Karaoke is Japenese for The End Of Civilization As We Know It

Posted By on Mon, Jan 26, 2009 at 11:12 AM

Just filled out your "Best of Music" survey. As a musician (i.e. someone who plays a real instrument and sings with other real people playing real instruments), I was appalled to see a category for Best Karaoke Host. That is akin to having a Winter Olympic event on a ski hill for tobogganing. Sure, toboggining can be fun, but it's not a real sport. Apparently, some people find off-key singers and terrible songs at Karaoke venues amusing as well. But Karaoke is NOT music and has no business being in this poll. And everyone knows Karaoke hosts are the devil incarnate, sent to further dumb down popular culture (if that's even possible; it can't get much dumber).
