There aren't going to be any previews on iTunes? Like you know what I mean... you go to the album, click on the song and hear 20 seconds or whatever? Does that only happen after the album comes out...

I don't deal with iTunes often. And I'm not going to this time, either... I plan on illegally downloading the songs and waiting to import the physical CD. iTunes sux.

no no! Importing is gonna cost me more than I'd be paying for a full-length CD from Wal Mart, so there's no way I'm buying these songs twice! Besides, Billy says he doesn't care if people buy his music as long as people listen to it (even though he was LYING, no doubt...hahaha)

thats a lame payment considering everyone else will get the songs at the same time. its not like you're getting them early or anything.

appropiate payment would be a record a song dedicated to you, give it to you, and you hoard it (but you share it with me).

It's called: "Inside the Zeitgeist+" and features all the songs being played while Billy shops around local stores for a Lobster mate for his antique Lobster. And like I said, it's on the Special Edition of American Gothic.

did this band stop doing real interviews on purpose? did they explain why? they used to do interviews with many different publications for most albums before zeitgeist, now it seems a few sentences appear in every news blurb with very few interviews. curious if the band has stopped, or if the publications aren't interested, or what

ryoga
12-31-2007, 12:51 PM
I’m quite sure it was on purpose. I believe it was sometime during the orange peel gigs that BC mentioned that he felt that the media had something against him and wanted to see him fail…or something along those lines. I think there might be a video of it somewhere.

Rickpat12
12-31-2007, 12:54 PM
Yeah, in an interview he said he wanted to have the music do all the talking. Sorry I don't know which one, but it was one of the FIRST video interviews. Maybe that At&T Blueroom one, but I think that one was alittle later.

the only thing i've heard them say is they wanted the music to speak for its self. but they've done interviews.

Billy's being guarded about talking. He mentioned it on that XM acoustic thing, and the show I was at, he came out to talk after the last set, and thank the crowd.
BC:"I'm trying not to talk so much because when I do, I get in toruble..."
Fan:"Play Disarm!!"
BC:"nooo, we won't be playing disarm...See? This is why I can't talk! LOL"

Billy's being guarded about talking.

I'm fine with it, because when he finally does it's all elevated speech that tries to be poetic and mysterious, but really it just comes off as goofy. Case in point: his most recent official site blog. I could do without that kind of drivel. Just speak like a normal human being and tell us what's on your mind. You won't be criticized so badly if you speak normally.

He doesn't really talk like that, though... I mean, he has his moments, sure. But it's mostly when he's writing that he seems to go all weird on us.

Anyway, I don't really mind the lack of interviews. People either tend to just take things he says out of context and blow everything out of proportion or he really says something stupid, and I'm getting pretty sick of rolling my eyes.
