you've got the right stuff, baby

the new kids on the block are playing the tacoma dome in november (they're also playing at madison square garden. woah). a couple of the shows are already sold out - i guess there's no cap on the market for boy bands from the 1980s. seriously, who are buying these tickets? women who are now in their late twenties and early thirties and want to relive elementary school?

oh, alright.. if tickets weren't 75 dollars (if they were, say, 5 dollars), i'd be going. i used to seriously love the new kids. i owned all of their trading cards (like baseball cards, only cooler) and cried when they broke up (i think i was 9 or 10). and if i could have bought this, believe me, i would have:

how awesome is the new kids fanny pack? almost as cool as pearl jam socks (which i don't own, but are a real thing).

oh my god. it might be worth the price of admission to see 40 year old men do those dance moves.

i found this little nugget on their website: “ We’re still young, we’re still hot,” McIntryre answers with a laugh. “Our fans are between 25 and 35 now because they were really young then. They’re still very attractive — and very legal. So it’s going to be a girls night out. I know my wife’s going to be there every step of the way, but it’s still going to be fun.”

uh, okay..
