ew, balut?  I'll try a lot of things, but no thanks.

Who goes to New Orleans to eat balut?

He was much funner when he was having coke fueled threeways with whores.

"ex"-frontman? Where have I been?
 
2013-10-24 06:23:29 AM  
I heard he got kicked out of BNL because drugs

I saw BNL's first show after getting rid of him and they were still awesome

From this and a quick look at his Wiki, it sounds like this guy is pretty farked up

empres77: "ex"-frontman? Where have I been?


They're not exactly a front page band anymore, so it was easy to miss. One of their songs after the split is basically Ed pleading with Steve to work it out.

Wife and I have seen them twice since the split. Still a ton of fun at the concerts, but his vocals are definitely noticeably absent. The other guys do a good job filling in, but don't have the same chops.

Shouldn't "amateur foodie" read as "anorexic"?

/ Lost interest right around One Week, but Gordon and their first live album are masterpieces.

BNL has carried on reasonably well after his departure but I still miss his voice in their lineup.

He always seemed to voice the darker songs.

Balut is worth a try.

It's been one week since he looked at me.
 
2013-10-24 08:16:45 AM  
I enjoy playing "One Week" on Rock band 3. It's one of the few songs I can even SING.

That is all.
 
2013-10-24 08:29:10 AM  
Interesting.  And I miss his voice.  But they still rock.

I've had balut and I liked it.

I was so confused reading this headline, because I was thinking: "Isn't Ed the one with the travel show?"

Good to hear that Steven hasn't spiraled down after the bizarre drug arrest (he was busted via his kitchen window, for cryin' out loud!) I know he's released stuff since then, but that isn't always an indication that an accidental OD isn't right around the corner.
 
2013-10-24 08:43:36 AM  
Thanks, that was fun.

A Bourdain knock-off show? It's all been done before.
 
2013-10-24 08:57:28 AM  
wtf is a foodie?  someone who eats whatever is put in front of them as long as it's made from bugs or pureed cat shiat?

My first college roomate was a HUGE fan of them, and decided that I needed to be one too. Our stereo was set to loop one of their CDs pretty much all day. After a week of that, his cunning plan only succeded in me punching him, moving out, and hating that farking band and their shiat music to this day. If this article was about that band being gang raped by men in India and subsequently set on fire, I would consider this my best day ever.

One Week? Gordon? Pfft. I still have this:

i can never remember, is steven the one with the more nasaly voice? if so, i don't know if i could really enjoy bnl's newer stuff. i haven't heard any of their post-split stuff. actually the lack of either stephen or ed would be a big factor, as they play off each other really well.

i saw them once...frankfurt, germany, around 99/2000/2001...??? they opened for bryan adams. i went strictly for bnl and didn't plan to stick around for adams, but a 34 year old incredibly hot swedish chick was there for bryan adams and wanted to dance with me. this is the sort of thing that NEVER happens to me...EVER! like many european women, she was very straightforward telling me ahead of time she didn't want to take me home, just fun at the concert...i was ok with that. and honestly thoroughly enjoyed bryan's show...he rocks live!

i realized very early into bnl's set that they were pretty much unknown newcomers there...which was strange to me, having enjoyed their music for a few years already
 
2013-10-24 09:11:40 AM  
I saw him solo appearance post-BNL at the Calgary Folk Fest. It was sad but nice to see him out there trying in the face of all that bad press and a small mid-day crowd. I don't like BNL without him, but then I saw 'em play live 4 times starting with their first western Canada tour in '92 and I think Steven's horny party-boy was an essential part of their makeup.

My eldest son was right into their music when he was 10. We actually took him to a concert (which was quite good).

I don't even want to be in the same room as balut. A couple of co-workers tried it last year; the sight is bad enough, but the smell is just wrong. And that's coming from someone who occasionally eats natto.

The smell isn't bad.

It smells like you are cooking duck and eggs in the same room.

Maybe, if your roommate had also died there a week ago and was still decomposing on the floor.

I have ate them a few times and the smell wasn't a problem.

It isn't a rotten egg, or anything that would cause it to have a "gross" smell. Unless the smell of hard boiled eggs grosses you out, it was probably in your head, or something else being cooked.

Just went to their concert on Tuesday - they do still rock, even if they are noticably different than they used to be.  First saw them 18 years ago, wife has been a fan even longer, since she heard them when she was stationed in Canada.

The band took a bit to get back up to pace after Steven left, but their new single, "Odds Are" is classic BNL and the Rooster Teeth-produced, TV news-skewering video is hilarious.

In college circa 1998/99, we were still finding elbow macaroni at the back of the stage weeks after BNL had played there.

I went on the Ships and Dips cruise, two of them.  They were awesome on that.  Walked around chatting with everyone and joining the other bands on stage late at night/early morning.

It's always the quiet ones, isn't it? Steven Page, Paul Ruebens, Peter Murphy. Any day now, I expect to hear that one of those beardy guys from Mumford & Sons will be found buttchugging Everclear while sodomizing a beehive in a portable shiathouse.
