Nardwuar is always best when taken with a liberal dose of Snoop Dogg.

Nardwuar!? Annoying!?

You must be joking! Next you'll tell me that Jack Benny was cheap, Dean Martin was drunk and that Rodney Dangerfield got no respect!?

(schtick. look it up.)

Wow. Interviewers like that should be totally played about with all types of bs anecdotes and answers.

If they come across as retarded, why be serious.
 
2008-05-26 03:27:59 PM  
That was funny, though--the NKOTB kid AND Peter Cetera, both wearing Bauhaus t-shirts in their videos.

"You're My Inspiration"--a goth classic.

nardwuar is probably the last interviewer you'd want to try to BS. the operative word being "try". those that don't get when he's doing and get all huffy about it tend to go down in flames and look like assholes.

That's nothing..check out this (new window) interview he did with Henry Rollins.


Rollins was having none of it.

The whole whacky character with OUTRAGEOUS questions ZOMG LOL!!!111 celebrity interview thing is so played out. It jumped the shark after Stuttering John. Even Ali G was derivative. Give it up.

Wait a minute: more annoying than Terry Gross? I don't believe you.

Canadian and annoying, boy, theres a combination I never considered together before.
 
2008-05-26 05:21:38 PM  
Why in god's name would anyone want to watch something annoying?

After watching a few of his videos I have to say he's not that bad. Sure he's annoying but he really knows his stuff which is way more annoying and far less entertaining.

Rollins feels the same, just check out his face after he hears the 2nd to last question.
 
2008-05-26 06:56:42 PM  
Nardwar rocks. Good interviewer.
only douchebag artists offended. Most love him, or think.. "that guy was wierd, but he was harmless, and knew alot about us."

Keep on rockin in the free world, and
Doo doodle-loot doo...?

Nardwuar is awesome.

ehh, at leat Pete was a sport about it.
:)

You have to give him this: Ive been a Bauhaus fan for 2o years and this was the most introspective thing by far, ive ever seen about the "real" peter murphy or any member of bauhaus


/When rollins complained about his breath and Narduar tells him he had mcdonalds, the look on rollins face is priceless

Most annoying interviewer? I didn't see Larry King anywhere in that video.
 
2008-05-26 11:32:31 PM  
Peter was very accommodating with this moron. Nard-o is like that unwanted high school acquaintance who's drink you spiked with speed: just to see what would happen. Result? Nardwuar.

PS. "Coleen" asking "how did that all come aboooot" warms my Canadian heart.

PPS. I never spiked anyone's drink in high school...with speed.

Nardwuar The Human Serviette is NOT annoying!
Only the lame interviewees that don't get the joke or submitters that can get an easy green-light by insulting one of Canada's finest...

/doo-doo-de-doo-doo
//doo-doo

His annoying-to-comedic-payoff ratio is pretty low, so that makes him fairly annoying. If the interviewees aren't "in" on the joke, then it's just embarrassing for Nard-viette: and it wastes the time of people who are doing actual work, not trying to make a name for themselves pretending to be that unwanted high school acquaintance accidentally hopped up on speed.

Besides, I thought Canada's finest was Air Farce. Now there's comedy

PS. That was sarcasm, the greatest of all the arts.

If an abortion could be filmed in sketch comedy form, the royal canadian air farce would be it

They can't all be SCTV I guess

knock his schtick all you want, the guy does his homework and comes up with questions that shake the artists from the usual "What does this song mean? How has touring been so far?" softballs that they get 100 times a gig.

Wow, that's the first time I've heard the famous "aboot", maybe because I knew it was coming and was listening for it.

shake artists?

Narduwar: "hey, remember when you were in Bauhaus 20 years ago and you came to Vancouver 15 years ago and you ate dinner at...(holds the mike up to Peter Murphy's face in hopes that he will just remember and blurt it out)

Peter Murphy: uh...Mcdonalds?

Yeah, not his best example in this video, but often the bands are visibly surprised by the information he's dug up on them.

and as much as i enjoy his interviews, I cringe everytime he does his signoff bit.
 
2008-05-27 05:29:23 PM  
I love his interviews! He did one with Gene Simmons from KISS and flat-out asked him why they had Tommy Thayer dressed up like Ace Frehley on KISS's recent tour. Gene's expression was hilarious, and he started reciting the tired old answer that Paul Stanley usually says.

Just when I was ready to forgive Canada for Tom Green....

I've hung out with Nardwuar a few times socially, through mutual friends. He's quite shy initially, until he gets going then he's pretty much the same as his tv personna. It might be a schtick but it's sincere. Nice guy, though. A bit odd, but nice.
 
2008-05-28 12:51:06 PM  
He played with his band in my hometown once, gave me a record where the bside was him asking gorbechev what size pants he wore at a press conference. Their opening band was just the band wearing white hoods. They called themselves the skablins. I cant remember the headlining band name.
 
2008-05-28 05:43:40 PM  
Just came to say I love Peter Murphy. I could listen to him talk for hours, if it weren't for that annoying jackass asking him questions.

Peter Murphy is Beautiful
