I want the 2nd L.A. night poster, but I don't feel right about buying after the fact. Waaaa.
1st world problems.
Merry Christmas Eve! Have I got a story for you all...
So a neighbor comes over, asking if they can use the oven for a bit. My mom goes over afterwards and talks to her, and they chit chat. In the small talk, the woman asks how Im doing. My mom says "Oh he just got back from Chile." She asks what I went there for. "To see Faith No More..."
The woman pauses. "Wait, really? My son in law is Mike Bordin. He's coming over in an hour for dinner. You should send your son over, Mike will get a kick out of this."
Tonight. Tonight just got a whole lot better
lolwat?!? that's freakin awesome!
happy holidays everyone!

Small world- that is amazing! Can't wait to hear the rest of the story!!
So at first, I was planning to stop by for a minute, say Hi and then let him get on his way. I didn't want to intrude on him, since he drove down with his family for a dinner. But he was the nicest guy. We ended up talking for over an hour, and he was sincerely interested in talking to me.
He kept saying how grateful the band was for the fan response, and how that made it all worthwhile to them. I even told him that I didn't want to intrude, but I talked with his whole family and they were all so nice, offering food and drinks and just chatting.
What a random event, we talked for atleast an hour and finally I had to leave to go to my own dinner, and we could have easily continued for another hour. He and his family were so amazingly nice and funny, he even said he's going to try to bring me some tour memorabilia tomorrow when they come back. I told him that he didn't have to, and he said "The fans mean so much, we'll do anything to help give back."
HOLY FUCK! IT'S A HOLIDAY MIRACLE!
Erik you're my hero Merry fucking Xmas!
FlyingV, that was a cool story bro...no, seriously. Remarkable.
Erik.....you have officially become as big of a whore as Karina! I hate you both!
That is UNREAL!!!! Talk about a Christmas miracle. You don't live on 34th street do you?
It's always funny until someone gets hurt........and then it's just hilarious.
As cool as that story is I think it's time to let this thread die
Congratulations, Erik. That’s a great victory.
It’s funny reading posts on other FNM blogs where people get all bent and are obviously jealous / threatened when other FNM fans score those rad backstage pass moments.
I don’t get that.
I hear that one of the regulars on this thread scores a unique backstage pass moment and my first thoughts are a very strong and profound gut feeling that says “Awesome! I’m very happy for you.”
This is what happens when late 30+-year-old ex-ravers still go out to shows …
If this thread dies, where will we go? What will we do? As Mike pointed out, people on the FNM blog are a-holes - people here are a-holes too but I at least they are a-holes I like.
Anyway, if this does die, I think Erik should post his FB profile picture here first because it is the best thing ever!
Ah, Iím going to miss that FNM 2.0 site.
Remember when we used to be able to comment on it? That was so 2010...
All of a sudden I feel like Iím 6-years-old and some parent is taking the football away from the entire group just because 1 person doesnít know how to play nice.
This thread can't die, it's been great for news for other bands such as Melvins and Patton's other work. Maybe rename it "Ipecac/Related" or something stupid, I don't know. But it should stay open and intact.
Oh and I got a package from Bordin delivered here, he gave me a signed Auckland poster and signed FNM drumsticks that were made for the tour, each with a personalized message. We were talking about posters that night, how they made sure to have a special one for each show and I mentioned some I thought were completely badass, one being the Auckland one (with the skull and snake). And he signed it for me from his personal stash! What a great guy
And by popular demand;
So has there been any more whispers about any kind of performance by Mike Patton this year? It's getting close to the final push before the lineup is announced
Erik - super duper awesome!! Love that poster!
Bobchella - my money is on Fantomas...
after signing up forever ago & many attempts of failed log in here I am.
Some of you know me, some dont....Hi Karina, Aleem, Wendy, Whitney!
Hello, I'm Jenn! I was at fnm LA both nights and meet a handful of you guys.
If you wish to stop chatting about fnm or related projects here in this thread then
I invited you over to my make shift forum where you can go on & discuss whatever you like....
