View Full Version : Ukulele Hoarder and Best Story Contest to celebrate my 1 year ukulele anniversary!

08-22-2009, 06:11 PM
So I'm running a contest for this one to celebrate my 1 year anniversary of ukulele playing!

You need to make a video response to this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3NO84WMJpM)


1. Talk about how you got started with the ukulele.
2. Talk about the different ukes you have had over the years, how you got them, if they still have them, and any good stories you have about them. Oh yeah, if the uke's have name's tell us that too.
3. Show the ukes you have and give a little sound sample of them.
4. At the beginning of your video you must state your name (first name or youtube name is fine) and that you are an ukulele hoarder.
5. You can submit no more than 2 videos. I can't imagine anyone having so many ukulele's that they need more than 20 minutes, but who knows? I've met many a crazy cat lady or two in my day.
6. The last day to submit an entry will be December 1st, 2009 and the winner's will be announced within 7 days of that date.
There are going to be two awards:

1. Whoever does the above things and shows the most ukulele's that they own in their video will get a very fancy certificate for being "King hoarder of ukulele's!" and a shirt from the ukulele academy in Wilmington, N.C.
You can pick which one you want and whatever size he has in stock:


2. Whoever does the above and has the best stories (i'll be the judge) will get a "Best Uke-storyteller" certificate and a shirt from the ukulele academy in Wilmington, N.C.
You can pick which one you want and whatever size he has in stock:


Thanks to everybody that posts ukulele videos that I can watch on youtube so I have something to do other than playing the ukulele!

Here are the submissions:

Great idea for a contest. I only have 5 ukes so I'll have to come up with a good story. If the story is told in the house of one of the cat ladies, I bet that will add extra points...

if you can hold your video in a cat hoarder's house, you definitely get extra credit. also, if she can name all the cats and tell us how she got started cat hoarding there will also be extra credit!

and I couldn't be happier. One of my favorite player's Shigeto Takahashi submitted a response the funny stories, wonderful playing, and fantastic ukulele's. He is an awesome character who loves to bring his ukulele with him when he goes to the forest or climbs mountains. I got his new c.d. "Roots Trip" a few months ago and it is fantastic. It is my favorite uke c.d. to date and his technique is amazing! I posted the link on the first message of this thread.

Does it have to be a real story, or can it be made up and absurd?

It can be whatever you think it should be. If it makes me giggle it can't be bad.

I love you sig!

If anyone else would like to get in on this contest, there are only about 2 weeks left to do so.

I only have 2 entries, which will give your entry good odds at winning 1 of the 2 awards.

Come on ukulele peeps, show me those ukuleles!
