New England Philharmonic member wants her $10,000 flute back.
skin flute joke here.
tweeting at the time. Fucking Twitter.
I got some black nylon line, made two velcro cuffs, secured the line to the cuffs, and attached one to the handle of my son's violin and the other to his wrist.
Voila! My then 5th grader no longer left his violin on the bus!
In fact, he doesn't seem to have left it on the bus in the three years since.
I've done the same for my briefcase when travelling distances that mean extreme jet lag.
I read it without reading the handle and I guessed it was you.
I have to admit, that post was almost a parody of Swrrly posts. Nothing against her, but using handicraft to attach a violin to your child's bicycle? There's going to be a Portlandia sketch based on that missive.
Still not as bad as JP, where this post would still need a dog pulled into the into the mix and the nylon replaced with a more organic and sustainable tether. Oh, and a crappy commune-based roots band playing in the background.
Um, not bicycle, school bus ... boy is attached to violin so it doesn't get left on the school bus.
For his bicycle, I fashioned custom straps for the rack out of Sugru, web belting, and velcro. I was concerned about the bad effect of crushing forces from bungie cords on the instrument.
Otherwise, I'm touched ... and not just in the head.
guess the UHub poster!:
"Hey Mayor, how's that flute ban working out for you?"
