  1. It's quiet at the moment but so is most of the forum. The first couple of years of the reunion it was a busy section with a lot of fan postings. It seems to me the popularity of the section ebbs and flows depending on how many of our female members are posting regularly. That's dropped off recently (see also The GNR Women's Thread). Just an observation but when the forum demographics skew majority male picture threads don't do as well. Caveat: Some guys like discussing photo's obvs but as a broad generalisation that's how it seems to play out.
  2. I do really like this discovery btw. It's a great app.
  3. Sorry. I left it there for most of the day but really image threads belong in here. I left a link so it will still be viewable from D&N for a few days. I get the point about other sections not being well used but we can't just use D&N as a deposit for everything either. Hopefully if it's bumped enough people will spot it. Or add a link to your sig to encourage traffic this way.
  4. If you ever have the misfortune to hear me sing you'll truly know what bad singing is! Stadiums would pay me millions to stay away.
  5. I know this has been done to death on here but I don't think he's that out of shape. I'm considerably younger than him and I couldn't put on that show - I'd be laid on the floor gasping for breath after 20 minutes. Vocal issues aside it's 2-3 hours of aerobic-ish exercise. Maybe there are specific exercises someone can focus on as a man in their late fifties in order to lose the belly but his general fitness can't be that bad otherwise he'd literally collapse. I think his short stature combined with an odd upper body posture (which he's always had) unfortunately makes him look worse that he is
  6. I mostly agree. I never expect SCOM to sound great and this was no exception. There are far better songs (in vocal terms) they could have picked. Slash was on point and just about saved it with his solo.
  7. I am tempted to read some of them now. I believe they go into more detail than TV allows for.
  8. We can post videos from official channels that own the music licensing (this applies to all artists not just GNR). Unfortunately we are being targeted by people who hold a grudge against this forum so every single unofficial video linked gets reported to the RIAA and puts our hosting company under pressure to shut the forum down. These draconian rules around youtube/ social media content is not our choice as a Mod Team. It's a position we have been forced to to take. For a longer explanation everyone joining or who hasn't posted in a while please read downzy's announcement that Padme
  9. I just finished watching all the seasons of Bosch. I can't believe it took me this long to discover it seeing as it's one of the earliest Prime shows and I've had Prime for years. Very well adapted although I understand it was a bit of a mix and match of various books and doesn't 100% stick to original plots. Possibly the best show I've seen that has LA as it's backdrop, really showcases the city in all it's gritty glory. Worth watching just on that alone tbh. It's not as good as The Wire but it's up there and I love the sidekick guy, J Edgar, who was in The Wire. Brilliant actor.
  10. I've made a show thread so I'm going to lock this one so discussion can go in one place. Thanks @UK_GNR for the new date heads up.
  11. We've just created a show thread for this. Perhaps repost your question in there. Thanks
  12. Or it'll be something totally left field like the China Exchange thing Axl did. "this week Axl and Slash sit-down with the Gloucestershire Farmers Gazette'
  13. I wonder why I can't see them? Not that it matters if they aren't relevant. I do but I unblocked and still can't see them. Oh well
  14. Were there comments on the article at one point? The icon at the top shows 471 comments but underneath says comments not available. Did they get shut off?
  15. Chill guys. Tis the season of goodwill and all that. Debate without getting personal. Thanks and Happy New Year!
  16. Happy Christmas and New Year MYGNRFORUM. I hope you all have a lovely holiday season.
  17. I'll get to it over the Xmas period.
  18. Sorry for the late reply. Yes it makes it harder and significantly less fun but unfortunately that is where we are at.
