Speak up, sonny!

Ears are shot to hell again. Yep, it was the first thursday of the month again last night. And oh, my, God, what a night it was. The bar was packed, there was an awesome vibe, the band started out with Rebel Yell and the place was roaring.

This was by far the best Live Hard Rock Karaoke night yet. Everyone gave it their best: I believe in a thing called love, The Pretender, No One Knows, Smoke On The Water, Ace of Spades, Livin' on a Prayer, the songs flew by. My colleague Ciska got the crowd jumping with Anouk's Girl, and then I had to do my thing. The intro rolled in, the drum started pounding and I sang... Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.... And for five whole minutes I was out of this world. What a rush. And then afterwards all those pats on the back from the crowd, the compliments, the thumbs up, that's the stuff that gets you higher than any illegal substance.

And now I'm at work, grinning from ear to ear, beeeeep pounding my skull, had 5 hours of sleep. It was so worth it.

Meh, I wish there was such a bar here in Apeldoorn!

(You should doe mee aan Holland's Got Talent next time!)

One of my colleagues who lives in Apeldoorn goes to the Irish Pub every tuesday night to have fun at the Quiz Night. Maybe something for you and Jeroen? ;)

And no, I'm not going to take part in any talent show. I don't feel the need to 'prove myself' to the jury, the watchers at home or anyone else. All I wanna do is have some fun, and I'm getting more of that in the karaoke bar than on any talentscouting TV show.

Oh I see.. I thought you were into the TV-shows thing, most probably because of the "Singing Bee" thing, so I didn't know you didn't care for the talent shows in particular :)

Keep it a hobby then!

And I never heard of the quiz night at the Irish pub (must be Finnegans?) But I might go check it out sometime! Thanks for the tip.

I've just been informed that it's the Curtis bar, every tuesday night at 20.15. Though they might skip a few weeks now because of football.

    Respect hoor, echt super! (Misschien is de nacht van de vluchteling iets voor je?)

    Grappig - ik had geen idee dat er ook whatsappende studentjes meededen, alleen serieuze renners.

    Best of luck with that. But best to man up and do it that risk losing more eyesight later. :/

    If you wanna go for a drink after that, lemme know.

    I hear ya! The reason why I haven't even considered getting laser surgery to correct my eyesight is that the thought of having someone messing with my eyes and me not being completely knocked out…

    It is a routine operation, but yeah, I understand the anxiety.
    The idea of people fucking around with my eyes, rgrjhrhajanklxk..
