Of U2 Covers and Candy Soulmates

My British BFF Felicity went to see The Killers in London this weekend and made sure she got this video:

Because she knows how much I love Brandon Flowers covering songs by U2!!

And because she’s the World’s Most Awesome Candy Soulmate, she also sent me THIS for my birthday!!

 

FUCK YEAH CADBURY!!!

Flowers Friday: “Runaways” edition

The Boys are BACK!!

The name reminds me of this:

And the lyrics remind me a bit of this:

So – are The Killers in their Bon Jovi phase? 😉

Flowers Friday: Battle Born!!

Hey remember Flowers Fridays? It’s been awhile but that’s because Brandon and the boys have been pretty quiet ever since the Christmas Video of Sexy Cowpokes.

But this week they released a trailer for their new album! Is this a thing now? Album trailers? Because it’s pretty damn cool:

Ooooh how dramatic and exciting and a bit cheesy! What are they burning? Evidence? Bodies? What’s with the kinda dorky but still awesome logo?:

All I know is that I am very excited for this new album and probably just as excited to see this pouty faced pretty boy back in denim and styling products:

Is it fall yet???

My friend Karen has a New Kids on the Block fanclub membership – and look what they send members for Valentine’s Day!:

THEIR FACES ON M&M’S!!!!!!

What a brilliant idea!! I wonder if anyone else has ever had the idea of Crush Crafting band m&m’s before?

Oh yes, that would be ME!!!

Drive faster, boy

I watched Drive this weekend. I thought the opening sequence was brilliant but I didn’t love the rest of the movie. What I did love is how freakin’ HOT Ryan Gosling was in it! Leather Driving Gloves! Big Hot Sexy Watches! Form Fitting Dirty T-shirts! Satin Scorpion Jackets!:

In fact I may have gone a little crazy on Twitter about it:

Next up on the list: Ides of March and SUITS!

I know what you want, I'm gonna take you to a Midnight Show tonight...

Flowers Friday: Dirty Drums edition

Ronnie “Unstoppable” Vannucci had a birthday this week, so his bandmates posted this:

"Don't say we never did nuthin' for ya"

Apparently The Killers don’t live at Downton Abbey either! I wonder if Larry Mullen Jr. sees this and shivers at the thought bandmates lurking behind the kit!

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??)
