Hello, hello, hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers all over the world! Welcome to Pittsburgh’s #1 girlie magazine.
Well, I’m getting ready for karaoke tonight at Nico’s in Little Italy. I’ve already done one series of deep breathing and stretching exercises today and I’ll do another series before I leave for Nico’s. I’m doing laundry right now so that my all black karaoke uniform will be ready and I’ve been working on my stage presence (mannerisms and body language) while going over the songs in my mind and listening to them on YouTube to make sure I have the lyrics memorized; but no matter how strange this may sound, I don’t actually “sing” the songs until I get up to sing them at Nico’s. So, what the audience hears for the first time is what I hear for the first time, too. Oh, well, it works for me and it saves my voice. And I sing with power and breath control from the diaphragm. I don’t sound like an old man singing karaoke. Tonight when I take my shower before leaving for Nico’s, I’ll shave my face and my head.
But I digress…
My little girlie magazine belongs to the Mr. Skin/Naked News affiliate advertising network. I don’t share with you every video that I get from Mr. Skin because the site has a strange habit (I’m sure the people at Mr. Skin know what they’re doing) of ending some of its videos before they seem to be done; or of breaking my “sudden ending rule.” It’s like me publishing a flash fiction story by one of my contributors, but I cut off the last three paragraphs of a perfectly good story. But every once in a while I break my sudden ending rule because I think you will enjoy the video anyway.
So, here is one of the videos that breaks my own rule against showing videos that end suddenly.
This is Guy Hogan reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
Today in Pittsburgh there will be a mix of clouds and sunshine with a high around 58.
Hail to Pitt!
