We caught up with Ricky, Emery & Liam of Forever In Your Mind before their performance at Arthur Ashe Kids Day in NYC. 2016 has been quite a year for the band, who released their debut EP earlier this Summer. Just last year, the band played on the smaller Hess Festival Stage on the grounds of AAKD. This year, they had the huge Arthur Ashe Stadium rocking along to their single “Hurricane!”
Watch our interview below and learn more about FIYM’s upcoming Disney Channel series, what they would pick as their walk on song, and more!

We’ve been majorly fangirling since we first heard the announcement that one of our favorite shows of all time, “Boy Meets World,” was getting a sequel!
We finally have the first look at the new series, “Girl Meets World,” which follows Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley.
The series is sure to be a hit with everyone who remembers watching the show growing up, and if it’s anything like the original, we’re sure a new generation of fans will follow.
It seems 90s nostalgia is at an all time high this year, but hey we’re not complaining! (Perfect conditions for an *NSYNC reunion, right?)
Still no word on the premiere date, but the show has already been ordered for a full season! We’ll definitely be tuning in to see Cory and Topanga. And fingers crossed Shawn & Eric will be making an appearance or two!
It’s been an amazing couple of years for boyband aficionados such as ourselves. It all started when NKOTBSB (that’s New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys, duh) announced they would be joining forces for a tour in 2011 (arguably the best tour of our entire lives). The next year, 98 Degrees reunited! We still aren’t sure if the t-shirt we got at their Mixtape Festival show has a picture taken in 2002 or 2012. They’ve aged EXTREMELY well. And of course 2013 brought us the Package Tour: NKOTB, 98 Degrees, AND Boyz II Men. What more could a boyband fangirl ask for? Well then we got the greatest gift of all: NSYNC REUNITING AT THE VMAs (yes, we have to write this in all caps every time we mention it, because OMG!) We should actually thank Big Time Rush for all of these boyband reunions, because they brought boybands back. Alright?
While we impatiently wait for that NSYNC reunion tour, which unfortunately doesn’t look possible for this summer as Justin Timberlake will still be out on his 20/20 Experience World Tour, we thought about which OTHER boybands could reunite in 2014 to fill the void…
1. 5ive – They were the original Simon Cowell boyband. Their first single, “Slam Dunk (Da Funk)” debuted at number 10 in the UK, but had little success in the United States. Their second single, “When The Lights Go Out” was certified Gold in 1998. They made a few bad decisions along the way, like turning down a song called “Bye Bye Bye…”
Who can forget their iconic choreographed dance scene cameo in Disney’s “Smart House”
2. 2ge+her – Okay, so they were created as a joke but they’re still iconic in boyband history. We still find ourselves breaking out into their hit song “U + Me = Us (Calculus)”
Remember when they were on Even Stevens? Pretty sure “Back Here” was also played on every single WB show.
Apparently, this is already actually happening. They recently launched a Twitter page and keep hinting at future music.
We wanted to share the official music video here, because it’s amazing, but someone has managed to faceblock it from the internet. In summary: the boys bring a boom box to the laundromat and dance around in their muscle tanks.
6. Dream Street
Otherwise known as the Lyte Funky Ones, they made it impossible for a generation to say “Abercrombie & Fitch” without thinking of this song. (or is that just us?)
8. The Original Menudo
with Ricky Martin. If you’re into these pants, you can buy them now at American Apparel! In the women’s department.
We’ve actually never heard of them before, but this is an amazing name, so yes.
10. The Moffatts
This band has FOUR brothers!
11. S Club 7
This isn’t strictly a boyband, but they are still awesome. Remember their show on ABC Family?
But really, WE JUST WANT AN *NSYNC REUNION!! Please?
We’ve basically been hibernating lately since we want to avoid this awful winter as much as possible. That means cranking up the heat, baking cookies, and marathoning 90s TV shows. Netflix and Hulu have a pretty good selection but there are some major omissions. Here’s what we’d like to see added, preferably before spring hits and we start spending our time outside again.
1. Boy Meets World – With the “Girl Meets World” premiere happening sometime this year (really Disney? You still can’t give us a date?) it’s only fitting that we get a chance to catch up on the classic series first. We’ve been missing this show ever since ABC Family stopped airing it weekday mornings (it was the perfect get-ready for work show).
2. Gilmore Girls – Every other long running WB series is on Netflix (“Dawson’s Creek,” “Roswell,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “One Tree Hill..”). Except for “Gilmore Girls.” And “Felicity.” We love this show for it’s smart, fast dialogue and wit, and for bringing Adam Brody into our lives for the first time.
3. Summerland – A show that stars a pre-High School Musical Zac Efron (he still had a gap!), Jesse McCartney, Becky from Full House, and Kay Panabaker? And takes place in a California beach town, where it’s permanently summer? Sign us up. The show sadly lasted for only 2 seasons but managed to pack a lot of drama in.
4. Young Americans – This show was billed as a “Dawson’s Creek” spinoff, somehow, as it follows a guest-star with a 2-episode arc (Will Krudski, Pacey’s childhood friend) to a prestigious boarding school in New England. It also stars a young Kate Bosworth and pre-Vampire Diaires Ian Somerholder. The show, which takes place during the summer and aired as a summer replacement for “Dawson’s Creek” in 2000, only lasted for 8 episodes but brings us warm memories all the same. I mean just look at the show’s opening credits – it’s basically an Abercrombie & Fitch ad.
5. Bunheads – Another show by “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, which features the same snappy dialogue, pop-culture references, and many of the actors. This show was brilliant, funny, and heartwarming all at once, so obviously it was canceled way before it should have been. Maybe the network execs just couldn’t keep up with the dialogue?
Honorable mention: The OC – It never occurred to us that “The OC” should be on Netflix because OBVIOUSLY we own all 4 seasons of the greatest show of all time on DVD. (And season 1 is practically falling apart due to overuse) But we just realized that it’s not on Netflix and/or Hulu, and it’s a shame for anyone who doesn’t own it.
The 2014 Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia are just around the corner (seriously, they start tomorrow!) and with the sudden influx of snow in the city, if we aren’t in the park sledding and having snowball fights…we’re parked on the couch with hot chocolate (and tea) watching our favorite winter sports themed movies!
1. The Mighty Ducks Trilogy
This film franchise was the reason we dusted off our in-line skates in the summer, and made us want to join the hockey team in the winter. Starring Joshua Jackson as Charlie Conway and Emilio Estevez as Coach Gordon Bombay, and Kenan Thompson as Russ Tyler, The Mighty Ducks movies follow a rag-tag team of misfits navigating their way through peewee hockey, the Junior Goodwill Games, and eventually high school. And let’s not forget the original Banksy aka Adam Banks, who reluctantly joined the team mid-season but eventually became a full-fledged Duck. Quack Quack Quack!
Charlie Boyle is Chaz Anthony. Chaz Anthony is Charlie Boyle. They’re the same person. Except Charlie wears glasses and a lab coat while Chaz dons a leather jacket and spikey hair. Hannah Montana before there was Hannah Montana! Charlie is a science nerd trying to defy gravity (he’s in college and he isn’t even 14). When he starts to tutor a beautiful girl named Clair (played by Emmy Rossum) Charlie enrolls in the local high school, reinventing himself as a bad boy slacker – Chaz Anthony. The movie follows Charlie’s struggles of living a double life and how you can defy gravity while playing ice hockey!
3. Cool Runnings
“If enough people say they can believe, Jamaica, we got a bobsled team!” Cool Runnings is loosely based off the true story of the first Jamaican bobsled team made up of the fastest sprinters in Jamaica. It’s also one of the most quotable movies of all time. “Hey Sanka, what ya smoking?” “I’m not smoking, I’m breathing!” And it stars 90s icons such as Doug E. Doug and John Candy.
