Last night at Lift, they had actual karaoke, which they called the "Asian-American Idol" contest. I recommend you at least listen to
the first guy... If you don't listen to the whole thing, here are some highlights. The judges were funny:
- "You have a lot of guts... for going first. You have a lot of attitude, but I want you to work on your... tone? and your beat? But you had good crowd control and I liked how you moved around the stage."
"You were on key, which I really appreciate."
"First of all, I liked your outfit, and I liked how you were closing your eyes."
"I agree with her -- I liked your pants, and you had a lot of emotion."
"You looked like you were in pain!"
In other news, I thought you might get a kick out of seeing our Wall of Shame: the home of lost-and-unclaimed photo IDs. I started taping them to the wall a few months ago, and it seems like it grows by one or two each week.
I don't know what's going on with that one at the upper left corner: maybe it was just the angle, or maybe they've started using some magic new non-photographable coating on licenses, but it came out solid white in all the photos I took! The hologram on the bottom middle one is pretty funky too...
