this picture of james a.k.a. Tikibars is very unflattering.....i feel it should be removed immediately from this thread, for as a wiseman (wiseguy?) once said.."it not only makes james look bad, but whoever posted it as well".....


hanford, please remove this pic from this thread.....james deserves better than this...

thanks.

The point of the picture is to point out the look of extreme distress one makes when drinking a Volcano at Trad'r Sam- one of the worst drinks ever concocted. (Although it wins points for accurately recreating the taste of children's chewable aspirin) You'll note my pained expression in a similar photo.

I've had one of those drinks, and I'd say that given the circumstances, James looks downright suave.

My money says you were looking at Thomas Kincade. My face still has that "whathe...?" expression.

Jacqui(sp?), we went to find you to offer you a ride home after the bus Saturday night, but *poof!* you were gone in the night! If you, or Midnite or Camper or any other citydwellers, ever want a ride back from Forbidden Island to the city some Wednesday, let me know. I generally go there straight after work in Menlo Park, but I go home to the city afterward.

Mahalo nui loa to everyone who was involved in pulling this crawl together. It's always an amazing time, and we had an absolute blast. I was especially tickled to get to see so many friends from out of town. The Crawl is *the* best way to see all the tiki that San Francisco has to offer. If there's one thing I love, it's sharing new tiki experiences with people.


p.s. Inky is my favorite cranky chicken.

Ain't that the truth; it actually gives The Quicksand a run for its money...



Congratulations, Thayer, you are now officially one of the KoolKids™. Hooray for you!!!

Hi Humu, thanks very much! Not to get all technical, but those are all taken with a Canon 40D and a Canon 28mm f1.8 prime lens, wide open at 1.8 and 1600 ISO. We got it around last Christmas and have taken over 7000 photos since then (!!?!). Give a new camera to a couple tinkerers with a 3 year old, and that's what happens.

While we're on the subject... Inky, your fisheye pics were great - the flash with the sort of vignetting effect puts some kind of magical zip in those (must be the zazz?). Also, croe67 some of yours have beautiful lighting, especially at Trad'r Sams (I think?).

-Randy

It's all in the ZAZZ and remebering to take the lenscap off.

Hahaha, nice one Dave.


(For those not in the know, the ever acerbic Tipsy McStagger is making reference to a time when he was asked to remove a supremely unflattering photo of yours truly from a thread about one of my book signing events. He complied with the request, but we all knew he'd find a way to seek revenge!)
