Very intersting paper here. Someone I know wrote their BA thesis about older NSYNC fans and why they choose to be fans. Or, since I'm not doing too well at explaing it, a quote from the paper, "Thus, the question is not just how and why individuals identify as Nsync fans, but of these older individuals who risk mockery yet still identify as Nsync fans, why do they choose to accept this negative social identity?"

Very insightful paper. Whoever wrote that must be really smart. REALLY smart. Hee.

And I love how your icon looks like JC tried to read the paper, but all the thinking hurt his pretty head.

Re:
Yes. very smart. :) But poor JC. He's not used to academia. He's an artiste. Now, Lance on the other hand, he'd understand it. (or, you know, Chris would. because he studied psychology. didn't he?)

Re:
"Studied" psychology. For two years. This is sociology, anyway. Not that it's particularly difficult to understand. Chris would probably get it anyway. Now Lance...I'm not so sure about that. I'm not entirely convinced of his intellectual prowress.

Re:
well, psychology and sociology tend to go hand in hand. Are you questioning Chris' higher education? :) And are you trying to pick a fight? You know I'm gonna defend Lance. :) hehe Hey, he'd understand it better than Joey would. :)

Re:
Yes. I question Chris's higher education mainly because most people act like he has a psych ph.d. when he really just has an associate's degree. Nothing wrong with an associate's degree, it just doesn't automatically make him brilliant.

I don't think Lance understands much of anything other than he can buy his dreams as opposed to having talent and working for them like other people do. This in reference to the movie and the space thing, not his general singing career. I used to respect the guy.

And Joey would just ask if you all had big boobs. :)

Re:
Hey, just because she's cooler than Carrie doesn't mean you have to be rude. :)

Re:
Okay okay...truce. Let's just agree to agree that Carrie is cooler than that other chick. Okay? Or is it agree to disagree? I can't remember. Whatever.

Oh! I know. Let's agree that they are BOTH cooler than that chick that wrote the paper! Okay....okay...sorry. TRUCE. I just got back from Vegas and I'm still coming down from my Vegas high....forgive me.
