A little over 2 weeks between now and the PAHHTY!

Get your $20 WEBCAM now and test it out!

I think I will book a local Hotel Room to run the party from instead of the Cafe so I can do some Dancing.  :icon_mrgreen:

I think doing some Poetry Reading might be fun.  Pick out a Favorite Poem to read.  Or we can do a Karaoke Contest!   :icon_mrgreen:

RE

Um...I'll drink some beer...

Karaoke Contest?!!!  That would be horrible.  The only way that's acceptable is drunk at a bar IMO.

My Singing ALWAYS improves after 5-6 pops. Doesn't yours?

(BTW, apropos of nothing, Contrary used to front a punk band back in the day and is the fking QUEEN of Karaoke. Pretty decent for a "woman of a certain age."

On the PS3 I can nail "Like a Surgeon" by Weird Al ... and I've got "Roses" by OutKast down pretty good too....

Diner 2nd Anniversary Party- T-Minus 72 hours and Counting!
« Reply #22 on: February 13, 2014, 02:48:39 AM »
I hope you guys have got your $20 Webcams hooked up and are ready to Burn the Internet Down:icon_mrgreen:

I'll be hooking up to Google Hangouts sometime Sat Late Afternoon-Evening my time.  I may periodically Start and Stop recordings, each time I do that I will need to start a New Hangout with a New Link.  I will post up the New Link here in this thread each time I do this.

I will also send out Email Links to a few of our Cross Posting Friends, to see if maybe they show up for a while to Party Down with us also.  Specifically, I will send links to Gail, David, Ugo, Albert, John, George, Paul and Ringo.  OK, no Ringo Cross Poster yet. LOL.

As added INCENTIVE for showing up at the PAHHTY, I am adding 2 more Karaoke Hits to my Repertoire, I will also do Tennessee Ernie Ford's 16 Tons, and Jimmy Dean's Big Bad John:icon_mrgreen:

I am picking an Octave range here I generally can hit OK without being too Off-Key.  LOL.

Anybody else gonna Karaoke with me?  What are your songs?

I will not Karaoke until I have at least a 6 Pack of Sam Adams under my belt.  :icon_mrgreen:

Adding songs?  That's an incentive?

I'm one of the few Welshmen who cannot carry a tune even with a fork lift.  I have been known to break into a drunken rendition of "The Woad Song" along with a certain Archdruid, when the single malt had flowed quite freely...   

Don't make me send the wife around to shut off the music.  She's flying up there Saturday.  :icon_mrgreen:

So is the hangout Saturday evening or Sunday?  What night do you have the hotel room?

soooo, no way I'm participating in Karaoke.

Last time I did Karaoke was probably before I was married, and it would have been at a bar, drunk. 

However, listening to RE sing Karaoke will likely be highly entertaining.  However, it also would likely result in me disappearing. 

But pahhty on dudes :icon_sunny:

I'll be sure to have plenty of beer on hand.

I'm thinking laptop + projector + spa for the California end of the party.

Okay, found the time.  Thought it was the Sunday.

I'll get my stuff set up and may join you later but cannot guarantee when.  Have prior commitments Saturday evening, could go as late as midnight PST.   Will dial in at some time.

RE - no need to wait on the karaoke...     :icon_mrgreen:

If nobody is going to join me in Karaoke, I'll save it for the Toothstead so you can listen Live & In Person:icon_mrgreen:

I am thinking this should be a SUN  :icon_sunny: Initiation Rite of Passage, every new Heliopath has to do at least one Karaoke and broadcast it on the World Wide Web. LOL.
