Breakfast with Bobble Tiki

THE DAILY WORD
Learn it, use it, spell it

Bellicose \BEL-ih-kohs\, adjective:

Inclined to or favoring war or strife; warlike; pugnacious.

USAGE EXAMPLE: John McCain’s campaign took a turn for the worse when the well known Senator from Arizona started distributing bumper stickers that read: John McCain â€" Bellicose Like Bush.


Breakfastatbobbletikis THE MORNING NEWS

MURDOCH: Down with the Dow.

CONGRESS: How to deal with Lobbyheads.

VIEW: Arrrrrrrrggghhh!

AUTOMOBILES: Driving champ goes back to school.

WEDNESDAY BLOWDOWN
You can stand atop the mountain and scream your naked desires to the universe or shed that synapse epilepsy and hug the South Sound today with your fellow man:

Tonight will be a busy night in the state capital. Of course, the politicians haven’t been in town for months, but that doesn’t mean the action stops. If anything, it picks up once the locals aren’t weighed down with bureaucrats in line in front of them for coffee at Batdorf and Bronson. Locust Street Taxi and AA will play in Sylvester Park at 7 p.m. The South Pacific Restaurant will host their jam night with Flux Capacitor. And O'Blarney’s Irish Pub will host Wicked Tinkers. Bobble Tiki had the wicked tinkers once, but something tells him this is something much more enjoyable. 

MUSIC: What's happening tonight.

As always, Bobble Tiki doesn't care what you do today because he doesn't even know you.  And unless you check out the Weekly Volcano's Web site, Bobble Tiki doesn't want to me you.  Besides, it's time to blow this joint because it's so obvious you are becoming further and further removed from all that is genuine and real and visceral and virtuous and Bobble Tiki doesn't play that with his morning bowl of Quisp.

OK, Bobble Tiki apologizes.  Please be his friend here.

Breakfast with Bobble Tiki runs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  Deal with it.

Breakfast With Bobble Tiki

THE DAILY WORD
Learn it, use it, spell it

Booboisie \boob-wah-ZEE\, noun:

A class of people regarded as stupid or foolish.

USAGE EXAMPLE: As he entered Martin Stadium for the first time, minutes before the Washington State Cougars took the field to battle Boise A&M (or some damn WAC school), John Gonnabeadrunksoon saw before him a slobbering sea of crimson booboisie â€" the likes of which he’d never see again.


Breakfastatbobbletikis WEEKEND BLOWDOWN
You can stand atop the mountain and scream your naked desires to the universe or shed that synapse epilepsy and hug the South Sound today with your fellow man:

Bobble Tiki just wants everyone to know he damn near filled this space with some promotion for Ruxton Towers’ show at Club Adrian this evening. Bobble Tiki had all but decided on it before he got to Club Adrian’s MySpace page. Bobble Tiki must say, he was a bit turned off by Club Adrian’s interests.

General: Music, Jesus.
Music: Good Bands.
Books: the Bible.
Heroes: Jesus.

Who would Club Adrian like to meet ?
Jesus.

Bobble Tiki prefers a little bit more diversity than that, so he’s going to recommend Fitz of Depression at Maggie O’Toole’s in Lakewood instead. Jesus was great and all, but Bobble Tiki would much rather meet Peter Criss.   

MUSIC: What's happening tonight.

As always, Bobble Tiki doesn't care what you do today because he doesn't even know you.  And unless you check out the Weekly Volcano's Web site, Bobble Tiki doesn't want to me you.  Besides, it's time to blow this joint because it's so obvious you are becoming further and further removed from all that is genuine and real and visceral and virtuous and Bobble Tiki doesn't play that with his morning bowl of Quisp.

Bombay Bistro open?

Hot tipper Kake just drove past Bombay Bistro and says it's open.  Anybody have a first taste report? â€" Jake de Paul

GritCity reports that the Bombay Bistro will open in mid-August.  Apparently the six or seven cars and open door that hot tipper Kake saw were just more interior designers.  Thanks GritCity!

Breakfast with Bobble Tiki

THE DAILY WORD
Learn it, use it, spell it

Hypnagogic \hip-nuh-GOJ-ik; -GOH-jik\, adjective:

Of, pertaining to, or occurring in the state of drowsiness preceding sleep.

USAGE EXAMPLE: Typically, Bobble Tiki’s hypnagogic adventures are filled with top heavy women, bottom heavy drinks, ‘80s heavy mixes, and unrealistically heavy bags of money. Sometimes, however, in his moments just before sleep, Bobble Tiki’s hypnagogic hallucinations are of kitty cats doing the electric slide, while giant mice play poker and sip Jim Beam.


Breakfastatbobbletikis THE MORNING NEWS

BRITAIN: Holy cow!

SONICS: End blame-game.

TOILETS: No more tots with a tinkle.

REUNION: Van Halen is hot for more money.


HUSTLER OF CULTURE
You can stand atop the mountain and scream your naked desires to the universe or shed that synapse epilepsy and hug the South Sound today with your fellow man:

MUSIC: In a move of brilliant capitalism that’s sure to induce a number of hangovers and possibly even end a marriage or two, Maggie O’Toole’s in Lakewood is offering half off military tabs on Tuesdays â€" for their “Loud and Local” shows. Loud and local is, in essence, exactly what it sounds like with the club promising to “rock your face off” with three local bands. Though Bobble Tiki isn’t sure who’s playing tonight, anytime a bar offers half off an entire tab, Bobble Tiki feels obligated to support it. If Bobble Tiki was military, he’d have his Tuesdays planned for the rest of the year, and there’d be a terrorist somewhere who could sleep a little easier.

If you’re in Olympia, Tacoma’s the Elephants play Le Voyeur tonight, and tomorrow the Old Haunts will pack themselves into Olympia's all-ages club Manium. By the way, if Bobble Tiki wasn’t already in a long term, serious relationship â€" he’d be hella trying to hook up with Le Voyeur on MySpace. Bobble Tiki thinks he’s in love. 

MORE MUSIC: What's on tonight.

THE ARTS: Tacoma Concert Band outdoors.

THE DRINK: Kirin beer in Lakewood.


As always, Bobble Tiki doesn't care what you do today because he doesn't even know you.  And unless you check out the Weekly Volcano's Web site, Bobble Tiki doesn't want to me you.  Besides, it's time to blow this joint because it's so obvious you are becoming further and further removed from all that is genuine and real and visceral and virtuous and Bobble Tiki doesn't play that with his morning bowl of Quisp.

OK, Bobble Tiki apologizes.  Please be his friend here.

Breakfast with Bobble Tiki runs Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  Deal with it.
