Halloween 2014 (new pictures)
« on: May 07, 2014, 02:18:17 AM »
New Halloween 2014 pictures are in the first reply.
Halloween 2013 and background story stay in the original post.


I know I'm a little late but I still wanted to post the most recent Parker fun pics I have.

One of the highlights of my voluntary work at a youth center is our annual Halloween (and sometimes Carnival) Karaoke night. Halloween 2013 marked the tenth time I attempted to enhance our Karaoke MIDI song collection by adding real guitar sound and real (backup) vocals (sometimes to help derailed singers back on track). Aside from a few classics that are always requested it's four to eight hours (depending on the number of guests and singers) of pure chaos and improvisation, playing and singing whatever song someone dares to tackle. It's definitely something you can't really prepare for which is a big part of the fun for me, however exhausting and disillusioning it can be playing and singing stuff you haven't listened to in years or hardly know (or like), sometimes in random keys. You're bound to make a lot of mistakes and you have to deal with them on the way and just keep going. It's like being pushed onto a stage without much practice only knowing 10% of the setlist. For whatever strange reason I find it very rewarding and enjoy it immensely and I'm looking forward to the next Karaoke night every year.

As if bandana, shirt print, guitar, and shoes wasn't enough green I also got a green spot light which pretty much killed my Parker's candy lime green shine for almost every picture. The hue in fourth picture is closest to the real deal.

danjazzny: "matching green beard"

That was only the spot light, no extra color.

I understand that Nef. That was my weak attempt at humor.   :-[

My bad... I have been using different colors (orange, red, black) on my beard before. Makes for some interesting contrasts.
Wouldn't be much of a surprise to use some green someday. That's why I didn't get it. :D
