I bumped into Axl Rose this weekend.

I was in New York. I had just been to my friend's comedy show and we were racing back to catch the train. We were standing outside Madison Square Garden having a hot dog when Pete's eyes focused behind me and he said "That's Axl Fucking Rose!"

I whirled around to see that Pete was, in fact, correct. Axl Rose was approaching with a model on his arm, a full entourage, and a face like a PSA against Botox.

What happened next I can only explain as a scene from that Cold Case show on CBS. You know how the show always ends with some nostaglic music and all the characters flip back and forth with younger versions of themselves?

I imagine how the scene must have looked from Axl's point of view as a version of the Cold Case ending. I imagine him looking at Pete and I standing there - just then, someone crosses between us and we're magically converted to our fifteen-year-old selves, shouting "Wooo! Hey Axl! Woo!" and making the devil sign with our hands.

I'm pretty sure he told us to "Fuck Off!"

It was awesome!!!

This ain't any use, he complained.. My young mother and my young grandmother are very distinct figures in my memory, ministering to the old gentleman, wrapped in his dressing-gown, and seated upon the piazza.. The Tylers! I should say I do! was the unexpected and enthusiastic reply.. Miss Lydia sat immovable, not daring to glance toward her father.. The spelling-school is one of the ordinary winter amusements in the country.. Morland expressed her fears that the coachman had forgotten to come for them.. That is the case when we dream, for instance, that some dear relative has died of plague when we know of no ground for expecting, apprehending, or assuming anything of the sort; we can only ask ourself wonderingly: What brought that into my head? To the third group those dreams belong which are void of both meaning and intelligibility; they are incoherent, complicated, and meaningless.. She had expected to return home before matters had proceeded so far, but being obliged to remain some time longer, she was equally afraid to go on and to leave off, a denouement being almost certain to ensue in either case.. You have rightly guessed that the question means, What is the history of the Reformation in Hungary?] to the nineteenth century and a half lasted till the oysters came.. These things were matters of long, long ago, and I came to this country soon after.. As a very recent symbol of the male genital may be mentioned the flying machine, utilization of which is justified by its relation to flying as well as occasionally by its form.. His house, a rambling West Indian mansion, was surrounded with deep, spacious piazzas, covered with luxurious lounges, among which one capacious chair was his peculiar seat.. She ate a sandwich and choked.. In condensation we have already considered the case where two conceptions in the dream having something in common, some point of contact, are replaced in the dream content by a mixed image, where the distinct germ corresponds to what is common, and the indistinct secondary modifications to what is distinctive.. She became the business head of the family, and he the spiritual.. At first I had a feeling that I was going to be at great cost for clothing him.. He was mentally adrift upon the Hints and Helps to Young Men in Business and Social Relations , which had suggested to him his present enterprise, when the appearance of a second youth, taller and broader than himself, with a shock of light curling hair and a crop of freckles that advertised a rich soil threw him a lifeline.. Jacobus's pigeons flew down and picked up the shining grains, making grateful noises far down in their throats.. But, gentlemen, I shall prove to you that such was the foolish, self-convicting custom of the defendant.. during the day by the work of the foreconscious...
