well played!
2007-03-25 03:19:16 AM  
oh, that's wrong.


/said in my best Cartman voice.
2007-03-25 03:21:18 AM  
Very nice.
2007-03-25 03:27:58 AM  
"Great White" sounds like a good nickname for my peener.
2007-03-25 03:28:06 AM  
flame on
2007-03-25 03:35:29 AM  

/window seat, please.
2007-03-25 03:41:17 AM  
I lol'd, but now I'm wondering where I'm going, and how I got in this handbasket?
2007-03-25 04:43:10 AM  
The headline is in very poor taste. Just the way I like it.
2007-03-25 04:49:27 AM  
Can we get Subby a golf clap?
2007-03-25 05:26:42 AM  
DIAF, subby.

That's hot.
2007-03-25 06:30:31 AM  
The link man, she is like, you know, dead? You know?
2007-03-25 07:12:26 AM  
Fire trifecta in play?
2007-03-25 07:15:07 AM  
...I don't get the headline. :(
2007-03-25 07:18:12 AM  
But is it Jack Russell's Great White
2007-03-25 07:30:18 AM  
She comes in colors everywhere

You know, if he's a Great White fan, he just might!
2007-03-25 07:35:15 AM  
*golf clap*
2007-03-25 07:38:53 AM  
"Blah blah blah, something about russia having a long-standing problem with fire-related deaths, blah blah blah"

Well duh. You stuff that much vodka in to someone and then have them all huddle around open flames for warmth. It's a miracle more of them aren't going up like torches from static shocks.
2007-03-25 08:00:03 AM  
Can someone explain this for those of us who don't get it?
2007-03-25 08:02:39 AM  
They're finally going to build on the site of the Station fire by making a restaurant complex there.

Yeah, I believe it's gonna be Smoky Bone's and Pub 99.
2007-03-25 08:07:14 AM  
For those who don't get it... Great White played a show in Providence, RI a few years ago, lets say it did not go well. If my memory serves me right, about 100 people died in the fire which ensued after the pyrotechnics went haywire.
2007-03-25 08:10:42 AM  
Actually, it was a town south of Providence called West Warwick.
2007-03-25 08:12:32 AM  
Here's(p) the story on it
2007-03-25 08:16:25 AM  
MyNameWasPicked has it right. There were fireworks set off inside the Station Night Club during a Great White concert. The sound-proof foam on the walls was highly flammable and the place went up like it was dipped in lighter fluid. It wasn't long before this happened that the West Warwick fire inspector gave the place a clean bill of health. What happened to that fire inspector? It's Rhode Island, so absolutely nothing, of course. He'll retire on a nice tax-payer financed health/pension benefit package.

MyNameWasPicked: For those who don't get it...

Has there been a new influx of 12 year-olds here or something?
2007-03-25 08:31:33 AM  
I changed the wikipedia entry for this. It says only the beginning of the video was caught on tape, but I have watched tape of the whole fire that I got off some filesharing. Very disturbing to watch those people stuck in the front door

2007-03-25 09:03:05 AM  
Was the act the Blue Flamers?

Being a strip joint, was it a Flash Fire?

/scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High comes to mind.
2007-03-25 09:03:41 AM  
wasn't a Yuko Tamura in the band?

What's "Great White" in Russian? Anybody fluent enough to answer that out there?

Just b/c someone has to say it--

I liked Great White.

/who said that?
//Well played, subby.
///Sorry about the fire, tho. Both of them.
2007-03-25 09:38:37 AM  
2007-03-25 09:39:59 AM  
Well played.

But Great White never broke up and have been touring a lot.

I suspect Dethklok is behind this fire.
2007-03-25 09:52:09 AM  
Even better that the headline below this one on the main page is:

"Now THAT'S a FIRE ... "

/Subby, you're seriously gonna DIAF for that
//and I LOL'd too
2007-03-25 10:24:44 AM  
...and it's posted right after a headline featuring, "Now THAT'S a fire" as it's first words.

Shouldn't GW have learned their lesson? Once bitten, twice shy after all.
2007-03-25 10:37:55 AM  
I chortled.
2007-03-25 10:39:50 AM  
/too many "scary" links this morning
2007-03-25 10:57:39 AM  
I lol'ed.

I feel so dirty.
2007-03-25 10:58:10 AM  
I was working a comedy club in Boston right after the "Great White" fire at the Station Night Club in Rhode Island. One of the opening acts ended with the line:

"I'm not sure what's worse: being burned alive in a fire, or being ushered into eternity with 'Once bit, twice shy' running through my head."

I laughed. Mostly because it's true.
2007-03-25 11:00:58 AM  
I couldnt stop staring at the blue chick in the pictire on the webpage.. so whats the story about?
2007-03-25 11:24:05 AM  
Yeah. Huh-huh. Fire! Fire! Fire!

2007-03-25 11:35:39 AM  
The preliminary accounts indicated that a performer in the show inadvertently set his clothing on fire and that in turn ignited a nearby one-gallon container of flammable liquid

I laughed. I guess I'm a bad person.
2007-03-25 11:51:16 AM  
Some 17,000 people died in fires last year.

Methinks someone sohuld look at the Fire Code in Russia. Like yesterday.

Wait, this isn't a racial thread?

/aisle seat, smoking and on fire FTW
2007-03-25 12:57:05 PM  
Well, Dayum. I've been in a few Moscow night spots that seemed death traps should a fire break out. One happened about a year ago at a different restaurant. A couple of people died there. Who needs codes?
2007-03-25 01:00:29 PM  
best. headline. ever.

/ok, best headline this morning.
