Side note, I just watched all 3 Indiana Jones movies for the first time in my life the other day. 

I now get that "Let it go Indiana" reference and I'm pretty stoked about it haha. 

Haha! I go back and forth whether that or Raiders is my favorite.

Care to share an example of Beta attacking a fan

She attacked margott just a cpl months ago 

Just a few days ago she told someone the world would be a better place without him just cause he didn't like absurd

No, it was because the guy suggested Axl didn't sing himself, or something like that. I can't remember exactly but it wasn't simply because someone didn't like the song. And again, I was asking for examples of Beta attacking fans for asking about new music.

Dang. If Beta is attacking the number one GnR super fan then it's truly the end of days.

I am not denying that Beta has attacked fans. We all know she has. But I was specifically curious about the claim that she had attacked someone for merely asking about new music. I can't remember having seen that. As for whether her attacks have been provoked or not: I am sure she has made mistakes but I am also sure that some of the attacks that outsiders may feel were unprovoked actually had a backstory to them that isn't known to outsiders. Claiming that she attacks fans solely for asking about new music, is part of the problem. It is what we fans can fix. It is on us to be factual in our criticism of Team Brazil. Being imprecise and accusing them for things that aren't true, just reinforces the animosity. And then it is on them to raise above petty insults and act like professional managers. That's on them.

If there's money to be made, it'll get rreleaed on that format. And there's a lot of money to be made in cassettes right now. I have zero interest in them myself, but they're made a big comeback. So if a GN'R alvum is coming in the next year, I'd make a strong bet it'll get a cassette release. 

Me, and my 1999 Mercedes-Benz (only has cassette player as an option) thank you!

Can't remember it. What was said? 

Her "complaints complaints complaints" comment.

I don't care about TB and don't spend much time criticizing them. However, it is absolutely tiresome to see certain people go from bashing TB to kissing their ass when Fernando shows up every three years. Especially tiresome to see others blame fans for driving them away.

Would be nice also to not have people associating immigrants with all sorts of shit, especially comparing Beta to a racist cartoon character. I don't care if she's a terrible person or not, this is way above that.

Agree. But I don't think anyone here is blaming the fans for real. Keep in mind that fans are starving for info and it's pretty normal to want that.

Yeah, that shit is inexcusable. Glad this forum is clean from such shit now. 

I think if any so-called professional managers, like Doc or Mercuriadis, had got the same shit thrown at them as the Lebeis have, they too would have reacted. There is a line for everyone where it stops being par for the course and it becomes personal. I wouldn't even have blamed them for lashing out at such shit.

But this has nothing with mygnrforum today, or the ongoing discussion here, and we shouldn't be lumped in with that.

IMO, he actually skipped several other posts asking about Hard School or the album. So who knows if he really meant Absurd or Hard School. 

Either way, I think it's absolutely a good indication that there are bigger plans. 

I don't think he's reading every single post, probably just responding to the ones that he's quoted in.

He won't say anything more.

He came only for the litho drama and said he may come back to talk about that.

What did he say about the litho drama? I only just now saw the stuff about it.

I'd be amazed if they will film an actual video. Slash hasn't filmed one since 2012 himself. My bet is on a lyric video or some other computeranimated thing, which is a shame because real video songs still get way more views on Youtube automatically. It's just always been that way.

Slash did the WOF lyric video with that porn girl in 2014. Not a full band performance video but he's in it.

Nothing really. He joked about a post related to the lithos and then people started asking questions about new music, so he didn't get to talk about it.

As with all things GN'R, I'll be happy to be wrong. 

I'd love for there to be an HS single on the way, physical or otherwise. I just think that if people read the thread for themselves, they'll see its not exactly cut and dried. 

On a side note, Fernando did say he'd try to stop back by later. So maybe hell clarify then? 

He basically confirmed that there is a plan for a physical release of sorts (and mentioned the whole vinyl pressing plants being backed up). I didn't read it as him confirming it as a single for Absurd or Hardschool, just that some physical media from them was coming (including vinyl).

IMO that could be anything from a single, an EP, an album, or a combination of all of these three.

Would seem odd to go through the pressing plant grind for a just a single, so I'm hoping it's an album plus singles. Wishful thinking, could end up with nothing as we know :P
