The years have not been kind to the former gods of glam rock—and particularly not to William Bruce Bailey, better known as Axl Rose.In most cases, lyrics from Guns N Roses songs are altered to pertain to food.What gets complicated is that while many of Axl s shows require photographers to sign a release giving usage rights to his management, Boris Minkevich, the Winnipeg Free Press photographer who shot the image in question, does not remember if he made such an agreement.While the gig itself took place in 2010, a Memegenerator page for Axl Rose Fat has existed for just over four years, and contains a piddling 931 entries at the time of this writing.Appropriated Guns N Roses lyrics being used to mock Axl s weight are by no means new, and they were never all that popular to begin with.Celebrities have been known to engage in this sort of PR war in the past, which often only makes the problem worse.
The Guns N Roses front man spent the early part of this year preparing for a massively-hyped reunion of his legendary hair metal band, and ended up taking a gig fronting hard-hitting classic rock outfit AC/DC in the process.All the while, Rose has slimmed down, getting back into shape after a few years touting a less-than-healthy physical appearance.The singer now wants the internet to forget about his overweight phase: Rose has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Google, demanding that a series of memes poking fun at his portly appearance be removed immediately, according to Torrentfreak.The photos, which were originally taken by Boris Minkevich for the Winnipeg Free Press six years ago, belong to Rose, according to the request.Please be advised that no permission has been granted to publish the copyrighted image so we cannot direct you to an authorized example of it, wrote Web Sheriff, an anti-piracy company based in the U.K., in the related notice.As of this post, all the memes remain accessible via a Google search.
A photo of Axl Rose from 2010 has turned into a meme, and the singer isn't happy about it.The Guns N' Roses frontman recently sent DMCA takedown notices to Blogspot and GoogleUserContent, through Web Sheriff, as TorrentFreak reports, regarding one image that has made the rounds online.The photo in question has been used in a meme poking fun at Axl Rose's apparent weight gain — see a screenshot from quickmeme.com below.The photo was taken at a concert by photographer Boris Minkevich and was published in the Winnipeg Free Press, as you can see here.While you might assume the photographer has the copyright, Web Sheriff says that photographers at Axl Rose's concerts sign contracts that give rights to the musician and his team.Minkevich himself can't remember if he signed such a form.Rose and Web Sheriff have filed multiple DMCA requests regarding the image, but it is still searchable on Google Images as of this writing.NOW WATCH: Hidden Facebook tricks you need to knowLoading video...

When bees swarm, a natural process when looking for a place to set up a new colony, they have the tendency to pick some strange locations as a temporary home.Case in point, this truck just chilling near a hotel in downtown Winnipeg.According to CBC News, bees tend to swarm when their current hives are too warm.Even though it s a menacing sight, the bees are usually at their most docile during the swarming process.The worker bees escort their queen to a secure location until scouts can find a more stable home, in this case a secure-seeming GMC pickup.Once beekeepers were able to locate the queen on the truck and place her in a box, most of the hive eagerly followed.
Making good on its recent promise, Sling TV has announced the official arrival of NHL Network on its service, making it the first over-the-top provider to offer this particular sports network.This a big deal with hockey fans, as it allows them to enjoy live hockey games and coverage without having to sign up for a contract-based cable or satellite subscription plan.As with PlayStation Vue, Sling TV streams live television content over the Internet.Sling TV and services like it have become a popular compromise between cord-cutting and traditional cable.Many cord-cutters decided to ditch cable because of a combination of cost, difficulty in choosing the particular content they want, and long contracts that obligate them into long-haul service.Sling TV is different, operating without a contract and with a base rate onto which cheaper channel collections can be added.

Mechanics have heard it all when it comes to car troubles—literally.Don t be afraid to make some silly noises for them.Remember those AAMCO we hear you commercials where people would walk up to a mechanic and explain their car problems with silly sounds?Well, that s actually not a bad idea.Mechanics from independent auto shops and dealerships told Jake Rossen at Mental Floss that they usually prefer you making the sound than trying to explain it.Ryan M., a mechanic in Winnipeg, explains:

The Pole House's unique design and use of recycled gas pipes for stilts could provide a model for how to avoid flood damage.While searching for the perfect building materials to construct a new home, turning to recycled gas pipes is likely the last option a typical homebuilder or architect would settle on.However, this is exactly what Canadian architecture firm DINS Projects decided on while building a unique cottage located near Lake Winnipeg.Due in part to the area s flood problem, DINS went with the odd choice of recycled gas pipes to stilt the house, helping to protect it from damage should flooding occur.The finished product is a vertical marvel that sits perfectly against its nearby Canadian wilderness.After a provincial cottage lot lottery system secured the unique plot of land for the owners, DINS Projects went to work designing a home that not only boasts the ability to avoid flooding but one which also abides by the strict regulations native to the area.
Not only are the Golden Knights off to an 8-2 start, but they also rank in the top 10 of the most expensive average prices on the secondary market according to TicketIQ, the company I founded.If the Golden Knights can maintain anything close to current attendance and demand levels, their sports gambling-friendly approach may do more than just help the NHL solve the “warm-weather problem.” In the face of larger screens and threats like virtual reality, it could be the biggest boon to event attendance since the advent of the dome.Behind Auston Matthews, one of the NHL’s biggest young stars, Maple Leafs Nation is as excited as ever and hoping to break their 50-year drought.Since moving from Winnipeg to Phoenix in 1996, the Coyotes have had as many division championships as bankruptcies, and have only advanced past the first round of the playoffs once.Amidst those inexorable forces, gambling may be their great equalizer.Through his company, Monumental Sports, Leonsis has invested in a European company called Sportradar, which he describes in the same interview as “having deep ties to integrity assurance in the gambling world.” With the endless possibilities that could come from the opportunity for in-venue betting, “integrity insurance” sounds like a good bet for the future.
“We love subzero weather, and pray for it,” says Eric Hegedus, an engine test engineer with GE Aviation.They’re here to bring the freeze to the world’s largest jet engine, the GE9X.Developed primarily for the new Boeing 777X, this behemoth is wider than the fuselage of a 737 jet and can generate more than 10,000 pounds of thrust.Hegedus, who usually works at GE Aviation’s Cincinnati headquarters, is in Winnipeg to see how well the engine handles when things get icy.Just to mount the ginormous thing, which just completed other tests (like being shot with frozen chickens and consuming buckets of foreign sand) at GE’s Peebles, Ohio, facility, the team had to expand and rejigger its test stand, rigging up extra fans and nozzles, to simulate the amount of air and water the engine will guzzle at speed.Once they’ve installed and wired up the engine with a bevy of sensors, the engineers will sit and wait for the right temperature to arrive—somewhere between -6 and -10 degrees Fahrenheit.
