Magic Stick

My father, being the gadget freak that he is, recently purchased a karaoke singing gadget ironically called "Magic Stick". I say ironic because there is nothing magic about it. If it were magic, it would disappear or at least change the tone deaf users into somewhat bearable singers. This came in the mail yesterday and is pretty simple to work. One can just attach it to the television and then look thru this book for a song. The music is already stored in the "stick" and the microphone has numbers like a telephone on it. Just punch in the corresponding number of the song, and poof--the lyrics appear on screen along with images of chicks riding horses and many, many views of the Grand Canyon (especially with the cheesy Barry Manilow love songs). My father and mother enjoyed this gadget for a good 3 hours yesterday. Oh yes, it not only comes with one magic stick, but a wireless one as well--so my mother and father were a duet, even when Mom was in the kitchen cooking rice.

I'm sure I'll be borrowing the Magic Stick sometime in future, for the pleasure of any house guests I may have!!!


  • My friends all enjoy doing karaoke, so I can imagine what its all about. The background scenes never seem to match up to the song and people sound so bad singing without the real singer helping out. So funny.

  • Here's a fun fact: The Grand Canyon was actually constructed in honor of the classic Barry Manilow tune "Copa Cabana."

  • This is a serious threat to the new video iPod. Steve Jobs must be worried sick.

  • Oh man that's awesome! I think if you and I did a duet, we'd get loads of applause and flowers!!! We'd be the next Sonny and Cher.
