Some of that is this admin’s fault. Some of it isn’t and is due to factors outwith their control either because of decisions made in other countries or because these are historical issues finally coming to bear and they’re the ones holding the can.

Don’t think it’s any more complex than that. At the end of the day - mortgage payments, gas prices and the cost of a bottle of milk are what swing elections in most western countries.

I was wrong. It turns out that platforming election denying conspiracy theorists and backing an unhinged moron in Trump was off putting enough to swing it to the Dems. Actually surprised to be honest. Economic fears be damned.

I really dislike DeSantis and his platform on social and “culture” issues. He has had a great election night (with some caveats) and it does seem like he’s the front runner for the GOP nomination though and IMO the Dems need to put someone more fresh and polished than Biden up in 2024 or he’ll have it in the bag.

That said - I don’t know if his very hard “anti-woke” platform and focus translates well to a national and winning the college educated suburban votes. If he adjusts and moderates a bit though… I think he wins.

When I had it earlier this year it sucked, but only one day stood as really bad. Felt crushed by it for a whole day, can't recall being that sick in a long time.

Other than that, just long 4-6 week recovery back to full normal. Just had another bug recently (not Covid - did a test) and it had 2 bad days but none as bad as Covid. Even this thing though has left me feeling rough for the past week.

It's winter, lots of bugs going around. Get your flu and covid shots - putting the other shit like long Covid to one side, just having catching these things sucks to deal with.

I always forget how OMG is still in play. It's a possibility since they had some of the lyrics on the screen a couple years ago.

It would feel like a troll just like Absurd was.


I'm ok with it....I just hope it isn't next. Save that one as one of the last singles.

They're still on screen when they play YCBM IIRC. It's weird.

I'm really hoping we hear something that is completely new to us in terms of the title, music, and vocals. That would be a pleasant surprise.


Also just realised something about Slash's storytelling that makes no sense. He said they reworked all these songs during the COVID lockdown period... they were soundchecking Hard Skool before lockdown. We have the audio, we have the setlist photos. They also had OMG on the setlist in the 2018.

Y'know, doing 4-8 CD leftovers as small single drops and saving the rest of the CD vault for a CD box or as part of retirement/posthumous releases does make sense. Especially if they intend to actually write a new album.

Yep....this is it. We're rounding 3rd and headed for home.

It sounds like they went through the vault...A-listed a handful of tracks...and the rest have been shit canned. Won't hear any of those until they leak and/or a CD deluxe edition/box set years down the road.

Unless some of the other songs they have Axl wants to keep back for this supposed new record? Hard to know with Slash, he's not the most reliable at remembering what he's worked on it seems.

Sounds like we're getting at least 2-4 more chinse leftovers. Possibly more, but that's just guessing based on Slash not remembering how many they worked on.

#8 Re: Guns N' Roses » Slash Says Guns N’ Roses Have a ‘Couple of Epic’ Songs to Release » 5 weeks ago

Whilst we'll be waiting a long time for it, the most interesting part of what he mentioned is the intent to write a new GN'R record after next Summer's tour.

Whether that ever happens we'll see but for him to bother saying that in an interview I would assume he must have had a conversation about doing that with Axl at some point and Axl was receptive to the idea.

Slash Says Guns N’ Roses Have a ‘Couple of Epic’ Songs to Release

Guns N' Roses still have "a couple of epic" songs left to release, according to Slash.

The top-hatted guitarist called in to Eddie Trunk's Trunk Nation SiriusXM radio show on Wednesday to discuss the band's upcoming plans for touring and releasing music, as well as his desire to record a new album. You can listen to the excerpt below.

"I want to go in and cut a whole brand new record at some point, probably sooner than later," Slash said. "But other than that, we have stuff [that's still] got to come out. So that's gonna be coming out piecemeal over the next… few months or something like that. So that's basically it. We have one more tour left to do next summer, and then that'll free us up to be able to go in and work on a new record."

Guns N' Roses released two new songs, "Absurd" and "Hard Skool," last year, marking the first material to feature singer Axl Rose, bassist Duff McKagan and Slash since their 1994 cover of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil." Both songs date back to the Chinese Democracy sessions and feature newly recorded parts from Slash and McKagan.

Slash said Guns N' Roses reworked several other songs in this fashion during the pandemic. "There's a handful of those songs that we absolutely fixed up and did when we were in lockdown," he explained. "Those have yet to be released, so those are gonna come out. ... We're just gonna put out like one or two songs, and another one or two songs, and I think that's gonna be pretty much all of them. I'm not sure exactly how many we did in total."

The guitarist noted that the band's other unreleased songs "don't have the same kind of amount of history, 'cause I know 'Hard Skool'… goes way back. But there's a couple of epic ones coming out, so I'm excited about that."

Well, Slash did an interview on Eddie Trunk's show today and confirmed the following:

He expects over the next few months GN'R to release 2-3 batches of 1 or 2 songs at a time of reheated CD tracks. He confirmed when speaking about releasing stuff that this wasn't the UYI box stuff and was the reworked CD songs. He wasn't sure himself about how many songs they did, it sounds like it's anywhere from 3-6 more CD leftovers.

He also said that his plan is to start writing a brand new GN'R album after a tour next Summer.

So shit is happening... eventually.
