Site Updates: Friday Links

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that the site has been updated. Two big differences: UkeToob is now properly integrated with the rest of the site and the site should now be more usable on your phone. If you come across anything acting funky, please do let me know.

Along with that, I’ve started using a new service for email subscriptions. Feedburner, which I’ve been using so far, seems to be slowly dying and the new one looks much better and is more reliable. So if you want the new one, sign up in the sidebar and unsubscribe from the old one (click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of the old, ugly emails).

Will Grove White of the UOGB does Gangnam Style ukulele style.

Gibson sues SpongeBob SquarePants over flying V ukuleles.

New Releases:
- Kelli Rae Powell has just released a live record, if you haven’t heard her stuff before it’s the perfect jumping off point. Listen and buy on her website.
- Covers EP from Allo Darlin’.
- Debut album from Da Ukulele Boyz.

Pictures:
- Joe Strummer with uke (one I haven’t seen before).
- Aero Uke ad.

Videos:
- Nicholas Abersold’s ukulele strumming machine.
- Take Elvis to the fair (via Ukulele Brasil).
- Ukulele on Bunheads.

If I go to prison can I bring my ukulele?

    Great picture of Joe Strummer that I haven’t seen either. Are there videos or sounds of Joe playing the uke? I’ve never heard him play.

    Well, George Formby has a banjo uke in his cell in the 1938 film “I See Ice,” Al. Sings “Mother, What’ll I Do Now?”.

    You can watch jailbird George sing & strum in a video of the tune uploaded just a couple days ago on the ‘George Formby’ YT channel.

    Captain: Not that I’ve seen. Would love to.

    Ron: I’m not going to speculate on why he was in prison.
