A collection of great short film and video from around the web.

This never fails to make me happy.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is very, very white. And very, very British. And they play ukulele covers. Like show choir or a cappella cover groups, it's awesome and dorky and totally sincere and great, though I am very very glad that I got to be a show choir nerd and an a cappella nerd before the days of YouTube. Some things (like painfully white people doing Prince covers, complete with "sexy" dancing) should not be immortalized. Maybe 10 years from now I should check back in with the kids who are documenting their teen angst as it happens and see how they feel about seeing all of it archived on the internet forever. But this ukulele cover of Lou Reed's Satelitte of Love totally should be immortalized. Truly we live in a golden age, where consenting adults form ukulele ensembles on the other side of the earth and post their performances for everyone to see.
