Karaoke


*****UPDATED*****
February 11, 2006
9:55pm


I never make it to karaoke when it starts, I am always late getting there. My karaoke buddies always give me shit for getting there late.

Last night was not an exception. Again, I arrived fashionably late. One of my karaoke buddies grabs me and tells me to sign up for the karaoke contest. I think why not? I mean I figured it was a local contest, winner wins $50 or something like that.

Well, I find it strange that when I signed up I had to put my name, address, phone number, rank and serial number. *grin* No really just my name, address, and phone.

The contest begins. The owner announces that there will be four finalist. Two men and two women. There are some really good singers, ones I know are going to be one of the finalist. For the first time in years I am really nervous to sing, so I drink a couple beers a bit more rapidly than I normally would have.

"DustStormDiva is our next contestant." My friends hoop and hollar and make a huge noise while I go to get the microphone. The music starts and I belt out Total Eclipse of the Heart like I never have before. The song ends and the crowd roars. That's always a rush to me.

To make a long story short, I am one of the four finalist. I guess this is a national thing. I try out again in April. If I make it as one of the finalist then, I can go to the state tryouts. And if I make it as one of the finalist there, I can go on to Vegas and try out at the regionals for a grand prize of $5000.

Anyway, this was not just a normal karaoke night. It was, however, a great time.

Inspirational Thought:

And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

That is awesome - you, like, totally rock!

I love karaoke, although all of my singing buds have moved on. "Wanted Dead or Alive," and "Something to Believe In" are my best, which ain't sayin all that much.

Way to go, Dusty. Keep your eyes on the prize!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

Something to Believe In is one of my very most favorites. Can I call you sometime and we can sing it together? Just email me your phone number.

I had a karaoke weekend also! Too cool! We went to some friends house in Olympia for the weekend, and went to a place we've gone before, but they had a new DJ and he rocked! Awesome sound system and a great play list. So I know how you feel, however, you'll never have to worry about me for any kind of competition. LOL! Congratulations on making the final four!

Wow, i'm glad you did well. I would like to hear you sing 'total eclipse of the heart',one of my choice songs. Maybe sometime we can make some music together. Good luck in the next contest.

Hey diva,

Sounds like your handle was well chosen. I had known that you liked karaoke and that you frequently did it but had no clue that you might actually be a bonafide talented singer. Just makes me wonder what other secret talents you could surprise us with as I have little doubt there are others.

Have someone videotape you do this next time if possible.

Other hidden talents? hehe well, we would have to meet one on one for me to show you those, my dear.

Video tape? Hmmm, never thought of that. I just might do that.

Congats, I too like to sing karaoke, but haven't done it in a few weeks. People don't get into it here like they did in the last town I was in. They're more into live music. Sooo I've started singing with bands on open mike night. Which is just as cool, and I seem to get a better response from the locals. Plus you never know what you're gonna get, as far as what the band does.

So, It's just as fun.

Anyhoo, Hope ya win some loot for having fun!
