Hmmmm. took me a while to post this but you will have to excuse me, because i have been busy with university stuff and besides I'M ON THAT BOAT SO I DON'T FREAKING CARE IF YOU DON'T EXCUSE ME!!!
So since the dates of the cruise and the sale and pre-sale were published i have been trying to decide if i should go or not. Lists of pro and cons have been written, hundreds of tweets have been tweeted, long night chats have been chatted and i still couldn't make my mind.
I wanted to go- thats no secret, but I also wanted to be smart so it was like this: I wont have money for both cruise and tour, and since Jon showed no signs of wanting to marry me and take me with him and his little bro on that boat -I had to choose.
Then i realized my 2 guttah friends and possible roomies were not going....thats when i decided that i wont go and i will keep the money for a few concerts coz hey, we all know that one cruise can buy at least 4 VIP concerts.. see? I can even do basic math.
Then a friend asked me if i was going coz she was looking for a roomie and BOOM!!! YES YES YES!!! IM GOING!!!!! FREAKIN YES!!!! the only condition we had was: we are going ONLY if the cabins of less than 1000 usd are available. the way i saw it .. if god wants me there there will be a cabin for me and if there isn't then well. it wasn't meant to be
Thats when the fun begun...........
The day of the sale got here... and since I've heard from past cruisers that it took them hours to book on pre-sale i got myself prepared.. oh yeah!!! nothing was gonna stand between me and seasickness!
Sale starts at 18:00 Israeli time so ..
17:45-I made myself a huge iced-coffee, took some comfort food, my phone, my cellphone, my roomie's info.. and waited.... and waited .. and then waited a bit more
17:50- I remind myself that I'm gonna stay calm and thats all out of my hands, i will do my best to get us on that boat but its not up to me really
18:01- I got in the site.... found THE CHEAPEST CABIN... entered out info and .. surprise surprise... got kicked out the server...
18:02- im in the site.. no cabins available
18:03 - got kicked out
18:04- found a cabin
18:05 kicked out....
18:06- no cabins available
18:07- consider suicide by hanging myself with the laptop cable
18:10- cant enter the site
18:11- all cabins available
18:12- kicked out
18:13 trying to throw my laptop out the window
18:15- some cabins left
18:16- our info
18:1677- kicked out
18:20- Only expensive cabins
18:21- 18:45 the site is busy
18:46- a few cabins available
19:00- our info
19:01 kicked out
19:02- People have confirmations and posting the numbers on ning.. which makes me more nervous...It's not that i'm jealous..I'm worried all those BH got MY
19:03- Other friends having the same problem as me
19:05- no cabins available
19:06- no SITE available
19:07- hmm i wonder what could happen if i banged my head on the wall
19:08-breath.. inhale.... exhale.... inhale..... I WANT TO BE ON THAT BOAT
19:10- in the site.... theres a medium priced cabin and it has my name all over it
19:11- trying to contact my roomie to see if its OK with her
19:15- im gonna book it anyways
19:17 no cabins
You know how it goes from here so to make a long story short... so
somewhere around 21:00 (THREE hours after i got in the site) I managed to put our names on a cheap cabin.. then when i went to the payment page... surprise surprise..... got kicked out
20:05 - my roomie and I decide that screw our mature math and thinking... we are booking whatever is available
20:50 I found a medium priced cabin.. I even put our payment info.. and of course i never get the confirmation page... so smart ass me clicks back and again and again.. Then i realized that i might be double booking but well... You know...... I WANNA BE ON THAT BOAT!!!
23:00- (yes.. FIVE hours later) I get an email confirmation- WE ARE ON THAT BOAT!!!
But the surprise is that god-knows-how it booked us on the CHEAP cabin.. the first one i picked and got kicked out of it.... Thats when i realized GOD EXISTS AND SHE IS A BLOCKHEAD!!!
So of course Rose Tours had a huge mess and almost charged me twice but although I've heard some horror stories about them, they have been nothing but nice to me, they fixed the problem immediately and the big surprise is that They are gonna have Kosher food for me on board.. i didn't even requested it.. i just asked if it was available.. See? god is a blockhead!!!!!
A few days later me and another BH booked an hotel so we can spend a few days in Miami since we are coming from far away (Israel and Australia) and then i even found a great deal on a flight .. so you know what i think about god and her music tendencies- right!?
So the bad thing about this is that theres only around 2000 of us on that boat and lot so friends and people I know where not lucky enough to be able to book... lots of them had worse problems during booking, than i did. and other just gave up. And others decided to save the money for future tours.
Me? As Ddub says... I live only once, I don't know where am I gonna be when they launch a new tour ( probably home, eating my guts for not going) but I do know that NOW i have the possibility to go to that cruise, NOW I have the chance to go spend 3 days with a bunch of crazy BH.
So I hope Jon and Jordan are getting ready coz......

And for those of you saving for the cruise... here, have some inspiration:

Jul 19, 2009

It ain't oavh till the fat lady sings (and since they are 5 really hot guys- it will nevah be ovah

Gotta warn you all, this blog is being written a few hours after the last concert has ended (Last for this tour) and well, I'm a woman after all.... so forgive me if it gets too messy or too long in here.

Last night I finally sat down and watched the webcast, it felt almost as if I was there, sharing the moments with the guys and with my BH sistahs. I saw the opening and I had the butterflies in my stomach, I watched "If you go away" and I could feel like they were really reaching a hand and touching my soul, for realz, thats how I felt. I managed to watch "5 brothers& million sisters" without crying..It actually made me happy, it made me think about all my BH sisters that have been with me along this ride, about the fun we have togetah and just made me think that hell!! if they came back after so long.. they will nevah disappear.. RIGHT?
And then it happened.."I'll be loving you forever"!! while I was watching Jordan sing that, I realized what a long and great journey this one is ( I'd hate to write has been). While Jordan was giving his whole heart in that song, in a way only he can, I was that 13 year old girl again, sitting alone at my house (well this time I had booze with me- great improvement) after we moved to Israel and I had no one I could call a friend here, watching those great 5 guys on a video tape over and over again and feeling that I had someone I could trust. I remember the first time I saw the long version of IBLYF, where you get to see Jordans hands on the piano and thinking " life can't be that bad when I can see this".I don't think I can really explain what got into me back in the day , what was it in NKOTB that made me feel so special. I knew they were not "my friends" I knew they didn't even know I existed and I knew (well at least I thought I knew) that I will never get to see them and still, they were the closest thing to a best friends hug I had back then.
Time has gone by, 17 years have passed since that moment, I grew up, I changed, I made so many friends so easily, I traveled, I studied, I had good (and bad) real relationships, I met people, I went trough a few things in life but still, I have never felt the comfort I felt that time i first saw Jordan on the piano.
And last night, while I watched it, I was there again, only this time (Thank god for twitter)I finally had people with me (virtually) that could understand what I was talking about. People that didn't think it was weird I needed a box of Kleenex while watching a webcast. Last night, I was really crying like a baby when I watched IBLYF,I srsly was, but I had someone to share it with.. and I think that is one of the secrets of NKOTB- the BH sisterhood.
For a few weeks now I have been trying to understand what is it about NKOTB that make us feel so good, that make us be what we are- BLOCKHEADS. Coz there must be something larger than just the music or the looks or even they're personalities. I really think there must be a special something in the interaction between them. between them and us. between ourselves that makes them something larger than just a FREAKING HOT BOY BAND.
While I was making the " 5 bros& million sistahs" video I told some of you that I think NKOTB don't have even one ugly fan. Today I saw a video of a fan that was kissed for the first time in her life this year by Ddub,then it started to all come together, they make us feel good about ourselves. When we are around them, when they write to us, they make us feel like we are the most amazing women in the world. When Jordan looks into your eyes you feel like there's no one else he rather look at, when Donnie kisses you or talks to you the room is empty and all you can feel is him & you. When Jon hugs you (well thats if you don't die in his arms) you feel like he really cares, like that hug is as special for him as it is for you. And thats part of the secret, we all go trough life with our insecurities, with our things and sometimes we forget about ourselves, about the need to feel special, to feel a woman. Sure, most of us have partners, friends, husbands but in this crazy race that we call life sometimes we forget that we need that special attention, and that attention makes us all feel better about ourselves. Just look at pictures of us with the guys, the special sparkle we have in our eyes, and what amazes me the most- the guys have the same sparkle. It's like they really care that we feel good when we are around them. I know, the cynical in me tells me: thats they're job. But I'd like to think that this is more than just they're job, that when they say they care- they mean that.. and you know what? when I think about Jon and the way he talks/twiters to us I know it is not just they're job and I know it goes both ways. I know they enjoy the fact that now we can really appreciate them more than when we were teenagers, I feel like they know we all made sacrifices (small or big) to go see them and I just know that when they say thank you- they mean it from the bottom of they're hearts just as much as we do.
Another thing that amazes me is how real they are to us, while other bands will keep iT very politically correct, our guys get mad when we are dumb, they get sad when they are alone, they have fears, they get sick, they get tired and they don't hide that from us, they really let us be a part of they're lives just as much as we let them be a part of ours.
And I just feel that only certain people can "get that" like if you are a Blockhead it isn't just because you happen to like NKOTB. It is because you are willing to let yourself go with them. You are willing to open your heart and let all of it get in. And thats what I think it's the real secret of NKOTB- the BLOCKHEADS. I have meet lots of people in my life,from so many countries and in so many circumstances I can't even remember. But I NEVAH met a bunch of people so special as Blockheads. Really,I remember back in October, the first time I stepped(well, typed) to NKOTBFANS and I didn't even know what to say, what to write. Will people even read what I say? I was scared as I never been in a virtual community before. And from day one I felt like home, I felt that when I write something - someone that CARES will really read it. I was really new in the community when I decided that I must go to a concert but I couldn't order a VIP (damn ILAA- Israeli credit cards are not good enough for them) and then, without doubting me, without thinking I might be a weirdo Lydia told me she would buy it for me. She just trusted me the same way I trusted her without even knowing each other. Then I met more and more blockheads, people that really became a part of my life,people that know how to make me smile (BOOM.BANG.JK.ON.DECK), that know how to make me happy (Chubby JK in white jacket), people that were excited for me when I got to meet the guys- as much as I was excited for myself. Then I kind of entered the Jon board.. and that was scary as hell, for realz, I knew it was a big strong happy family there and those kind of situations are always hard for outsiders, but once again, Jon girls just as my hommies ,the Jordangirls, and just as any Blockhead I met made me feel at home right away,I think I even came to live in peace with the fact that I WANT A KNIGHT SANDWICH and theres nothing I can do about it!!
So I know Donnie said once that Jon is the "special sauce" but if you ask me Blockheads are the special sauce, Blockheads are the ones that make this ride so special, so much fun and yes, so emotional.When such an amazing bunch of people come together to celebrate they're love for 5 great guys- there's magic, and THAT IS THE SECRET OF NKOTB for me. You girls, me, and the guys, the interactions between us are what make us a family of 1,000,005 members.
So now this part of the ride is ending ( excuse me while I use anotah tissue), the guys are going back to they're lives, they are getting they're well deserved rest and I have this strange knot in my throat, Like theres so much I need to say and I can't find the words. I wish I could say just thank you , but I'm not sure thank you is enough to express all the feelings I have right now. I feel like no mattah what words will I choose to use- they wont be enough. It's like trying to explain to an outsider what a Jon or a Jordan hug feels like...What a Ddub kiss feels like sometimes words are not what you need to express how you feel.
Sure, I'm sad , sad that there will be no new youtubes to watch (shhhh don't tell Jon) sad that I didn't really get to be in a Full Service concert, sad that I don't know how long will it be till next time we hear from them, sad that this chapter is ovah.
But I'm also happy, happy that at 30 I got to make a childhood dream come true, happy that I got to have more dreams just at a time when I forgot what dreams are made of.I'm happy that I got to be myself with no masks, happy that I was a part of this journey , happy that for 5 short minutes I got to look into NKOTB eyes and feel that sparkle. happy that when I'll be gray and old I will have this amazing story to tell to my grandkids, a story about a bunch of crazy women and 5 crazy guys and dreams coming true.

So sure, right now I'm crying like a baby, I'm crying coz I have so many mixed feelings about this, but I know that in a few days when I'll readjust to life with NKOTB on break The happy part will be the one I will carry with me,because no matter how long it will take them to come back, no matter where it will happen, when or how I just know they will do it when the time and place are right not only for them but for us. And i know that when that magic happens again we will all be there once again, typing with Boston accent, using words only we can understand, laughing together, being excited about otah fans meeting the guys. I just know that this magic will never end.. even if takes us a lifetime to live it again- WE WILL GET ANOTAH NKOTB RIDE and it will be as amazing as this one.

I wanted to end this blog thanking some blockheads that became so close to me that I can truly call them friends, so this time I wont use nicknames, this time it's a real woman talking to her sistahs.
So thank you Lydia for helping me make my dream come true.Thank you Becks for being there while it happened and for not killing me for my over excitement.
Thank you Lee, Jackie,Brita,Kara,Kristy for being as excited as i was when i flew to Amsterdam. thank you for being there for me during all the preparations, thank you for creating that amazing place I still call home
Thank you Heather, Linda ( my virtual twin) Petra and Dawn or all the hours spent on Fans, for the laughter, for the excitement, for all the "Jk present" emails, Thank you for sharing so many emotions. so many (GUTTAH) thoughts and well.. just for making that community what it is
Thank you Christine, Mara, Danielle, Denisse & Joy for sharing the concert with me... it would have nevah been the same if you girls wouldn't be standing there.
Thank you To my DHL sistahs: Dyan, Khateleen and Serena, for making our frustration a great laugh, for getting into those boxes with me, for going along with whatever stupid idea i had..And a special Thank you to Serena for creating our new home on #69 Guttah street and for giving the keys to both Knights.
Thank you to all my Twitter friends , coz most of you are not followers or people I follow- YOU ARE FRIENDS

My new-old hobby and NKOTB

Since i have to spend tooo much time infront of a computer anyway, i decided i should do something useful and go back to my old hobby of guessing what ppl say while they take pictures..
this is the result so far

Jun 11, 2009

This one is for the non believers

I'm sick and tired of people laughing or giving me "that"face when i say NKOTB!!
That is it! I had it, I'm done with that kind of people.. if they are unable of seeing what i'm lucky enough to see then they can go to hell or even better .. they can stay in they're little so called "good music"universe they live at..

If you are a blockhead then I guess you know exaclty what I'm talking about.
If you are not a blockhead and you got this link from a blockhead trying to explain to you why she is happy, read it, give it a try..
If you are NKOTB- HI!!!!! *waves*

So, it's true, NKOTB are no Leonard Cohen, no Bob Dylan and sure no Beatles.They're music is not like that at all. I don't think they even try, they don't need to.And why should they?
So sure, people tell themselves, NKOTB are just a boyband talking about those weird things called.. hmm.. "feelings" those not sophisticated and shameless things called "feelings".Or even worse, ppl tell themselves and do that face again, when you listen to them you feel that thing.... the one that is only allowed for kids... what was it's name again? hmm.. "fun". After all we know, grownups like us are not supposed to listen to music that stimulates things like "feelings"or "fun"or that part in your body called "heart" Grownups should be listening to music only stimulating the brains, the kind of music that you need to listen to like 1000000 times to try to understand the deepest levels of it (I will save you the time.. at the end of the day Cohen, Dylan,Lennon they all talk about Love too). I mean people are mature- they listen to mature music and not to that boyband crap, right? Mature people base they're assumptions ( including the musical ones) on known facts.. and they know better than we, Blockheads, do- right? They know NKOTB is bad music because they have read musical handbooks, they have all composed at least 5 songs with such deep meaning sand with such level of complex that they are allowed to bring other ppl's music down- right? They know NKOTB have bad music because they took the time to go to a few concerts, to listen to the guys voices, and so they can tell that NKOTB are not good singers, after all they have seen them several times on stage dancing, singing, smiling, and making people happy so they know- thats is trash music. Mature people all took the time to meet each one of "the kids", they have listened to them talk, they have seen the videos, the twitts, the facetime talk- so they knwo for a fact that all NKOTB want is our money and that they are just using us to get money...
Because seriously , you wouldn't expect from mature people ( the kind that tells you what to do, who to like and what is "quality"and what is "trash") to base what they think about NKOTB only on a remote memory they have from the time they were 15.
Well, i have a few things to say to mature people:
Music is not about quality,a washing machine is about quality!! Music is about feelings and about soul and about all those "uncool" things. Music is about opening your heart and feeling that it is being touched. Music is about someone making magic out of your thoughts. Music is about LOVE, the love for a person, for life, for god, for your dog or even for chocolate (specially if Jon falls asleep on it). And sure, you can take a simple thing like love and make a "sophisticated"song that makes you wonder whats the song about, or you can keep it real, simple and sing a simple phrase as "It's not the way you look that brings me to my knees, is the way you look at me"(and yes, i know my friends are laughing and rolling eyes now). Sure, that line is simple, it doesn't have too many analogies, but it is not a literature quizz for crying outloud!! it is MUSIC.. and if you let it touch your soul.. you don't need too many big words!!.
People: it is OK for a band to get on stage and have fun with it's fans!! It doesn't mean they have nothing to offer so they cover it with sexy moves or smiles.. actually its the opposite, it means they are having fun and it means they know they're audience so well that they want to give them what they came for.. of course they could stand still on the stage, no lights,and say maybe "hi"when they get on stage and then "thank you"when they get off... you know.. like "serious musicians"do- but instead they choose to make each concert count. to make they're audience feel wanted ,feel happy, to let the audience's heart touch they're heart.. and thats something that only someone that is really willing to "be in the moment"can feel.

I'm sorry, but if you took the time to see Jordan singing "|'ll be loving you forever"and didn't feel your heart touched then you are not human my friend. You might be mature, you might be sophisticated but you forgot about being human...and then, it's not you the one that needs to feel sorry for me for "living in your NKOTB bubble"is me that needs to feel sorry for you for not letting your humanity come out, for you becoming a robot, a smart one, but still- a robot.

So the truth is that im tired of people telling me that my "obsession" is childish or uncool,or not normal. I;m tired of people rolling they're eyes when i talk about thing sthat make me happy, and yes, NKOTB, and all that comes with it (friends, songs, videos,twitter) make me happy, they touch my heart in ways sophisticated and mature people will never be able to do. they remind me I'm human, they remind me there is love in this world and they remind me that it is ok to dreama nd to follwo your dreams (even if your dreams are not world peace or saving humanity).
So ppl, if you are not capable of watching this video till the end, or if you are not capable of feeling anything while watching it. If you have a friend ( or that friend is me) that you think is loosing it for loving NKOTB...
Then im sorry for you, I;m sorry for the good times you are missing, I;m sorry for that beautiful part in life you are not dealing with and if you think me or my Blockhead sistahs are weird or sad or pathetic then I;m gonna ask you to politely FUCK OFF!!
Thanx for reading

(video belongs to Dori)


Of course they are not mine as IM NOT GETTING FULL SERVICE *snif* *snif* but those are my favorite videos so far.. you know... the ones that are creeping around in my head..
I'm still looking for a good FULL "IBLYF"video so if anyone has it.. plz share... SHARING IS CARING SISTAHS!!

The Life of a Blockhead

( Thank you Cheri for writing this)
We wake up in the morning, and we see their faces. They’re looking so good, everything’s in place!
No, really, being a blockhead is a very special, very rewarding experience. Unless you’re a Blockhead…you just don’t get it. It’s not like being a fan of say, Metallica, or 50 Cent. It’s not even like being a Fanilow. Blockheads are in a class of their own.
Blockheads get certain perks, like long lasting friendships, meet-ups, and after/before parties. We get videos and blogs. We even get cruises! The concerts are off the hook, and don’t get me started on the tweeting.
The day I realized this truly was something special was the day Donnie Wahlberg said in an interview “You know, all the fans keep telling us thank you for coming back, but they are the ones that deserve the thanks.”
That just blew me away. Us? Thanks? For what? Showing up? Without THEM, none of this would be possible. Without their families giving up time with their men. Without THEM giving up parts of their lives. And he wants to thank US? I just don’t get that. I can’t understand why us? They give up SO much, we just show up! The sacrifices they have made…
When you’re a blockhead you learn certain terminology like ‘Macanatomy’ and ‘Jontourage’. If you don’t know what ‘Jordangate’ or ‘Onlinegate’ is, you’re not a blockhead. Ever hear of the GML Divas? Do you see an owl and chuckle? How about Toni Spelelli or Watson? Don’t even get me started on TINK!
Do you see a picture of Joe in his Joker pants circa 1990 and think…omg, I have to post that in fashion disasters! (I would have picked the leather pants/net shirt combo, but to each their own…).
NKTV, “Let’s Get This” ,Jared, Twisted, “That’s how we roll”, Brownies, manscaping, “Leave Jon alone!”, right click SAVE!, mystery men, green lights, chocolate covered New Kids, palm fronds, bus stalking, the trinity church, HALLA!, facetime… all blockhead related. We get it. And that’s all that matters. We change words like Starbucks to Stahbucks. Supersoakers into supahsoakers, tractors into Tractahs. We rename body parts like ‘donnie’s onion’, the ‘macbooty’, we say ‘oh my Jord’ and ‘Oh Snap!’ Don’t understand? It’s ok. It’s a blockhead thing.
Above all that fun, there’s something more. There’s something better. There’s love. Love is the key to being a blockhead. You love your sistahs, you love the guys. And guess what? They love us back. And they make sure we know it! THAT’S where other groups, other celebs, fail. They just assume, they pass us by without even a glance. The guys…they look at us and wink. They smile, they do the LIP BITE and make us melt into a puddle of goo. And they do it knowing what effect it has. The power they hold in their hands! They say HI, they wave, they sign autographs and pose for pics. They blog, they take videos, they tweet, they shout out to us making us feel special. It never ends with them. Always something new, always above and beyond. THAT’S why we do it. THAT’S why we show up. THAT is what keeps us coming back for more!
So you think you know what a blockhead is? I doubt it. But it’s ok. You don’t NEED to understand. It’s our thing. It’s special to us. It’s sacred. We know we’re in our 30’s. We know we’re acting giddy and childish. It’s all in fun! It’s not real. It’s all in fun. It’s our escape. It’s OUR thing.
Watching twisted over and over, tweeting Joe 3000 times to get him to number one, writing radio stations angry letters because they wont play our guys, flaming a certain a-hole who talks smack on Jon, staying up until midnight to see what our next mission is, waiting for 6 days out in front of the Today Show studio IN THE RAIN so we can be sure to get the best seats… we do what we have to do… THEY do, we should too! It’s the LEAST we could do.
This has been an amazing year. Dreams were fulfilled; there were hugs and tears, smiles and laughter, music and love. It doesn’t get better than that folks. It just doesn’t. We’re a family, and if you missed out on it because of some image you have from 20 years ago…then I feel sorry for you. Make the jump, just do it. Let yourself go. You wont regret it! And hopefully this isn’t the end. If it is, then we’ve had an amazing year regardless. If it’s not, then it can only get better!!
Embrace that which is NKOTB.
Let’s get this!

Trying to keep it real.. Aka.. it might sound like I'm lecturing you but I'm not

Let me start saying that I feel so so bad for the girls that got concerts canceled/changed and now are unable to go. As far as I'm concerned it doesn't matter if it was your first of your 100000 show, I'm sure you had expectations, dreams and hopes about the concerts and the truth is that it might sound dramatic but I can't even imagine how bad you feel. For realz, I don't know how would I be feeling if my Amsterdam dream - concert back in February was canceled. I know some of you, specially the ones coming over seas and I know the last thing you wanna do is be mad at NKOTB.. I know my sistahs.. you girls are amazingly better than that.
I guess that's why I was so shocked to read some comments ppl had about this issue. Once again, you might say that it is easy to me to be in the "stay cool"position as I was not going to any concerts ( well.. unless Jordan flies me up there that is...*wink*) but well.. I feel like some things need to be said:
First of all I'm sure the change of plans was done really coz there was no other choice, as Jon said, I don't think the guys are happy about the changes either, and as a matter of fact I bet they are as mad as some of they're own fans.
But ppl please let's remember why are we here, we are here coz the LOVE for NKOTB brought us here, coz we LOVE the guys, we LOVE the music and most of all, and I feel like I'm speaking for like 99.9999% of the Blockheads: WE TRUST THE GUYS.
So we should know that if something like this happens it is coz there was really no other choice.
Lately I have read so many nasty comments to them about the "International fans issue"(Hello!!!!!! I am writing this freakin' blog from Israel and now tell me I'm not a dedicated fan just coz I wasn't born on Uncle's Sam land) And now this!??!!?
I really feel like the guys are really doing a lot for us. I mean, if they wanted to they could do like most bands do: just a quick "hello we are back and we want your money" Tour.. they could charge 150 usd for the regular tickets and they know they will still have sold out concerts. They could decide they Don't travel to Europe.. they could say "F#%ck you all!! we ain't going to Australia just coz a couple of crazy fans want us there"(Love you Australians!!!!) And hell!! they could be spending the summer with they're families, recording solo records, filming, resting and living the good life..
They are not doing all that and maybe I am too naive (If you know me you know you can call me lot of things but naive ain't one of them) But i really believe from deep in my heart that the guys do everything that they do just coz they wanna give back, coz when they say that fans are the 6th member of the group they mean that.
I really feel like sometimes us, the fans, get too demanding and we forget that they don't OWE us anything. They don't have to do like over 100 concerts in less than a year to make us happy... they do it coz THEY CARE... They don't have to give away tickets , they do it coz THEY CARE. they don't have to twitter to keep us happy when they are with they're families... BUT THEY DO
That, my fellow blockheads is FREAKIN' LOVE!!!
And for me NKOTB always has been about the love, and I believe that for 99.9999% of all of us so please please let's not allow the 0.0000001% ruin this amazing journey for us.
I'm sorry if I sound like I'm lecturing but This is what I had in mind when I woke up this morning and since this is my blog.. i get to write whatever i feel like writing ;-)
Lots of Love to my fellow Blockheads.. specially to the ones that got they're dream crushed...
I do believe you will still get your chance to fulfill your dream... good things happen.. I mean.. did you think 2 years ago that you will ever get to listen to a new NKOTB album? Did I think a year ago that I will be able to go see the guys? and yet.. GOOD THINGS DID HAPPEN..
In Hebrew we say that everything happens for a reason and that bad things happen only to let us enjoy the good stuff that comes after.. and well...
Ok, enough preaching...

no words needed...

and my fav:

NKOTB rock the Today Show (again!!)

It's been a while since I last posted.. i guess Twitter took over my life.. like .. well.. like it has done with all of your lives ...
I just wanted to post the videos from the Today Show and to say that it looks like the guys were amazing there... not only they look good and sounded good as always but they gave away tickets for fans to go see them this summer and thats amazing!!!!
Oh!! and of course Jordan twittered a few hours ago that the international fans will be included in the next contest..
Jk baby, get ready coz im coming ovah!!!



Apr 30, 2009

Jordan is flying you to NY to see the "Today Show".. for realz!!! Aka: why the hell am I not a USA citizen!??!

So the guys are giving back for real! First it was Donnie with the twisted video thing and soon WE will get to pick how's going to meet him in Boston and now Jordan - I'm to sexy for my shirt but i won't take it off till Yael gets here- Knight is gonna pick one fan and actually pay for her ticket to NY AND FOR THE HOTEL ROOM IN HIS OWN WORDS "SPEND THE NIGHT ON ME"...
How amazing is that!??! the fact that they are actually doing this? they don't have to do it, they will keep on being as popular as they are now without doing it. They will keep having sold out concerts but yet they decide to go ahead and do it.. and that's what makes them so special.
Now, I've read some twitters being mad about the fact that it is only open for US citizens. I really don't see why. I'm not a USA citizen but I'm happy that SOMEONE will get to go and enjoy that... just THINK POSITIVE PPL!!!

And now to the real good stuff: look how calm he looks here.. don't you wanna just go and well.. hm.. ok I'll keep my thoughts to myself

A request from my fellow Blockheads

So it is this time of the year again, when our boys have they're well deserved time off and we get to deal with our NKOTB withdrawals.
I remember last time they where on a break, a few months ago, Jordan posted on myspace something about people picking into his windows at home and also disturbing his mother. Personally I think that people that do that kind of things are sick , not to mention breaking the most important right a human being (and as amazingly gorgeous as our boys are-they are still human) has: the right for privacy.
Anyways, I'm writing this to request from all of us to please behave during those few weeks the guys have to spend with they're families.Please, let's give them the space they need. Let's let them live some kind of normal life.
I don't know about you but I want them here for a long ride and not to get sick and tired of crazy fans after the summer tour. I want them to stay around for a while but in order to do so , the guys need ( i think) they're time off.
Can you imagine how hard it must be for a father of 2 young kids to be spending most of this year away from home, not seeing his kids grow, not dealing with homework, missing soccer games, etc?. I can only imagine the sacrifice they are doing to spend so much time making US happy.
Sure, I'm not naive, I know this is they're job, i know this is the deal they all signed for, but as they said several times, they don't NEED this, they could all live happily and quietly at home but instead they choose to come back, and they choose to add more dates when we never dreamed about it, they choose to spend time with us, to let us take pictures, talk to us, for crying out loud- they are freaking twittering us!!
Now don't get me wrong, I think that while they are on tour the terms change, when they are on tour it is OK to be a crazy bus stalker ( in Jon words) it is OK to ask for a picture and a autograph (ASK- not take if you don't ASK), I'm not gonna lie to you,if you read my blog you know that I did take pics with them in Amsterdam and I did meet them at the hotel, but never in a disrespectful way and NEVER when they where on they're time off. But I think that when they are not on tour it is they're own private time. A time to dedicate to they're families, they're other jobs... etc.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that if we want them around for a long time we need to respect they're rights as human beings and just let them be while they are not on tour...
I just don't want them to get tired of "too much"attention and make us wait for another 15 years to go see them on stage,
And you know what? even more.. i just don't want 5 people i love so much to feel uncomfortable or intimidated.. i want them to enjoy this journey as much as I am enjoying it (and i have only been to 1 concert) and I want them to be able to have grown-up lives.
And another thing: I'm so proud to call myself a Blockhead, srsly, only a few times in life you get to be a part of such an amazing group of ppl and i would hate it if the great prestige we have will be ruined by some crazy ppl behaving like stupid 12 year old fans ( and I'm not saying all 12 year olds are stupid).
So plz, let's keep it real and let's have fun!!!!
Long live the Block!!

Often when we are performing the slow jam medley, I think of all the
legends that came before us- Temptations, 4 Tops, Jackson 5, New

At that moment in the show, the lights are dim, mostly spot lights so
it’s very moody and I think of all the tours and road shows that have
come before us. There is something so special about the sound and
moves of those groups- the whole thing really takes me back to the
soulful 60’s and 70’s- a classic time of showmanship that is a lost art.
It’s a privilege to, in our own way, carry that torch.
I wonder, in this day and age of instant everything, will the flame go
out or will we be lucky enough to see it passed along.

Hi everyone,
Sorry I haven’t posted a blog in awhile, but this tour has been moving at such a fast pace. My daughters and Dad got to come out and see 5 shows in a row. They had the time of their lives. They are road warriors and love every part of being on the road. I can’t put into words how much it has meant to me to be able to share this experience with all my kids. This would not be possible without you guys. So from the bottom of my heart thank you.

Love always

Joe's Blog- another twitter addict

Monday, April 13th, 2009

How ’bout a good ol’ fashioned blog.

This feels like using a rotary phone compared to twitter. Wow! I can
actually finish my thought here and not be sweating to death trying to
get it all in in a hundred and forty characters. Aaahhhh, this is nice.
Hmmm… Let me take a moment and collect my thoughts- what a novelty.
Well, let me see… We had another amazing show in Saskatoonia
( that’s what I like to call it- I add an (ia) to it).
I was hit by a recurring thought as I looked into the eyes of a girl
in the front row. How will I ever explain to each of you what it means
to be able to do what I do for such an audience? It’s such a blessing.
It pushes me to do more. To want more. To be all the things I think I
can be. And I thought of how I ‘get off’ on meeting people that to me
really ‘get it.’ There is a diverse group of people that we attract
and it mirrors the diversity of this group. And when you find those
moments with people when you are on the same page- whether its a look
or a comment or a joke or a story- and you really connect… Well, it’s
like sex to me. It’s that good. And it turns me on and it makes me want
Now put that in your twit and smoke it.

Interview/article.... me likes it much much

By Shanon Cook

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Twenty years ago, when the New Kids on The Block were wearing their hair almost as high as their fame, the music business was a vastly different animal. There was no "American Idol." No such thing as a download, legal or otherwise. People collected posters, not ringtones.
But it appears something has carried over from that distant era. Something loud, something jumpy, something ready to roar: Blockheads (or to those not familiar with boy band lingo, fans of New Kids on the Block).

As a "look who's laughing now" to those who thought reuniting for a new album and tour was a ridiculous idea, the group's past followers came out in droves last year to see Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood give some new choreography a whirl at concert venues around the world.

"I think a special thing happened out there on the road," Wahlberg said. "I think the fans came back not quite knowing what to expect but determined to have a great time. And we came back not quite knowing what to expect [but] determined to have a great time and determined to put on a great show. And I think we all got there and became teenagers again. It was pretty cool." Video Watch the New Kids up to old tricks »

So cool that the band has announced a whole new set of North American concert dates they're calling the "Full Service" tour. The 34-stop trek kicks off in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 28 and winds up in Houston, Texas, on July 18. Tickets go on sale Friday.

But before the tour, New Kids on the Block will hit the high seas -- along with boatloads of Blockheads -- for a three-day concert cruise in the Bahamas in mid-May.
"The cruise is the one area where we've completely lost our minds," Wahlberg said. "We're going to have to answer to thousands of fans on the boat. It's going to be insane."

But perhaps not as insane as things might've been if this were still the '80s. The band members -- now 40ish, and all but one of them fathers -- concede that they've mellowed considerably, and so has their 30-something female fan base.

"We didn't just go completely bonkers and stop being adults," Wahlberg said of the 2008 tour. "The fans didn't hang out in front of the hotel, singing songs for 20 hours straight. They just got hotel rooms and hung out in the lobby and met us for drinks at the bar."

Cheers to that.

New Kids on the Block recently hung out with CNN and talked about surprising the skeptics, the boy-band stigma and how the music business has changed in the 15 years since they disbanded. The following is an edited version of the interview.

CNN: What's the biggest change you've noticed in the music business?

Joey McIntyre: The music business has changed incredibly. There used to be 50 record companies. Now there's only three, and it's just getting smaller and smaller. But then again, you have the Internet, so anybody who has music can get it out there.

Jordan Knight: We also come from an era where getting on stage and performing, really honing the craft of performing on stage, was important. So lucky for us we have that background, and even though record sales are down, concert ticket sales are up, and that favors us, because that's what we mainly like to do. We like to perform.

CNN: When you left the spotlight, bands like 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys moved in and flourished. Was it difficult for you to watch them take the torch and run with it?

Donnie Wahlberg: I found no bother in other boy bands taking the spotlight for a number of reasons: A, I was not interested in that spotlight myself. B, it was their time. C, we weren't even in a band anymore. I was doing other things ...

McIntyre: It sounds like a comedy skit where we're furious over it!

Wahlberg: Yeah, like "Damn it! Why are they being so successful?"

McIntyre: "We've got to find a way to ruin it!"

Wahlberg: When we came out, there was MTV, and that was it. And there wasn't room for another band like us. ... And when we went away, the music business changed. Suddenly, there were all these different avenues and outlets. ... So you could have three, four, five boy bands, and they could all be very successful. And that was more fascinating to me than anything else.

Anybody who was as successful as those guys were -- be it Backstreet or 'N Sync -- it takes so much hard work to be successful. I can only respect [that]. We had a backlash on us, so to come out as a boy band after us and to have the perseverance to succeed and overcome a lot of doors that were closed from people hating on us ... they deserve credit for that. And we deserve credit now for coming back and overcoming hurdles that are there now for us.

CNN: What are the biggest hurdles?

Wahlberg: The whole concept of us coming back, honestly, was met with skepticism by a lot of people. ... All the record companies thought when (other boy bands) were thriving, that was the time that we should come back. But it was their time; it wasn't our time. ...

The fact that 90 percent of the people who discussed this with us thought it was crazy or thought we'd do a barnstorming tour at best, that in itself is a hurdle, because we had to walk away. We had to all make a commitment to do this. We all had things in our lives that we were doing, that we were committed to. ...

But we believed, and fortunately the fans believed and came back in bigger numbers than we ever imagined and made a lot of people look wrong. It even surprised us.

CNN: Boy bands traditionally get a bit of a hard rap, don't they? You're often dismissed as overly choreographed, a little bit cheesy.

Wahlberg: I think it's easy to criticize things that you maybe don't quite know the story on. But the reality is, we're in the music business. John Mayer might be able to play the guitar better than any of us ... but we all signed record contracts. We've all made a decision to make our career in this business. So to scoff at people because they do something different or don't do what you would do is silly.

Fortunately, we haven't really found that this time around. I think people have come to understand that maybe we're a little bit different ... a little bit more of a grass-roots band than people ever gave us credit for. We weren't picked out of thousands of people. It was a very real story, how we came together.

CNN: Which one of you has changed the most?

Knight: I don't think any of us have really changed. We've matured; we've mellowed a bit. We have more wisdom, but personality-wise, we're all the same and it's good to see. And that's what made us in the past, and that's what makes us now.
anny Wood: I think the change you would see (is when) each of us (is) individually at home with our kids and our family lives. But when we get together, it's all still the same.

Wahlberg: Jon has a British accent now. Danny won't take commercial airliners anymore. Jordan only greets fans with gloves. (They all laugh.) It's a joke!

How i met our New Kids on the Block (aka: I'm not stalking, just following) PART V

I know.. it took me waaaaay to long to post this part but hey! I've waited freaking 14 years to see the guys.. you can wait a month...OK OK back to the story

So I enter the room and the first thing I see is Jordan , I know I walked by Joe and Danny, I know Jon looked at me and that Donnie was there but all I Could see was Jordan.. I saw him, he saw me walking straight to him and he opened his arms just like I always dreamed of... so I took that as an Invitation and give him a hug and he was hugging me really tight so I had to say something.... All I could think about was "oh no!! he is hugging me coz he thinks I'm from the group that is leaving now so it is a Goodbye hug"... and since I'm well known by not being able to shut my mouth and just letting all my thoughts out all I said was "Ohh this is a Hello hug coz I'm from the new group and not a goodbye one"(once again....someone should teach me to keep it shut!!) then he looked at me and I told him "I have a shirt for you"so he looked at my shirt and asked "why should I beware"and I told him "coz I have a sign for you"he laughed and said "ohh" and I asked if I could stand by him for the picture and he smiled and said "sure"! (I almost died there.. technically he just said yes to something I offered.. who the hell cares it is a picture.... I'm sure I would have offered something naughty and he would have said YES.... OH MY GOD!!! I got a yes from Jordan knight).
Then I went to Donnie coz he was the closest and I said hi, he said Hi and it was picture time... so Jordan kind of brought me towards him (and I didn't die!!) and just when the picture was about to be taken one of the girls from the night before looked at me and said "ohh I have no place to stand"and I was like "you are not taking my man!!! he just said yes to me!!"(good thing I didn't say that out loud.. so I do have some self control after all) and she was looking at me and Jordan coz I knew from last night thats where she wanted to stand.. and Jordan actually pulled me towards him a bit ( and I think I stopped breathing for a while) CLICK first picture.. then CLICK second one....
The ILAA person tells us its time to get out...

Now I have to stop the story and go a bit backwards... When I was entering the room I heard Jon saying really out loud "Oh! Israel is in the house"but I was too focused on Jordan so I didn't even say hello to him... So now, when we were asked to leave the room I had to do something about my sexy in-law..... Ok back to the story...

So the ILAA ppl want us out .. but I couldn't care less.. I went straight to Jon, who opened his arms again and I hugged him and right there... I whispered to his ear.... I had so many things in mind to whisper there.. most of them are not decent enough to be posted here but all my brilliant mind came up with was "You know you were my first love? my dad used to hate you"and he laughed ( I must learn to keep my mouth shut.... I really should)..
On my way out I stopped by Jordan again, another short hug, I said "thank you"he looked at me and said "No, thank you"and then I happily died...
But I guess I was resuscitated due to all my good acts in my life ( hm.... yeah... good acts) and I found myself running like crazy with my friends to catch a good spot... and we did!!! We stood by the stage.. there was only one woman separating me from the fence... ( and there was another one on my side trying to kill me and pushing me but hey!!!! no one was gonna make me stand far from Jordan after he gave me the "yes"!!!)..
There we were standing for two hours waiting for the concert to start when I realized that I cheated on Jordan with his brother... srsly....... I had them both there and I whispered to Jon's ear.... I hope Jordan didn't see it... :-)
The concert was amazing, as far as I am concerned it was the best night I had in I -can't -remember- how- long. the guys were great, funny and teasing us all the time.
During "games"I knew it was time to put my sign in good use and indeed .. Jordan saw it and laughed, then Donnie saw it and laughed.. and I was so happy. Srsly. after all that long wait, all the excitement, the flight, the stalking and the freaking cold I was at an NKOTB CONCERT!!! I was making a dream come true.. I don't know how many of you got to feel what it is to make a dream come true but it is something you can't really explain with words.. just amazing..
The concert went on and Jordan didn't take off his shirt, sure, I got some great eye contact (specially during summertime) and I got a wink by Jon ( Shh... Jon, you wink like that one more time and Jordan will realize we are having a little adventure!!)
So the concert was done.. and I was still like a 16 year old kid that took 1000 speeds..... srsly. I was so hyper....
On the taxi on our way to the hotel I started to realize how lucky I was, making a dream come true, meeting the guys, sharing it with great friends I met on this amazing NKOTB journey. really I felt like my adventure was complete, like I got more than I ever expected, I was really willing to go home and call myself the happiest woman alive... but the night had one last good surprise for me...
yep... to be continued
BTY, if you haven't seen this yet.... between 3:33- 3:43 you can see Jordan and Donnie looking at my sign and laughing... dunno who's the girl that took this video but she was standing a few rows behind me.. THANK YOU GIRL!!!
