Friday Links: Ukes in Space and Video Games

– Continuing in the tradition of Neil Armstrong, SpaceX launched a Martin ukulele into space along with a load of other junk.
– Jake Shimabukuro has announced a new album with a cavalcade of stars including Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett and Bette Midler.
– The new Life is Strange game is out and ukulelist mxmtoon is the singing voice of the lead character and has a new EP of songs from the game out. I’ve done some LiS tabs and chords in the past and will probably do more once I play this game.
– And, if you’re sick of playing ukulele irl, you can play one in Awaceb’s upcoming game Tchia.
LP tells Guitar World that the ukulele doesn’t have to be cutesy.
