    I knew my daughter and a few friends formed a singing group and are calling themselves the "Tempetations" (ASU is in Tempe... get it :smilewinkgrin:) Haven't heard much about it since, except "we're just practicing singing"...now, but and if your a Dad that really wants to know want is going on in your kid's life while away at college one idea is that you might try searching youtube to see if you can find out if anything is happening.

    Yup, just as I suspected...low and behold discovered my daughter messing around and singing the lead in this song:

    Busted!

    Another strategy is stalk the facebook pages of your students and their friends.

    Not that I would do such a thing, but I've heard of others doing this.

    Hmm... Crazy College Kids (shaking head) I guarantee there was some "fruit drinks" in that room somewhere. :laugh:

    Looks like fun, with the added benefit that the girl can sing! I have one of my kiddo but it has cheerleaders in uniform and lots of dancing and such so I'm sure it would offend numerous people here. (what doesn't?)

    Don't want to be a party pooper but

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Temptations

    Hence them naming theirselves the "TempEtations" and my explanation of how this group name came about was because of the college being in the city of "Tempe" from the Op. ;)

    Well, doubt it would offend me...Post it already, I got your back ;). My daughter is changing her major to musical therapy next semester and speaks of plans to incorporate dance (two years of prior dance edu also) into this, along with this she is double majoring in human nutrition and exercise wellbeing. She's thinking of going for her doctorate in physical therapy afterward. Although... she keeps kicking around the idea of being a brain surgeon too...:laugh: Not that she couldn't...Time will tell.

    Oh, thank you. She appears to be goofing around, she had one up before of her singing opera that was amazing, but it was only for an interview and then she pulled it.

    Yes, while living on the bare essentials she musta found some of those fruit drinks because she appears to have gained about 10lbs...:laugh: she would be sooo offended about me commenting about that. She probably doesn't know the video is up either and would hang the person responsible, :laugh:. You got to watch it nowadays; anything happens and those kids will have you surrounded in the blink of an eye with their phones on video recording quicker than I could even get my phone out of my pocket.
