Star Trek Movie - New Spock

Live Long And Prosper

if you haven't seen the trailers for the new StarTrek movie (in QuickTime format), do yourself a favor and get over there pronto. Be sure to watch "Trailer 1" first... and bask in the grizzled sturdy tone of the voice over at the end. The official website has even more goodies plus a trailer for those who don't have Quick Time.

Live Wrong And Prosper

In case you didn't know, Chinese Democracy, the new/old joint from "Guns N Roses" is available for streaming in its entirety on the GnR MySpace page. I've listened to it a grand total of 1 times, any my initial impression is that it sounds more like Queensryche than classic Guns. That's not to say it's bad, I like Queensryche infinitely more than I like Guns N Roses. The production is expansive, songs are creative and Axl sounds awesome. My only gripe is the lack of 'train going off its tracks', 'jalopy going over a cliff' rawness that made Guns what it was. Track 8 - "Scraped" - gets the closest, but trading Sunset Strip swagger for the poignant beauty of "Prostitute" more than makes up for it.

With GnR release day imminent - 11/23/08 only at BestBuy - it's worth repeating that Dr. Pepper is making good on its threat/promise to give away 1 20oz'r free to everybody in the United States (except Slash & Buckethead) if Chinese Democracy is released on 2008.

On 11/23/2008, go to DrPepper.com, register your info and they'll send you a coupon. It's so easy.
