  1. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Oh FFS. I'm going into hibernation, someone wake me up when it's safe to go outside again
  2. Member Picture Thread

    I've been binge watching classic WWE this last week. Started with ep 1 of Raw from 1993 and just working through them, or at least I was for a few days and then my missus took over and skipped ahead to the 2000 era, booooo Instead of the storytelling being told in the ring I'm now having to watch the 80 year old Mae Young give birth to a hand Edit: Added some pics from Google Photos.
  3. Travelling thread

    Anyone else been making travel plans for when Covid is finally over? My holiday plans went up in smoke earlier this year but Im hoping to get to USA next year, so get your shit together America I hate flying, and I can't drive, so I've been looking at travelling USA by train. Its a lot cheaper than I thought it would be. $120 for a train from Florida to New York. $200 for a train from New York to LA. Not sure exactly where I wanna go yet, but I could see so much more of the country going by train.
  4. General Chat / Random Musings

    Getting sick of friends/family sympathising that me & Krystal (my gf) haven't had kids or got married. We've chosen to do neither, but in spite of saying this for 15 years we still get told "Oh you'll grow up one day and settle down" (or some BS variation). Really boils my piss "Oh but you don't know real love until you have a child of your own" Bite me. I'm rolling a fat one and booking flights to wherever the fuck I want, enjoy wiping the shit off your kids ass for the next 18 years
  5. Gardening

    Have made a ton of progress on my garden lately. Its starting to look more like a garden and less like a wild jungle Have put in about 30 meters of stone border around my lawn, a few hundred liters of landscaping bark, built the rockery (which needs plants still), and also put in my pond complete with a little waterfall. Have also planted more trees, we've about 40 planted now. My girlfriend bought those cheap plastic orange lights to go around the pond, but they won't be there much longer. Have a feeling they might accidentally fall in the pond and break one day soon
  6. Didn't realise kids got paid when parents divorced. Gonna have to phone my divorced parents about this tomorrow lol
  7. Wacky World of The Ominous Ninja Izzy Stradlin and NO! Gang

    Doesnt look like theres anything new unfortunately, but it might be fun to watch if it has some multi-cam videos for songs. Hope everyone is staying safe 😷
  8. Anyone who hasn't yet listened to Billie Eilish's "When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go" is missing out in my opinion, it's a pretty unique sound and my most listened to album this year
  9. Gardening

    Sorry Ive not been around much lately, I've been too busy in the garden The photo isn't great quality unfortunately, you can't even see my lovely trees (there is one right next to the shovel in the bottom left and I can't even see that one in the pic lol). You can see the state of my lawn, it's just weeds and lumpy grass everywhere I've decided that all around the edge of the garden I'm going to have low maintenance gardening, so I've just been digging up the topsoil, putting down fabric, covering it with bark, and then planting the odd bush, plant or tree. I'm really pleased with how its looking so far, especially the stone edging. The rest of the lawn is staying wild. I've already got some young trees growing and will just plant plenty of flowers/bulbs in the lawn at the backend of the year
  10. Podcasts

    My favourite podcast is This American Life, have listened to it for years and I enjoy their storytelling format more than most other podcasts. My favourite episode is Who You Gonna Call. I've gone back and listened to it a few times
  11. Just finished listening, nice job guys Your (Brando's) content always comes across as more conversational than the usual Q&A interview format, its great.
  12. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Zero cases on our island off the coast of Scotland but the panic is still very real. Shops running low on essentials like toilet paper but I've not had issues getting food fortunately. The community spirit where I live has been really uplifting, we have Facebook groups setup to make sure that everyone isolating has everything they need, and 10% of our islands population is now registered as a volunteer, including me Over 1000 volunteers within the last fortnight, and our hospital staff are being given free accommodation in B&B's close to the hospital, and all the pubs/hotels etc have given away all their food to charities when they've closed. The community response to tourists has been less enthusiastic mind. We've basically shut down the islands and told anyone who doesn't live here to fuck off because theyre not welcome anymore If you try coming to Orkney you'll be turned away at the harbour unless you can provide documentation that proves you live here. Some local videos to lift your spirits...
  13. COVID-19 Outbreak

    The panic buying is crazy. I manage the website for a trade supplies company in Australia and our online sales have blown up over the last few days. They've increased tenfold at least. Folk are buying gallons of isopropyl alcohol, face masks and toilet paper like it's going out of fashion.
  14. Universal and Disney world in Florida closed too now. That's my Wrestlemania holiday buggered
  15. I didn't intend to imply that Im defending Axls position, just trying to make sense of it all really. I just think that if my business made $500,000,000 over the last few years I probably wouldn't give a shit about a releasing an album either lol, especially if I've already smashed it with an album like AFD which became a global success. Axl can live out the rest of his life in extreme comfort without the extra hassle of releasing an album if he can't be arsed. He can still write and record music on a daily basis to satisfy his creative needs, but he doesn't need to deal with any potential bullshit that might come from the record label, press or fans Maybe Axl has enough money to withstand any pressure from the record label? He might expect $10 million minimum to promote a new album whilst the label are only willing to offer $1 million because rock music is basically dead in the music charts. So neither the band or the label will move from their current negotiating position, and they've both got the funds to drag this out for years until one of them is eventually forced into a position of needing to get an album out (or they can find some sucker with too much cash to burn, eg. Best Buy)? Artists who play the clubs and rely on crowdfunding aren't in the same position as Axl. They don't have any option and have to resort to e-begging or playing wherever they can in order to get their name out there. Axl doesn't have those issues
  16. Thanks for posting, hadnt read this one before. Pretty funny that he's talking about escaping to Europe because USA is at boiling point and too violent then he says: ludurigan is correct though, the LA riots occured a few years later so Izzy wasn't wrong really.
  17. I think they're just gonna be a touring band from here on out unfortunately Can't say I blame them when you compare the money they can make from touring against the money they can make from releasing an album. I think releasing a new album would be a pretty big risk and might tarnish their legacy, which could harm future sales for live events. They don't need to release an album to sell tickets, there's plenty of other ways to do that which won't harm their legacy (eg. Bring back Izzy/Adler/Sorum as a guest, play a new song or two live, reduce the price of tickets, get Axl to do some promo/interviews etc)
  18. Really enjoyed episode 1 of the litho podcast, thanks guys, good job I've not listened to part 2 yet but looking forward to it, just need to find the time to make sure I can watch it as I'd definitely need to see the litho's on screen as you talk about them - otherwise I won't have a clue what you're talking about
  19. I'm supposed to be going to Florida in a fortnight for Wrestlemania and to visit the theme parks Hoping it all goes ahead but just gonna have to wait and see. As long as my flight still leaves I'll be on the plane no matter what
  20. Thanks for sharing ludurigan, really cool hearing this The JJH album is a classic, will always be a favourite of mine so its nice to hear Izzy talking about how he came up with some of the songs
  21. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    Been listening to Billie eilishs album, lots of cool songs on it
  22. The hard drives never existed imo. Just a ploy to try and get other hoarders to make contact.
  23. Glad I didn't buy a ticket for the Scotland show yet too. I check in on the forums from time to time but have zero expectations. Hope all the GNR guys are happy and healthy though, I still dig their music. Just seen the same show too many times and won't spend hundreds to hear one or two deep cut variations live. When they start playing new songs or bring back Izzy I'll start contributing to their pension funds again
  24. I thought it was going to be an all new show? Or is that the Euro leg?
  25. Glasgow show announced

    I'll probably go, Glasgow is pretty easy for me to get too. Will wait and see what the setlist is like
