I'm Psychic? Yeah, Right.

Poking around some old posts on here I came across this one, which predicted that a supposed release date for Guns N' Roses next album, Chinese Democracy, would come and go without the album actually appearing. Here we are in December and I was right. But it's in no way evidence I have precognative abilities. You didn't need to be psychic to guess that an album that has given multiple release dates, none of which it has met, isn't likely to come out when advertised. Reportedly sessions for the album have cost 13 million bucks, meaning the album will have to sell at least 13 million copies, if not more, to even have a chance of making a profit for the label and Axl Rose. And in today's music market that's an even more dubious proposition than it was when work on the album began way back in the late '90s.
