I'm a long time user of the site but only now signed up for an account. I've been a fan of tiki before I even knew what tiki was; I collect vinyl and when ever I would come across an exotica album, I would have to pick it up because the covers were just so cool. It was only in 2000 when I walked by Sven's Book of Tiki did I discover how big the movement was and I've been hooked ever since then. Looking forward to building a home bar in the near future. I also just made my first trip to the Tonga Room in SF. That was a dream come true. Okay that's all for now, gotta go pick me up some Zombie head mugs at Trader Sam's!

Hey guys, Just signed up to the forum last month. My name's Keith but the Crazy Capizzi nick name came from my younger more extreme years. youtube the name if your curious. Anyway I carved some 17 years ago and hadnt touched a chisel till recently. This forum really inspired me to start carving again so here i am. thanks for all the encouragements so far. ps: if any one has some extra chisels they aren't using and want to send my way I will put them to good use. im working off a 3pc harbor freight chisel set.

I've been a member here before but have been inactive on this site for more than ten years so I thought I'd stop in and say hi, and renew my membership. Although I've been quiet on this site, I'm still as much of a tikiphile as ever, and go to Tiki Oasis every year (have since the early days in Palm Springs). Some of you already know me from Flickr site, or LottaLiving (where I was also a regular).
Not much to say about me, other than I live in San Diego and am originally from Honolulu. I'm an avid hobbyist photographer and I try to document whatever I can find of tiki out there.
At the suggestion of a friend, I'll post a few photos here that may be of interest.
Aloha and mahalo nui loa !

Greetings from Australia (or as Homer would say Opposite Land!)
I recently got into Tiki through my love of cocktails. Drinkboy’s cocktail web site led me to Beachbum Berry’s and before I knew it I was listening to Les Baxter and buying Tiki merchandise on eBay.
I’ve just put down my first patch of Pimento Dram. The recipe I used called for 150ml of lime juice which could be problematic if it decides to go off and ferment. I’ll let you know how it goes.
