Dueling AWESOME. That's what it is.

Lookit me, I got a damned ukulele for a head!
Look, Readers, there is nothing wrong or painfully nerdy or socially awkward about trying desperately to learn Dueling Banjos on the ukulele.  A person needs to have goals in life.  Things that make you want to get out of bed in the morning when you're on a diet and can't get up and eat an ice cream pail full of froot loops and coffee with half of the cream carton dumped into it, you have to find things to busy your mind, okay?  And GUESS WHAT?  Practicing it in an acid washed,  American Apparel sweatshirt just makes it that much more.. um.. ethnic so just stop clamoring all over yourselves to judge me. 

I am nowhere near mastering it yet...  But look how awesome THIS guy is:



Pretty amazing, if not kind of scary seeming, right?  But that is beside the point, I mean how cool would I be at parties if I could just like, casually whip out my ukulele and blow everyone away with a two part hillbilly anthem?

Don't answer that, please.    Tut tut... shhhhhh... shhh you...  be silent.  SHoooOOsh.  Shh now. 

Neil seems pretty excited about the whole idea too,  because he posted this on facebook about it. 
Tsk, you spelled 'ukuleles' wrong, NEIL.  


SIX of Neil's facebook friends *like* this, Readers.  So there's that.   (PS.  I replaced their profile photos to maintain their privacy.)

Ummm... so Easter, eh?  It's gonna be wild.

I have a sore throat.  :(

The dude in the video is making sweet love to that ukulele.

how did you replace those pics? Awesome. I didn't even notice until you mentioned that you changed them. I just assumed you had the weirdest group of friends EVER.

I have a ukulele, PS.

Fairly certain that is everyone's dream. Keep at it, girlfriend.

Love your blog by the way, I don't quite remember how I came across it, but I did, and you never fail to make me laugh.

Sweet. Ukuleles are the ponies of guitars.

i think when you whip out a ukelale and play hillbilly music, it is no longer a party. it's a hoedown. possibly even a hootenany.

Next you need to learn it on the tuba.

Keep workin at it, if for no other reason than to stay away from your aforementioned breakfast choices :-)

Chelle said...

Elly- I didn't want to assume anything...

Mandy- Barn style. Which doesn't make it seem cooler...

Sophie- Thanks!

Cait- The carnival ponies.

manders- and that is what everyone strives for, right?

Libby- If only someone would send me a hand painted tuba.

Dr C- Meat is meat. amiright?

Never mind duelin ukuleles, I'm just really impressed that you know how to change the profile pics in that Facebook blurb! I need lessons in technology...

Hahahhaa I was watching the video and scanning through the FB pictures and thought "Wow, every single one of those people used really terrible ugly fake pictures. They must not want to remain private." Lol.
You really seriously need to figure this shiz out and then find someone else to do the other set. It would be amazing.
