Chinese Effin' Democracy: Almost Here?


Does anybody care? Seriously, Guns 'n Roses had one good album and then a slew of overblown bulltshit ones, one of which featured the indulgent, melodramatic monstrosity "November Rain," one of my least favorite songs of all time. Just to backtrack a little for those who haven't been keeping up the earth-shattering news regarding GnR and Dr. Pepper:


The soft drink company said they would give everyone in America a free Dr. Pepper if Guns 'n Roses deliver Chinese Democracy some time in 2008. That's pretty much it. And oh yeah, GnR frontman/enormous jerkoff Axl Rose apparently hired some new top-notch managing team to, I don't know, motivate him, I guess, though I would think if he really wanted to share CD with the world he would have done so some time in the last 13 years. This is where I'm supposed to make a joke about how Chinese democracy may actually arrive before Chinese Democracy...but I'm not gonna ;)

I don't even like Dr. Pepper, so there really isn't any upside of any sort. And how exactly is Dr. Pepper going to efficiently and accurately distribute that many sodas? Do prisoners get a soda? How about illegal immigrants? Cans or bottles? Will Sierra Mist follow suit and offer a soda to every American if Raekwon finally releases Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II? So many questions....

But seriously how cool would it be if Sierra Mist did that.

I'm hoping Mr. Pibb will do a similar stunt if we get a release proper of Songs From the Black Hole. Or if Rivers ever shaves that creepy mustache...
