Talent Time

The reason why American Idol is such a hit is because nearly everyone thinks they can sing. Ah well. Maybe that's why the rejects are usually more entertaining than the actual ones who make it on the stage for the American audience.

Fret not, fellow rejects, here comes ksolo, a community that allows you to look for songs that you want to sing, and record it in top quality. For the sake of the Drama Queen's Loft, I gave it a go. Several gos actually, well. It takes a lot of trouble to get it recorded properly, if you know what I mean.

The KSolo site is only compatible with Internet Explorer 5.1 and above only, which kinda sucks, because it means I have to dig my IE up and try it. Of course, 'teh' good stuff doesn't come entirely for free. To try it out, you have to register, which takes a few minutes tops, and then you have to install a plugin to record. Loading time is quite a while and stuff, but once you get the song loaded, it's simple as 1,2,3 to do your own recording.

Since it is a community afterall, you are allowed to listen to other versions and either cringe or wallow in self-pity while you hit the rate button. For the above reasons, I stubborn refused to listen to other people's versions.

Croon away.
