Inundated with e-mails the past week or so with a slew of information -

M Modern Gallery will be hosting "The Sneaky Tiki" group show starting on Friday, May 6th.

Please join us at M Modern Gallery on Friday, May 6th from 7:00 pm until 11:00 pm for our group art show entitled "THE SNEAKY TIKI" featuring works from over 30 artists including Josh (SHAG) Agle, Tim Biskup, Dave Burke and Pizz to name a few. This show is dedicated to all things Tiki and the way Tiki has been sneaking its way back into the mainstream after a long hiatus from its heyday in the 50's and 60's. The show will conclude at the end of the weekend on Sunday May 8th.

This event is free and open to the public.

M Modern Gallery is located at 448 N. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262, phone 760 416-3611, web is and email is


Flyskyboy passed on two bits -

1. Gold Star Events is selling 1/2 price tickets for Shag With A Twist

2. Almost fell out of my chair at work when I saw this link, not a good thing since I'm seizure-prone and have a co-worker hoping to steal my pants.

Best thing about the merchandise release?

a. Looks like only 6 of the items are limited edition, with most of the editions being editions of 1955. Screw the $995 serigraphs, I'll take the slightly smaller mini-prints for $75.00!

b. In an effort to provide an equitable distribution of the limited edition event merchandise we have asked our Information Technology Department to assist us by supervising a Random Selection Process (RSP). The RSP eliminates the need to arrive early and stand in line. The RSP is a computer generated process using a list of Guest names and their desired merchandise selections and rankings. All Guest names, their merchandise selections and rankings are entered in the system. When all information has been input, a random list is created with the merchandise items that each Guests will be offered for purchase. For example, if an item has an edition size of 20 and 100 Guests show an interest to purchase this, the computer will randomly select 20 Guests who will be offered the opportunity to purchase the item. Maybe this will be used at the full-blown release also to limit the number of children having their necks stepped on by eBay sellers.

Decent edition sizes and this RSP thing almost makes up for the shameless promotion and high-priced cocktail party (at least we know the Agle children do not have to worry about affording their college educations).

I'll post pic's once I escape the cubicle (and the aforementioned trouser-thief co-worker).

Justb so everyone is prepared on June 25th - Disney DelivEARS's phone # is (800) 362-4533 (outside the United States (714) 781-7557).
