My New Favorite Song This Week

This weeks favorite song is from Scarlett Johansson. Yes, that Scarlett Johansson. Many actresses have tried "singing" in the past (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alyssa Milano) but this is actually good. Here is Falling Down.

Wow. That was pretty good. She's also in one of my favorite movies: Lost in Translation. I think I'm in love.

By the way, the new GnR album "drops" in late November. Let's hope it's as good as "The Spaghetti Incident." Take that one to heart.

November, yeah right. I heard that before

Check it out Mike628:

More than a decade after its conception, Guns N' Roses' "Chinese Democracy" will finally see the light of day before year's end, sources close to the situation confirm to Billboard. As first reported here, the set will be a Best Buy exclusive and will be available Sunday, Nov. 23, rather than the usual Tuesday.

Beyond enticing pre-Thanksgiving shoppers, the move is tied to the structure of Best Buy's sales week, which runs from Sunday to Saturday. As such, "Chinese Democracy" would not be eligible to chart on The Billboard 200 until the week of Dec. 1, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In the run-up to release date, album track "Shackler's Revenge" will debut in the video game "Rock Band 2," while a portion of "If the World" is playing over the end credits in the new Leonardo DiCaprio/Russell Crowe film "Body of Lies."

In addition, GNR's seminal 1987 debut, "Appetite for Destruction," will be reissued on vinyl on Oct. 28 via Interscope.

The band's last new studio albums were the simultaneously released "Use Your Illusion I" and "II" in September 1991. A covers set, "The Spaghetti Incident?," followed in 1993, and featured some of the last GNR recordings from original guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan.

This spring, soft drink manufacturer Dr Pepper offered to send a free can of the beverage to "everyone in America" (excluding ex-GNR members Slash and Buckethead) if "Chinese Democracy" were to arrive anytime during the calendar year 2008.

"We're waiting to hear about 'Chinese Democracy' just like all the other GNR fans," Dr Pepper VP of marketing Tony Jacobs tells Billboard. "But if the rumors are true, we're putting the Dr Pepper on ice."

How did a post about the beautiful Scarlett Johansson turn into a GnR comment section? What year is it, 1989? I don't care if the new album "drops" in November or not. My guess will be not. Joseph, don't believe everything you read on the internet. Only about 99.9% of it is true. Even the intellgent readers of TIGO are voting that it's not going to happen

Joseph said...

You know why I believe it's finally going to happen? Listen:

'Cause nothin' lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

So you see laclips, "nothing lasts forever," and for too long the world has been without GnR. And seriously, "we both know hearts can change," so it shouldn't surprise you that Axl is ready to drop this album. And yes, "it's hard to hold a candle / in the cold November Rain," but laclips, it's not impossible. Hope is a wonderful thing. Maybe the best thing.

That last comment was the gayest thing I ever read

If being hopeful is a "gay" thing, then find me a bag full of dicks to suck. Uh, nevermind.
