NEAL: what are your thoughts on the GnR leak?
DOWNEY just a sec...
"Better" from Chinese Democracy
it's catchy, gay modern rock with a beefier Axl voice
with a bow chicka riff
worthy of the Chili Peppers
my mind is being blown
i am now the dude in the old Memorex ads
pinned to a recliner
DOWNEY: is it the whole album?
NEAL: just a single
dude, this shit is all over the place
it's your rocker uncle's idea of avant garde
DOWNEY: like "Oh My God" was?
NEAL: i guess
it's like, motherfucker, i waited 15 years for this?
POWs were treated better after returning from Vietnam
this song is GAY
DOWNEY: am I watching a teen drama on the WB?
NEAL: American Idol
Kelly Clarkson is about to do a drop
DOWNEY: is this a montage where the hero broods and thinks about the chick that died in the swimming pool?
the cool chick be blew off
to be with the party girl
DOWNEY: is someone boxing a heavy bag in a barn?
NEAL: is someone diving off the Queen Mary and swimming with dolphins?
DOWNEY: shirtless, hands wrapped, rugged jeans
HAHAHAHAH I WISH!
fucking robot dolphins
don't forget to say ROBOT in front of "dolphins"
whoa sweet fart noise keyboard breakdown
DOWNEY: robot moshing?
DOWNEY: it's like
he's the michael jackson of our generation
just watching someone rad go totally fucking batshit
NEAL: "I like Magnetic Fields, Bootsy Collins, Kelly Clarkson, AC/DC, Buckethead, and sucking cock - what does that sound like?"
DOWNEY: what a formula
this SOUNDS like Dave Navarro, Bryan May and Shaq dropping by the studio to record guest appearances
DOWNEY: like... it SOUNDS like that and that all happened
NEAL: Shaq Fu, nucka
DOWNEY: a fucking "na na na" part???????
yeah, it goes on and on
and manages to steadily get worse
oh, sweet, there is a recording of Prince at the Super Bowl on this site
DOWNEY: that ruled
