I've been on the site now ten years and I enjoyed good songs, good singing, and good friends in chat, some new, some that I have known from nine years ago and others that have moved on in one way or another. Lots of history, lots of good times in and out of chat. And duets... lots and lots of duets.

I'm the only male "duet whore" (thank you TOLERENCEOFZERO for calling me that and scarring me for life) on the site- in fact, I'm convinced I've completed more open duets than anyone else on the site. Between losing gold twice on this account and once on CoconutDuets (oddly enough all three times I had just passed the 2000 song mark when I lost gold, that's 5700 songs lost) on each account I kept the duets before they deleted my libraries down to 100 songs, I've lost at least 1800 duets. I've done over 500 with -Gina- alone, about which 100 survive on our joint duet account DORKNDORKETTE ). My companion account CoconutDuets is duets of songs no longer available due to others losing their source recordings. Seems a lot but nine years is a long time...
My style is copied from the opens I encounter, where the female almost always sings the male lead in the joined verses. The reason more people don't duet is that they are afraid of harmonies, so in the case of female open duets, most sing the male lead, so now I automatically jump up and do the female's harmony part in my open duets. I don't think I've heard anyone else do this on a consistent basis, but I've stolen so many duets it's natural to me. With my open duets, have no fear. Just sing my part, I've done yours LOL.
