The Spice Girls story

In case you're curious what happened to last week's desperate plea for Spice Girls fans, here is a link to the article, which ran in Thursday's LIVE section.

Thanks again for coming through when I needed you, guys. 

Side note: I'll come clean with all of you.

I was once a Spice Girls fan.

It was 8th grade, I thought they were hot and bought Spice.

So there. I said it. 

And you know what?

I still think "Wannabe" is a fun pop song.

Two points for honesty, Sam.

So, which one was your favorite?

Hey, if you're going in here, you might as well go all the way, right?

It's gonna take a long time to repair your street cred now and restore your hipster stock. Ouch.

tell me that picture is from a wax museum, because if it isn't that's just way too scary to look at.

It's OK Sam...we all have our embarrassing, youthful music crushes. You're still one of my favorite of-the-moment music sources.

As long as it's Sunday morning, I may as well confess my 8th grade musical crush....David Cassidy.

You can get up off the floor now.

My parents took me and my best friend to see him at Merriweather. He was wearing a white leather jumpsuit...with the summer! The place was packed with screaming girls and tolerant, yet horrified parents.

Do I have ANY indie cred left after that? I'll try and get some back in 16 days at SXSW while listening to Lou Reed's keynote talk. (heavy sigh)

i was going to tease you without mercy until i remembered i loved, loved LOVED the monkees when i was a kid... and i can still sing along to some of their songs. truce?

ginger had a special place in my heart back in the day.

dan thanh, i accept your truce.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...what's wrong with the Monkees?!?

' Take that laaaast train to clarksville....'

jtk, absolutely nothing. i still love the monkees... so... cheer up, sleepy jean. oh, what can it mean. to a daydream believer...and a homecoming queen.... (p.s. mickey was always my favorite, tho.)
