Why can't karaoke joints feature some cooler songs?

6:00 PM -- I think I might like to do Roxy Music's In Every Dream Home a Heartache as part of my next karaoke binge (not yet recognized as a medical condition, BTW). If I can find a place that's cool enough to actually have the track, that is.

I believe I may even be able to do the song more justice than Roxy Music did, good as their version is. After all, a pean of love and obsession for a blow-up doll will sound much more convincing coming from the mouth of a fat, balding thirtysomething than it ever did when Bryan Ferry sung it.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
