Why in the world would anyone take the time
to post so many damn pictures of people just singing karaoke-month-after
month after month?
Pretty good question.
To be honest, I started with these pictures
as a kind of self-validation that what I was doing with my life was
actually worth it... it seemed like all of the nights were kind of
blurring together, and it made it hard to remember the individual moments
and people, which are, of course what really makes these karaoke nights
But after a while the pictures and videos
really became to be more than that; they are a time capsule of good
times shared, a sort of crazy captain's log of our time together. It
is easy to think that these times will last forever, that our nights
out are just fun times that don't mean anything, but particularly in
August each year, we are reminded just how fleeting all the good times
Graduations, Birthdays, people getting "real"
jobs and leaving town. Just getting a day job that means you can't
come out on your favorite night anymore. Even weddings, as joyous as
they are, signify great change - and can create a sort of ripple effect
thru the pond of our intertwined lives.
Hopefully these pics can help make some
of these good times stick in the subconscious just a little bit, and
perhaps a couple of 'em will even become that most precious of long-term
commodities - memories of truly good times shared.
So get out whenever you can. Dance like
no one is watching, sing like the world is listening, and love and
laugh like there is no tomorrow.
Life is what you make it, and you all are
choosing to make it FUN, and are sharing that with some like minded
people. I think the world is much better with karaoke in it.
I dare anyone who looks at these pics to
