it's not up? does that make this zeitgeist #525,013, but they're trying to trick us into thinking otherwise?

No, it still is not up. I know it really isn't a big deal, but I don't feel like buying the songs from Zeitgeist...if it isn't up by Friday afternoon, I'm just gonna buy them I guess.

i'm glad i didn't waste my hard earned 4 dollars on these songs. probably my least favorite thing billy's done, ever. I even liked TFE, so that's saying something.

If they didn't have DRM I would pay money for them, since they are DRM'd I'm just going to steal them. Plan kind of back fired there.

No idea. On iTunes the songs are listed as being from the American Gothic EP, but the songs aren't separated from Zeitgeist. :shrug:

Those mysterious semi circles again. It's so sad seeing such a sloppy release.

so what happened to the physical product of American Gothic? No mention of it today.

That idea probably got canned by the record company

perhaps jimmy should be in charge of hair. he did have the sweetest mullet at one time. and jimmy plays the tambourine too- he shakes the shit out of it with his massive muscles.

I think those mysterious semi-circles are just someone's fingerprints on the pieces of tape that appear to be over the words Smashing and Pumpkins.

This whole American Gothic attached to yet another Zeitgeist thing is strange.

But, on the SP Myspace blog they said "We would also like to remind fans outside of the US that a physical version will be released in the near future so sit tight if you aren't able to download the songs from the iTunes store."

Why wouldn't iTunes just have it on its own?

iTunes won't even let me change the cover art to the American Gothic cover.

Oh well, the songs aren't bad I suppose.

Here's an article I read about it if people haven't already seen it http://www.suntimes.com/entertainment/music/poprock/704098,pumpkins121907.article
