    Check out them flying pigs

    I thought Axl disappeared up his own arse years ago, the mind boggles, never thought Chinese Democracy would actually be released. As it goes, I couldn't care less about that, but maybe it's time to pre-order Duke Nukem Forever, while the universe is in the mood for unlikely occurrences.

    "a bit crap really"

    No! Really? Wow, that would be unexpected. Next you'll tell us that Axl is actually "a bit of a twat"!

    Lies & Appetite were good. Nay, they were beyond good. Use Your Illusion 1 & 2 were... ok, a mixed bag. Spaghetti Incident was, to be polite, a fraying Netto carrier bag, full of sloppy dog turds. Not even polished ones.

    But I don't doubt the sales will be massive from the 30-somethings desperate to relive their youth and the teenagers wanting to know what all the fuss is about. Which means Guns'n'Roses (these days, Axl & whatever session musicians are hungry enough to put up with him...) will be touring again. Dammit.

    "beer-stained mitts"?

    Shandy-stained mitts, surely?

    Best case scenario, snakebite 'n black stained mitts for the more elderly fans.

    Hmm, having said that, I guess all those spotty teenagers have grown up a bit now. Best batten down the hatches.

    It's not really GnR any more is it

    Considering it's only Twatty Rose from the original GnR I fail to see the connection really - okay he swindled the name from the rest of the band but it's just NOT going to be the same without Slash and Co. Rose won't see a penny of my money and I bet many others feel the same.

    Snakebite 'n Black? That was only for the girls when I was younger (not spotty though).. proper Snakebites or Newcastle Brown Ale was the order of the day followed by copious JD ;)

    Paris 'cause she could probably put together a better band.

    Again ...

    Once the material is digitized, and your security isn't up to par, it's out there.

    Worms out of can means faggedaboudit. Or was that cats out of bag.

    Whatever. Now they are crying over spilt milk.

    Note: I am NOT advocating piracy. I AM advocating reality.

    If you allow your shit out on teh IntraWebs, it's out.

    Don't want it out in teh intertubes? Learn what "security" means in this context.

    End of discussion.
