The other thing is this industry has decided it only has one market. Unlike any other industry in the world, unlike film or books or sports even, this industry has decided it has only one market and that’s 14 year old boys.
Tim on the show does a lot of that posturing, of course, and feels sort of threatened by women. But even at that, you do see him cooking, and ultimately he’s a good father because he spends a lot of time with the boys.
We must declare ourselves, become known; allow the world to discover this subterranean life of ours which connects kings and farm boys, artists and clerks. Let them see that the important thing is not the object of love, but the emotion itself.
Well, I went to school with Jan and Dean, Ryan O’Neal, some of the Beach Boys we all use to party together.
Boys are beyond the range of anybody’s sure understanding, at least when they are between the ages of 18 months and 90 years.
The heroes of our youth grow old – ‘the boys of summer in their ruin,’ in Dylan Thomas’s verse – yet we seem the same.
I really believe that’s one of the many reasons that God had put me right in the middle of the Backstreet Boys. There are so many stars today that don’t realize the impact they have on young people. Being a superstar is great, as long as you can be a positive role model.
All through my school life I was appalled by the fact that masters and senior boys were allowed quite literally to wound other boys, and sometimes very severely.
In all our quest of greatness, like wanton boys, whose pastime is their care, we follow after bubbles, blown in the air.
I love physical kinds of comedy and getting down and dirty and doing stunts. When I was growing up, I was always getting into fights with guys and usually punching out boys my age because I was a lot bigger and tougher. So I’m naturally accustomed to putting myself into the headspace of a girl who can take care of herself.
My brother Leon started it all. He played the piano. In school they made me leader of the orchestra because I played the violin, but I followed Leon and the boys in his jazz band around.
The games industry is already bigger than the music industry, and it’s mainly directed at teenage boys.
The fact of the matter is that everybody treats me pretty much as one of the boys, which I take as a great compliment.
Mutual funds give people the sense that they’re investing with the big boys and that they’re really not at a disadvantage entering the stock market.
I was the last one to screen test for The Hardy Boys. I’d like to play that’s not as clean-cut as Frank Hardy. I play him as straight as possible.
It’s true, I had an extremely delicious life, but that was my life at home, and perhaps because I was only a child, or for whatever reasons, I found the company of others, especially other boys, quite terrifying and upsetting.
At the time I came along, Hollywood’s idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. And the last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!
The invention of basketball was not an accident. It was developed to meet a need. Those boys simply would not play ‘Drop the Handkerchief.’
Little girls and boys, barefooted, walked up and down between the endless rows of spindles, reaching thin little hands into the machinery to repair snapped threads.
Black boys became criminalized. I was in constant dread for their lives, because they were targets everywhere. They still are.
The awesomeness of God is that even in the works of the Beach Boys, Beatles, etc., the beauty of the music is a mere reflection of what God does everyday. He creates music of all kinds and moods.
Nature makes boys and girls lovely to look upon so they can be tolerated until they acquire some sense.
I can tell you the day The Beach Boys will no longer exist – never. We’ll be on stage in wheelchairs.
The moral turpitude of the boys of today appears to center in their failure to concentrate on any particular objective long enough to obtain their maximum results.
Expecting to be able to get rid of the competitive drive, first of all, flies in the face of human nature – and little girls certainly have this drive, as much as little boys do, or at least the little girls I have observed in my immediate family have it.
We are not about to send American boys 9 or 10 thousand miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves.
When I worked on Altar Boys, they wanted to see us having fun. The four of us would have fun on set and steal each other’s lines, and mess with the director.
I was never very interested in boys – and there were plenty of them – vying with one another to see how many famous women they would get into the hay.
Talking with other parents really gave me some lessons that I try to hold on to now, as a parent of two boys.
Alexander at the head of the world never tasted the true pleasure that boys of his own age have enjoyed at the head of a school.
Some of the wise boys who say my music is loud, blatant and that’s all should see the faces of the kids who have driven a hundred miles through the snow to see the band… to stand in front of the bandstand in an ecstasy all their own.
I’m the biggest nerd – I love comic books and stuff like that! I don’t have any friends who are actresses. I only had one girlfriend when I was growing up. Most of my friends were boys. I was such a tomboy. I enjoyed doing guy things.
We don’t do drugs, drink or use profanity. Instead we instill morals and values in my boys by raising them with a love of God and a love and respect for themselves and all people. I believe they will have a chance.
I’ve also been working with the Challengers Club in the inner city of Los Angeles for 15 years now, I guess, and it’s essentially an inner-city recreation club for boys and girls.
Boys frustrate me. I hate all their indirect messages, I hate game playing. Do you like me or don’t you? Just tell me so I can get over you.
The philosophy of the school was quite simple – the bright boys specialised in Latin, the not so bright in science and the rest managed with geography or the like.
For the longest time, I thought I was a boy. I really did. I wore boys’ clothes, played tag football.
For my confirmation, I didn’t get a watch and my first pair of long pants, like most Lutheran boys. I got a telescope. My mother thought it would make the best gift.
The one we keep pitching and there are no takers is The Fabulous Baker Boys Go To Hawaii. There don’t seem to be any takers on that one!
