Last night I went out for some Karaoke with my wife and a few friends. We got a private room for four at a place on Sawtelle and had an amazing time. (Der Kommisar, anyone? She Blinded Me With Science?)
It was such a transformative experience, I wondered whether I should write about it. But not really.
And so one Google search later, I found Don’t Stop Believin’: How Karaoke Conquered the World and Changed My Life by Brian Raftery. [karaoke-packed blog here, Salon interview]
I love it when someone else has written the book already. I hope it’s good.

I write to you from the St Louis airport, enroute to Iowa City. Looking at the map on the plane, I see that I’ve come a little too far east, but I guess that’s how hubs work. And when you’re traveling on miles and points, that’s how you roll.
I invite my blogreading public to name the following phenomenon:
1. Read a news story.
2. Come up with knee-jerk, “a-ha,” joke about news story.
Larry Craig: “I am not gay.”
3. Google to see if anyone else has come up with it.
4. Find that someone else has already come up with the same lame joke.
5. Give up.
***Or ignore the fact that everyone else has done it and do it better***

I have to say, I saw this all over the intarweb the other day and gave it the big ol’ meh.
And then I clicked, finally.
I did not regret it.

Not to be missed. This is so much better than I thought it would be. Hilarious.
