Let's go oooooooout tonight!

So prox 276 million yearz ago, I posted a song request for all you bloggy hoz to tell me what tunez you'd like to see me perform [read as: potentially die to] while doing mah car karaoke. I got a bunch of responses and since the weather is finally getting slightly decent enough for me to want to be outside, I decided to get my dope-azz into gear and get to fulfilling some of your requestz.

This first song is being performed butchered @ the request of Mr. Polt. It's from that broadway show that everyone was obsessed wiff in high school that kind of lost its magic after hearing the soundtrack a thousand times. Yes, I am talking about everyone's favo theater melodrama, Rent. And since I'm a prick, I decided to do the movie version of this song, recorded by Rosario Dawson. Yay! I lurrrve when actresses sing [see: Amanda Bynes, Gerard Butler & Helena Bonham Carter]!

I hope you enjoy dis, folkz. If you decided to kill urself cuz my vocals are just too torturous angelic, please don't include mah name in your suicide note...I've got enough drama goin' on en mi vida @ the moment. Tanx!

"Out Tonight" - Daphne Rubin-Vega
Rosario Dawson

You have inspired me to try this myself. Although I don't think I could be as talented at you and drive and tape a video at the same time.

(If the end of my video shows me wrapped around a stop sign, I WILL win the Academy Award.

You are "too funny for color TV!"

Laurie said...

OMG am I first commenter?? You have such a fan base ....

Nice Rent .....ummm but Joshy I wish you were here! Am at Nashville Blissdom thing. That's fine but GUESS WHO I'M SHARING HOTEL WITH??????????

MY MORTAL ENEMY!!!!!!!!! (wish I could "cap" CAPS cuz if there was ever a time for capped-CAPS ......THIS IS IT!

SARAH PALIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ewwwwwwwww....I can't stand it.

It's one of those stupid-ass tea party things here the same time as the bloggers conference.

The potential blogger material is so delicious I can hardly stand it--just this: had drinks next to person w/ Scott Brown sweatshirt on and (get this) giant Sarah Palin poster on a stick leaning on their table!!!!!!!! omg

Will post surripticious (sp? I know but am too lazy to look up) photos I took but am warning, am terrible photographer.

Uck. I can hardly stand it. Can't wait to get into Nashville and cleanse myself with bad-ass back alley music.

Great Rent Sweetie.

Laurie said...

I knew it ....too slow on this borrowed laptop!

Word verification: unditie

Kinda cute?

Justin said...

Damn! Missed first commenter status.

Missed SECOND commenter status! Despite Laurie, however, I did NOT miss 3rd commenter status.

Laurie, you do have my sympathies that you are with the Palin. *ugh*

Josherz, you are just friggin hilarious and friggin adorable. :-)

M. Nicodemus said...

Great jerb! I hadn't heard the movie version, but I was playing the original soundtrack all last week (reliving my "just graduated from college" days.) Whats next? Something from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"? :)

Tam said...

I kind of like the sun effect because I imagine if I were ever famous and singing on stage (like you will be someday) that's what it would look like with the big spotlights shining in your face and the sea of screaming fan-girls and boys would be nothing but a writhing mass of darkness screaming your name (sort of like a pit of vampires or demons or kittens).

Great job but I don't think I've ever heard that song and yet Polt picked it. Curious and curiouser.

Tam said...

Laurie: A friend of mine is stuck in Nashville but she's not there for bloggers or tea parties. Her flights have been cancelled and she can't get home. If you hear mad screaming from somewhere it might be her.

Ryan said...

The sun reminds me of a strobe light.

Word verification: mingr.

You are no minger.

Justin said...

The artistic sunlight flarez are one of the best parts!!!!!

Everybody I have shown this to has lerrrved it! My friend Daniel (@drbach98) had this to say:

"LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry just finishing Josh's rendition of "Take Me Out"
I love his musical flourishes at the end too"

I've watched it several times now, but I'm still not 100% sure -- are you saying "No really, don't" at the end? :-)

that's J-O-S-H said...

MadTexter: You are the first person ever to say that they couldn't be "as talented as me." Stop lying, liar!!!

Laurie: Ew! Try not to let her assy doucheness rub off on you! Try and trip her if you get the chance!

Justerz: I am quite impressed wiff you. You're usually within the first 5 peepz that comment! If I had commenter awards to give out (which I don't), I'd consider giving one to you!

M. Nico: Sadly I don't have the um...wardrobe [read as: self-confidence] for that show.

Tam: My dream death is to hurl mahself into a crowd of fanatical fans (that chose to listen to me at their own discretion) and be consequentially ripped into itty bitty Reeses pieces by their psychotic clawz.

Ryan: I wish I could turn mah coche into a discotech [feat. strobe light, nauseating fog machine & terrible singing courtesy of myself].

Ryan said...

At first, I thought you said coochie rather than coche. I found the idea of turning a coochie into a discotech with strobe lights and disco balls very amusing.

Polt said...

YAY! I get the first requested vid! And a special dedication in the vid itself! How special do I feel?

Sassy josh, I was singing along with you and let me inform you that you got MUCH closer to the high note than i ever could hope to without having my balls in a vice.

The sunlight reminded me of flashes of paparazzi (not feat. Lady GaGa...this time) cameras as they take your picture! Something you'll have to get used to in the future, I'm sure.

Great jerb, sweetie! Just make sure you don't record any whilst driving in this weekend's Snowpocalypse!


David said...

My Josherz brings all the boys to the yard.

And then I chase them away with a large stick.

Polt said...

David: Oooooh, so THAT'S why the Sassy One is all about you, you're big stick? :)


David said...

I'm a big stick? Well, I am thin.

Watch your punctuation, Uncle Polt.

Chris D. said...

Nice job! The out of sync audio actually reminded me of those old re-dubbed martial arts movies. ;)

I think you and David should do a duet some time. I think that would be cute. :)

john said...

Oh my GOD! "Why so angry, cholo?" made me totally snort!

Point of No Return?!
YAY! Patrick Wilson!

Jake said...

Hahah I give you mad props for doing this.
