I heart Tiki Oasis! One of the last great kitschy good times.
Held in he entirety of the Hanalai Hotel in San Diego and splashing out into all the surrounding hotels and their respective bars, this annual tiki lifestyle extravaganza is an opportunity of a lifetime.
It is an enthusiastic giant size 3 day hotel party with tons of garage/punk/lounge performers, pin up girls and boys, collectibles, and…. tiki style clothing and streetwear.
Thursday, August 10 – Sunday, August 13th, 2017
In the Hanalai, which was just recently sold, which also means the debauchery level and beautiful chaos may never be this intense ever again. Corporate Debbie Downers will probably put the kibosh on the unrivaled revelry.
Be there by all means. If you make it, stop by the Popular Naughty / Danger Factory booth and buy THIS for example.
It’s a winner! But why wait? Buy this monkey RIGHT HERE! (click it baby)
So much retro street smart style. Love the whole thing.

Here it comes. 2 updated designs that will hit the shop just after Comic Con.
It’s going to be a fun year.
Sooo swamped with setting up the shop. But really, I have gotten a lot of complaints about not doing the modern online shop thing. A SUPER pain that deserved my procrastination, although Godaddy and SHopify have made things a lot easier. It WILL be done by June 15, 2017 and we will be also do pre-orders for the new design production to bring to the San Diego Comic Con in July. Remember, these are the original style of printing. Screen printing. Not the ooky on demand stuff that feels like a rubber badge and weathers so poorly. This is forever print. Even though I have been doing this kind of design for decades, I am in search engine competition with all of those insty-print joints. Especially for the word burlesque, and burlesque t-shirts.
As a result, I have to kinda lay it on thick here with overly descriptive terms. I will try to at least keep it entertaining though.
Once the site is fully functional we can better create this sharing site for Geeks, Freaks, the Tongue in Cheeks, and other explorers of art and music. Comic News too. There is some great alternative stuff out there not getting enough attention. We’ll help.

Kong- the third in my lifetime. That’s a LOT of recycling, but then again Spiderman has kind of won that short attention span thing that Hollywood loves so much. Here are some green-haired thoughts from our co-conspirator, ComicBookGirl19.
And MAN what a reminder of that friggin’ twenty buck ape suit in King Kong VS Godzilla. Hilarious violence! Yay!
It will be remade again soon. Just as soon as we master a bit of Virtual Reality programming. We will adventure right beside the soldiers and feel the warm blood splash on us in an expensive VR environment and all get sore necks fromm staring up at a towering Kong leering down on us.
I’d buy THAT for a dollar!
3-2017 New Episodes of important comic news. Getcher Giant Size Super Special Collider Heroes NUMBER 100 with many a guest star including Comic Book Girl 19. THEN, scroll down and hear her thoughts on LOGAN.
It just keeps looking better. This pic of Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster is such a small sample of how much Marvel cares about weaving things together.
Yes, he could be a LOT bluer. But ya know maybe spray tans are trending amongst the immortal crowd. George Hamilton may have some influence here.
But even better is the freaking gorgeous Hela, played by my long-standing starcrush, Cate Blanchett. Wow. I am looking forward to this crossover fest in a big, hulking way.
Thor: Ragnarok, opens November 3, 2017
Time is slow when waiting… am I immortal yet?
I am still gathering data, still meeting important people in self-important people meetings, still waiting for answers to other questions that allow me to put together time commitments, THEN I can really work on this (here) online project.
In the meantime. Check out this stunning record-setting mural my old buddy Shepard Fairey did in Las Vegas, where he was met and gifted by yet another old buddy Branden Powers with pizza. (Yes it IS a small world.)
Street artist Shepard Fairey’s mural on The Plaza in downtown Las Vegas.
Yes. I am killing time and sharing excuses while showing my friends achievements that don’t seem to have those to whine about. EVERYONE knows about Shepard and Obey and will know even more with whatever he’s about to do next, since he’s a super political activist and I am sure the Trump thing will not sit well. Already Shepard has issued some beautiful Women’s Rights posters. There will be more.
(first 3 shown bottom, keep scrolling)
That’s Shepard on the left and Branden lurking.
Branden? Oh he’s just the serial entrepreneur and serial that’s-just-so-crazy-it-might-work idea man that brought Vegas- The Golden Tiki AND teamed up with the son of Evel Knievel to bring EVEL PIE to the Fremont District in downtown Las Vegas.
Outside and Inside
Maybe that is why I am subconsciously thinking of them as I’m somewhat mired by circumstance. Shepard is the hardest working artist, hell maybe even the hardest working person of all, that I have ever met. And Branden? That cat is one of the old school people responsible for the EDM scene as it is. He was a GIANT rave promoter before EDM became an uhh, abbreviation (?), and since has been a juggernaut of weird throughout the wastelands of Nevada. They are two of my heroes and should be yours too.
Back soon, Rex

We will be vending all weekend, well, my lovely assistant will be vending all weekend while I carouse by the pool, seek creatures, and bask in the zillions of pieces of art, craft, design and style that is the world of Tiki Oasis. All weekend, a complete takeover of a hotel, bar, and pool, with dozens of parties and bands going on all night in the suites after the seminars, tutorials, performances and rum tastings are over. Baby Doe and Otto von Stroheim have a real cultural phenomenon here.
