Hang Tough!

Cosmetics will return shortly but now a word from our sponsor…….

Wow. That’s really the only word that comes to mind when I heard that New Kids on the Block are regrouping and rejoining the pop civilization as we know it. Wow.

This both scares and embarrasses me.

Would you look at Joey’s hat? The height of fashion circa the 90’s!

This basically means I have to embarrass myself by admitting that I actually loved this group when I was…11…12….13? It’s so long ago I can’t even recall my age how very sad! If you tell anyone about this I’ll deny it in aces!

Prior to discovering what real girly men are made of in Japan I was subjected to the girlish delights of New Kids on the Block (Hey, this isn’t Japan and we have poor imitation girly men here in the states! I just live here don’t blame me!)!

Now where as the Japanese produce idols that are seriously drool worthy we here in the US are subjected to such groups as the long forgotten Jordan, Joey, Danny, Mo, Larry and Curly (I forgot the rest of the names so I just added in the bit about Mo, Larry, and Curly).

Seriously I really did forget their names oh wait one just came to me! Donny! What about Jordan’s brother what’s his name? We can just go around calling him Mo for the remainder of this post!

I remember at first Jordan was the one I cried over (and hyperventilated and fantasized over) and later on I realized that a majority of the female population was actually crying over Joey so I quickly reverted to crying and screaming over Joey since everyone else was doing it and I didn’t want to be the outsider!

I think I was a late bloomer as everyone else was way into our friendly boy band before I was and I remember at the time my best friends Ellen and Kelly having their concert on VHS (VHS is probably before your time kids so go and google it) and it would be some sort of Friday ritual to sit down and watch it. Hell, I can even remember Ellen’s four year old sister dancing around to “Hanging Tough”….ah memories!

So what’s the point of this fine post?

No point! I’m just enjoying taking a trip down memory lane! Actually what I’m enjoying even more is the fact that the potential for funny is definately in this comeback! I need to laugh so bring it on New Kids! I welcome your come back with open arms! I can’t wait to see five grown men regroup and reform a boy band from 100 years ago! This should be awesome!

Hmmm…do you think Mark Wahlberg might consider making a comeback with the Funky Punch and releasing a new CD?

Maybe not. He’s kinda sorta an actor now I think? Only in American can you go from being Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to Mark Wahlberg, Oscar and Emmy Nominated Actor!

Prior to heading home I leave you with this gem from youTube:

“Donny’s D on the backup drug free so put the crack up”!

What the hell does that even mean…..I think I’ll e-mail Mark before leaving work and ask him about the lyrics!

    I think the older Knight brother was Jonathan.

    LMFAO, you took the words right out of my mouth; as soon as I read that the NKOTB were re-forming I thought to myself: the only way I’ll go see this is if ‘Marky’ Mark Walhberg is their opening act, not because I like Marky Mark, but because I hate him and want to see him humiliated.

  • the Muse

    YES YES! That was his name!!!!!!!!!! Freaking awesome! ^5 Dude!

    I was raking my brain on the drive home last night trying to remember his name. He was kinda the kid that nobody crushed on. they just added him in so it woulld be a cool odd number! Plus he was Jordan’s brother so they felt bad!

    Hell if Marky Mark opens for them I’ll go with you and we can roll around the aisles in fits of delirious laughter!

    I can’t stand him either and whoever he had to pay to become an actor should be shot in the forehead!

    Oh lord…I find it so infinitely amusing that Donnie Wahlberg used to be….that….and now he’s an absolutely brilliant actor. He’s incredible in “Saw II” and really the only good thing about “Dead Silence“.

    But good god. Even as a small child I couldn’t stand NKOTB. Can’t stand ’em now either.

    And I think I’m one of very few who finds Donnie more attractive than Mark.

    Well, I’m off to finish watching “Star Trek: First Contact“.

    Have a good day my dear!

  • MandyPandy

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s not buying ‘Mark Walhberg: Thespian’; pardon my French, but bitch can’t act worth a shit. In pretty much every movie he’s in, he plays only one character: Mark Walhberg. Lawrence Olivier, he’s not.

    We should totally go to an NKTOB concert, just for the LULZ; I’ll bring the rotten produce if you bring the eggs. Promise me we won’t aim for Joey, though.

  • the Muse

    hey Angelique!

    Donny and Mark actors…it somehow shocks me 😉

    Get outta here! You’re too young to remember New kids hehe!

    I can’t say I find either one attractive but then again my taste in men is sometimes weird 😉

    Cheers lovie!
    Enjoy your film!

  • the Muse

    Hey Mandy!

    LOL! So true it appears he always plays himself in every film he does 😉

    I found his performance in Boogie Nights particularly awesome!

    I’d go to an NKTOB concert with you any day of the week! We may piss ourselves but it’s so worth it!

    I’ll bring my granny pink panties to slingshot at Joey’s head! LOL!

    Hell I’ll help you launch rotten tomatoes at Joey’s head 😉

  • Kandice

    I especially liked this part…

    “Yeeaaahh…..can you feel it baby?

    I can too.”

    Hahahaha! That video sure made my day…I can’t stop laughing. Thanks, Muse!

  • the Muse

    LMAO Kandice!

    The lyrics make me cry with laughter!

    You’re most welcome!!!!!!! Glad you enjoyed it 😉

    I’m still trying to figure out what the hell it means for the crack to be up!
