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.
Never pick a fight with a man who buys his ink by the barrel - Mark Twain I think that sentiment can neatly apply to this situation, or anyone where someone tries to get the last word with the guy who owns the board.
