What song(s) did you karaoke recentlly?

Hey karaoke fans.

Those of you who like to belt out a number here and there can feel free to drop a few titles that you've recently done.  You didn't have to necessarily do them well, it doesn't matter to me.  Tell me where you sang it if you like, and who went with you or if you were 3 sheets to the wind.

Some I did last night: Borderline by Madonna, You Got It by Roy Orbison, Don't Tell Me You Love Me by Night Ranger

AN ARCADE GAME OF YESTERYEAR YOU LOVED, AND WHY

Hey classic arcade fiends.

What we do here is pick one game at a time we loved at the old arcade (back in either the '70s, '80s or '90s; no less, no later) that we liked to play over and over again.  It didn't have to be your absolute favorite, it could be just one you really liked.  Maybe do a little backstory on where specifically you frequented to play this machine, what year, how old you were, how much allowance you pumped into it, yada yada.  What did you like about it most, do you own it today in some shape or form, etc.

I'll start:

MOUSETRAP C 1981 Exidy

My sister and I both loved this game.. strange concept though.  You play a mouse moving around a maze eating cheese and avoiding the cats.  After eating a dog bone (!) you can change into a dog (!!) and eat the cats (!!!).  A hawk attacks here and there that will kill either the mouse OR the dog (!!!!).  Told you it was strange!  But the music and sound effects REALLY drew me in.  I now have it emulated on my cpu.

CLASSIC REFEREE SCREW-UPS

Hey embittered sports fans.

Here is your chance to vent your anger towards all those referees that changed the course of a game by either looking the other way, swallowing their whistle, or calling a really lame foul/turnover/penalty.  It could be something that a team still overcame, or it could be a call/non-call that clearly determined the outcome of the game (don'tcha just HATE that!).  You see the coaches fly off their seats and let the ref/ump know under no uncertain terms that they are not happy with the call, and you want to join them.

What were the lamest calls/non-calls you can remember, from any sport?

DIRTY/SICK JOKE REPOSITORY

Hey gang.

All your sick and dirty jokes can be placed here... just mind the p's and q's please.  Believe it or not it is possible to tell the joke without the use of profanity.  Just use the (*)&^#$@!#? symbols or something similar after the first few letters or so. 

Fire away!

The Arcade Game Game

Yeah, this is a confusing one..

We'll play it just like a Game thread, where you take the last letter of the post (in this case, the name of an arcade game) and that will be the first letter of the next post (again, an arcade game). 

Example: (First Post): Frogger

Next Post: Rush 'N Attack

Next Post: Kangaroo

Easy, no?

Okay, let's start:

Asteroids

"EPIC" BIG BUDGET FILMS THAT JUST SUCKED HARD

Hey moviegoers.. remember how the newspaper ads and previews would tell us all about these epic movies that were coming soon to a theatre near us, and it starred (huge celebrity #1) and (huge celebrity #2) and (huge celebrity #3) and was based on the best-selling book by (famous author) and directed by (renowned director), and was the greatest sci-fi/romance/drama/war pic/western/etc. film ever produced?  Well, once it hit the theatres, and like mindless sheep or brainless chickens, we all flocked to see it... and it sucked much ass.

One such colossal letdown has got to be DUNE.  It was so expensive, and of course was based on the successful sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert.  And it was boring as hell.  I'm curious to see how much money they lost on that turkey.

What are your nominations, folks?

INSECTS/ANIMALS THAT SCARE THE CRAP OUTTA YOU

Hey guys.  I thought this might be neat for other folks to talk about because insects and animals don't scare me.  Heck, I get along with animals better than I do people.  Many insects really tick me off at their presence, because they are NOT ALLOWED in my house.  Ants and spiders make me mad.  It's funny; they hear me yell in anger when I see them, and they scurry for a hiding place.  They don't usually succeed.

What ones make you practically wet yourself, or scream like a little girlie?
