Back when I was a kid, Blogs were called 'imaginary friends' and were only slightly more pathetic.

Martin Denny RIP

If you've ever been into the Tiki scene, or just enjoy getting rocked up on rum drinks, you've have probably heard the music of Martin Denny. A wonderful mix of Xylophone and, bird noises and other island sounds, Denny's music provided the soundtrack for the Hawaiiana movement that started in the 50s and 60s and endures through to today. Denny passed away in Hawaii at age 93 last week.

If you need me, I'll be outside pouring a Flaming Scorpion Bowl on the sidewalk, you know, for my dead homey...
