If you guessed filthy dirrrty orgy like I did, you'd be dead wrong.
Seems like Chinese boys can be quite prudish when it comes to such delicate matters. Shy Asian blossoms, the lot of them. However they certainly didn't seem to have any qualms about thoroughly humiliating themselves by screaming their voices hoarse on the microphone in public.
Or at least that's what I used to term the dreaded bane of many, karaoke.
Since it was an impromptu farewell for Charming Calvin, I acquiesced with little demur, falling in with their enthusiastic plans - rather than follow my original instincts which was to run hysterically screaming as far as I could from the sleazy karaoke joint. After all Calvin's a typical Chinese communist indoctrinated fella - along with the Mao Red Book, they must have instilled the mantra to love karaoke.
Dang, why is he butchering my song?!
Over salty chips ( to get us all dead thirsty, clever these Red Box minxes! ), chicken wings and mountains of cream puffs ( my one weakness I admit ), we managed to make it through an entire repertoire of English and Mandarin songs from the terrifying 80s to the solemn 90s. Well my karaoke-phile friends managed to do so. I on the other hand butchered the whole lot by squealing inappropriately in unexpected intervals.
Of course with a bunch of fag wannabes in the midst, there were the typical musical showtunes ( The Phantom seemed to have made quite a surprising hit! ) to torch songs from Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive. From bootylicious gay icons such as Madonna to Abba's Dancing Queen ( and even to the gay-dont-wannabe Mika ), it wouldn't have surprised me to find them branding the lil karaoke room with a pink triangle.
Surprising to note though that the younger folk don't even know Madonna's Like a Virgin! Seriously what's the fabulous gay world coming to. Soon they might tell me they don't even know about Barbra! :O
But I did manage to view a surprisingly homoerotic music video from 2moro.
Guess Chinese boys aren't that prudish after all.
