  1. Great stuff. At this point I'd pay $1000 to see the band perform like this again Obviously prefer the album version but I'm still digging Slash's take on the Sorry solo here.
  2. Loved this. Yeah, the human stuff wasn't great, but at least it didn't make me want to claw me eyes out like with Godzilla: KOTM, and the film didn't outstay its welcome. And While KOTM had good monster action, this turned everything up to 11. So many cool moments. Glad I avoided the trailer and leaks, I was squealing with joy every five minutes at things I wasn't expecting to see.
  3. By the time they wanted to release the video, two of the guitarists (Robin and Bucket) and a drummer (Brain) were out of the band. And then DJ was announced in March '09. The revolving door of musicians probably contributed to a whole bunch of things not getting released as they would have been "outdated".
  4. Also reminds me how out of all the experimental stuff on the Village leaks, there was the southern-rock sounding "The Rebel" sitting out of place.
  5. Thanks for the link. It's interesting how Axl was courting guitarists all across the spectrum, I think a "nuGuns" with Marc Ford or Derek Trucks would have had a very different sound: Even Finck's look (and solo spot) in '06/'07 seemed more traditional blues-rock-y, could've passed for a Robinson brother.
  6. Do we know which show the Music Machine 1986 one that is up on YouTube was from? There were two Music Machine shows that year but I don't see a month on either video.
  7. In terms of which tracks don't have Bucket, definitely Oh My God and most likely all the stuff dated March 2000: Catcher Perhaps Atlas Prostitute Quicksong Oklahoma IRS Me & My Elvis D Tune Curly Shuffle Even though it's dated later in 2000, I don't think Bucket is on the Rough Mix CD 1 demo of TWAT? I could be wrong on that one. TWAT had been in the works since '99 at least since it has a Howerdel credit. EDIT: Also, in terms of what Beavan worked on: Sean Beavan – recording and digital editing (tracks 1, 4–6, 9, 11, 12 and 14) So tha
  8. This and The Batman are the only upcoming superhero/comic book movies I'm looking forward to. I loved the Raimi films, looking forward to multiverse shenanigans.
  9. The album that made me a GNR fan. Love it to this day. TWAT is perfection. Last year's leaks were the best things that have happened since. Can't believe it's 2020 and we still haven't (clearly) heard The General or Soul Monster (with lyrics). At least we got demos of Jackie Chan/Hard School and Atlas Shrugged, and Perhaps and State of Grace were nice surprises. And of course, the masterpiece that is Eye On You
  10. Tahchin Tacos: The "shells" are made in the style of tahchin: rice mixed with saffron-infused water, eggs, and Greek yoghurt, baked until crispy and crunchy. The filling for the ones above is Joojeh Kabob: chicken marinated in saffron, yoghurt, and onion. Topped with barberries. These ones have fesenjoon as a filling: slow-cooked chicken with ground walnuts and pomegranate molasses, topped with pomegranate seeds. I have a few more photos here: https://www.instagram.com/senorsaffron/
  11. Unlike a lot of fans I actually really dig Daron's voice, but Serj is weirdly realllllly low in the mix on Protect the Land, just a little louder would have been perfect.
  12. Protect the Land has really grown on me. I put the SOAD discography on shuffle on Spotify and when it came to Protect the Land I thought it was an older song that I had somehow overlooked. Such a great band, I love going through their back catalogue every once in a while, every time I do so it's like I'm rediscovering the songs and everything is a pleasant surprise.
  13. Had this stuck in my head, bought the single off iTunes. I missed hearing monster riffs from these guys.
  14. Was on Spotify just now and saw this and thought it must be a mistake at first. I've listened to the original countless times, never would've expected Slash to cover it.
  15. If I had a spare $10K lying around I'd buy the Limited Edition one with the litho art, looks well put together. Pinball machines have come a long way, weird to see they have HD screens and clear audio these days.
  16. Lol I have these three in my backlog to play. I tried Binary Domain with my Xbox One controller but turns out it doesn't support it, ended up accidentally resetting my C drive trying to get it to work I have a 360 controller so I'll get around to it at some point.
  17. Completed these three. Beyond Two Souls wasn't bad in the end, still not sure I'd recommend it but the facial textures are really impressive for what was a PS3 game. D4 was what one would expect from a Swery game: quirky Japanese view on Western tropes. Sadly the story ends on a cliffhanger and is unfinished, but if you pick it up cheap (I paid less than £3) it's a fun few hours of zany Swery shenanigans. Yakuza Kiwami is a good game but one is reminded often while playing how truly great Yakuza 0 was. Still, the substories are entertaining and I played the vast majority of them.
