Of course it is.

And Mike, "latecomers" like you and me missed out on it.

But you don't need the internet to order cocktails in the Tiki bar. THAT'S the real Tiki Culture !!

Amen to that! If you still get chills down your spine when hearing a beautiful old Hapa Haole song like "sweet someone", then you don't really need whatever the current concept of "Tiki" is.

great sentiment lucas. i am Not an expert on tiki but i do like it and that is why i am here, to learn and enjoy. IMHO, it doesn't matter if you know the complete tiki history and are a purist, but rather that you enjoy it and want to learn more and are trying to keep it alive even if you are not expert purist. flame on time prolly. oh well such is life.





pssst. i don't care.

Since I am self diagnosed as having adult ADD and can't concentrate on too many of the threads in Bilge, because of all the words, I say we should have more threads that have lots of pictures.

How 'bout a "photo disassociation" thread?
Or.... pictures of clouds that look like something other than clouds.
Or... pictures of your migrating moles and its distance traveled with original location, current location and projected location.

Ah ha!! A thread that posts no words OR pictures!?!? I could read pages and pages of that in NO time.

My 2˘:
I'm primarily a mug collector, and the Tiki Marketplace forum is very valuable to me. Granted, the number of eBay ads can be annoying, but I appreciate having a place for TC'ers to offer stuff to others.

New threads we need, I propouse:

*The Hanfords™ Tiki Academy Awards
*Strange coincidences, synchronicity, serendipity, chance and weirdness like that.
*Why Tiki? (Why you like it so much?)

I was fine with this thread as just another derailed late night toss off. But then Zeta goes and makes suggestions for a few threads which could actually be genuinely interesting...How the hell do I deal with that???

Hey, before we get all derailed from some of the great brainstorming here, I think it's essential to point out that this is not an anti-dinner thread. Some of my best friends eat dinner. The point is that there are nuances and variations that are left uncovered by the existing threads, and they're crying out for new threads. Sure there's a thread called What did you "Make" for Dinner. But not a single one of Boris' great ideas for dinner-related threads overlaps with that one. Let's give credit where it's due - that's some good creative thinking there by Boris, without stepping on anybody's toes with existing threads. If we all just put our heads together, we can come up with some great new threads for TC, such as...

What did you "Eat" for Dinner?
(Note, the other thread has its rule that "you have to make it yourself" so this thread is ENTIRELY different)

What did you "Prepare" for Lunch?

What did you "Consume" for Breakfast?

What did you "Snack On" between Meals?

Do you "Brush" your teeth after a meal?


As for whether there should be a distinction between tiki dinner and just any old dinner in the "Tiki Drinks and Food" forum, let me just remind everyone that it's not called "Tiki Drinks and Tiki Food". So I don't know about you all, but that reads to me as ANY FOOD! Plus, as AtomicTikiPunk says, tiki is all about fun, food, and drink, so ANY discussion of food is on topic for TC, right? Well anyway, THIS THREAD is all about new threads, so maybe what we really mean to say is that there should be a new thread about whether THAT THREAD should be where it is.

As for the other ideas posted here, some of you are being a little cryptic as to the new thread ideas you're suggesting. F'rinstance, I wasn't sure what to make of this one:

New thread: JOHN-O's guide to the REAL tiki culture

I couldn't really tell what the thread suggestion was; this topic may have been more or less covered already in other posts, but not in its OWN THREAD, so I say, make a new thread! But this following one is a great idea, right in line with the spirit of THIS thread.

YES YES YES!! Exactly! You don't even need to run a search for that one! I think we can all just safely assume this is a topic that has never been covered (at least not under that subject name) here on TC.

I think we're turning a corner. Keep em coming!

(ps - I know this may come off as teasing some people; please keep in mind this is Bilge and just kidding and all that.)

What camera did you use to take the photo of what you made for dinner?

What room in the house was the photo taken of what you made for dinner?

Was the water in the sink too hot and you had to wait for it to cool down before you did the dishes after eating what you made for dinner?

How about a "Forbidden on TC" thread. It would contain such over used gems as:

"Why don't you just have a Mai Tai and relax?"
"Where's the aloha?"
"I am not a purist and I don't know what tiki is, but I like it."
"Look at this long round log shaped thing I just put a face on and now call it a tiki! What do you think?"
"First carving"
"Parrots"
"Pirates"
"I hate TC, but here is my crap to sell/event to hype, that I want you to give me your money for."
"Woofmut"
