I don't know how much of a secret it was, but Friday night ended with the Love Me Knots and The Barbwires. (Friday went pretty late.)

Saturday it was the Lampshades and The Untouchables.

Sunday it was magician Rob Zabrecky and Casino Royale. CR did an amazing first set of spy themes with a brass section and a great girl singer.

Charles Phoenix and Martin Cate just about shook the walls down with their seminars, the hotel guys said they've NEVER heard laughter and action like that in the main ballrooms. We had to sweep people off the floors after Martin's, and TikiWineBear told me he almost had to leave Charles' show because he was having trouble having enough time to breath between the laffs.

I don't know how many people were aware of it, but we had a world premiere showing of the movie "The Burlesque Assassins" on Sunday afternoon, with a burlesque show in the middle, champagne, and a talk by the director. It was a gasser, man.

THAT was the best Oasis to date! The proof is in the 700+ pictures and the fact that my voice is pretty much gone.

Thanks Otto/Doe and everyone who makes things happen behind the scenes from the vendors to volunteers to the performers.

I didn't hit all the parties...mainly because I was blacking out..but thanks to :

Purple Orchid's Welcome Party on Thursday. It ain't Oasis until there is a stop by your room to kick off the weekend.

Monet2u for the after Bali Hai shindig. Next year I will make it in your room longer

I missed Thee Swank Bastards but the Creepy Creeps KILLED IT in their suite at midnight Friday. KILLED IT! Lost my voice from all the screaming and I think my feet went numb from all the dancing but DAMN! THAT set was off the freaking chain!!

Tonga Hut's 2 night extravaganza. Marie your drinks were the bomb! Awesome snowcone idea! And the room decor was amazing! Amy, Jeremy,Marie, Scott, Marty you guys are the bee's knees! Such a bummer Jeremy wasn't there.

EasterIslandElvis and his band of friends for some tasty cocktails as well as the mug shot wall prop. So creative kids

To the fine folks of Tiki Hell. A personal thank you for the recovery of the wallet and the mug that Filthy Midget lost. We really appreciated disaster being averted. I know how much money and time you put into your suite so thank you, thank you, thank you!

Tikitastic, TikiPug as well Kelly (from Trader Sam's) and his friends for letting us come booze it up. Awesome cocktails and great time for sure. Thanks for letting us swing on by.

Tiki Oasis is pretty much my most favorite event of the year and it was great to spend it with so many fine friends both new and old.

I seriously can not wait until next year already...I can only request to the global warming gods to chill the place down next August...us Bay Area Folks can't handle the heat!

I think it's called "summer".... something we havent had much of the past few years.

It wasn't THAT bad, and that's what the pool is for

That's OK Jim, come this Winter the same folks will probably be asking "what's up with all this rain?"

Man, it was pretty uncomfortable getting into the spirit of the event, sporting a formal dinner jacket and tie in a hot crowded room party. Oh the things we do for Tiki !!

This would have been a great year for the "Eden's Island" / Nature Boy / Au Naturale Tiki Oasis that I know is coming.

The mainstream media is taking this thing seriously...

Somehow we're home, unloaded, unpacked, and exhausted. That was a fantastic weekend. Many many thanks for the efforts of so many people...Otto & Baby Doe, the Tiki Oasis staff, the volunteers, the artists, performers, educators, vendors, room party hosts, and all of the friends (new and old) we saw this weekend. The time really just flew by.

The Tikiyaki Orchestra set a really high bar Thursday night with their performance at the Bali Hai and Val and I rode that energy throughout the weekend. I'm not sure how Martin Cate keeps finding ways to top himself, but I'll just enjoy the ride as he does. We didn't make it to a ton of room parties, but I can say both the Ding Dong Devils and the Tonga Hut parties were top notch. And the new art we picked up...I can't wait until it's on the walls and shelves.

Like many others, I have hundreds of photos to sort through for the photo thread. But that's a project for tomorrow.

Mahalo!

this is some great Agent Sh!t right here

---------------
THE FINAL H.U.L.A. Training video before Tiki Oasis! This time, Agent Tiki Sideburns teaches you the MOST important lesson of all.

Also, this transmission does NOT get hijacked by a tiki-terrorist organization. Nope. Not at all. See for yourself...

Congrats!



It's such a kick that they used part of my painting.

Here's Otto with the whole painting I did for Tiki Oasis 12. Cheers, Wendy
