      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.

    Oh yeah, that too! Good for reducing inflammation and can be used for the cold fighting, like tea tree, in a pinch. Amazing stuff.
  3. Didn't see this posted yet. Simmons had a bizarre outburst while at a Fox News studio. He's banned now. With his outsized personality, outspoken opinion and conservative-leaning political views, Kiss co-founder Gene Simmons has long been a natural fit for guest appearances on the Fox News network. But being unfiltered can cut both ways, and now Simmons' behavior has apparently earned him a lifetime ban at the network. UPDATE: Simmons has issued the following statement to Ultimate Classic Rock: "I have appeared frequently over the years on various Fox News and Fox Business programs and have a tremendous amount of respect for the talented women and men who work there. While I believe that what is being reported is highly exaggerated and misleading, I am sincerely sorry that I unintentionally offended members of the Fox team during my visit." The Daily Beast reports that the trouble started on Nov. 15, when Simmons stopped by to tape interviews and appearances promoting his new financial self-help book, On Power. Clearly in a high-energy mood, Simmons even made his way over to the map to help meteorologist Janice Dean present her weather report. During his interview with Mornings With Maria host Maria Bartiromo, Simmons was asked to weigh in on the growing list of celebrities, entertainment industry executives and politicians embroiled in a variety of sexual misconduct scandals — and he seemed to suggest that although this type of behavior has long been tacitly accepted, if not outright encouraged in some quarters, those days are done. "I'm a powerful and attractive man and what I'm about to say is deadly serious," Simmons said. "Men are jackasses. And from the time we're young, we have testosterone. I'm not validating it or defending it. Guys need to be trained from their very, very young ages from their mothers and their loved ones that half the world's population are female, and they need to be treated with respect." All of Simmons' on-camera interactions went well, in other words — but according to the Beast's sources, he didn't fare as well once the cameras stopped rolling. He's accused of bursting into a staff meeting, unbuttoning his shirt and yelling "Hey chicks, sue me," and whacking a pair of employees on the head with his book as some sort of intelligence test. His actions were reported to network execs, who reportedly, and quickly, barred Simmons from the building and imposed a lifetime ban on future appearances. It's all fairly bizarre, even in the context of Simmons' brazen public persona, and while neither he nor his reps has commented on the story, a Fox News spokesperson has confirmed the Daily Beast’s account to Ultimate Classic Rock. (We also reached out to Simmons' publicist for a comment, but have not heard back.) Whatever Simmons ends up having to say about it, it looks like he'll have to find some new stops on his next promotional tour — and Fox pundits will need to dial up a different right-wing rocker for talking head segments from here on out. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/gene-simmons-fox-news-ban/ "whacking a pair of employees on the head with his book as some sort of intelligence test." Is my favourite part! Hoping of course it wasnt hard and that they are all okay. What a buffoon. Never liked that guy.
  4. RIP Malcolm Young

    RIP Malcolm. He made it look easy to master the craft.

    Can be pro active in cold and flu season by carrying an anti viral sniffer. Make one by taking half a cotton ball (ideally organic) and wetting it with a bit of tea tree essential oil. Place it in a little medicine vile (glass, brown or blue to prevent light) with a tight fitting lid. You'll want vile small enough that its easy to sniff, 50ml is what I use. Tea tree essential oil is antibacterial and anti viral. So when some jerk coughs in your face you can take it out of pocket and sniff - a deep sniff, feeling it get all the way to the throat. Add drops to it as needed. This works wonders for me. Similarly for migraines caused by stress; same thing but with lavender essential oil. Lavender is actually safe to put a bit directly on skin - rubbed into the temples or where it hurts. Can also put a dab right under the nose. I know someone who cut their migraines down by 2/3's this way. Note: there are many types of Lavender essential oil. Theres should be sample bottles at store. Smell them all to see which one appeals to you most.

    And you can continue to think poorly of bad science and your list because this is Herbalism, which isnt on your list Also, red raspberry leaves can help with unpleasant menstrual issues, taken as a tea. Gotta be red though, like how they get at end of season. Available in the market too.

  9. For my 'all time' choice its UYI2. Love UYI1 also. Listen to them both the same amount.
  10. Terminator Judgement Day is coming

    Scary sht indeed. "only the bad guys" Even a few years ago I researched a military contractor who advertised right on their web site that they were developing a dust that could audio and video record targets while it flew. They already had produced, advertised and sold a small, matte black UAV orb that could listen through walls and video in real images, infra red and more. It was slightly larger then a billiard ball. At night is was invisible, in the day it acted as a chameleon and blend into surroundings and it made no sound. I dumpster dove outside their R&D and production location. Sitting in an unlocked dumpster was a bunch of tech that I feared to take into my possession - it was serious shit. If thats whats in the dumpster years back, I cant imagine where the secret tech is at today.
  11. other bands' appetite

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon Jeff Beck - Blow by Blow Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Oz Tom Petty - Wildflowers (this ones awkward because its not a Heart Breakers album, but the Heart Breakers play as the core session band for the entire album. Campbell co-preduced album and co-wrote 2 tracks. It was in fact the introduction of Steve Ferrone on drums) NIN - The Downward Spiral Grateful Dead - Shakedown Street (barely edging out Terrapin Station, or possibly even Live/Dead imo)
