Given that the very first song (the title track) really does seem to be a hymn to the potential for political change in China — and rhymes “masturbation” with “rule a nation” in a verse also derisively mentioning “your iron fist” — I think Axl must have written the album for my G N’ R-loving Chinese-language professor friend Chris, which is only right [UPDATE 11/24/08: And Beijing has noticed, the tyrannical bastards, as noted on Drudge -- I haven't been this proud of American pop culture since Kim Jong-Il condemned Team America].
Three tracks so far, and so far we’re rockin’. “Now ah know you betta [GUITAR]…” Yeah.
Chris also shares the recent enthusiasm for locally-grown foods, as it happens, and I have a volunteer to argue against that idea at our next Lolita Bar Debate (Wed., Dec. 3 at 8pm), so if you, dear reader, want to defend it — and can get to Manhattan on your own — let me know before someone else steps up [UPDATE: Got him!].
