  1. Well done for sticking with it if it's not your typical kind of thing really glad you liked it despite that!
  2. Studio: Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, Steven Live: Axl, Ron, Richard, Robin, Tommy, Dizzy, Chris, Brain/Frank Overall, the 2006 line-up is my favourite. They played blistering rock n' roll shows.
  3. One for the metalheads of the forum (wee warning, there are death metal growls, so it won't be for everyone):
  4. Wait until he hears about the Gender Recognition Act in Scotland...
  5. In fairness, the alt-right's adopted definition of "red pilled" is a pretty recent development that I'd imagine is pretty far removed from the Wachowskis' original idea.
  6. The entire premise of the franchise is literally "getting woke", so I feel like that particular hope may be somewhat misplaced.
  7. Jotunheimen is such a cool place name... giant country.
  8. Amazing! In Scotland we have a lot of residual glacial geomorphology, and it looks pretty similar, but over the sea in Norway it's still an active process. Stunning photos, dude.
  9. I'm just surprised that Sidney Powell had the intellectual capacity to become a qualified lawyer...
  10. Goodbye to a stalwart of rock music. The Rolling Stones have been a constant influence on global pop culture for such a long time, it's strange to even imagine a world without them, but we're without one of them tonight and poorer for it.
  11. I would like to throw in another vote for Rock Am Ring 2006. Also a contender (and probably my pick) for the greatest performance of Nightrain.
  12. Possibly because people kept mispronouncing it as "huge" .
  13. For years, I thought his nickname was "Huge", as in "very large" and I couldn't really work out why because he seemed to be of a pretty average height and build. It was only recently that I realised that it's pronounced "HyooGee" and now I'm not sure if I'm more or less confused because I've no idea what that even means.
  14. There's a word in my part of Scotland for that mental image... Gadz is a general expression of disgust, but when something is really vile, you can upgrade it to Gadzafuck.
  15. It so elegantly epitomised the Trump presidency in a single event - make an absolutely howling error, and then rather than admit it and try to put it right, double down and claim that "Of course we wanted to hold a press conference in a hitherto unheard-of garden centre rather than a four star hotel". As @Coma16 says, the best political satirists couldn't have written it. I also remember being in tears laughing.
  16. I will be forever grateful to him for the sublime moment of comedy that was Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
  17. "Increase America's carbon footprint"
  18. Originally, we had five actors playing the same character in one timeline before the Craig reboot, do you think with any new actor coming in, they'll carry on the Craig timeline or reboot that too? It might get a bit tiresome after the third continuity, like, how many times do you want to retell the story of this guy's life?
  19. Yeah, it's absolute horseshit and throws any notion that GN'R were judged objectively on the quality of their shows and releases when Slash and Duff weren't in the band out of the window. They sounded significantly better in 2010 than they do nowadays in a live environment, and Chinese Democracy has many songs that are much better than Silkworms (my subjective opinion, obviously, but I don't think it's baseless). The positive PR based just on who is standing up there, rather than what they're doing, is pretty blatant. I think that's a big part of why I wanted the CD-era line-up to succeed so much, I felt like everyone from the reviewers, to the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame with their bullshit decision not to induct Tommy, Richard, Robin, Ron, Brain, Frank, Chris, despite inducting Rob Trujillo with Metallica and Josh Klinghoffer with the Chilis, to their own manager in Irving Azoff were willing them to fail. That's why I was so pissed off when the reunion happened. It felt like those bastards had won.
  20. Only GN'R could make us wait 20 years and 'reward' us with a slight tweak of fucking Silkworms. Top trolling. GG's guys .
