I’m writing this in my notebook as I sit at the bar in Armand’s in Little Italy. After a quick march from Oakland to Little Italy in the hot sun, the AC in Armand’s feels pretty good. The draft beer is delicious. I’ll transcribe this to my blog later.
But I digress.
Tomorrow the Old Soldier plans to be at Nico’s in Little Italy for Saturday night karaoke. Let us review how to turn your karaoke singing into performance art. I mean if you want to turn it into performance art. Most people don’t want to turn karaoke into performance art. They just want to sing karaoke.
How do you turn karaoke into performance art?
You don’t want to sing with your back to the audience. Actually, you want to face the audience at all times which often means that you have to know the lyrics of your song well enough that you don’t have to look at the monitor. You should also have a karaoke outfit, something that makes you stand out. Because performance art is not only an audio experience; it is also visual. This does not mean that you should dress like Prince or Lady Gaga. It does mean that you don’t want to look like everybody else. Nothing over the top. Just something a little different.
Finally, learn to do something that is unique to you. Something with the mike or some mannerism or little dance that no one else does. You should practice this until it becomes second nature.
Of course, if you can’t sing none of this matters. But if you can sing, everyone else will be doing karaoke. You will be doing performance art.
Hello, all my fans of erotic flash fiction who live all over the world! Welcome to my girlie magazine of sex as art and entertainment. Guy Hogan is my name and erotic flash fiction is my game.
I’m sitting at the bar looking out the window at sunny Liberty Avenue here in Little Italy, thinking deep thoughts about life, death, writing and publishing a different kind of online girlie magazine. You know it’s not easy coming up with content every day; but luckily I’m expecting another erotic flash fiction story from Alexa Night and I plan to do an interview of this talented writer of erotica later this month.
Keep reading that erotic flash fiction. There are over 700 posts on this site and I feature a different post on the front page every day so be sure to come back tomorrow. This is the Old Soldier reporting for the PittsburghFlashFiction, an online girlie magazine of sex as art and entertainment.
