project to get out that much. By the time I've decided to shut down from a day's work, I'm too exhausted to stumble down the stairs. But then, that was the reason behind the tropical thing at home. Clears my head and revitalizes the soul. A necessary part of my life, considering what I have to do to pay the mortgage.

As for the haunted life, let's just say I have a lot of skeletons in my closet. Literally.

Hey, I'm new and don't know if posting on a thread that's been long dormant here gets much attention, but I am looking for some king of torch that provides a larger flame than the standard, oil tiki torches. If possible, I would like something portable, e.g. that would run off a portable propane or similiar fuel tank. I would only use it a few times a year.

The fire-science item cited early on in this stream sounded very promising, but the link doesn't seem to work anymore. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.

I just found this site that sells multi-colored flame for tiki torches, check out the video. Looks nice for creating the mood.

Wow....those are beautiful. I would love to have some tiki torches in my yard....but flame and a very dry landscape forbids it. I wish someone made these bamboo torches with a solar-powered light in them and colored lights would be great.

I too love the multicolored flames. Around here (Bakersfield) we have lots of wood shake roofs and flaming tiki torches make people nervous, not that it prevents anyone from lighting them up. I have tiki torches lining one entire side of the lot that my house is on, though I did assure the neighbor that they were 100% ornamental. How fun it would be to light them all up!

Ok I need help from some Zen Tiki Masters....Bought this funky bamboo shelf to display more mugs. The shelf has these weird "cup holders" on the sides. They would be a perfect way to frame out precious tiki mugs if they were converted to electric tiki torches with flickering bulbs. The cup holders are too small for standard tiki torch canisters. Anyone know if there are any torches commercially available that have narrow or skinny fuel canisters? Any one else have a good idea about what to use instead of tiki torch fuel canisters?

Not sure if you must use fuel and flame, but you can use flicker-flame simulators for light bulbs. There are several brands on the market. Theme parks, theatres, and haunted houses have been using them for years.
