It seems that, in addition to tiki, there are other nostalgic interests that many people share here. I've been in a particularly nostalgic mood lately and have been indulging some other interests (through books, movies and music, mostly), and got wondering how many others here are into some of them and if there are others that I did not mention. In no particular order, they are:

Surfing movies (both documentary and fictional) and music (particularly surf guitar instrumentals)
Hot Rods, custom and drag cars
Beatnik culture (including jazz)
Space age and sci-fi culture
Cocktail and lounge culture (Rat Pack!)
Googie architecture (and other prominent styles from 50s and 60s)
Elvis movies
Ads and magazines from 50s and 60s
Just about any movie or TV show that reflects the 50s 60s culture

Any that I left out?

I guess I didn't think of this as nostalgic because I have regularly listened to it for twenty years, sop to me it's contemporary. BTW The landlord is trying to evict CBGBs and there is a big effort here in NYC to save it.

I intended to include Spy culture- really bad oversight. I also love spy music- Theme from Bond, Peter Gunn, etc.

Old time radio - I particularly like mystery/detective shows from the 40's and 50's! To those who have never given them a listen, check out the CBS show "Suspense" that ran from 1942 until 1962 - great stuff, kinda like Hitchcock for your ears!

Westerns - the 1950's and 60's nostalgic interpretation of a previous era.

Cool. In a similar vein, I forgot to mention serials were shown in movie theaters before the main bill (also newsrteels are cool, too). When I was a kid in the 60's my father was in the Airforce in Spain. He had a part time job as a projectionist at the base theater, and used to take me to work with him. Even though they were about twenty years old at the time, they showed these serials before the movies. Two that come to mind are "The Black Whip" and "Radar Men from the Moon". The former was a western with a Zorro like hero and the latter was a guy with a helmet and rocket pack that fought evil. He was the character model for The Rocketeer movie not too long ago. I have both of these series on video.

Nostalgia for nostalgia. Also cool are the spaghetti westerns and their cool soundtrack music, typically from itqalian composers.
