Not that it matters but do you just like repping election years in your username?  Why not just Axlin?   12 actually looks better though than 08 which si weird that I'd even notice that haha

Always wondered what the 08 stood for, but never bothered asking.  I love Axl, but I don't think I'd want him as POTUS. wink

When I originally signed up it was right when the election year was heating up. Obama, McCain, Obama, McCain... I said "why not Axl?"

At the time Chinese Democracy's release was gaining steam, and it just made sense. Obviously the "big roll out in November" was all Obama, and not GN'R, lol.

I never thought about changing it and suddenly realized, DAMN... it's been nearly a WHOLE presidential term. Why not change it from 08 to 12.


My username was always intended as a tribute to the T-shirts and buttons back during the UYI tour that said "Axl & Elvis in '92!"

That's what it's about.


And btw, many thanks to Neemo for the quick changeover.

And also, if anything works less efficiently on the face of the planet than GN'R... it's the U.S. government.

Actually makes GN'R look like a well-oiled machine, lol. 16

14 That's awesome.

People always get mine wrong too. It's supposed to be RussTCB. As in "Russ, Takin' Care of Business" which is an Elvis reference. But because I've always just used "russtcb" I've heard people think it's all sorts of wrong things. 16

What, you mean like my sister calling you Rusty Cab?
