The Ukulele Mixtape →
I’ve put together a free Ukulele Mixtape of Creative Commons songs including the likes of Jonathan Coulton, Amanda Palmer, Craig Robertson and Howlin’ Hobbit. Plus many equally talented people you may not have heard of.

"Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark."
"Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world."
Have you ever thought about how crazy it is that a book can move you so strongly? It’s just printed words, different rearrangements of letters, lines and curves shaped into symbols, printed into paper. It’s just a story. But it has the power to move us, to inspire us, to make us feel.
