UPDATE: Axl Rose is ‘very happy’ about Dr. Pepper’s Guns N’ Roses pledge

Here is an update from a previous story I reported on. FTA:

Rose said he was “surprised and very happy” about the offer, but denied the record label or himself were involved in the pledge.

If this ends up being true and it happens, maybe it will be the swift kick in the pants Axl needs in order to get that dang album out. It’s been too long since the last one!

Read the article.

Free Dr. Pepper for everyone in America!*

* If Axl Rose releases the long-awaited new G&R album ‘Chinese Democracy’ in 2008.

Really? Yes, really. From the article:

In an unprecedented show of solidarity with Axl, everyone in America, except estranged GNR guitarists Slash and Buckethead, will receive a free can of Dr Pepper if the album ships some time — anytime! — in 2008. Dr Pepper supports Axl, and fully understands that sometimes you have to make it through the jungle before you get it right.

Being that this is from cnn.com, I am assuming it’s true. I guess someone high up at Dr. Pepper is a huge GNR fan. I am looking forward to the new cd AND the free Dr. Pepper. Come on Axl, what are you waiting for??

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl For President!

Foo Fighters front man and ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl throws his hat into the ring to run for President of the United States. This is a pretty humorous read. FTA:

On what will bring America together: “I think that what the country needs now is a good, smoky barbecue—family style, at least once a week, winter months included. It’s important that people bring it back to cooking over the fire as a family unit. You know what I do when I sit around a grill with my family? I talk. We talk. It’s something about that hickory smoke that brings my family together—and friends. And that’s where I really get to share and learn with my family and fellow Americans. It’s around that grill. It’s two beers, it’s three beers, it’s four beers, it’s 10 beers. This is what America needs—beer, and barbecue. It’s the red, white and barbecue.”

Like Hot Wings? Teriyakular will blow your mind

Teriyakular – A mixture of 2 flavors of Hot Wings at Zaxby’s – “Teriyaki” and “Nuclear

Every Tuesday, my dad and I have dinner at Zaxby’s.  Imagine a more upscale Chick Fil A, and you have Zaxby’s.  Anyway, we always split a 10-piece wing plate as a nice compliment to our salads (it balances each other out or something).  When ordering, we always ask for a mix of Nuclear and Teriyaki.  Not “5 and 5 of each”, but the sauces mixed and dumped over the wings.  This gives you a flavor unlike any other.

What’s that, you say?  No Zaxby’s where you live?  That’s ok.  Basically, you take a teriyaki wing sauce and mix it with a hot wing sauce, and Voila.  Teriyakular. Or “Nucleaki”.  Either way, it is a winner.
