    Default I performed 3 VH songs from DD In front of hundreds of people at an amusement park!

    Yesterday my friend John and myself were at Holiday World amusement park and read that they were gonna have karaoke at 8. So we signed up to sing Pretty Woman(the Roy Orbison version though). I did lead,John did backup, and the crowd seemed to like it.I forgot the words to one part and just said I forgot this verse but no one cares Pretty Woman. Not only do I sing on key, but I've told I have a powerful voice and am known as a prey good front man as I have charisma. Later that night John and I signed up to do accapella songs. I walked on stage, and said "As I stare out into this crowd of people here at the Holiday World amusement park I'd just like to say thanks. For being here through the good, the bad, and us butchering Pretty Woman. We're gonna do 2 more songs. We're gonna take you back to 1982, a little band known as Van Halen(this received applause and cheering). This ones called Little Guitars(more cheering.)" I was on with the song. John started doing this wierd thing with his voice and it wasn't that great. After LG, we segwayed into a two man Happy Trails which was pretty good. A teacher of mine was there(English) said we did good and I had a stron voice. Anyway that's all. Oh Yeah, soon I'm gonna post a Happy Trails me and 4 friends did. We rocked it pretty awesome.

    I wish I could've seen it. Obviously has to be much better than the karaoke I heard at another fair.

    That's awesome! Reminds me of when me and my buddies did "Jump!" on karaoke at high school grad night.
    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    -Derrick Jensen, "What We Leave Behind"

    "You know what's weird to me is Christians who are against the death penalty. After all, if it weren't for the death penalty, we wouldn't celebrate Easter!"

    You should have said "LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE HERE TONIGHT",

    I like Karaoke it is a lot fun started doing it a bar down the street. Just some little redneck joint, not big enough for a band. The first song I did was hard luck woman by Kiss it was OK. Most people are doing country; I did couple of old outlaw era songs. Then I tried VH dance the night away, people in there did not get too much into it. So I did my second favorite group the Temptations canít get next to you, and Cloud nine. It was great all the honeys where out there on the floor my wife too, she loved it. Funny thing this girl that comes in whose 21 said the other day. I liked that song you did. I said who the Temps? She said no the Van Halen.

    It is a good time kind of like guitar hero for drunken adults.

    Right on, brother! If you don't sell it, the people won't buy it.

    Stepping out onstage takes a lot of nerve, well done.

    You never know, maybe one day you can hook up with Wolfgang.

    Why didn't you say, "I forgot the FUCKING WORDS!"

    So many great opportunities to quote Roth from the US Festival.

    Great to see a couple of fellow "Kentuckianians" here.
    We're in the middle of a pretty good snowstorm for this area. It figures. My band "DogWater" is playing Phoenix Hill tonight and I'll bet there won't be many people there. We can't even play for the ashtrays since the smoking ban took effect.
    Oh well. It'll be like rehearsal with a full bar in the room.
    Holiday World is a cool place.
