Hello Tiki Central,

Brett O'Bourke here; Producer and director of the upcoming documentary Plastic Paradise. I just wanted to post a heads-up that the website for the film is finally up and we'll be updating it with all kinds of good stuff over the coming weeks/months. Presently, there is a teaser reel, videos from PKNY and Oceanic Arts, behind-the-secnes photos and quotes from folks featured in the film. We shot a tremendous amount of footage in Ft. Lauderdale (at two Hukilau), LA and NYC and we can't get it all in the film (for example, the full cut we made of Angie Pontani's finale performance in the rain at this year's Hukilau is smoking hot!), so we'll be putting lots on the website. Please be sure to let us know what you think and ask questions (there is a little question mark icon at the top of the navigation where you ask us stuff).

Mahalo,

Brett

From Richard Boccato's own files:

Jolly Stomper

7 ˝ oz. Fresh lime juice
3 ˝ oz. House-made orgeat
1 ˝ oz. Falernum
10 oz. Gin
Red wine float

Build in a blender pitcher. Blend with one scoop of crushed ice, and pour into a flower vase. Top with crushed ice, and swizzle. Float red wine, and top with crushed ice again. Garnish with orchids, and serve.

When is this going to be available to purchase? I could have sworn I saw a copy of the DVD for sale at the Hukilau in the vendor area but forgot to swing back by and buy it. I cannot find any purchase info online. Thanks.

I think that was the DVD of Tiki you saw. Could be wrong.

Could have been but I have the DVD of Tiki and the one I saw I swear had a different cover. It was on the table when you first walked in that was selling all the different photos and prints.

Must have been another DVD. Plastic Paradise probably won't be available on DVD until late fall/early winter. We'll let you know ... once we figure it out.

The film will be offered to PBS affiliates nationally in early Sept. and we'll be sure to post TV schedules as we receive them both on this thread and on our website.

We were thrilled to screen at Hukilau and have been pleased as punch at the positive response.

best,

CM

Kudos on the film, I enjoyed it very much and look forward to purchasing a copy. I think it compliments "The DVD of Tiki" very well in that "The DVD of Tiki" focuses on original Tiki-style and "Plastic Paradise" drills down on the Tiki Revival. I agree with the latter's hypothesis that the Tiki Revival is a Post-Punk phenomenon.

Dig it. Pittsburgh is home to the original PBS, so we sure as hell better be getting it here!

Can you also please update us if you find out when it'll be screened? It'll be nice to be able to post it around to make sure that tons of people watch it!
