Many of us remember a time when basketball shorts barely covered the gonads, computers were for the birds, and playing ukulele earned you a seat at the cafeteria's misfit table and a backstage pass at the Tiny Tim concert. Today those shorts would get you arrested, computer expertise earns the big bucks, and videos of solid uke playing generates millions of views and accolades on YouTube. Oh yeah, the times they are a-changin'!

A trio of music videos and a few live clips show Shimabukuro doing what he does best, and an interview with the musician offers insight into just what drives his remarkable creativity.
