The search terms slim down for summer and something fresh on the horizon

Hey everybody!  As we move into summer, we’re going to cut down on the number of search terms we report each week.  Don’t worry, we’ll still include the best gems that make it through to us, but we’re noticing that we’re getting less terms overall.  Maybe everyone’s getting tired of bringing the hilarity to Google each week?  Or maybe people are just spending more time at the beach or park or wherever.  In any case, we’ll keep this feature going as long as it’s feasible, and we do love a lot of the terms we’re stilling getting.  We just wanted to clue y’all in on why these posts will probably be shorter than in the past for the next little while.

Okay, so let’s go through the terms, give out some points, and then hit some blog business and news.

As is the custom, category winners get 12,000 blog points, the weekly runner-up gets 26,000 of the worthless suckers, and the What the What with a Cherry on Top (of a German Chocolate Crunch Sundae) weekly search term winner gets 40,000 completely worthless TMtP points!  Let’s get to it!

First up, we have the ever-delightful Jake category:

Okay, we’ll start off nice and simple with a search for jake hunsaker.  Then we had a search that we can’t really confirm, as someone says that jake hunsaker is jokey smurf.  Hmm… is that true?  Didn’t Jokey Smurf just give people presents that exploded?  Or are we wrong about that?  To be honest, we were more likely to watch the Snorks growing up.

Someone else is still celebrating Hunsaker’s birthday, wishing him happy birthday jake.  We have a kindred spirit with the searcher who read about Hunker Down’s summer adventure in the latest addition of Jake’s Jokes and searched for jake hunsaker drives a motor coach and gives a tour?? sign me up!  Oh, sign us up too!

And our category winner here drew some Kevin-comment inspiration from that same post and searched for jakeicles the goof.   Yup, and we love him for it!

Now we have the category of Random things we’ve likely tangentially mentioned so now we get searches for them:

We’re always happy to get searches for things like the fellowship of the ring members, because we know that even if the searcher wasn’t looking for a matching of a former line-up of a collegiate a cappella group to the members of the Fellowship, they’ll probably still get a kick out of Keith’s response to that Dear Keith.  It’s just that epic.

Another Dear Keith likely led to the search of “how do you type with boxing gloves on?” tumblr finding our blog.

To be honest, we still kind of think Keith types with boxing gloves on.  At least that’s the mental image we always conjure up.  And really, searcher, if you’re looking for a tumblr, why would you click on a wordpress site?  We could only have ever been a disappointment to you.

Now, we’re not sure what the person searching for power stance theatre had in mind, but we kind of love that term anyway.  If Tyler ever wants to get into acting, Power Stance Theatre sounds like the perfect place for him to work.

Right?

Another searcher is probably currently confused and soon-to-be disappointed.  They wanted to know when does sing off season 3 start.  Well, the third season of the Sing-off started on September 19, 2011 on NBC.  Because it already happened.  And most of you have probably heard that there will not be a fourth season of the Sing-off.  Which, on the one hand, is totally sad.  On the other hand, at least we don’t have to worry about discovering a new favorite group and having to start over with a whole new blog!  How awkward would that be?

We’ll direct the searcher of pentatonix summer concerts to our post about the Memorial Day concert at the SCERA.  For whoever wanted to know about byu graffiti, we’re pretty sure Trevor isn’t the Banksy of Provo, and is actually just “it” in whatever TMtP’s version of tag is.  Still wondering what you’re going to do with that one, Trev.

We’re really glad that a search for impressive group led here, because we can think of one group that impresses that everyone should be acquainted with:

And as for the search for jokes about khakis?  Yeah… we’ve got you covered too.  Just click around a bit.  You won’t be disappointed. 😉

And finally, our category winner here is baby honey badger.

See, most sites would just give you something like this:

But here at TMtP we go above and beyond.  Therefore, when you search for baby honey badger, this is what you get:

Okay, now we have the Category we no longer mention by name but it’s for two brothers and you know who me mean:

Yup.  Same rules still apply.  Only the winner gets reported. And that is: jakebert makes every blog better.

It’s true.

Alright, this week, the Special Snowflakes will be divided up into three subcategories.  Let’s start with those snowflakes from the Past:

We are thoroughly confused by the search for free falling captain awesome of vocal point.  But we kind of like it.  Here: this is a video of someone named Tyler Sterling who may or may not be VP’s Captain Awesome (we really don’t know) kind of doing a version of a free fall (although not really, but it’s the best we could do).

Ouch.

There was a simple for search for vocal point ben, but someone else a little more grammatically-challenged queried what is ben murphy girfriend called.  Well, she’s now called Mrs. Ben, and today she is also called The Birthday Girl.  Happy Birthday!

And our winner in the geezers division of the special snowflakes is mikey of vocal point has the smooth moves intro.  We’d love for this category winner to provide a bit of clarification.  We mean, we are confident enough in Mikey’s moves to agree with you without knowing just what intro you’re talking about, but we’re kind of curious.

Alright, next up we have the Present special snowflakes:

Mostly basic stuff here, with jake tengelsen, vocal point ross, and vocal point mckay all driving traffic to the blog.  Mixing it up a bit, someone found us by searching for bobert sings bass.

And winning the 12,000 points in this subcategory is “mchugger.”  As we say in one of the podcasts and as you can see here…

…McKay is totally, one hundred percent, a McHugger.

And to round out the special snowflakes, we have those from the Future:

It’s fun to see the New New Guys get searches, although we don’t have much material to post about them yet.  Of course, if they or their friends / family / whoever want to submit stuff, we’ll be happy to use it (email us at totallymissingthepointblog at gmail dot com).  Until that happens, we’ll have to direct the searchers of adam heimbigner to the New New Guy introduction post, and this other post, where he commented.

As for the searcher of conlon bonner, we can tell you that his tour with the BYU Young Ambassadors of southern Africa is wrapping up this week, and we’re totally looking forward to Cowboy Conlon’s time in VP next year.

Especially if he manages to bring nine cowboys hats with him from the Young Ambassadors.

One New New Guy we do have material to post about is New New Guy 4.  You know… Keith.

We’re not sure what someone meant by oh no it’s not keith evans, but we guess if you were expecting Kevin and got something else, that would be cause to say “Oh no!”  Of course, you don’t have to worry about that if you go see his show at the Hale Center Theater Orem, since he is one of the few people single-cast in The Secret Garden.

That means you don’t have to worry about showing up and seeing someone else wearing the spats.  We still love spats.

But you know what we love more than spats?  The idea of Keith being back in Vocal Point.  That’s why we totally agree with the searcher of totally excited about the return of rerun.

Likewise, we totally agree with the search for keith evans needs a smart phone. (It’s true.)

And taking the points in this subcategory is: rerun dances the lsr.

Yes, yes he does.

He also jigs:

Does a mean Charleston:

Werks it out:

And we hope one day soon incorporates this entire routine into his dance repertoire:

A couple of bloggers can dream, right?

And let’s go through our final category now, all things relating to VP and TMtP:

We’ve already put of the plea to Conlon to bring some cowboy hats with him to VP, which would definitely help with sorting out the “cowboy hat” business?  Because… no.  Still not buying it, guys.

Now, we had sort of an interesting thing happen this week.  We had multiple searches for vocal point 2010-2011.

And y’all know how much we love that line-up.

But then we also had multiple searches for 2012-2013 vocal point byu.

And those guys are pretty cool too.

But we got zero search love for good ol’ Vocal Point 2012, the current line-up.  That’s just wrong!  Perhaps Trevor should have just made all of them Lost Boys from Peter Pan in his fantastic Dear Trevortastic from Monday.  That’s okay, we can improvise.  We’ll use the search term of vocal point image as an excuse to post the current line-up.

See, now you don’t have to be Lost Boys.  And fight vampires.  Or be vampires?  We never actually saw that movie.  Oh wait, that’s the wrong Lost Boys anyway, isn’t it?  Moving right along…

Someone is totally missing the tmtp podcasts, and to be honest, so are we!  We hope that at some point we’ll be able to do more.  Somehow.

And winning the category is totally missing vocal point’s pumbaa.  Aww, you are?  How about some Pumbaaface to make you miss him less?

We’ve reached this week’s runner-up and winner of 26,000 points, and it is elmo sings bass, kevin sings tenor, me and mcbutters would join right in there.

We’re still totally loving that shirt, by the way.

It, and all of the other new shirt designs, are available in the Totally Missing the Point Spreadshirt Shop.

And now it’s time for the What the What with a Cherry on Top (of a German Chocolate Crunch Sundae) weekly search term winner of 40,000 TMtP blog points!  Winning the big points this week is…

jake hunsaker vocal point- so good at expectorating

Ha!  We love it!  For those unaware, may we direct your attention to 1:50 of this video?

Totally Hunsaker, isn’t it?  So, 40,000 points to the searcher, and 10 points for Gaston OF Jake!

Alright, now let’s hit up some business and news.

We want to send a thank you out to Trevor for so enthusiastically tackling his first major beast of a Dear Trevortastic.  He seriously cracked us up with his comparisons, and we look forward to what other wacky hijinks we can come up with for his feature.

ReMix Vocal Academy is still taking applicants, and preparations for the camp are kicking into high gear.

And finally, a bit of a vague heads up for those of you in Utah / the viewing region of KUTV CBS 2.  We highly recommend watching their morning news tomorrow (Friday) between 6am-8am.  And if you happen to be handy with recording / transferring things to the internet, you’d totally be our best blog friend and get a ton of points if you worked some magic in regards to that.  Trust us, you’ll know what we’re talking about when you see it.

Alright, have a great night, everybody!

-Troi and Crusher

    Totally lovin’ the moves of the original Rerun. Who better to carry on that namesake legacy than Keith, a tall and skinny white guy 🙂
    Well, he used to be tall

  2. Fredette about it says:

    I won the what the what….hooray for expectorating jake! I am also responsible for jakebert makes every blog better, rerun dances the lsr and totally missing pumbaa. Sorry I was kind of a point hog this week but I’ m saving up for retirement!

    • Congrats to you! Maybe you’ll have to share the secret of how your terms always get through to us, it seems like we get more and more that come in as “Unknown.” Glad your funnies got through! 🙂

      • Fredette about it says:

        They’re snark point protected….I knew those votes for rerun would pay big dividends!

  3. Lynette says:

    Snorks!? First of all yes, I’m re-reading a bunch of posts. And second, I thought I was the only person who remembered Snorks. Every time I try to bring them up, those around me think I’m crazy.
