I know I’ve mentioned this before, but Karaoke has to be one of my favorite pass times.
My first Karaoke experience was in Japan with a group of Postal Workers. It was at the end of my “Postmaster for the day” celebration, which was one of those crazy only-in-Japan things that I now look back on and wonder if it really happened or if it was a figment of my imagination. I shared the honor with Ultraman and was required to sign a few fake postal documents. I’m pretty sure it happened…
My point is that this very first Karaoke experience set me up to enjoy Karaoke the RIGHT way – without inhibition and with as much enthusiasm as you can manage. Also, with Sake.
It was the single most fun Karaoke experience of my life.
A couple of weeks ago, I followed up with arguably my second most fun Karaoke night ever. I don’t know exactly what made it so great. It could have been the great mix of friends, a diverse song list or the the just-enough alcohol consumption. I’m pretty sure it was a mix of all three. All I know is that it was the perfect recipe for a night of fun, laughter and some killer dance moves.
On to the photographs. Excuse the funky lighting and out-of-focus shots – although I much prefer the photos of me that are out of focus. Thanks to Suzi for picking up the camera.
And if you make it to the end, you might just find our eclectic playlist.
Apologizing in advance for the next one – sorry guys, but it’s awesome.
The next one’s blurry, but I love it!
I also love the photos that show of some of the complicated lyrics.
And that we’re not afraid to go a little gangsta.
Please don’t judge the playlist, although I think everyone can agree that we ended on a high note. 🙂
