As you know, Saturday was my birthday. I had a bigass karaoke birthday party at the cool Boardwalk 11, and among the numerous guests were a few notable Scribospherians (though too many others were sadly absent). Thanks to all of you who did make it out, and you others were definitely missed! So that in itself ties it to the Scribosphere. Beyond that, however, life experience is such a part of writing, and with each passing year, I (presumably) gain more of it.
Lastly, however, I have a mini movie for y'all. It was shot by the rather-fun-herself Shawna (repeated Scribosphere connection), and is of me rocking out on a rendition of my Garden State homeboys Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive." Indeed, I have seen a million faces, and I've rocked them all.
What else? Oh, some of my improvisatory asides you might not have been able to hear:
The karaoke screen at the beginning showed a picture of some guy sitting on horseback atop a cliff. So I mentioned that I loved that picture, and that it made me "feel like more of a man." :-) I also commented on the "spooky" sounding guitar towards the beginning. And of course there was the "beer break" that brought a laugh from Shawna.
By the way, as an added bit of film connection, I intend to post soon about sites like YouTube (where the vid is posted), and how viral vids are changing things for us all. So if any of you have significant experiences, I'd love to hear about them!
Oh, and thanks to both Shawna and Kristen for singing. Chris -- we'll have to get you up there next time!
