Yeah what were you thinking?


Jessmode 4/6/2010 1:49:55 PM

We weren't, we were too busy being teenagers sucking Henry Rollins' c-ck.


Godfatherofsoul 4/6/2010 1:52:10 PM

I always thought the KEN was rather homosexual, I thought it had barbie connotations.


LoydChristmas 4/6/2010 1:55:30 PM

I to, immediately ran to thoughts of Barbie connotations. Is that weird?


Jessmode 4/6/2010 1:56:35 PM

We've also had street fighter and "is that some gay DJ?".

Great band, great music! Come back to Caen, France!


Jessmode 4/6/2010 2:09:07 PM

The best comment I got was from a dude in Paris who notified me that "ken" is a slang term in Paris that refers to BOTH 'fight' and 'fck'. Get in the Van reference aside, I thought that was pretty badass.


withoutashield 4/6/2010 2:11:48 PM

fcking weak, no California.

Bummed on the lack of a New England date, but this band is comprised of gentlemen and scholars and deserve the finest treatment at all of these locations.

Pretty much the LG-approved tour of the year. That said, I'll still be there.
