I just added Burn’s Alley to the schedule. Been there on Wednesday nights since April. Ooops.
I threw away the songbooks and made new ones. All my songs, including 50 new ones, are in there. I fixed some typos. There’s still some doubles I missed, but I think I got em looking much better.
Also, I’m no longer at Mellow Mushroom on Wednesdays. Management was very weird about it and I had to go in on my night off to find out I wasn’t working there anymore. It’s awkward, but I loved the people who work there and hung out to sing on Wednesdays. I owe most of them shots next time I see them. Let me know if you have any ideas for what I should do on Wednesdays from now on: email@example.com or 843-345-3406.
Oh, and someone is working on getting my songlist searchable online. I’ll have it here as soon as he’s done with it. Thanks for being patient.
I’ve learned that people actually do look here for info about my karaoke nights. I was under the impression that most people found my karaoke gigs through facebook. I apologize for the lack of updates and the ridiculous header scroll that is too fast to read. I’m working on an update to the whole site, hopefully by the end of the year.
I need to include prop/costume building and events somewhere because lately that has been taking up more of my time than karaoke anyway. I know a lot of people have asked where that info can be found, well soon, it will be here.
I’ve updated the books with the newest additions, 102 of them!
I’ve got a busy month ahead of me. Almost every Saturday in October I’m doing stuff with the 501st Legion (Star Wars Stormtroopers). This weekend it’s Star Wars Reads Day at the Charleston County Library (Main Branch on Calhoun St downtown) from noon-4pm. Next week is the Friends of the Library Book Sale at the Omar Shrine Auditorium at Patriot’s Point from 10am-3pm. October 19th is the 2nd Take Flight Comic Book Sale at the Sparrow (I might be the only trooper there).
I’ve also got work this month. I’m doing a house party the night of the 19th and I’m gonna be running sound for Carnivalesque at Skinful on the 26th. I’ll have tickets to sell for that really soon. Please buy them from me because that’s how I’ll get paid for being the most sober person there.
I know I say it in every post, but I don’t update here enough. Tomorrow, Sept 24th, it’s Crawdaddy’s Con! I know it’s a dumb name, but that’s what they told me to call it. It’s basically karaoke with a nerdy costume contest. $100 each for the best costumes in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Comic Books… sexy and scary are for Halloween, this is nerdy costumes only!
I’m going to Dragon Con in Atlanta for Labor Day weekend. While I’m gone, I’ve got people covering my gigs at Local 616 on Thursday (now we have karaoke there every week!) and The Upper Deck. I should be back in town in time for karaoke at Big Gun on Labor Day (Monday). My priority for the week I’m back is making a couple of new karaoke tracks and updating the books with the list of what I’ve bought the last couple of months.
Hey guys, still adding new karaoke songs all the time. Click “New Songlist Additions” above to see what’s new. It’s hard to motivate myself to print new lists for the books when I know you guys are gonna spill beer in them or just tear out pages for no reason. I’ll do it eventually.
Keeping busy with the karaoke schedule, so I haven’t posted much. I was told on Saturday, that I needed to update the songs on the website. Well, I’ve only got 34 new songs since the last time I printed lists for the books, but now they’re online!
I’ve been procrastinating on updating the “new songs” in the books for 2 reason. First, I haven’t gotten a lot of new stuff. You guys just haven’t been asking for things lately and my friends who make their own karaoke tracks haven’t been putting stuff out as regularly.
Secondly, I need to replace the books completely because the people handling them have been spilling so much on them and leaving them sitting in puddles of booze on the tables. I threw one away last week because there was mold growing on half of the pages. I need to throw away a couple more. Making new books is a long process and it’s not cheap. I just made these in September. I usually like to get 2-3 years out of them. I don’t know why people have been so much more clumsy with them or just disinterested in their condition. I hope that changes, but it’s hard to want to spend my time and money on something that’s going to be treated so badly.
Either way, there’s 90-something new songs on the “new songs” page here. I’ll try to get that in the books this weekend and reprint the whole thing in a week or two.
