Help us meet our monthly goal:
After many years of muttered threats and garbled incoherencies, David Arnson (me) of Insect Surfers has released an 18-page coloring book, 'Insect Surfers & Alien Allies'. Pictures range from well, insects surfing (and playing guitar, pictured here), to bizarre and fanciful extraterrestrial landscapes. First hundred copies are all autographed and I'm happy to personalize any for you, too. Use this link below if you wish to order, and note that POSTAGE IS INCLUDED in the price.
I was busting my nuts trying to get this out BEFORE the holiday season, but various printer bugaboos were against me. Of course, this is a timeless gift, anyway,right?!
Happy Holidays everyone!
Seems like we should have done this a while ago, but finally we have added some merchandise to our Bandcamp page:
We will be adding more over the next few months. We appreciate the folks who have purchased and donated their dollars to The Me Gustas. Thank you for taking your time to peruse our site. Once again, happy holidays and here is to a reverb filled new year. Cheers.
I know I don't contribute much here, but as a member of the surf music and surf drumming community for 30+ years I figured it was ok to post this.
On 11/25/17, while playing a gig with my band the New Shockwaves, I suffered cardiac arrest and died slumped over my kit. I was quickly attended to with CPR [from my ex-girlfriend and still friend] and then by the 911 team that arrived. I was brought back to life, so I'm still around to tell this story. I've been in the hospital since, and on Monday 12/11/17 I will have my Mitral heart valve repaired. If repairing it doesn't work then I'll get a new mechanical valve installed. I'm also getting a defibrillator installed. I will be better than new at this point once I recover from the surgery.
I look forward to getting back on the kit and continuing to play for both the New Shockwaves and Fascinating Creatures Of The Deep.
Finally, a friend of mine started a GoFundMe page to help cover medical expenses. (I also can accept PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org). I have no expectations from anyone, but I will put it out there nonetheless.
Surf's still up!
After a long hiatus The Tikinauts will be returning to the stage December 23 at Wauwatiki in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. The Tikinauts are three-quarters of The Revomatics and perform the classic surf hits. Surf's up at 10:30 PM. DJ at 9:30 PM. Live surf music, exotic cocktails and Tiki - all in one place! Wow! Link
