Don the Beachcomber is having palm tree problems? That's too bad.

Don't be silly. Clearly a thread titled "D o n the B e a c h c o m b e r's palm tree problems??" would be full of glowing opinions about the robust leafy beauty and supple lankiness of the palm trees there. On the other hand, palm tree purists might be more alarmed seeing a thread titled like this:

"D o n the B e a c h c o m b e r's palm tree excellence!"

If I saw that, I'd have to conclude that it must have pages of negative scuttlebutt about (hypothetical) problems with the palm trees at DtB's.

Is this plastic tree from Margaritaville Tiki?

If Jimmy Buffet owned a fake palm tree that I got on ebay, would it be worth more?

It's "Don the Beachcomber" Not "Don the Beachcombers" or "Don the Beachcomber's" or "Don Beach's Combover."

inspired by GROG.)

Some topic threads on TC take a fresh existential approach to things. Using specific terms in the thread title is rather banal, because then the reader already has a rough idea what the topic is about, and there's no mystery. So these threads bring new life to the forums that are otherwise full of just so many other threads that are overt and topically coherent. We need more topics along those lines, like f'rinstance...

Anyone seen something before? If so, what was it?

Anyone ever been there?

Done that?

What the heck is this?

Huh?

What's that pinging sound?

Where is this from?

Where should I be right now? Can I get a ride there?

Please help identify me.


And in an offshoot of this existential style, there's another form of speculative "possible world" topics. These threads are not about subjects that are related to tiki, or even once were related to tiki. No, these are about things that might be related to tiki in some plausible alternate world. Naturally it's customary to post about interesting but non-tiki things in Beyond, but that's different. I'm talking about the innovative practice of posting about potential tiki connections in the topical or General forums! Some suggestions for more topics along these lines...

If someone added some tikis to this house I'm selling, it could be a tiki house

If someone added some rum to this drink I'm drinking, it could be a rum drink

Nice work Randy,

My 3 favorites -

Where should I be right now? Can I get a ride there?

If someone added some tikis to this house I'm selling, it could be a tiki house

If someone added some rum to this drink I'm drinking, it could be a rum drink



Here's some new topics I'd like to see but they may already exist -

If you think my questions are annoying online, just wait until you meet me in person

and

If Tiki is supposed to be so much fun, why does everyone have such a short fuse?

They actually go together as a set.

I already posted the add Tikis to make this a Tiki house...that is so last month.

We could combine a lot of errant threads with a standard picture into...
Is this Witco?

this is how you would describe the sound of a hammer hitting a nail squarely on the head.

Prowhotheus? That question has too much ambiguous symbolism to answer. I don't recall writing on Proyoutheus, or Proanybodytheus for that matter. But I think I'm missing the symbolic implication.

Hmm, maybe that was in Beyond Tiki. If so, no offense but that's just the regular old convention. On the other hand we see more innovative threads talking about things like potential tiki party rooms in General Tiki.

Since we have been bantering on about symbolism of late
How about "What is the Symbolism of my fake Tiki?"

How about some of these threads?

"Here is my home Tiki Bar, Which I will never build!"

"Things that are not Tiki, But I want to make Tiki"

"Why am I in denial that most Witco is ugly? and it belongs in a Pimp's apartment"

"How can you call them "Hipsters" when they all look and dress the same?"

"All new bands of the last decade have stupid names!"

I am happy to put a smile on your face Boris's
And if it helps you to forget all the people I have killed, Opps!
well it was worth it.

One more for the road: "Why does Witco look so good on a 70s Porn set?"
