Maybe some of us could setup a Tiki/beatnik scene/booth/bar at the next Burningman fest next summer. Dig? Anyone in? And do a talk-like-a-beatnik day!

Captain Beefheart is beat! A cohort of Frank Zappa back in the '60's & '70's, he would have been right at home on the '50's bebop scene. Last I heard he is out in the Mojave desert painting & digging life. He's a true American classic. Perhaps his song "Smithsonian Institute Blues" will be prophetic.



So true! The album "Trout Mask Replica" is beat poetry at it's best. How can a song called "Neon Meate Dream of an Octafish" not be beat?

Trout Mask Replica is the golden age of Beefheart as far as I'm concerned. His music is a wierd conglomeration of 50's beebop, 20's dada & 60's L.A. pop culture. A strange brew...and not for everyone. I've chased off more guests with Beefheart than Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music (which I put on intentionally to chase off guests).

Hmmm, A "Bolo" like Budenny or Beimler? Comrades, raise your fists in salute and join me! (BigBro, Smogbreather help me out):


Vor Madrid in Schutzengraben
In der Stunde der Gefahr
Mit der eisernen Brigaden
Sein Herz voll Hass geladen
Stand Hans, der Kommissar
Stand Hans, der Kommissar

Seine Heimat musst er lassen
Weil er Freiheitskampfer war,
Auf Spaniens blut'gen Strassen
Fur das recht der armen Klassen
Starb Hans, der Komissar
Starb Hans, der Komissar

Eine kugel kam geflogen
Aus der "heimat" fur ihn her,
Der Schuss war gut erwogen
Der Lauf war gut gezogen,
Ein deutsches Scheissgewehr
Ein deutsches Scheissgewehr

Kann dir die Hand draug geben
Derweil ich eben lad
Du bleibst in unserm Leben,
Dem feind wird nicht vergeben
Hans Beimler, Kamerad
Hans Beimler, Kamerad

Just got Munktiki's expresso-nik mug from Outre, very nice. I'm dying for the book but have to wait as I ordered the not quite ready Hardcover. Nice stuff for Tiki/Beat fans, like crazy.

McDougall, me a beat? Naw, just your average family man with a likeness for things slightly to very unusual and different but not too different.

Ten years ago people here were asking "What's a Beatnik ?"

Now we know.

Beatniks are Tiki !!

I always think of Maynard G. Krebs from the Dobie Gillis show.

I still have my dad's black beret from the 50's.
There is a Beat Museum in North Beach San Francisco. I never knew such a place existed.
