“The Era of Boy Bands Never Ends”

Heaven knows I love Boy Bands and I especially love when Boy Bands mix it up to form Mega Boy Bands. Well now to add to the mix we have a new Boy Band duo Nick & Knight!:

I’m loving the album and also enjoying the PR Tour the boys have been doing this week. They’ve been pretty tireless on TV and even in fancypants Time Magazine! And I love this bit on CNN because presenter Lisa France knows her stuff and has a quote I want embroidered on a pillow:

The era of the Boy Band never ends – it just ebbs and flows

Hell yeah! (and BTW the dude interviewing her is such a dick. Don’t give me the dismissive, “they don’t play instruments” line – WHO CARES! They DANCE which takes a whole lot of talent and they have had far longer careers than many instrument players!)

I’m really excited to see them in October and the show should be awesome with the new songs which are great for dancing, some Backstreet and New Kids stuff and a whole lot of nifty dancing from two of the best dancers in their respective groups. Plus they seem to be having so much fun together and you can really see they have a great chemistry and are excited about doing something different. And they are really good sports about some of their less cool history!

You can follow the Boy here and the Kid here (and obviously they need no introduction if you’re reading this blog 😉 )

He’s real and he’s spectacular!

So the last few years I’ve had all this trouble with Stupid Real Life Boys. And of course I have a lot of Imaginary Boyfriends. But something funny happened recently – I got myself a Real Live Not At All Douchey and in Fact Totally Amazing Real Life Boyfriend!! I KNOW!! RIGHT?!??

Just how amazing is he? Well he walked into my 16 Year Old Girl Bedroom home office which contains (among other things): an enormous Brandon Flowers poster, Backstreet Boys nesting dolls, Vampire Diaries paraphenalia, and a Wall of Men 3.0 – and instead of turning on his heels and running he exclaimed with utter enthusiasm:

This is awesome!

Did you hear that? It was my heart having joyful palpitations 😉

And he doesn’t bat an eye at my crazy shenanigans of chasing bands and obsessing on TV shows! He even offered to see Magic Mike with me! AND he said with absolutely no prompting whatsoever – that if a Backstreet Boys museum existed “I would go with you.” Did you get that part? How I didn’t even ask that?!? (and for the record – why doesn’t that exist goddamnit?!? I already have a date for it!)

I feel like anytime I talk about him I turn into a total gushing girlie. He’s a bit of a fanboy himself about movies and directors – breathlessly calling the night he got to meet one of his directing idols, “the best night of my life” which I took as one of the signs we were on the same wavelength about the stuff we love. He’s so great and he’s CUTE! Let me just say that his celebrity doppelganger is someone we like to call Jake Gyllenhaal:

Laugh it up Jake – you’ve been replaced!

A friend of mine said, “you’ve obsessed so much on imaginary men that it’s almost like you dreamed him up!” And if it weren’t for the fact that she and other people have also seen/heard/observed that he is indeed a real guy and not one in my head – it makes this exchange from last week all the sweeter:

Setting: Save a Prayer by Duran Duran is on TV

Me: That’s my husband John Taylor

Him: Hi John Taylor!

Me: I mean, you don’t have to worry because I’ve been waiting for him to marry me since I was 13 – but if he WERE to show up – I would have to leave you

Him: OK. You should tweet him and tell him he’s your husband

Me: DON’T THINK I HAVEN’T TRIED!!!!

Even better – one found me that thinks I’m perfect the way I am – in all my Crazy Fangirl Glory and really, what more can one ask for?

Calling all Fangirls! Think of the possibilities!: An entire Boy Band, Hot Teen Vampires, a Dillon Texas Football team or ten times the Hamm, Gosling and McGregor AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!!! 🙂

See?! There is nothing wrong with waiting in lines for boys in bands! Girls have been doing it forever! In fact, these ladies can teach us a thing or two – I mean – picnic baskets?? That’s brilliant!!

Thank you Nick Carter

You know me, I love the Boy Bands! This love extends to solo projects by Boy Band members. Which is why I was at Nick Carter’s solo show in Boston this week for his I’m Taking Off tour.

I was really happy to be at the concert because in the middle of this tour Nick lost his sister, and is currently dealing with family drama so no one would blame him at all for canceling everything to deal with his loss. But I so appreciate Nick doing what he does best – and getting on stage and performing which I’m sure is not only a distraction – but a valuable support to him from all the Fangirl love.

And he put on a damn fine show! Very energetic and fun – he’s got this wacky Spaceman/Rocketman theme going which means he comes out with an astronaut helmet on and his band are dressed in spacesuits! Oh, and there’s an alien roadie too, obviously 😉

He does some BSB songs and my faves from his first solo record (good god, how much do I LOVE THIS SONG??!) And he does some mash-ups of songs by other artists with his own. What other artists you ask…oh, just The Killers!!:

Yeah so that screech you hear between Somebody Told Me and Not the Other Guy – that is very likely me! The funniest part of this was all my friends with me know of my Killers love and they all just started looking at me and laughing (so were the girls in front of us who thought I was just a Crazy Person.)

Oh but that’s not all – he also threw in another little band I totally love LIKE U2!!!

Cue my mom and I jumping up and down like lunatics! A Backstreet Boy doing TK and U2 = A Very Happy Me 🙂 It was a great show and I’m so proud of Nick for giving us such an upbeat performance in the midst of a very difficult time for him personally (and did I mention New Kid Jonathan Knight showed up for support??)
