I seriously contemplated whether a blog post about this was necessary. I mean, we’ve known it was coming for weeks now. And yes I was upset. It’s losing Nsync all over again! The fact that I still have Backstreet is what’s numbing the pain.
But then I started looking through old photo libraries on my laptop, and I’ve realized the Jonas Brothers have been by far the best part of the past decade of my life. It started at Libby, and perhaps that’s why I hold them so close to my heart. While they proved to be great conversation starters with my littlest BFF’S they were actually incredible adventures for me and my BFF’S OF THE CLL OF THE DTD. From rocking out to songs in the middle of the store, to bringing a cake in to celebrate Joe’s birthday, or rather being in Vegas and telling fellow patrons you have to take a shot at midnight because Nick Jonas is finally turning 18…all these memories do nothing but bring a smile to my face. There were songs that brought a smile to my face when everything felt like it was falling apart (Hold On. I still want those lyrics tattood.) Songs that I swore were written about the never ending does he like me does he not like me saga, (Make It Right.) And then of course there were songs that were just perfect for a good ol’ G.N.O. (Fly With Me, Paranoid, Love Bug, Burning Up, Year 3000.) Classics.
While I’m happy for the boys they’re doing what they feel is right in their heart, and of course looking forward to what’s next, with the exception of another solo album from Joe (that last one was just…no. Although I guess it means the next one can only be better) I’m sad I don’t get to rock out to lyrics involving our great great grand daughter and a guy named Peter, or singing out loud about Peter Pan and Wendy, I’ll forever be grateful for this crazy adventure known as being a Jonas fan (or a Joe Bro hoe, as me and my friends lovingly referred to ourselves.) And the memories? We’ll just have to hold on. In the mean time we’ll always be wild and free so call us freaks but that’s the way we’ll always roll.
