The Eternal Ukulele Summit: 3:00 p.m. Saturday.
The Inevitable and Inexcusable Actors' Improvisation Workshop: 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

I was channel-flipping last night and caught part of a bio about songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen.  The narrator said it's hard to find a mid-century recording artist who hasn't covered a Van Heusen song.  Well, sure enough, we've got one in the uke packet so we can all qualify as mid-century artists.  Quote from Sinatra: "I'd be Jimmy Van Heusen if I could only pass the physical."

In the uke packet this year:
Polly Wolly Doodle
Tom Dooley
Drunken Sailor
That song in the new Pixar short (spoilers!)
Mbube (something about a lion...)
The Book of Love (Magnetic Fields)
Your Cheatin' Tombaugh Regio
Urban Spaceman (Neil Innes)
Mr. Spaceman (Jim McGuinn)
Come Take a Trip in my Airship
Friend of the Devil (because Musecon is cheaper than a ticket for the Solider Field concerts)
You Are My Lucky Star
Swinging on a Star (Van Heusen's first Oscar)
The Galaxy Song (Eric Idle) (inexplicably not an Oscar-winner)
