tonight asking me about karaoke then ever before. I'm
starting to turn a bit pissy, but I sure do try to be
polite. Even when I explain to people what it
is...they don't get it. But I politely say that
karaoke starts at 10 PM, and they go their merry way.
Well as I start to sing, Jess hands me a note
that says the party in front are all from
THE WILLIAM MORRIS AGENCY. Well
GIDDY-GODAMN-UP, it's about time I have a shot to
perform for people that may be able to help me. They
seemed into it, although I know they were there
for karaoke. But, it still went well. Of course of
ALL the nights my computer came unplugged in the
middle of a song and the bottom left TV was out.
I could've stopped the show, but no one even knew
what the hell I was doing let alone that the bottom
TV was out. So they got to see the very first
performance of 3TVS. In the middle of a song, one of
the agents gets up and hands me a card with personal
writing on it. How awesome is that. Not just his card,
but he took the time to either write a personal phone
number or something. I couldn't tell. So the rest
of the show went pretty well. No one could hear, as
well as me, but the manager again told me I was
too loud. I've given up on that. Life set goes great,
the William Morris people dug J-Dog, and as I finished
Abbey Road, I could not WAIT to read that card.
"World-Wide Kara-FUCKIN'-oke" (I added the fuckin) was
the writing on the William Morris Agency card. It
NEVER fails. Karaoke will absolutely haunt me. I
was obviously a bit confused...did they THINK I
was karaoke? This is the GODDAMN William Morris
Agency! They can't be that stupid. So I go up and
talk to the guy and he tells me all about the new
exciting division of karaoke completely focused on
karaoke because it's so HUGE now. They even have
a movie coming out with Gwyneth Patrow "DUETS"...about
you guessed it: Karaoke. Guys, I am shitting
myself right now. I've driven 2500 miles across the
country to HOLLYWOOD.
AND ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS KARAOKE.
One of the William Morris guys asked me: "But, Why
aren't you doing karaoke?" "Uhm, I'm trying to do
something different" Looked completely confused as if
to say..."well jesus all this set-up...and you're not
I'M LOSING MY MIND.
Karaoke is now my "NEWMAN". Everywhere I turn it
screws me. Completely. And even when I give in. I
drive to the damn FARMER'S MARKET an hour
away...and then it's CANCELLED. NEWMAN! Or I play for
the damn Barney's crowd and they literaly scream at me
to get off so karaoke can start....NEWMAN! Or the
DAMN WILLIAM MORRIS AGENCY has a
THE LORD SHINES UPON ME! An agent
gives me a card, I'm happy.
IT'S FOR THE FREAKIN KARA-NEWMAN-OKE
division. NEWMAN. I now picture the fat guy from
seinfeld every time the word karaoke is spoken. The
irony just drips from the situation. I guarantee Jess
and I will get tickets to the Hollywood premiere
of DUETS too... So life continues...
