Wal-Mart possibly to release the most important album of the 21st Century

Axl not looking crazy at all.

Billboard reports that negotiations are underway to release Guns N Roses long-gestating album "Chinese Democracy" (14 years in the making; take that Dr. Dre!) exclusively through a big box retailer, either Wal-Mart or Best Buy.

G'n'R is currently managed by Irving Azoff, who's been an outspoken proponent for these exclusive deals. He released the Eagles "Long Road Out of Eden" through Wal-Mart earlier this year.

As Vulture reminds us, if Wal-Mart wins the bid, that would mean New Yorkers would have to make the long haul to Seacacus, N.J. There's no Wal-Marts in any of the five boroughs.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
