    Ask and ye shall receive.

    So to start this thread, I have a little story. When I was in 5th grade, we had to write letters from Santa for one of the 1st grade classes at my school. The girl who's letter I got asked for the NKOTB tape with the song 'Funky Funky Xmas' on it. Of course, she omitted the 'n'. And for a bunch of 5th graders? this was about as scandalous as it got (at least where I grew up)

    So that's my story sharing time. There will be more.. And perhaps more relevant. Or perhaps not..

    after watching that i found out that my wife was a big jordan fan. that surprised me. i always pegged her as a "joey" type girl. we're going to have to talk about what other misconceptions i have of her after these years together. geez, you think you know someone.

    Per the comments on that video, sounds like he was struggling with panic attacks. More here from People magazine.

    So Xmav and I were at the same NKOTB concert... didn't see that one coming

    I just went Oct 24th to Chicago, did I mention they're all grown up now, lol.

    Here's my input:
    Joey - no way, he was center of attention and too much of a goody-goody, pretty boy
    Jordan - TOO pretty
    John - He's too quiet, but I have my own theories on that, but I'll keep them to myself
    Danny :p - Yes, Mr. muscles, just joe cool, bops along to the rhythm and doesn't have to try to look cool dancing, he's got his groove on. He's a grown man, not a little boy.
    Donnie :p - Yes, he's got the tougher bad boy image, yet gets funky and can sing. He's a grown man.

    :* [face_love] Danny or Donnie, either one!!! And between Mark or Donnie? Again, either one! Can ya feel it baby? I can too ;)

    Did everyone catch Donnie in The Sixth Sense? He lost a lot of weight to play that part.

    That was the first time I had seen him since NKOTB. I had no idea he had started acting. I believe it was BDZ who pointed him out to me. Interesting fact from Wiki:

    "Wahlberg received attention for his role in the 1999 film The Sixth Sense, playing the distraught patient of Bruce Willis's character in the opening sequence. This role was originally intended for a 13-year-old boy until Wahlberg met with writer and director M. Night Shyamalan to inquire about obtaining the rights for a theatre production and ended up getting the pivotal role."

    I don't remember this - is there a YouTube clip available, or even a still shot, for reference?
