Yah but WHERE was the Tiki Ti !? And where was Alan and Michael's home bar!? I talked about home bars and home mixology, what an escape and great game to play Tiki is....It was all so brief....

They must have had not like a 1:6 shooting ratio, but a 1: 16 , shooting sooo much more than what ended up in the piece.

Oh well, I remember hating that when I worked for German NDR TV in the 70s: You get to subject that is interesting, but hen you're forced to rush thru it.

I sometimes actually make the "crack-o-" joke myself!
As soon as the segment shows up online I'm going to watch, cant wait. This is the first time I've really missed having TV.

I saw it, too. Great! I caught it on mp4 if CBS doesn't make it available.

Sven, I am so sad I missed it. I'm hopeful that it will show up on U-Tube. I am super happy to see my Zombie Hut mug on top of your CD shelf against the pillar in this photo. That brought a huge grin to my face.



I hope you got the resin chunk lamp booklet I sent by email this week. If not let me know.

I am looking forward to seeing this in the future. Cheers, Wendy

I did, thank you. I think CBS should shoot a segment about resin chunk lamps -they look so YUMMY!

I did like like their Earl of Sandwich franchises segment, though they should have segued that into the "Sandwich Isles"!

Just sent the video to Dailymotion: "The return of the Tiki bar"

Not HDTV quality, but not bad for my trusty $20 Pinnacle Video Transfer device.

I agree Sven. Exactly as I thought also, too much drink, not enough Tiki. But still better than nuthin'. Good job by you!

Oh goodie!
Since this Sunday it was a food special edition I expected the leaning towards mixology, that's why I specifically talked about the resurgence on the home front, about how people nowadays got into mixing at home in their very own, self-built Tiki havens - which then would have been a perfect lead in to show Alan and Michael's basement bar, where, I was told, CBS filmed them making a Beachbum Berry drink - who I had mentioned as the reviver of the craft earlier!

But when you have to start from scratch and explain the basics, I guess there is not enough room for all of the facets and evolution of the phenomenon. Too bad, but I am certainly grateful for the exposure I got and that they showed my book - and even played a soundbite from the Sound of Tiki (Sabu's flexi disc jingle, that is!)

Great Show Sven. I just got off of work and rushed to my DVR to make sure I recorded it. I did and it looked awesome.

The Tiki segment was OK, But the Olive Oil & Toaster segments rocked!

(But Seriously) you came across very well Sven, the Tiki segment was too short
But at least was shown in a positive way, It is a mystery to me why the Media
pretty much ignores the "Tiki Revival" It's colorful & has booze to start with.....
