Dtoid NY Karaoke Night and The Invention of the Jeff Goldblum Machine

First off, I would like to thank Cactar Crush for taking time out of her schedule to help put this blog together. But, before we begin, I want to share something with you, the karaoke place that we went to had this song in its library.

You know the saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? While they might not be able to fix your toilet, Dtoid NY’s most recent karaoke night at Gagopa Karaoke in Manhattan proved once again to be a rousing success! On August 21, 2009 community members from as far away as Tennessee, and as close as several blocks uptown came together to have their moment (or seven) in the spotlight, to meet new friends and to learn really awkward dance moves from robotic Korean CGI tweens.

While the NARP was initiated for Joe Burling's much-anticipated visit, he was unfortunately held captive by his job for the weekend. However, other special guests did more than just fill in for his absence: Riser Glen and Asian Joe (aka The Incredible Edible Egg) buzzed right in and did not miss a beat, literally. Such attendance and more importantly, the fact that 30 people came out for the event even though they had never heard of the site speaks highly of Dtoid NY’s ability to foster a close-knit community while also encouraging other Dtoid and non-Dtoid friends to join in on the fun.

Dtoid NY is celebrated for its singing prowess, it was no surprise that many rounds resulted in with scores of 95% or higher. But its not just the rewards that made this night particularly memorable: highlight performances included a group sing of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” by PG/Keener/CasualWeaponry/Samit/ANOOB, N’Snyc’s “Bye, Bye, Bye” (Peter/Chelsea), “Forget about Dre”(Matt, etc.), and “Under the Sea” provided more reasons to drink as throats grew hoarse and more guests filled Room 4 with off-key chorus support!

. . . and with the shake of the last tambourine, our three-hour karaoke night ended far too soon. However, should a similar combination of booze, shirtless showboating and good spirits find its way back into NY for more karaoke carnage, make sure you clear your schedule: you don’t want to miss a chance to party with the Dtoid NY!

Also, Jeff Goldblum machine.
