New Kids on the Block set to reunite and tour! The moment you all have been waiting for!


...okay, not so much, but think how HILARIOUS it will be to see 5 grown men pretending to be a boy band again??  I will pay $123,000,000 for a ticket to that show.  Imagine this guy dancing around the stage:
It will be GENIUS!  Genius, I say.  But mostly horribly embarrassing for all parties involved.

I don't hate on NKOTB, but I also don't remember much about them except Hangin' Tough and Right Stuff (Love the way you turn me on / You got the right stuff, baby / You're the reason why I sing this song)... whoa... I don't know what happened there. Sorry.

I would probably go see them, though. Just because what I do remember of them is that they were freaking enormous when I was like twelve years old.

I won't even poke fun at them for reforming twenty years later. I mean, if there's a market for it -- even if some of that market is just a bunch of ironic ass hats -- it's still cash. And I would imagine touring and performing still holds its fun and appeal.

I wonder how much of it will be them each trying to pull in their solo stuff and how much of it will just be honest reveling in the old stuff that made them big to begin with?

Anyway, if I get any tickets, I will take you Sarah. Promise!

Worst news ever........

Wow. Flashback to my childhood and a ceiling covered with Joey-Mac posters clipped out of Bop magazine.

Btw, wasn't there some kind of rumor about stomach pumping???

Seumas said...

Don't even front, Stevobar. I know you have hidden copies of Tiger Beat with the curly-haired kid's face circled in a hand-drawn heart!

Seumas said...

The one on the far left makes me laugh out loud so hard. You know he's the 'bad ass' of the group, because he has a pirate on his jacket, a frown on his face and a giant bandanna on his head. Don't mess with him or he'll give you an open-handed slap to the face!

Lord 'o Mighty! Is there not one, nay not a single creative thought, talent or idea in the entertainment industry? We get sequel upon sequel of crappy movies, a 61 year old Rambo and a "new" Indy Jones who should be chasing Nazis on a Rascal. Now to top it off we see this has-been Boy Band trying to "get jiggy with it" as paunchy, middle-aged losers.

Jeeziz seumas...first you accuse me of being a closeted gay man, and now you imply that I have kiddie porn hidden in the closet too...

What have I done to deserve this?

(Wait, that's the title of a Pet Shop Boys song...holy shit seumas, I hope you're happy..I'm callin' my shrink for an appointment TODAY!)

gay bob said...

What am I supposed to say. Other than to note that their old, fat ugly, producer, the same one that produced all the boy bands back whenever, was accused of putting his pee pee in inappropriate places on their bodies, not that there is anything wrong with that, as long as they were 18. Stevobar, do you have any scathing comments to add?

Seumas said...

Stevobar, I said you surely had a picture of his FACE from a cover of a teen magazine with his face circled by a hand drawn heart! FACE!... NOT WEINER!

I don't know how old everyone is, but perhaps only people 30 and under can really have any remote appreciate for NKOTB. Being in grade school and junior high at the time, it was impossible to escape NKOTB. I never watched MTV until I was almost 22 years old and I could still sing NKOTB songs at the time, simply from being around girls at school who were infatuated. You really couldn't get away from it!

Anyway, if Led Zepplin can reunite, why not NKOTB? :P

gay bob- I am too consumed with my own personal crisis brought on by seumas's constant hectoring to add any scathing comments today..it's hard to be witty when you're at your wits end...

stevobar said...

By the way, seumas, will you go see Britney Spears if she gets back together?

Ahh,my wit is returning...the Xanax and Old Crow is kicking in...

gay bob said...

stevobar - seumas, I think you two are a match made in heaven.

NOW KISS AND MAKE UP!

Seumas said...

Britney? Dude, I will never go see Britney for any reason whatsoever. I'm too afraid that she'll bring out her Gallagher personality and we'll all start having to wear raincoats and sheets of plastic in the front rows, to avoid the copious splashing of her bleeding vagina! Ick ick ick!

stevobar said...

NOW we're getting back on track...our collective disgust with all things Britney will unite us once again..soldier on, faithful friends!!!
