Friday Links: April Fools, Adam Green

Ukulele Underground did their best lesson ever this week: a masterclass on how to pull an April Fool. It’s just on the outskirts of believable (there really isn’t any level of stupidity beyond the record industry) and the put in a huge amount of work – replacing all the videos changing every mention of Aldrine to A.G., blurring his videos and bleeping his name – so much that it makes you wonder consider if anyone would go to that much trouble for an April Fools gag.

Who knew so much work went into making ukulele strings? (And I’m totally crushing on Mrs Aquila).
