Another Freak Show?

Another thing I was wondering about is this whole "Spice Girls" reunion. In my experience, "reunion tours" come about as a result of fan demand. Are they telling me that there is a big enough fan base for this group to warrant a whole tour? Are there any Spice Girls fans left? Or are they counting on the whole "freak show" concept that entertainment in this country seems to be based on these days?

Or maybe...this will be the next "Reality Show." We can watch Posh, who's barely visible anymore she's so skinny. And Scary will probably be just ripe enough to live up to her name now, and she's got drama with the whole "Who My Baby Daddy" thing going on. Umm, is Baby Spice gonna keep that name now? She's 31 years old, if I'm not mistaken, and isn't the concept of women that age being "baby" a little creepy? I'm also not sure if track suits are in vogue anymore...what will Sporty wear? And Ginger...awww Ginger. If I remember correctly, she was capable of generating a little drama of her own.

Of course, it's supposed to be about the music, right?

God help us.


  1. ok, the fact that you know all their 'names'--I think you're a closet fan ;-)

    I have to admit that when I hear a few of their songs on the radio ('so I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want....') I totally turn it up and sing along. However, I don't own any of their CDs and probably never will.

  2. Jimmy- It's nostalgia that they're counting on to sell tickets. And that women who used to be fans will want to feel young again by going to see them.
    And I seriously doubt they're be wearing what they did 10 yrs ago. It's not as if they hung up their costumes and put them aside for the reunion.

  3. Haha Kristen, I'm BUSTED.

    I'm pretty sure that citing sources for my use of their names will do me little good here.

    I will admit that I liked "Two Become One" but that's as far as I'm going.

    Tusk...but what if they DO? :)

  4. Years ago, a young client of mine made me listen to some songs in her "tape player" (yup...that's right) while she sang along.

    I ran out and got a copy. (some catchy stuff!)


  5. I just have to say... I love the spice rack Jimmy... And get your mind out of the gutter! I meant the picture! Geesh... men... :oP



I love comments. I won't lie about that!
