Week 26 – Jackson

HOLY SHITBALLS. HALFWAY.

It really doesn’t feel like six months have gone by. Wow. Six more to go. It’s neat to be on the other side of things. But also, I still have 26 more songs to learn, so I won’t celebrate just yet!

And by that, I mean celebrate being done, because I’m not! But I am halfway through my #ukuleleyear, and I invited my pal Jon to celebrate with me. We’ve been talking about doing a duet since we met in real life (at my new job), so now it’s happened!

Jon is a guest star on Friends Without Benefits! He’s also on Twitter (in case you didn’t notice)!

Okay, I’m sure I’m forgetting to say all sorts of things, but see you next week for WEEK 26 (A.K.A. HALFWAY)!!

Week 24 – La Vie En Rose

Since it’s Valentine’s week, I invited Vance back to do another duet with me!

You remember Vancey Pants (Terms of endearment in my world often end with the word “pants,” which is funny because I rarely wear them. Unless the term is referring to British pants. In that case, I have a pants obsession and I take pride in always wearing cute ones.) from Week 6, right? Here it is, just in case: http://youtu.be/MR2GBqK3ZTQ

He was my first duet, and now he’s my first return duet! (Let’s not count Adam from Week 8 coming back, because he came back to do a trio – special in and of itself!)

Of course, we did a crazy romantic song. If not because it’s Valentine’s Day soon, then to further perpetuate the rumours that we are madly in love and involved in some sort of torrid love affair.

We did an English version, which I love. We did it because it’s pretty and also because as you will learn, we are terrible at French.

Finally, before I shut up for this week, Vance and I are curating the Dark Matters Film Festival. If you are in Edmonton and you like horror and sci-fi and science and wine, you should come.

Week 23 – Black Hole

INTRODUCING MISS ACACIA WOOD. Isn’t she pretty?!

Dogs! Web series! Name tags! More She & Him!

Episode 1 of Friends Without Benefits is here: http://youtu.be/kmD2EWZ3yYw

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has watched and shared it so far!

Please comment on YouTube and leave me your requests and/or suggestions. Sometimes they don’t work because I can’t find music or they’re out of my vocal range or something else, but I am always looking for song suggestions!

I always feel like I’m leaving something important out of these video preambles/descriptions…
