Help bring the DDP to San Francisco

Tom and Gary, perpetrators of the Decentralized Dance Party

These guys ROCK! and I have decided to back them! Let’s bring the Decentralized Dance Party to San Francisco!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/theddp/decentralized-dance-party-san-francisco-edition

This is a project that is dear to my heart, since I run a party called Car-E-Oke that also works via an FM transmitter. Here was my feeble attempt to promote my Car-E-Oke parties back in 2005 http://beyondkaraoke.us/car/.

Also check out the DDP Manifesto…Its cool!

Karaoke Cart in GG Park for Burning Man Newbie BBQ & Playlist 6.5.10

KJ Paul took the Karaoke Kart out to Golden Gate Park for the 2010 Burning Man Newbie BBQ. The BBQ officially went from 11am until 6pm with the karaoke starting at 4pm. The karaoke was a huge hit. People sang and danced. At one point there was a giant conga line (Thanks Sean Luna!). D.A. from the Burning Man Playa Restoration crew was a karaoke rock star once again and got the crowd going pretty much every time he got on the mic. People were dancing and singing along and the karaoke kept going until the Karaoke Karts battery died at 8:30!

There was one very troubling incident. I had forgotten my karaoke books and I allowed a few people to search my song database to find a song for themselves. Then one guy who I didn’t know jumped on the keyboard while I was singing. When I was done and walked over I noticed that the application order was changed and that my web browser was closed. I ask him WTF and he said he closed some applications to “save energy”. I was upset but did not realize the full extent of it until I got home. The ass had tampered with several applications and attempted to hack my server and then cleared the browser history so I would not be able to see what he did. I felt molested. If you recognize this person please let me know who this hacker guy is.

Car-e-oke test run

I set up the new Car-e-oke setup and gave it a little test spin. Ash Wednesday came over and drove while I queued up a few songs. We then drove to the 500 Club and parked across the street for a bit while luring a few people from the bar to come sing. There was a car parked across the street from us who were enjoying watching us…they I told them to tune in to 87.7, then they really rocked out.

Car-E-Oke is good to go. Get ready to rock out on a freeway near you. It is going to be a Car-E-Oke summer!

New York Times Wedding

Kestrin Pantera and Jonathan Charles Grubb celebrate their wedding with freinds and family at Jonathan’s sister’s urban garden oasis, Flora Grubb Gardens, in San Francisco, Calif., April 3, 2010.

Kestrin and Jonathan originally met when Kestrin pulled up with her car at Burning Man and saw KJPaul setting up his karaoke bicycle. They later founded the {RV}IP Lounge and many other fantastic karaoke happenings. KJPaul hosted karaoke in the back room and as per the norm, it was the last thing going at the party. People loved it. The wedding was covered by the New York Times. Here is the
New York Times article.
