He sounds like a bit of a prick.
innit.

i never quite believed the story of him putting out a joint and shoving it into his pocket (but i obviously still had a laugh with it). now it seems like it couldn't be a lie.


This 100% happened. A guy like Brian 'Kickin' Up A Storm' McBride would not invent a story that mundane. Also, a large balding Septic Tank hanging out with some mad Glaswegians is surreal enough in itself, without the need for embellishment.

"i never quite wanted to believe" would have been a much better choice of words, not doubting Brian at all, he always seemed like a really genuine, naturally funny person. i just can't seem to conceive that anyone would think doing that with a joint is in any way acceptable. what a cunt.

doing that for a laugh would be funny, doing it with intent and a straight face and I'd have lost him pretty quickly.

Did you lot still hang around in his company? Thought the scots at least wouldn't stand for this behaviour. Should have tried to relight the joint through his pocket.

I can still remember the reaction on the forum when Ben posted some pics of his night out in Glasgow. Everyone presumed Kickin' Up A Storm would look like an alcoholic tramp. But he actually had the chiselled jaw of a Hollywood leading man :D I think Kat booked a flight to the UK that same day.

Grim news about Ben though. I never particularly got on with him or interacted with him outside the forum but early 40s is no age to go.

It's what Ben would have wanted

There was also the time when he had the tickets for a show but he didn’t make it because he tore his ACL on his way back home and had to go to a doctor, but he didn’t have insurance, so he went to a relative, who operated on him, so he couldn’t make the gig. So I missed out on it.

Hahahahaha. That’s very true. :D

Ah, I have hundreds a of Ben stories. I’ll share more if people want to hear them.

Like the time he asked me to buy tickets to see Clinic. And buy him a beer too.
He said he started a company, and his partners were going to buy him out.

But his lawyer that was representing him was arrested for something unrelated. Therefore he was learning law and he was representing himself for a while due to some loop hole. But he said he was gonna get a LOT of money out of it.

His name was Benjamin Pedersen if anyone can find out some more info about him. Never found an obituary.

There was also that time he was in China. He said that he hacked some Internet cafe and was able to go on Twitter and stuff. I asked him to take pictures. He said his phone’s camera stopped working.

Emotional thread.

“Henry” is someone I’d completely forgotten about tbh. He was a highly intelligent mountain of a bloke. I remember reading his posts and being in complete awe: “Here he is again, the black Buddha”

I enjoyed reading his philosophical ramblings, he tried very hard to deal with depression by posting on here. I hope Henry is alive and well.

and let’s not forget about the “how big is your penis thread” where let’s be honest, everyone waited nervously for weeks for Henry to post. Pretty sure Karl was the first to post giving it the big I am, quickly followed by abs saying that his 5 inch penis was perfectly effective and that size didn’t really matter because you know he was the only person in the world with access to BRAZIL - a few weeks later Henry finally posts and completely destroys the field, I think he apologised for not posting quickly, and gave the excuse of wanting to understand the philosophy behind penis measuring techniques / methods. What a fucking legend.
