  1. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    Who could've guessed all these years later he'd be directing a gem like Chernobyl?
  2. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Mindboggling. How do Trump supporters defend that one? Fake news?
  3. But he's been saying this for 30 years. Why do you keep ignoring that? Can't they speak out anymore, because it's the woke thing to do now? People's mentality needs to change. And by standing up for what you believe in, you tell all those people what you believe is right. Is it enough to change the world? Of course not. But I can bet you it's better than saying 'the looting starts, the shooting starts' or 'release the hounds'. It's people standing up and trying to unite instead of polarize. If you don't see the merits of that, that's on you. Just sit on your ass and say it will never be enough and it's too little, too late, so best not to do anything at all. In a world where influencers are getting more and more important, I would say it is very crucial they take a stand and show what they believe in. (Not talking about GNR, because people will be mocking and blabla irrelevant and stuff.) If Trump can poison minds with his gibberish, then it's other people's duty to say: No, this isn't right, this is not who we are.
  4. Oh, did you forget in 1992 there was a little song called Cop Killer, after the riots in LA? Bodycount was asked to support GNR back then. That's 28 years ago. Don't make it as if Axl Rose just got woke and jumped on the bandwagon. We aren't all too young to still remember. After the promoter in LA asked to replace Bodycount by another act for the LA shows, this is what Axl had to say:
  5. How is he squeezing money out of it? Do you think people will go out and buy a 12 year old album now? Or a 33 year old album? Why is it suddenly wrong to make a stand against racism and police brutality? Artists have always spoken out against things they felt were wrong in society, no?
  6. Axl being called racist when Slash was in the band and while he's been living with a Brazilian family for decades. People calling him a racist and a hypocrite have more than probably uttered racist slurs towards Beta and the Lebeis clan. If you really believe Axl was/is racist, don't you think that that would have come out during the bitter years? Ridiculous.
  7. Police culture in different countries

    I respect the police, but they're certainly not idolized here. I often get the feeling at least some of them go for the quick fine of the law abiding citizen who parked in the wrong spot while they'll let the thugs go because they're scared of them There are bad cops here too of course, and now and then we get a scandal of racist police, or corrupt police, (bad apples everywhere, I suppose) but nothing compared to the US police. I think some are armed, but not all. I've never seen police draw their weapon, thank god. A friend told me of a Canadian friend she had who was all surprised that we don't hang around to watch an arrest happen, to check on the police, so to speak. I sincerely hope that will never be necessary here. How cops can think it's okay to sit on someone's neck for minutes is beyond me. There is obviously something very very wrong with US police and the US in general when black people must teach their children not to stand out when just walking on the streets.
  8. I would love it on Kindle too! I hope you can make that happen one day. Thank you for all the great work, @SoulMonster and @Blackstar
  9. NITL live videos on youtube

    Didn't Fernando talk on the Discord? They are far, far worse.
  10. NITL live videos on youtube

    It's either that or you have very low standards
  11. NITL live videos on youtube

    Yeah, just enjoy it for what it is. If you can't, that's fine too. I can't imagine all the energy people waste on getting disappointed over and over again. Well, some people thrive on that of course. It's funny how people who enjoyed this, are being labeled as easy to please, low standards and pretending as if everything is okay, while the critics of course only have valid criticism We're all on a GNR forum, no need to be arrogant about other posters' taste.
  12. NITL live videos on youtube

    Nah, there's a few posters that have posted nothing but negativity in this thread multiple times. I think overall people were happy with it. Past few days people seemed to be expecting we'd get only one song a week, or even just a clip of a song. Or some publicity for merch in between songs. We got three complete songs. There will always be people who find nothing good whatsoever in anything (too bad for them) and they feel the need to say that 10 times, but let's not focus on that. And let's hope Fernando and the band don't focus on that either
  13. NITL live videos on youtube

    You can change that yourself. I know nothing whatsoever about it, but I read that on here and you can change the settings on YT to 1080 HD.
  14. NITL live videos on youtube

    Yes, we kind of knew it would be those three songs from the length and the trailer. I enjoyed it a lot. I'm really looking forward to watching more of these and I would really love for them to have some kind of DVD release of the NITL tour. So many great memories But, yes, only a bit of Axl. It was like the Slash show. Not that I find that very upsetting. But looking forward to seeing more of Axl next time.
  15. NITL live videos on youtube

    I agree. It took some getting used to, but he doesn't have a great head of hair anymore, so I think it's better like this too.
  16. NITL live videos on youtube

    Yay. I am happy about that! Let's hope we get a few songs every week then.
  17. NITL live videos on youtube

    It says Salt Lake City 2019. So must be a complete show? EDIT: Nope: Not In This Lifetime Selects: #GnFnR brings moments from the tour to YouTube. Guns N' Roses - Not In This Lifetime Tour: Salt Lake City, Utah - October 29, 2019.
  18. COVID-19 Outbreak

    The past 7 days Sweden had the highest death count, I read. So not in total, but past 7 days. Or that's how I understood it anyway.
  19. COVID-19 Outbreak

    I ouldn't call Trump a selfmade man, or Johnson. Not sure about the others. But Trump inherited his company and Johnson was a private school pupil and Eton college boy. They may have worked hard, but they aren't selfmade men.
  20. Yeah, the way he worded it, saying 'deep down I believe it's coming' or something like that, it does sound like something I could say, more wishful thinking than anything. I'm sure he knows after all these years that nothing is sure with GNR unless you're actually seeing it with your own eyes/hearing it/holding it in your hands. The smallest thing seems enough to throw a spanner in the works and block Axl.
  21. Oh well, let me be the voice of dissent then. I liked him taking the time for this, even if we all know by now that Axl is calling the shots, not him. So we won't magically get answers to the new music questions. If he would've done this on Nightrain, it wouldn't have been half as good imo. It would just be people saying how great the shows all are and how they love Axl and their new T-shirt or when they will ship the children's book to Europe. At least now the questions were asked that have always been asked by the forum people, even if he couldn't give a satisfactory answer. I'm not sure if people burned any bridges by recording it. In the end, nothing really has been said that would concern anyone outside the forum world, I think? Also, I think he just said he liked reddit because there's all sorts of people there. And this talk seems like him not wanting to type it all out and just have an informal chat with people. Not sure where he could have done that without making a huge fuss about it. He knows that there are no mods there, so anything can be thrown at him. While as downzy said, it would create extra work on the forum here and it would just be more complex. At least now we know that we shouldn't expect the live footage within two weeks and it will only be separate songs. That's a bit of a disappointment. I would love a full show.
  22. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Okay. Seems that for now we're not missing out on anything yet then
  23. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Doesn't Norway use an app too? How is that working? Belgium decided not to go for an app because they didn't find any efficient enough and because too few people would use it, making it useless. So we have contact tracers calling all infected people and they ask about contacts the past two weeks. We have to hope people still now (we're still mostly home or at work of course) and are honest about it. Plus I read that one week in, only 1 in 2 infected people have been contacted. That obviously needs to improve. We are testing a lot now though, so we should get most people who get symptoms anyway.
  24. First 3 cds you ever bought?

    I only remember my first two. For the longest time I only had those two. Lenny Kravitz - Mama Said And a compilation cd, a best of the Kinks.
  25. COVID-19 Outbreak

    No idea if you meant me as well, but I resent that. This isn't an international competition, I wish there were no deaths at all. It's about pointing out the obvious flaws that a comparison of deaths/million has, without looking at wauys of counting the deaths, where the curve is heading, so at what point in the epidemic countries are, or how densely populated said country is. All these factors count.
