Latest Buffett Headlines


Friday, February 20, 2009


Just a funny little thing I found while looking for the usual serious Buffett stuff.

God knows us market watchers could use some light relief.

Two guys (Roger & Dave) with a sense of humour and a willingness to help out the little guy are giving till it hurts by playing the entire Beatles catalogue on ukulele, with the help of Warren's son, Peter.

They are giving the proceeds of a December 2008 concert to Warren!

Below is their acheivement in their own words.

Go and check out their site, its kinda funny in a Flight of the Chonchords sort of way.

Who Are Roger And Dave

Roger and Dave are Performance philanthropists who write songs, create installations, make visual art, write books, produce records, organize performances, produce films, re-create historical events and share a weakness for beauty.

On Sunday December 7, 2008, a day that will live in Infamy, Roger Greenawalt, 67 singers, 37 musicians, a Yoko impersonator & his ukulele performed the entire Beatles catalogue (184 songs) over a 14 hour period.

We chose to do this show as a benefit, but were unable to decide whom to give the money to. Then it came to us.

Let's give it to Warren Buffett!

Frankly if we kept the money we'd just spend it on Viagra, records, and cat food. Otherwise we would just waste it.

Warren will know what to do.

The films directed by David Barratt on this site will tell the story of how the show came about, the music and how Roger and Dave will deliver the money to Warren's home.
