Such a bad idea

New Kids on the Block Reunite

No, it's not a joke.

And yes, I was a fan when I was eight years old.

I put myself through college selling t-shirts at Rock concerts. By and far the loudest concert I ever worked at was a New Kids on the Block concert. This may surprise you. I mean I worked some pretty heavy-metal concerts. But you know what? No matter how loud the head-bangers turned up their amps, they were never as loud as 25,000 screaming eight year old girls. Honestly I have never heard a louder sound in my life.

As a footnote I also made more money at New Kids concerts too. Eight year old girls just have to have one of everything we sold. So Jenney, thanks for putting me through college.

They are determined to destroy our childhoods. This, They're remaking Short Circuit, the A-Team and GI Joe movies...did I miss a meeting, or have they given up on coming up with new ideas.

On a completely unrelated note, who's excited for Battlestar Galactica tonight? ;)

OK, yeah. Once the initial smackdown of nostalgia disappeared, I wondered what they would call themselves now. I mean, can a nearly-40 group call themselves "kids" anymore? Are they going to shake their groove thangs the way they did in their teens? Is Ben Gay and Glucosamine for sale at Sam's Club? I'm sure the added testosterone and age were probably great for their voices, but I'm going to have to wait and see...

I screamed myself horse at their concert when I was a kid. But that was then. Yikes.

Libby, they are NKOTB (ugh) these days it's cool to go by the initials.

Ugh. They were NKTOB back in the day, too. I was in junior high when they hit. My friends and I acted like we were too old for that stuff and pretended like we hated them while I think we all secretly had a crush on Joey.

Global warming, war in the middle east, NKOB reforming. I think we have an armageddon trifecta in play :)

Aren't they the old kids on the block now? (grin)
