Hey do you guys remember this song? I’m going to date myself by saying this was a big song when I was in college. I lived with my friend Pjetur (pronounced Peter) who was obsessed with *NYSNC so he waited until this video came on TRL (Total Request Live with host Carson Daly on MTV), popped a VHS tape into the VCR, and recorded it so we could watch it whenever we wanted. That was what passed for “on demand.” My god, I feel so old at this moment, like I’m telling my grandkids a story about rationing pantyhose during the war.
Anyhow, Pjetur and I watched this video over and over and memorized the dance moves to the part after JT says “man, I’m tired of singing.” And today I have this song playing on repeat in my head because… I’m going to EW PopFest on Saturday!
There are some very exciting panels, but the biggest one is a Happy Endings reunion and table read of a brand new episode. There’s also a panel with “first footage” of the Gilmore Girls. Since I’m going not just as a fan who’s watched Happy Endings all the way through five to eight times this year but as an intrepid reporter, please let me know what on the Saturday schedule looks interesting to you and I’ll try to report back with inside details.
Any LA folks can find ticket info here: http://ewpopfest.com/#tickets2
Please let me know if you plan to attend and we can make plans to meet up for drinks!
