We’ve seen the Time Lords many times throughout countless Doctor Who episodes. However we know very little about their culture. What do they like to do for fun? What kind of music do they like? Do Time Lords play the ukulele?
It’s the 35th anniversary of the release of Jaws this year, and the movie just got re-released in an awesome HD Blu-ray edition that you need to see if you haven’t already. In celebration of the shark-infested waters of yore, the guys from Celentano Woodworks have returned with another epic creation – the Jaws shark ukulele.
This awesome, handcrafted string instrument is sure to get a rise out of anyone with a fear of sharks, and is perfect for playing the familiar Jaws “dun-dun… dun-dun… dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun…” theme music (assuming you can play that on a ukulele.)
The ukulele’s body has been cut in the shape of a great white shark emerging from the water, and then adorned with a multitude of big, pointy teeth.
You can pick up an actual ukulele for under 50 bucks, but if you don’t like the idea of plucking real strings and would rather remain in your virtual world, you might want to check out the Futulele – which lets you play ukulele for the low, low price of both an iPad and an iPhone or iPod Touch, plus the app, plus a Futulele case.
Robots and ukuleles. They go together like, well, um, robots and ukuleles. Still, that doesn’t stop this Rock ’em Sock ’em Robot ukulele from being any less excellent.
From the looks of this Rock ’em Robot, he’s already had his block knocked off by another (as yet unseen) robo-ukulele.
If you know someone who’s a Transformers fan, and who also knows how to play string instruments, I think I just took care of your entire Christmas list for you. Yep, it’s a ukulele, fashioned in the shape of the Autobot’s symbol.
I took guitar lessons when I was a kid, but I never practiced because practicing anything wasn’t for me. The instructor kicked me out of class, and I moved on with my life. I have never seen a ukulele in real life, but I always thing of big Hawaiian dudes playing them as people get off a ship.
If our Bikini Bottom pals SpongeBob and his pet snail Gary were to form a band with Plankton and long hair, this is the guitar they would use. OK, technically the thing isn’t a guitar, it’s an electric ukulele.
