Something very, very exciting is happening this weekend

Chinese Democracy is being released. For reals. This Sunday. At Best Buy.

I am planning to buy it and review it. Until then, tide yourself over with these links:

1. Stream it on myspace
2. Read Chuck Klosterman's hilarious review. He liked it. I liked his opening: "Reviewing Chinese Democracy is not like reviewing music. It's more like reviewing a unicorn."
3. Read the NYT review. They didn't like it so much.

4. (UPDATE!) Dr. Pepper is making good on its promise to give away free soda to everyone in America if Chinese Democracy actually gets released in 2008. "We never thought this day would come," Tony Jacobs, Dr Pepper's vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "But now that it's here, all we can say is: The Dr Pepper's on us." Get your coupon on this Sunday only.

The radio station up here has played a good chunk of it already and I am still on the fence. It won't stop me from buying it though. I think it is one that you have to listen to a few times to really enjoy it. A local store is selling them here tomorrow.

This is unrelated, but Eileen, have you seen this?

Chris- I just discovered that site yesterday, when someone sent me a link of the shopping cart fail.
So funny!
