Looking good out there!

So…still no definitive word on when we will next get to bask in the musical vibery of the Jonas boys et al, collectively or separately (can you believe “Who I Am” has been out for almost 2 months?  Where did the time go?) And the same goes for Bulldozer (we’re waiting! so patiently!) but this past week was a fairly busy one on an official level, anyway…

Joe & Demi surprised us (or at least me?) with an unexpected turn on the high profile (if not always hospitable) American Idol soundstage to perform their Friends for Change duet single “Make a Wave”. It was a polarizing choice for many fans, but they did an admirable job which received the usual fair balance of adoration & praise to criticism & disdain, from all the usual camps.  Joe redeemed himself at least a bit, in some eyes, for his less than stellar Idol judging stint, especially with the post-performance stage banter, and Joe & Demi continue to blur the lines & fuel plenty of chatter over their public/private pairing with a post-show visit to Ryan Seacrest (see below the chop).

The KCAs followed the typical awards show arc of a slow build to an ultimately anticlimactic result. The main benefit for Jonas fans was a new set of red orange carpet shots since – in contrast to their last visit to the KCA stage and their pretty adorable hosting duties at the Teen Choice Awards, what a difference a year makes! – they never touched the stage, neither to perform nor to collect a blimp in either of their nominated categories. (They were passed over as Favorite Musical Group in favor of the Black Eyes Peas, and Nick & Joe losing Favorite TV Actor to Dylan Sprouse.)  This all had a bit of a bizarro world tone to it, for anysuperfan who watched, but such is Nickelodeon, & kids, circa 2010. But I think Jonas fans and Jonases alike can easily take this “crushing defeat” with grace…right? 😉

Off the tube, we continue to be treated to pretty steady Twitter updates from Nick, Joe & Bulldozer. John Taylor celebrated his 28th birthday (Happy Happy, JT!).  John also gave confirmation that the suspected Papa Jonas Twitter is the real deal (and there’s some pretty sweet stuff in there). While Kevin remains….mysterious in that venue (love you anyway, Kevin!), is it just me or have Nick’s tweets been a little warmer, sweeter and less vague in the past few days?  I know I’ve enjoyed them.

All of this said, the biggest news of the week has to be saved for last.

You already know about it, I am sure. Like all good champions of their field, The Grog Blog has re-emerged from premature retirement. We have all experienced or heard of the power of JB bassist Greg Garbowsky’s blog in the past, and now the real deal is at hand again!!  If you haven’t yet, make sure to go back and read all of the old, now-revived posts (and videos!) before settling in for the future of Grog. And this is for you, Garbo:

After the jump, you’ll find a few videos from the weeks’ activities (Idol & KCA related).  What do you think of all these new developments?!

We send our heartfelt Congratulations and Best Wishes for a life full of love and happiness to the newly minted


We are glad the record setting blizzard did not put a damper on the day…I guess it was a white wedding for real! (I am so so sorry, I have been trapped in the house all day with this storm – I’m a little punchy).

People Magazine reports the wedding was like a fairytale, and we will see their “wedding album” in the December 30th issue of People. I can’t wait!

But now- from our bloggerly standpoint, anyway – it is time to let them enjoy this happy time, and for us to take a holiday blog break of our own.

Feel free to use this post to send good wishes, share the latest news updates, or whatever you like (it is an open thread), and we will see you after Christmas!*


*that is not to say you might not see us in the comments or on Twitter!

This week is all about Canada! Well… Canada and the good ol’ U. S. of A.!

(OK, so I know I was not so great with updates last week – and the post was kinda trumped by Rolling Stone, and Nick J. I promise to be better, but if the tweets get too overwhelming I will just do highlights.)

Follow along as they continue to tour…


…after the jump!
