Now This is What AALL's "Denver Experience" Is Really About: Karaoke Night!
While some like Caren Biberman, Mark Gediman and others (see comment trail to Caren's LLB's post) address AALL's annual meeting abysmal programming that may benefit CVs for academic law librarians but possibly no one else, what really matters is Karaoke Night! Let's dream big, really, really big. See Cincinnati law library director Ken Hirsh's blog post for details. Call me Stream-o-Consciousness-Joe, but "what has Paris Hilton been up to lately?" Who is bringing the boom-box to the Convention Center 'cause I'm pretty damn sure I'll be busy Monday night. Note to self -- there are no scheduled sessions Monday night and that's a "good thing."
TR Legal on "We Can't Do That". Did you get an unsolicited call from some TR Legal "voice" who refused to email you dates/times for TR Legal "special" meetings in Denver with invoicing paying law librarians recently? Apparently, waste-my-time telephone calls is part of the "we love you, we really, really do" campaign. If you want me to attend a TR Legal event, send me an email identifying the opportunities to do so. Do not expect me to drop whatever I am doing to listen to you rattle on and then say "we can't do that." Hell, mail me an opt-out postcard. [JH]
karaoke will certainly help people with confidence in public speaking or in this case singing! and it's a bit of fun too.

Karaoke Night is fantastic fun. It should be a required program. It teaches communication skills, including using body language, team work and individual efforts and socialization. And again, it's just good clean (?) fun!

Karaoke Night is AWESOME! Everyone should go. Much better than any vendor sponsored event. And yes, I got that phone call too.

I just got a call from someone who said she got my name from a person in our Bloomington office, then said she was calling because my D.C. rep asked me to call, after I had given her the name of my local rep. I called the rep, he said he hadn't asked anyone to call me to schedule a meeting. I suggested the woman was really working for Lexis, calling to annoy TR's customers.....it took the TR rep awhile to get the joke.....
