I’ve recently gotten involved in 20-something Bloggers and discovered a lot of awesome blogs through it. (More on that in an upcoming post!) I also recently discovered the Karaoke Ring of Death, which some fellow 20sb members started last year. Basically, you record yourself singing karaoke to a song that fits the theme of the month. Someone else in KROD will post your video; you’ll post a different person’s.
This month, the theme is “Songs From Soundtracks,” and I have the privilege of hosting Erin of The Post-Modern Talko, a super-cool American living in Paris. Doing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air rap! Not only that, but there’s a bonus appearance by recent expat Sweeney, whose blog Sweeney Says was already one of my 20sb favorites. And another friend of Erin’s whose name I don’t know, but apparently she’s Canadian.
Here’s Erin’s intro:
Yeah Boston! What up, it’s yer girl, Erin fromThe Post Modern Talko and I’m reporting to you live from France where I’ve been living for a little less than a year.
I was so excited to end up on Strug’s blog because I used to live by Davis Square myself back when I was a catholic school girl at North Cambridge Catholic and have very fond memories of the Bean.
But I’m out in Paris now, partying and carrying on. If that’s your bag than my blog is the right new read for you.
Normally I fly solo on my KROD missions but Sweeney fromSweeney Says has just moved to Paris too and we’ve been getting together to party now and then. Anyway, someone told me once that you’re not a real American unless you know the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song and nothing will make you more defensive of your country then leaving it. Trust and believe.
Ok so enjoy the show and check out the other participants. Don’t forget to Show Jes fromJes Gettin Started some love over on my page. The Master list will be up soon. OH and in case you were curious drague is french slag equivalent of hitting on someone. Hope to see more of you. Hope you like what you see.
As for me, well, this is my first time participating in KROD, and I have nowhere to go but up. My video is super-awkward. I’m nervous, I sound awful, I forget some of the words and come in at the wrong places, and I am also STONE COLD SOBER. What happened was that on Sunday I realized that if I wanted to get my twelve-mile run (longest run on the half-marathon training schedule) in and also watch the Emmys that night, I had to get the video done right away. And sadly, you can’t really drink when you’re about to run twelve miles. Well, you can, but the ensuing run would not be fun. Anyway, my video is up on another very cool blog, Kandace’s One Red Wall.
Oh, and Kandace, Alexandra of The Tsaritsa Sez, and Jes of Jes Getting Started organized this month. Thanks, guys!
