Thread: Something terrible -- Paris, Eagles of Death Metal (maybe)

    Default Something terrible -- Paris, Eagles of Death Metal (maybe)

    Some terrible terrible things going on in Paris right now. More than 100 dead from terrorist attacks.
    NY Times reporting hostages taken at concert hall (looks like Bataclan): http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...g-attacks.html Zoom the map and look at the location.
    Schedule of events from Bataclan: http://www.bataclan.fr/events.php -- Eagles of Death Metal

    No matter who, what, where, when ... this is all around terrible and sad.

    It's true.
    More than 100 dead at concert alone.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...82f_story.html
    "At the concert hall, there were reports of gunfire and explosions as security forces moved in on hostage takers who had stormed a concert by an American rock band."
    "France’s deputy mayor, Patrick Klugman, said at least 118 people were killed at the concert hall alone. The final death toll was not immediately know but was expected to be considerably higher."

    The band said they're trying to figure out if the band and crew is even alive. Fucking wild

    "She said she spoke to her son’s wife, who said that the band members had managed to flee the concert hall when the attack began. The fate of several crew members remains unknown, she said."

    Sounds like the band made it out.

    Some posts in the default thread. Brooklyn Vegan Updated their page with EODM's Update stating there were members and crew that had not been accounted for.

    Heard on the radio that Josh made a communication saying they were ok.

    But 118 confirmed dead at the venue. Jesus fucking Christ.

    Definitely feels like a personal attack in a way since music is such an escape for so many of us, the exact place we go to get away from bullshit like this.

    Having seen Jesse and the band a few weeks ago in LA and seeing the love they had for the fans and the fans in return, I can't even imagine how this begins to get processed. Can picture exactly how much fun everyone there was having right up until everything went to shit, as this band is purely about having a good time and dancing your ass off. Crushing.

    Perfectly said JustSteve. As someone who uses music to escape from life and its harsh reality at times this attack hits me in an personal way that none before has. I can only imagine the pain if the young men and women that are lucky to survive this must be feeling and will have to endure for a long time. Or the feeling that all the loved ones who just thought their friend or family member who was just going out to enjoy a show never to come back must be feeling. And most of all the tragic loss of life for people that in all likelihood believed in peace, love and respect for all. I can't help but think of all the shows that I have been to and will go to and how it is the last place I would think something like this would happen.

    MSNBC just reporting that EODM's managment has told them a member of the band is among the slain victims.

    and NBC reporting it also. http://www.nbcbayarea.com/entertainm...347921681.html

    Hopeully wrong.

    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    So all the band members are ok and will be heading home, tour canceled obviously. One of the crew may not have made it, though. Damn.

    A bunch of people were there from another forum I have frequented over the years. All got out safe, but one was shot a couple times it sounds like, will survive.

    just reminds us that there is no shying away from this fight. these Muslims hate us for who we are, our life style and our democracy. I'm sickened and disgusted by this and see no difference from these poor French kids and any of us attending a show here in the states. glad to see some gains on the battlefield this week in both Syria and Iraq, and a special delivery for jihadi john. hopefully the world will redouble its effort and resolve to defeat this warped ideology but it's going to be a long, tough slog...many of these would-be assassins are hiding among the masses, getting radicalized online and waiting for their chance to be "martyred." the world has to galvanize around defeating this sinister, jaded ideology.

    Should've screen capped that NBC "1 Band Member dead," headline. Schotty journalism covered by the edit & delete buttons.

    I'm leaving for Europe for my honeymoon on December 1st. Flying into London. Was gonna spend a few days there, then a few days in Paris, then a few days in Dublin, and am eventually flying out of Dublin on December 15th. Would you guys still go to Paris? Just three weeks after this tragedy? I know this shit can happen anywhere. Never been to Paris before.

    Paris is wonderful. I was there in January about a week after the Charlie Hebdo shooting and everything was fine. Security was really beefed up and there were police on the corner of every street. We had an amazing time and it was definitely worth it. It will probably be even safer now since they will be on such high alert.

    I agree with the above comments. I love the city and my only regret each time I visited was that I wasn't there longer.

    If I could hang out in Paris tomorrow I'd do it. Amazing city. Make sure and go to the Marché Bastille. I felt after the half dozen or so open air markets (including the one in Versailles) that Bastille was the best one.

    Speaking of Versailles, highly recommend this if you are into biking

    Great way to see the palace grounds, weather permitting.

    Hell yes, go to Paris! I have my wife to thank for getting me to the louvre, musee d'orsay and musee Rodin...highlight of our visit was checking out these museums, much to my surprise.

    I think anyone who has been to Paris before would go back in a heartbeat. The inner arroindoisements are fantastic and are worth exploring in all seasons if you've never been there. A lot of the tension in the community (from my understanding) lies outside of the areas most well-traveled by tourists. It's your honeymoon, do honeymoon things...not a lot of better places to do those than in Paris.
