Week 22 – Strawberry Wine

Where do I even begin?

My BFFs (I said it!) Trent Wilkie and Adam Rozenhart joined me on the set of Friends Without Benefits (A.K.A. the office Adam and I work our 9-5 jobs together at) for a very special group ukulele jam of one of Trent’s very favourite songs.

Here it is, folks.

Our web series is launching this Thursday, January 29 at the Mercury Room. If you’re in Edmonton and you like to laugh, please come out and do so!

Side note: This video could have easily been 25 minutes long. You’re welcome. (And keep your eyes peeled for an “OMG I’m halfway through my #ukuleleyear!” blooper reel.)

Week 21 – Dreaming

This is Andrea on (even more) exhaustion (than the last exhausted video)! Isn’t she fun?

I fucking love Blondie. I can’t believe I waited so long to do a Blondie song. But in my defence, a lot of her other songs use VERY tricky chords. This one is nice and simple. Good thing it’s one of my favourites of hers!

Don’t even get me started on the lighting. That’s what I get for shooting a video through the sunset, but I had no choice – my schedule is ri-goddamn-donculous right now.

For the record, that natural light? Where I look all hot and shit? That’s how I usually look. Or something. Yeah.

Something something superheroes.

I have post-Zumba-and-three-hours-of-sleep-last-night brain.

OKAY BYE.

Next week will be fun and funny.

Week 20 – I Could’ve Been Your Girl

20 weeks! That’s like FIVE WHOLE MONTHS. I’m kind of flabbergasted that I’m nearing the halfway point already, to be honest. I feel like I just started this thing.

So…Friends Without Benefits!

Like I said, my pals Adam and Trent and I have started a monthly sketch comedy web series. The first episode comes out on January 29th, and we’re throwing a big ol’ launch party for it. If you’re in Edmonton, you should come. Find the details on our social media!

Coooooooool.

Oh, and here’s a ukulele song. Have I mentioned that I love She & Him?

Week 19 – The Way I Am

Happy New Year, everyone!

I LOVE THIS SONG. It is in my DNA, I’m sure. Hashtag SWOON. That is all.

Just for fun, here’s a little commercial/intro to PiYo: http://youtu.be/8ZPZJgyGMrs

Not much monkeying around this week – just a bit of fishing.
