    UNTnick22,
    We did actually make "Chupacabra the Musical." It's on YouTube. I even sing in it. Correction: I sing really, really badly in it.

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. I'll still be writing my column for the Advocate, so they'll be plenty of updates on our new adventures, and I'm always on Facebook and Twitter if you want to stay in touch.

    Just to clarify, this column was written to go along with the article on Victoria College's upcoming production of "The Vagina Monologues." Both will run in our Get Out section tomorrow.

    Prior to writing the story, I did look through her videos and with the exception of a few times where she would combine a three-day road trip into one video or something similar, she did post a video every day. How she titled them changed (some have dates and others do not), which may have added some confusion.

    As for whether or not she is newsworthy, that is up to every reader's personal opinion. We decided to feature her in our Get Out entertainment section, which is geared toward younger readers and focuses on entertainment, music, movies and on what local, creative people are doing.

    Her daily vlog is also part of a larger national trend, where people are taking on similar projects like this, such as the 365 Project, where participants take and post a photo every day as a sort of visual diary. With that in mind, and the fact that the issue's theme was New Year's and it was her New Year's resolution to do this, we decided to make her our cover story.

    If you have anyone in particular you think is worthy of a story, don't hestitate to send me suggestions.

    Thank you,

    Aprill

    I actually just got done with "Requiem, Mass" by John Dufresne, another ABR speaker from this year. It was also a wonderful read.

    I get chills (the good kind) everytime I hear "Do You Hear What I Hear?" by Whitney Houston.

    Pigskin,

    In the fourth paragraph, it says "Company officials would not comment further."
