  2. Are you a nostalgic person?

    Incredibly fascinating topic and one that I have been observing from the inside for the best part of 20 years now. So outsider's opinion incoming. It's a long ass post though: It is disgraceful, but it's such a complicated matter that affects absolutely every aspect of English society. It's all too easy for an outsider to judge and say shame on you Len, for example, but it's not a simple matter of 'support social mobility' or 'don't support social mobility' especially when the only people who benefit from social mobility are the ones who already have a degree of privilege in the first place. Things are very, very slowly changing however. For instance, the last 10 years or so, has seen a swing away from private education at primary school level. Many people from all walks of life do send their children to the local primary school and guess what? Standards have been raised. It's a completely different matter for secondary though. It's just going to take a long time for things to be different. As for what they think of Aussies and Kiwis, well, there is an older generation who still regard us as the 'colonies' and that we're backward and can't read or write, but they're dying out now. Otherwise, foreigners generally get a free pass and they don't hold us to the same class standards that they hold each other to. Aw, you do yourself and your fellow people a disservice, even if you are joking. I've seen my fair share of the world and can honestly say, hand over heart, that British, particularly English people, are among the nicest, most polite, not to mention funny humans I know. I can't really say that of my own people! LOL

    Axl's being outdone
  6. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Hi. I also tend to not post much in this discussion since those opinions in here can be quite harsh. But you make very good points. GnR is a rock band and R&R is meant to be in your face and challenge what one may be comfortable with. I think GnR was very much along those lines in their early years. Like you, I've gained strength and even comfort from him. But that doesn't mean that I idolize him or approve of everything he's done. As for ISE, i always thought it was just a song about those females that do make themselves available to members of bands. Females are the ones that make themselves available. The song is 30+ years old but pretty sure nothing really has changed. UTLH it always came across to me as a pub singalong. My least favorite tract but I was never offended by it.

    And if it happens make sure you whip your phone out a bit lively and get us a nice little video! And mind you don't put your finger over the mic, their dying screams are 50% of it
  8. Living in Other Countries

    Glad you had a good time Gra👍 As an aside has there ever been any incidents your aware of anyone falling into the lava that oozes down the volcano? Any footage about?
  9. The Rose In The Wild FLAC files are sourced from the Pro-Shot Saskatoon video, so it would be considered a soundboard recording.
  10. I can't picture it. Axl and Weiland have very different styles. Not convinced Axl would pull it off convincingly. He never really had a good voice for grunge-rock.
  11. what's up with all these sex scandals?

    But he was after dem boyz...

  13. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Nice said! I am also grateful for Axl, I recognize many of his traits in me (which gives me both self-confidence and a lesson); I also think people are package deal and the same trait can be amazing in one situation and a total flaw in another. People do things and world goes round in unchanging pace, once happened you cannot reverse it, just deal with consequences, and you either take lesson or not (it`s what I respect, ability to overcome not working or destructive patterns). I pick for myself what I take as useful. I`m just not into the right-wrong, good-evil stuff. I can explore perspective which I no way identify with just because it`s possible and forums are good places to do so. People are like music for me, I gravitate towards those who resonate with me, because it`s what I need in certain time. I love Axl`s insights and points which differ from common opinion, because it makes me re-explore topic - and with some research that guy`s understanding goes often deep and unusual way. Other times totally loopy and erratic reactions have interesting spawn. It`s a piece of puzzle to my own world, not "I accept all without critical insight". In many rock`n`rollers bios is mentioned that the world of rockstardom they dreamed as teenagers is actually cleverly disguised hell - but - as I said, package deal, like (dream) job. Some stuff you love and some you hate anyway. It`s all about the gain to be better than price. And I think in any relationship it`s about setting your value and boundaries, if you don`t, you will get abused, sucked of energy and sources and then thrown away. People do this with stuff they gained with no effort. It becomes boring at the end and more of a burden, another nasty true, ISE, in your face.

  15. I'd love it if he at least did Slither. I think he'd tear the shit out of that song.
  16. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Here's my $0.02: I've heard & owned both the 1991 & 2012 versions. I think the 2012 pressings do sound better than the 1991 originals overall. I would be surprised if the 2016 pressings don't use the same plates at the 2012 ones, so they should sound the same. I haven't heard them myself but again, I'd be surprised if it's not the same plates.
  17. The weird part of YouTube

    What in the fuck?
  18. Home Theaters

    I'm upgrading my 65KS9500 to a 65Q9FN in the next couple of weeks. I considered getting some new audio equipment too, but I'm really happy with the sound of my home theater set up, so I think I'm going to hold off on that. I'm super excited about the new TV though!
  19. Of course they can. But some opinions are just ridiculous. :-)
  20. Just a reminder- We cannot allow links to download the video or audio of this show on the main forums.
  21. The weird part of YouTube

    WTF did I just watch? LOL Check this one out
  22. Are those flac files from the soundboard or the audience recording of the Saskatoon show?
  23. GNR Videos Now in 1080p

    I must say, on my smart TV, November Rain looked amazing
  24. I still cant understand why havent they put the so called "new single" on the album tho. It would fit the compact disc just well and the vinyl has a whole side full of nothing where they chose to put a fuckin hologram lol I believe they would attract way more buyers of the vinyl only/CD only edition had they put SOYL on it as most of people considers the mix and master of the original as a masterpiece. Im seriously considering not buying the remastered edition as Im one of those. Its a fuckin re-issue, a bonus track wouldnt kill.
