What started like a simple post, ended up taking a lot of hours of research and boy band video-watching. I may or not regret it.

Voila! The Ultimate Guide to Boy Bands of the 90s ~

There were boy bands I hadn’t even heard of… and some that I had to dust off my VHS tapes to get their names. Ha!

Congrats, Amy! You’ve made it a year!
Now please, get to work on that website you’ve been talking about all this time.

Yeah, where is Nate? Yeah, that. Nate and I are working on something else, which is nothing at the moment… just a random gig, which will hopefully fuel our bank accounts a bit and let us work on YAM fully for a month or two…
