Folk Music

The last band I talked about (albeit 8 months ago!!) was The Mars Volta, and the genre of music that has gripped me of recent could not be any further away from the psychedelic rock of Omar and Cedric. I used to think of Folk as dainty music that was enjoyed by the 50+ whilst they landscaped a rockery in their garden. Boring. I've since realised that folk music entails all the ethos of punk and can be performed more energetically than any of the new metal garbage knocking around. A case in

2 Months Have Passed

Since I last made an entry or even a post on GR.net. The reason is not that I have turned my back on GR.net or anything like that, it is simply because I have been unable to use the Internet regularly.

Whether this is because there isn't any issues with the new skin, or simply because people just haven't bothered to report them is yet to be seen. The main reason I am posting this entry is just to highlight a point I made yesterday. Please, please, plea

Injection

As you are most probably aware, the forums have been blessed with a new skin, that comes in both old skool Ghost Recon green and another that is Advanced Warfighter bluey/turquoise. I hope that you like the new skins, and I also hope you appreciate the skin options that we have to offer here. One element of the forums that we were not pleased about (cosmetically) was the blog component. Rocky, and the other members of staff felt that the blog looked too similar to the rest of the forum.
