So here we are at week 5 and we didn’t get any submissions for this week, sooooooooo...I’m gonna submit one of my own tour memories for this week.
Back in August 2010, the Boys did a TIU show in Cleveland, OH. Five of us Noisy Girl planned on meeting up and going to the show together. For some, it was the first time we’d all meet in person. There was myself (from WV), Chels (From OH), Luz (from Texas), Dianne (from Canada) and LadyV (from England). Yeah...we be from ALLL over the globe! We decided to meet up a couple days before the show so that we could all hang out and just have some fun really getting to know each other in person and oohhhhhh what a time we had...like only Noisys know how to do! Full of laughs, fun and making good memories. But one particular instance stands out at MY favorite memory of the trip.
We were on the streets of Cleveland walking somewhere and we kept hearing this beeping sound. We finally realized where the beep was coming from.....the crosswalk signal. We were proud of our discovery until Dianne, or DD as I so affectingly call her, says all of a sudden “Oh!! I get it...the beeping is for the deaf people!” Ok, clearly she MEANT blind people but by the time this registered to me I was almost literally rolling on the ground with laughter, as was the rest of the girls! There were a LOT of hysterical moments on that trip, that lives in infamy in my mind, but THAT is my favorite of them all!
So, that’s one of MY stories, but we want to hear YOURS! We all would love to hear about one of your crazy/funny tour stories! Or if you had a crazy VIP picture, send it our way! Please submit them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Those Backstreet Boys, they just love testing our patience don't they? Teasing away about being in the studio and in meetings. TELL US SOMETHING!!! We need our fix! And hopefully some amazing and hilarious stories from this bound to be epic 20th anniversary year. But until then, we continue on with stories from the past. We didn't get any submissions with week, guess everyone was busy with Valentine's Day ... or should I say gettin' busy! ;) That's ok though, Dianne here and I'll share one of my experiences.
Now, I'll preface this story with a bit of background info. As you may or may not know, I kind of have this thing about asking the boys, especially Nick, if they've ever licked a battery. Don't ask me why, I just think it's funny. So ...
It's August 2011, Nick seems to be here in Toronto every other day (not that I mind) and this website called iVillage Canada is running a contest to go see Nick at an intimate show. All you had to do to enter was send them a question to ask Nick. So of course I'm sending away, trying to win me some tickets, and eventually, I'm running out things to ask. Now, I'm operating under the assumption that, considering a bunch of people are spamming them with tons of questions, they are not actually reading all these questions. What do I have to loose? So I send my question "Have you ever licked a battery?" Well, I didn't win ... :( ... But my friend Sofia did and because she's the best, she took me as her plus one! :)
Fast forward to the day of, we're waiting in line to get inside, along comes this woman who works at the site. We start talking to her and she tells us about how she was the one in charge of the twitter account and how she read all the tweets and they were so funny and ... well ... you can see where this is going. Next thing I know she telling us all about this weird person who wanted them to ask Nick if he's ever licked a battery. I couldn't hold it in. I burst out laughing and said "that was me!!" We all had a good laugh and of course I had to explain why I would ask such an odd question, but to this day, almost every time I tweet that iVillage Canada account, they tweet me back ;)
Now don't leave me hanging here, I know there's a bunch of you out there just as crazy as I am. Send us your stuff!! Not exactly a wizard with words? No worries, we'd be happy to help you put your story into the perfect Noisy blog post. Still not feeling it? Send us your hilarious VIP pic! No writing required! email@example.com
Now let's all cross our fingers and hope by next week we'll have news of NEW BSB events! See you then!
We are back again with the 3rd installment of YOUR past BSB event/encounter stories! This story comes to us from a member of our lovely friends at TDS, Shania. So sit back and enjoy!
So, I've never been to a BSB event but here's my funny encounter involving Twitter, Carly Rae Jepson, food, and Calculus. I was on summer vacation and I was teaching myself how to do Calculus. Suddenly, I got bored, so I decided to have lunch and checked my Twitter timeline. At that time, Brian was tweeting as well. Since I was so bored, I tweeted Brian, thinking that he wasn't going to read it. I Tweeted "Hey this is Shania and I'm not crazy but here's my Twitter, so chirp me maybe". A minute later, he didn't reply once but TWICE! All the while I was doing a calculus problem but eating. The good news is, I didn't choke on my food but I think I messed up that calculus problem as well! lol
That's our Boys...sneak-attacking us on Twitter. Shania definitely got a special and rare shout out from Brian. Way to go Shania! And thank you for sharing your story with us!
Do YOU have a special story or memory of a past BSB event that you'd like to share with our readers? We'd love to hear about your adventures and funny mishaps that happen during tour or a random Boy encounter? Please send them to us and we will post them here on our blog! Look forward to hearing from our readers! You can either send them to us via TDS in our thread or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome back everyone! We've made it to week two here at the new Backstreet Noise Project and we're rolling along slowly but surely!
This week we have a CRUISE story from another friend to the Noisy Girls, Rose. She's a pretty popular gal so you may have heard this one before, but it's so good, it's worth reading again ...
WHY I had the nerve to sign up, I'll never know. I'm not a bold person lol but I've done karaoke before and it seemed simple enough. I mean only Brian was hosting right? I figured it'd be a shot to meet one of my two fave BSBs. Originally I was gonna sing "Nobody But You" but changed my mind last second to "10,000 Promises" since it's my fave song and I figured it'd make me less nervous. I was told they wouldn't pick everyone who signed up so I was like okay and then the poor lady got rushed when a bunch of fans realized what she was doing LOL.
So imagine my shock when they not only are ALL there, but they're singing with the girls who came up first! LOL. I almost had a heartattack. I practically did when AJ's trying to pronounce my last name, I corrected him before I was like "oh shit, that's me!" lmao. When I got up there, hugging the Boys and everything, I was doing my best not to freak out. Next thing I know I've got Brian directing me on moving around the stage lmao. Then I have AJ running into the front row acting like a fan, pretending to cry and reaching for my hand as I sing with Brian having me sing to him. Then, Nick comes up and says "You gotta give them some drama." with me waving my arms about in typical Nick overdramatic fashion. But is that enough? Oh no. "Now we go to the knees" - Then he has me down to the knees like he always does, holding my arms out and mocking his performances lol. Basically I spent the entire song trying not to freak out and laugh till I cried.
This also happened to be the first time I legitimately met the Boys. Apparently it was as memorable to them as it was to me cause in 2011 during a VIP on the NKOTBSB tour, they remembered me LOL. I also got recognized by other fans too. My anonymity in the fandom went poof! Hell, a moment of it's even on the damn cruise dvd. LOL. It was absolutely insane.
Now if that doesn't get you on that boat ... We don't know what will!
Do YOU have an amazing cruise story just like Rose's? Or maybe something from one of the tours or a promo event? SEND IT TO US!! We'd love to post YOUR hilarious experiences right here on our blog. Got friend with a really funny story? Recommend us!! We LOVE newcomers!!
Thanks for reading Noisy fans!! See you next week!
