80s rant #2


The New Kids on the Block are getting back together.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

As I've ranted before - some things should have just DIED in the 1980s - including this group's musical career.

Gag me with a fucking spoon. The hair wasn't bad enough the first time? I mean, they practically created a worldwide shortage of hairspray!

And every time I went into my (former) stepsister's room, I had to look at all of their mugs, because she (like everyone under 14 except me, apparently) was in love with one of them.

It would make me quite happy if there were NO kids on the block.

don't make me bust out my charcoal pencil drawing of me with Donnie from 1989!!

i also had a huge thing for Corey Feldman around the same time, so apparently i worked out some latent fascination for cocaine-abusing, over-accessorizing men before the age of 15.

and boy did i dodge a bullet, because then i saw Donnie in The Sixth Sense and time has not been good to him. and i would've had to deal with Marky Mark at Christmas dinner, pretending he had acting talent and like i didn't remember his "rap career", and who wants that shit?

Maybe now they can be known as the Old Kids on the Block... oh oh oh oh oh ooooooooo oh oh oh oh ooooo bad stuff

(probably funnier if you remember the "classic" tune...)

Did you hear? The report was false. No tour. You happy now? :)

Riot Kitty said...

False, or not false? Has someone hijacked their web site? One can only hope this is a big joke!

I guess I wasn't paying attention to all the boy bands back then.
I'm more a Beatles fan.. *grin*
