chinese democracy

I never cared about Guns n' Roses before, so why should I now? Except I thought everyone did, so I played the damn thing. Whoops, it's pretty great! So why won't anyone I want to talk about it with play it? Whoops, it turns out no one cares about it at all. The few critics I know who have claim they excised their "morbid curiosity" and fled. Something about lyrics or processed production. I have no idea what people expect from a Guns n' Roses record if not this. Sensationalism farted through a megaphone of excess no one over 18 thinks is cool. I see Chuck Klosterman's happy.

Perf Spot featured KOTJ today (scroll a tad) and posted my apocalyptic Sarah Palin Mix from last week in an awesome streaming-player format, so you can listen to the sad sounds at work without having to download to your 'puter.
