Singing about five overbearing and overemotional humans…

February 6, 2014, 11:34 PM

So Tuesday night was fun.  I got together with my friend Melissa, and we hung out for a few hours.  We did some computer and phone maintenance over at my house, and then headed out for dinner.  We went to The Potomac Grill, which is located in Talbott Center on Rockville Pike.

For those not familiar, The Potomac Grill hosts Blinkie’s Karaoke, which is run by my friends Ken and Luisa.  I’ve done fill-in work as the engineer for Blinkie’s Karaoke from time to time, but this was my first time going solely as a participant.  Melissa didn’t sing, but I did.  I sang a karaoke version of the theme to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.  Those of you who are familiar with what I’ve talked about know that I’m a bit of a Power Rangers geek (I got into it in high school).  This was a new addition to the catalog, and so I premiered it.  And to top things off, Melissa filmed my performance:

Not too shabby, if you ask me.  I have no idea who the woman was that joined me while I was singing, though.  She was part of a group from Indiana that was visiting DC.  I think I do need to work on my performance a little bit.  First of all, if I had thought about it, I would have worn my Blue Ranger shirt.  Second, while the singing was good enough, I need to choreograph things a little bit better.  I did an “It’s morphin’ time!” and tried to do the whole morph pose, but for the most part, I was kind of swaying side to side and playing with my shirt with my non-microphone hand.  I could definitely do better when it comes to how I perform.  I need to think about this a bit.

And of course, if you can think of something that I could do to make a better performance for this song, leave a comment below.
