Smells Like Teen Spirit

tags: , , ,
Since I am a Seattle native, and since Seattle is the home of the grunge rock band, Nirvana, some of my readers are trying to use to get me in a London sort of spirit. In this case, a reader sent me this video of the Nirvana’s hit song, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” as played by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain [4:53]

I don’t know if I should laugh or scream.


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain are wonderful to see live. Here’s two of my favorites:
    You Don’t bring me Flowers
    Wuthering Heights
    And laughing is allowed.

    The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain are probably one othe most diverse talented amazing group of muscians ever to walk the planet. If you ever scream at their gig it is because you have reached a peak of ecstacy and have probably reached orgasm.
