Yes. I'm talking about the Backstreet Boys! C'mon, don't get that look on your eyes. You KNOW that whenever you caught one of their songs that sounded more like dance than crooning, that you silently followed the beats in your head. You liked them, even if your mind screamed, "Noooooo!"

*snicker* I liked them. A lot. But I was also like 11 when I got hooked. I was in love with Nick Carter. I have no clue why, but I guess it has to do with fledging sexuality looking for a safe outlet. Blonde and thin must've been it, since I also had a thing for Leo Dicaprio. >_> But when my interest began shifting to AJ, it was the end of my realiance on pop music. AJ represented the music I began to prefer...and I gave away my Backstreet Boys tapes.

Now, however, I think Kevin is good looking. Should get rid of that damned goatee (what is it with somewhat good looking guys and stupid goatees??), but the square jaw makes him look sooo masculine. ;P

I saw Behind the Music: Backstreet Boys today, but I'm not entirely sure why I watched it. But, despite my suspcion of pop or anything that results in mass hysteria, I still think they CAN sing (better than some of these rock groups that pop up, even) and some of their older songs are still...worth listening to. >_< I'm shocked!

So, c'mon, confess your deepest sins when it comes to falling in line with the rest of the public. Maybe you're so nuts for Star Wars, you stood in line for every ticket days before they were on sale. Maybe the Spice Girls really revved your engine. Confess! Battie won't tell. ;)

I, too, thought Nick was the cute one. :)

I have a fondness for Hanson, not because Taylor was cute (or he would be when he grew up), but their ascendancy heralded the end of grunge, for which I will always be grateful.

Sigh. Okay... Pamela Anderson looks cute naked. "Stop in the name of love" is a cute catchy tune. And Taluluwuluwhatserface's "Downtown" is neat.

That said, I want to cover the backstreet boys under a tard and skwish them all with a hammer. ....*grrrrrr*...

Oh, you KNOW you secretly like some of their tunes. Damn those catchy pop beats.

Here's an even deeper sin for me: On my old computer, I deliberately downloaded a Spice Girls song and somewhat regularly listened to it. Think it was called "Mother." The worse thing...it sometimes made me cry. >_>

And I may download it again.

I'm way too old to consider the backstreet boys anything but an annoyance. Twylala Twerp or what ever her name was is my backstreet boys.

I too disliked the Backstreet Boys and they were "my time". There was an N'Sync song that I liked and some of Justin Timberlake songs that I enjoyed. When I was a REAL young one I LOVED New Kids on the Block.

Honestly though the only reason I posted in this thread is because I want to hijack it. (sorry) Just noticed that there is an Anime Convention in Canada on the 26th and the main speakers are Kirby Morrow and Richard Ian Cox (Miroku and Inuyasha from Inuyasha) and I was thinking hmmmm, I wonder what they look like so i did a search and found out... THEY ARE HOT! I find that very few anime voice actors are not very attractive so when I was completely in awe when I discovered there attractiveness and I just wanted to share my awe with my GC friends, so there it is. PS-Kirby Morrow is really really hot. You have no idea how much hotter a person can be when you already considered their animated alter-ego to be attractive. Whoa, celibacy not going too well right now.

I hated N'Sync. Not only did I think they sounded like boys, rather than men, and sissies to boot! I also thought all they did was copy the Backstreet Boys, which was disgusting. Seriously though, there's a song NS did that sounds EXACTLY like a BB song.

See, why is my thread being hijacked!? What am, a weakling to be taken advantage of?! Heh.

Kirby Morrow is cute in black&white, but in color he's just a skinny white dude. You must like white guys. >:P ^_^ No big deal...I tend to like everything BUT white guys, hahaha. Pity, really. >:P

Btw, Greg Ayres is just a smidgen cuter in b&w, even if he does look gay. Lmao. And he's from Houston. Hmmm. Didn't know Texans had talent. ;) And it turns out his list of works is bigger than I thought...Gantz, Pretear, Saiyuki, Chrono Crusade, Samurai 7, Gunslinger Girl, Burst Angel, DNAngel, Spiral, Peacemaker, Saint Seiya, Steel Angel Kurumi, Super Gals, Full Metal Panic, Those Who Hunt Elves II, and an almost-hentai, Dragon Knight. ^_^ And a bunch of others I'm not familiar with. I'm sure many are just minor voice roles.

I do have a preference for white guys I guess. That just comes from living in Duluth Minnesota where everyone was white except you. I saw a picture of him in color and he looked pretty hot in that one too. Wow I sound completely like a high school valley girl right now, "Oh my God, he was like totally hot!" There was another picture of him where he had almost neon yellow hair and I thought "Yikes!" He looked like a leukemia patient.
Anyhow there are a lot of voice actors in TX. The dubbing for Full Metal Alchemist takes place in Fort "Something". I can't remember which fort. :) One of the people I work with said his friend does the voice acting for a couple of the characters on FMA. (I know this guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy!)
Is that sad that I like white guys? I feel like I am a disappointment to you now. Skinny white guys make the best cute nerds though! *sigh*

No, not at all (speaketh/writeth someone who has a white boyfriend).

I'm sure that's not the case. Right, Battie?

This reminds me of the Bill Gates/nerds discussion I had with AFleming. Does the nerd in question has to wear glasses to be cute for you, shiori?

Of course, the skinny white nerd just may grow up to be a middle-aged paunchy man with a receding hair line without loads of stock options and a Ferrari.

No not at all. Basically I think they are cute and others think they are nerdy. Basically the guys I like are tall and skinny, generally clean and attractive, but their personality comes across as a little geekish. Glasses are optional. This is, in general, my dream guy. Which is probably why he doesn't yet exist. Also why I can't give an example of someone famous that fits this description. Any help out there?

You make it sound like it should be a sad thing to be a white guy -- especially a fat one.

Think Philip Seymour Hoffman or William H. Macy, perhaps.

Hmmph. As I've described myself as a middle-aged paunchy guy with a receding hair line and as I've been, er, underemployed for the last two and a half years, and as IronS and I seem to be on an ebb, I was wondering if she was refering to *gulp* me.

Heh, back during New Kids on the block days.. .everyone *guy wise* in my school would trash them left and right... but admit that a couple of their SONGS.. .were good.

explains my way of thinking when it comes to music: Like a song for what it is; not who sings it.

LOL! Nah, not a disappointment. I sometimes like white guys. When they're tattooed to the gills. Lmao. I keep seeing this guy, Carey Hart, on TV. First on Inked, and again flipping channels (found him on VH1). He shouldn't be hot...but dayum!

I met this guy on the net once who lived not too far from me (we didn't meet). Big guy...sleeves...and not really what I'd call handsome (though not ugly either--another girl called him "scary"). But... *shame* I had the hots for him briefly. :P Nice guy, actually. >:D

But usually, I go for dark-skinned guys. And while it's perfectly fine to like a nerdy dude, some people would be shocked to here that...well...I can see a lot of sexy in a guy who has a little more weight on than he should. *gasp* I was at a resturant one day, and the guy taking my money was a "beefy" Hispanic. I had to force myself not to hit on him. :P Maybe it has to do with my mom's friends and boyfriends usually being beefy bikers? *shudder* I'd hate to think HER choices are influencing MINE. (Well, at least none of her buddies were as tattooed as I like them, rotfl.)

Do you know, in my immediate area, I know five anime-fans? It shocks me!

Back on topic: Another guilty secret.

Sometimes...I actually LIKE Spam sandwiches.

And yesterday I had a bad idea. I decided something with "Instant" on the box might actually taste good. Riiiight.

As much as your paranoia demands it, not everything's about you. :P I was still thinking of Bill Gates, just without money. :)

But our surroundings do affect us. My bf is always grumbling that my preference for clean-shaven guys has a lot to do with the lack of facial hair on the faces of my male relatives when I was growing up.
