Rock Out With Your Ukelele Out


There used to be this blog I followed called “Stuff White People Like”.

One of said “stuff” was “irony”.

Ukeleles hadn’t made it to thelist yet, but I am sure it would make the cut now.

How is it that the tiny guitar made it to the top of the adorkable accessory list?

I think it has everything to diwith making creativity and music more accessible to the hordes of disenchanted white collar workers and middle-class poor entrepreneurs who chased their ambitions to economic exhaustion and are now having midlife crises but can’t afford a Statacaster, much less able to spare the energy to learn how to rock it out.

So, we (yes…as in the royal “we”) learn to embrace the irony of our great white hope and learn to strum the little guitar to Sabbath.

It is the way of the Gen X/Y early onset midlife crisis.

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.
