    Re: Hacker Karaoke

    as far as dropping the F-bomb there are four places (one being the dive bar) where you can and it's all good, and some of those folks will have too drunk to fuck by the dead kennedys. Im getting psyched about rocking karaoke at defcon, again for those who have means of contacting me, rape it (my contacts I mean, not the poor little puppy with Jif you sick bastards) :)

    PLACES NOT TO GO:

    The Imperial Palace

    I'm out here for a trade show. I love karaoke, and I knew they had it. I've gone before and it was okay.

    I get up and do my first song so well that the bartender upgrades my drink for free. Awesome. "You did a good job" yeah thanks.

    I get up and do my second song: Radiohead / Creep. The lyrics presented are for the radio edit. I sing the album version, which includes the word "fucking" three times throughout the song. The first time I say it the DJ "corrects me" whoa dude you're singing the "wrong" words. Ok, whatever.

    The second time he threatens to cut me off if I do it again. As I try not to be a dick in general, I comply. Whatever. Apparently it's casino policy not to let people sing the word "fuck" in karaoke songs. So my response is: I'm never going back to the Imperial Palace ever again. (Also: WTF? They're a Japanese themed casino that doesn't have a sushi restaurant? WTF is wrong with them? They suck balls)

    But I'm through with that place. I want to go somewhere I can sing TOO DRUNK TO FUCK and they don't give a shit. Which, in my experience, has been every single karaoke bar I've ever been to ever, except the Imperial Palace. This is the only time in the 5 billion times I've done karaoke I have ever been told not to sing the word "fuck" in a song. WTF is wrong with that place?

    Delchi took me to Dive Bar... that place rules, although I think they may only do karaoke on mondays which wouldn't work out so well. But at least I could sing the word "fuck" there and no one would give a shit.

    Re: Hacker Karaoke

    Being that Im a native to the vegas valley, and a bit of a karaoke whore myself, Im gfamiliar with a wide array of places for such fun karaoke actionz, I would like to put on a formal karaokecon, but it seems that bascule came up with the idea sooner. There were a few defcon folk in town, and we rocked it like a tidal wave and had a lot of fun. Not really a contest but definately lots of fun and lulz to be had. If you have a wayf of contacting me (IRC, twitter suckspace etc) lemme know what you think. I also know where they have decent drink specials for those who wont get up and rock unless they have had some liquid courage.

    Can someone who went last year opine as to where you went and whether it ruled/sucked/etc
    If you're referring to the bunch that went on Sunday night, we went to this place called Ellis Island.

    http://www.ellisislandcasino.com/

    It's dark and crowded, but we went after the Hofbrauhaus, so it was an absolute blast. It's a little blurry, but I seem to recall a pretty decent selection of songs. I didn't buy my own drinks, so I can't speak to the bar's service or cost. The most important part is that they do it every night.
