Singshot - Karaoke with comments!

Now I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing... With my singing it is definitely a bad thing. I had to try this site out in the interest of good journalism, so there is now a recording of my singing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' somewhere out in cyberspace.  I tried the 'send to blog' function, but of yet it hasn't made it to my blog (thank goodness!).  However over night a few copies may show up as I pressed the button repeatedly, oops. 

Anyway, SingShot - Online Singing, Karaoke, Sharing, Ratings, and Community is a site where you can set up a profile, choose a song and record yourself singing it.  Pretty simple.  The recording is then kept on your home page where anyone can come and listen to you, leave a rating and a comment.  It is completely open so hopefully the comments are monitored by someone!  And I deserve any 'oh dear' comments that might be left on my recording!  You have to be over 13 to register, but I could see some students having fun with this one. 

Blogged with Flock

Hi Jane

Thanks for that!

I was listening to Miles Davis when I saw your post, so I turned him off and listened to you.

You seemed to be getting right into the swing of it, getting better with each line...and then you stopped! I had to finish it off myself.

Now there's an idea! Karaoke Collaborations....

I'd better stop.

Hmmm..I was able to sing away and listen back to myself but every time I tried to save it, it seemed to freeze up on me. Very irritating when I am trying to share my wonderful talents with the world at large. It said in the fine print that it didn't support Firefox on a Mac so I tried Safari but had the same problems. I will try again another time :)

Hi Jane
I read your comments on Sheryl's blog post with interest :)
I sometimes think that our friends in the US are searching too had to name things!!!

Oh my, Mark, I'm sorry to put you through that. I think Web 2 is wonderful but there are just some things that shouldn't be shared :)

Suzie I used Flock and it seemed to work alright, all except for the send to blog function (which by the way I am quite happy about)

Paul, I agree with you, we get hung up on semantics and this clouds the issue at hand. However, I have expanded my thinking a bit further over on Sheryl's blog and can see where she is coming from.
