"Kapu Cave" by Robb Hamel.
A comission "Velvet Painting" for my home tiki bar the "Kapu Cave" 2008
Word up on me in general? I'm about Hangin' with Family and Friends. Tiki Mug Collecting, Disneyland, All things Tiki, Tiki Events, Travel, Music, Golf, The Ballet and my Charity efforts.
I collect Tiki Mugs and all things Tiki and Hawaiian. At the present time I have over 900 (without repeats) tiki mugs and glasswares from famous restaurants, bars and Polynesian Getaway places from the 1950's and 1960's to the present day from all over the globe.
In my collection you will also view some amazing art pieces(mugs, bowls, sculptures)by today's most brilliant ceramic artists as well as Carvers and Sculpters. They are:
*Crazy Al Evans-Represents, Bones Prod. - Tikimainia - Ape Band
*Cass McClure-Ocea Otica
*Danny Gallardo-Tiki Diablo
*Gecko'z South Seas Art
*Paul & Stuckie-Munktiki
*Tiki Farm & their collective talents
Please see my mug collection at Ooga-Mooga (link below) and please feel free to read my "Blog" here on my space and check out Duke Carter's video on Tiki Mug Collecting as well as the "Lowndown on Lowbrow" It might help to explain the madness.
My Chosen Charity is Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. With The Rancho Vista Woman's Golf Club as Ways & Means Chair I helped to achieve and surpass our goals. "Rally For The Cure” supports the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We held our Annual Golf Tournament on May 6 2007 we raised $13,000 Dollars this day & had a blast!

Hey, did I mention Tiki?
My Son can sum up a movie in less than 30 seconds seriously, my son can write, draw, paint and play Drums, and makes me laugh endlessly, and he is Brilliant. RJ has been writing short stories since he was a little kid always amazing everyone. At this time my son is a Studio Grip i.a.s.t.e. Hollywood Local #80 and is finishing college. RJ will no doubt win a Oscar someday so remember the name.
My Daughter KD is a Dancer, A Ballerina, a "Soloist" with the Antelope Valley Ballet Company amongst other dance commitments. KD has starred as "Alice" in AVB's 2006 "Alice in Wonderland", and "Hermia" in William Shakespere's (music of Felix Mendelssohn) Ballet "A Mid Summer Nights Dream" in 2008. This December 2008 KD will be a Soloist again as “The Dew Drop Fairy” as well as a Demi Soloist "Snowflake" with the Antelope Valley Ballet Company's 10 year Anniversary performance of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Holiday Classic "The Nutcracker Ballet". "Kate" has performed as a member of the Corps de Ballet, Soloist, Demi Soloist and Spécialiste de Pas de Deux in several Ballets since 1998.

Who I'd like to meet:
I love funny people, who make me laugh without end. People that fart in bed (checking to see if anyone reads this shit). Ridiculously smart people make me tingle... Tiki Mug collectors, got to dig, Disneyland, Tiki Bar Hopping, Gallery Hopping, Hipsters & Geeks with a well rounded taste in music who also enjoy, Concerts, Theater, Travel-Road trips, The Beach, Studies of Polynesian culture, myths & folklore, "Poly Pop Culture", Mid Century pop cult of all types and design.
It Occurs to me that no matter how I fill this section out it sounds like "For a good time call..." NO one needs to go there. I'm just here for my own entertainment and cheap laughs so if you laugh fine. Don't take anything here too deeply or I will make fun of you till you cry. I am inquisitive if your not to boring I might even watch your home videos...depending...Do not ask me if I want to hook up or what I'm wearing right now. Oh! and don't send me your naked pictures! well... ok maybe but only if you've seen any part of me naked!

"Lowdown on Lowbrow"
The Tahitian Terrace was Disneyland's answer to the Tiki restaurant. The location was originally part of the Plaza Pavilion and known as the Pavilion Lanai. In the summer of 1962 the facility opened as the Tahitian Terrace with scheduled show times for a Polynesian Dinner review. In April of 1993, the restuarant closed and was re-imagineered into an Alladin Dinner Theater which performed poorly. Today the space is an Alladin themed story telling location in Adventureland.
