On Popularity

The rise in popularity of certain things are not always a bad thing to me. I'm speaking just for myself when I say that I watch American Idol just as much as I did in the first season. Is American Idol popular? Yes. Is it cool and hip to watch American Idol? No. Am I a turd because I watch it? Probably (a fully entertained turd I might add). The Coyote once tried to kick me in the nards because of my love for American Idol but luckily I was wearing a cup that day. He did however successfully leave coyote scat in my duffel bag. Grrrross.

Anyway, with all this talk about popularity, boredom, keepin' it real, scat, let's all take a moment to remember what is really important about the ukulele and the ukulele community: Strumming patterns. Chunk each day as if it were your last. Chunkity chunk chunk.


Lastly:
Has anybody else been enjoying the fireworks on the forums lately? They nearly burned off my eyebrows but they were damn fantastic. The whole shit storm that went down seems to have sparked some pretty good conversations on the matter. As for the people that made it personal and scolded UCB for having an opinion, follow these three steps:

1. drink the kool-aid
2. look in the mirror and wave "hello" to the lemming
3. jump off a cliff

I remember when AC-DC came out (not the invention of electricity itself) no, I'm talking about the band (which wasnt too long after the invention of electricty). I knew a guy that loved AC-DC. He proclaimed AC-DC "the best band that ever lived". But regardless of what you think about their place in rock history, the guy I am refering to was a tool. I hated that guy...and because of that, I hated AC-DC. I still do. Everytime I'm in some shit-hole bar, and I see some skank singing along while "You Shook Me", or "Back in Black" plays on the stereo. I want to vomit...or at least smash my bottle of Rolling Rock over her bleached-blond-white-trash head. I freely admit that AC-DC never had a chance with me. They may be good, hell, they may be great...but because of that d-bag. I hated them. Maybe that makes me immature. Or maybe that means I'm missing out. But you know what? I HATE AC-DC (and Journey, and Foreigner)....and I'm ok with it.

I'm with Booze. I also hate almost every band with geography in its name. (Boston, Kansas, Europe, Asia, Chicago, etc.)

You know what I hate? Oyster casserole. Also, truth be told, I don't like waking up in the morning. Just thought everybody would like to know. :{)

I like AC/DC. But I'm a tool.
