Ernie turned 30 and a veritable gaggle of adoring fans trekked to the Richmond to get him as drunk as it is possible for him to get and to keep him in front of the karaoke machine for as long as possible. The music stopped long enough for Ernie to blow out candles on two cakes (man, Ernie so old he need two damn cakes to hold all them candles - what!). Here's a video of that. Among the things to pay attention to: Something caught on fire on the cake MJ is holding. Also, who's busting out the harmony to the birfday song and showing off a strong vibrato? Oh yeah, that would be moi.
(As always, this is very dark. Deal with it.)
