We are getting closer to Christmas and I got some good news for our dear friends at the Chicken Little club. You will have many ways to enjoy the end of the world.
First, you can finally hear the album that was never supposed to be. Chinese Democracy has been finally released, after 14 years of delays! Can you believe it? Dr Pepper couldn’t, and it’s paying a price for its skepticism. Better yet, the Chinese government didn’t seem to like Axl’s rants and it’s calling it “a plot by some in the West to grasp and control the world using democracy as a pawn.” Ooooh, can you spell WW3?
If you are not the GNR type, you can go to the movies and watch Keanu Reeves and his alien buddies try to fix our ways in ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’. I still think they should have hired Al Gore for the part of the messenger of doom (or maybe even the big robot) but hey, maybe that would require the movie to be rated NC17.
Finally, if you want to really experience the real thing as far as holocaust and destruction, I recommend Fallout 3. I am not a hardcore gamer or anything, but this game is really amazing. You can walk through devastated Washington DC, enter the museums (now full of mutants and para-military Groups) and blast the heck out of everyone you want. By the way, guess how the nuclear Armageddon happened? Yup, China baby. They even added some GNR cryptic messages throughout the game. It all makes sense my dear fellow Chickens.
Now, if you are one of the senior members of the club and think we won’t even have Christmas, well, go ahead and do your shopping today! Enjoy while you can my Feathered Friends!
