View Full Version : The Brotherhood of the Travelling Ukulele

ok guys so this is how this is going to work. i have this ukulele. its a beater. but it works. i used to bring it to work to practice. so it does its job. doesnt do a great job. but like i said, it works. :D

so i am going to choose from the many people on this forum. probably about 10, maybe 15. the people i choose are up to my discretion because i would hate for the uke to be lost in the process (more on this later). so for the most part, the people that the uke will go to are the people whom i personally feel i can trust with this task.

so what is the task?

after i have chosen the individuals i will post up their UU screen names on this thread. this will give them the opportunity to opt out of this if they cannot participate. no pressure.

once i have confirmed the participants, i will set up the order of who gets the uke first. of course, thats me. i will take video of me signing the uke and playing it, and post it on youtube.

i will then request the mailing address of the individual after me... and only that individual. this will help avoid having a bunch of people's addresses that are known on the internet from floating around to who-knows-where.

the next individual will then take video of signing and playing. oh and feel free to say some sort of message or whatever you feel like. post that video on youtube as a video response to my original video post. tag the video with "brotherhood of the travelling ukulele" and (if i may have permission to do so from UU) "ukulele underground". then you will request the mailing address of the next person, only, and mail it to them for them to repeat the process.

eventually the uke will come back to me. by that time i will have found some way to set up a contest to see who actually gets to have the ukulele in the end.

the contest will be open to everyone. so im not quite deaching this particular uke. but imagine having an ukulele signed by some of the most influential members of this forum and youtube ukulele icons!

i will be putting the names of prospective participants together shortly. so stay tuned!


OK HERE ARE THE NAMES:
1. NukeDOC - CONFIRMED while with me, i will sign the uke. and i will get my brother BUGOY CONFIRMED to sign it too. i would get the whole band in on it, but there wouldnt be any room left for anyone else! hahaha

2. Aldrine - while its with you, could you please get rayan and DanyoCummings to sign it as well? oh yeah TitoBoy too!

3. Dominator - CONFIRMED

4. Fred_Miu - CONFIRMED

5. Davoomac - CONFIRMED if you and EleoCasil CONFIRMED are down for this, i would love to have you guys as part of it.

6. tsud123 - CONFIRMED and hopefully chronosxd and ndtitanlady as well!

6. Ukulele_Junkie - CONFIRMED if you dont mind getting jello CONFIRMED to sign it too, that would be cool since im sure you guys are together enough.

7. Seeso - CONFIRMED

8. Deach - CONFIRMED can't keep this one away from you bruddah. you were the inspiration behind all this "deaching" hahaha. do you have a youtube account? well if you dont, then this would be a great opportunity to actually see the person behind all this giving.

9. GX9901 - CONFIRMED George, cant forget you dude. your reviews have really inspired and guided a lot of people in their quest to find the right ukulele for themselves. plus, we've dealt with mail before so i know i can count on you to get the uke back to me once you're done with it.

to the rest of the great people here in the Underground, if i didnt include you PLEASE dont take offense to it. i wanted 15 people tops, and i think i even went over that. if i could i would want to get everyone. hell, i would have loved to take the uke to the jam session here in SD and have everyone sign it. but there just isnt room. sorry.

if any of the people i mentioned cannot commit to this please let me know either in this thread or through PM. also, i realize the costs of shipping, so i tried to group people up as much as possible in hopes that everyone could chip in toward the next destination.

Very cool idea. Can't wait to see this one get going.

Perhaps a google map could even be set up to track the Uke's progress from city to city?

NukeDOC
04-30-2008, 08:04 AM
ok guys, the list is out. check out the original post. looks like there are 18 names on there. so if a few have to back out, its still all good.

deach
04-30-2008, 09:22 AM
Cool idea. Question about the list - will the ukulele be sent in that order? That would be cool because I'd get to play a ukulele that was played by a lot of my uke heroes!

yeah thats the order it will be going in. so you would want to give your mailing addy to seeso, and request an addy from gx9901.

all who are involved with this, please take note. thanks.

and here is the first video response by bugoy... and me:

No sweat. Was wondering because I will be heading to Ohio to see my mom in about 3 weeks or so and was trying to gauge whether I would endup with it before or after. I'm sure it will most likely be after.

06-15-2008, 12:22 PM
this is awesome...

but i think that we need a sisterhood of the traveling ukulele as well.
even though females playing the uke isn't quite as common, there are still quite a few great female ukers out there.


hmm?
whaddya say.

NukeDOC
06-15-2008, 09:29 PM
yes im a slow ass. i still have the ukes sitting in my truck. a lot been going on lately. on top of managing the band and booking shows, i still have my regular day job, my kids, and starting a business. so please bear with me. im actually wondering if i should just hold on to them until aldrine and rayan come down so they can sign it while theyre here.

Doesn't jello play? And even though she's not here on the forum, there's the awesome Ms Heather Lev. Formerly of NY and now in Seattle.

Also in Seattle is Sunga Rose (of Miss Rose and her Rhythm Percolators).

Last, but certainly not least, is the totally yummy Amanda Palmer (of the Dresden Dolls).

I'm sure I'm missing more too.

and hey, maybe we could raffle it off for donations for Ukes4Kids?

im going to be apologizing for this for a while. but come july 22nd, hopefully i can make some amends. with the entourage from hawaii here, and possibly dustin, philip, and natalie ill be able to knock out a whole bunch of sigs and have video of it all. then i just gotta worry about getting them to the other peeps.

You mean to tell me that I just spent a half an hour reading through ten pages of posts and watching two nearly six minute videos about a traveling ukulele....and the things still haven't budged?

Part of the coolness of this was that the ukes were supposed to travel, and now the Hawaiian contingent have come to them!

This is indeed a great idea, if it ever gets off the ground. Mail those bad boys! The Post Office needs the revenue! :D

sorry guys. i dont know how many times im going to have to appologize. but in my defense, most of my posting here is during work hours. when i have time to actually go on the net. after that, if its not practicing the music for the band, teaching, or just QT with the family then im asleep.

the studio i teach guitar at hates paying me with checks. they usually just give me cash. because ill have it stuck in my wallet for 2 months before i actually bring the thing to the bank.

but their existance is verified. they will go out. it will happen.

Dominator has them right now. He's making a video as we speak.

I don't know who gets them next, but I'm going to Nashville, Indiana on August 27-29 for the Luau. I can have the players there sign them. I'm not too sure who's going to be there, but I'm sure Jason Arimoto will be there at least. I think Dustin and Monique are going too. Of course, we'll get hoosierhiver in on it too.

So it doesn't have to come to me next, but if it came to me after whoever's next, that might be cool.

just in case, here is the address to the initial video which shows all the video responses to it so you can check them out and keep track of whats going on.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K8r2dOBSeE

i have also updated the info in the sidebar to include the names (mostly) of the people who have signed the ukulele so far. what an incredible list already.

i have also decided on how im going to let these babies go...

in the ukulele marketplace:
there will be an auction for all three ukulele (or however many we end up with at the end of this project, thanks to dominator for setting that trend hehe). the auction will continue for 1 month from the day that i start it. payment will be recieved via my personal paypal. after receipt, and only after, i will have the ukulele mailed out to the winner. i will post a video on it on youtube, and would appreciate others involved to post videos to it as well to get more traffic on it, as the auction will only be open to REGISTERED members of Ukulele Underground. it will be a totally public auction so your bid will be visible by all. the money received will be donated to the ukulele charity of DEACH's choice.

for out of country bidders: please keep in mind that the money to ship the ukulele to you, if you win, will come out of the bidding price. so unless the bid is in the hundreds (or thousands) of dollars at the time of auction close, i might need to ask you to pay for the shipping also, on top of the bid for the ukulele.

all these rules and any others i can think of by then will be posted on the auction in the ukulele marketplace.

Was thinking exactly the same thing. To ship just 1 uke its already around 30-40 bucks. Spreading them out everywhere might be a good solution to spread the cost of shipping.

So I just checked the updated list on NukeDOC's video. I see that Jason Arimoto has not signed yet.

If it's cool with you Fred, how about shipping at least the Oscar Schmidt over to me after you sign it? I can have Jason sign it at the Luau. I'm pretty sure Monique (xticklesmilex) and Dustin will be there. Maybe Wade Johnston, too.

I'll track down HoosierHiver, too.

better yet, if you have the ukulele and you see that its already full, just PM and send it back to me. that way the full ukulele arent floating around and sucking up shipping costs. ill hold on to them (like thats a problem for me, right deach?) till they all get signed up (however many we end up with) and then we can start the auction.

ummm sisterhood? how about we hold hands on this one and combine the ukes that you have put up so they can continue on with more autographs?

Fred has the two original ukuleles. I have the OS that Dominator donated. Fred came to Chicago and we made the video. I've been waiting on editing that video until the CG project was complete. Now that it's done, I'll edit the video and upload it ASAP.

I'm taking the OS with me to either Indiana (if I go), and/or Milwaukee, to get more ukers to sign it. After that, I'll make a decision as to who gets it next. I think the next recipient will depend on who signs it in Indiana/Milwaukee.

I don't know what Fred's doing with the two original ukuleles. He's in Huntington Beach right now. He slept over at dominicfoundthemooon's place last night.

ill set them aside in a safe place where i can let the other ukulele join them eventually so that i can PROMPTLY (i hope) send them out to their new rightful owner.

cool... i was thinking...

i am going to two UKULELE shows... Soon..

SweetAfton23 17,000 Subs
Danyelle Ate the Sandwich 13,000 Subs

Both cool people, and quite a bit of fun! After I send the two ukes on there way with AG to NukeDoc I could pick up a cheap uke to have them sign (maye write a little note on) and then send those down also to add to the mix..

I am not sure if I have this right.. but I think that we were going to auction the ukes off and give the money to a good cause?

It would be cool to make a highlights video that everyone can post on there youtube that links to the auction..

I would think that if the sisterhood uke gets in on this.. we would have 5 filled up ukes.. and that might do a lot of good! who knows.. just thoughts I was having..

sorry ive been MIA. just been real busy lately and its going to get even busier.

update:
i have the original two ukulele in my possession with some schwagg to go weed'um. it is my understanding that there is one or two more that are floating around still. i dont remember who had them last or if the intention was to add them to the collection. but once we figure this out, i will put the ukulele up for auction.

here's what i was thinking...

it will not be a silent auction. everyone will be able to see what you are bidding. this will discourage any riff raff from signing on for the sole purpose of bidding "one million dowlahs!!!" i will start a thread with the ukulele, including pics and schwagg to go with. tell others to sign on to UU to be able to bid on the ukulele.

there will be a time frame to bid. at the deadline, the highest bidder will be contacted by me and have 48 hrs to respond with payment through PAYPAL. im sorry folks, but thats the only way i can keep things legit and secure. i will wait 10 days to ship, just in case the paypal payment is disputed (scammers). the funds will then be transferred to the paypal account of whomever can deliver the funds to the appropriate ukulele related charity... minus any fees that i may have to pay for using paypal for the money transfers (IOW im broke haha).

so right now im just waiting to see if i should wait for those other ukulele, or if im just gonna go ahead and put the ones i currently possess up for auction.

i may even think about setting up separate auctions for each individual ukulele.

The ukulele is in Minneapolis, awaiting pickup by George, aka GX9901. I will remind him of it.

George never picked it up. Sukie grabbed it the other day and will bring it to Milwaukee. That's one. I don't know what happened to the other one. Last I heard it was with NukeDoc in San Diego.
