Dayum...I am going to send Buzzy a $1 just cause he is the great Tiki Karnak and so benevolent with his knowledge. Buzzy...I'm tellin ya you could be rich...rich I tell ya, if you make a Tiki Cheesecake Calendar. Sure the Karnak dollars must be piling up, but a $15 or $20 Buzzy Cheesecake calendar would put you on easy street.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. Your main mistake was that you took Buzzy too seriously. Nobody else here does. Even if he is the shining example of the contemporary Tiki revival artist who actually does study original Oceanic Art, and creates with that in mind, instead of just copying the same low brow grinning cartoon Tiki all over!

And I am profoundly grateful that he cares to post responses to such questions as yours, so that I am not the only one who has to do all the work around here!

Here's my 'pinion on your most recent items:
1.) Very cool modernist ceramic piece. Not based on any specific culture. I would call it perhaps...TIKI MODERN!
2.) Comedy/Tragedy masks, just that. Though the tragedy one looks Tiki-esque, they primarily are "drama faces"
3.) Not Marquesan, but pre-Columbian



Now I only have to figure out how I can get a Dollar too for each informative post I do....

(maybe if I would leave out those damn smiley faces, I would be taken more seriously, like Buzzy!)

Wow! You guys should have seen the sunset today. It started out with the sky on fire:


Then it went all purple:

Happy New Year!

I have no problem giving Tiki-Central money for their upkeep or services.



Time to put your money where your mouth is:

Is Tiki Central worth $2.00 to you? About The Tiki Central Grand Membership

But, to be honest, it caught me completely off guard when someone gave me information (I really got excited when someone replies so soon and with such good info) and then asked for money, with no prior agreement to do so.



That's not exactly correct. Maybe you should go back and reread my original post. Focus on which parts that were directed to you, and which were directed to the general public.

While he/she does that, the rest of you can read what I believe to be is the main source of conflict here:

How Do You Know? A Strategy to Help Emergent Readers Make Inferences(excerpt)
Journal article by Janet C. Richards, Nancy A. Anderson; The Reading Teacher, Vol. 57, 2003

Helping emergent readers

In our work with young students, we often note that they do not generate inferences naturally and spontaneously. They can usually deduce information from one segment of the text, but they fail to integrate it with implied information in other parts of the story or in storybook illustrations. Often, emergent readers experience problems because of text constraints, such as syntactic or vocabulary difficulty (Dewitz & Dewitz, 2003). Their underdeveloped reasoning abilities, lack of prior knowledge for story content, or overdependence on prior knowledge that causes them to invent plausible but inaccurate answers also may create barriers to comprehension (Anderson & Pearson, 1984; Dewitz & Dewitz, 2003; Neuman, 1990; Trabasso & Suh, 1993).


Unga, Jonesey, Vamp: Thanks for the paypal payments! Today I went to Jack in the Box and got two of those $1 big cheeseburgers with the money. That's probably all the food I need today and I still have $1 left for tomorrow! I'm thinking I'll change things up a bit tomorrow and go for the $1.29 Big Hamburger at Carl's Jr. All I need is 29 cents more...Maybe someone else has a question I could answer? Right now I'm running a New Year's Day 70% off sale. One tiki question* answered for only 30 cents. (*Please, no mug questions. Try Ooga Moogainstead.)

Just ask! I did and the money's been rolling in ever since!



Hey pali-uli, after you become a Grand Member, you should nominate this thread for "Cool & Current"

Both "cool" and "current"
Buzzy Out!

I saw someone ask a question today in the "Introductions! New members post here" thread. You should go hit them up.

$#!^*&&! Psycho Tiki D already answered it, for free even! He obviously doesn't know the true value of knowledge.

I have a feeling people like him and this thread might hurt my long range business plan:
Ask Little Lost Tiki Absolutely Anything
All those answers, justr given away, like they have no value at all.

Maybe I'll start concentrating on higher priced, quality answers for the discriminating asker.
Less answers, more money.
Buzzy Out!

Finally.... with Buzzy mentioning the "Ask LLT Anything" thread in this thread, two of my favorite threads have merged.

I think I hear fireworks.

Matt, I sent you a buck but PayPal returned it because you never collected it. What's wrong with my buck?
