I am a karaoke legend.
last night was (the annual???) karaoke night at Gorilla Bar, where everybody knows my name. There are two regulars named John (my friend John Palenski). He's John #2 and I'm Little John. There is no John #1.
Anyway even though it wasn't a competition, I think I came out on top. I certainly dominated all those other losers who couldn't even sing over the backing track.
I was pulling out all the stops: head banging, fist pumping; high fiving; using the crowd as a chorus; and finally just flat out having a natural sense for showmanship. At several points people from the crowd jumped up to join me. I take this as a good sign!
