Chinese Non-ocracy

This morning, I woke up early and went to Best Buy to see what mobs turned out for the 13-years-in-the-making Chinese Democracy. Guess what? Nobody was there. First off, it was nearly impossible to find the display housing the LP and CD versions of the fabled album (below). Second, the customers at my local Queens branch, whose CD section has shrunk by half over the past five years, were more interested in the "first time we've ever discounted MacBooks." Uh, yeah. In the time I was there, I saw only one other person go up to the stand. Judging from the first few minutes, Axl may have his work cut out for him after all. Then again, maybe most GN'R fans are nursing their hangovers right now. (BTW, don't forget to get your free Dr. Pepper.)
