It's uninspired, overdone, all-Axl-all-the-time. Where's Izzy?  
For the record, I am more interested in my free Dr. Pepper than I am in owning the album.

For those keeping score, theshapka and helpimarock tied for first place in notifying me about this latest newsflash from Axl and his merry men. Hillary (theshapka) also provided helpful instructions:
Dr Pepper is ready to give out free soda coupons to every American when the album releases on Nov. 23, 2008. If you're out to get a free Dr Pepper just follow these simple steps:

Wait, I had this information up on my blog five minutes after the single was announced and two minutes after Dr. Pepper sent out their press release.

Did these other dudes travel back in time or something?

Nope. I'm just really slow to update my livejournal.

Hillary emailed me Perez Hilton's entry on 10/22. You, unfortunately, failed to make a personal delivery of the newsflash, and I have not been keeping up with my f-list.

So yeah, I guess I just operate in alternate time. Or something. ;)

If I had your email you would have been the first to know. After all you were the first person I thought of.

I realized this morning that I am old. I am in love with "young Axl" and I have no idea who this strange, puffy new creature is.

That's how I feel when I see pictures of Jenna Jameson lately.

Oooh ouch, but the bun in the oven is making her look better, dont you think?
bart_calendarbart_calendar on October 25th, 2008 01:18 pm (UTC)
Her face makes me think she did just a tad too much cocaine over the years.

I want Diet, does anyone know if this can be done?
the Shapkatheshapka on October 27th, 2008 08:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm with you on that.

hmmm.. we sell Dr Pepper down here... I wonder if the store accepts coupons...
lagizmalagizma on October 26th, 2008 12:04 pm (UTC)
I would admire you forever if you posted a picture drinking Dr Pepper on Nov 23. :)

teh store doesn't normally accept coupons but I have spoken to the manager and he has agreed to make an exception in this case! I probably won't get it until Dec/Jan though.

Ok, that's over then; if even Giz feels this way, Axl has nothing left to live for.

Sad for him, isn't it?

The highlight of my day was laughing my ass off at this:
On April 1, 2003, The Offspring announced that they would be naming their upcoming album Chinese Democrazy (You Snooze, You Lose). The Offspring's lead singer Dexter Holland elaborated, "You snooze, you lose. Axl ripped off my braids, I ripped off his album title." However, it turned out to be an April Fools' joke and the Offspring album was eventually released under the title Splinter instead.

How awesome is that! There were some great April Fools' jokes this year on thar interwebs.

Oh, so now I know who to blame for the silly-assed braids.

I think I last cared in 1994. While I am the last person to criticize professionalism in anyone else, given my lifelong fight against the very concept, there's gotta be a line. And this one got crossed a looooooooooooooong time ago.
