#266 - Grow old with you

Song - Grow old with you
Artist - Adam Sandler
Ah man! I totally missed my blogs birthday! Anyway, this means I have been at this just over a year and that's pretty neat! I'm not really that close to having had a song every single day, but I don't think that 266 videos is all that bad either. I'm not sure the direction this blog will take from here. It's becoming apparent that I don't really have the time to do one every single day, so maybe I'll shoot for a couple a week. I would also like to start doing more collaborations and originals. Another thing I would love to see on this blog would be contributions from other folks, ukulele or otherwise as long as you're inspired!

I did this song for Felix's birthday last year and even though his b day was a few days ago, I don't think it's too late for a song :)

#265 - What'll I do

Song - What'll I do
Artist - Irving Berlin

I am a huge fan of "This American Life". We would catch on the weekends sometimes when I was a kid, but as soon as I got my first ipod, their episodes were the first thing I put on it. As nerdy as it is for me to admit, I listen to it while I run. If I have my earbuds in you can guess I'm listening to This American Life!

Last week one of my favorite contributes to the show, David Rakoff, passed away. I don't usually put a lot of thought into the death of celebrates, they weren't someone I knew and while I feel for their families it is not something I dwell on. But I am saddened by the death of David Rakoff. He had a unique and interesting writing style and approach to the world. Even his voice was interesting and when he had a story on TAL you knew it was going to be good.

I listened to the tribute show to him today and they played this song at the end. Here is my own little tribute to the great David Rakoff.

Artist - Carly Rae Jepsen

It's been a while so I figured I would go for it and do the poppiest song I could think of! I actually haven't heard this song but a few times, so it was fun to do.

So where the heck have you been Hanna? I'll tell ya! I got a new job and I absolutely love it. I'm working at the Oregon Humane Society now and it is an absolute blast. I honestly enjoy what I'm doing and feel like I'm really giving back to my community. The hours and days are new and different but it all feels worth it because I enjoy getting up and going to work in the morning. I'll find how the uke fits into this new schedule, but for now I'm trying to figure out how my little family still has time for me while we adjust.

In other words, stay tuned and I'll be back with more regularity in the upcoming months!
