it's a sad day for my 16-year old self

"new kids on the block had a bunch of hits"....but i never loved anyone from NKOTB. but i did love me some LFO as a wee one.

okay, i was 16...but still.
so sad day when u found out this dude, one rich cronin, original lyte funky one, died after a battle with leukemia.

i mean...yes, the song was lame. but we LOVED IT. i still kinda love it...and know all the words.


who DOESN'T like it when the girls stop by for the summer??

true story....my junior year in high school....LFO was in concert in my hometown. and me, and 2 of my friends went to WALMART, and stood in line for at least 2 hours...to meet them. i have a picture somewhere at my parent's house with each member of LFO. i was always a brad girl, personally.

but yes, i have gotten lyte and funky life and in person with LFO...and in case you were wondering, they opened for blessed union of souls.

most random. pairing. EVER.

so, rich....we salute you and your lyrical genius. plus, you dated jennifer love hewitt, and sang my favorite song of yours about her.

Awww that's really sad. I was never really a HUGE fan of either NKOTB or LFO, but they did have a couple songs I liked.

I was the weird kid listening to Enya and World Party.
