Moving Day

Attention, faithful Tweenage followers (all 12 of you): Tweenage Wasteland is moving! Specifically, to Wordpress, 'cause we like it better. Our new home is:

(It's pink! It's got Zef posing ridiculously! What's not to love?)

For those of you who follow our LJ feed, you don't need to worry about a thang, since it's been updated to point to the new blog. Huzzah! If, however, you're following us directly from our RSS feed, we ask that you resubscribe over here.

For those of you who found us by Googling "selena gomez baby pictures," you can continue to do so, and we will continue to not have any. Sorry.

And for those of you who want me to shut up and give you that link again, it's:

See you there!

Friday Flashback: Boyz II Men

Every frame of this video is more hilarious than the last.

Boyz II Men: I'll Make Love to You (1994)

It puts his love of a terrible mustache to good use, but it's the shorts that really make the costume. I don't say this often, but well played, Zac Efron. Well played.

"My name is Makenzie, and I'm 25 and three quarters."

As much as I love Tizz, I'm actually kind of glad Hellcats was canceled, because maybe she'll go back to being comedy. And you guys, she is HILARIOUS.

So yesterday your lovable Tweenage bloggers went to see Big Time Rush at Six Flags:

(Can you see us? We're on the left.)

Now, we've ragged on their musical abilities in the past. And the last time Becky saw them in concert was...not good. So we weren't expecting much from the band last night. We were just going because we love them, and hey, Six Flags!

You guys. They were actually...really kind of good? I know, we were surprised too!

I mean, the choreography and the execution thereof was subpar, as usual, but they were actually singing (even Nsync didn't always do that!) and they all sounded good! Even Logan! Even James, who was clearly too exhausted from running and jumping and "dancing" to oversing the way he usually does. It turns out we were right - when he doesn't oversing, he's got a lovely voice!

They even sat down and performed acoustic versions of three songs ("Stuck," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," which baffled the small children, and "Worldwide"). "Worldwide" is so much better when it's acoustic, you guys! They've learned how to harmonize! And Becky only wanted to stab James a little during "I Want to Hold Your Hand!" (She has Feelings about Beatles covers.) Also, they invited a little girl up onstage for "Worldwide" because it was her seventh birthday and sang it to her and you could hear little popping noises throughout the crowd as everyone's ovaries exploded. EVEN THE DUDES'.

It was also a pretty extensive set - they played everything on the album except for the two duets and "Oh Yeah" (thanks for that, boys), plus "Famous," "Any Kind of Guy" (really, though?), the aforementioned Beatles cover, and "If I Ruled the World." I consider 13 songs good concert-going value.

Other things to note:
  • Logan is still refusing to attempt to learn to dance. STOP THAT, LOGAN.
  • Kendall was wearing a boater and suspenders. Jess is torn between horrified laughter and kind of being super attracted to him. She's very conflicted.
  • Becky has not been giving James Maslow's hips enough credit. They don't lie!
  • CARLOS. Oh my goodness, y'all, Carlos Pena is a perfect human being. He had the best stage presence, he was completely adorable with the little girl, his voice is gorgeous and for once was free of all the post-production nonsense they slap onto it in the studio, he's the sharpest dancer, and he is THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN PULL OFF WEARING A HAT. We are both nearly 30 and we were chinhandsing in his general direction all night. CARLOS, YOU'RE THE BEST ONE.
  • There is nothing more adorable than flocks of children (of both genders!) running around a theme park in homemade BTR shirts.
In conclusion, Big Time Rush is actually kind of awesome live, and we are totally going to see them again next time they tour. But they should leave the hats at home.

Except Carlos.

(He's the best one.)

Maybe he's gunning for a role in the Gilligan's Island remake.

I...I don't even know what to say to this. Drake, why do you want to make me sad?

blast from the past

Just for Jess: This turned up on my tumblr dashboard today...

"Awesome" is a totally valid topic of conversation.
