I was talking to Mark when he pointed out TubaNews to me. An entire site dedicated to the Tuba. It's the Internet, so of course something like that exists. I hypothesized that given what I know about the Internet, and the normal mechanics of communities of passion, that there was probably a competing tuba site that we didn't know about, a competitor to TubaNews, one that came about because of some rift in the community. Maybe there was a disagreement about proper mouth-piece usage, or cleaning and polishing techniques. Regardless the differences were irreconcilable and led a faction to split off and start their own tuba site. You know it would happen. Anyway, I let my imagination get away from me and I envisioned both groups concentrated in NYC, antagonistic, flash-mobbing outside the apartments of the oppositions member's apartments in impromptu guerrilla tuba ensembles.
