Just as my interest in when--if ever--Axl Rose's latest incarnation of Guns N' Roses was going to release their ten-years-in-the- works Chinese Democracy was threatening to dissipate into nothingness, I suddenly find myself caring about little else. Why?
Because I love Dr. Pepper, and I will get a free can of it if the album is released by the end of 2008.
Axl, please disregard the stunning lameness of Dr. Pepper's director of marketing's related quote--"We know once [Chinese Democracy is] released, people will refer to it as 'Dr Pepper for the ears' because it will be such a refreshing blend of rich, bold sounds"--focusing instead on the coolness of her name--Jaxie Alt (!)--spare us the coy responses and put out that goddamn record before January 1.
I promise I'll buy it within a decade after I finish my free soda.
