Word of the week: Destinesia - Arriving at a location and then forgetting why you went there. Ex. I walked to the office and had an overwhelming sense of destinesia, so I wrote this blog entry.
Last Friday The New York Times posted an article about a Malaysian man who was shot for hogging the microphone at a karaoke bar.
"Karaoke rage is not unheard of in Asia. There have been several reported cases of singers being assaulted, shot or stabbed mid-performance, usually over how songs are sung.Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” has reportedly generated so many outbursts of hostility that some bars in the Philippines now do not offer it on the karaoke menu anymore. In Thailand this year, a gunman shot eight people dead after tiring of their endless renditions of a John Denver tune." (The John Denver Tune: Take Me Home Country Roads.)
With that in mind, here are some movies in which karaoke appears in a way that either pleases or confuses me or that I have never seen:
Eat Drink Man Woman
Lost in Translation
The Cable Guy
