Project: The Inside Thoughts of Now
In 2001, when I was 13 I used to watch the original series of ‘Making the Band’ on video tape over and over and over. I followed the lives of O-Town’s members as close as I did my own. I sat on the edge of my seat as Ikaika quit the band and was replaced by Dan and I was happy that Jacob fulfilled his dream of signing a record contract before he turned 21. I was frustrated for Trevor when his girlfriend said she only wanted to be friends and sad for Eric who was trying to reconnect with his absent father. When Ashley realised that he and his High school girlfriend, Shelley could not be together (he was growing too fast, she felt left behind, standing in the crater of his old life, her hands stretched out for his) my heart felt so heavy I could barely keep it inside my chest, the memory of it all like an old sticker, a memento of days past.
