Yay! Check out these rad Ukulele-themed Desktops, created by Shelley Rickey. I'm all over these! If you swing by there and grab some, make sure and leave a comment, letting her know how much you appreciate it. I mean, c'mon, she made them for free. Give the love back, Uke community!
So, somehow I wandered into this video clip and instantly had my mind blown. Who is this guy? Does anyone have more information?! The arrangement is freaking beautiful!
You remember the Large Hadron Collider, right? Sure, you do, 17-mile-long tunnel near Geneva, Switzerland? Supposed to make particles accelerate and collide and possibly give us more information about the Big Bang, and whatnot? Or, maybe you remember it as the giant science thingy that when you turn it on, the world ends? In either case, Will Howells wrote this little ditty about it.
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".
While it's a proven fact that all ukulele players are exceptionally charming and attractive, this video proves what I've always known deep in my heart. We are also gifted with fantastic sense of humor. The intro portion of "The Good, the Bad, the Ugly" by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brittan is freaking hilarious! Then they go on to completely nail this Ennio Morricone masterpiece.
