Hello everyone!  I'm new to the community, but I've been on and off livejournal forever.  My love for BNL, however, has not.  To date I have seen them five times in concert, but all of these have been before Steven Page made his exit/got the boot/what have you (I've seriously heard so many stories on this that I just prefer to simply say "he's not there anymore.")  Actually, I think I was at his last concert with them.  It was last New Year's Eve in Detroit and I think it was their 20 year anniversary show.  It was awesome.

Age?  26.

Favorite songs:  Wind It Up, For You, Falling for the First Time, Alcohol, It's All Been Done

Other favorite groups:  Coldplay, the Beatles, Flogging Molly, Queen

Other fandoms:  Disney animated movies, House MD, the Big Bang Theory

Hobbies:  writing, story boarding, doodling, and sadly, job hunting.

Also, quick question.  As you can see from the above survey, I love the show The Big Bang Theory, which of course, BNL did the theme song for.  Here's my situation.  Weeks ago, I was broke.  And I'm talking about BAAAA-ROKE!!  But as i was browsing iTunes, I spotted the full version of the Big Bang Theory theme.  Sadly, couldn't buy it then.  Now I have the spare dollar to get it and guess what?  I can't find the Big Bang theme anywhere!  It's gone!  I do a search for it and get Ludacris or something.  Nothing!

So does anybody have a copy of the Big Bang Theory theme they'd be willing to share?  i'd love you forever!  KThanx!!

I'm hoping someone here can help me, because this is driving me crazy. I saw BNL in Salt Lake a couple of weeks ago. During their set they played a few new songs. One of them had Kevin on lead, and I absolutely loved it. It was a song about how sometimes life sucks, but it'll get better. If I remember right, he said he'd written it about his battle with cancer? And I think the word 'light' was in the title? I know, I'm not very helpful. But does anyone know the name of the song I'm talking about? Thank you! :)

Story time. Stick with me here, friends.

So as I listening to a Blog Talk Radio show the other day, a certain Canadian by the name of Colin Mochrie and his dear improving friend Brad Sherwood were on the show. I'm a huge fan of Whose Line and all those guys, so I gave a listen. Near the end of said radio show, someone phoned in a question asking what thier favorite songs where. Songs that they could listen to over and over again. (I didn't phone in, but I was glad someone asked that, because i'm always curious about people's music tastes.) Colin answered saying that the song "The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel" by the Barenaked Ladies. Of course I had heard of the band before, but I don't think I had heard much past their huge hits they played on the radio. The night following, out of curiosity, I decided to download the entire album that the particular song came on - during said process, I also came across thier "All Thier Greatest Hits" CD and downloaded that as well. (All legally, in case you were wondering.) I went on a trip the following weekend out of town for Memorial Day, and took the oppurtunity of the long car trip to listen to both albums in full.

In short, i'm sure i've fallen in love with this band.

I just need to know what is the best source/place to read a good band bio, band history and ect (BESIDES wikipedia) - and what album should I buy next from this point?
Anything anyone wants to tell me, ect? I want to hear from longtime fans of the band.

Thank you, everyone. :)

I had the incredible opportunity to see the band perform tonight at a small bar. They played almost entirely new material, about 14 or 15 songs I'd say.

I have to say, it all sounds really awesome. I may be one of the most biased people in the world when it comes to this band, but I can say that I am really excited to hear this material put to record. There are at least a half-dozen stellar songs, and the rest are not bad even a little bit. There's definitely a shift in the sound without Steve there, but that is to be expected. And on top of that, the new material doesn't have the 'hole' in it like a lot of the old material has without Steve's presence. In short, I don't think the fans have anything to worry about concerning new material.

So yeah, just thought I'd share with everyone here, and hope everyone is excited as I am for the new album.

For those of you who don't know, I'm moving to the UK possibly within the year,and have been scaling back all my possessions. This is probably the first of several BNL related items for sale I'll be posting, as I'd rather this stuff go to fans over ebay.

Cleaning out my closet I found an XL Barenaked Athletics Hoodie. It is missing the drawstring for the hood, but it is otherwise in perfect condition. I can count on one hand the number of times I wore the shirt. Asking $35, includes US shipping. International to be determined based on location.

I also have a Barenaked Athletics Pewter Keychain. The Keychain is well-worn, since it resided on my keychain for several years. Asking $4, includes US shipping. International, $5 with shipping.

The last item I found in my clean-out - Barenaked for the Holiday's Santa Hat. Never worn. Asking $10, includes US shipping. International to be determined based on location

All items are from a smoke-free home. I DO have a cat, however. All clothing items have been washed, dried and then immediately kept away from the cat though. I accept paypal only, though we can make arrangements for other forms of payment if you really need to.

I'm willing to offer a discount if you want all three items!

Well, Ladies Fans, here it is.

The board tape from our first show as a 4 Piece band, live from Universal Studios, Orlando, March 7th at the 2009 Mardi Gras celebrations.
Yes, we were excited.
Yes, we were nervous - definitely more excited than nervous though which propelled the energy level to heights normally associated with 90's era BNL, not to mention the good vibes from the 14,000 or so of you that showed up to kick off the new era.

Upon listening you'll hear us getting our sea-legs after a couple of songs.
You'll also hear our sound man of 18 years, Robin Billinton, figuring out where back-up vocals are coming from, as myself, Ed, Kev, and Jim all try to remember our new parts. There's nothing like a good old fashioned Learning Curve to keep a bunch of seasoned pro's on their toes! We hope you enjoy it... warts and all!!

We're all very grateful to the folks at Universal for having Barenaked Ladies down to Florida to play, despite the recent change in our line-up. Their faith in us gave us the opportunity to get back to what we do best - rocking our songs for you, and for each other.
I think we're gonna be OK, Y'all!

On behalf of Ed, Jim, Kevin, and all of our Crew - we thank you for a wonderful, warm night in Orlando. We felt your love, and it propels us.
Four Piece!!!

I know the stories of the now famous BNL Orlando concert last week are all over the message boards, but I wanted to share too.

So when I first got there I felt really really sorry and guilty because a woman was being rude to my mom and my mom said that I could cut in front of the line right in front of her. So I did, but nobody gave a shit except the woman yelling "Security! she's cutting in line!" So I really didn't deserve to be up front to take the photos I'm about to show you.

Well first of all, it was such a surprise that Kevin took over 'shopping', 'sound of your voice' (actually no surprise there), and Steve's original role on 'Million dollars'. Ed took over Get in Line, The Old Apartment, and One Week. Jim took over Steve's part on Maybe Katie, which freaked me out a little (i arrived a little after the sound check).

Okay now here's some pictures!




THIS IS THE BEST ONE! I mean Look at Jim's face in this,  he's totally enjoying that bra.   


MORE UNDERNEATH :DCollapse )

Hi - point of post - I couldn't find a syn feed for Page's new blog, so I created one at the_stevenpages.

Polite intro - various shows since 93, did taping / vids and tree trades in the wayback days of usenet. File me under highly positive about recent events. Sucks, sure, but without Andy they became something new, so I expect good things. And hey, in another 20 years that reunion show will be awesome.

Random story - Taste of New Haven, right after AC left, they ended up going on early than advertised - some very odd older dude in a football helmet and not much else dancing up front, fans running from illegally parked cars when they realized there were late - people yelling "Where's Andy? Where's Andy?" me really tired from the last show - I asked Kevin to sign my cd - he said "I'm not in the band, exactly." I said "You will be." So glad I was right, as much Andy love as I have.

If you haven't seen it, this was just posted at BNL Music:

A MESSAGE FROM BARENAKED LADIES
By mutual agreement, Steven Page will be parting company with the remaining members of Barenaked Ladies. Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson, and Tyler Stewart will continue recording and touring together as Barenaked Ladies. Steven Page will pursue solo projects including theatrical opportunities while the band enters the studio in April 2009, and hits the road in the fall.

Page says "These guys are my brothers. We've grown up together over the past twenty years. I love them and wish them all the best in the future."

The band also wish Steven well in all of his endeavors. Ed Robertson says: "It's the start of a new chapter for all of us. Here's to the future!"

Everyone is looking forward to making new music and thanks their fans for their support.


Wow. :(
