  1. Oh man. Anyone else get that adrenaline pumping feeling when you've managed to snag a rare record right as it drops on RSD day? I feel so dumb for even saying that. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors needed adrenaline to outrun goddamn sabretooth tigers, and here I am with my heart racing cause I managed to click a button in time to get a record I don't really "need." We live in crazy times. Anyway....this stupid bastard record sold out instantly so they pressed some more for one last drop today here in Japan. I managed to get one. I was only interested in it
  2. No way the re-recorded AFD vocals were used on Live Era. If they were anything like SCOM, they'd stand out like a sore thumb. That version of SCOM was radically different. Man....I'll never forget sneaking into the end of Big Daddy just to hear it....and the goosebumps all over my body when it transitioned from the old version to the new version. That was so exciting.
  3. Very cool Russ....."Midnight on the Inside Out" right into "Lickin" is such a killer one-two punch to open that album....love it. And of course, one of their catchiest singles, "Soul Singin'" is on that album too. The pink wax looks awesome too! I also got the SLINT record I wanted from a decent seller on discogs, and now all that's left are marked up copies by flippers. Bastards. But it was worth frantically clicking "refresh" cause I got the record I wanted, too.
  4. They should have been prepared for the onslaught of traffic. Really stupid on their part.
  5. Well....Amoeba is completely fucked. But it looks like I got lucky....for a minute there was a guy selling on discogs for retail price so I clicked order as fast as I could. Looks like I can finally unclench my asshole. All this for a fucking stupid record with two songs on it. Why do we do this to ourselves, as collectors?? Ugh.
  6. Fucking hell. I knew this would happen. Website's dead. Goddamn greedy cunts on discogs are already trying to get $100 for it, minutes after it went on sale. Fucking scumbags.
  7. Two minutes to sale time and fucking Amoeba's site crashed. What the hell did they expect??
  8. Yeah I checked Amoeba. Sounds like it's gonna be a lottery type thing, like getting tickets at ticketmaster used to be in the 90s. If you aren't one of the first callers in the first minute....you're shit out of luck.
  9. Well, the day is almost upon us. I haven't found any sites that are selling online. After all, the whole point of RSD is to drive in foot traffic to the stores. If anyone has any links to stores that are definitely gonna sell that Slint record, please let me know! Otherwise I gotta pester poor Russ about it...
  10. Use an image hosting site like imgur and then insert it in the url with the box at the bottom there. Anyway.....it's almost time.....August 29th...."Record Store Day." Is it still on? Are there online options? What's my best way to get that damn SLINT record I want so damn much??
  11. My summer of blue vinyls has concluded....the last one just arrived. Some Japanese band I've never heard of; I just bought it cause I love Hisashi Eguchi. The fact that the vinyl is blue is just a bonus. Once again, wanna shout out to Dean for making this possible by snagging that blue B&S for me!!
  12. Can't stop trolling discogs for LPs and 7 inches......you people have created a monster.....
  13. Do you have the spaghetti all-over maxi print, the single ugliest GNR shirt ever made?
  14. Pinball Machine version sounds like shit. It's a midi file. It's all tinny and compressed.
  15. And now here it is, sitting in my room next to my clear vinyl Hyperspace by Beck and a 12 inch of Legal Man, also by Belle and Sebastian.........Tigermilk by Belle and Sebastian on baby blue vinyl. My man Dean came through for me....only 700 of these pressed and he got one for me and mailed it to me in Japan...a complete stranger! What an amazing guy!! Thanks so much man, I owe you big time!!
  16. I have boxes of those back in my parents' house. Can't imagine any of them would be worth more than 50 cents. They were homemade and mass circulated. I was glad to have them at the time, but every bit of content is available digitally and sounds better. But then again....this IS gnr we're talking about. Some weirdo might actually pay money for 30 year old mix tapes.
  17. You get a pre-order in or anything? It's about $400 in Japan!!
  18. No shit??? When was this? Was this the same show he actually sang the snippet from Only Women Bleed? Ya know, some bands are in the habit of surprising fans by playing entire album in a row, unannounced. Pearl Jam's done it. By the third song or so, the crowd goes apeshit cause they realize what's happening. Just imagine a universe where Axl actually gave even the tiniest iota of a shit about his fans, and they did TSI? straight through, just for the hell of it. It's a lovely dream, but the chances of that happening are lower than me being the meat in
  19. Hands down the single worst guitarist to ever perform under the GNR name. I'd take fucking Ashba over him any day. Cause at least Ashba played the goddamn songs the way they were meant to be played. Robin's take on the AFD stuff is excruciating. He sounds like a little kid that found his dad's guitar and just started fucking around with it. I saw him with NIN and he was great, but for fuck's sake, was he godawful in Guns N Roses.
  20. You sure about that? I read every scrap of GNR news I could find voraciously in the 90s (still do) and I never heard anything like that. There were some very obvious and fake fan speculation threads that the reason the band broke up was cause Axl found out about Slash and Stephanie...maybe you're thinking of that? (I would know cause I'm the one that made it up and posted it here years ago for a laugh.....it was promptly deleted.)
  21. Only if what he's saying is actually true, which it very well might not be, and also only if Axl still gives a shit. I've never met Stephanie Seymour and never will, but I have seen women do shit like that, so I for one, believe him. Some women are just fucked up, same as men. I've actually sat at a table with a couple and the woman started rubbing the crotch of the guy next to her, a complete stranger, while the man was oblivious. Or was he? I've always wondered if he knew she was doing it and was some kink he was in on. If this crotch rubbing really occurred in the GNR worl
  22. I'm not interested in getting into an argument with some white knight that thinks these guys are something they're not. I suppose all their arrests which are a matter of public record are "fake" and that they were just "misunderstood?" Grow up.
  23. I've known from the first time I saw a photo of these guys in 1988 that they were a pack of scumbags and not people I should aspire to be like. Didn't make the music any less awesome. If you really think this pack of drugged out sex-fiend degenerates are/were "nice" guys, and you want to preserve that idea of "their personalities" then yeah, don't read the book. In fact, don't read any books or articles about them. This shit is hardly news. These guys really are assholes.
  24. Yeah the dolphin thing is not from the book. Someone on gnfnr decided to write their own fake excerpts which is really easy to do considering how sophmoric and amateurish the writing style is. And the fact that each "chapter" is basically a paragraph or two. Can't believe it took Matt and TWO ghost writers to get this down. Seems like it could have easily been written over the course of a long weekend. Maybe it was. I thought it was funny that Matt claimed that there was some kind of green rabbit creature stalking him when he was coked up out of his mind.....didn'
