Some Crushes Never Die...

I just did something that most of you will probably laugh at.

I entered my band in a contest to open for the Hanson brothers when they come through town this summer.

Yes, they are still together. Yes, apparently they play songs other than "Mmmbop" now, though I have not actively sought out their music since 1997. I think they maybe even got haircuts since then (blasphemy, I know). I think Taylor is still probably the "cute one," even though he got married.

Zack is probably still single though. He was always the one I loved anyway. My cousin had called permanent dibs on Taylor and Issac was just plain ugly. But Zach rocked the drums and was all kinds of adorable. He was 13 when I was about 10, so it always seemed like things could work out between us. Too bad he never knew I existed.

Chances are, nothing will come of the contest. But when my daily Internet surfing led me to a page that said "CLICK HERE TO OPEN FOR HANSON IN YOUR HOMETOWN," the part of me that is still 10 years old got really excited.

And now I'm off to dig out my copy of "Middle of Nowhere" (one of the first CDs I ever bought!) and relive the fourth grade. Peace out.


  1. They all got married because they're super religious. They all have a million kids too. It's creepy as hell.

  2. Even Zach got married?! Nooooooo!

  3. Google that shit - it's crazy.

    Taylor has like 4 kids.

  4. Ack. I just googled it. And you're right - Zac is married. That breaks my heart.

  5. Hanson was my religion until puberty was over. I saw them in concert 3 times, all of which post-Middle of Nowhere. My best friend was OBSESSED and then randomly met them on a plane once and nearly died. Their music is actually pretty good right now, you should check it out. But they are all married. Sad I guess?

  6. Haha wow, I'm a little jealous that you've seen them 3 times. I had three of their albums back in the day (still have them actually - too good to get rid of) but never got the chance to see them live. I kinda lost track of them after "Three Car Garage." Maybe I'll check out their newer stuff.

    Btw, while we're on the topic I have to ask - Issac, Taylor, or Zac?
    (Even though they're all married now so fantasizing about dating them isn't as fun as it used to be...)


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
