anyone second this notion?

"officially uncool is officially uncool."

as well as boring, tedious, & not very tiki.

:wink:

Moreover, it's the source of most TCers chagrin. Just look through BOT or Tiki Road Trip to find scores of GREAT places that were labled uncool and/or unmarketable and were subsequently razed or (worse yet) remodeled.

K

everyone agrees: it's cool to be uncool! how's that for irony?

D

Hey does this mean Huey Lewis is cool again?? Damn I've waited fifteen years for this!!!

TK

Now, is it still cool to be cool by being alternative? or is alterative so main stream that it is passe? It seems like being different has become so common that the only way to not fit in, and hence be unique, is to do what ever is currently popular. Or is that uncool?

S

The word "cool" is so uncool that you guys are not even on the map anymore.

It's like arguing if you're "nifty" or "swell" or "boss.""Cool" is definitely not!

Ohhhhhh...... And here I thought this was a "just kidding" sarcastic thread. Boy am I uncool! or does that mean I AM cool?

M

Huey Lewis has a new album out! That's cool!

(not really)

Nice work Muggler! I see your UBL-Foo is as good as mine! Unless you REALLY knew the members of the Stray Mob, in which case you're freaky. I assume you will be at Hukilau, so I will send someone along with money for a Mai Kai Rum Barrel on me.

So close, Mikey...so close.

"Cool" is definitely not!

The word "cool" has been uncool for so long it's now cool again fool!

Cool words:
Bitchen
Keen
Hunky Dory
Rad
Killer

Uncool words:
Sweet
Nice
Fine
Money
Fresh

Jab, you are so money and you don't even know it!

But if it's uncool to be uncool, then would the oppositee hold true, and it's cool to be cool? If so then it would seem only logical that to be uncool must be uncool. Wait no, I mean yes. I'm getting a headache. I need a drink.

Better make it a cool drink.

Martin, I hated that phrase even right when Swingers came out. It's in the same group as 'you go girl' and 'oh no you didn't'.

I can't stand it when people say that stuff.

How about "gnarly" and "far out"?

Swingers was the worst film ever made.

No, really. Swingers was genuinely the single WORST FILM EVER.

Trader Woody

No, the worst movie ever made was Plan Nine fron Outer Space. I have it on tape if you want to borrow it. It's so uncool it's totally cool

Thank you, Martiki6!

The names of the Stray Mob was the only question I needed help on, and for that I turned to my favorite source -- allmusic.com

I think we can all agree that animated rapping cats who appear in Paula Abdul videos are definitely not cool!

Swingers was so psuedo-cool that it was actually nauseating. Plan 9 was fun. Swingers represented the death of fun, and that's why it was the world's worst movie.

Trader Woody

Randy, you're zazz!

You have to be careful if you're cool. Because if you get too cool you're hot, but then you might lose your cool. And get hot under the collar. At which point it's imperative to chill.

And this thread is now officially gone, man, hipsville, too much, outta sight!!!

Oh man, those are so last week!

This week it's as follows:

Cool words:

cashy
butter
monstrous
guppy
and sizzle

Uncool words:

Everything you have heard already.

You guys are so butter and you don't even know it...

Heh heh heh!

pele

how come so few of you got the joke of the
"pirate" thread?

T

Don't forget ZAZZ!!!! ZAZZ is the new cool. And saying something is 'totally tubular' has got to make a comeback soon too.

PS. I told you why I dind't get the pirate thread joke - I'M SLOW!

I'ld have to disagree, the worst and best movie ever was, "They Live" starring Roddie Piper. In my humble opinion this movie wins the title because Piper's character has the worst and best line in any movie ever made, "I came here to chew bublle gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum!!!".

But it was cool when Mars Blackman was sayin it (Spike Lee in those old 1980s Nike "gotta be the shoes" commercials).

By the way, some scientists have contacted me and warned that if we continue to keep talking about how Uncool is cool and that Cool is uncool, that we could create a chian-reaction that would cause the universe could start to implode and destroy itself.

Sorry about that Spike- There's no "sarcastic" emoticon to put after a sentence to be clear that you're being a smart ass. This is precisely what gets so many people on TC into hot water after they post. I was just giving jabbo a little grief.
