    I think its an outrage that some of Badlands contributions to Seiken CD stick to blogging are never performed on stage like Bonebreaker and Capacity. Is it because there is such hate for Seiken that those songs are ignored by everyone or is it that fact that they are angry at Booker for making a contribution to his CD in 2008 as well as producing it? Thats like the african american community ignoring Michael Jackson “The girl is mine” & Say say say collaboration with Paul Mccartney.

    I think its because Seiken’s rotten singing on that half assed karaoke pile of shit he threw together out of jealousy of Booker’s success is just not worth performing on stage or even in the privacy of one’s roach infested apt.

    Ironic that one cheap midget with a bad hairpiece was the lone member of mle that wouldnt buy the CD out of jealousy . Maybe he should brand his own solo cd with 10 instrumental tracks of his shitty drum playing with his bar mitzvah band which sounds more like a 5yr old banging on an old rusty galvanized steel trash can

    old geezer 833 did anyone ask for your negative opinion?

    Nothing to do with Booker. Booker would gladly perform those songs upon request. It’s George Shea that made the decision and nobody else. The only song Shea likes from the blogging cd is probably the worst one . “Let me tell it to ya” a horrible karaokee rendition of Paul Mccartney Let me roll it from the early 70’s .

    I am still waiting for Chestnut to insert his twin brother Lucky in MLE event to replace him . You will be amazed how much they look alike even though they are a few yrs apart . I doubt anyone would know the difference although his twin is built like a rock and Joey aint

    1. There was technically cheating going on. You can see it in his video from 5:35 to 6:05 as Nathan had a helper eat at least four croquetas. Neither the referees nor the MC caught it. Were deductions made from the total or did he pull an Erik Lamkin? Why wasn’t the judging videotaped? It also goes to show you just how easy it is to cheat during an MLE contest.

    2. Nathan needs to invest in an external microphone and a water-proof camera (see 7:58 to 8:19). I thought he was supposed to be a YouTube superstar with plenty of subscribers who incorporates drones in his videos? More like an Erik Lamkin 2.0 who puts out a crappy product. Can’t even afford a good camera. And most of his subscribers are meatheads on gear.

    3. Getting up an hour before the contest at noon when there is a 45 minute drive, plus traffic and major parking difficulties, is insane. I am not surprised he missed the amateur contest. How late was Nate up the previous night? Does he take the sport seriously?

    4. Static stretches in bed to get loose in the morning when he woke up (er, afternoon)? LOL. You don’t stretch cold muscles like that. You’re asking for an injury. True athletes know you do dynamic stretches to warm up and static stretches to cool down. He is a fake athlete like Erik Lamkin (who claims to be an avid cyclist and work at a bike shop).

    5. Have you seen Carmen Cincotti’s LinkedIn page? He claims to be an engineer, lol. Yeah, just like garbage truck men are “sanitation engineers”. And he claims to be a “Brand Ambassador” for MLE.

    6. There is also a major typo on his LinkedIn page which wold cause any employer to immediately reject him, as well as a grammatical error. I am saving a screenshot before he changes it.

    7. It is clear from reading his LinkedIn page he has trouble writing above his ability, as he is trying to pretend to be something he is not.

    9:24 lol, what a troll… not going to get a rise out of anyone. Give it up.

    By the way, 9:24, you should focus on your own grammar. The period goes inside the quotation mark in the sentence ending in “sanitation engineer.” And, it’s 45-minute drive. Yeah, you need the hyphen.

    Did those razor blades hurt coming out of your ass? Get a life!

    I remember an mle corn beef contest back in 2008 when prior to the contest paramedics were working feverishly on chestnut in the back room to control an excessive amount of bleeding through his nose.The contest was delayed while Rich Shea came up with a story that chestnut will be here shortly hes busy signing autographs.

    You are all talk Erik. Unti you conquer El Toro, like all good Southern California athletes and YouTubers have, you will always be a fake athlete. It is close to you so you have no excuse of not going. It’s been done by cyclists, skateboarders and scooter riders.

    Videos of athletes conquering El Toro:

    The following is the YouTube video of the year for 2016:

    Erik, ignore this asshole. You know your athletic and eating ability . Nothing to prove to a troll. Your fans and friends appreciate you and that is all that matters.

    El Toro real name is Jeremiah Jimenez a legendary competitive eater from Las Vegas. BTW the kid with the white lettering on his hat looks like a very young version of Chip Simpson.
