Wonder Twins Review: New Kids on the Block @ The Palace, Saturday Oct. 25

It's the show we were born to review! Okay, that might be a stretch... But one thing is for sure - seeing Danny, Donnie, Joe, Jon and Jordan again was a strange and kind of cathartic experience. I remember during our formative years (the bad years of that period, as we fondly refer to them) camping out for tickets to a show that was to take place on our birthday only to end up with tickets behind the stage in a section that was totally empty besides our little group which consisted of the two of us, my mom and some equally obsessed friends. We were the NKOTB devout - whenever had we done to deserve such crappy tickets? Twenty years later here we are in a fancy executive suite right next to the stage... If only we were still as obsessed and filled with anticipation - no, I take that back. Thank god we are not those girls.

Tomorrow we'll be going to Jolie Holland at The Pike Room in Pontiac, which should be a great show... After that there is no telling when I'll get D'Anne out of her sweat pants and to another show... So you'll just have to hang tight - or hang tough (zing!).

Did Jordan hit on you? Because I thought he might and that would have been hilarious! So how was they're new material? How have they grown as artists?

"You cried when Donnie got arrested for setting that hotel carpet on fire, you said you would be waiting for him when he got out of prison."

Bwwaaaahahaha! I remember that. I taped the news report from the TV. Thanks for the report. I was curious, but not curious enough to actually go.

Melody – Thanks for the comment. I am happy I could suffer for you. For further suffering (if you're into that sort of thing), I would encourage you to check out some of Danny Wood's SOLO MATERIAL. Why this even exists, I do not know, but wow. Astoundingly bad.
