OK, how about an alternative viewpoint.
Any dork can pitch a tent. They're built that way, dumbproof. Insert poles here, stake there, the shape is self-actuating.
The tarp, on the other hand, now that is art.
Some folks can't pitch a tarp for the life of them. It sags here, it droops there, the angle of a guyline is messed up, you know the deal. Most of the time it's because people are too fast to pay attention to the pitch. Even when they arrive in camp at 4 pm and have all the time in the world.
Pitching a tarp should not be dependent upon speed records. Because like the child that spends 3 hours creating a Crayola masterpiece worthy of the fridge, the ultralight backpacker who can create a tarp worth photographing, and located in a pitch worth remembering, now - that's beauty!
So, take your time. You're not impressing your friends so much as creating art within the landscape.
Unless it's raining really hard and you're freezing and you don't care and no one is around to take photos...then just nail the corners to the ground, crawl underneath it, and worry about all this aesthetic BS later.
