      MYGNRFORUM Theme Template Update - Additional Features   09/09/2017

      Happy to announce that the upgrades have almost been completed and the new custom theme is available for all users. There are still a few bugs to work out which we hope to have solved over the next day or two.   To use the new template, click on Themes at the bottom left side of the page and click on MYGNRFORUM (New): It is now set to default in case you did not previously changed themes. A new feature of this update are the new reactions to posts.  By click on the like button, users have a choice of five different reactions (two of our own design): Remember, if you GNR like something, make it a dolphin like! Please use the Ask Staff Anything thread with any questions or concerns. Thanks to everyone for your patience and cooperation over the last couple of weeks while we got this done.

  1. There is exactly one good rendition of the TIL solo: Robin's version on the album. I have no time for Ashba's awful renditions, nor Slash's uninspired noodling.
  2. Solo: A Star Wars Story

    I'm cautiously mildly optimistic for this one, mostly because I like the idea that this one will be more akin to a spaghetti Western in the Star Wars universe, like Rogue One was more of a war film.
  3. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Went out and bought a bunch of new stuff for a change over the weekend. One of my local shops had a 40% off everything in the store sale. So I picked up four of the new-ish Maiden 180g reissues (two 2LP's and two 3LP's), the deluxe 25th anniversary edition of STP's Core, and the 10x7" box set version of Anthrax's For All Kings. I think I paid about $175 for all of that.
  4. Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Principal photography is done - I'd say it's pretty likely this one stays on track for a May release.
  5. 2017 Death Pool Draft

    That quickly got denied by the Vatican and his secretary, and they released a current picture of him today, he looks a bit older, but fine for 90.
  6. 2017 Death Pool Draft

    Gord Downie has died. The standings seriously need updating, I'll do it tonight after work.
  7. Fuckin' way she goes boys. They have to cancel it, there's absolutely no way to carry it on without Lahey, especially not after so many original cast members left the last few seasons. All I want at this point is like a final special, writing everyone off for good.
  8. Solo: A Star Wars Story

    I thought we had a thread for the Han Solo movie already, but I can't seem to find it. Anyways, the title was officially announced today! http://www.starwars.com/news/official-name-for-the-untitled-han-solo-film-revealed Release date is still slated for May 25, so hopefully we get a trailer before too long. Maybe attached to The Last Jedi?
  9. This is one of the few celebrity deaths I've cried over. John was by far the best thing about Trailer Park Boys, no one could play a drunk like him. I've been sick as a dog yesterday and today, but when I'm feeling better I'll definitely be having a couple drinky poos for the Liquor Smurf RIP, you drunk, glorious bastard
  10. Hey @Georgy Zhukov - I was just telling you to check those out. Handy they're on YouTube now!
  11. Member Picture Thread

    Yeah. It is amazing, but sadly we couldn't drive the whole valley, our car wasn't suited for it. Got less than a mile into the trail and nearly got stuck. Gotta go back someday with a more suitable vehicle and drive the whole thing.
  12. Member Picture Thread

    Some pictures from the Southwest in June: Historic Mission Control at NASA in Houston 'Membering the Alamo in San Antonio Monument Valley
  13. Except the Stones do have options for people who can't shell out the big bucks - the Lucky Dip tickets. Basically, you get a pair of mystery tickets, and you don't know where your seats are until you pick the up the day of the gig. Some seats will be in the very last row of the nosebleeds, some in the front GA (Or front row if there's no GA). The thing is, the tickets are always cheaper than the cheapest tickets at face value. For the arena shows in 2013, they were $85 per ticket (Regular cheap seats were $110), and for the stadium shows in 2015 they were $29 (Cheap seats were about $40). So even if you get terrible seats, you always make out well financially. And there are actually good seats mixed in - for Toronto in 2013 I got a pair of pit tickets, which are $1500 at face value, and for the two shows in 2015 where I did Lucky Dip tickets I got in the highest price point, which was either $350 or $400 depending on the gig. In 2015 I saw four Stones shows for less than $300 (One of the other two didn't have Lucky Dip tickets, and the other one I had a large group of friends going to so we all opted for $100 tickets together). And GN'R needs to do something like that if they want to be able to fill these venues night in and night out. There have already been some stadium shows with upper levels closed - hell even in Philly, looking at some crowd pictures it looks like the upper bowl was only maybe 80-85% full, and that's in a 14,000 capacity arena.
  14. Apparently, yeah. My IMAX theater is doing things a bit fucky - they've got a 2D screening at 7 PM, then 3D at 9:40 and 1:10 AM. And the 6 PM in 2D is $25 per ticket. I got tickets for standard 3D at 7 PM, but then my buddy got us tickets for the 1:10 AM in IMAX. So I guess I'm seeing it twice on opening night Trailer looks great - already seems a lot more original than TFA from the bit we've seen. Did anyone else think the trailer is a bit revealing for a Star Wars trailer though?
  15. Yeah, but they added Wichita Lineman, Black Hole Sun, and I Feel Good. /s
