Notating for Beatboxing?

In a lot of my arrangements, I intend them to be performed by my 8 person a cappella group and our beatboxer. Is there any standard way to notate what I would like him to do, besides just going in with drums and renaming the line to Beatboxer? I'd be interested to see someone else's solution to this.

Is 'Laugh Silly' a legitimate art form?

Laugh Silly is a group on Musescore. What is really meant by the question is: Can music that focuses on being silly just to provoke a laugh, music that seems to enjoy depreciation and decomposition as laugh-worthy themes, music that further seems to work hard at avoiding being serious, be considered a serious art form worthy of respect? And wouldn't this be totally counter to the point? How can anything that doesn't want to be serious, be considered serious? How can anything that doesn't want respect, accept any form of respect? How can anything that simply wants to be silly be an art form? Once it becomes serious, respectful, and an art form, it basically disintegrates and is no longer what it sets out to be. It is a quandary. Are we asking the wrong question?

Great Piano Group for Composition Competitions!

There are many good ones out there...
But they do not have competitions very often.
You have constraints and rules you have to follow. Sometimes it is as easy as writing a dissonant Minuet, sometimes it might be as challenging (for some people) as writing a Fugue. So come on! Enter your first competition! The winner (whoever recieves the most votes) will be moderator/co administer to the group until the winner of the second competition wins! Hurry! Deadline is August 8!
