This picture is about ten years old, but it still accurately depicts my karaoke style. Besides, how could I not use it?

As an addict to the arts of karaoke and inane goal-setting, I've set out to sing in excess of 300 karaoke songs in the year 2017. (I hit about 200 in '16.) And to keep it interesting, I've promised that for every song sung, I will donate $1 to The American Civil Liberties Union. Now I ask/invite you to join me by matching (or exceeding) my donation.
