I joined a facebook group called "What's spinning (on your turntable)"
The whole point of this group is to post pictures of whatever record you are listening to at the moment. In theory it creates discussion about music, but it is mostly just people posting there pictures and other people liking the pictures, not much discussion comes out of it.
I figured this forum will probably be a better place for such a discussion. If something of the sort already exists, I apologize for not looking, and any mod can feel free to merge or delete this post.

Well here is another loaded question for you, a question I only ask because I have an answer for it myself, and because it is one of my favorite topics of conversation, but there are few people I can converse with about it.
"The problem with GnR is that they suck. The songs suck. Even when they were in their prime they sucked. Remnants of an era of misogynistic sunset strip garbage. Bros who dressed like girls but still acted like high school jocks.
The only thing that competes with Side A of 1999 for me right now is Side A of The Tyranny of Distance, but the issue that keeps it in second is that on every release except the vinyl, Timorous Me comes before Stove by a Whale. On the vinyl, Stove is first, and thus, on A, while Timorous Me opens up the flip side.
My house was an Elton house growing up, so I have had the pleasure of his music for over two decades. My first CD was an Elton John comp that McDonald's was selling when I was like 6 or 7. I believe it had an all yellow booklet.
This copy of Yellow Brick Road was among the first used records I bought. It's an original pressing, it was $18 and should have probably been twice that given how good it (still) sounds.
