  1. Weren't you moving to California? Or am I making things up? Either way, I hope you get the job!
  2. That's awful. I hope you get well soon!
  3. It saves me a LOT of stress. I want to be at the rail, so I can keep up for 3+ hours and don't have annoying people in front of me. I only do this for GNR as they are my by far favourite band (ridicule me all you want, you're on a fan forum too ). I have honestly never regretted paying that much. If I'm going to see my favourite band, I want the best spots I can get, and without stress. It's worth that much for me. Also, and I've said this a million of times. I can't understand why anyone would consider buying loads of vinyl a good way to spend their cash, or designer sneakers, or a trip
  4. Getting my second dose on Saturday. I feel a bit odd, as it's as if I've set in the quarantine ways. The thought of having people over or being in a bar without a facemask is a bit daunting to me. It's not that I'm really scared, but I don't really look forward to it. I've been for drinks once since the bars here reopened, and that was fun, but I don't feel like going all out yet. The only thing I really look forward to is doing fun stuff with my daughter. I guess the challenge will be in a few weeks, when we're going on a holiday for the first time in two years. Sitting on a plane f
  5. Don't think those would have been regarded as own goals before this tournament. Whoever happens to touch the ball even the slightest before it goes in, gets names as the one making the goal. It gives the wrong image imo. And it sucks for the one who really scored (even if the ball gently touched an opponent).
  6. Sorry, I have nothing to contribute, only that OMG it's been over 5 years since China Exchange Reading this thread reminded me of all the stuff that was said and discussed over half a decade ago. I'd forgotten a lot of it, so thanks all. And God, I hope we'll have something new to discuss in a few weeks when the tour kicks off! An new update would be nice instead of diving into the past
  7. Wow, that looks truly great. Very impressive. It looks perfect. So great you're happy with it, because it obviously took a long time and a lot of hard work to make it as amazing as this.
  8. A friend of mine was in bed for two days after the second Pfizer shot. She had no trouble at all after the first one. I know two people who got Moderna and were sick for two days too. One of those works at a hospital and she said about 1 in 3 nurses there had flulike symptoms for a day or two after getting the Moderna shot. So from my experience, flulike symptoms seem to occur with all three vaccines quite randomly. Nothing really bad though. I think I'll just try to keep my agenda as empty as possible the days following my shots, just to be on the safe side.
  9. I got news I'll be getting my first jab in less than two weeks and my send before the end of June Meanwhile everything is starting to open up again, but numbers are still pretty high. So I'm sitting it out until I'm fully vaccinated. Been like this for over a year now, I can keep this up for another month and a half. Vaccination seems to be going a lot faster now FINALLY! So let's hope most people get their first jab before the summer.
  10. Work for me, but it's kind of fun work, so I'm good. My oldest daughter is at her dad's, so no driving around for me this weekend. Just me and my little baby girl (who I don't think I've mentioned here) We might go out for a stroll. Nothing more to do here during corona anyway. The weather should be good, only a bit chilly. Bars and restaurants are supposed to open again in two weeks, but I think I'll just wait it out until I get my vaccine.
  11. Nice Yesterdays. Hope they decide to do this more often.
  12. Great for you! I would love to do it the other way around. Move up north in the summer when it gets too hot here Sadly, no family with property there to inherit, so I'll have to get my own. I must admit I was getting a bit scared when I read: Can't wait to... But glad you don't wish your mother any harm
  13. Groningen? I didn't even know that was a concert venue. I wonder if @username has anything to do with that.
  14. Moderna and Astra Zeneca are consistently delivering far less than they agreed on (often not even half of what was promised). It seems like dirty games are being played, but I don't really know what to believe. Seems like UK and US are blocking the export of vaccines that are produced in their countries while lots are being manufactured here in Europe and shipped abroad. EU was talking about blocking export of namely Astra Zeneca until they deliver the promised vaccines in the EU. Astra Zeneca's CEO was saying they have production troubles, but they seem to be delivering fine in the UK. A
  15. Maybe this is a good excuse to shelve that book for good, Matt. I'm sure your daughter will be grateful
  16. Just a remark: In the early 90s there was a 60s revival. We were teenagers listening to our parents' music: Stones, Doors, Beatles, Kinks, Jimi Hendrix and so many more. Around that same time you had an ABBA revival with bands covering them. So I think saying 'music was better in the past' isn't a new thing. Even when so many artists were releasing so many albums that stood the test of time, at that same time, people were saying: 'They don't make music like that anymore'. BUT! every time my daughter listens to her music, I can't help but say: do you think anyone will still be listening to
  17. I would really like to hear @SoulMonster's input about this. Or anyone else's who can shed some light on this. Here in Belgium they say that there are less blood clots in non-vaccinated people than in the Astra Zeneca vaccinated population. Of course people will still be getting blood clots and die, regardless of the vaccine. Like our minister said: If someone drinks a glass of water and dies the day after, will we blame the water? That seems so logical, so why stop the vaccination if vaccinated people get less blood clots than the overall population? It makes me wonder if we're not being
  18. If I recall correctly, GNR always said it was an old recording and nothing was re-recorded. So that would be Steven. But Steven said it wasn't him. Hence the doubts.
  19. I wonder if we'll get it in 2022 already, only one year late, like AFD. (And please update your sig!)
  20. No, rock4eva was from Australia.
  21. I only met her online, but I've never met anyone as courageous as her. Even though life was particularly harsh on her, she never lost her sense of humor and there was never any bitterness. I'm sure she was an inspiration to many she met, both irl and online. She spoke highly of you, @ZoSoRose, you were a dear friend to her. I hope she's at peace now.
  22. Yeah, after all these years we still have no clue what the point was of all that. I wonder if we'll ever know. I still remember being scolded for calling that a disgrace on the Nightrain Forum, where it was called brilliant (or genius, can't remember) marketing by someone.
  23. What a bunch of whiny bitches. Stay out of the birthday thread if you have nothing else to add but the usual whining for the umpteenth time. This is a fan forum so call me mad for being a fan and expecting people to be a bit less negative than elsewhere on the internet. Sad that people who choose to see the glass half full or just are grateful for what the band and Axl have given us can't even get one thread without the usual bitching.
  24. Happy birthday, Axl! Have a great day!
  25. You don't have to imagine how effective they are. You can simply google it. As for the people who aren't blindly following experts and in favour of critical thinking: I've been taking medication for most of my life and had all the vaccines they suggest. Do I know what's in my meds or vaccines? Really? Of course not. I'm not a doctor. So I count on others to tell me what's best for me and my health. If I go to the doctor when I'm sick and he prescribes meds, am I a dumbass for following his treatment 'blindly'? Should I be more critical? What good would that be if I don't have the expertis
