  1. Just to add an advert free forum is one of the perks of club membership if that's something you would be interested in.
  2. Seems like standard Adsense behaviour. Not something we can do anything about other than have no ads at all but that isn't feasible as the revenue helps the forum stay running. Sorry it freaked you out a bit. For what it's worth I also find purchases stalk me, usually on FB. It's a weird algorithm because who is going to buy 2 of the same thing?
  3. You're welcome. I love old photos of landscapes and architecture changing. Never had the opportunity to visit LA as yet - maybe one day when we can all travel easily again!
  4. https://12sunsets.getty.edu This is a cool site to play around with. I know a lot here are interested in or have visited the strip due to the connection to GNR. There's an article here about how it came about https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/museums/ed-ruscha-sunset-strip-getty/2021/01/07/5c14e6ba-4f89-11eb-bda4-615aaefd0555_story.html The article is paywalled but below is a couple of excerpts. Of all the online offerings brought to the surface this year in an earnest, if largely unsatisfying, attempt to make up for the loss of in-person encounters with art, non
  5. If anything further emerges on this rumour a staff member can be PM'd for it to reopen.
  6. Axl will be doing fuck all at the moment except watching CNN and refreshing Twitter in this gripping season finale of Trump's America. Biden will bring us new music.
  7. So could be something, could be nothing. Seems abut the size of it at the minute.
  8. They're young adults now so they'll make their mistakes like previous generations only now it gets played out over SM. Hopefully they'll be fine and get over themselves in a few years time.
  9. I've edited the title of this as there isn't anything concrete at the minute outside of internet speculation.
  10. Apples and trees come to mind. It's all rock n' fkn roll dude!
  11. That's a shame they had a nice sound although I'm not sure they would ever break mainstream. They're all very young still so they might all move around a few times before one or two of them hit on a winning formula. It's not easy to make it big in music now, it probably wasn't ever easy but these days everyone has so much choice of entertainment to consume it must be hard to stand out from a million other teen boys making music on youtube or soundcloud (even with the bonus of a famous Dad).
  12. UK shows without a doubt won't be happening here this summer. It's not even clear if children will be back in full time school by then and our chief medical officer is talking about some restrictions still being necessary next winter so rock concerts are a non starter for the moment. I think Ticketmaster/bands continue to book shows and sell tickets for a couple of reasons a) as PR to remind everyone they still exist and b) keep the revenue turning over so there's still an industry to return to in a few years.
  13. Click on your username on the top bar then go to ignored users. You can add someone from there.
  14. We had an electric car until recently (UK). Had one for about 4 years on lease - so new model each year. The battery life improved massively in that time. We have a charging pod fitted to the front of the house, obviously only doable if you have a driveway. We both loved it and I really miss it. We didn't renew the lease this time because of home working, there isn't much justification for a second car and our larger petrol one is owned and paid off. They still seem very expensive to buy as a regular customer. In our case a business lease made it feasible. Unless you have the very to
  15. Sorry, name changing is a perk of being a Club Member. If you did decide to become a member you'd need to PM a staff member to change it.
  16. Not quite there yet in the UK but Happy New Year anyway. The new one has to be better, right?
  17. If Axl wanted top notch management with years of experience he'd hire it. IMO the reason he doesn't is because he'd be expected to do things he doesn't want to do on someone else's timescale. I suspect he's able to overlook the management shortcomings of TB because there is not much unwanted pressure exerted on him. I do kind of get why on a personal level but it sucks for a lot of fans who would prefer more conventional band output at this point. Ironically though the lack of convention is why most Axl fans became Axl fans in the first place.
  18. I hope you're wrong but sadly this is an entirely feasible outcome going by past behaviours.
  19. I wouldn't buy him the X Series but ended up getting him a pre owned Xbox One X (still fairly expensive!).
  20. The boy wasn't impressed. CyberPunk is being returned when the shops open. He wants the cash instead.
  21. Happy Christmas to everyone who celebrates it. Hope you all manage to have a good one despite everything else this year.
  22. To echo others I'm very underwhelmed. Hence why it's taken 4 days for me to even reply to this topic. I can maintain a level of interest when they're touring but 2020 has shown us that's all there is to them. We might end up getting a much speculated album at some point, which will interest most people here, but like CD will again have missed the window for a bigger impact. They should have come up with something within the first 3 years of the reunion tour.
  23. @Oldest Goat I've got the receipt so if he looks unimpressed when he gets it I'll return it and get him something different or some Xbox credits. I'm not 100% it's his sort of game even if it was working well. His favourite is Halo followed by Assassins Creed. I'm not sure what else he already has though. I just knew he didn't have this one because it's newly out. I ended up buying him an Xbox One X which he won't be expecting so I'm sure it will sweeten the blow if CP2077 isn't his thing. It's a refurb from CEX (they were offering 24 months warranty on all 2nd hand) because you can'
  24. Did Jan's suggestion work last time?
