If you ever wanted to learn how to sing September…

…it certainly helps to be a middle school student in Wyoming. Check out this little gem of the boys leading a workshop last Friday!

There are so many delightful little moments to snack on here… we’re loving Choir Director Kevin, putting those long arms to good use for the sake of clear conducting, Trevor working the crowd, the high-low height pairing of Scoot and Mega-G sharing a mic (Robert and Bryce sharing a mic is pretty good, too), and Hype Man Beaker… beaking, or whatever that hopping-lasso thing is.

This is all that we’ve found so far from the Wyoming trip, but we’re still holding out hope that more video might surface.  Plus, we’re getting a little excited to see just what stops the boys will pull out (better be all of them! Warp speed ahead!) for the Covey shows coming up in March. You can get your tickets at here and the dates are March 8th at 7:30 and March 9th at 2 and 7:30.

It’s a Good Day to Make Some Bad Decisions in Wyoming

February 22, 2013

That’s right, today we say…

Or, if those cupcakes aren’t getting you in the birthday mood, perhaps one of these options would be better?

Any one of these choices would be a great decision.  Of course, this could easily be turned into a bad (awesome) decision by choosing to eat all of the options.  So, you know… as you do.

Anyway, the guys do have a concert tonight in Evanston and one tomorrow in Lyman (info here).  And we hope that they take some time to do it up crazy Wyoming-style (we don’t even know what that means in this context!) and celebrate Bad Decision’s birthday.  Because you only get one Golden Birthday (he’s turning 22 on the 22nd), and if you have to spend part of it in the Standard Look, there had better be some kick-awesomeness in the rest of the day to balance that out.

So, yay for Bryce’s birthday!  We’re so excited (not quite as excited as Jessie Spano, but close)!  And so is… this guy:

Hey, we heard you like bowling, too!  Annnnd… we think you should convince the guys to call you B-ryce, B-rizzle, and B-everything.  B-cause… it’s your day!

Poll Results and the End of an Era

February 20, 2013

Okay, so remember how a while back we did a poll on who should be in the center of the human pinwheel?  Well, we’re finally back with the results and also some heartbreaking news.

First up, the overwhelming winner of the poll was…

::vocal percussion drumroll::

McButters!

That’s right, he downright ran away with it, tallying an impressive 80% of the vote!  A good number of you also wanted to help save Mega-G’s knees by putting him in the center.  There were a sizable amount of write-ins, including an impressive campaign for Ben-Jon, some Mikey fans (or Mikey himself) advocating for the creator the pinwheel, and a few of you sassypants who wanted us, as in Troi and Crusher, in the center.

So now, do you want the good news or the bad news first?

We’ll start with the bad.

It looks like we have seen the last of the wonder that is the human pinwheel.  With Cowboy Conlon departing and due to the addition of new songs, “Higher and Higher” is being retired from the VP rotation for the time being.  Yes, let’s all take a moment to have a good cry, and then let’s compose ourselves.

Sadly, our attempts to get a Zombie Pinwheel added to “Thriller” also seem to have failed.  But, we told you there was good news, and it’s true.

Before disappearing forever, there was at least one last human pinwheel.  It took place at Bobert and Mrs. Bobert’s wedding reception, and it was magical.  You guys… look who was in the center.

That’s right.  The human pinwheel went out just the way it should.  With McCrockett in the middle.

Happy Birthday to my favorite “Not a Birthday” Person!

February 16, 2013

Hi, all! Troi here. Crusher’s totally not a birthday person, and doesn’t like to make a big deal of it, but I just wanted to pop on here and wish my sister a happy, HAPPY birthday! I hope today is everything you wanted it to be. Which I think probably involves cake, comfy pants, and maybe an Emily Owens, MD marathon on Hulu. 🙂

Happy Birthday, Crusher! Love you!

Today is a special day…

February 15, 2013

…because two of our favorite people are getting married!  To each other!  And one of them is in Vocal Point, which means we can celebrate their wedding on the blog!

Yup, today is the day Robert and the new Mrs. Robert (or as she is also known, Sterling Scholar / the girl we wished happy birthday to two days ago / the Coolest Chick Ever) made it official.  And tonight they are celebrating with a reception featuring some VP-goodness.

So, although we can’t be there in person (ugh, stupid Utah for being so stupid far away), we want to send our very best wishes to the couple.  Love you guys!
