Tuners, Cell Phones and D-Bags

I dont want to take the "Bitches" part of UCB too far, but there is something that has been bothering me for some time, and I need to get it off of my chest. It is the issue of leaving your tuner clamped onto the head of your uke while you are playing. I am all for keeping your uke in tune, and there are those who should tune more often than they do (Im not naming names here), but if your uke is tuned, and especially if you are going video tape your song for public showing, TAKE YOUR DAMNED TUNER OFF AND SET IT DOWN SOMEWHERE! (you can even leave it conspicuously in the shot if it means that much to you) But if you leave it on the uke it appears that you were in the middle of tuning your instrument and spontaneously broke into song. Oh, and look, the camera just happened to be recording to capture the whole thing! How convenient!

It reminds me of those D-bags who think they are so important that they have one of those little phones permanently attached to the side of their head. You know the ones. "Look at me, I get so many phone calls, the world would end if I couldn't be contacted immediately to save it".

I realize that the two have absolutely nothing to do with each other, they just both really bother me. Do me a favor, tune your uke and put the tuner away. And then take that little phone and shove it up your pretentious @$$. :)

Mmm I agree with Russ. That made me feel all warm inside.

Reminds me of the tough gangster kids that leave the tag on their hats. I hate that too.

I'm gonna leave my tuner on from now on just to piss you off.

Just because no one calls you doesn't mean you have to hate on people. Hate just for hate's sake.
