Last night we attended a karaoke contest at Chipper Lanes in Fort Collins. The contest was touted as an international karaoke contest with live judges. The winner receives $4,000 and a recording session. The contest started last night and runs for several months with the winners of each session competing in a semi-final and eventually traveling to Florida to compete in the finals. 

A good friend from Denver is an avid karaoke singer with real singing talent so she decided to compete in this competition. Just for fun, I signed up as well. 

Turns out the entire competition is a sham. They claim to be judging on performance, accuracy and vocal ability, but the guy who won did an ear piercing version of Prince’s Kiss, and though the guy was highly entertaining in the way a drunk friend might be entertaining performing a Prince song, his vocal abilities were horrendous. In addition, we found out at the end of the competition the so-called “judges” were simply sponsors of the event. 

We had a lot of fun, but were disappointed to find out the contest was not serious; at least they didn’t charge us admission and several in our group won raffel prizes, so in the end, the outing was worth it.

Is it really 2008?

I have been negligent and that is exactly what they warn against in blogging. 

Quite frankly, I’m considering breaking this blog into three different blogs – a movie review site, restaurant review site and book review site. 

This whole blogging world is so intriguing for me as a writer and as a girl with a whole lot of opinions, but I also have 2 other jobs (3 technically) and so I really need to figure out how to make blogging generate some $$, otherwise I’m just not inspired to keep it up!

So for those of you who keep checking in, I do apologize about my negligence.  I have been busy reading, eating out and seeing movies, but haven’t given my two cents about any of it.

For the record, I think Atonement is WAY OVERRATED and I’m going to be super annoyed when it walks away with a dozen Oscars.
