the writing and photography of Neil Kramer


I’m overly-emotional today. I wrote four posts, and none of them felt right, so I trashed them. And I’m having one of those “what the f*ck am I doing online?” days that we all have at least once a month.

Here are two photos of me singing karaoke on Saturday night. While I was singing, a woman I didn’t know jumped up and started bumping and grinding against me. You can see the fear in my eyes.

    I saw these photos on Twitter. I was going to steal one, but you looked so awkward, I felt it would be wrong. And I was actually jealous of that woman doing the bump and grind. I’m not sure if it makes it better or worse that you don’t know her.

    You have to fight the women off, don’t ya?

    She look pretty happy Neil. What does she know that we don’t?

  5. Long Story Longer

  6. The Bombshell

    She looks like she’s having a great time. You though, not so much.

    These are the dangers of karaoke they don’t warn you about in school, the ones you have to learn about on the mean streets.

  9. V-Grrrl

    Neil, exactly what were you singing? Hurts so Good?

    overly-emotional today?
    that’s kind of an understatement for you.
    you seem to be doing pretty good to me, relax and enjoy!

    Maybe she liked your feet.

    Trashed them? Don’t you save them for later redemption? You never know.

  13. always home and uncool

    Is this confirmation that you have soul?

    Scared? Oh honey… we have some work to do.

    I’ve never had anyone bump and grind on me while I sang karaoke. You must have some serious magnetism.

  17. Aunt Becky

    The look on your face, *bwahahahaha* it’s brilliant. I LOVE IT.

  18. Tuck

    Push past your comfort zone, man. Go for it! (Hope you got her number)

  19. Stacey

    A man who will sing to you is HOT! No wonder the woman couldn’t control herself around you.

  20. Lauren

    I am jealous of her manicure.

  21. Chris

    I have those “what the f*ck am I doing online?” days more than once a month!

    I wish I could have been there in person to see that. Holy smokes!

  23. Tuck

    I could only imagine what she wrote on her blog.
