and if ya got more time to kill, here is '2001: a space odyssey' fully explained, in flash animation.

Watching that is yet another reason Kurt Cobain should have been brave enough to stay alive. Life sucks sometimes...sure...but sometimes a bunch of guys with Ukuleles will play your song.

it has the whole w'room in stitches! i swear it's the 1st time i can understand most of the lyrics. love the bit in the beginning when jools sez george harrison would love these guys. would love to see a complete show of this shit, looks very cool.

yeah that was pretty damn cool.

there's this local band in denver that rocks (and i mean ROCKS) the electric ukulele. i forget their name, but i'll track it down for you. i saw them recently and i think they have a website... kinda nerd rock, but totally fun!

I notice the line up for a summer Festival here next month is as follows:
Billy Idol, The Stranglers, Sparks, Stereo MCs, The Waterboys .. and er .. The Ukelele Orchestra Of Great Britain!

Something for all - that's how life should be!
