My New Karaoke Partner

I am mildly obsessed with karaoke. The fugs fake backgrounds, the bad backup vocals, the words with the bouncing balls—all of it makes me giddy. This dude is really embracing the true spirit of karaoke with his rendition of “This Is How We Do It.” And I’ve decided I want to do it with him … karaoke, I mean. Perhaps a duet? “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley or maybe “Islands in the Stream,” the Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers version? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Singer Wins Big — One-Million-Dumplings Big

How we wish we could be Edward Pimentel. He’s a lucky winner of the World Karaoke Championships, and the proud recipient of its one million dumpling prize. Yes, dumplings. It seems Pimentel wasn’t the overall winner, but the audience fave — and that entitles him to one million delicious steamed or fried dumplings. They aren’t just being dropped on his doorstep; he’s received a voucher for the million tiny parcels of goodness. That means that even if he were somehow able to choke down 100 dumplings a day, he’d have enough dumplings to last him 27 years

May we suggest some alternative uses for those dumplings? Use them to insulate your house. Use them for skeet practice. Fashion a farm’s worth of inanimate dumpling animals. Or you know, feed an entire city’s worth of people. Your call! [BBC News] Keep reading »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Feels Like A Natural Woman


Yesterday, I posted the most lady empowering songs of all time, aka “The Top 10 Songs That Pump Us Ladies Up.” But give it a day, girl, and there’ll be a new contender. Super babe Joseph Gordon-Levitt just covered Aretha Franklin’s “Natural Woman.” Oh Joseph Gordon-Levitt, what you’ve done to me makes me feel so good inside! [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Single Ladies, Rejoice! This Guy Wants to Make Sweet Music With You!

Ladies, this karaoke king is looking for love, and he’s not afraid to show it — or his chest. Sam, 45, from Sacramento, Calif., is “always trying to break new ground in karaoke,” and enjoys pop and rock — but absolutely NO COUNTRY, OK? This karaoke addict has a penchant for lo-fi video graphics and just wants a Tammi Terrell to go with his Marvin Gaye — or a Cher to his Sonny, if you will. Won’t you make him happy? Keep reading »

Jude Law’s Hidden Talent: Karaoke Star


Jude Law is so freaking hot I’d watch him do just about everything. Yes, even karaoke. Jude starts singing the Chuck Berry classic “Johnny B Goode” about 44 seconds in — a little tone deaf, but in a hot way. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Tuesday Night Is Karaoke Porn Night At Sardo’s

Bar owners often try to come up with inventive ideas to fill bar stools and sell bevs, but I think Sardo’s Grill & Lounge, a dive karaoke bar in Los Angeles, should win an award for creativity. They’ve come up with “Porn Star Tuesdays,” a night for the porn industry’s best and brightest to get together and sing some karaoke, schmooze it up, and talk new projects. With clothes on, of course. The owner of Sardo’s says the night wasn’t really his idea—it began accidentally in 2003, when some peeps dropped in after a long, hard day on the set. Six years later, Sardo’s porn karaoke night is as virile as ever. So what’s an average night like? Keep reading »

Woman Jumped For Crappy Karaoke Singing

I have listened to some pretty bad karaoke performances in my lifetime. Some have left me feeling disappointed; others have inspired me to stuff a napkin in my ear to dull the sound, but never have I felt like inflicting bodily harm on the performer. Apparently, that isn’t the case for everyone. A 25-year-old Connecticut woman was jumped and beaten by six ladies because they didn’t like the way she sang a Spanish song at karaoke night at Bobby Valentine’s Sports Gallery Cafe in Stamford. The feral women knocked the singer down, punched her, and pulled her hair, leaving her with multiple bruises and a chipped tooth. The women—all under the legal drinking age, natch—were arraigned on assault charges. C’mon gals, you’re supposed to throw tomatoes at bad performers, not fists! Or, better yet, you could always just—I dunno—leave the bar? [NY Post] Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: Cave Men, Private Rooms, And Smirting

  • Analysis of those painted caves in France suggests that the Upper Paleolithic people liked to sing — the paintings are located in the areas of the caves where singing, humming, and music would sound best. [LifeScience]
  • China’s government is cracking down on “entertainment venues,” including karaoke bars and discos, and new rules say that windows must be installed on private rooms so there’s no funny business and the staff must dress modestly and “not be too exposing.” [Reuters]
  • England’s smoking ban has assisted people in flirting (by way of the new “smirting” phenomena — that’s smoking and flirting combined), but hurt dry cleaners. [BBC]
