Your totally right. This issue (Pirating) is way bigger than my opinion. I had no right to dismiss the issue or to make light of it. You are entitled to think I was being disingenuous and insulting or mean spirited. Though, that was not my intention. I still don't get the big hulla baloo, the CD was cute, I did listen to it 3 or 4 times. Is it something I HAVE to listen to everytime I turn on the CD player, the awnser is still, no. Would I slap down a 20 for it, nope. This is just my opinion that I am sharing with the good folks at Tiki Central. They can take it or leave it! I am sure you know what they say about opinions.... Thanks, Hanford for giving us a place to share our thoughts, ideas and expierences, no matter how unpopular or mean spirited they might be. Chris y best of luck to you in your future ventures.

I downloaded the MP3's. Come on guys, I hope this is not for listening pleasure. It definitly is not my favorite thing to put in the cd player. It is basically a tour of Tiki Gardens, but how many times can you listen to it? It would be different if you could stroll through the Gardens at the same time, but we all know thats not going to happen. I dont know what the fuss is about this. I think it is worth about the cost of the cd I burned. No more. Thats my asshole opinion today. Thanks for reading, any insults are welcome.

Chris Y & Ernie, I think you'd have a winner on your hands if you came out with a NEW Tiki Gardens CD. As you've no doubt seen, the interest is certainly there, but the original LP works only from a historical, not musical perspective.

Perhaps it could be music 'inspired by' Tiki Gardens, keeping some of the spoken word elements of the original LP. There must be a fair number of current bands who'd jump at the chance to be involved, and if you package the CD well (Perhaps a nice little booklet with lots of Tiki Gardens photos) I imagine it'll fly off the shelves.

First it was the Tiki Bob mugs, now the Tiki Gardens LP. I think tiki stuff is as great as anyone else in here, but you guys get carried away! You make this big hubbub about a record, then when the copyright owners track you down and excitedly say "hey, all this excitement over OUR record?", you all say, "well actually, it wasn't that good." Then why make this big deal about it?!
Actually, I don't know why I'm surprised. People ALWAYS get booged down in stupid thing without thinking about WHY they became a member of whatever community they joined in the first place!
Ah, who cares. Why am I wasting my time typing this?

"I'm hearing it right now, chief, and if you are going to base your whole existence around it, then I pity you.

This sounds like music from a 1940's skating rink.

How much did you pay for the vinyl again? "


HAHAHA that's what I would have expected- falling on deaf ears dude..

sorry bro, but if you don't see the tiki genius in the LP, you need to go back and reread your Tiki News back issues

Ah, I get it now! This is an allusion to Double Crown's posts. You see, I'm Trader Woody, and Double Crown is A DIFFERENT PERSON. You keep making weak little potshots at me on the basis of another person's posts!

Once again, go back and read through these Tiki Gardens posts, taking care to note down who said what. It might help your cause slightly.

One at a time! I am still looking for the Pope in the pizza.

Will this be on the final, is there extra credit? Does anyone heer wanna borrow my Dale Carnegie book? Can I be a Tiki genius? I scored 144.

I think the excitement about the Tiki Gardens Lp was the fact that the original vinyl is so rare that 99 % of the TC members had never heard it. Once they heard it though, it didn't hold up to the high expectations that they placed on it.
They weren't being fickle, they just didn't know what it really sounded like.
Now it is time for me to have a drink!!

Listen, I like a good fight just as much (or more so) than the next guy - or girl. But this is just silly!

I agree with MrSmiley 100%! And I encourage anyone who has not heard the TG record to listen to it. It is a little different? Yes.
Did it meet MY expectations? Well, I don't know - I did not know what to expect, but I liked it.
Did it sound like skating rink music? Well, growing up in the 70's - 80's, my roller skating rink played a lot of Journey, Air Supply, Forigener and disco! But the TG cd has an organ quality that is kind of...I don't know...organish?
I think most of us will have the same opinion. It's good. It's nice to listen to something that is so rare and holds interest with us. But it's not something we'll listen to every time we turn our stereo on (I think DawnTiki said that).

But by all means, judge for yourselves! Regardless of what we think of the sounds, it's nice to hear it for yourself and think back on happier times when family oriented road side attractions existed, like this great place once did.

And it's nice that we can all have our own opinions, isnt it?

TraderRick, Your point is well taken, but debate is always exciting. I think this displays our passion for our obsession!
Don't get discouraged...this is kinda like family. You'll learn that in time my friend.

As for Fatheadavia...I've got your unworthy deaf ears, right here..."dude".
Yes, "*yawn*"...thats what I say.

Going back into my corner...
-C.

Coma...

Intubated, hydrated and fed, but in a perpetual vegetative state. Nonresponsive to all stimuli.

But still more fun than some "Tiki Gardens" LP!

And with each post, a little piece of the Tiki "Spirit" dies, and a bit more Tiki Hell takes its place.

Wise words. No more shall I respond to Fatty's posts, no matter how inane or insulting.

Looking forward to the Tiki Heaven that is TikiStock 2002.
