But still, making a scene at the gate was very tool-like indeed
At the very least I would have had a little "debrief" with him. Not trying to armchair QB you but it royally irks me when one of our own doesn't know how to act professionally in public.

I guess it's relative.....as always. I'll just say that every time I want to throw my daughters iPod out the window I try and chill out, take a breath, and realize that I'm just getting older

Gentlemen,

I donít have the time to spare currently to convince or attempt to justify this song to the few that donít understand it. Itís not at stab at you personally but for those that ďdonít get itĒ you fall in the minority.
I will post the lyrics since a few find it ďdifficultĒ to understand the music or words recorded, ďU 87Ē for those that work in professional studios.

You must understand, UGL is comprised of several layers of work and music is about 8% of what we do.
This song was created for the regional industry and the pilots that serve it. Once you have the lyrics it should make a lot more sense to you.

Thanks for taking the time to read and listen. I donít expect to reach 100% and anytime you put yourself in the public you have to be prepared to take the good and the BAD.

Last but not least; MODS, I guess you have guidelines to decide what posts deserves to be merged into 4 year old threads? Obviously I would want this song to have its own thread but downgrading it into a 4 year old post? Like Chris Berman says, ďCome on MANNNNNNĒ!

Maybe once you actually get it you will reconsider making this a separate thread for ALL regional pilots to hear!

A Dollar Fifty (Solo) | D'Tyner

Title: A Dollar 50 Cents
Label: UGL LLC
Artist: Captain 1-800-Truck-Drivers

Lyrics by Bar:
Let me start off saying I love everybody/
From The Pilots Flight Attendants Drivers in the Lobby/
Man, this my career boy this aint a hobby/
I got my resume in, Iím trying to get to Hobby (Airport)/

Please, they sent another one thatís full of garbage/
Want theyíre pilots living like we commute in with the Amish/
Pull up to the airport with my horse and buggy/
Hop out like the driver but I aint no dummy/

Captain why you stressed out why you look like ish?/
Cause I just left Walmart, where I pitch my tent/
You think they pay me enough, so I can get some rent?/
They just sent me a raise, A Dollar 50 Cent/

Please, you got me out here cracking jokes/
If I tell these passengers theyíd have a stroke/
Damn Chip chill out boy Iím having fun/
Like we at the BOD passing out these crumbs/

I guess you forgot I got a family and a little one/
I guess you want me to treat him like the red headed son/
Nope, cause that donít match my Christian values/
And you can try to takes us down like the value, Jet
Calling all ExpressJet Pilots PLEASE/
Calling all my airline pilots PLEASE/
Calling all my mainline brethren PLEASE/
1.50 1.50 1.50 PLEASE/

Donít try to knock me/
I got a lawyer Thom Ross try to stop me/
In the ring Iím balboa Like Iím Rocky/
They wanna they wanna beam me like Iím Scotty, PLEASE

Like I said I'm not a fan of rap or country, but I can tell the rhythm is good and the lyrics are poetry in thier own right. Well played. It's obvious it took talent to string it all together. Don't worry about the haters here. They are just petty men yapping like little old dogs at the heels of passion. Didn't someone just post a Theodore Roosevelt quote about don't mind the little men that cry havoc when the true hero stumbles during his endeavors?

I've been doing this long enough that its just apart of the journey. However to the gentlemen who said he could come up with something similar with a few hundred dollars and an hour of his time? Get off the gas man...

Yes music is a passion but this song in particular was created for PILOTS! I mean can no one here relate to what was talked about?

It's a tough industry (Airlines not Music LoL) and I admit a majority of pilots are very conservative and just don't understand it, thats fair...

MODS; I've seen some questionable things in the past but I do have a question. Who decides what gets merged and why? As you will notice I didn't advertise my song on this forum it just ended up on it, which I knew it would without my help. So who decides these things?

If you think I need pilots to support UGL your delusional...

Again thanks to the guys who listen and have appreciation for what goes into something like this...

I can't say I'm a huge fan of rap, but I thought that was a killer cut. I just paypal'd the tune and downloaded to my in-flight playlist. Well done, sir. Takes cajones to put yourself out publicly like that. F the haters, you know they always gonna hate.

Hope I get to meet you one of these days. 1st round is on me.
