  3. https://linktr.ee/Infectiousgroovepodcast The new bonus tournament episode is out now. It's a super tough one with Fleetwood Mac - Rumours going up against Prince and The Revolution - Purple Rain! #NoStinkers haha
  4. After YEARS of putting it off, I finally started my own music podcast! You can listen to the first episode right here: https://anchor.fm/infectiousgroovepodcast/episodes/Side-A--Song-1---Pilot-ea929m?fbclid=IwAR3-Bratci1Az0KabR6uCWPB8x82cbRa4R1KkQ1sUksZDRKwmiFbQ7ux8sg This is my very first attempt at recording so it's probably got some rough spots lol. We're shooting to put out a new episode every Monday, so I'll share a link in this thread every time there's a new episode. If anyone has the time to take a listen, I'd love to hear any and all feedback
  5. Oh My God on Vinyl!

    <MJ nerd correction> it's the Beat It jacket, not Thriller, but yeah, I spent YEARS looking for an exact replica of that jacket. It seriously took over a decade to find exactly the one I wanted, so I had to have it. In any case, thank you! I mentioned this before, but it's taken my since early 2011 to get the room the way it is, which has included a lot of help from friends I love sharing the room with people. I held a pre party for the GN'R tour kick off back in 2016 and we had a blast all day! I have people over nearly every Friday to spin records and we always have a great time. If you ever find yourself near Detroit for any reason, hit me up!
  6. RussTCB Stepping Down

    Hello MyGNR Fam I've made a very hard decision that I'm going to share with all of you now: as of this post, I am leaving the MyGNR forum staff. I have a lot of things I'd like to share with everyone as part of this process- My GN'R-online story started back on a forum called newgnr and I moved over to a forum called GNRevolution after newgnr went away. I was part of the staff at GNRevo from quite some time before I ended up leaving that site in a very bad way which was due in great part to my own faults. The staff and majority of users were always very good to me during my time there. To this day, I remain ashamed of myself for the way I handled things with that situation. That really has nothing to do with MyGNR, I just wanted to say that in public. I continued to read MyGNR, mostly My World in the weeks that passed and I really had no intent on joining leadership of any GN'R forum ever again. However, I kept seeing little things that I thought could improve and kept getting the itch to help out. I reached out to High Voltage with a random PM and asked if he'd be intersted in me joining. We went back and forth a bit and he ended up deciding it was a good idea. No matter what's happened since, I'm glad that he did. I won't bore everyone with stories of what's gone on here since. There's a long history that many of you know. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Always with the best intentions. I've never claimed to be perfect and I hope I've never given anyone the impression that I thought I was. My intention was always just to hopefully build a medium place for fans of all opinions to meet up. I believe I had varying degrees of success with that in my time on the staff here. I am now and will continue to be proud of my work here. So why is this happening? This is happening now because to be honest, my heart hasn't been in the band for a very long time. My heart was with the forum though, so I stayed on the staff much longer than I probably should have. I relayed my thoughts to Downzy earlier today and he's understandably upset but supportive of my decision. Downzy's handling of my decision is another in a long line of great things that add to my time on the staff here. I am extremely grateful for the friends I've made through the GN'R community both online and in real life. So what happens now? I am *NOT* leaving the forum but I am leaving the staff and mostly likely any GN'R discussion. As I said before, my heart just isn't in this band so I would most likely only contribute negative things to the D&N section that I worked so hard to help rid of negativity. It's best for me to hang out in My World & Seen That Movie Too when I stop by. I'll be posting in the usual threads in those sections, so you can look for me there and/or shoot me a PM whenever anyone would like. I want to say THANK YOU to the entire GN'R online community for all the memories. Thank you to the online and real life friends I have and I'll even say thank you to the people who are probably celebrating right now haha. Every person I've interacted with has made me a better person in some way, whether they liked me or not. Being made a better person through this whole experience is something I'll never forget, so as I said many times; I'm grateful for this whole experience. This isn't goodbye, it's just "I'm stepping down and I won't be giving anyone warning points anymore" haha. I truly hope for the best in the future for this forum, the online community and even this band who seems to disappoint us so much, but connects us all in some way. Thanks for everything and see you in the non-GN'R sections! -RussTCB
  7. Watched Mystify the other day. Great doc about Michael Hutchence from INXS.
  8. This tournament has been.......something else. Needless to say, that Pet Sounds episode got quite a reaction. I said all I have to say during the episode: I think they're both insane haha. Pet Sounds isn't even an upbeat album by any stretch of the imagination!!! But I digress haha. As for last Mondays episode, it was fun. Garage Rock is a weak point for me, so it was cool to learn more about it. On top of that, it was awesome to speak to a breaking band from 6000 miles away who's so heavily influenced by sounds that started in the US. We've got a really packed schedule tonight, tomorrow and Saturday but it'll all result in more great episodes coming out tomorrow through next Monday.
  9. Yes, some new GN'R leaks have surfaced. A studio version of Silkworms along with a remix / re-recording of Oh My God. Everyone is allowed to discuss them in this thread but PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR LINKS OR PMs. Anyone who posts a link on the open forum will be banned immediately. Anyone who repeatedly asks for PMs/links will be given warning points.
  10. Oh My God on Vinyl!

    Thanks, I've been working on it for a long time. It's pretty much exactly how I want it now.
  11. I've still never watched that one. I've heard nothing but good things about it, just haven't got around to watching it yet.
  12. I watched Uncut Gems last night on Netflix. Holy shit, what an overrated movie and incredibly overrated performance from Sandler. The movie itself was "here's two hours of this guy making the worst decisions ever" and Sandlers performance was "what if I just yell over everyone else"?
  13. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Did a search and couldn't find a thread dedicated to vinyl LPs in general. Does anyone collect and/or use them? About 70% of the music I listen to is on vinyl these days.
  14. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    I'm hitting up my local store tomorrow and I cannot wait. The owner is hitting me up the moment he gets the 4 Prince releases for this week so I can come grab them. Also, I finally got a record I've wanted for a long time. I was poking around on Discogs and found the second Page / Plant album (Walking Into Clarksdale) for less than I've seen it previously, so I grabbed it. It won't be here til Saturday or so, but I'm really excited to finally have it.
  15. RussTCB Stepping Down

    Wait til you see the reaction when I launch TCBWater (tm) haha I literally laughed out loud haha.
  16. Oh My God on Vinyl!

    The only reason answer to that question is that it's all a matter of opinion. If you went to 100 "vinyl experts" or "music experts" and asked that, you're gonna get 100 different answers haha. I love OMG and it was the one GN'R song I didn't have on vinyl so I was going to buy the End Of Days Soundtrack either way. To me, it does sound better but again it's all incredibly objective.
  17. Thought I'd give this thread a bump because our latest episode is about Garage Rock but we have an interview with a great new band from Israel called The Dodies. Bumblefoot produced their debut album, so that's enough of a GN'R connection for me to justify the bump haha. Here's the link to Spotify and Apple: https://open.spotify.com/episode/1CbIY0yNYWpjIdVxgrVtZ1 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/its-supposed-to-sound-like-this-w-the-dodies/id1497445845?i=1000475675547 This link leads to everywhere else the show is available: https://linktr.ee/Infectiousgroovepodcast
  18. I have a thread about my music podcast in the My World section because I didn't want to spam the main D&N section about it every week seeing as it's not focused on just GN'R. However, Episode 6 is out now and it's titled "A Rose By Any Other Name". We're talking about "When a band isn't a band anymore", so needless to say GNR comes up a lot lol. Just search for "Infectious Groove Podcast" on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, iheartradio, Pocket Casts, CastBox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher or wherever you listen to your podcasts and you'll find us. GN'R is not the main focus of this or any other episode, but we mention them a lot for obvious reasons so I thought I'd post this one episode in D&N. If you're interested, take a listen. If not, move along haha
  19. RussTCB Stepping Down

    Thanks for saying that I'll definitely return to the GN'R section at some point (actually, I'm gonna bump a thread in a min lol) but for now I've just completely burned myself out of GN'R.
  20. Oh My God on Vinyl!

    Oh, right on. One of my best friends lives over your way in Jenison. He's got a great listening area and he's helped me a lot with mine. If you wanna check out my listening area, watch this video My setup is the second one featured.
  21. Episode 19 is out! We had a really good discussion about Garage Rock and included an interview with a great new band from Israel called The Dodies. Bumblefoot produced their debut album Here's the link to Spotify and Apple, then the link below leads to the show everywhere else: https://open.spotify.com/episode/1CbIY0yNYWpjIdVxgrVtZ1 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/its-supposed-to-sound-like-this-w-the-dodies/id1497445845?i=1000475675547 https://linktr.ee/Infectiousgroovepodcast ALSO!

  22. Oh My God on Vinyl!

    Right on. I forget where you're from exactly, not sure if you told me and I forgot lol. I'm over near the Livonia / Novi area.
  23. Just checked out analytics and found out we've been listened to in 39 countries. That's insane. We have a new episode out first thing tomorrow morning. I'll drop the link here when it's up in the morning
  24. Floyd Discussion

    Oh yeah, Polly had had her in hand in a lot of Floyd stuff dating back to 93 or so. Dave has used Floyd to try to promote a lot of her projects over the years and I find it a little off putting. Even more so now. Why would Floyd fans care about what's Dave's wife is doing while they can't get any updates on Roger?
  25. Oh My God on Vinyl!

    I haven't heard that version but I may need to check it out.
