The Story of TDS

Once upon a time, there was a forum called LiveDaily.

At this forum, there happened to be some moderators that a fairly large group of posters thought were unfair (due to bans over Jello…), so a lovely fan named Emma began a new message board we could go to instead. Given how we were seen as an unruly bunch, we dubbed it The Dark Side. That was back in February 2010. We were told it wouldn’t last, that we’d come back. But we not only outlived that forum, we outlived the After Live Daily forum that followed. We’ve held strong ever since as the largest English-speaking Backstreet Boys forum left on the internet.

We’ve tried to grow since then, forming a twitter over at @TheDarkSideBSB. Then I pitched this idea of a blog to expand…and here we are! My very own website. I hope this will be at least half as successful as our forum! I’ll have discussions, updates, polls, whatever I think the fandom might enjoy. I just want to help a fandom that’s been there for me and for others over the years. Not to mention it’s fun talking about my favorite group!

Behind The Blogger

Fun Facts About Me:
1. My favorite BSB song is 10,000 Promises
2. I collect all sorts of zombie items
3. I’m a Final Fantasy addict
4. Dead 7 combined my two favorite things – cheesy zombie movies & BSB
5. My favorite BSB album is Millennium
6. I love pandas
7. I have a pretty dark sense of humor, fair warning
8. The Vegas Residency was the first time I’ve done more than 3 shows during a “tour” or era.
9. I have a zombie themed bathroom
10. I can honestly say I’ve sung on stage with the Backstreet Boys


My name is Rose. I’m just a simple girl that calls Las Vegas home. Been a fan since around 1997. My favorite Backstreet Boy is Nick though I’m pretty fond of Kevin – actually I’m very fond of all five. I just have a Nick tendency. I’ve written for fun for years so why not about my favorite group? My other main fandom is for the TV show The Walking Dead. If I’m not writing? I’m probably reading. I have a fan page twitter I run by myself outside of the TDS account called @bsbinvegas (created originally for the #BSBVegas residency but is now “BSB On Tour”.)

Everything said here are my thoughts and opinions unless stated otherwise.
I don’t work for the Boys or anything. I’m just a fan.
