musical memories

In a refreshing twist, this post has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss. I’m doing well and an update is coming, just not now. I’ve mentioned here before that we’re not allowed to play music at work. It sucks but I was dealing with it. And by dealing with it, I mean it was driving me up a wall.…

omg [i’m] back again

If you were here before this turned into a weight loss/accountability blog, you’d know that I used to talk about things that I was passionate about, like Harry Styles and The Mindy Project. I also used to talk about things I did or events I attended. And when those things combined, you know I was on here for sure letting…

martina is losing it # 26

How is it that it’s been over a month since my last general post and even longer since my last weight loss post? I could say I’ve been busy, which, if you don’t look at what I’m doing Monday- Friday from 9a-5p () and only at the weekends, it’s an accurate statement. But it’s not an excuse. I didn’t have…

TV Tuesday – DWTS

Did everyone watch Dancing with the Stars last night? You should have. Especially for the glorious spectacle that was Nick and Sharna’s dance. (Nick being Nick Carter of BSB, if you didn’t know.) I felt like I was back at one of their concerts. i’m already making plans to get tickets for whenever they’re in my area. It was amazing!…

the art of the music video

Being a child of the 90’s, I have a special place in my heart for music videos. They were a big deal back in the day, just ask Carson Daly. Remember Pop Up Video on VH1 and Making the Video on MTV? Those were my jams. Nothing better on a Saturday than reading all about who was coming to Melissa…

Backstreet Boys (to men!)

This past weekend I finally got to watch the Backstreet Boys movie. FINALLY. I really had every intention to get to a movie theater with my Backstreet lovin’ cousin, Jill and sit back with our barrel full of popcorn and trough of Diet Coke. However, life got in the way and we never made it to a theater playing it.…

facebook made me do it

Facebook made me write this post. I didn’t have anything in mind to talk about but then I signed on to that shit-stirring website and saw this: Seriously? Way to make me feel guilty, Facebook. Anyway, I decided to give in and post something for my fans. Except I still didn’t know what to say. I started to feel really…

bsb countdown

The trailer for the new Backstreet Boys documentary came out yesterday. All I could say is HURRY UP JANUARY 30th. I’m already feeling all the feels. ALL.OF.THEM.

everybodayy… backstreet’s back! alright!

GUYS! The long awaited (for me, anyway) Backstreet Boys documentary is finally being released! January 30, 2015 – MARK IT DOWN, AMERICA. February 26, 2016 – MARK IT DOWN, WORLD. I love me some One Direction but the Backstreet Boys will hold my heart forever. They showed me the shape of their hearts and promised they would never break mine.…

One Direction, a little BSB, and Band Aid

So, One Direction’s new album, Four, was released on Monday and it is AWESOME! It isn’t like anything they’ve released before. All of the boys have had a hand in writing the songs on this one. Most of all, Louis and Liam. I don’t know how to even begin to review the album, as this is not Rolling Stone. Luckily,…
