Wow. Sounds like a fantastic experience.

Last night we went out karaoke-ing for the first time in years. And SSW's singing voice was pretty rusty at first, and I didn't try to sing at all. She liked the place, at least for a long enough initial period, and is eager to go back. But her criteria for a good karaoke joint differ from mine... hers are about things like song selection, PA sound quality, and the level of other singers present. But I've decided that for myself, the number one criterion for a good karaoke venue is the absence of people who come there for alcohol rather than for singing. Because SSW's voice may be sweet and warm and lovely, but it is definitely not made to compete with yelling beer-drinkers.

One cool thing about this group is the number of fairly talented teenage and pre-teen singers it draws. Except that's not cool, because it's in a damn bar!

I've decided that my favorite (Aurelio) Voltaire song is Headless Waltz. "Get that damn thing off my neck!"

Slowed-down Chipmunks records sound kind of like the end of the world.

That's the most metal thing I've heard all day. And I started the day with the Butthole Surfers.

I finally gave a real listen to the song "My Humps”, and it really is every bit as awful as anyone has ever said. As bad and wrong as can be, in every way on every level. This could be the song that's remembered for generations as the one that sums up in a single statement everything that was wrong with the time from which it came. Like ”Disco Duck” or "Ice Ice Baby” for their respective decades, but far worse than either.

Neither have I. But my German hostdaughter loved them when she was in high school. Particularly Fergie.

Quote of the day: "Eminem has become the Yngwie Malmsteen of hip-hop: all shred with no songs."

I've been looking back a bit at Michael Jackson's heyday. Why was he considered the King of Pop? I'm not seeing anything all that exceptional about him as a musician or songwriter or vocalist. I'm becoming convinced that his superstardom was due more to his dancing than to his singing.

I'd argue that he had a pretty unique voice and some beyond catchy tunes. And I'm guessing the 50 million copies purchased weren't based purely on his dance moves. At the very least, he was the top selling pop artist of the period, so the moniker isn't totally without basis.

I don't know. I can't recall how old I was when the Jackson 5 exploded on to the pop scene - maybe 4 or 5 - but I adored "ABC." I never did understand until middle age that the song "Ben" was the theme song to the sequel to Willard. My mother told me it was the theme to the movie about a little boy's relationship with a brown bear, Gentle Ben, but that song was also in my head. Then Rockin' Robin....that kids wasn't too far from my age, but he sang like he was ten-years-older. His was one of the deepest musical souls I ever knew. But the music business is, unfortunately, also the oasis of the insane. And sadly, he wasn't very smart and he was taught by very stupid greedy people that he never had to be.

You know that British song that goes "And did those feet in ancient time walk upon England's mountains green?" I've always been fascinated by it, and finally I had to go and write about it.

I listened to a few tracks (Israel; Halloween; Arabian Nights) by Siouxie and the Banshees, but decided that their sound wasn't for me.
