  1. Need your help!

    Just to clarify the above: We do NOT need or want anything to do with Tokyo 92 that's already been released. That show was video taped, so an "HD release" won't help. On top of that, we've all heard all of the audio a million times. We'd all love to get to get completely new, unheard live audio & video. Should be super easy to produce seeing as there's a ton of it available.
  2. US Politics/Elections Thread

    As many people on here know, I am extremely limited in my knowledge of politics. Partially because of the quarantine boredom and partially because of the social issues happening today, I've taken in more political information in the past 3 weeks than I had in the previous 15 years. So anyway, due to all of that, I'm starting to learn about prominent figures on both side of the arguments. Today I came across some dude named Ben Shapiro who seemed like a parody account to me. From everything I've seen in the past few hours, he appears to be a genuine thing and not some sort of comedy routine. Do I have that right? Is this guy for real? Edit- I promise the above isn't trolling. I honestly thought this dude was some sort of comedy act, so I apologize if someone here is a big fan. No offense intended.
  3. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Do you ever have any sources to share for this non stop barrage of doom & gloom you're constantly posting in this thread? So you're trying to tell me Trump may have made a claim that ended up not being true? I don't believe it lol
  4. Chinese Democracy Vinyl

    The 300g thing could easily be a typo if it was listed on ebay or Discogs. Who knows really. Dammit. Now I'm back on a kick of wanting to just pull the trigger on an EU pressing. I was off that kick for a few days lol
  5. Chinese Democracy Vinyl

    No way they're 300g. The heaviest record I've ever heard of is 200g. I'm not sayijg there's no such thing as a 300g record, but if there is, I've never heard of it. In any case, the US pressings are 180g. I'm guessing the EU pressing is 180g as well. Thickness of the actual vinyl wouldn't have anything to do with the inner groove distortion either way though.
  6. Both interviews were a lot of fun too! The lead singer of The Nixons was a very cool guy and the lead singer of Royal really does have an amazing story.
  7. New episode is out. We talked about music videos but the focal point for me is an interview I did with a new band called Royal. We had their lead singer on and his story is amazing. Here's some links to places to check it out: Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/all-about-the-visuals-baby-w-royal/id1497445845?i=1000477995541 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/5QDB6OmkcFZ7NLmY1MZ79p All other podcast outlets: https://linktr.ee/Infectiousgroovepodcast
  8. Chinese Democracy Vinyl

    Yep. It's what's commonly known as "inner groove distortion" but the US pressing of Chinese Democracy has the worst case of it that I've ever heard. I always tell people to use The Blues as an example. When you start the song, it sounds amazing. Then about half way through the song, it becomes so distorted it's almost unlistenable. Then the rest of the side sounds worse and worse. I keep hearing the European pressing doesn't have these issues so I'm going to get one eventually.
  9. NITL live videos on youtube

    I did see your original post regarding GN'R not posting on social media for two weeks. What I was replying to was your further comment that GNR has somehow made progress since Slash & Duff came back. I mostly agree with the last part of your last post except that it's not everything that happens "on here" that's the problem. It's GN'Rs complete inability to move forward and their complete disregard for their fans that causes the situation we're all in now.
  10. NITL live videos on youtube

    LOL, what? There really wasn't a lot of build up in 2016. Slash put something on his ig page, then a think Duff did, then the Troub and Vegas shows happened, then the tour. Am I forgetting some other build up that happened? Also, we were talking about 2016, we were talking about now. Slash & Duff have just been going through the motions like any other paid member of GN'R since 2001 or so.
  11. NITL live videos on youtube

    You missed the point entirely. What Slash and Duff accomplished with GN'R previously has nothing to do with their current role. Their current role is to do exactly what I said: play more or less the same setlist every night, then cash a pay check.
  12. Thanks for listening! Live has a lot of songs I love. I think The Dolphins Cry is my favorite, but Lightning Crashes is a great one of course.
  13. NITL live videos on youtube

    Slash & Duff are merely doing what Tommy and DJ/Robin/Ron did: playing the same setlist every night with little to no effort and cashing a paycheck. Doesn't seem like progress to me.
  14. Floyd Discussion

    I don't hear anything remotely similar between that and Comfortably Numb.
  15. Reckless Road podcast!

    Someone told me Jason was trying to get ahold of me. Haven't heard anything yet.
  16. The Hangover/I'm an Alcoholic Thread

    I think I might be the most hungover anyone has ever been.
  17. WTF Finck Solo

    And that's the thing; I wasn't waiting for the original GN'R sound. I'd already seen and heard the original GN'R sound, so I was more than happy to move past it.
  18. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    I just recently went on about how much I love Straight Lines on my podcast. I still can't believe that single and the album Young Modern weren't huge hits.
  19. Need your help!

    Every alternate mix of the album tracks that are available. A few soundboard shows from the tour along with a couple of unseen, remastered for HD, full length footage of concerts too. Oh, and I would like for it to be priced correctly out of the gate so I don't have to wait a year to pay the price it should've been in the first place
  20. WTF Finck Solo

    I totally misread your original question, my bad. I like nin but don't love them. Robin's work in GNR is really the thing I'm most familiar with that he's done.
  21. WTF Finck Solo

    Off the top of my head? Everything in Estranged.
  22. WTF Finck Solo

    I'm not saying this in a shitty way, but I've never understood what's so hard for others to understand. Slash was in GNR, did some great work with them, then left. Another guy (Finck) came along, played Slashs stuff as well or better (IMO, in some cases) then added a ton of his own personality and style to the band. Then he ended up playing my favorite GNR solo (TIL) on my favorite GNR album (CD). All of which is in addition to the kick ass work he did on the rest of that album. So, in short, it's very easy for me to prefer Robin to Slash.

  24. US Politics/Elections Thread

    That's the thing: literally anyone besides Trump is a better choice.
  25. Put two more episodes in the can over the past few days. One will be out tomorrow, the other will be out Monday.
