Had to make a topic on it. JLB is :metal

-waits for Milena to post her gifs-

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Gotta say that now it completely makes sense why he is digging a hole during instrumental breaks. He's been going crazy otherwise.  :lol

Yeah, I have no idea what the cakeless person in that analogy is meant to be eating. If he's got some sort of cake substitute, it should really have been worked into the narrative at some point. As it stands, the options are:

  • Hoard a cake just to stare blankly into its doughy edifice.
  • Make futile chewing motions with your mouth while starving to death.

I'd seen this a long time ago, but given the events that have transpired since, the fact that they were playing THAT SONG, and what James did, is just hilarious.

Also be sure to check his signature stage running with a cloak:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofyFiRWDb2Q&t=9m

Also, he unbelievably stays out for most of Overture 1928 to dance, and even starts directing the chants of the crowd at some point!

He stayed on stage during the instrumental section of Metropolis?! :o :omg:

His dance during Overture :lol

EDIT: At the Helsinki show in 2007 James' pants reportedly cracked and when he came back on stage during Blind Faith, he was wearing a towel. I can't find the video where he acknowledges this during the verse of the song, but you can see the towel on him in this clip.

It's the craziest I have ever seen him go. The only other similar performance recorded was that of the first coming to brasil in September 97 (DVD still available in the bootleg thread).  :)

My God, so did he actually have to wear the towel for the rest of the show? Or did he use one of the longer instrumental sections to go change? That's hilarious.  :lol

Looking at the setlist, Surrounded was the next song and while the quality of this video isn't great, it looks like he has pants on again (that sounds so perverted! :lol)

Yeah, I was there. He had the towel only in Blind Faith. It was quite weird because he didn't say anything about it, I heard it later from somebody.

But really, that video!! This is the only video I have seen where JLB is on the stage the whole instumental sections, Metropolis and Overture 1928. This is also the only video where James is so full of power and energy, I liked it! Just wondering if he didn't have any place to go during the instrumental sections in that gig or if he only had the best evening ever!  :lol

He didn't say anything? I remember seeing a video where he says something like "I cracked my fucking pants!", but I can't find it on YT anymore. Maybe I'm mistaken then...
This is also the only video where James is so energy, powah!

On the Six Degrees tour, they had a little percussion area set up on stage where James would go during the instrumental sections to play tambourine or shakers or whatever.
