      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. Game of Thrones Season 8 Death Pool

    This is the first time I've checked into a GoT thread since S5. I haven't watched 6 or 7. I stupidly thought Winds was inevitable in both 2015 and 2016... and 2017... I'm getting close to the point of saying "fuck it," but not quite there yet.
  2. Battlefield 1

    Haven't played in at least half a year. Uninstalled to make room for other games a few months ago. No regrets. I got bored with this one. I'm thinking of reinstalling BF3 or 4 though.
  3. Slash's New Album - Conspirators III

    I'm done with the reunion. If they split and call it quits with GNR, I wouldn't care. In fact, I want Slash back! An album of new music every 2 years + a reasonably priced tour where he changes up the set every night... yeah, I'll take that over Axl huffing through the same GNR set every night at the price of a couple hundred dollars each time.
  4. Snakepit Studio Footage

    Saw this while shuffling around YouTube. Really cool, never saw it before. Apparently the drummer himself uploaded these. Slash looks like Zoro in the second video. It's cool to hear the non-mastered guitar tone, really does sound like the tone on record. Very transparent mixing/mastering.
  5. The Gear Thread

    Yup still have the modded Marshall. It's out of commission at the moment, a fuse blew and I stripped the holder pretty bad when I tried to get it out. So I took a hammer to the assembly in an effort to knock it out of the socket in the chassis - but that also knocked the mains fuse holder out of it's socket. It needs a trip to the tech when I get a chance.
  6. The Gear Thread

    I have a short clip of my newest amp. It's actually the second Ceriatone King Kong I've owned. I regretted selling the first one, and a good deal came up for another one a few weeks ago. They're basically supposed to be Cameron CCV clones (because Mark Cameron doesn't make them anymore and only 50-60 exist in totality). In this clip, it still has the stock Chinese/Sovtek 12AX7s in it. Still gotta put my NOS glass in at some point. But I thought it still sounded pretty good even with those sub-par tubes. A bit of the clean channel, and then the gain channel on the middle-clipping setting. Cab is a Marshall 425A with G12Cs, and guitar is an LP custom.
  7. The Gear Thread

    Mesa's "features:price" ratio has always been great, especially compared to the other big manufacturers. And I believe all of their amps are still USA made. I haven't seen a Mark V under the hood, but DR's look almost like computers.
  8. Mass Effect

    https://www.masseffect.com/news/mass-effect-andromeda-update-from-the-studio A giant middle finger to anyone waiting to find out who the benefactor is, or waiting to see the mom regain consciousness. They seem to hint that maybe they'll be answered in comics and novels. Well BioWare, you wouldn't have to do that if you had properly concluded the game's story IN THE GAME. I'd like to know who the benefactor is, but I don't care to read it. I wanted to see it rendered in 3D, in the ME world. The notion of a mysterious benefactor felt very Mass Effecty (someone running the show, like The Illusive Man), unlike much of Andromeda which felt like a placid mess. I would have probably bought the DLC for it. Well, maybe. I change my mind every time I think about it.
  9. The Gear Thread

    Sounds good, definitely hear the "Mark" tone. 10 watts is still pretty loud for a bedroom! Pics, clips!
  10. Anyone here play any smartphone/tablet games?

    Couldn't get through Chrono Trigger. However, FFVI was amazing. I'm due for a replay. It would be cool if SE redid the entire series in HD/modern graphics like they did with X/X-2, and VII soon.
  11. The Gear Thread

    My Jubilee combo is the tits. I have a DSL40C that's pretty good. I do want to change the speaker though when I get a chance. It's white tolex too, so it sounds better.
  12. Aspiring writers thread

    A good way to test character development is to take your main character at the end of your story, and mentally put them into a conflict situation from the beginning of the story. If they handle it the same way (or if you don't know if they would handle it differently), you haven't done your character development job properly. On the latter query, I agree with J Dog. There's AC/DC and there's Lennon, both serve their purposes.
  13. New Slash's signature guitars

    Signature guitars = $. No other reason for all of these. I'm a big Slash fan, but it's enough already with the signatures. The guy has like 2-3 notable Gibsons, but somehow has 5-6+ signature models with them.
  14. Slither was listed as an alternate. Not sure if they every sound-checked it. Regardless, it dropped off the alternate list some time ago. My guess is Axl didn't like singing it/how he sounded on it.
  15. Gibson USA has been pretty spotty since around 2008. But you can find good ones here and there from the last ~10 years. The Custom/Historic Shop is still pretty consistent IMO. There's some weirdness going on over there though, seems like reissue production has halted, and they now only do special orders for stores/individuals. The main two heads of the Custom/Historic Shop were let go as part of this downsizing; both of whom had been there for 20+ years.
