Did y’all know imma stubborn mule? Hopefully that’s not hereditary but looking at my kinfolk, the odds seem high.
Also I have no idea why I’m talkin’ like I just come back from a family reunion in rural Appalachia. Oh well, hit don’t make no never you mind. It’s probably just the lack of sleep.
So yes, I’m stubborn. Like say, for example, my ultimate bloggy, vloggy, girl crush requests a uke video. And I get all, “I’m going to make her the best uke video in the history of all uke videos and then maybe she won’t notice if I sniff her hair and steal her pen as a memento of our glorious time together when she finally shows up to one of those BlogHer things.”
But it turns out her song is HARD, y’all. With, like, non-repetitive lyrics. And a complicated strum pattern. And lots of harmonies. And…generally…HARD.
So I go all, “I’ll just do one of those multi-window video things that all the cool vloggers do and it’ll solve all my problems AND make for the most kick-ass ukulele video since the invention of ukuleles and videos and space unicorns.”
But then I find out that I have to do it on the mac, so I need some sort of converter for my files. Then it turns out I can’t do it on my mac, so I have to convert them back. And then no – no, really – it has to be on the mac but I have to download some new software and then do some weird import/export dance that makes me want to stab my eyes out and crashes the whole machine every 3 minutes and also there’s really no way to make the clips line up without just resolving myself to completely and utterly losing my mind.
And then, what feels like five years later, I have a finished video. And it is woefully unexciting. But because I’m stubborn and (yet again) spent all my time trying to figure out this effing program instead of…say…practicing my ukulele, I’m posting this shit anyway.
So Steamy, please remember it’s the thought that counts. And as a compromise, I promise not to steal your pen. (I’m still totally sniffing those golden locks of yours, though.)
Now you can cleanse your auditory and visual senses with a real video – Muppet style! (Thanks for not letting me miss that, Abigail!)
It’s not quite MSBT, so you guys just go ahead and keep on drinking without me. *sigh*
As if three Elly’s wasn’t cool enough, the smoking Kazoo solo near the end put it over the top.
That sounds like a new euphemism – smoking a kazoo.
You are ridiculously awesome.
Best Uke video EVER! HMFBT!!!!!
Um, this is amazeballs. And my dog really likes it when you whistle. She comes and sits next to the couch. The bitch (and I mean that in the properest sense of the word) doesn’t even come when I call her.
Properest is totally a word.
I believe you used properest properly. Gold stars.
This is truly magical.
That was great. There aren’t words to say how great it was. That just means there aren’t words, not that it isn’t the greatest, because it is.
You’re sleeping as well as I am, aren’t you?
Absolutely.Awesome! When does the CD drop?! 🙂
The only thing dropping around here these days is this baby’s head. Woof.
You astonish me, Madam.
Astonish/terrify. Those are pretty much synonymous. 🙂
Not once, not twice, but THREE times a lady. Totally rad. Can you fit three Mildred’s in the next one?
Don’t go putting ideas in her tiny, fuzzy head.
OMG. We could do a duet with that fancy program of yours. A. DUET. Think about it.
I must second this motion before I attempt another comment at the bottom of the page. My hand is RAISED!
Aww hell. It’s on. Especially if I can ever find a way to make the two videos sync up. Now what song?
Well… maybe I should send one to you and you can doctor it up with your magical talent and beauty.
But what Song?
Cuanto la gusta? Dirty old Town? Dirty old town needs a kazoo solo… and I did just get three new accordions. Three. Accordions. *serious stare*
I don’t think I know it, but I’ll try anything that involves an accordion. DBS has some fascinating suggestions, too.
Well I suggested Dirty Old Town because it’s a sloppy drunk Pogues song and therefore doesn’t need excellent editing.
Win. Full of the win. I shall wait giddily for your video. Or something.
three Elly’s?? i think my heart just exploded.
Yes. You and Chelle. A DUET!
U Got the Look?
The Lady is a Tramp?
Sorry, first two ideas.
“Find my pretty asian woman today”?!?!
I hope you’re getting a good percentage for that.
ah, I see. It’s contextual because I’m viewing you from Israel. Interesting.
Asian women are a big thing in Israel?
Twould appear so. At least when I’m posting on your site.
In my hasty excitement I read the comments before watching the video and was mislead, thinking you would be performing Lionel Ritchie’s “Once, Twice, Three Times A Lady” . Prepared
To offer you all kinds of cautionary tales of why you could end up double pregnant again in a minute flat when this song is playing cause nothing greases those sex wheels like the smooth stylings of the master.
Turns out I was GROSSLY misinformed and that it’s you in triplicate (like government forms only more adorable) singing heartwarming things about sunshine and goodness.
Coincidentally, I AM easy like Sunday morning. Probably even easier. I mean, I AM knocked the fuck up. If that doesn’t say easy, I dunno what does.
That, my dear, is one HELL of a crush! Excellent uking!
Totally worth giving my hiding space way to the lawn guys!
Multiple Ellys are multiple times the fun fun fun. Love it!
Absolutely ace. Loved this.
Of course, you may regret acceding to Steamy’s demands, because she will take further advantage and everyone knows she is a harsh task-mistress.
