Friday Links: Kate Miccuci on Scrubs

Kate Micucci is playing her ukulele on Scrubs – which is my new favourite ukulele news ever. She discusses her role as Ted’s ukulele sweetheart, Stephanie, here. Until you get a chance to watch it, you’ll have to content yourself Kate and Ted duetting on Screw You a PG version of Fuck You.

Tiki King has a some photos from NAMM including some new Fluke designs, some Les Paul-y type electric ukes from Stagg (with a strange choice of knob placement) and Ohana getting into the ‘oddly placed soundhole’ game.

The new Beirut double EP March of the Zapotech doesn’t have a great deal of ukulele on it (Quiet Color have an MP3 of the uke-heaviest track The Akala). Perhaps because Zach’s had his ukulele stolen.

New York Ukulele Festival is back on again under new management.

The Hull Ukulele Group starts up on 9th February. If you live in the area, sign up for their Facebook group.

More King Blues chords from sam_not_static on Uker Tabs.

Milk Milk Lemonade has an MP3 from The Half Sisters.

Is it ‘ukulele’? Is it ‘ukelele’? There’s only one way to sort this out. FIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!

Do you think playing the ukulele is gay? If anyone asks, tell them your ukulele belongs to your secret girlfriend.

    As an avid fan of failblog.org I can firmly assure you that the secret girlfriend thing is a fake.

    Really? Damn it all.

    Nice links to yahoo! answers. Is playing the ukulele gay? Apparently, gay now means “totally awesome, hilarious, and rockin’ ” .
    Additionally, I think the secret girlfriend is a fake entry, but still quite funny. In fact, I bet a ukulele song about a secret girlfriend (who really is a secret boyfriend) would be great. Maybe we can get Zoe or JuNu to make one for us.

    cbf: I couldn’t disagree more. I think it’s way funnier the NSFW way. It works against the cutesiness of the tune and the cutesiness of Kate. And it accentuates the dynamic of the old guy being coy and the little girl wanting to get fast and nasty.

    newbie: Do you go around telling kids Santa doesn’t exist? ;)

    Iain: Yeah, it’s fake. But still very funny.

    Andy: Nice idea. I shall pass it on to Zoe.

    “Oh no, he’s got a secret girlfriend who he’s sneaking in to fuck
    Oh no, he’s got a secret girlfriend, I hope he doesn’t knock her up
    Dear mama you’re so naive or you’re just ignoring the clues
    Someday soon your son’s gonna tell you – he’s into dudes”

    Zoe: What a poet you are. Did you get my last email? There were some attachment issues.

    Andy: Or recruit Jemaine from FotC.

Got something to say?
