Two weeks ago in I bought a ukulele in Hawaii…
Yeah, just one of those “why not?” kinda moments, ya know?
It’s like buying vodka in Russia: just feels right! (or so I’ve heard… ;)
Well—I’ve been playing this tiny contraption ever since! Whaddya think bruddah??
Seriously, this has been an AWESOME addition to my life: super lightweight, positive, and tons of songs to play!
PLUS, I just didn’t know when/if I’d ever play something again (played piano when I was younger – horrible at practicing). Never really thought about it, and I kinda assumed I just wasn’t talented that way.
Thank you RICH (a friend on the Big Island) for giving me this gift! :)
Alight – next up…
The First Episode of A Travelin’ Man!
Yes, I went and created a podcast.
Now before you get any ideas, I’m *not* committing to any regular kind of schedule (way too many other things going on)—this episode only came to be because of an extremely earning morning…
I woke up at 1:40 am and never went back to sleep.
LISTEN TO THE FIRST EPISODE…
With that lead-in, you’re probably thinking:
And what the hell did he talk about??
I know—these are important questions.
Well I can hardly answer the last one myself, but here’s what I do remember from that fog…
- The opening lines of Romeo and Juliet
- Banishing Fear Permanently (mp3’s and transcript)
- San Diego WDS
- Young and Raw’s cookie recipe
- Sammy the Way Out Seal, Robert Culp, and the song “Not in Nottingham” from Disney’s 1973 film of Robin Hood
Despite the time of day, I did enjoy doing this and I’m sure it’ll happen again at a normal hour (or maybe not). No plan about what this will be: could be more stream of consciousness, interviews, who knows!? :)
So what did you think of my first forays into public Ukulele playing and podcasting?? :)
From the road,
