NKOTB... round two

Seriously, I saw that Christa had referenced their reuniting on Abbey's blog and I just had to see for myself. So, I googled New Kids on the Block Reuniting and, um, they sure are! Better get your tickets now! Iron your special florescent button down, pull out your favorite peg-leg jeans, and buy some Freezeit! hairspray because they are on their way to a city near you! No concert dates are posted yet.

I do not understand the boy band craze and never could get it. I suppose I did hum "Hangin' Touch" occasionally when I was fourteen, but maybe it's because they played it 1 gazillion times a day on any given radio station in 1990. Give me REM any day. I remember this girl, Kathy, in HIGH SCHOOL (of course I mean that high school was too old to be into these guys) would have this "polka dot" day for the New Kids and she and all her friends would dress in polka dots and wear their New Kids pins on their shirts. And I would cast disdain to them from across the room, roll my eyes and go back to sulking about my super-depressing existence on this earth while listening to Depeche Mode and Pink Floyd. (My poor mother- sorry Ma.) My mode of attire, as most of you have probably guessed by now, was too much eyeliner and black t-shirts. Not goth, but more like a wanna-be beatnik. Ho-hum. I still love me some Depeche Mode and Pink Floyd. Anyhow, I just thought I'd help get the word out about New Kids... OMG, they are so AWESOME!

Love ya Ginger...

understand this...by the time i was 12 i was over boy bands, all of them! the biggest phase for me was the grunge era. loooooved me some pearl jam, still love listening to them. a demented and depressing style of music. i never got into rem until college but the grunge movement was still strong. my favorite bands were goo goo dolls, third eye blind, and three doors down. could never really get into depheche mode but brian loved both them and pink floyd. i'll never forget listening to pink floyd, the doors and jimmi hendrix in brian's el camino while we were dating. ahhhhh, sweet memories!

I hate to admit it, but my heart did start to race a little as I read it! I would actually go...just for kicks and giggles!
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh. Oh oh oh oh, the right stuff!

Finally NKOTB is reuniting! It's about time that New Kids On The Block tours again. I can't wait to see them in concert. I've always been a big fan. Hear their new song and see some new pics over at www.NKOTBReunion.com
They still look and sound great!
