Tiki blog going to be once a week going forward

Now that I have successfully cataloged all my older Tiki pictures and events and Tiki Oasis has come and gone for another year....I'm going to start making this a weekly blog instead of daily....(for lack of material)......I may occasionally post stuff more often when a whim hits me or a song of the day strikes me or something Tiki comes up.  

Here is the Video of the week....A little Burlesque from Tiki Oasis 2011.....(from You Tube)

Tiki Oasis 2011 Whipped Cream, Herb Albert and Mexican Wrestlers Part 5

We were still in Pre-Show crawl mode when the nights entertainment was beginning....The Mustache contestants were gathering below.

Everywhere you look  someone is doing a photo shoot

Scott needed a Tiki Necklace to replace the 1980's Adventureland Tiki he no longer has....He picked up this cool one at the indoor vending

The party from the other balcony that crashed ours

"Don't look into the eyes of MARA"

The crowd below had assembled....We would make our way down in awhile---after some appetisers and rum cakes

Yeah --we finally made it downstairs....It takes awhile to get down there the larger the group you have

We can't miss the Burlesque.... (Even if my camera tried....Sorry for the bad quality pics --my camera apparently didn't like the lighting from the side of the stage.)

"The birds sing words and the flowers bloom...."

Where is that Gorilla from last year


The worm

Always entertaining

We had a blast ----especially when the Herb Albert Tribute began....Both nights on the main stage ended with great performances

Otto , Baby Doe and the Emcees.

"Is that a dog in your pocket ---or......"...You get the picture

Herb  was putting on a great performance 

And the people were dancing in front of the stage

I was getting my groove on.

Until Next Year----Which from the Theme sounds like it will be even better.

Tiki Oasis 2011 Whipped Cream, Herb Albert and Mexican Wrestlers Part 4 Shopping Oasis

Vintage,  Retro Tiki and More ---Shopping Shopping  and more shopping.
We didn't have a lot of money to spend this year --but still ended up with a new  SHAG  Hawaiian Shirt,  a Shag Art book.  Tiki ear rings and a hot pink dress for my wife and a couple of Tiki Tiki Torches for the backyard....   Here is some of the other stuff that was can refer to the Tiki Oasis website to see the list of all the vendors.

I love the style of these ...If I ever got around to having my collection of Weird Poems published--I'd like the cover art to be like this.

"SMASH  --Pinata fun..."

Cool Tiki in Artist's alley
 Unique Vintage

 Kim got her ear rings in here


Line for SHAG  Signing

It always amazes me how the vending area takes form every morning and then comes down and turns into an entertainment area every night
