This post is about a lot of things, but mainly Ben-Jon’s safety

March 8, 2013

Wow, there’s been a lot going on in the world of Vocal Point and TMtP lately, so we’re going to do our best to try and get caught up on everything.  First of all, can you believe that one year ago today we were in Provo?  And we had no idea what was in store for us.  Crazy times.  We’re sad that we aren’t able to make it out there for this round of Covey shows, but life has been on the hectic side of busy for us.  And our schedules have been diametrically opposed.  Here’s an actual gchat conversation we had earlier this week that took place at early o’clock or late dark thirty, depending on which way you look at it.

Troi: … you’re not actually awake, are you?
Crusher: ::shame:: yes
Troi: ::theLOOK::
Crusher: eh, i was working
Troi: did you get it done?
Crusher: yeah. okay, i should… nap, or something
Troi: lol go sleep!
Crusher: lol, ok.  love ya!
Troi: love ya too!
Crusher: g’morning!
Troi: lol, goodbye.

Okay, so now to play a little catch-up.  VP had a concert in the de Jong Concert Hall last week and it sounds like everyone in the audience had a blast.  One reader, who we’ll call B’Elanna Torres, sent us her thoughts on the show.  According to her, Scoot absolutely rocks his solo on “Set Fire to the Rain” (which, don’t quote us, but we think he arranged that new addition to the repertoire as well).  B’Elanna also loved the new Frankie Valli medley.  And guess what?  Another super-helper, Sarnic (hey! we met her in Provo a year ago!), managed to get a video of at a square-singing this week.

Now, when we first heard that this medley was in the works, we had one question for our informant: “Is ‘Who Loves You’ included?”  Our informant’s memory wasn’t able to confirm at the time, and so every time the medley was brought up again, we repeated the question.  Why?  Because “Who Loves You” is an awesome song.  There’s a reason why it’s the closer in Jersey Boys.  So, we’re totally tickled pink blue and yellow that Prince Trevortastic is holding it down there at the end with “Who Loves You.”  And somewhere Ben Folds is swooning without knowing why, as he’s just able to sense that patented Kevin falsetto from thousands of miles away.

B’Elanna also let us know that the guys sang happy birthday to Mega-G and that Bad-Decision did “one heck of an amazing job!”  Another of the TMtP faithful, fromsandytoo, went to the concert with her friend, dillpickle (don’t ask us, that’s a self-assigned pseud!).  These two fabulous ladies showed up in shirts featuring one of the suggested designs from the swag poll we ran a while back.  Not enough people voted for it for us to add it to the Spreadshirt shop, so these two decided to make them on their own.


And not only that, they managed to get a picture with the Staring One himself…

…which we took the liberty of TMtP-ifying for blog purposes.

Okay, moving along, Sarnic also sent us another video from Wednesday.  Here are the guys doing their encore number, the “Don’t Stop Fallin’ In Love Without You” mash-up.

And of course the most important thing to note is that Bryce is wearing red pants (if you thought we had missed them after the Frankie Valli medley video, you really should give us a lil’ bit more credit).  Bold choice, sir.  We’re pretty sure we like it.  Oh, and he sounds amazing too.  We’re really loving the smooth tone he adds to the group.

Next on the agenda: VP released a new single to iTunes!  We’re sure you’ve all seen this all over facebook, but if you need a link, here ya go: Good Times on iTunes.  We’d like to give a mega-gigantor-sized thank you to the VPer who sent us the link as soon as it was available.  We’re not sure where Key Chain ended up (is he still being held hostage by Tanner?) but we’re pretty sure that such displays of blog helpery earn you the right to hang with him for a week.

Alright, now it’s time for the serious stuff.  This is the time where we make a plea for one man’s physical well-being.  You guys may remember back during the November Covey concerts when the chosen “Call Me Maybe” girl chased dear Ben-Jon around the stage.  Which, you know, is one way to get a man.  Well, it seems the ladies of Provo keep raising the stakes in their never-ending quest to woo the man who was once turned down in favor of a Justin Bieber cut-out.  Not only did B’Elanna mention what happened during “Call Me Maybe” last weekend, we also had several people email us just to let us know about that one incident.  One reader, who we’ll call A.C., was even kind enough to point us in the direction of video evidence.  Here, see for yourself just what went down:

Oh boy, we’re not sure whether to high five her, bless her heart, or help Ben-Jon file a restraining order.  But what we are sure of is that we’re scared of what the next level might be, if the “Call Me Maybe” girls this weekend feel the need to try and top Tackler Girl (Tacklher?).   So, we thought that instead of sitting by idly and then finding out that poor Ben-Jon got handcuffed to someone or ended up in a body cast, we’d go ahead and provide some safe alternatives that you can choose from if you get selected as the “Call Me Maybe” girl.  How ’bout you:
  • Just start doing a human pinwheel around Ben-Jon and see if you can get the other guys to join in.


  • Toss Bryce a container of cinnamon.
  • Channel Sara Bareilles and offer Scoot a juice box.
  • Play air trumpet with Kevin, or eat an air sammich in memory of Tyler.

  • Stand and salute the McDictator.
  • Do your best “Thriller” zombie impersonation.
  • Preemptively have slips of paper with your own number ready, and offer one to each guy as he hands you his.

  • Throw up the TMtP hand sign.  Wait… that means we need a TMtP hand sign.  Oh, how about just “T-M-t-P” in ASL?  That would actually look pretty sweet.
  • Pull a brightly-colored handkerchief out of your pocket and sashay around.

work it

  • Turn down Ben-Jon’s advances and instead pull out a photo of the Biebs.
  • Try to commandeer the pitch pipe (and thus ALL OF THE POWER) from Keith.

controlling kevin

Actually, you know what?  Scratch that last one.  The goal here is to avoid a bloodbath onstage.
And finally…
  • Splay your limbs.  Just splay them in any which way.  Perhaps while yelling, “Being a human is hard!  Because…


So, we hope that these options seem more appealing than the escalating violence against Ben-Jon.

And we hope everyone has fun at the Covey shows this weekend.  Tickets are still available for all three shows at  And please, do send us reports with all of the hilarious things that happen!  And we’ll love you forever if you manage to get some video (we know that at some of the November concerts there were announcements to not take video, but we’ve been McAssured that filming will be okay at these)!  And eat a German Chocolate Crunch cone in our honor!  (Or not, if GCC is actually nasty… we wouldn’t know from personal experience).

It’s the biggest Valentine’s Day post EVER on TMtP!

February 13, 2013

…Especially because it’s the only Valentine’s Day post ever here on TMtP. You see, we’re pretty sure all of you remember that we prefer to celebrate a different holiday on February fourteenth. But, our dear Geordi loves Valentine’s Day so much that she didn’t want it pass by unnoticed again this year.  So she took things into her own hands and went to town Paintshopping up some wonder for us.

We present to you the Geordi-designed, limited edition, TMtP Vocal Point Valentines!   Of course, we couldn’t let things get too classy around here, so we did the internet version of bedazzling and added some in-your-face borders to make the darn things even more ridiculous.  We wanted to post them today so you could print them and share them with all your friends and family tomorrow.  Because that would be awesome.  And wouldn’t make them give you any side eye at all.

So a big, huge, current-VP-line-up-height-sized thank you to Geordi for coming up with these adorable Valentines.  We hope you all enjoy them as much as we do!

(PS – a “Happy Birthday!” goes out today to a very special reader who sent us all kinds of tips about where to eat and shop in Provo, and facilitated the great “Troi and Crusher come face to face with Kevin” introduction, AND who is just an all around amazing woman!)

Boys and girls of every age…

October 31, 2012

…wouldn’t you like to see something strange?

Oh, we’re just kidding, Jake. 😉 😉

Okay, in lieu of something strange, how about a lil’ Vocal Point-and-candy-flavored viewing game instead?

Here’s what you do:

First, go get your stash of Halloween candy.  Got it?  Good.

Okay, now you’re ready to watch the Halloween medley opener from the Sing-off last year.  That’s right, we’re kickin’ it True Group style today.  You guys remember this one, right?  It’s the one with this awesome hand raise:

If you can recall the way early days of the blog, that moment of win inspired this Dear Keith, (written before we ever knew Keith would actually see the blog and answer his Dear Keiths!).

Ah, good times.

Alright, so here is the video of the full performance, as posted by caldwellj on YouTube.

You can go ahead and watch the video a few times for enjoyment if you want to.  You may notice that certain VPers are easier to spot than others.  Once you’re ready, here’s how you play:

Each time you see Keith, eat some Nerds or Smarties.  We doubled up on the options for Kevin for two reasons: first, he’s in the number a whole dang lot, so we wanted to make sure you’d have enough candy to get through it.  Second, we originally picked Nerds, and we have to say, Nerds are totally one of the best candies and if you’re going to be eating something as many times as Gandalf is in this number, it should be something as awesome as Nerds.  But then we got worried that Keith would read an unintended negative connotation into being paired up with Nerds (really, even if we were directly calling him a nerd, that would only be a compliment coming from us).  So we thought Smarties might be a good second choice.  Plus, everyone always gets a ton of Smarties at Halloween, so there should be enough to make it all the way through to the Charleston magic.

Okay, next up: a McCrockett sighting means it’s time to eat some candy corn.  Why, you ask?

Oh, no reason.

Alright, so now we’re chugging right along, which is the perfect time for a little Tyler the Tank Engine action.  Of course, if you want to stop for a sammich break at this point, go right ahead.  Otherwise, partake in a Tootsie Pop each time you can identify Tyler in the video.  Tootsie Pops are a staple of Halloween, and no treat bag is complete without one.  Just like how Tyler was a total team player in VP, and the True Group just wouldn’t have been the same without his power stances.

Now if you happen to spot Ben and his smooth voice, take the opportunity to snack on the Milk Duds in your candy stash, with their equally smooth caramel center.

Cool.  Now, when you spy a little Rossface happening, it’s time for the 8 second Cowboy Ross challenge.  Do as the man himself would want, and see how many Jelly Bellys you can toss into the air and catch in your mouth in 8 seconds.  Double-points if you tag-team with a friend and toss the jelly beans into each other’s mouths.

And what candy should you dig out of your bag if you manage to spot Mikey?  Well, Mike and Ikes, of course.  And really, would Mike be able to get along with Ikes?

Of course!


Yeah, maybe.

Uh, not so much.

This performance, of course, is the one where we noted Robert is being a bit on the creepy side.  Of course, that’s kind of the goal, so he’s really just on task.  Take the chance when you spot him to enjoy a nice Now and Later, since he was in Vocal Point at the “now” of the taping of this performance, and is still in Vocal Point “later.”  Just seems fitting since he’s the only guy who has remained in VP for all of the “nows” between then and present day, and will still be around for some “laters” to come.

CLARK BONUS!  Whenever you watch the video and you get to the part at 2:31 where Clark from the Aires says, “I ain’t afraid of no ghosts!” eat a mini-Clark bar if you have one.  Otherwise, show that you ain’t afraid of no mystery candy, close your eyes, and select a piece at random.  Maybe you’ll get lucky and get a Reese’s.  Maybe you’ll draw the despair of those horrible peanut butter kisses / Mary Jane grossnesses.  It’s a risk.  A low one, admittedly, but that’s the sort of “living dangerously” you get here at TMtP.

Okay, so playing “spot the Hunsaker” is extra fun for this performance, since he puts on his Troy costume for a hot second midway through the number.  And there’s really only one candy fit for the man with his very own Jake’s Jokes blog segment.  That’s right, enjoy some nice Laffy Taffy when you catch a glimpse of Original Flavor Jake doing his thang.  Feel free to submit the jokes from your Laffy Taffy wrappers in the comments, we’re sure Jake will appreciate the new material.  Here’s one to get us started (from an actual Laffy Taffy wrapper, we take no credit / blame for this):

Q: Which candy can’t get anywhere on time?

A: Choco-LATE!


And finally, if you manage to spot and identify the elusive Honey Badger, well, dear reader, it’s time to go all out.  Bust out the good stuff.  That’s right, if you’ve got it, it’s time for you to eat your BYU Bookstore Fudge.  Nearly eight months since we went to Provo, we finally hear about this wonder.  And just like Tanner in this performance, it apparently was there all along, but we just weren’t able to see it clearly at first.

And speaking of BYU Bookstore Fudge, we want to give a special birthday shout-out to our blog reader Lynette, who was the first kind soul to tell us about this wonder.  We’re currently even considering buying some for our Thanksgiving holiday (any recommendations on which variety is best?).  So thanks, Lynette, for providing us with valuable information for making likely poor grown-up decisions!  Have a fantastic birthday!

Alright, everybody, now we don’t want you to make yourself sick on candy playing this game, but we do hope that it at least encourages you to rewatch the Halloween opener and try to spot all nine guys.  It’s a fun little challenge, exacerbated by the fact that some of the guys are wearing the plastic wigs, while others are not (we can’t find a logic as to the who and why of how that played out, but we’d love to hear if there was some reasoning).  And then, if you want to get really sentimental, go check out the Elvis medley again, since that was the other performance VP had this week last year.

End of the Road — From Creepy to Newscaster and Beyond, OF Jake

August 15, 2012

It’s night two of the VP Education Week concerts, which means it’s time to celebrate another of the departing members.  Tonight we party it up in honor of the man who has given us so much blog gold.  We are speaking, of course, of dear old Jake Hunsaker.  TMtP might never have come into existence if it he hadn’t brought such a delightful level of creepy on the Sing-off.  And since those humble beginnings, things have gone so far beyond just the creepy.  Jake’s shown himself to be a man of many facets:

A newscaster:

A sassy divo:

A comedian:

An irresponsible hobbit and a future dark lord. (And we didn’t even come up with those — that was from his friends!)

A sly winker:

Even a swanky leading man:

But we’re going to be honest: we love him most when he’s a little bit creepy.

Because no matter what else happens, one thing always remains true:

Being a human is hard.

Thanks, Jake, for reminding us of that and for bringing so many smiles to our faces in the process.

Anyone else have a favorite Jake moment?

-Troi and Crusher

It’s the end of the week — no wait — it’s just Thursday, wrap up! Search terms and announcements and such

May 10, 2012

Do you guys ever think about how it’s weird that we do our weekly round-up on Thursdays?  Kind of strange, huh?  We guess that the first time we got the idea to do one of these was on a Thursday, and we’ve just stuck with it ever since.  Yup, it’s about as logical as the rest of our blog.  Anyway, let’s take a gander at this week’s search terms and blog business, shall we?

Alright, y’all know the drill: category winners get 12,000 TMtP points, the weekly runner-up gets 26,000 of those 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 totally worthless blog points!  (By the way… writing this every week feels like reading a Baby-sitters Club book… Claudia likes junk food and has a unique fashion sense, Mary Anne is dating Logan, Stacey has diabetes and you’re going to be told these things in every book.  The points are the same every week. 😉 )

First up, we have the category dedicated to Hunker Down Hunsaker:

We had an old classic reappear this week, with someone giving some search love to creepyjake.  That was balanced out by another searcher wondering just what flavor the original is, and positing a guess with swanky flavor jake.  Which… maybe.  Sometimes.  Someone else showed some appreciation for jake’s funny jokes.

We love those too!  Now, we’re working our way through our Provo material, but we don’t want the funnies to stop once we get to the end of it.  So, if you have some suggestions for Jake’s Jokes, we’d love for you to email them to us.  It can either be a joke you would like for Jake to tell, or (even better) a joke you’ve heard Hunsaker say.  There may be blog points available for those who are helpers in this department.

We had another search from someone who liked the post for OF Jake’s birthday, and they are totally missing the guys being creepy for jake’s birthday (even tanner).  Yup, everyone’s creepy some of the time, and Jake’s day o’ birth was the perfect time to celebrate that.

Our category winner of 12,000 points here is: got a case of the jakeicles.  That sounds… painful?  What are the symptoms?

Splayed limbs?

Intense stares?

Word salad?

(the magic starts at 2:58)

And of course, crazy, crazy amounts of talent.

Next up, we have the Truncated Category for the Brothers Who Must Rename Nameless:

Yup, we continued to get a lot of searches for those curly-headed beacons of our youth.  We’re still going to try not mentioning them by name, in the hopes of curtailing the flood of searches we get each week for them.  Of note for us, though, was a search for jakebert forever! and the category winner: jakebert an american (well tmtp anyway) classic.

Darn right he is.

And now it’s time for those Special Snowflakes to get their category:

A nice mix of past, present, and future Vocal Pointers were represented this week in the searches.  A certain vocal percussionist was rather popular, as tanner nilsson vocal point was searched for eight different times.  It was nice to see his replacement get some search recognition too, with adam heimbigner getting someone to TMtP.

Some searchers were making sure Tyler got some blog love, with tyler from vocal point and captain awesome vocal point both making appearances.  Which really, Tyler was such a solid VP member that we’re glad to see he’s not being forgotten by the fans.  We mean, he gave us gems like this:

So we can’t let him fade from memory.  Even if he’d prefer that we would forget that moment.  We can’t.  We love it too much.

You know what else we love?  When we get searches for a whole heap of VPers.  So we were excited to see robert seely, jon rose byu, mckay crockett, and conlon bonner all get searches.

Someone was also totally happy for mikey, which we totally are too.  Zoe is just adorable and he’s such a happy father!  No doubt because his daughter was able to start out in life with a surplus of blog points.

We had a search for mckay crockett bio.  Now, we’re kind of thinking that one worked out one of two ways.  Either the searcher came to us, but quickly found one of the many places where we link to legitimate bios for McButters (like his ReMix one).  Or, maybe they got sucked into the world of TMtP, and found themselves bombarded with McPlots, McCheez-its, McFavorites, and McPodcasts.  Which could be awesome.  So… you’re welcome or we’re sorry, whichever you think is more appropriate, to both the searcher and McKay.

Trevor got some search love, including trevor johnson tagged, which kind of makes us go “Huh?” and give the Trevortastic stare while we try to figure it out.

Well, Trevor, unless you’ve been tagging some graffiti while you’re away from Provo, we’re pretty sure this means… you’re it!

While Trevor figures out just whatever “being it” means in TMtP Tag, we’ll also share that someone else searched for totally love the trevortastic wardrobe, and we agree, it was rather snazzy.

We were excited by the search for 2012-2013 vocal point members, because we were actually the first place on the internet to feature a picture of that line-up together.

So again, for reference:

Back row: Elmo, Mega-G, Provo Globetrotter, Rerun, Gigantor, Ben-Jon

Front row: Sporty Spice, Beaker, and Scoot

And finally, our category winner here is totally loving ben murphy’s voice.  No arguments here.

We now present a Small Smattering of our Random Searches:

Lots of randomness came to us this week, so here are some of our favorites.  Someone came here searching for a twizzler slap, and we hope they saw the evidence of just how much damage those delicious candies can do.


Someone else was looking for an official seal of awesomeness, and really… we think we’re qualified to give those out.  Maybe we should Paint-shop something up.  Give us some time, we’ll work on it.

We kind of want to bop on the head the person who searched for delilah pentatonix scera concert, because, uh… you left out the most important group!  You know, the group with the awesome shoes.

We’re pretty sure we’ve offered this before, but if whoever searched for sketches of baby seals actually ends up drawing any, of either variety, let us know.

Yes, we will take sketches of either actual baby seals or Kevin… either of which can be clubbing baby seals.

Our category winner here is starlight express costumes.  Because why would anyone be searching for that?

But we like feeling like helpers, so you get the points.

And now it’s time for the category where it’s All About Rerun:

We had the basics, with “keith evans” vocal point and keith evans vocal point both getting multiple searches.  Then we had some people who were maybe looking to see how the latest show at the Hale in Orem is doing, as they searched for the secret garden keith evans and keith evans secret garden. Okay, you can check out McBestie’s review here, and McSister #1 gave her review in this post.  And you guys, you can’t see them in this photo…

…but Keith totally wears spats in the show.  We love spats!

Alright, one of you says you totally need some rerun swag, which, at this point, you could satisfy that urge with a Dear Keith shirt or even an Elmo Sings Bass shirt (all available at Spreadshirt).  We don’t have any swag with the “Rerun” moniker yet, but maybe we will in the future.

Someone decided to push their luck and search for khakis flatter rerun.  Look, plenty of things flatter Rerun.  But does this look very flattering to you?

No.  Because khakis flatter no one. 🙂

And winning the 12,000 category points here is johnny cash sings bass rerun sings tenor.  We’re glad someone knows what’s up.

And finally, we have that catch-all category of All Things TMtP and VP:

Someone searched for who are the dancers in the jump jive and wail video, which, well… you need to be more specific.  If you’re talking about the original artist, we can’t really help you.  But even if you’re talking about Vocal Point, we kind of need to know what video you mean.  There are about a million-and-a-half out there.  In most cases, the dancers are just Vocal Point, doing their thang.  But in the music video, they have a whole periodicals section of support.  We had a reader named Ashley who told us she was one of the dancers, but we never could get a screen cap of her in the video.  Anybody else want to speak up as one of the dancers?  And we’re still big fans of Mikey and Mrs. Mikey’s dancing.

Moving along, someone wanted to know when is vocal point next concert? Well, it’s on Memorial Day.  It’s Vocal Point and some other a cappella riff raff (just kidding, Delilah and Pentatonix fans… we love you all!).  We talk about it here.  And to the searcher of totally missing the pentatonix vp concert… you haven’t missed it yet!  We mean, we will be missing it, because we won’t be there in person, but some awesome readers are going to try to get us material from it, so we’ll all get to blogperience it together.

For whoever is totally misssing troi and crusher, we’re impressed that you’re even missing us with an extra “s.”  But we’re still here at TMtP, holding it down.  Unless of course, you’re in Provo and you’re missing the time when we were able to blog about Vocal Point while actually in the same general vicinity.  We kind of miss that too.  Made things easier.  But we’ll press on, and who knows?  Maybe we’ll make it back out to Provo again sometime.

We completely agree with the search of totally missing the point: being creepy is easy, being human is hard.  You bet it is!  That’s why we have these shirts now!

So we can all proclaim it loudly!  And in the dark (glow-in-the-dark lettering for the win!).

And getting the category points is totally missing the point university where snark happens.

Yup.  We’ve given out (completely worthless and non-accredited) degrees and everything.  There’s even a school shirt.

Okay, it’s now time for our weekly runner-up and winner of 26,000 TMtP points.  And the runner-up is: mckay nilsson is a real person!  Okay, a couple of things of note: (1) We never doubted the fact that McKay Nilsson is a real person, but we’re delighted to give Tanner’s brother a blog shout-out anyway.  (2) We’re kind of curious to know what made someone decided to do multiple searches for this.  Have the Nilssons decided that the McSiblings get an unfair proportion of blog love and want to make a claim to some for themselves?  Do we need to give all the Nilssons shout-outs now to be fair?  What’s the deal?  And more importantly, is McKay Nilsson a honey badger too?  Does the “don’t care” run in the family?

So, we’ll give 26,000 points to the searcher of this term, and 26,000 points to McKay Nilsson himself, if he wants to claim them.  Unless he was searching for himself.  In which case he can decide which of the points he likes better and claim those.  No double-dipping with blog points.  They’re too valuable.

You guys know what time it is, right?  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 completely worthless points!  And this week’s winner is: totally listening to mckay crocketts unbreakable over and over again.

Good.  Choice.  For those unaware, “Unbreakable” is a little ditty McCrockett released on iTunes in 2010.  And with a heavy-handed wink wink nudge nudge, may we suggest that someone look back to last week’s search term post for the opportunity to get a few extra blog points.  The one involving this headshot on the left:

Those haven’t been claimed yet, and some of you clearly have all of the info needed to swoop them up.

Alright, now onto blog business.

Well, we sort of bungled our first week of taking Sundays off from posting, as we inadvertently missed getting Landon’s birthday post up by a couple of hours.  Sorry, Landon.  Hope your birthday was fabulous!

We’re going to stick with taking Sundays off for now, unless there’s some sort of Vocal Point Breaking News Edition that needs to happen.

ReMix Vocal Academy announced the winner of the private lesson with Dean Kaelin on their facebook page, and they are still taking submissions for auditions.  (And we’re still looking for a potential TMtP informant to let us know how the camp goes).  There’s also a new ReMix graphic on the facebook page, and it sort of fascinates us.  It’s like a splatter-paint-slasher-movie-poster-modern-art-vocal-camp explosion of wonder.  Head over to their facebook page to take a look and let us know if you figure that graphic out.  In any case, we look forward to hearing more about ReMix as it gets closer.

Okay, that’s all of the news we can think of for now.  Oh wait — remember how we gave all of our BYU graduates shout-outs when they finished?  Well, if any of you other readers have graduations coming up, let us know, and we’ll totally give you shout-outs too.  We want all of our smarties to be recognized, so shoot us an email at totallymissingthepointblog at gmail dot com.
