Hey everybody! It’s Thursday (we know, weird right… Monday holidays always throw us off for the rest of the week, too), so that means it is time for search terms, blog points, and business. Let’s hop to it.
Hop, hop, hop.
Okay, a refresher in case you’ve forgotten: category winners get 12,000 TMtP blog points, the weekly runner-up gets 26,000, and the What the What with a Cherry on Top (of a German Chocolate Crunch Sundae) weekly search term winner gets 40,000 fabulously worthless points.
Let’s kick things off with the searches about everyone’s favorite street vocal percussionist, Tanner:
A couple of basic searches start us off, with the spelling-challenged finding us with tanner nillson, and the Scripps-ready getting here with tanner nilsson. Someone else decided to reference this post, and declared tanner nilsson almost too street for vocal point.
Yeah, we’re pretty sure that’s what he meant, too. 😉 Also agreeing with this line of thought? The searcher of honey badger vocal point style. He certainly brings a stylish edge to the Vocal Point proceedings when given a chance. We mean, we still think this ensemble was a fantastic choice:
So, we’re definitely going to miss the style Tanner brings to VP when he finishes up in a couple of months. But don’t worry, our category winner here is on to something. Here at TMtP, we will always be a honey badger appreciation society.
Okay, now it’s time for the category of all things relating to TCaR and REMIX:
Both byu “remix academy” and vocal point byu “remix academy” got people to us, and perhaps that’s due to the quotes excluding the all-important word “vocal.” But we’ll pop you right on over to the ReMix Vocal Academy official website, where you can find answers to all sorts of questions.
Now, if it’s made-up information you’re seeking about REMIX the group, well then, you’ll want to head over to TCaR, our little baby of a blog, where we’re chronicling the beginnings of this new a cappella sensation. (What? Too soon to call it a sensation? We don’t think so!) So, some of you have already played a bit on TCaR, and gave us some fabulous searches with troi and crusher take the wheel of tcar remix, troi and crusher ‘s tcar is snark fueled, and the category winner troi & crusher tsars of tcar. Yes! We’ve always wanted to be tsars! Sweet!
In the Let’s Brush Quickly by the Brothers We Can’t Talk about because We Get So Many Searches For Them category:
Winning the points and the only mention from the category is: tmtp ageless wonder jakebert
Yup, we proved it once before, and it’s safe to say it’s still true.
Jakebert just never gets old.
Next up, we have the McButters category that got a little weird this week:
See, someone was all about trying to pin down McCrockett’s personal life this week. Each of the following searches came in multiple times, and we’re not sure why someone kept coming back to our blog, as if we’d magically have the answers they couldn’t find fifteen minutes before. But anyway, here are the answers to your searches: byu vocal point mckay crockett wife (nope), byu vocal point mckay crockett married (no), byu vocal point mckay crockett ring (not the kind you’re thinking of), byu vocal point mckay crockett baby girl (just nieces), byu vocal point mckay crockett baby boy (only nephews), byu vocal point mckay crockett baby (still no), and byu vocal point mckay crockett girlfriend (well finally, a yes). With McPermission, we can say that there is indeed a McGirlfriend. And not only is she just the nicest person ever, today also happens to be her birthday. So, happy birthday, McGirlfriend!
Okay, so winning the category is mcbutters makes that shirt look good.
And now it’s time for a small selection of Random searches:
Someone wanted to know who the vocal sport winners were. Well, not sure why you came to us, but we can link you to this video that has all of the March winners. Of course, we can tell you how awesome one of the winners is, and that’s because he’s one of the New New Guys who will be in Vocal Point in the fall. We’re talking, of course, of dear old Scoot. That kid is cool. He even has a song from “The Land Before Time” on his ReverbNation page. So much win.
Less win, though, goes to the searcher of starlight express makeup natural. Um, we’re not sure you could do a minimalist version of “Starlight Express.” Why would anyone want to see that? If you’re going to see that hot mess, this is what you want and expect:
Seeing “Starlight Express” with natural make-up would probably bring the same kind of disappoint as the searcher who was looking for rockapella but found TMtP. Don’t get us wrong, we love Rockapella, but yeah… not so much what we talk about.
And winning the category points is hunger games vp. It makes us laugh so much to know that someone was probably trying to find out who was the vice-president in Hunger Games, but instead found out just how Vocal Point and the Hunger Games fit together. You’re welcome or we’re sorry, whichever you feel is more appropriate.
Of course, we’ve got a good selection of Jake searches for y’all today.
Someone out there was wondering how you call people who tell jokes? You mean, hilarious jokes that make people laugh like this?
Well, here at TMtP we call them “Hunker Down.” Or maybe “OF Jake” or even “Jakeicles” and sometimes just “jake hunsaker” So… you have options. 🙂
Even though it’s been a month, the birthday vibes keep on flowing, with birthday jake and happy birthday jake bringing people here. We’re sort of equal parts in love with and disgusted by the search for jake hunsaker hunker down forecast spit showers. Funny and yet gross.
And winning the Jake category this week is jake’s jokes alaska edition. Oh, we loved it so much.
Our final category this week is the catch-all for things related to TMtP and VP:
Someone searched for tmtp videography legend papa sterling, and it’s true, he is a legend. And a mythical creature at this point.
The search for troi in a cowboy hat most likely wasn’t for us (we’re guessing a misspelling of Cowboy Troy since he was on DWTS last week), but it made us giggle, so we threw it in here.
For those searching for totally missing the vp memorial concert, vocal point memorial day concert, and vocal point memorial day, we hope you’re pleased with what we’ve offered so far. There’s plenty more to come. Give us time to get through all of the material (plus, we gotta have something to stretch out over the summer!).
Now, for whoever searched for waiting for youtube clips of vp delilah and pentatonix concert — thank you for being patient, we got them to you as fast as we could! Our super-helpers were way fast, and we turned the links over to you as quickly as we could, given the realities of life. And we’re still totally in love with this video Michelle got the guys to do.
They’re just so tired and loopy, poor guys. Such good sports, those ones.
And winning the category points is totally missing the point university:snark capital of the world. Ooh, the capital? We like the sound of that!
Okay, now it’s time for his week’s runner-up and winner of 26,000 points. This week that honor goes to: papa sterling birthday wishes. Why? Because it made us laugh. And it gives us another excuse to post a picture of his cake.
And now, this week’s What the What with a Cherry on Top (of a German Chocolate Crunch Sundae) search term winner of 40,000 redeemable-for-nothing TMtP blog points is…
totally missing the point: rerun’s spats while gaston spits.
Mad props to this searcher for combining such a variety of blog jokes into one term. Go you!
And now it’s business time!
First up, the guys got a little feature on one of the Salt Lake Tribune blogs. It’s a quick highlight of the Remix Vocal Academy camp coming up in July (which, you totally still have time to audition for if you’re interested, just head over to the website). And as an added bonus… Hey, Kevin! It’s your favorite game! Spot the typo! 😉 😉
Now, speaking of Remix… wait. No. Not ReMix Vocal Academy. REMIX the group. Are you guys sure we can’t make “Beyond the Point” happen? Just for clarity’s sake? No? Anyway, there are some exciting things going on for them right now, so scooch on over to TCaR and check out our newest post on the latest REMIX news!
And finally, Keith’s show at the Hale in Orem closes this weekend. It appears that the last five performances (wait, five shows over two days?!?!? Are they trying to kill you, Keith? That’s crazy!) are all sold out, so we hope everyone that wanted to see it got the chance to. Congrats on a great run, buddy!
Alright, that’s all we’ve got for now, but keep checking in here on TMtP, as we’ve got some exciting stuff heading your way soon!
