Think you would have a cash $ cow within the Tiki community on this film IF you could buy copies. Would also serve as a great learning tool for people that may not know about, but may like to get into Tiki! Thortiki

I would buy it! I doubt they are going to air it on Vermont Public Television.

well you can't buy a DVD of Plastic Paradise but you will be able to buy the DVD of the French documentary that is currently shooting with Sven in LA and will premiere at his art show in Paris this summer!

Details will be posted on TC as soon as they are available.

But first I need to ask if anyone has any family home movies or found footage that is copyright free that they would like to share with the French film crew.

If you do please email me here:

thanks, Otto

Beautiful yet coincidingly embarrassingly wrong. Great features on some great friends. Yeah, not enough of the protagonists presented in this. Small research. Being a fan of the Big Lebowski at least like that they put that in there. What does that have to do with Tiki? I don't know. But I love the big Lebowski. Who the heck are a lot of those people in the video? It was okay. Better than most.

What was so wrong? I only got through half of it last night because I had to put the kid and myself to sleep. I'll finish tonight.

Did not see the Big Lebowski thing?

"Who the heck are a lot of those people in the video?"
Ha! Tikifarm mug buyers, different coast.
Bosko would be good.

Big Lebowski reference - using Dylan's "The man in me" during the bowling sequence.

Oh ok,
I think there may have been some people from that other tiki group.

Saw it this morning, after my dvr faithfully recorded it for me...looks like KCET will be showing it again this month, March 10, 12 and 14. I never knew that King Kukulele used to play down at the senior center down by my work, I mostly remember him playing at The Hub coffee shop in Fullerton back in the 90s...

It was alright - as I've thought and others have also said, it sorta seemed like a lot of focus was on the Mai Kai. I believe it was filmed more on the east coast than anywhere, so that might explain it. It would have been nice to see more locations in SoCal (some bias there I'll admit) given that they mention how SoCal has all the good joints, but it also depends on when this was filmed as well.

I liked it overall because its more exposure to tiki and upholds the quality of it, not the cheapness it was reduced to by the 90's.
