Should we K, or should we, no?


All'yas got to let me know
Should we K or should we, no?
If you're not sure - it will be fine
We'll all be home again sometime
So you got to let me know
Should we K or should we, no?
To avoid Zzzs Zzzs Zzzs
You need to take just one of these
It will be fine though hell is black
It would be best to avoid all that
Well come on an' let me know
Should we K or should we, no?

K @ K's this R?

Knowledge of Sh*tty Songs that Everyone was Already Happy to have Forgotten


I am still a bit off balance by this whole thing... sorry I am late getting this out, but it has taken this long to process.... Did that guy really just do Orinoco Flow?

By that guy, I mean that guy right there... the large one... the vaguely Thespian one? W. O. W.

I didn't even realize anyone whose voice wasn't FIRST, heavily processed through a synthesizer and SECOND, had all the parts where you have to take a breath spliced out in the studio, could even approach that song, let alone do it in a Karaoles-like venue (i.e. crappy bar, crappy sound system, crappy CD+G arrangement, and no-talent wannabe "performers").

I gotta say he gets an "A" for "Audacity" but an "F" for "Trying hard but Still Falling off that Tight-rope"

W. O. W.

Otherwise a pretty tame night... that same guy continued to try to impress everyone with his Tenacious-D sensibilities and knowledge of sh*tty songs that everyone was already happy to have forgotten - but in the end he was a one-trick pony.

Jimmy was either mellow or separated from reality... or both.

It was good to see everyone though I did miss Barbie the Xmas Tramp.

The night was exceptional in that I must of dosed Lisa too much because we were the last ones to leave

The Line up that I Remember... Ah screw it... I really don't remember much past that Orinoco Flow incident

People should feel free to comment with what they remember...

A Kristmas Karaole









(inspired by White Christmas)

I'm dreaming of a white trash Christmas
Just like all the ones before
Where Daddy's missin', and children listen
for him to stumble in the door

I'm dreaming of a white trash Christmas
With every tavern your Ma calls
May she find your Daddy to-night...
And may both your parents be home tonight!

12/22 has been christened as A Kristmas @ Karaoles.
Anybody interested in K @ K's on that R?

Happy Birthday

We had a wonderful Birthday Celebration last night @ K's for K on R. Wonderful in a K kind of way. If "creepy" + "lecturous" +"old" + "drunken" >= "wonderful" then wonderful it was.

It was R's birthday and she said some very nice things that reminded me what a treat and privilege it is to know her.

Normally, I feel like the farm hands from Wizard of Oz - I am happy just to be invited in the house to stand in the back of the room awkwardly holding my hat and paying my respects.

It is gravy to also be included in the happy swirl of all the friends and goings on and for sweet things being said to remind me of the value of friendship.

I just will say, "Happy Birthday" , but I am really saying "thank you" for all the years of fun and friendship.

Signs, Wonders and Revelations

Due to some top-flight sleuthing and reportage, Rhonda was able to ferret out some quality "info" about our Karaoling Lokale...

* BikerBouncer2 also goes by the handle, "Kevin"
* Marie is d-e-d, dead (!!)
* Jimmy also goes by the handle, "Jimmy Currie" - as in, "Mr. Currie I hope to never see you before this Court in the future!"
* Lil'Jimmy is 27 years young: Current Status: Unemployed (!!)
* The Restaurant down the street from Karaoles?: NO HOT DOGS (!!)
* The strip of Ashland in front of Karaoles?: NOT FIXED NEXT YEAR (!!)
* Bonus Fact: Jimmy is 68 (going on 69) and is still living (!!)

Truly Signs, Wonders and Revelations!

Otherwise a Our-Group-Dominated-Night - tight rotation, no gaps except for Matchbox Kenny, of course. No Characters - old, new or otherwise.

THE LINE UP
Ryan: DR. MY EYES, MIDNITE CONFESSIONS, I LOVE THE RAINY NIGHTS
Rhonda: 9 TO 5, CECELIA, PRIVATE EYES
The Alien: SWEET CAROLINE
Lisaf: CALL ME, I LOVE ROCKANDROLL, SURRENDER (duet with Chris)
Chris: ACT NATURALLY, LOVESICK BLUES, SURRENDER (duet with Lisaf)

See you next R for K @ K's!

No Threat, No Worries

It turns out Special "No-Threat" Glasses really liven up a Birthday "Performance". However averting one's eyes does not avert the threat of a case of the High Life Flu.

No Worries. A small price to pay for a outstanding K session. While Jimmy was off and Little Lord Not Jimmy was bartending, Jimmlet did her best to keep things light. Even donning the Special "No-Threat" Glasses for some candid bartending shots. The fact that she ripped one of the earpieces off was compensated by an excellent bandaid-aided repair job! (And by some complementary Watermelon shots for the Birthday Gal).

Nice rotation, lots of our group up on "stage". It was a Birthday Gal All Request Night - so lots of old favorites were "performed" according to her exacting specifications.

We were struck by the lack of Characters present... really only Jimmlet and Mrs. Jimmy! I think this means that after all this time we have become the local color (??!!)

Other things of note:

Hell has had a make-over. New Plumbing (hillbillied of course - with the requisite hillbilling it more by erecting a fence to keep the drunks from climbing all over the hillbillied plumbing).

Jimmlet is 42 going on 402.

High Life can take on a semi-solid, viscous form when extruded, playdoh-factory style, out of your pores the next morning while sweating your way to work in a thunderstorm on your bike.

The LINE UP

The Alien: CRACKLIN ROSE, I'M TOO SEXY FOR MY SHIRT, FATBOTTOMED GIRLS (duet with Rhonda)
Katie: WHAT'S GOIN ON?, CECILIA, THE HUMPTY DANCE
Mark: THESE EYES (eye-theme)
Dave: BRANDY
Ryan: KEEP ON LOVIN YOU, PRIVATE EYES (eye-theme)
Rhonda: 9 TO 5, FATBOTTOMED GIRLS (duet with the Alien), BABY GOT BACK (in answer to katie's Humpy Dance)
Chris: FOLSUM PRISON BLUES, OKIE FROM MUSKOGEE

See you next R @ K's for K!
