Where do we go?

So recently I've learned that a lot of people don't believe Axl Rose was ever hot. ARE YOU KIDDING ME.



The guitar solo? Watch that fucker move! If you can get through the entire second half of this video without hanging up your hipster cred long enough to call a fine piece of ass when you see it, WELLLL HAVE FUN IN LIFE, DICKHEAD!

P.S. A few weeks ago I got home from an early-morning shift feeling all punk rock and decided to stick it to the man by having a salad and a whole bottle of wine for brunch. I was blowing tunes into an empty bottle by noon, and then I started watching Guns N' Roses videos and getting really worked up, at which point I wrote this entry and saved it as a draft (probably on accident) and totally forgot about it until just now. Hahaha. That was a great day.

I love you for this. I had a big crush on Axl when I was 13. Docs with white socks and short, white cycling shorts? Genius.

I had a big crush on Axl when I was 22. I got a leather jacket off of eBay and everything, and I listened to Welcome to the Jungle so many times my roommate learned the words, and I still take it as a huge magnificent omen if I hear it playing as I head into the night. Because then I'm like HO SHIT TONIGHT IS READY TO PARTY

Haha! *That's* why recent parties haven't been up to scratch.

"My Michelle" is my karaoke centrepiece. Always :-)

Hanging up the hipster cred is one of my favorite activities. I owned Use Your Illusion, and fondly remember November Rain. RIP Shannon Hoon.

ok I don't know you but I think I love you. This totally reminds me of the time (not tooo long ago) when I broke my room mate's broom, a light fixture and destroyed a couch watching the video for 'please don't go". 70's AC/DC....I'm gonna start a blog soon. In Japanese. Jebus save me. I'll post the link and you can laugh at me. fun.

So I just found your blog today, and because I'm sick and had nothing else to do and read the whole thing.
I really enjoyed it and was extremely entertained. I went to Japan for a couple of weeks in Sept. and miss it everyday and can't wait to go back. Your blog makes me miss it even more.

selena - omg his sunglasses in the november rain video. i love the don't cry video first for slash's exploding-rebirth guitar solo and second for the blatant shameless 80-s macho misogyny leading up to it. oh hair bands

Beth said...

Speaking of Slash, my uncle was his vet and took care of his snake. True story.
