View Full Version : Love my UU hoodie

I was wearing my favorite UU brown hoodie the other night to an after work happy hour and one of my co-workers (his name is Mr. B) asked if I play ukulele. Well, I thought everyone at work knew that I'm into the ukulele, but I guess I missed a few. So, I told him about ukuleleunderground.com and then he started talking about how he has a recording of a friend of his, Jason (mumble some lastname beginning with the letter M...), playing the ukulele and how nice it sounds and how the ukulele is getting real popular. Then, he started talking more about his friend and how they met in San Diego after his friend got off stage, etc.. hm... wait a minute...

Me: "Who's your friend again?"
Mr. B: "Jason M-mumble" (can't hear due to the noise in the restaurant)
Me: "Jason who?"
Mr. B: Jason Mraz!

Oh, *that* Jason!

So, Mr. B, who just recently had a heart attack, told me some really nice stores about how Jason sent him flowers and how his manager called him to see if he was ok and some other stories which unfortunately I had too many beers (ok, just one is too many for me) to recall. But, Jason sounds like a really nice guy.

So, Jason, if you happen to be reading this, Mr. B says "Hi" and thanks you so much for the flowers. Mr. B survived and is back to work alive and kicking!

And if it wasn't for my UU hoodie, this whole conversation wouldn't have taken place. I just had to share this with someone. Thanks for listening!

I know I've said it at least once, but man, I gotta get something with "ukulele underground" on it.

I love my UU hoodie in heather gray! I don't remember seeing brown when I bought mine (though I bought the UU tshirt in brown). Is the hoodie a dark brown or a light brown? I might have to get one in brown...

Wish i could, but I could barely buy my case for 15 bucks.

On that door you open when you put gas in? How big is it...?(I don't know what it's called hehe. I'll have to wait 6 more years to drive....sooo...)

Just put it somewhere people will see it haha

lol driving a car in New York. Funny.

Insurance for me would be about 5-6k a year. I dont drive. I could put it up somewhere on my hockey equipment, but I pride myself in keeping my hockey stuff new and shiny looking, so thats out. My drums will not dear stickers, when you have a 10k$ custom set, you dont want to sticker it, I also wont put stickers on any of my other instruments.

I dunno, It may sit in my room un-stuck for a while :P

(I may try my hand at making a case however, Ive been wanting to make a rectangle hard case out of wood.)

Just Started back to College after 20 years... Hoping the stickers may start a conversation or two.

Is it? O.o
As far as I know, tons of people are driving in New York :D
The farthest I've traveled is from Honolulu to Kaumakani, so......yeah.

I wouldn't use wood. Besides, those hard cases are basically some sort of cardboard covered in vinyl (with the fuzzy orange stuff in it :D) They aren't that hard, and you can totally cover the whole darn thing in stickers. I seen some that aren't even distinguishably black because there are so many stickers.

Nuh, what I want to do is make a box out of wood, stain it, bind the edges in metal. For the inside, Ive got high density foam (the hard stuff) make a form, and upholster some purple or red velvet around it for the lining. Get a few hinges and a handle and Im pretty much done. My dad owns an upholstery shop, so the upholstery part is easy (the inner). What I do need is to get out to my local lumberyard and score me either some Oak or Maple.

You don't really wanna build a box out of oak, you would have a hard time carrying it... That box would be way heavier than your Uke and that's never good. I would always try to go for a stable but lightweight case

Don't worry, your time will come. We all saved up to be able to dress up cool. I was lucky to have a cousin who is in finances, he set me up with this great savings plan and I was able to buy a T-shirt within 11 months!

I had a conversation with myself yesterday, and came to the conclusion that we need WWDD (What Would Deach Do?) and WWAD (What Would Aldrine Do?) bracelets.
