So I've spent the morning perusing my latest favourite blogfind, favourito. You may notice that the "favour" part of the word is spelled the right way, with a U. This is because Sarah, the lovely author of said blog, lives in New Zealand. I've been thinking about jumping over to New Zealand after Library School (capital letters, it's a scary place)... First I was thinking of moving to Scotland, because I like the accents, but then I realized it would be colder and rainier than Vancouver, and I don't think I 'd like that. I think New Zealand would be just about perfect.
Anywho, favourito has been schooling me in all things NZ, and has led me to the exciting, happy-making find of the day, the Wellington International Ukelele Orchestra. One of the members is Bret McKenzie, of Flight of the Conchords (the one who's not my boyfriend). They are awesome!
I know the quality of the video is pretty shoddy, but I love that song to begin with, and it just made me so happy. I also recommend going to their MySpace page and listening to Road to Nowhere.
This band just made me want to be a part of something equally awesome and quirky and fun. I don't play the ukelele, but I do sing. Ever since I heard about the movie Young At Heart and about the musical group The Choir Practice, I've wanted to be in a choir that has nothing to do with Jesus (no offense, Jesus) and everything to do with pop music. I love singing.
