    Are Coles Notes the Canadian version of Cliffs Notes? Either way, awesome story. Congrats and best wishes.

    Wow, but the thought of that pyramid behind them as they said their vows is almost as amazing as his proposal! Josh!Becky!

    Mark, Mike, Tom, Frank, Jeff, Rob, everyone from the other thread and everyone else. Thank you guys so much. I really did want to do something special for my girl, and I guess I succeeded.
    Tom, to answer your question. I am more excited that I am engaged... but getting onstage with Gogol Bordello, and talking with Eugene Hutz and all the rest the members like they were my friends, just puts this right over the top. They seriously are the coolest guys on earth. I don't know how I could ever thank them.
    As for the youtube videos, besides that guy who wants to send me his video, two or three other people told me to look for the youtube videos within the next couple of days.

    Congrats Josh, this story is fantastic. You'll get to tell it to your kids someday, and when they ask what a gogol bordello is, well, then you'll have a whole lot more to tell.

    I just re-read the story again. If it werent true, I wouldnt have believed it. You know what that was Rage? A PrinceChella Miracle. They've been happening all over the country, and this is no exception. To have everything work out like that so perfectly. Truly amazing. This is one for the books. Mazel Tov!

    Aw, congrats Josh and Becky! Yay!



    Although if anyone ever proposed to me at a Gogol Bordello concert, it would be an automatic no. So it's a good thing Becky likes GB.

    Bryan, if I have anything to do with it, no kids EVER will have to ask "what a Gogol Bordello is." No, but you are right. This will be a great story to tell my kids.

    And Salah, if I can make it happen, I will. THAT would be... unreal. It only costs 20K to book Gogol. Who wants to contribute to the "Get Gogol Bordello to play Josh and Becky's wedding fund"?

    CONGRATS JOSH. YOU ARE THE MAN.

    Seriously. I wish you and Becky all the happiness in existence, and now you have an even larger mission ahead of you: getting Faith No More to reunite for the wedding.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Actually Lee, after the show Becky said "Aw man, how am I going to one up you now?" I replied "Simple, get Faith No More to play our wedding."

    Luka, your coming!

    I certainly hope that a flash-in-the-pan gypsy punk bank is a critical factor in the story of how I get engaged.

    I would deffinitly contribute if it came with a wedding invitation.
    if 400 people paid 50 bucks it could happen.

    I think the only flash-in-the-pan, in your case, will be your performance in the sack.

    I know it can happen.

    edit: also, when jill reads this story, she's probably going to "awwwwwww!" so loud the whole neighbourhood will hear, and then tear up a bit, and giggle and jump around. it's seriously the best proposal story ever, ever.
