When I was a silly teenager I loathed and HATED Take That with all my might. When Robbie Williams split, I was very gleeful and when then Take That split I jumped for joy.

... Don't ask me why this mattered to me so much. I did know all their names and I found them all EXTREMELY cute, but I HATE AND LOATHED their music (and I would never admit I found them cute).

When "Back For Good" came out, I was so incredibly embarrassed that I actually found the song ok... so I did the mature thing and loathed it publicly. But I did admit to like their version of "How Deep is Your Love".

When they began again a few years back I did laugh at the irony that a few girls actually committed suicide when they split back in the day. But I genuinely like their new albums. And I find them 10 times more handsome now than I did back in the day.

Why am I writing about this now?

Well, I've got Magic on and they have some program going on "Robbie & Take That - Their story so far". Probably to celebrate the fact that Robbie has joined Take That again (I remember loving him from the get go when he quit... just because he quit, I think.. also he was a friend of Liam and Noel Gallager (I still do find Robbie quite awesome)).

Anyways, "How Deep is Your Love" was just on and day-um. They looked VERY VERY fine.

And to celebrate their beautiful-ness here are pictures (even though Mark's hair is quite ridiculous in some of them teehee):
























Youtube is being weird about How Deep is Your Love video, so here is link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvBzSSNUMik&feature=PlayList&p=48639BFD551F51DD&playnext_from=PL&playnext=1&index=25

Yeah, I know. It's pretty ridiculous! I don't remember if ppl killed themselves when Michael Jackson died, but I know people killed themselves 'cause of Avatar - they were so bummed over not to be able to live on Pandora that they just... killed themselves... and this was maybe a month after it was released *shakes head*

:P The icon is pretty awesome :P

Whaaaat? That's insanity! I can understand killing yourself over Michael Jackson, a celebrity death is a bit different to a band splitting up, but AVATAR?! Jesus. These people need to learn to write, or go to Second Life or cosplay or SOMETHING. I really must see this movie. I don't understand the fuss about it.

Guh. GUH.

I started reading British magazines around the time Take That made it big for the first time and soon I knew way too much about the band. At the time I was pretty ambivalent about their music. When it came to British boybands of that time, I prefered East 17 (LOL). But somehow I ended up with a great appreciation for Take That and am actually a huge fan now as I own both the albums they have done after their reunion, Gary Barlow's autobiography, a documentary about them, Take That SingStar game and so on. And I couldn't be happier about Robbie reuniting with them.

/cool story, bro.

Mega Cool Story :P - With capital letters even!

I haven't gone quite as far as you have :P I've only stolen their albums of the internet and listen to them a lot :P

But I have read all their wikipedia pages :P

Anything interesting in Gary's autobiography?

Well, back in '93 -'94, Take That always made it appear like they had no time for girls at all (probably wise since their fans were very cray cray) but Gary says in his autobiography that they were total sluts. I also found the chapters about Gary's life after the band broke up, interesting.

I always forget how people in the U.S don't generally know Take That :P

It's not weird you should know the last song since that was in Stardust (if you've seen that one)... but I don't think Take That have ever released a song in the U.S so I don't know why you know these songs hhahaha :D

But it's still cool!

Haha, yeah. No one could make me believe that 5 guys in their early 20's weren't into girls hahahaha :D

Maybe I'll borrow it from you... soon and read it quickly haha :D Or I'll just... buy it :P

Lol I love the old schoolpix. I had most of them on my walls lol. I thought they were cute back then, but man, they got so gorgeous the older they got and I fear a younger me wouldn't have appreciated them now, as much as I do.

As you know, this reunion means the world to me and if I don't get tickets to the tour I will ... well, I won't be commiting suicide put it that way hahaha
