Italian and Spanish Blogs: Friday Links

Good to see some non-English speaking ukulele blogs cropping up. YOUkulele is and Italian language blog. And, Uke Hunt buddy, George Stone has started a Spanish ukulele blog which includes an interview with a handsome man. I don’t speak any German or know who the photos are but I enjoyed this video anyway.

If you’ve left your Christmas duties late, grab yourself some downloadable ukulele gift tags; make a papercraft ukulele and learn some 3 chord Christmas songs. Plus ukestuff has a good rundown of Christmas songbooks.

Jake Shimabukuro has a new job: selling car insurance. Oh yes.

100 years of Hawaiian music (thanks to @HermanVDC).

As much as it would undermine my hard-man image, I definitely want this coin purse.

I don’t condone theft but I can understand stealing a ukulele. But to steal ukuleles headed for tsunami victims?

I’ve seen some spellings in my time but this one takes the biskit (thanks to Karl).

If you The Mad Tea Party’s track on the podcast, they’re entering into the Christmas spirit and giving away another new one this year Effin Christmastime

    Thanks for the coin purse link, thank God I’m a girl! If you like the ukulele kitsch, you should take a look at these cuties on etsy:

    George: Let’s just agree that both those guys are handsome.

    Neil: You lost me.

    pepamahina: Cute! But I wouldn’t get my ears pierced for them.

    From the English term “ooh me Farmers!” Rhyming slang: Farmer Giles = Piles.

    Neil: Oh, I see. Apologies for being dim.

Got something to say?
