Joey's latest blog

11/23/2010 - thankful for you
Here come the holidays...wow. I guess I can't say "where has the time gone?", because it has been a full year. Many many things have happened along the way. I feel though that I have grown a lot since the beginning of the year. Take for instance the 6 dates I did in January. I look back and it that feels like '99, which is nice in a way because that means I must have felt young, with something to prove. That little mini tour was alot- a lot of of fun, but a lot. I was fueled by my drive for independence after being with the "Kids" for the previous 2 years. I had something to say apart from what we were doing. I am thoroughly happy with what came out of that "drive". My CD Here We Go Again is something I love and love to catch up on from time to time. I hope you guys are still enjoying it. But after that independent streak ran its course, I was reinvigorated to get back with the guys and create another "moment". The cruise '10 and the CasiNO Tour are now part of New Kids lore. Another amazing chapter. Since then I have been working on a few things that I hope will see the light of day soon. I don't want to rush it though. Something I am working on- hurry and indecision. Staying centered and really listening to what works for me and what will bring me the most peace. Easier said than done, but "putting it out there."

Mixed in there is the pleasant surprise of me and Eman performing together again, which is a wild ride, but something we both take very seriously and of which we get so much. There is more to come from One Too Many for sure. Maybe sooner than we think.

And then we have the juggernaut that is NKOTBSB. Above all it is fun. I don't think any of us thought we, all 9 of us, would be enjoying it this much. But why shouldn't we. We are blessed. The AMA's were special. I felt very connected to you, our fans, in a way that felt different. As I mentioned in a tweet, its gotta feel good to see your boys and "Boys" up there after all these years of supporting us and have us received the way we were. The performance was fun. And objectively speaking, kind of spectacular- a sneak peak for sure. But now we have to top it. Now we have to back it up. I believe we will. We are just a bunch of guys singing songs and dancing, so I don't mean to sound more important than it is, but music, and art and dance and laughter are so very important in life and we are so very honored to play a role in that essential part of your life. This Thanksgiving I am once again thankful for you -jm
