Back when I was a kid, Blogs were called 'imaginary friends' and were only slightly more pathetic.

Tiki, Hawaiiana and poseurs galore

Went to see the Tiki Now exhibit at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco last Friday. Overall, I found the show to be pretty boring. Shag's stuff is great, and there were a few interesting pieces, but overall, once you've seen one Tiki, you've seen them all.

And while I love a lot of the whole 'mid-century modern', 'swanky' lifestyle, an event like this really brings the poseurs out. That and holding any event in the tenderloin with free wine makes sure that you have a healthy mix of effite, trust fund pomposity and pants-filled homeless.
