I am pretty sure I see a handsome little pug in that photo there. Nice.

I believe it's actually one of yours. Steve is known for two things: amazing skills with the guitar, and pug thievery... little known fact...

That happens because people get a private message on their facebook account from a friend that says something similar to the "look at you in this vid". So when you click on the link it installs a virus that takes over your facebook and uses your name to send out the same message/virus to your friends until you remove the virus and change your password and it ends up spreading like wildfire. It just happened to one of my friends this week. Luckily he told me about it and warned me I would probably be getting a message from him, which I did and deleted. It's a bunch of shit and facebook really needs to do more to keep this crap from happening. Same with those "OMG I can't believe what this mom actually did to her teenager! Shocking!!" messages you see on peoples pages. Don't ever click on that garbage unless you want the fun of removing a virus.

I am constantly having to explain this shit to friends on my FB page, and yet they still keep doing it.

I have given up.

Let them have their PCs riddled with viruses, I couldnt care less if you are that dumb to keep clicking on those bloody links.

 

Its like those stupid "you can see who viewed your profile" links as well.

You'd think that after all these years, people would realise none of them work and all they do is hack your fucking account, but noooooo!!!!

    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
    • Australia 1 Argentina 1 (Aus 5 Arg 4 on penalties) 🇦🇺 🪃 
    • USA 2, Netherlands 1. (*my prediction)
    • Sorry I meant Dance With the Dead        
    • As much as I love the Synthwave genre, I'm not very adventurous towards it. I generally allow the folks here to steer me in the right direction. I don't think I've listened to Dance of the Dead. 
    • I've been coming around. The cream of the crop are good. Issue I have is for every Lebrock or Midnight there are 20 shite artists. But yeah, I have been buying a bit of the best artists. For me, the best synthwave release of 2022 is Dance of the Dead. It is like the soundtrack to a John Carpenter film never made. It really rocks in places too.
