MUSIC

So best. Amazon has put up a page for GNR's Chinese Democracy -- check out the release date. It seems optimistic that Axl will be dead by then. (Update: drat, it's already been removed. For those who missed it, the release date was listed as December 31, 2025.)

New Fiona Apple video.

Lost + wikis = Lostpedia

WEALTH

Everyone keeps emailing me Forbes' list of the 15 Wealthiest Fictional Characters to add to the list of lists, but it's not a "of the year" list.

CHRISTMAS

Sarah Silverman: "Give The Jew Girl Toys" (video).

FRIGGIN WEIRD

Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot. And I thought North Dakota was nuts.

Eminem is getting back together with his ex-wife. This guy is so Axl it's sick.

ONLINE

So yeah, CNN.com launched Pipeline, their subscription broadband multi-stream portal. I haven't even looked at it yet.

Google's 10 Golden Rules.

DESIGN

Someone did a parody of Jakob Nielsen's infamous 2000 column about Flash 1996 column about frames and pretty much just supplanted "Ajax" for "Flash" "Frames" -- even the Slashdotters got tricked for a bit.

Uh-oh, lookie what's changed: Macromedia.com.

BLOGGING

Kottke: do you keep a secret site?

The Gawker kids launched another: Consumerist.

You can't compare Eminem with Axl! Axl is an isolated, brooding rocker with the mentality of a jock, and lives in denial of his own irrelevancy; Eminem is an isolated, brooding rapper with the mentality of an emo kid, and won't deny the possibility that he has passed his creative peak.

I've been theorizing that Axl Rose is actually a very abstract social commentator and this whole Chinese Democracy thing is actually a metaphor. It's a political statement. There isn't a real album. He's just saying that he has one on the way, and the gist is that his CD, much like actual its namesake, actual democracy in China, is supposed to be on the way. Just have to wait a bit more. And wait. And wait. Ha ha, it's never coming. See? He's very clever. Kudos, Axl.

RE: Top 10 Classic Rock Box Sets I challenge anyone out there to come up with a more wretched collection of box sets than About's.

Lostopedia has a much nicer ring to it, but unfortunately, its called LostPedia.
