Happy Birthday, Duff McKagan!

Michael “Duff” McKagan of (deep breath) Guns ‘N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver, Loaded and Jane’s Addiction was born on this day, February 5th in 1964! Happy Birthday, Duff!

Top 10 Random Thoughts of The Day

In no particular order, as is the nature of things labeled as random.

  1. Duff McKagan has apparently left Jane’s Addiction. I had no idea Duff McKagan had ever joined Jane’s Addiction.
  2. People who ride their bikes on the sidewalk are complete idiots.
  3. Today I felt that 4:30 PM was too late to see a movie that’s playing at a theater farther away from my apartment than a 10-minute walk.
  4. Even though it’s past Labor Day, I am probably still going to wear my linen pants a few more times.
  5. It feels good to throw away stuff that you are no longer using , especially when it is ugly, broken or doesn’t fit anymore.
  6. “4 Chan”: What the hell is that, anyway?
  7. I finally saw Inception yesterday. It is so nice to see that Cillian Murphy has finally grown into his oddly-shaped face.
  8. Wow, what the heck is going on with the Google logo today anyway? Is it the anniversary of the day they invented the Milton Bradley game Twister or the design for the Wonder Bread wrapper? Take a look at it and tell me what you think is going on
  9. The next season of Survivor debuts on September 15th. I am excited about that as long as there is absolutely no way for them to bring back Russell again. Because seriously, I hate that guy.
  10. Every day I wonder why this one particular post, Happy Birthday, Jim Morrison, is always the most popular post on this blog. Today was no exception.

Guns N’ Roses Release Appetite for Destruction

Appetite Cover
“My Way, Your Way, Anything Goes Tonight.”

On this Date, July 21st in 1987: Guns N’ Roses released their landmark debut album Appetite for Destruction, which would later spend five weeks on top of the Billboard 200 album chart. As of September 2008 the album is certified 18 times platinum. The band Guns N’ Roses in their original line-up – Axl, Slash, Duff, Steven and Izzy – were inarguable the greatest hard rock band of that era. The fact that Axl Rose could and would willingly destroy that band is proof enough to me that the man is mentally ill.
