Tiki News: New Mug at Trader Sam's

Just another reason to head on out to Trader Sam's at Downtown Disney.  The Halloween season rings in with a new Zombie Mug at Trader Sam's by Tiki Farm...

And the Zombies are getting really exited over this news.  They are literally losing their brains over it

Here is a look at this new creature perfect for this time of year.

Jungle Movies: Mark of the Gorilla 1950 Jungle Jim

Mark of the Gorilla... 1950  6 out of 10
The Jungle Jim movie series.... Tarzan  (Johnny Weissmuller)  in a Jungle Cruise outfit.   In this Jungle Jim movie from 1950 he is up against bad guys that are searching of Nazi treasure. The villains are willing to dress up in gorilla costumes to like something out of every single Scooby Doo episode to scare off the game wardens --who like Jungle Jim are too stupid to know the difference between a gorilla and a bunch of guys in gorilla costumes.  It takes Jungle Dim (misspelled on purpose quick awhile to figure out this brain twister. Despite that this Jungle Adventure has all the typical trapping.   He wrestles a leopard.....He wrestles a lion and then a guy in a gorilla outfit.   He is attacked by a fake eagle on a string and jumps off a cliff to encounter a giant underwater sea snake.  There are many fist fights and gun battles ---stock footage of wild animals and  cheesy dialogue.
It is amazing that after dozens of Tarzan movies and 13 Jungle Jim features that the ability to act never quite was figured out by Weissmuller.

I couldn't find a trailer for the film so instead share this great parody from Monty Python

International Tiki Marketplace at Don the Beachcombers

Need your Tiki fix.....Head on down to the next International Tiki Marketplace at Don the Beachcomber's.   This Sunday as part of my anniversary celebration that included Wine Tasting and a nice dinner in Newport Beach we started the day off with a little Tiki

To find more about it go here

Don the Beachcomber's in Sunset Beach is the go to place for local Tiki...There was a show later that night with The Hula Girls and Untouchables that we would have gone to as well if we didn't already have plans for the night.  The International Tiki Marketplace is a nearly monthly event that has Island style  entertainment---and Tiki Vending....Head on down for a minimal price which can then be redeemed for food or drink...(both of which are great) and enjoy a getaway to some Island entertainment.

Your sure to find something good for your Tiki Collection whether it be a mug or Tiki or artwork

Until my next Tiki themed adventure....
