Hello again! I finally feel like I have something to write about!!

[DISCLAIMER – this is going to be an old school Sibling Revelry post. That means if you are a starry eyed superfan who thinks the Guys can do no wrong – this is not the blog for you. I reserve the right to be critical, sarcastic, and snarky. I also reserve the right, in my rightful role as a mom, to point out the perils of wearing tight clothing and tripping hazards. If you are with me, follow me over the jump. If you’re not, and you follow me anyway, don’t bother leaving a nasty comment. I’ll delete it. This is a personal blog, not a democracy.]

Ready? Here we go!

This new video from the Guys has it all. On its surface it is a promo to get you to watch Camp Rock 2 (which premiered tonight, by the way), but is oh so much more. First we have all of Bulldozer there. Second they are being funny because they are being guys and they are not afraid of little girls thinking they are gross (FYI they are ALL gross). And third, well… you will just have to watch it…. after the jump…

Off we go!

After months (and months and months) of dormancy on our part, we are off to see the Jonai today! WOOOT!  It has been too long (last October! I saw Nick in January).

I can’t wait!

We’ve got a full day planned with the Road Dogs game followed by the show tonight in Camden (and maybe some shopping in Philly in between). We will be hanging out with Merry and E (who we’ve not seen for too long). It’s going to be perfect day for it! It is going to be AWESOME.

I will be making updates to the post throughout the e day – I am sure MM will keep the tweets flying as well.

Updates after the jump!

Not a good day for the JB superfandom, as the (erstwhile “Camp Rock”) Jonas Brothers World Tour 2010 appears to have undergone some hasty restructuring, even as tourmates rehearsed away and Kevin & Danielle were prepping their packing plans.

The Sibling Revelry community appears to be particularly impacted by the reshuffling.  We may not be the ones panting that a tweet from one of the Bros will make our lives, or sneaking into meet & greets, or other demanding, frenzied activities of the fickle tween demo that is the commonly imagined JB fan –  but we ARE the superfans with itchy trigger fingers at the first second of the earliest presales – we travel, buy tickets for multiple shows – and a number of us live outside of the favored Northeastern and West Coast markets.

Clearly a day of huge disappointment for many, and I know our hearts go out to each other.  There’s always been much talk of the powers-that-be of JB management (“the PTB”, thanks for that one, Shelley!) and we can add this to the list of days when we wonder if the PTB have a clue (or care) about WDT (“we discerning types”, thanks for that one, SR charter readership! ;)).

To be fair…I’ve been reading a lot of Bob Lefsetz since Garbo & Papa J let that cat out of the bag and if I’ve learned anything from it – if the reason behind all this is indeed weak sales – the JBs are in no way alone in the struggle to repeat their previous bang-up summer sales (though the Camp Rock angle surely did NOT help).  They have some pretty healthy company in price drops and show cancellations.  We understand their struggle to run a viable tour and business, but it seems like there has to be a better way to deal with whatever is going on than cutting off your very biggest, heartland fans at the knees. So as some of us suspect, is there more at play than the bottom line?  Is there really a good reason for a revised schedule that leaves so many fans in the lurch?

Please feel free to continue to voice your most honest concerns and frustrations and thoughts here, over the jump, where – if this is all news to you – I’ve posted the text of the Brothers’ (via Team Jonas) letter of announcement/apology and the (irksome to some of us) PRNewswire release that went out in support of the tour revamp/cancellation/expansion.

I am so so sorry, Guys. I was totally prepared to be underwhelmed by Jonas LA tonight. I had my snarky post intro all written up. I was even planning on making a reference to the show Fifteen (and that may become relevant later on), but I was left – happy!

On small step for the internets. One giant leap for the Jonas Group.

Cambio has landed!

I wouldn’t exactly call it a soft launch, but Cambio.com is here with a smattering of content to whet our appetites. Live now we get a piece on Demi’s trip to Chile doing a Red Cross goodwill project (while on tour) on the Cambio Cares channel, an intro to Cambio’s daily show Cambio Connect, a video of the Guys stuck in that elevator, a very tantalizing Road Dogs video and page, and a News page featuring exclusive coverage of Joe in Africa, along with other celebrity news.

So far, so good, Cambio!

The site also gives us a glimpse of upcoming content such as a “Nick In London” mini series, “Stars Go Home” with Joe (and others), Chats with Nick, the cast of Camp Rock 2, and “Mystery Artists,” tour coverage, and a style show.

What an AMAZINGLY fun chat! Thanks a ton, Guys!

Despite the fact that Nick was suffering from some major allergy issues (thanks a lot, PJ’s cat), tonight’s live chat was full of win. There was some singing, a little fighting over the iPad (until Kevin just got his out), random stories, crank calls, whistling for Starbucks, a Borat impression, reminiscing about the LMITE tour and recording Jonas Brothers, an awkward turtle, and talking about balls *ahem*. They also talked about the new tour, their upcoming appearances (Jay Leno tomorrow night, GMA next Friday, Nick on I Get That A Lot later next week – I think). Mostly they just hung out, answered questions, and enjoyed showing each other items in the chat that were NSFB (Joe even said “You guys need to get a little more “G” rated..” at one point).

New things we learned from this chat (or I learned, at least):

  • They are planning to use lots of video in the staging of the upcoming tour.
  • They are planning on doing some live streaming of Road Dogs’ games! (very excited about this!)
  • The Guys get a synopsis email detailing the scuttlebutt on the forums (and beyond).
  • Joe wants to take DJ Lessons.

Favorite moments include:

  • “The other day in gym….”
  • “Can you whistle? Then you can’t get Starbucks.”
  • “Skittles or Skills?”
  • “Dude, don’t touch my iPad right now.”
  • “We like you guys a lot.”
  • “Hmmm…. be careful…”
  • “Do you want us to change anything? ‘Cause we can.”
  • Joe doing his impression of Nick J.
  • The irrelevant chuck.

Check out the chat after the jump!
