I came to tiki via some of my other nostalgic interests, specifically classic cocktails (and barware) and mid-century Disney. Some other interests include (in no particular order):

Old time radio (favorites include Fibber McGee and Molly, Gunsmoke, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar)
World's fairs
Classic movies and classic Hollywood
Early 20th century architectural movements (Craftsman, Art Deco, Streamline Moderne)
1920s-1950s automobiles (aesthetics, mostly; I couldn't talk about how they work)
Most forms of early jazz (Dixieland, Big Band) and mid-century popular music before Rock and Roll (crooners, girl singers, "easy listening" stuff) and a real guilty pleasure in Lawrence Welk
