At first I was all disappointed and wanted to kick your scrote. But then I watched it and became quite intrigued. Thanks, subby. I love good cinema.

It's shocking that that raft didn't buckle under the weight of their clanking balls.

brap: I feel like a bit of a tool but I'm actuallyexcited about this.  I read Kon Tiki as a kid and have always been a bit obsessed with this.

Talk about inserting oneself into their research.  I haven't seen this sort of dedication and self-sacrifice to prove one's theories since Buddy Love in The Nutty Professor.


Looks like I'm going to have to buy a book this weekend.

LonMead: I read the book, and enjoyed it a lot. If this comes out anywhere near where I am, I'll go see it.

Here it is on Vimeo.


These guys had big clankin' balls, that's for sure. (Useless piece of trivia: Their radiomen had learned their craft as clandestine operators with the Norwegian resistance during WWII - one of them was instrumental in supplying intelligence about the Tirpitz, the other was part of the raid on the Rjukan heavy water plant. Badasses.)

I met one of the directors Joachim Rønning at a screening recently, and I commented that it was amazing that I never even heard about Thor Heyerdahl or what he did when I grew up in Polynesia.

I felt the director was chastising me when he said "I'm pretty sure you SHOULD have known about him!" Since apparently he's a national hero in Norway and is "Bigger than Columbus". He also is apparently directly responsible for the spread of "Tiki Culture" and the preservation of Polynesian indigenous culture.

My bullshiat meter was going off like crazy during the conversation, but maybe it has something to do with a handsome white male telling me that the reason why my cultural identity still exists is because of his national hero and NOT from the efforts of the countless Polynesians who fought to preserve their own vanishing heritage from the onslaught of white colonials.

I plan on chatting with professors of Polynesian history and culture about my weird feelings on the film.

/The highlight of the evening was when the cast and crew walked on stage after the screening, some old lady said "What a fine looking group of men!"

I am not amused. Know this, submitter of links: To fool the son of Odin is to court war. With my mighty hammer, I shall have my revenge!
