All those that are tired of my complaining raise your hand. Yea me too.
I have a few new readers (Hi guys!) so I just have to get that last post off of the top.
Does anyone remember their first concert? I totally do. Before I reminisce, let me set up the scene for you. (I can just hear my brother laughing at me now.)
Who remembers Tiger Beat? You know the magazine for teens with pages and pages of pictures of cute teen stars and music artists? Well my sister and I had this thing. While I was getting pictures of Will Wheaton and tacking them nicely to my walls, my sweat sister next door (sorry Sis, but I am about to expose you to the world wide web, but I still love you!) would wall paper her walls and even onto her ceiling with Danny, Donnie, Joe, John and Jordan. It really didn't stop at the walls though. She had New Kids on the Block everything. Somewhat similar to my niece's obsession with everything Hannah Montana.
Probably worse though.
Ok totally worse.
It was catchy though. Soon my walls were being covered with Will AND Jordan and some of the rest of the group, but mostly just those two. I remember learning to do the dances and singing Hangin' Tough everywhere.
Then guess what? My parents got tickets to go to the concert! My sister and her friends, my dad and myself headed down to Provo for the big night. I still remember my New Kids tee shirt, my way crazy short hair and my stylish head gear complete with a neon orange band that went around my neck. (Can you all picture the awkwardness?) This my friends was my very first concert!
For years I have been ashamed to admit that I was ever a fan. Even up to a few weeks ago. THEN I heard their new song. I am no longer ashamed to admit it! This new song of theirs TOTALLY ROCKS! I love it! Go ahead! Listen! Then you can judge me and my awkwardness!
I am happy to announce though, since that day I have collected a shoe box FULL off concert tickets for bands that are WAY cooler than New Kids on the Block. Just one of the perks for working for a radio station all during high school. Does that help with points on he coolness scale?
