Be a host to a new cult phenomenon…the PUNAGNOME !

This past week I was the first of a growing number of people around the globe to partake in what I like to call an “interactive art and social experiment”. PunaGnome.
Basically, PunaGnome is a travelling garden gnome. He originated in Puna, Hawaii, and already has a travel itinerary booked until February of 2007! He’s “hosted by different people for a week or so, and is photographed in and around the host’s city, and is then sent off to a new destination.

A travelogue is kept and Bud tells stories of his visits.

I’m very excited to have been the first to host “Bud”, and I even gave him a travel companion, TIKYAKI JR . I think this will become a cult phonemenon, and it will be great to have all my own Tikiyaki Jr photographed all around the globe.

To become a host, go HERE. Better do it fast, BUD is on a fast track to stardom.

    In that photo, I can just hear Bud asking Tiki Jr., “Hey Teek’, where’s a good place to eat around here?”

    Teek’ replies, “There’s this place in Huntington Beach called Aloha Grill that serves these killer ‘Hawaiian Drums’ chicken wings”.

    Bud replies, “Shoots! Let’s hit it!”.

    As their eating, Teek’ tells Bud, “Man I’m kinda’ worried about this touring thing. This guy named Pomai is gonna’ host us in February, and he wants to take a picture of me on atop a pile of charcoal. Sounds sketchy.”

    Bud replies, “Word up”. lol

    Warning Pomai. Just so you know, Tikiyaki Jr is down with Madame Pele’s posse. Harm Tjr and it’s very likely that bad things will happen. Ever hear those stories about removing lava rocks from the Big Island ?
    Something to think about….

    Do you know what species of wood Tiki Jr. is made of? I like to smoke meats and fish using Kiawe, which is similar to Mesquite. T.Jr’s complexion is fare, so chances are the wood isn’t dense enough for smoking. Probably a good fire starter though. 😛
