  1. Cool press is talking about us. Apparently in 1992 some guys arranged a Guns N' Roses concert in an Escobar-ruled Bogotá and had no way to pay for the thing. Still, they went for it and acted like it was all set. There was money being gathered, but arrengements were way behind deadline. Then, in a houllebecqian feature, just as our boys were in Venezuela, there was an attemped coup from Chavez. All airports were closed, and the band was stuck in the country; the Caracas concert was cancelled. That delay allowed our colombian heros to import a stage from Miami and keep the show going. Once the airports were opened and our boy's plane flew over the clouded colombian sky, there were 5000 fans waiting for them at the Bogotá airport. There was no sight of police arround, so the vans had to manage their way throw the crowd. Eventually some overly excited fans jumped over the vans and one of the security men had to pull his revolver and and shoot up a couple of times. Just to keep things calm, you know how it is. Finally they arrive at the hotel, where they are harassed, maybe sexually harassed, by a few fans among the 500 who were esperando a los Guns N' Roses. Apparently already completely wasted, the gunners, as they are called here, go to the Chispas Bar, where they finish their night. At the same time, surrounded by an ever-growing windstorm, the main character, a local producer, goes to the concert venue only to find out that their hard earned stage had collapsed. There were two dates. They cancel one and decide to try to pull off at least one, the first (29 Nov 1992). It's not clear what was done regarding the tickets sold for the second date (Nov 30 1992). I don't know if my spanish fails at this moment or if they indeed don't mention it. Anyway, the producers go to the Chispas Bar where they talk to the Guns N' Roses manager, and they arrange that the band will get 45k for the concert cancelled. They agree. Ok, now the american embassy is involved. I don't know what's going on. There's a massive cloud above the stadium, but still there are angry fans outside; la horda. The US embassy and the producers are meeting at the actual stadium, where the band is playing? This is brilliant. Then, our hero says fuck it, or, as precisely, "me importa un culo lo que estamos hablando aquí." And they'll do the concert. It didn't say how they fixed the stage, but Guns N' Roses is playing now; screw the US embassy. Still, it was hell surrounding the stadium. Police was now heavy, dealing with the many hordas that gathered around the concert. Apparently the second sold out date issue wasn't that much solved. The colonel responsible for the operation decided at one point to go on one of the small tanks to check on how the whole thing was going; the huge cloud breaks. After going around the stadium and seeing all the angry GNR fans fighting the police in order to enter the show, the colonel has a heart attack. Inside the tank, as we reach the end of the concert and November Rain starts playing, the man's own heart, filled by God knows what, attacked him and got him killed immediately. November Rain goes on, and it starts pouring raining. It was the best special effects they could ask for, as the producer says it. He was smoking marijuana and drinking Jägermeister with another colonel and a fellow producer at his side. Although it was mayhem ouside, the concert was going well. As the song ends, though, apparently Axl talks to Slash on the microphone about how they'll get electrecuted; there are some little puddles around already . The producer leaves the VIP cabin and rushes to the stage. It's not a joke, they get to get off the stage indeed. Axl says "Tranquilos. No nos vamos, ja volvemos." Don't worry. We won't leave, we'll be back. Mid the confusion, our hero notices that though the rain is getting lighter, the GNR crew is pulling the plugs and actually started to load. The producer sees that and questions them right away, quite agressively given such a dishonest move. The GNR crew tries to outtalk him, but he has a fair amount of colombian workers, among security and stage assemblers, behind his back. There's a showdown. The colombian producer tries to knock the GNR representative with a header . "It's not raining anymore and they haven't played Sweet Child O' Mine and Knocking On Heaven's Door, motherfucker." Still, Guns N' Roses leaves. Their wounded man calls for back up, and they manage to leave in their vans. The rain was completely gone, it was a perfect weather to fly. Thing is, one of the associates paying for the concert was an Air Force captain and warned the airport control tower that the Guns N' Roses plane was filled with drugs. Not only the plane though, Guns N' Roses themselves were filled with drugs. They were asked to stop the plane so the police could seize whatever illegal substance they could find on board. At 3 AM, the air was now completely dry, and the colombian DEA finally arrived at their jet, and what the story says, and the producer has quite a laugh at, is that they put them throw a rigid intimate survey, with full body check, anal cheek spreads and all. That's the story of this video.
  2. Wasted is right. This is joke is not far-fetched. That's why John Lennon got killed.
  3. Definetly. Which is why Axl is a genius if he is behind the whole thing and it's necessary to understand the whole scope of his work. And you guys thinking he was a musician.
  4. Defo. I think it's a sure thing that there's gonna be a new Guns N' Roses album. Eventually. I know we like to pretend that there won't be one, it's a funny joke and all, but like, come on. They'll shit an album out, yes they will. By 2020 I bet, if anyone wants to bet. And that's because they are a little clever. And I think they are a little more clever than just a little, and they will eventually agree, if they haven't done it already, that more than need Izzy back, maybe they want it. I hope, and I believe Axl and Slash are serious about a new Guns N' Roses album. And I don't mean serious by actually doing, because of course they will, I mean serious as in a good Guns N' Roses record. This is all just couple's fight. As if Izzy was so offended by their offer, or if they just couldn't stand each other. They are probably over it, and I don't think either that they would give the thing a shot without giving Izzy a call.
  5. Let's get specific - how was MSL involved, and in what exactly? And then, why... I mean, what would even be the point of maintaing some shit like that? It affects a ridiculous amount of people, in which we are involved. Like, is Axl behind everyone of those leaks, as in MSL was just doing that job, and that's where it ends, or was even all that GNR Truth shit somehow financed by Team Brazil too? Not only money-wise I mean, but like, where did that audio of Axl playing piano come from? I know I've seen someone at mygina saying Beta simply sends that shit to some whomever around who likes to pretend to be somewhat involved. I believe that to be true, considering Beta has called me and contacted an amateur vechile like Axl Rose Fã Clube many times. I get that point that they don't really get the actual size of what they're supposed to be doing, but specifically with MSL, it seems to be more than just naievety or stupidness. It's clear that there has been a very deceiving agenda going on.
  6. I heard someone say once that back in the day in Italy, ideally they would cook with sea water. So yeah, salt the shit out of your pasta water.
  7. I feel you, Miser. Careful with the alcohol.
  8. RAW themed Mafia? Holy shit, I should have got in.
  9. "I can't believe you're still posting on MyGNR Forum".
  10. I'm not in any way trying to censor him. I'm just stating that he is a dumbass. Big difference. I'd never ask him to stop, as his stupidity is usually very amusing.
  11. If his abysmal political views are any indication, he is definetly brazilian.
  12. I've been in Brazil for over an year now, and am making plans to leave again. I miss the european hashish.
  13. Fortus said they'll be working on a new album, haven't you heard?!
  14. No. It's the image of Axl and Slash together + marketing. None of the live experiences with GNR you mentioned were even advertised as staging a something along the lines of a reunion. And indeed, none of those were Slash, but you need Axl too. To have that huge machine you need both of them - Duff is an extra. I don't know if it would be just as big without him, because I believe he is supposed to make it feel like - and it does come out kind of this way - that it's indeed a GNR reunion and not just Axl and Slash getting back together - or them joining Axl's band. But yeah, it's just a visual thing, a cultural reinforcement massively advertised with high level marketing. Nothing but a musical expression of the cultural revisionism the west has been experiencing for the last few years. It's like if the world had indeed ended in 2012 and since them we have been just remembering all the stuff we had, entering a gradually more bizarre scenario in which history is stuck and all we can do when we try to move forward is to rehash or retell our past glorys. Sure, the concert is good and it last 3 hours, but you've already heard Sweet Child O' Mine a brazilian times man, and guess what, it ends the same every time. Everyone is just there to see Axl and Slash together, so it feels like back when the world still hadn't ended and everything was great.
  15. Only listening to the song now. Pretty cool, I guess it could work. I just don't understand... why? Why this cover, why the fuck would Ringo jr. play with them? This band makes no sense.
  16. I love breakfast food, just not in the morning. At the uni there's not so much of breakfast food around, there's just "free" lunch and dinner, so when I go to my parent's, like now, I tend to eat shittons of bread + butter and milk + chocolate every night. It's the ugliest munchies, usually at 4 am. In the morning I enjoy just drinking coffee and to smoke a cigarette. Maybe a bread. But that's usually because I ate so much before going to bed - I just feel to need to eat again by lunch.

    leaks??

    Remember when there was this discussion if the new song Light My Fire was brand new or a Doors cover? I wonder how much time we have spent here talking about shit that doesn't even exist. I guess this is not a far-fetched explanation for the GNR online community phenomenon, or one of the explanations, at least - we're united by faith. Faith in an album that will never come out. Oh, wait, they already released it? 10 years ago? Doesn't feel right, I want the 2nd vol now. Faith in a reunion that will never happen. OH WHAT?! Nah, come on. I want the proper one. Faith, finally, that Axl can still sing like he used to. BUT HE ALREADY DID THAT TOO, MAYBE EVEN BETTER. Thanks Axl, for ruining ruined GNR.
  18. Oh, defo. Everyone knows it's South America and not Japan where people commit suicide for the dumbest of reasons.
