So I've mentioned before that my Uncle Wayne has a karaoke business. I've gotten into the occasional habit of going to the little bar/restaraunt where he's working just to listen to the performers.

I will not be performing myself. No thanks.

What I've noticed is that all karaoke performers fall into one of these categories:

The Drunk
Probably the most common karaoke singer out there. These people are fun to be around and fun to listen to - in moderation.
The Professional
These people generally have one or two songs that they sing very well, and they'll sing the same song(s) over and over every time their turn comes up. I just get sick of them.
The Mouse
These people, generally women, are posessed of a wonderful singing voice, yet they don't seem to know it. They'll hide in the back of the room while they sing, and they also have a problem with the music drowning them out at times.
The Star
People that can flat-out sing, and know it. They'll sing anything, and sing the hell out of it.
The Delusional
These people think they're stars, but they're actually drunks. They'll sing the hell out of any song you put in front of them, but you wish they wouldn't. These people all get an "A" for effort though.
The Decent
The second most common karaoke singer. They sing because it's fun for them (not because they're drunk) and they're not too bad.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
