Okay, Ukeleles. Ukeleles are, dare I say it, more awesome than guitars (even flying V guitars. It’s true). We had a wee ukelele kicking around the house when I was growing up, and for the longest time I actually thought it was a tiny guitar made for really little people. Seriously- like for teeny foot tall people or something (Look, there was this book, about a kid who found a teeny tiny city and then some mysterious teeny people and there was something about a white snake, and he lost part of his little finger, and the people all disappeared, and he woke up back at school thinking it was all a dream, but his finger was still missing). The point is, eventually, somehow, I discovered the Ukeleles are not mini guitars made for foot high people, and that there isn’t actually a bunch of foot high people running around in need of guitars anyways. It was about that time that I also discovered that ukeleles are, in fact, totally awesome.
What else is totally awesome? This song, by Zoe, featuring a ukelele and a robot:
and also, this one too, which also features moustaches:
