Lolicat;2105589 said:I have a Joni Mitchell-inspired syndrome where I like to sit in my room playing a terribly untuned guitar and trying to sing badly along to a song I can't play to begin with.

Alright_Computer;2105863 said:This is exactly what my memory is. However, this was in public, so it was 100x worse. It was during an open mic night at a local coffee shop/music venue I used to go to a lot. I'm pretty sure the singer was banned from open-mic night after about 5 or so separate occasions.
Lolicat;2105886 said:My friend keeps asking me to accompany him to open mic, but I don't feel like doing all-too earnest covers of Pink Floyd with him. He takes Floyd seriously as all Hell, but refuses to acknowledge any other band post '85, and even before then it's only 'classic rock' that he enjoys.

Lolicat;2105987 said:I would gladly beat my friend to death with his guitar, he's a prententious... urgh.If I could sing I'd love Open Mic, because I'd do all sorts of great songs and be an 'Indie' superhero.
Alright_Computer;2106072 said:Rule #1 of open mic: You don't have to sing well to do open mic. If the audience is drunk enough it doesn't even matter anyway.
Lolicat;2106088 said:The drinks in the Student Union are expensive, and I know a lot of the crowd, plus those I don't know, I generally hate. Chances are, I'd be more drunk than the audience if I went up.
Lolicat;2105622 said:They sound nice, but oh my God I just realised how much I hate youtube.
Alright_Computer;2106103 said:Hm. In that case might I suggest a different talent? Perhaps juggling knives or various vaudeville acts?
Lolicat;2106133 said:I don't think I'm a performer, though perhaps a poetry reading? I was really tempted to put Daddy to music.Yes, now all I need is a willing female...@JukeBoxHero: No, just how everyone in the world has to put stuff up on some dumb website as if the others cared all that much. Those videos themselves weren't awful, but it reminded me of video blogs and the like.
