I have things to say

I don't have a lot of desire to write anything, but I'll do my best.

I went and did karaoke at Goldie's tonight. There was like six people there all night. I arrived at about 11 and did 5 songs. They were all off the cd that quent burned for me from his crazy karaoke collection and it ruled. Grandmaster Flash's The Message is a difficult song to do. The Streets' Blinded by the Lights is way silly and I will be doing that one more often. More karaoke tomorrow night! You should join the group! Goldie's on Airport Way!!

I was suppose to hang out with this girl from MySpace, but she canceled on me at the last minute. She wants to reschedule for this weekend, though. I have to pay my cell phone bill before then or else it will get shut off. I hate not having a regular income.

I'm going to sleep a little bit and try to make myself wake up for the USA v Ghana World Cup game in the morning at 7 am.

The Message is one of my high rotation regular songs.

It was a lot of fun to attempt and with a bit of practice, it would be impressive to drop in the middle of a bar. I'm going to have to work on it.

Yeah, I have to admit I practiced at home for weeks before I tried it in a bar. I don't even have to look at the monitor.

I rarely practice any song. I don't really care if I suck or fuck up a song too much generally, but them faster songs are difficult without a little preemptive understanding of the flow.

The thing that messed me up the most was this guy who was rapping right along with me while I was doing the song. He was really loud and it kept on throwing me off when I was trying to focus.

I've really only practiced raps. No matter how much you think you know how a rap goes, you don't.

I want to practice that Streets song some more and then when I go up, I can have this killer british accent and it will rule!

I only have one disc. I give the host the disc and a note that says which track on my cd.

Karaoke cds only hold like 60 minutes of music, just like any other cd. Have you ever seen those guys that bring in their own cd wallet filled with music?

Still, I'd get bored doing only music I provided. Part of the fun for me is trying to work with the karaoke book that is provided.
