  1. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    I was in Osaka market and they played girl cover of Sweet Child. At first it was weird to me, like... average Japan weird, but it was a good cover. They sang it like ...his eyes remind me of a warm safe place... I can`t find it anymore, Have you heard about it?
  2. There is tons of hope in story of Axl and Slash. After we explained deep misunderstanding which developed between us (three years of outbursts, talking shit, radio silence, all in social pressure to be together and what not - and we share many friends who would like to see us together again when it was not possible & so), me and my bestie share that special, deep kind of friendship like no other in my life. It`s not a thing you can explain and the thing is that the bond is stronger than ever after all. I don`t think it would be a good idea to fake friendship over residue of bitterness and under social pressure rather than let things evolve naturally. I believe in special people in life we get. People in pain do many nonsense things. It`s up to everyone and mutual: if there`s a will to get across.

    Knockin` on Heavens`s Door is amazing, my fav. Its power lies in sheer simplicity, four chords, melody line simple to follow, you can really go emotional while playing it and still sound good. All hail Bob Dylan and his unmatched songwritting virtuosity.

    Delicate difference between these English gentlemen and Czechs is that Czech don`t wear crazy socks to sandals, just casual white or rather black or grey. *the more you know
  5. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Yes, at least they`re not sandals (yet some other pictures are suspicious), because I could easily mess him up with Czech tourist anywhere in the world.

    I`d guess that part of guitar neck where it goes thicker and attaches to the body of the instrument - it reflects blue light different way. Guitar is shiny black with lots of reflections. Probably there are blue lights also from camera direction which make reflection on the near side of the instrument. (that`s why you see "rail" like it was higher than he rest) I`s funny how some ladies wish it to be privates. It`s not vision impairment, it`s central interpretation processing fail. IQ below 120 is average.

    looks like selfie with cat...
  9. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    I`m a bit doubtful about how can Axl be a dad of a cat, yet I can see that there is certain resemblance in "I`m having a photo with my fan" face.

    Like... it`s certain art of getting on with people to know which buttons not to push. He hit sensitive spot. Happens (you never know where they are hidden). If you need much more effort than most people to archive certain commonplace thing and you success and still someone puts you down, gosh, it hurts. I don`t get your concept of forever mocking, it never helped anything.

    Get what you can get and don`t expect anyone to fulfill your expectations, otherwise you are building castles in the air of few sentences by band managers. Que sera sera. I`m a fan of one of the most unpredictable bands in the world - and I like it. Sincerely, vixen.

    This educational thing is quiet older thing here in the thread; I mentioned it as time-consuming activity focused on a very little piece of knowledge. I`ve never said Axl wasn`t violent or dangerous. Constant message about Axl is that he`s not a guy who will apologize with words, he has his own ways - so I don`t think he will ever start. His current behavior is screaming and bright example how much you can overcome, I prefer acts over words. If he openly started any campaign dedicated to female victim of domestic violence, he would be blamed for hypocrisy; basically there`s not any active move he can do, he stays passive. People are vulnerable different ways and physical abuse is just one of the ways, the most visible one. I was bullied by women, there was never a single episode of physical violence, but it was rough and vicious. Exception is a thing which makes you rethink whole theory. Divorces cannot be more frequent than marriages, c`mon, connect some neurons... If a woman has no respect for her husband, it`s still dirt easy for her to get custody with very limited contact with father. All this stuff is stored in kitchen. Guns not much here (strict gun laws, no tradition...), but lots of lethal stuff is. Women rather physically abuse children or elderly people. So still I stand more for size theory than sex. To say, I work in a field very similar my grandma worked in and nothing much changed. Women who opt to go further in their career usually slip to men working habits, including sacrificing time spent with family; many of them are immoderate tough. Most women prefer rising family over career until today. I`m all for 1st wave of feminism and citizen rights for all people equally, also 60s revolution on reproductive rights had some good points, but this is crazy and over the top; if it was focused on overall people, OK, each and every one of us have own struggles, but pointing out women, making positive discrimination instead of going for actual skills or forcing me somewhere I don`t want to be, no please. I`m not as same as men, I am woman, I have my own ways and I can do stuff men can`t - and believe me or not, it works. Smart women have always make their way, they just don`t kick out the door and scream and cry. ___________________________________________ End of derailing. Howgh. Good night.

    Men are emotionally abused when they are financially independent and have to pay to have the relationship carrying on and not to loose kids, they tolerate tons of shit from they wives because they love their kids. They stay in circle of emotional abuse just because in case of divorce they wouldn`t see their kids anymore. And, same as some women, they stick with abusive partner, don`t ask me why, but they do. Man has the power until woman is either trained fighter or has any instrument. Kitchen tools are favored. Man has to defense in a way he didn`t hurt the woman if he doesn`t want to be charged with domestic violence. In a moment small child encounters physical force and sex as a tool of control, there`s a problem and it would be hard to overcome this trait as adult. If the mother favors abusive partner and doesn`t stand by her child, it`s also a very strong message. Axl`s mother let her children being abused and so did all the family and community. I know people around me from twisted upbringing, not exclusively violent, and they have constant relationship problems just because they didn`t get the message of unconditional love and protection. Still, if Axl even tried to charge Stephanie with abuse, this had to be serious (I also think that from descriptions of their relationship from other people from tight circle of GNR) I was born and I live in Europe and I really don`t think something like patriarchy or what not stands between me and my dreams.

    Suicides are higher in men, no major difference between countries. Women have higher rate of attempts and demonstrative suicides. There are different ways how to abuse someone and direct, open aggression is just one way. Men abuse goes unrecognized much due to its non-physical nature. Already abused men are additionally mistreated by society as pussies who cannot hold their shit together. It`s "honest" to be beaten up in streets, less glorious to be smashed by kitchen tools home (still speaking about physical abuse, not wide variety of emotional abuse). Highly violent environment is violent for both sexes and one of on-going problem is that in certain communities is overall tolerated violence (even domestic), or treated as normal, like, people are forced by relatives to stay in abusive relationship and nothing is done to change the situation. As far as I know it`s more stronger-weaker thing than actual sex. Women and children are mostly smaller and weaker (but they can use tools, I`ve seen man beaten up by wife with broom). You are tiny, you hold less power, you get shit. In streets, home, in school... I dig my memory deep now, but, wasn`t it Axl who came with abuse charge? Like, it`s almost 2020 and I have no impression men would be encouraged to come out with being abused in relationship, raped (but it`s changing). Axl reflected on it and did much on it; it`s difficult, even after you rationally grasped the problem, to be able to cut the vicious circle you get early in you life when emotion strike and requires much ore than few therapies. Seems he did so at the end, he has no issues in decades. He`s in peace with people involved. That`s why I think it has no sense to bring it up again and again; life punished him own ways enough.

    Yeah, and Axl danced away unaffected from the process and lived happily ever after... People have souls you cannot fill up with money. Men have souls, too, and they can be wounded to extent they commit suicide (rate of suicides is much higher in men and abusive relationship may be a reason). Abuse is not just about being bruised. Men are more frequent victims of overall violence (try WHO statistics), it`s just overlooked or treated as not as serious as violence towards women or children. Even more intensely overlooked if the abuser is woman. As far as I know, in case of reparation, both sides must agree. Then the process is closed and cannot be opened again. This is one of Jungle threads, so you can come with more than strictly GNR - and Ratam didn`t loose the continuity.
