serendipitously, fanmail from what appears to be a 13 year old boy is exactly the motivation EMI needs to seal the deal. i hope he mentioned organising bieber-esque fangirl buyouts

isn't this guy in it*?
and if so, why didn't he consider typing this letter up on his pc and printing it out, rather than sending in a letter that looks like it was written by a seven year old?
and why is he writing his name twice?

what a fucking cunt.

more or less. he asked us to collaborate and show interest to EMI. Montel is pretty much obeying what b0lli said

i still don't understand how monty's been to all these pumpkins shows where other people recognise him, yet he is still alive. i'd take him out in no time.

as we know, monte's spelling and grammar is rather atrocious at the best of times, and nothing says formal and professional than a hand scrawled letter.

after reading the letter though, i'm sure this is a wind up :think:

Re: Smashing Pumpkins

I recently heard that Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins has interest in EMI releasing a 20th anniversary edition of their platinum record "Gish".

I am upset that you do not honor this album. It is such a ground breaking sound for all rock music of the 90's.

I strongly encourage you to make contact with Billy Corgan so that you can start working on honoring this work(?) & honor the legacy of Smashing Pumpkins!

Fuck that. If I'm gonna write a letter to EMI, I'm promoting my own music, not some 40-year-old bald dude...

Either way, it'll get tossed in the shredder. http://serve.mysmiley.net/sad/sad0027.gif

Hey hey, remember this is not some 40 year old bald creep related thing, this box set should be about a long-haired, hard-rocking, acid-consuming dude and his cool band including a sexy chick in suspenders (sometimes)

setting: lobby of the venue in davenport, waiting to be let in for the show. monte is wearing slacks, a button-up shirt and tie. i recognize him immediately.

time passes.

later: in the restroom, at the sink. washing my hands. in the mirror, monte appears from the shadows. i watch as he approaches the door to exit and pushes. the door shows no signs of opening. confounded and with his panic level clearly rising, he attempts the push again and again, each time more frantically and desperate. he is pouring sweat and shaking uncontrollably. in bleak and utter despair, sobbing and choking on his own spittle, he pulls-- and the door opens.

after: lobby of the venue in davenport. monte is wearing slacks, a button-up shirt and tie.
