    Thanks Mark! This is the best infection I’ve ever had!

    I approve of these posts, but why no love for the banjolele? If you’re going to go for cute girls with silly instruments, no point in stopping half way!

    @#7 I think the further you get from Hawaii, the more quaint and cute the ukulele seems. Luckily for most of you, the entire continental united states is far from Hawaii. I think I am underwhelmed by it in the same way that someone who lived in africa for a while was probably underwhelmed with Paul Simon when Graceland came out.

    For all of you that are lusting after ukuleles, the best commercial ukulele manufacturer in Maui when I lived there was They have decent starter ukes at affordable prices that sound great and don’t need to be retuned every 4 minutes. They make nice guitars too (although I think I prefer my collings to anything I ever played there).

    If you’ve played guitar, picking up the uke is about as tricky as picking up the bass guitar (ie, easy to at least fake- chords are simple, strings are floppy, and only 4 strings to manage).

    I can’t wait until Mark switches from his current ukelele fetish to bagpipes.

    does anyone do death metal uke?

    Mark’s had a uke fetish for almost as long as I’ve known him. But don’t worry too much, it’s an infectious fetish.

    Hey Mark,

    I’ve enjoyed your Ukulele videos for a long time now. I think you and Youtube has really started a new trend in Ukulele appreciation.
    I don’t know if you saw any video by sweetafton23 on Youtube or not. I particularly love her cover of Jonathan Coulton’s Tom Cruise Crazy and think you might enjoy it as well.
    Ukulele + Jonathan Coulton = Win.

    ukes and bagpipes go together

    Once again,

    Cute Girl + Uke = The New Steampunk!

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    She is really good!

    What a delightful meme you have going here Mark!

    I’m thinking it might just be time to get myself a Ukulele. Does anyone know if there are good quality kits available?

    I am getting an ukelele very soon. And soon will be posting, dedicated to you,

    You guys beat me to it – there’s an unhealthy obsession with the uke here. Maybe it’s a West Coast thing – being close to Hawaii than the non uke lovers on the East Coast.

    Folks have had success with this kit from Grizzly:

    Best to buy one, though.

    I’m beginning to get the impression that I should have bought a ukulele instead of a guitar last year – like I’m missing the next hot musical trend or something.

    Not that me missing any sort of trend, musical or not, would be anything new and noteworthy.

    this woman deserves BB find of the year –
    cutegirlUke+selfmadedecorativecakeUke+Nihonglish all together?! damn

  20. pinehead says:

    Cute uke, and the last bit with “YAY, CAKE UKELELE! OOWAAHH” make me laugh. :D

    The ukulele is a lie?

    I’ve gotta second Adam Stanhope’s sentiments above, (and those who posted after). I find myself dreaming of a ukelele-playing harem these days. We owe you, Mark.

  23. Adam Stanhope says:

    I love the “pretty girl playing ukulele” posts, Mark. I fall in love with every one of them. Imagine if my wife only knew, way back when, that the direct path to my heart was through a competently-played ukulele song by a pretty girl. We might have saved the expense and hardship of several years of courting.

    I certainly had no idea.

    You know this is just going to lead to bukakulele fetish films.

    I like her. She’s silly.
