Original ‘Ukulele Hero’ drawing to be auctioned

Ukulele Hero: The Warren Buffet Edition
Ukulele Hero: The Warren Buffet Edition

I'm not sure how I missed this the first time around, but apparently Warren Buffet is a Ukulele aficionado.   The original drawing, from the Omaha World-Herald, appeared after Buffet described why he loves the Ukulele.  That is to say, because it's "cheap, portable and useful for courting".


Bret, from Flight of the Conchords?!

Oh to live in New Zealand!  The beautiful countryside, the fat American LOTR fans that surely litter the aforementioned landscape these days, Flight of the Conchords and the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra.  Yup, and to put syrup on the whole deal, Bret McKenzie, from Flight of the Conchords, performs in the orchestra and co-founded it.  Listen to this,

"Classic songs by Prince, Johnny Cash, Kings of Leon and others will be heard when the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra rocks the Lake Wanaka Centre on Sunday and Monday nights." -- Otago Daily Times

I think I would literally kill for this.  Well, I guess I'll settle for the next best thing.  Playing "Leggy Blonde" on my ukulele and crying myself to sleep.
