The Megadeth Equation of Album Updates

Band Photo: Megadeth (?)

American thrash/heavy metal band Megadeth have given some equations based on the amount of work completed for their new upcoming album:

"12/12, 3/12, 3/12, 3/12 0/12, 0/12, 0/12, 0/12, 0/12, 0/12

"Droogies!

"The above formula is based off of some fractions and the amount of work to be done still. See if you can stick with me on the way.

"Shawn is indeed done and back in Atlanta, 12/12.

"We are working on rhythms; I had three, as well as Chris that was finished, and James got two finished. I have nine left, as well as Chris and James has 10 (I was told to use the digits when writing after the number nine).

"The vocals, solos, BGVs, Keyboards, effects, mixes and mastering are still left to do.

"We will keep you posted, but I doubt we are going to have this done in time.

"It wasn't for lack of trying, my lovely Droogs. We have all sat around and been ready and waiting for our turn at the recording process only to have Murphy's Law interrupt us: with an interview, a photo shoot, a mix of a live DVD, some recording on the Static-X record, doing work on the private stuff that Andy has backed up around his neck (hehehe) and various other chat room or fan club interviews. I get there every morning and wait, Andy has been a good sport about all of the parts and working while we are getting everything lining up, James has been there a lot of the times and has been working on archive stuff, Chris has been down almost daily now going over songs with me, and we are just getting fired up!!!

"I have to hop off of the computer because it is needed by someone.

"What a great freaking day... stay metal, or die trying!!!

"MSGD!

I got a better equation; pay very close attention:

Megadeth + studio time - updates = getting the album done and releasing it so we can hear the music instead of what you need to do.

Nice one there Jenny.

Here's the math from a metal mathematician:
The first 12th is "the song will be in E minor"
The second 12th is "might need some drums"
The third 12th is "Dave's lame lyrics"
The fourth 12th is "rewrite the lyrics to something less gay"
The fifth 12th is "sell some coffee"
The sixth 12th is "wax poetic about a bunch of lame day-to-day routine that nobody gives a F about"
The seventh 12th is "wish i wasn't such an alcoholic early on and got kicked out of Metallica and so missed out on the whole Rock and Roll hall of fame shindig"
The eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth 12th are "who cares? just put in Peace Sells or Rust in Peace, nothing I ever do will top that so why do I even keep trying?"
