Welcome to the Octet Fan Blog! Unfortunately I suck at blogging...heh. Anyway, I've got a lot of work to do on this page. I'm a procrastinator, so we'll see how much I do on it. Maybe I can use this page to procrastinate on my real job. Hey! Good thinking, me! Anyway, if you have any Octet Love or shout outs, you can do that here.
I suppose the first thing I should let you know is how I got so obsessed with the Octet (My friend E-Spot calls them my "little sickness", but that should be taken as a diagnosis of a perfectly sane person.).
It started in about November of 2008, and I was looking for some Christmas songs to jolly my scrooge-y friends into the holiday spirit when I found a video by Straight No Chaser, which are an a cappella group from Indiana U...they had a song called 12 Days which I ended up posting on a message board. I was amazed at 12 Days and watched it alot!
So, as I watched 12 Days, I saw, under 'related videos', "Not Pretty Enough" and the unforgettably adorkable face of Rick Wood! I got curious and clicked on the video. I thought Not Pretty Enough was the Best video Ever. Rick Wood was a fantastic singer, and so funny + all the great stuff the guys were doing in the background made me smile. :) Though my first thougts of the other guys was that they were mean. Sorry other Octo-dudes. I didn't know.
And, to be honest, I didn't even realize that the Octet only had seven members until some other YouTube poster pointed it out.
So, Not Pretty Enough was the video that made me an Octet fan & Rick Wood, he's gorgeous!
