  1. Apologies for having to take the forum offline for a few days. Forum hosting costs being what they are, it's is financially unfeasible to run a forum like this one where people only show up for the first show of every tour. Previous first shows cause hosting costs to jump dramatically. I was happy to pay for the increased costs for two reasons: 1) People would often stick around and support the forum through their frequent visits and use. 2) The excitement or possibility of something new from the band made paying out of pocket for increased costs tolerable. Neither of those two conditions exist anymore. Had GNR given forum fans something new or exciting to talk about, we would have kept the forum open. But I hope everyone can understand why I opted to shut the forum down for two days. My appetite to spend hundreds of extra dollars for a band that has been playing the same show for the past five years is gone. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. Cheers!

  2. Here's some scattered, long winded thoughts on the show: First up; I was nearing "old man yelling to get off my lawn" status prior to the start of this tour regarding this whole leg. Anyone who pays any attention to this forum was probably crystal clear on how I felt. HOWEVER, the biggest things I bitched about were the following: the stale setlist, the entire band looking & feeling like they were going through the motions and the lack of new material. I would've have probably gone if 1 of the 3 of those things were addressed, but by some miracle, all 3 were. Here's some bad things to get out of the way: Axl's voice. I'll revisit this in my positive remarks too, but he was rough in spots. He also had a lot of timing issues that were really odd. Not a huge deal, but really odd. Bad thing #2: the attendance. Jesus. I know I was telling everyone the numbers would be low but holy shit. 2 of the 3 casinos were passing out free tickets prior to the show and the place was still only 3/4 by well into GN'R. Before you "bUt ThE tOuR iS mAkINg MoNeY! WhY dO yOu CaRe?!" people jump down my throat....it's about a LOT more than GN'R making money for me. They're MY band. I've always rooting for them to win. A 3/4 fill stadium during Estranged, even after handfuls of tickets were being given out at two major casinos is not winning. The good: every goddamn thing else. I know "in a good mood and cracking jokes" is a meme, but wow does it go a long way for the whole vibe of the show when Axl is in a great mood. I've seen GN'R in concert 18 times now since 1991. Last night was the best mood I've ever seen Axl in by a country mile. The stuff during Jungle is a great example. Something fairly major went wrong and the dude just had fun with it. He let the crowd in on the joke, laughed it off with the band, then got back to handling the song. Regarding his voice, this is going to sound like an excuse but he was trying VERY hard. That matters to me a lot. That's the difference between me saying "if you would only put some effort in" and me sitting there thinking "well the dude IS almost 60 and has been singing at an inhuman level for decades" Another thing about Axl's voice is that I was with all casuals and two of the guys I was with are music industry professionals. They were in and around the music industry 24/7, so while they're casual GN'R fans, they're very critical. Outside of the glaring timing issues here and there, both of them kept saying things like "Axl sounds fucking amazing" even in full ass Mickey moments. So it's a reminded that we're the most critical of how he sounds by a long shot. The crowd size ended up working in my favor, so I can even partially include that in my good things. We were upgraded the moment we walked in. My son was at the show with his mom, so I was also able to grab tickets for him and her. So instead of all of us being in the upper bowl and me not sitting with my son, we all got moved down to the lower bowl and our new seats were all in the same section. The minor setlist tweaks also went a very long way for me. There were BIG songs that I didn't even think of until they started. Both CW and NR were moments where I was like "oh yeah, they haven't done that song yet". As opposed to the last leg where I knew exactly what was coming for every second of the show. The general chemistry between the band themselves and the crowd was rad as hell to be a part of. Everyone on stage was having fun with each other, then in turn having fun with the crowd. As a side note, Slash was ON FIRE the whole night. OK....let's get absurd now. Say what you will about that song but goddamn is it fun live. For disclosure: the song grew on me ahead of time but it was really something else live. Even if I still hated it, I probably would have had fun while they were playing it. As stated at the beginning, I knew this was going to be a rambling post so I'm sorry if it was hard to read / didn't make sense lol. In short, I had 100x more fun than I ever expected I would. You know why? Because the band put it a lot more effort, they tweaked the setlist and they included new music. I feel like I'm forgetting stuff I wanted to say, so if I left something out that anyone has questions on, just tag me in the thread and I'll do my best to answer. I had a very rough time with my mental health last week but a few things happened over the weekend that reminded me that there are many GREAT human beings in the GN'R community. Not the least of which were some of the things surrounding the show itself. If you took the time to read this whole thing, thanks

  6. I had a thorough look at the online repertories of ASCAP, BMI, GMR (Global Music Rights) and SESAC, which are PRO's (Performing Rights Organizations) that collect royalties on behalf of songwriters and their publishers, so they list all the musicians who receive songwriting royalties for each song: https://www.ascap.com/repertory#/ https://globalmusicrights.com/Catalog https://www.sesac.com/repertory/search https://repertoire.bmi.com/ These data are the result of the way a band has decided to split the publishing rights/royalties between the members and may not be identical to the writing credits in an album's liner notes - for example, a band member may not be credited as one of the writers of a particular song, but may be entitled to royalties for it. Axl is on SESAC, Slash and Duff are on GMR, and the rest of the members (old and "nu"), as well as the outside writers (West Arkeen, Del James, etc.) are on ASCAP or BMI. ASCAP and GMR report the percentage they control over other PRO's; for example, on a song listed as co-written by Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven, ASCAP reports the percentage it controls, which corresponds to the combined shares of Izzy and Steven, and the same goes for GMR in regards to Slash and Duff's combined shares. SESAC doesn't provide this information, which would be Axl's share - however, in some cases it can be calculated based on the information from the other PRO's. BMI sometimes does and other times doesn't reports the percentages for its own repertory that is separate from ASCAP. Appetite For Destruction and GN'R Lies In the albums' liner notes all original songs are credited collectively to "Guns N' Roses" and, wherever the case, to additional songwriters (West Arkeen on It's So Easy, Chris Weber on Anything Goes, Reckless Life and Move To The City). The information in ASCAP and GMR confirms what we know from other sources about how the publishing was split between the members: Axl 25%, Slash, Izzy and Duff 20% each, and Steven 15%. For example, ASCAP controls 35% of Welcome To The Jungle (Izzy's 20% + Steven's 15%) and GMR controls 40% (Slash and Duff's 20+20%), which leaves 25% for Axl. In the case of additional songwriters, as expected, the band members' shares are decreased: on It's So Easy, ASCAP controls 54% (which includes Izzy's, Steven's and West Arkeen's shares) and GMR controls 28% (Slash and Duff's combined share); on Anything Goes, Reckless Life and Move To The City, ASCAP controls 41.5% (Izzy's, Steven's and Chris Weber's shares) and GMR controls 36% (Slash and Duff's shares). So what's left is, apparently, Axl's share. Use Your Illusion I and II Unlike Appetite and Lies, the UYI liner notes list specific writers for each song (e.g. Axl and Izzy on You Could Be Mine, Slash and Axl on Locomotive, etc.). However, that doesn't affect the way the publishing for each song is split: according to the PRO's, the four "main" members (Axl, Slash, Izzy and Duff) get a fixed percentage for each original song written entirely by the band. Only this time the way the shares were calculated was more complicated compared to the shares for AFD and Lies songs, so the percentages are not round figures (according to Slash's book, that happened because they had to calculate a small share for Matt - and I guess Dizzy, too - as well as because of the many outside writers like West Arkeen, Del James, etc.). For example, although only Axl is credited for writing November Rain in the album liner notes, GMR (Slash and Duff) controls 47.68% and ASCAP (Izzy) 24.26% - and these shares apply for every original UYI song that doesn't have additional writers (the decimals in the ASCAP shares differ slightly from song to song - it may have to do with the publishers). The remaining percentages obviously include Axl's shares and, probably, Matt's and Dizzy's small shares (the data for Matt and Dizzy are not clear; ASCAP lists them as writers on some UYI songs and SESAC lists them on all songs). So, the fact that, for example, Slash is not credited in the liner notes as a co-writer on Estranged, doesn't affect his royalties. The formula they seemingly used was: first they determined who wrote what (ie. the writers of each songs that we read in the liner notes) and the percentages of each one's contributions on each song (e.g. Don't Cry, 50% Axl and 50% Izzy); then they calculated all that together and determined each one's shares on the album as a whole (at least the songs that didn't have outside writers) so Izzy, for example, had a share around 24.5% on the album; and then they applied those percentages to each song. In the case of the songs co-written by outside writers, the percentages vary: - Right Next Door To Hell: GMR (Slash, Duff) 32.52%; ASCAP (Izzy) 16.18%. So the rest includes the shares of Axl, Timo Kaltio and probably Matt and Dizzy. - Bad Obsession: GMR (Slash, Duff) 33.38%; ASCAP (Izzy, West Arkeen) 47.1%. So the rest includes the shares of Axl and probably Matt and Dizzy. - Back Off Bitch: GMR (Slash, Duff) 38.84%; ASCAP (Izzy, Paul Tobias) no info. - The Garden: GMR (Slash, Duff) 9.54%; ASCAP (Izzy, West Arkeen) 54.84%; BMI (Del James) no info. So the rest includes the shares of Axl, Del James and probably Matt and Dizzy. - Don't Damn Me: GMR (Slash, Duff) 40.44%; ASCAP (Izzy, Dave Lank) 28.55%. So the rest includes the shares of Axl and probably Matt and Dizzy. - Yesterdays: GMR (Slash, Duff) 15.72%; ASCAP (Izzy, West Arkeen, Billy McCloud) 68%; BMI (Del James) no info. So the rest includes the shares of Axl, Del James and probably Matt and Dizzy. Ain't Goin' Down (pinball machine) GMR (Slash, Duff) 50%; ASCAP (Izzy) 25%; So the remaining 25% is Axl's. Shadow Of Your Love ASCAP has no information about it. GMR and SESAC list Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff, Steven and Paul Tobias as writers (without percentages). Appetite For Destruction 2018 reissue (Locked and Loaded) - "new" songs. The Plague, New Work Tune and Ain't Goin' Down No More (instrumental) can be found only on ASCAP. All Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven are listed as writers. ASCAP (Izzy, Steven) controls 37.48%, so their combined share is slightly higher than for Appetite/Lies songs. West Arkeen songs/"Hell House demos" - Crash Diet: West Arkeen, Axl, Del James and Daniel Clarke are listed as writers. ASCAP (West Arkeen) controls 31%. - Bring It Down Home: West Arkeen and Axl are listed as writers. ASCAP (West Arkeen) controls 50%, so the other 50% is Axl's. - Too Much Too Soon: West Arkeen and Duff are listed as writers. ASCAP (West Arkeen) controls 90%, so the other 10% is Duff's. - Sentimental Movie: West Arkeen, Duff and Del James are listed as writers. ASCAP (West Arkeen) controls 75%, so the other 25% is divided between Duff and Del James. * There's no information at all about Just Another Sunday (most likely because it's not on the West Arkeen tape). Chinese Democracy + Oh My God In this case, the credits in the album's liner notes coincide with the names found in the repertories * (EDIT: I made the mistake to think that the credits on wikipedia are based on the album's liner notes, so I didn't bother to look at the booklets. But I then realised that they're based on the repertories, so there are additional writers who are not credited on the album - I've marked them in yellow). Axl is on SESAC (doesn't give info on percentages). Dizzy, Robin Finck, Tommy Stinson, Paul Tobias and Pitman are on ASCAP. Buckethead, Brain and Josh Freese are on BMI . So the data provided by ASCAP and BMI about the percentages they controls on each CD song may be actually informative, at least to an extent, about each member's contributions: - Oh My God: 50% Axl; 48% divided between Dizzy, Paul, Sean Riggs and Tommy; 2% Josh Freese. - Chinese Democracy: UPDATE: 50% Axl; 27% divided between Josh Freese and Caram; 21% divided between Dizzy, Paul, Robin and Tommy; 2% Eric Caudiex. - Shackler's Revenge: UPDATE: 50% Axl; 45% divided between Buckethead, Brain, Pete Scaturro and Caram; 5% Robin; . - Better: 50% Axl; 50% Robin. - Street Of Dreams: 63% Axl; 37% divided between Dizzy, Paul, Tommy and Robin. - If The World: 55% Axl; 45% Pitman. - There Was A Time: 50% Axl; 50% divided between Dizzy, Paul and Tommy. - Catcher In The Rye: 67% Axl; 33% divided between Dizzy, Paul, Tommy and Robin. - Scraped: UPDATE: 52% Axl; 48% Buckethead and Brain Caram (thanks, @Voodoochild). - Riad N' The Bedouins: 50% Axl; 50% divided between Dizzy, Paul, Tommy and Robin. - Sorry: 50% Axl; 50% divided betweeen Buckethead, Brain and Scaturro. - I.R.S.: 75% Axl; 25% divided between Dizzy and Paul. - Madagascar: 50% Axl; 50% Pitman and MLK estate. - This I Love: 100% Axl. - Prostitute: 90% Axl; 10% divided between Paul and Robin. It seems that Axl reserved a fixed 50% for himself for lyrics, melodies and probably production. Then his percentage might increase depending on the part he had in writing the music. So, for example, it appears that Axl wrote most of the music on Prostitute (since he has 90%) and a big part of the music on I.R.S (since he has 75%). Absurd As far as the "liner notes" go, there seems to be a return to the Appetite/Lies formula (which is a common formula used by many bands): it's credited collectively to "Guns N' Roses". As I posted in the Absurd thread the other day, the song has now been added to the ASCAP and GMR repositories (SESAC is yet to be updated). ASCAP lists Axl, Slash, Duff and Dizzy as writers/royalty recipients. ASCAP (Dizzy) controls 30% (15% directly to Dizzy + another 15% for his publisher), so this is Dizzy's total share. Pitman, who is also on ASCAP, is not listed as a writer. Updated ASCAP listing: GMR has not yet been fully updated with all the writers and Slash and Duff's share: Hard Skool Liner notes: Similarly to Absurd, on the various platforms (Spotify, etc.) the song is credited collectively to "Guns N' Roses". However, according to the press release issued by the band, it was written by Axl. Publishing/royalty shares: The song hasn't been added to any repertory yet. But, based on the press release and what happened with Absurd, it's safe to say that only Axl, Slash and Duff will be listed as writers/royalty recipients - which means that it won't appear on ASCAP, since none of Axl/Slash/Duff is represented by them.

  7. Back in the hotel and I’m EXHAUSTED. But wow. I truly couldn’t have asked for a better first show back. I’m happy beyond what words can express. I REALLY needed that. I’m going to write a whole wall of text tomorrow for my review, but for now, I’ll just give the biggest highlight of the night: AXL WAVED AT ME. TWICE. 😭 I’ll go into more detail tomorrow, but yeah, I’m basically never getting over it and I’m so happy about it.

  11. Silkworms / Absurd is the second worst song GN'R has ever recorded outside of My World. Having said that, I admire the action itself on a certain level. We wanted them to play something new.....they played something new. We wanted them to shake things up.....that song in particular is a big shake up. Slash & Duff playing on that God awful song from 20+ years ago is just so bizarre, but again, it's something different. In many ways, this is the most GN'R thing that GN'R has ever done. I still hate the song, but I admire the action itself.

  13. I give the Axl, the insane man, credit for this in a weird way. The first single of the reunion, the first GNR song in 30 years with Slash and Duff? Considering the nostalgia cash grab nature of the tour, you'd think a Rick Ruben-esque retread nostalgia song that shares the same structure of an old GNR song (like Black Sabbath's 13) would have been the easy choice. Nope, fuck you. You get Silkworms, bitch. It's insanity. I can't believe this

  16. I know such an overtly positive thread will probably be met with negativity by some, but I think Axl, band and management have done a great job of turning things around in 2021. I won't lie, I was pretty jaded and cynical before the tour started, but for the first time in ages it feels like it's fun to be a Guns fan again. Not everyone can make it to the live shows and there hasn't been a whole lot to feel positive about with regards to Guns for those of us unable to see the band live in recent years. Whilst I am (perhaps naively) hoping that the single releases continue and that one day we might even get a full album, I must tip my hat to the band for finally entering the 21st century, embracing the use of streaming services, playing new songs live and even releasing a physical format single for the first time since 1996. Nice one band and management.

  20. I appreciate everyone's kind words and willing to listen to me vent. FYI, I talk about it more on my latest episode after the interview with Dee. Truthfully, I toiled with starting this conversation. Don't want to appear bitter, angry, or entitled. Especially since I don't know Team Brazil at all. I don't want to formulate my opinion based on other's comments. I want to err on the side of them being good people, how would I really know? People think Axl's a jerk, but those close to him say otherwise. Goes for all of us! Some of the obstacles have been going on for years. To be expected, I'd be an idiot radio person to think otherwise. But also as a person with feelings (wah wah me), it sucks knowing that Richard/Dizzy/Frank/Melissa were told not to do my podcast. Frank had a blast...he told me. I'm told by an ex-member that Melissa wants to do it. And I don't want them in trouble, as crazy as that sounds! But Frank, Melissa, etc have other projects to promote. And I may be the only interviewer who wouldn't bombard them with GNR questions. Over the years, I've maybe sent 4 emails to Fernando? So not a lot. Messaged Beta once on Instagram. All very polite, offering to play by whatever rules they have. Getting no response from a major act, I accept. But being told by sources close to them that I'm being blocked, upsets me. And clearly all of you. I came to a tough decision to air this "dirty laundry" in hopes it will open up a communication. I've tried everything else. Patience is a good song, but it's hard to keep that feeling. So I wouldn't suggested "spamming" and I'm trying to navigate this so they don't receive hate mail. Just maybe, if real fans tag band members/managers with requests to come on the podcast, which other shows and fanbases do, maybe...just maybe, Fernando will take me up on the offer just to talk.

  25. September 17th (tomorrow for those still in North America) marks the 30th anniversary of the release of Use Your Illusion 1 & 2. Figured it appropriate to start the discussion now since 30 years ago there were kids across North America lining up to buy their first copies at midnight. Curious how people perceive the albums 30 years on. Did you buy both on the first day? Did you buy one and a friend buy the other? I didn't get my first two copies (in CD form) until six months later in April of 1992 (they were birthday presents from friends). I relied on the radio to hear new songs and some mixtapes I made with some friends. GNR was always something I was aware of, but it wasn't until these two albums that made me become a huge fan. People often cite Appetite as their best creative output, but for me it was the Illusion albums. They are still my favourite Guns albums to date. For the many reasons people criticized the records are the reasons why I love them. They were an attempt to be something more than your typical blues-based rock band. Both albums helped cement GNR's company amongst their legendary predecessors. Hearing and watching Axl play November Rain made me want to learn how to play the piano. I've been playing for almost 30 years now, still play an hour almost every day. For me, Axl's legend grew to almost mythical like status with UYI1&2. I couldn't understand how one man could have so many different voices. His vocals sounded so different on so many songs. How he would weave melodies over long and sustained chord progressions (like Coma and Locomotive) was stellar. The videos for each single were astonishing, if not insane. These albums and their accompanying videos helped to create an otherworldly aura around the band. I truly feel bad for the fans of the band who were born too late have experienced this period. These albums made them feel larger than life. It was a great time to be a Guns fan. #wheresizzy

  26. The fact that their is now confirmation of a studio recording is pretty big news to me. I know some of the community are disappointed that these releases are just copy and paste jobs, but I don't even care, anymore. The fact that there is activity and that we are getting "new" studio recordings with Axl, Slash, and Duff is fucking great considering I didn't think that would ever be happening in between 2018 and this tour. The copy and paste job also means that a full album will be a pretty easy task for them. Absurd is really just Slash and Duff thrown on an existing track, that could have taken them a day each to put their parts over. Axl didn't mull over Absurd, it sounds like it was recorded over, mixed and mastered quick, and that was that. Production sounds fine to me Bring on Hard Skool- it rocks, its catchy, its short, it has a great GNR-chorus, the new version seems to have a ton of Slash leads, the bridge is pretty unique... It isn't the greatest song in their catalog, and I am sure there will be better songs on the (alleged) record, but HS song is actually a good choice for a single. Cannot believe Absurd was picked first , still cracks me up. Let's goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

That meant that any scenes that took place during school were hard to understand. School... hard... Not to mention Charlie Brown's teacher sounded like a wah pedal, and we all know how much Slash loves to use one of those. It's confirmed. Hard School will be performed tonight.

  31. It really was a great show/experience.. Not perfect but was a fucking blast and better than the last time I saw them in 2017. I still wish they would shake up the song order a bit. There are songs I wish they would have played that will probably creep up later in the tour like PTU, Locomotive and Think About You.. Out Ta Get me... But this was still only the second show. It is what it is.. Axl didn't sound great but you can see he was trying and the crowd was picking him up the whole show by singing a long loudly and I think he appreciated that. It seemed that every time he had a crack or wtf moment Slash would come right in and pick him back up with a killer solo or lead. They ended up packing the seats somehow and it looked pretty close to a full house and people were singing to nearly every song. I like the new Jungle Intro and was happy that Axl worked the "You know where the fuck you are" back into it. I was stoked to see You're Crazy and Dead Horse.. Slither isn't what it could be but still cool to see.. Even though I am not a fan of NITL Rocket Queen it was still great and the crowd participation makes it all good. I went to grab a beer and take a piss the song before it so I missed the Fortus intro which worked out perfectly Say what you want about KOHD and I agree!! I would love to see a throwback version but people were still singing a long loud the whole time.. Not just the but chorus but the verses too. AND Axl brought back his signature "Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey" at one point which I thought was fucking awesome. It is the little things. Nothing too exciting about Absurd.. It only took me a minute to realize it was a song from 20 years ago that I didn't like then.. Was still cool to see something different with that voice and sounded better than TIL, Better and all that stuff. Civil War and November Rain were great.. It is obvious the tempo has been adjusted on some of these songs and it sounds great! They feel much more loose.. I am sure Axl sounded Mickey on NR but again the crowd singing every word with him made up for it. Bummer about the one song encores but I am sure that will change as the tour moves on.. Slash was fucking great and people were showing him love the whole time... After the Hershey show I was a bit weary walking into this one but it ended up being a great rock show and it appeared that fun was had by all.

  32. Bumblefoot was kind enough to give me a clip celebrating the 100th episode of my podcast. He gave a GREAT quote about hearing Van Halen for the first time and the loss of Edward Van Halen. Blabbermouth picked up the story and featured my show (again) along with a spotlight on Ron's quote. No, this isn't directly GN'R related but hey, at least it's not a 10th thread about HS https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/ron-bumblefoot-thal-hearing-eddie-van-halen-for-first-time-blew-my-mind/

  33. Hello everyone. I'm sorry to push this old thread up but I do have footage of 2 of those Marquee gigs. I'm friends with the Quireboys, back then Queerboys, did a bit of roadie work and recorded them back in the days. The Marquee was like our 2nd living room for a while and they played the night after GNR's first night and GNR came to watch their gig which more or less got them the support spot a few months later at the Hammersmith. I don't want to bore you so to shorten the story, I taped quite a lot of their first and second night at the Marquee and also the Hammersmith gig. I haven't checked the tapes in like 30 years and actually just dug them up 2 weeks ago. Also need to find a way to transfer the old tapes but if you guys are interested in the footage I'll put it up somewhere after I transferred them. So let me know and I see what I can do.

  35. It's absurd the amount of threads we have for Absurd, but absurd the lack of Pitman in these Absurd threads.

  36. NOW WE BELIEVE EVEN MORE SO,, LET THERE BE PUSSY MAGGOTS, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST THANK YOU WORM BY TAKE CARE US PITMAN IS BETTER THAN THE OLD ONE It is but it doesn't even matter. After all this shit the past 13 years, the fact that this is even happening and its Silkworms and its the first song with Slash is literally the most absurd release they could have done. The surrealism alone makes this incredible

  38. - Hey, buddy from 2013. Axl and Slash are gonna reunite. - What? You’re pulling my leg, right? Didn’t he recently say something like "not in this lifetime"? - You have no idea. Oh and Axl will front AC/DC for a bit. - Whaaat? Seriously? - And he’ll sound like the old days then. - No way! How does he look like in your timeline anyway? Still slim, long hair and all? - Don’t ask. By the way, there will come a time when no YouTube videos will be allowed on MyGnr forum. Other than official stuff, that is. - On a forum? That's ridiculous. Why? - Cause of a few sociopaths and a certain management team. You wanna hear something funny? - Absolutely. Still can’t wrap my head around all this information. - You wanna know what the first Guns single will be? - Some old demo from the golden era? The mysterious later sessions? Or even a new song? - Silkworms. - What. The fuck. But didn’t you say they’d reunite? Slash and Duff back in the band? - Yes. Isn’t that... absurd? - I’m speechless. Wait, why did you say it like that? - Ha. Now get this: the Silkworms thread on the forum will have 90 pages within like two weeks, and people will even kind of grow to like it. - Ok, now you’re fucking with me. - See ya next time!
