“What I Wouldn’t Do” by A Fine Frenzy (ukulele cover)

My second ukulele cover. I used a better microphone this time, but it is definitely far from perfect. I recorded it after a long day at Hakone visiting the Open-Air Museum (http://www.hakone-oam.or.jp/english/) and the Hakono Yuryo onsen! The museum was so much fun, and the onsen (hotspring/public bath) was so relaxing- once I was used to being naked with a ton of women. I’ll post photos later! .. of the museum, that is.

Last time I made a cover was during a typhoon. Today as I was converting this video there was a small but kind of long earthquake.

Dear world: within two years Anabel Hirano and I will be an amazing harmonizing double bass-ukulele duo in Tokyo. Maybe.

Today I was scolding the rowdier boys in class while pulling down the giant projector screen. Bonked myself lightly on the head with a small surprised “ow”, and the whole class said in unison “kawaii!” Nooooo~

I can’t make this up. Rough translation: Playlist you want to listen to when your wife of one year finally farts in front of you.

“Breakable” Ukulele Cover

My friends here all know that I recently bought a ukulele, and I’ve become a little obsessed with it. Perhaps I’ll eventually give it a name. Because of the current typhoon I’ll be stuck inside the apartment for a while, and so on a whim I recorded myself playing it.

 

EDIT: My ukulele is now named Akane (茜) Arabella. It goes by Akane in the daytime and Arabella by night. (I was reading Atonement when I bought it…)
