Originally posted by The ThrillI am guaranteed to CRUSH YOU ALL in karaoke. Remember, I is a professional! :-) Thursdays here in Titletown, USA, you can find yours truly running karaoke at a bar called Shooters. And if you're one of "my people," you get WWE entrance music as you step up to the microphone.
A lot of the older clientele prefers country, but our all-digital computerized system has a damn good variety. And I will kick all your asses on "Brandy," "Vehicle," "Minnie the Moocher," or just about any Sinatra tune.
If we're having an All-W karaoke battle royale (w/ cheese), it must take place at my bar. Sec19Row53, Stephanie, cranlsn, ScreamingHeadGuy (and now that you're only 5 hours away, CRZ), I'm looking at you...

If I make it up there this year, my rendition of Heart of Rock & Roll stands at the ready. Tremble in anticipation...or fear. Your choice.
My two favorite karaoke places are virtual opposites from each other. I attend a function at a hotel's lounge every few weeks, and their crowd is usually quite low key unless an overplayed, super popular country song is performed.
The other is a dive, a hole, where the people are loud, the beer is cheap, and it's standing room only. I prefer the former of the two, but the latter has MY song, and people can't stop laughing when I do it Stevie style.
That song? Ice Ice Baby.
I can't believe I just admitted that. I'm gonna go hide in that corner over there. :-)
The SOK has seen the following cinematic masterpieces so far this year:
Eurotrip; Scooby Doo 2; Shrek 2; The Ladykillers; Spider-Man 2; Anchorman; 13 Going On 30; Day After Tomorrow; Harry Potter 3.
I'll second that. And while there's certainly a grain of truth to the idea, don't you think that Kerry would be more likely to at least nudge us gently, perhaps, in the direction of socialized medicine? Bush sucks in the spending dept.
