Photos of ukes from the 2010 Ukulele Guild of Hawaii Exhibition with this one being the nuttiest.

I think I recognise this banner (Thanks to Tim).

Jim Beloff finds his bliss.

I don’t want anyone to get the impression I might respect women for their intelligence, energy and individuality, but I’m slightly flabbergasted that beauty contests are still going on. This is wrong in so many ways (comments are disabled but you can still express yourself via the medium of thumbs).

Molly Lewis interviewed on MusicLA (looks like her MySpace wish has already come true).

An interesting way to think about chord progressions from guitarkadia.

MP3s: Daytrotter session from Neutral Uke Hotel, Sophie Madeleine on Beatles Complete on Ukulele.

In Soviet Russia my fleas have dog.

Photos: Kochel guitars, Ukulele Ike, Groomsmen.

    Holy be-jeebus that lady is butchering that poor uke. I wouldn’t vote for her thats for sure.
    Cheeky chaps stealing your banner, surely they realise how popular your site is amongst the Uke community….

    Also, you gotta love Sophie as always.

    Takes a long time to vote down all those Miss America videos. Who knew there were so many states?
    Beatles Complete on Ukulele isn’t very good very often, despite being my two favourite things combined. Sophie of course makes an exception, but I wish they were all that standard.
    Neutral Milk Hotel <3333

    good to see that Ms Lewis has garnered the big flowing on YouTube.

    (wtf?! that’s a pro news station?)

    Miss Hawaii. I mean…I just..really? Ugh. There aren’t enough thumbs in this whole, wide world to express what I think about her little “number”…

    So much for intellectual property…

    J-Hob: Certainly are.

    Foinnse: It is a bit strange to steal something that recognisable. Maybe I should take it as a homage!

    Jimmy: I think I’ve made my position on Beatles uke covers fairly plain. I wasn’t too keen on Sophie’s either.

    Hobbit: That’s LA for you.

    miabee: Time for the human race to evolve more thumbs.

    emon: A please to feature you.

    Lindy Danny: I’m not too worried about it.

Got something to say?
