Day 667 of 365 More.

So here’s something a little different. I took this picture today, but its actually representative of what I did on Friday. Today, I didn’t really do anything superinteresting. I shot the podcast with Stephen. worked on Hellcats, which will be up at midnight, and worked on cleaning my pool.

I wish I had done the pool a week ago. It’s been in the 90s here the last few days and it would have been really nice to jump in. But no dice. Another day or two of chemical balancing and it will be set though.

Anyway, nothing I felt like taking a picture of, so instead I thought I’d talk about one of my favorite activities. BARE-AOKE! I’ve mentioned it here before. It’s Karaoke, at a strip club! One of the best things ever. It’s just like Karaoke anywhere else, a bunch of drunken losers, standing on stage, belting out out of tune renditions of pop and rock songs, with no cohesive style between them, so even if someone is good, which they’re usually not, you’re left wondering why "My Way" was followed by "Baby Got Back". But, to make it more tolerable, at this club, there are naked ladies dancing around you while you sing. It’s the best thing ever. Even if you don’t like strip clubs. It’s just so ridiculous and surreal that you can’t help but love it. Plus the deejay, DJ Marty, is just awesome.

Friday they were celebrating one of my favorite strippers’, Pinky’s, birthday. So I ended up singing her favorite song of mine, Prince’s Darling Nikki to her while she danced for me. Actually everyone loves when I do Darling Nikki. It’s my best karaoke performance. I got a standing ovation, and won myself a couple free passes from the bartender/manager, just because she liked it.

So you know, if anyone wants to go sing in front of some strippers one of these Friday nights, I’m in.

    I’m totally with Nicole. I’d do the singing part. except I would probably be distracted by the nekkid girlies part. It does sound totally surreal and fantastic.

    @mickeysacks: well, I think that’s kinda the point. 🙂 If the girls like you, they come and grind up against you and try to distract you while you’re singing. I think one of the reasons they like me so much is that I never crack. I’m all professional like that you see.

    Are the dollars for the nekkid girls? Or was that loot that YOU took in?

    I should really check my comments more often, I should have gotten on AIM and talked to you guys!

    If you dance naked around me, I’ll dance naked around you! Haha!

    Wow. I didn’t know such a thing existed. My husband is usually adamantly against karaoke, but naked women might change his mind.

    @365bunnies: heh… it’s actually been voted the Best Karaoke in Pittsburgh by both our local entertainment newspaper and by AOL Cityguide (which completely neglected to mention the strippers, which is awesome)

    @disco~stu: hah… its not even all over the US. The Tennyson Lodge is the one and only place I know of that does it.
