    Maybe not to you but to a lot of people it was.

    Yeah, it was funny.

    Back in the day I didn't meet a single soul who didn't love it. Now it seems like everyone's too cool for it, even on a GNR forum.

    And yes, the fact that it's popular again now proves that it aged well.

    Exponential growth is common in early stages of epidemics, but usually quickly taper off. Like this virus seems to have done. Of course, whenever it comes to new areas the local growth can be exponential again for a short time.

    Bacteria can also grow exponentially, at least for a short time until some nutrient becomes limiting (I suppose that can be said of everything). And since bacteria grow by division (1 become 2, 2 becomes 4, and so on), a bacterium like E. coli with an ideal division time of only 22 minutes, can theoretically be the origin of a bacterial colony weighing more than the Earth in less than 48 hours (!). We are now working with a bacterium that has the shortest observed growth time, it can double it's cell mass and divide into two new copies of itself in less than 7 minutes. After 1 hour it would have given rise to 255 new daughter cells. In 2 hours there would be 131,072 of them. After 3 hours, it would be more than 67 million, and after 4 hours more than 274 billion. And so on. Just remarkably efficient at taking up nutrients and converting to biomass. Fortunately, nutrients will always be limiting, otherwise we'd be fucked.

    I hope you're growing good bacteria then :nervous:


  3. Sanders and Biden are both almost 80. That's just ridiculous. I don't get how either of them could get the nomination. They've had their time. Move over and let someone 30 or 40 years younger do it.

    It's sad that the US president seems to have to be someone that old, as Trump is in his 70s too.

    If that's true, and I don't remember him saying that, it's total nonsense. I don't remember reading a single complaint about May's guitar parts and I was around from the second it leaked.

    If i remember correctly, it was May himself who said,  that axl didn't like his parts, or anything similar like that...

    In the Axl chats, Axl said Brian May wasn't happy with how his parts turned out. He didn't recognize himself or sth like that. If that is what you are refering to, it's in  one of the Axl chats.

    today's newspaper, on the frontpage, refers to the shooter as "right terrorist", not "extreme right terrorist".

    https://www.hln.be/de-krant

    You shouldn't read that crap paper :P If it were mine, I'd send them an e-mail correcting them, because that's obviously not right.

    I just checked my paper. They use the words extreme right sympathies, xenophobe and racist, which all seem to be correct.

    Apparently he also complains about not having found love in his manifesto. Sad little man projecting his frustrations on people with a different background.

    dutch article, so most of you won't be much with this.

    the shooter also shot his mom. Is shooting your mom also a right wing motive?

    everyone is always talking about how we should be tolerant and forgiving, but the media keep stigmatising people and poking the fire. It is yet another example of toxic media culture. This kind of shit influences people into their daily lives. Imagine telling your colleague at work you have right wing ideologies, on a day like this. what kind of society is this becoming?

    As far as I read, he's been called extreme right wing. There's a clear distinction with right wing, I think. If I hear extreme right wing, I think racism. I don't think racism when I think of right wingers.

    Notice it says early entry to GA, instead of golden circle, like other shows

    No Gold circle then?

    I think Poland 2018 was the first show ever Tako didn't get front row, because they sold loads of early entry tickets. In most countries ee means front row, but it doesn't in Poland. I remember it was a lot cheaper compared to other shows, but you didn't get a VIP bag or weren't guaranteed a spot in the front. 

    If I recall correctly, there was either no GC or the GC was bigger than the GA.

    Being 'new' to the GnR saga I was'nt aware of this...what a load of wankers, I wonder how the situation impacted on axl, but then it is what he wanted when he had Duff and Slash sigh over the band to him.  Little did he know.  So was GnR almost defunct by 2014?

    I don't think it impacted Axl at all. From what I gather, BBF rarely saw or talked to Axl. If I recall correctly, BBF was forced to tour even though he had been in a serious car crash and was in terrible pain. Axl supposedly didn't even know he'd been in an accident. There was a video of Axl leaning onto him at a show and BBF grimacing painfully.

    well yeah, poor Axl has plenty of these online I am afraid and there is nothing he can do about it

     

    or maybe he can attempt to remove them from the internet:ph34r:

    It's not as if he hasn't tried, of course.

    Quote

    Axl Rose wants unflattering photos of him from a 2010 G'N'R show removed from the Internet forever, particularly if they've had words added mocking his appearance.

    Anti-piracy company Web Sherrif has told Google to remove the images from its web search results and Blogger platform, saying Rose owns the original photo, reports Torrentfreak.

    Google has yet to comply with the order.

    The original photo, and others like it, were taken at a 2010 concert by Winnipeg Free Press photographer Boris Minkevich. He told Torrentfreak he had no idea Rose was trying to get them off the web.

    According to Web Sherriff, photographers attending Guns N' Roses concerts sign away the rights of any pictures they take to the band. Mr Minkevich can't recall signing any waiver before the 2010 gig, but says it is fairly common.

    Question:

    Has anyone, since the NITL tour started, seen them front of stage at the Pit? I just bought tickets to the Atlanta, Bobby Dodd Stadium, show in August. I REALLY loved the Charlotte show last year from the floor. I have bad hearing problems and I was wondering if I should bring protection or is it not too bad up front?

    Only been in Europe, and I always had earplugs. If I were you, I'd bring protection. Better safe than sorry ☺️

    Oh for fuckssake! :lol:  Anybody got any good news? :lol:  

    Who wants to go on a trip in England this time of year? 😄 

    Maybe go to York and do some nice indoors stuff like diesel said.

    Seriously though, when going away in this season, always make sure there are indoor options. Nothing is nice when it's pouring, grey and windy.

    it doesn't matter if it's the tabloids. you claimed "If artists look unhealthy/doped up/botoxed/whatever, you read it in the reviews. The media are obsessed with looks." Now you're effectively changing the goalpost by claiming you haven't paid attention to those.

    that the media hasn't noticed Axl's unhealthy appearance is just flat out incorrect. 

    So the tabloids have noticed it, many fans on here have noticed it, and other fans like you and @EvanG claim you see nothing out of the ordinary. Well, many people do.

     

    Show me where the tabloids noticed it then.

    And answer me this then: do you know any people with serious health issues that give 3 hours+ shows, multiple times a week, for a couple of months, at any age?


  14. 18 minutes ago, action said:

    you think that the media don't mention his unhealthy appearance? wow, there are litterally countless of articles floating around there pointing out exactly that. Maybe not in reviews, because like I said: they review the show.

     

    I seriously haven't seen those. Or are you talking about tabloids that take an unflattering pic of any celebrity and then put 'OMG!!! Look at X! Friends worry about X and this picture proves why!!' Or 'OMG, look at how X has changed in 30 years!!!' Because I don't pay attention to those.

    why should reviews care about his health? they review the show and not his health.

    it's only natural that such focus should be confined to this forum: as fans, we care about more than just the show. we care about axl's wellbeing too. 

    Of course reviews care. If artists look unhealthy/doped up/botoxed/whatever, you read it in the reviews. The media are obsessed with looks.

    If anything, they mention he runs around for 3 hours. I don't know many unhealthy people who do that. In fact, I know none.

    you can be medicated and acting happy at the same time, one does not exclude the other.

    everyone can see Axl really doesn't look healthy these days. It doesn't seem like he can go on like this much longer. He needs to get his act together before something truly bad happens to him.

    So when did he have his act together according to you then? Whatever that might mean. He's doing all the shows like clockwork, no rants, no outbursts, neither on or off the stage. I'm not sure what you're expecting. To me that sounds like having your act together.

    People here like speculating about his health, but I have only seen this 'concern' about his health on the forum. I never read anything about him looking unhealthy in reviews.

  17. @Liva Except Beta denied taking down videos and agreed videos are a promotion for the band. And GNR social media asked fans to post videos of their show experience.

    Those are facts.

    I basically scroll through all the setlist complaints nowadays. It's all very predictable. Setlist complaints are more boring than the setlist.

    However, they seem to be able to add songs like Wichita, I feel good, BHS etc. I've seen eight shows and I think there's only one where I didn't get a song I hadn't heard before. It's not that choreographed. I don't think anyone realistically would expect or even want a complete overhaul. And they can and do add stuff to the set.

    I just crave new music.

    When that time comes, the usual suspects will be complaining. But many will be thrilled too. In fact, besides the complaining, when something amazing happens, most people will be enthusiastic (at least for a few hours😜).

    As for Axl having meltdowns, at the Berlin show many things went wrong, Axl was obviously very frustrated, but he didn't storm off. He's less volatile these days and handles mishaps a lot better. Let's hope the storming off days are behind us.

    It's more like a figure of speech, I don't want actual riots or late starts, but if Axl enjoys life and music more by going on a bit later and fans get a better performance out of that then that's better than the current state. I don't know why he's medicated, but I'd say he most likely is and it's no funny stuff.

    Why? Does Axl look like he's enjoying life less than at any other period we've seen him? I don't think so. 

    Also, most fans are happy with the performance.

    I'm not speculating on medication of medical condition, but Axl to me seems much happier and at ease since 2016 than ever maybe.


  19. It's total BS that casual fans would be disappointed if they didn't play songs like CD, Better, Yesterdays, Coma, TIL, Sorry and so many others they've been playing for years.

    They have to play Jungle, scom, nr, pc, don't cry, ycbm, Patience, kohd and maybe lald. (Don't think I forgot any.) That's 9. They can rotate all the rest with new songs or other deepcuts.

    I'm not one of those asking a complete overhaul, but to pretend they have to play all these songs (3 hours+ set!!), is just silly.  It's not unreasonable to expect some changes now and again.

    It's funny when I'm talking to people from large countries... to you two hours from the sea is probably close by, but to me it's far away. I haven't been to the beach in years. When I was in Canada, the lady we stayed with, had to drive thirty minutes to get to the nearest supermarket... I can't even imagine that!

    I don't mind, I don't watch football anyway. 

    I think we have a storm maybe once or twice a year, but it doesn't leave much damage behind. Almost everything is mild here. But yeah, this will happen more often due to climate change.

    Actually, I think a lot of people, especially the ones near the coast, will go outside to ''enjoy'' the storm. This always happens.

    You also have a cycling contest of 8k against the wind. Funny.

    Sly Stallone sells em on his website, a whole array of Rocky and Rambo merchandise.  Rocky robes and all sorts, that T shirt is part of the collection if I'm not mistaken.

     

    I saw his wife gave him some Sly Stallone artwork for his birthday too.


  22. I wasn't following Duff really, before he got back into GNR. So I love him more now. Love him on stage, loved him when I met him and I love his album and loved his solo show.

    Slash is as much of a badass as he's always been. They both make me happy on stage.

    Their business decisions are none of my business. I can't pretend to know better and it doesn't affect my life as it obviously does theirs. I'll live my life and let them decide on theirs.
