  1. Why is everyone in Axl's camp a sycophant>
  2. Not looking for sympathy it's just outside of my sister and my girlfriend's mom I havent told anyone this. Last month my mother mentioned she had a small tumor on her liver. For background, she had Hepatitis C and got a transplant in 2013. When she's had the transplant her original liver already had cancer. It's been and up and down ride ever since. She takes anti-rejection drugs and those have damaged her kidneys badly now so she's now also on a kidney transplant list. She's had small tumors on the liver before. And usually they've been blasted off. And another would come and be blasted off. It kinda become routine. She got diagnosed with the Hep C when I was 14. Got I think weekly injections of Interferon for a year. Lost her hair. Interferon Is basically chemo. She got worse and worse as the years progressed until she was no longer coherent in 2013 because of the buildup of ammonia in her brain. There was an episode one day where she didn't know where she was. Only time I cried about it. Present, they detected a tumor about a month ago and she didn't tell me any further details until a few days ago. It can't be blasted or removed surgically because it's in the "dome" of the liver, right underneath her lung. To remove the cancer they'd have to take too much liver tissue. She's supposed to begin radiation therapy once a week starting May 2nd, and she is on the transplant list for another liver besides the kidney transplant list. When she used to have medical issues i felt like everything wouldn't work out. I don't feel that now. I feel all over the place mentally veering from making grandiose plans to compulsively spending to drifting to sad thoughts to numbness. I'm not myself. Apologies. I just wanted to share it with you. Not for attention or sympathy.
  3. Say you had a choice. Myself, I'd like to die around 67, 68. One of two ways. Either with emphysema, or with a bullet to the bullet of the head, like JFK or like the way Tony bought it in the Sopranos. I mean think about it, in order to get murdered in such a way, you gotta be somewhat important, you know? One to the back of the head, peaceful for you, you never know what hit you.

    How anti-white is Peele's Twilight Zone, and do any episodes have white leads? Asking because he says he'll never cast white leads in any of his movies.

    Rewatching the Sopranos like a mad man pumped for the movie. Also binged Sabrina with the girlfriend. A little cheesy and some SJW elements, but not that bad a show. Gotta catch up on a lot of others.
  6. Happy Easter everyone :)
  7. Post here lesser known ditties (any genre) from the 70s that you enjoy http://youtube.com/watch?v=/aH4ZhDaWmpo http://youtube.com/watch?v=/RMONGMDEerI
  8. No idea actually. I didn't actually invite anyone since I've been banned from mygnr for a while now.
  9. Wouldn't have come out at all if Mick and Keith had had their way. The Stones do not own ANY rights to any songs produced prior to 1970 due to a deal they made with their then manager, Andrew Loog Oldham. They were young and stupid and didn't read the fine print. He owns all their recordings including live shows prior to 1970 (even songs that were recorded prior to 1970, but not released until AFTER 1970, like Brown Sugar [recorded in 1969] belong to him). Not missing notes here, just playing in standard tuning as opposed to Open G. Also Brian's guitar is mixed low akin to the way Izzy's was during the UYI tour, which also doesn't help the sound. They wanted to redo the concert at the Roman Coliseum in the Spring of 1969 but they weren't allowed.
  10. The Stones were mainly insecure about being upstaged by The Who, who were fresh off the road and put on a well oiled, terrific performance. The Stones hadn't performed live outside of an awards show six months earlier in a year and a half and were rusty. Plus, they went on last, and because it was meant as a film, they did up to 12 takes of each song until they got the perfect "take" for each track, and they didn't go on to begin with until 3am. So you had a band that hadn't performed in a year with one sickly/disinterested member, a band that was exhausted from doing the same songs over and over again, and who didn't even start until the middle of the night. Even still, I think they put on a good performance considering:
  11. Remember the video we discussed of him performing in '95? One of the last performances before his death? It was clear as day that he was in very bad shape and it doesn't seem like there was all that much effort put into helping him or at least, monitoring him. It wasn't a case like Kurt where there weren't all these warning signs besides behavior. He legitimately looked like a person on death's door besides IIRC od'ing already once or twice and no one was keeping an eye on him. It's very sad. And from what I'm reading here, it seems like his death kinda went unnoticed at the time? Making it even more sad.
  12. The Disney films have kinda made me dislike Star Wars as a whole, outside of the prequels, in that the sequels rendered the original movies utterly pointless. Every victory won in those films, every sacrifice, everything was all in vain at this point. Even Darth Vader redeeming himself by killing the Emperor has been undone. What a crock of shit.
  13. Well apparently according to Carmella, when they were teenagers Tony was the 'rapscallion, the jokester, the class clown" and that's what drew her to him. Underneath it maybe he was struggling with depression. But he wasn't the mopey, miserable little prick that AJ was, at least according to Carmella. Pussy and Chris both remark how at one time, Tony was one of the most laid back guys on Earth.
  14. I've seen clips. I'm not denying he can be scary but the original actor had a certain authentic scariness, a sleaziness to him, I mean watch the flashbacks:
  15. Also need to bear in mind that they're basing how Tony looked and dressed in the 70s on how Gandolfini did. They did the same thing in the S5 flashback to 1976: Tony is slim, with Welcome Back Kotter hair, dressed in baseball clothes. That's how Gandolfini looked to a T when he was a teen.
  16. Can you give me some examples? Johnny's an important character to the mythology of the series in that he literally made Tony who he was. Tony copies his father down to even his fashion sense. He gave Tony his first murder contract when T was 22. Bernthal just looks too...nice.
  17. My one worry is Bernthal won't do a good job as Johnny. He doesn't look like a wiseguy, especially compared to the original guy who played him http://ibb.co/MhR2ZrC http://ibb.co/ZYXHvbQ
  18. He gonna be made into a woman by Bubba.
  19. It's at least good to know Assange will spend the rest of his life in living hell.
  20. Believing that a government should exist, and that this is not the Stone Age, is a far leap from endorsing genocide. As if there would be no war if no laws existed. Anarchy is an ethical abomination, and it is such a failure that it has been utterly rejected and left on the ant heap of history.
