We are sucking on your barley mints you gave me for my birthday and enjoying the karaoke discs. They are delicious.
The mints, I mean.
Although the discs are delicious as well.
Was I not supposed to eat them?
This video features a tomboy who both falls for and is rescued by her best friend's boyfriend. The boyfriend drives a Lexus mini van. She's from the wrong side of the tracks, and as the video continues the narrative progresses as a montage of her becoming girlier.
When they smash a bottle on the male love interest's head, it makes a loud crash, which is weird for a song. Also weird: the girl is wearing a baseball hat that merely says "80s."
Such a tragic ending.
Cambodia is not particularly big on the happily ever after videos.
Joe claims that the "Oh! My Friend" song/video we just watched was really about one of them trying to get train fare from the other.
In this song, we can definitely hear an electric accordion, or maybe it's a keyboard made to sound like an accordion. Unfortunately there is no accordion in this video, just a lady singing in a sack dress missing one shoulder. The dress is missing a shoulder, not the lady, although that would be much more interesting if the lady was missing a shoulder. And she's standing between 2 trees. Not a lot of plotline.
I should mention that each video ends with some text. We speculate that instead of being the credits typically seen at the end of karaoke videos that they're proverbs of some sort, like, "Always stand by your friends if they have their hair combed forword."
This next video shows a lady in different outfits, sometimes in a t-shirt with a skull on it. And sometimes she's in front of some mystical stone structure that has crazy clouds moving in fast forward above her, like an 80s video. Her mouth is slightly slanted to the right and we speculated that maybe she had a stroke or has Bells palsey.
On the box to this DVD there's a picture of a chicken and it says "Master Grill." Was this disc purchased at a Cambodian fried chicken restaurant? Also, in the video presently on, the woman singing is in front of what looks like a rocking band, but then there's also a keyboard that is clearly not in the music playing. This song sounds like "Masterplan" by Oasis. Do they sell Oasis discs at a Cambodian fried chicken fast food chain?
Also, this woman's jeans are only stonewashed in the front, as if they are chaps. Who wears stonewashed chaps?!
Joe speculated that the maxim at the end of the last video was "We are available for parties and bar mitzvahs."
In the current video, a man walks through a city. Literally, like he's taller than the buidlings.
In another scene he is singing in front of drums, but nobody is actually playing the drums. Maybe he's a one man band and he can only do one thing at a time?
Joe just went upstairs for a second to put on pajamas. I said, "Do you want me to pause it?"
He answered definitively and loudly, "NO!"
OH MY GOD!!! They have a blooper reel.
What you don't know if that they used a green screen for parts of the videos.
Did you eat at the Master Grill? Because their logo is on the DVD we just watched from you (see attached).
Joe pointed out that they deliver. How late do you think they'll go? I'm starving. And I need some karaoke. I know just the place.
Also, we are excited by the prospect of the company that made the disc (M Production) we just watched can provide treasure hunts: http://mproduction168.com/services
Also, they stated on their website that they are looking for the "Newface in whole world" Does that come with the chicken do you think?
Also, I very much like their operating philosophy as stated on their web site:
Individuals will enjoy a gradually increasing amount of discretionary time, both on and off the job. This is an irony, as most will perceive that they have less time to do the things they want.
Could I have said it better?
No, I think not.
