  1. WTF is FLAC and what do you listen to it on?

    FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a form of lossless audio. In simple terms, it's a format meant to compress the large file size of raw lossless audio, such as a WAV file.To play them on a computer you can use a number of different media players - VLC is probably the most common one. You do need to convert them to a different format to put them on an iPod or other device - my top choice for Windows in Trader's Little Helper (Which handles a lot of other lossless codecs as well), and XLD if you're on OSX. I know there are ways to burn FLAC directly to an audio CD, but I don't know offhand what programs you can use to do that - it's been ages since I've burned an audio CD.

  4. New Toho Godzilla in 2016

    I'll be seeing it in theaters when it shows here.
  5. Vegas round 2?

    If they do NYE, I can't make that. I'll be in Boston the 28th through the 31st for the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, as is my tradition.
  6. Also, for anyone trying to plan anything, keep in mind that Frankfurt and London with both almost surely get a second show each.
  7. Axl/DC DVD

    It wasn't the best gig, but there's some pretty good footage of MSG.
  8. See ya there or at the very least we'll catch up in London even if you don't make the gig No mention in the press release yet. If anything, it will only be maybe 2-3 songs difference. I'm planning to do Newcastle, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff, and London.

    Shit, most native speakers can't get that right

    Fucking amazing gig last night -easilythe best of the six I saw on this leg of the tour. For starters, everyone was firing on all cylinders. Angus was eating up every moment, and Axl was laying down some of the best vocals I've ever heard from him. Every single song was flawless - even the pre-chorus on Hells Bells was unbelievable, gotta be the best Axl has ever done that one. I had no expectations of getting anything extra last night - I thought, at most, they might swap something out for Touch Too Much. But holy shit, when Axl said "We're gonna try something here..." after Riff Raff, as he always does when they really mix things up in GN'R, I just about lost it. And they launched into Problem Child, and Iabsolutelylost it. Problem Child was ahugesurprise, maybe bigger than some people realize. I have mentioned this story to a few people, but I don't think I've actually posted it on the forum yet. I saw Anthrax in Detroit the day after the Detroit gig, and I was talking to this guy who apparently knows Axl pretty well, because he said he spent about an hour and a half talking to him after the gig. He mentioned that Axl had practicallybeggedAngus to do Problem Child, and they didn't get it together in time for the US leg of the tour. So basically, I had it in the back of my mind that Problem Child wasn't even really a possibility to get played at all. FTATR was pretty emotional for me - knowing that it was the last song Cliff would perform with AC/DC, but also knowing it was possible it would be the last song AC/DC ever played, it really got to me. Especially when Angus dragged Cliff out onto the catwalk, that was so damn cool of him. I also loved Axl's little touch of introducing the band at the end. Just a perfect end to a perfect gig! It was great to spend the day and the gig with @downzy, @Estranged Reality, and @highvoltage- I couldn't have asked for a better crew to have for that gig! Especially cool that I got to meet HV for the first time for an AC/DC show - I know a few people here know this already, but HV and I originally met on the old AC/DC forumlongbefore either of us joined MyGNR. So yeah, getting to see AC/DC with HV was very much a sort of coming-full-circle moment for me. Thanks for a great night guys, definitely never gonna forget that one
  13. Next tour, Tommy Stinson on bass?

    I love Tommy, but he'd be a terrible fit.
  14. Any soundboard or great audio recordings available?

    Doubt any will show up. Not too many IEM recordings in Europe or the US - the vast majority come from Japan.
  15. UK tour announcement on Friday.
