Me and Shelley Segal singing "Somebody That I Used To Know"

I bumped into Shelley Segal at American Atheists 2012 and the Reason Rally.  We wound up doing some singing in the hotel lobby.  The good people at jesusfajitafishsticks filmed it.

In my defense, she’s got a stellar voice and it was early and I only barely knew the lyrics.  :P

Also, singing B-flats as a baritone while you’re worn out from four straight days of conferencing is not the wisest decision somebody could make.

MORNING HAPPINESS: Don't Wait For Heroes.
MORNING HAPPINESS: Going to see Bo Burnham!

          FtB roadtrip?

  • Goecke Chuck

    JT, I’ll second that you’ve got nothing to apologize for. Your voice is awesome, and complements Shelley’s very nicely. You both have a great edgy sound for great edgy topics. I’m glad Shelley’s making it to some Atheists conventions.

  • Brother Gilbuty

    She does have an amazing voice! You did quite well too JT!!

  • Neal

    I would have died of happiness if JT had pulled out a marimba or xylophone for the intro.

  • Kaoru Negisa

    My hate for you is a killing word, JT. %) I’m struggling to be just good enough not to make people’s ears bleed, and you rocked that with worn out baritone B-flats in a song you barely know. What are the odds I can bug you for advice if we’re ever in the same place at the same time?

    • JT Eberhard

      100% You can have a free voice lesson anytime we’re in the same place assuming I’m not bogged down busy. Just work it out with me ahead of time. :)

      • Kaoru Negisa

        You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. And if the ladies ask, you’re a rogue of ill repute.
