5 Brothers and a Million Sisters...

Here's the new song from Joe. Here's the actual video so you can hear/see for yourself! Enjoy!!

Here are the official lyrics from Joe:
5 brothers and a million sisters

Friday afternoon in Bostontown
-still know my way around.
Tryin’ ‘a find the rehearsal spot
for the reunion of the ‘kids on the block.

Gonna rip it like we used to do.
Good to be back chillin’ with the crew.
Don’t know how its gonna be,
but last time we made history.

So tell ya mother and ya sistah too,
the New Kids are coming back for you.
And in my heart I knew you’d never forget,
but to see you again like this
makes me feel like I’ll never be alone.

Wherever it is I’m goin’ to,
whatever I am is because of you
and I thank you. And I thank you.
-didn’t know how much I missed you.
Thank you. And I thank you.

All the way back and all the way up tonight.
Call it what you want, but I’ll call it love tonight.
Some people said we couldn’t do it again,
but the New Kids had the last word in the end.

See what happens when you follow your dreams?
See what happens when you just believe?
The whole world opens up her arms.
Everything is easy that used to be hard.

So tell ya mother that I lover her too
and don’t you know we did it all for you,
cuz in my heart I knew you’d never forget,
but to see you again like this
makes me feel like I’ll never be alone.

Wherever it is I’m goin’ to,
whatever I am is because of you and I thank you.
And I thank you.
-didn’t know how much I missed you.
Thank you. And I thank you.

Cuz you build me up.
You make me high.
When I feel your love, I wanna fly.
No matter what we’re goin’ through
there ain’t nothin’ we can’t do.

And I thank you.

I wonder if there is any way we can thank him & the rest of the guys for doing this. I know they say they get it, but I really wonder if they know just HOW MUCH this means and how important it is and has become for people. And that means me. This reunion hit at a time in my life where I needed the one thing that has always made me feel like me. Made me truly happy. Made me feel creative, inspired, energized...Like Donnie said, it's not coincidence that we all came together like this and gave so much joy to so many ... not at all!


I've completely been slacking in my posting. I know. I'm sorry. It's certainly not intentional either as there is plenty of NKOTB related stuff going on.
  • Joe changed up his solo moment in the show by doing a new song he wrote which is pretty damn catchy & if you're a true blockhead is hits the heart in *JUST* the right place!
  • Donnie has a launch party scheduled on May 3rd (a school night) for his Record Label - and YES, I'll be there - school night or not!
  • The boys will be on the Today Show on May 8th - still trying to decide if I'm going to go by myself
  • The Cruise kicks off May 15th with a charity event in Miami the night before (which is dammmmn expensive)
  • Then the Full Service Summer Tour kicks off May 28th in Atlanta through July 18th in Texas
  • All 5 guys have joined Twitter which has supplied me & fellow blockheads with countless hours of joy & enjoyment

I also still have my Manchester recap that I have to finish & subsequently post. Damn work & other non-fun life stuff getting in the way. Maybe my lack of updating is why I have just a few loyal followers.

I will do my best to be more proactive in my blog updating!

Happy Anniversary...

Happy Anniversary, NKOTB!

It was one year ago today that New Kids On The Block were on the Today Show officially announcing their reunion. And after the Today Show, they came home to Boston to meet fans at Kiss108.

I was barely able to focus on work knowing they were on tv. I got several calls from family members that day wanting to know if I knew. As if I didn't...please.

The group's original reunion plan was to record a few songs, do a few shows featuring the old stuff along with some new songs, and just have fun with it. Some were hoping to do a full album where others were waiting to see what happened. I don't think they expected any of this to happen. They didn't expect their fans, both old & new, to come out in droves. They didn't expect the overwhelming response. They didn't expect it, but we gave it. 150%!

Who would have thought that one year later, I would have gone to 6 concerts, one overnight excursion in NYC, and planning on going to more summer shows?!

I didn't, I don't think the guys expected the level of reception they've received either. To quote Jon: "who would have thought that reuniting would have been this much fun!"

But man, I'm so glad that's how the year went and who knows what this year holds...I'm extremely grateful for this reunion and the opportunity it's allowed me to be ME again. For the new friends I've made. For the ability to be connected to Donnie on a different level...Words can't express how much this means to me and how much I'll treasure every single moment of this past New Kids filled year.

"Dirty Dancing" Contest...

There was a contest in Canada that the best video created for NKOTB' ssong "Dirty Dancing" would win tickets to a show in Ottawa. I don't know all of the details because it was specifically for Canadian residents so I didn't pay that close attention.

However, what I did pay attention to is the video of the winner. IT IS INSANE! Insanely creative, interesting & original! I'm glad this won! Check it out for yourself...

NY - Here I Come...

It has been posted on NKOTB's page:

Come out and support NKOTB performing LIVE on the Today Show, Friday May 8! With Special Guest! Check local listings.

Guess where I'm going?!?!?

And if the Special Guest turns out to be New Edition - AAHHH!

Hangin' Tough Live...

This is the encore from the show the other night... I'm posting it for a plethura of reasons but one is I love the little additions Donnie has added to the song and now sing the song *that* way.

Put your hands up, Baby, put your hands up.... OH OOOOH!

Photos: Manchester, NH

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the show in Manchester, NH.

I originally took 385 but got it down to 228 (due to blurriness or just bad photos). Aren't you surprised/proud/shocked that rather than uploading them all, I actually deleted over 100 pictures!? I know I am.
I plan on adding more as I finish the recap - but these are just to tied you over...
