Some Karaoke Suggestions

Ever been hanging out somewhere when some genius gets the brilliant suggestion to sing karaoke? It's usually a fun time, well, at least a funny time. Most people can't sing anyway. But standing in line waiting to sing, what do you pick? This question has plagued many a potential karaoke-r. Here, some ideas I think you should consider.

Twist and Shout by The Beatles

For one, you get to yell. And everybody knows the song and can sing along. When Twist and Shout was used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off in the 80's, it shot up the charts. This from a song released in the 60's. Everybody knows Twist and Shout!

Psycho Killer by Talking Heads

The ability to passionately deliver this Talking Heads classic, combined with the "funny" lyrics, make Psycho Killer one of my favorite songs to sing in my car at the top of my lungs.

House of the Rising Sun by The Animals

Another song most people know the lyrics to, Eric Burdon was one of the great 60's white soul singers. When played loudly the organ pierces your brain and my voice gets all raspy by the end of singing it!

1) I like peanut butter cookies. If you can make peanut butter cookies or otherwise have some way of obtaining peanut butter cookies (i.e. you can murder a baker and steal cookies, or your mom can make 'em) that would be a good start.
2) You'll have to pass the cool test which consists of liking good music (as defined by me, the upmost authority on cool), liking Arrested Development (the t.v. show) and/or 30 Rock and …

Philippines Vacation: Day Two

The next day, we woke up and went to the restaurant at our "hotel" for breakfast. It took some time to get it, but while we waited, we chatted up the staff and some of the other travelers. We were given ube to eat before our food arrived. Ube is a purple root that tastes great by itself. I loved it.

Preparing for Vietnam

Each year I get two weeks of vacation, one in the summer, one in the winter. That does not seem like a lot, and it is not, but I enjoy my job anyway. However, I really needed this vacation. We had decided to check out Vietnam on the recommendation of one of Jackie's coworkers. He really loved the place. Over the course of the next few months, we started to set up our trip.
