I Make You Wanna Jump, Jump + Being Vulgar


I always see a huge drop in RSS subscribers after I post a Friday update. But I’m cool with that. I don’t mind weeding out people who don’t really care about all that RidiculouslyExtraordinary.com encompasses.

If you stick around after the Friday update today or in the future, thank you. Seriously. Thank you.


On Monday I guest posted over at WriteToDone.com with:

How To Find Time To Write While Traveling

If you’ve ever tried to work on the road this article should help you. And if you have your own tips please share them!


As promised in the Why We Do What We Do article, video of me bombing on Jump by Kris Kross:

Unfortunately I don’t have the whole song because my camera person was…well, she was drunk. But as you can tell from that 2 minute clip I didn’t fare too well.

The problem was there were no monitors so you couldn’t hear the music and yourself. If you’ve ever been on stage (either performing music OR karaoke) you know how important that is.

Enough excuses out of me. ;)


While in LA I was a guest on the ALL CAPS PODCAST with my friends Tanner and Chris.

Check out Episode 31 of ALL CAPS by clicking here.

Just a warning: we swear a lot and reach varying states of vulgarity throughout. So Mom and Dad? Don’t listen. :) (I taught my Dad how to subscribe to RSS via e-mail!)

And because most people don’t know where the name ALL CAPS came from let me explain. Myself and a group of friends from high school type in ALL CAPS to each other. Sometimes we type in ALL CAPS to people who have no idea what’s going on. Hilarity ensues?

So if I’m ever talking to you on AIM and start typing in ALL CAPS, don’t worry, I’m not yelling. I probably just forgot to turn the CAPS lock off. :)


I’m changing up the posting schedule a bit next week. You’ll see why on Monday. ;)


  1. How could someone unsubscribe after a bombed karaoke video? Seriously. I like update posts. They show that there’s a little human behind the blog.

    • Thanks Jenny! :) I can see it from both angles though. There is so much content out there that anything not considered pure signal will be considered noise and disregarded.

  2. Ahaha, you should change professions and become a rapper :)

    And since you’re already travelling the globe, you can have concerts in all the different cities you visit. Just imagine, you could build a group of roadies and groupies. I don’t know what you would call yourself. Karol The Travelling Rapper. And your world tour could be called: Karol, on The Lam.

    Heck if 50 Cent can convince people to buy vitamin water, I’m sure you can succeed at a rapping career.

    All seriousness aside :oP

    Thanks for the personal updates. I quite enjoy everything you post.

  3. Oh my god that’s amazing. It was a huge fear of mine but i’ve done Karaoke a few times now. In Britain people get so nervous :). It’s literally walking up there and singing for the first 5 seconds that’s the hardest part. After the first one we did 3 songs in one night. Well done!

  4. It was not as bad as you think. I tried singing Bohemian Rhapsody one time at a karaoke bar. I think that is impossible to pull off unless you are a pro anyway, but I DEFINITELY could not do it.
