    Thanks ukuleledaddy for teaming up this week!

    (Oh, and notice the Earth-friendly bamboo uke in my hands. That uke's sustainable, baby.)
    Nice duo guys!!! Nice bamboo uke too!

    You sound great together. Thanks.

    Lots going on since I last checked in,
    Strumsilly, that was ambitious, but you pulled it off. Beautiful tune.
    UkuleleDaddy, Eco Anthem in the trees, great stuff.
    Welcome Benjoeuke, glad you're aboard, nice job with a tough song.
    Uke4ia, you are awesome, you come on all straight and normal with the home office and the button down shirt and then haul it over the rocks like nobody's business. Love it.
    ReaderMo, you made it through one of the most verbose songs ever with nary a stumble. Impressive.
    Glass, you are a force of nature. A force for good. Nothing re-used about that performance. Excellent.
    I think I already commented on Eugene's song. I'm still astonished.
    Nice showing this round.
    AM I the only one doing two entries? The rules are a little ambiguous as they say you may do Shakespeare OR Earth Day, but then further down:"you may enter two performances, but only one for each category"
    thanks friends, peewee
    Thanks for the kind words....I figure I just like to record and hopefully may win something. Still learning alot but having fun!!!

    Can I count the "Hamlet" video I posted on the first page toward the Earth Day contest because it's recycled from 2008? I just thought today of an Earth Day song that I'd be interested in doing, but I don't know if I'll find the time by Sunday. I'm doing an open mic night tomorrow, and that's my priority at the moment.
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    My 6 y.o. daughter just saw me scroll past your vid and said "Oh I love that guy can we see that?" Your appeal is universal, Jon!

    mattydee...before i invest too much time in this next song, might i inquire if just mentioning Shakespears name in the song lyrics qualifies and or just barely meets the requirements?
    if not, i'll try another! thanks!
    just trying to have fun and be silly!

    That'll do. We've already got two entries so far which have qualified in that manner...
    MELE KOA/MAHOGANY SOPRANO | OHANA VITA-UKE | MARTIN STYLE 1 (1920s)
    TALSMA HOLLYWOOD CONCERT | MAINLAND BANJO-UKE CONCERT
    LANIKAI O8-EK | MAINLAND RED CEDAR BARITONE

    I don't think I'm going to get an entry in on time I've been ridiculously busy, and now I'm sick too. So if anyone wants to borrow my song, I was going to do Green Sleeves, which is mentioned in The Merry Wives of Windsor, right after Falstaff says "Let the sky rain potatoes!"
