Sing Shot


How could I possibly not know about this? This is, without a doubt, the coolest thing I've stumbled upon on the web in a long time.

While I was Google-ing "Al Stewart karaoke," I came up with the hit for Singshot. You can record your own versions of songs and there are contests and voting and it's like karaoke night right on your desktop.

I sang my own version of "Yesterday" which was horrendous, but, the beauty of karaoke is that, every version I listened to was at least as awful as mine. There are also some very good singers out there.

Man, I need to open me up a karaoke/sushi bar. Yeah, that's the ticket.

If you change sushi to boudin, I'm there.

Sophmom said...

I would like to work at your karaoke bar, please, whether it's boudin or sushi. Thanks. :)

Sophmom said...

...That is, if I don't get the nanny job with Brangelina. ;)

"bwcoz"

Pokerboss - I don't see shy I couldn't serve boudin sushi.

Sophmom (parts 1 and 2) - Why don't we open our boudin/sushi/karaoke bar in the French Quarter and we could work for Brad and Angie, too?

Oh yeah, boudin!!!! Curses!! Now I'm craving some... LOL

I never could get into the karaoke thing though, bad things happen when I sing hehe

Laurie said...

Se7en - I like watching others do the karaoke, good or bad.

My computer speakers quit working. What is it trying to tell me?

Leslie said...

Laurie, this is the coolest thing EVER! You rock! I am so signing up. And so is Grimm, whether he likes it or not.

Laurie said...

Laura - Hahahahaha! Don't let the bastards get you down. Buy more speakers. Buy some monster speakers!!

Leslie - Please, please, please let me know if you guys make any recordings. As soon as I buy a new microphone, I'll post a truly horrible rendition of something on this site. I want to hear everybody singggggg!!!!!!!!

pokerboss said...

Well, she's heard me sing and she's still game. Go for it, people!

Susan in St. Paul said...

Laurie- if you add tapas and bubble tea to the sushi and boudin, I'm in!

pokerboss said...

Okay, now I'm mad. I know SingShot is in beta, but it went all buggy on me. If it happens to you, check out www.ksolo.com. It's a similar site, but they have songs by America!

laura1814 said...

Got my speakers working. Those recordings are terrible!! And they've kept me up until 1 in the morning!

Grimm said...

You do realise that life as I know it has been forcibly changed by my wife after reading this post.

I hold you fully responsible.

Larry Jones said...

I think I speak for the group when I say we'd love for you to post your version of "Yesterday" here.

Laurie said...

Pokerboss - Yes, I demand links.

Susan - Yes! It shall be international!!!

Laurie's International Karaoke Sushi Boudin Tapas Bar...y'all come back now, hear?

Pokerboss - I'll check it out.

Laura - Sort of like a train wreck, isn't it? But, by God, they're singing their little hearts out.

Grimm - Glad I could enrich your lives. That's what you meant, right?

Larry - Actully, Yesterday was pretty rough. I'm going for 99 Red Balloons as soon as I buy a new microphone. I promise to post it.

I don't need the karaoke; just slip me the sushi. Lots of it.

laura1814 said...

You can have my sushi.

Yes, they're sincere!

I'm dying to know: are there any karaoke clubs in Beaumont?

Laurie said...

Old Horsetail - Will do!

Laura - No karaoke bars. Some clubs have a karaoke night but it's always on some odd weeknight. I'm tell you, I could make a million!
