Ever wonder where ukulele strings come from? It's time for the annual string harvest.

Another ukulele video by Litmus Films, whose previous work includes Ukuleles for Peace, as well as The Ukes Down

But if you really want to know how nylon strings are made, take a factory tour with Bosko & Honey (Part of their European safari)

The original is much funnier, really.

I thought some animated little guy was going to start harvesting the scratches running through the film.

Hee hee that was pretty awesome.

Ukulele Anthem - Amanda Palmer. (My brother was asking me what Palmer's deal was the other day, I played him this and he understood.)

"Just because your grades are low, doesn't mean you're failing", indeed. Suddenly I get the Amanda Palmer love, too.

And I already have the ukulele. Today is a good day.

Someone needs to tell whoever made that video that the random specks you see on old films aren't usually black. Or square.
