That’s a lie. I can totally see the humour in the Harlem Shake. I caught wind of this latest YouTube viral video sensation about a week ago – having teenage cousins on my Facebook friends list helps with these things – but initially I thought it was just some in-joke at her highschool. But after listening to CBC’s Day 6 this morning I figured I would check it out. The trouble is now I want to make my own video, but I probably won’t. I don’t have the right kind of mask. Alas.
Speaking of Day 6, I’ve met Brent Bambury. A few years ago me and a couple of friends took up the ukulele, and started going to a weekly workshop geared towards teaching n00bs how to get their ukulele string on. A few weeks before my first session I had been listening to BB’s show (at the time it was called Go) and his guests that day happened to be the organizers of the ukulele night. BB acknowledged that he was learning how to play, but it never occurred to me that he would be at these Monday night groups. But there he was. As Miley Cyrus would say, “pretty cool“. I wonder if he’s keeping up his uke-in’ skillz…
These are my ukulele’s. *heart!*
In other news, my chia pet has begun to sprout! I need some practice with my seed distribution skills, but this first attempt was sort of a trial run (well, it is now…) so I’m not too worried about that just yet. As instructed I put the pet in a sealed clear plastic bag for a few days to help with the germinating process, and its working!
Long live the hippo!
