good quote about frank "rat bastard" quinto: "We hired a professional music archivist at one point to look at what we have in the vaults. He said he’d never seen anything like it. And that’s what he does for a living. He was overwhelmed."

Courtney I dont mind kicking dirt on because shes just an idiot and she continues to slag me off. Im enough of a gentleman not to talk about the things Ive seen. Shes literally making stuff up. Believe me, if I told people what Id really seen, well, if she thinks shes got problems now

i'll paraphrase:

"im italian! my girlfriend is too! i'm in a good place now, man. everything is coming from a good place. good place. good place. good place. good place. i'm not interested in being an oldies band now. im in a good place. courtney love is a crazy. i'll be passive aggressive now. i'm a gentleman. but with her, well she's a bitch, so i don't have to be a gentleman. man, i could tell some stories. but im not going to. oh, jessica simpson.. that was what it was. lovely person. good place. good place. yeah so it bothers me that bands get more praise than me, i've LITERALLY HAD 20 YEARS of SUCCESS! all that matters to me is that i release great music. and that's what im doing. its coming from a good place. good place. if you want old pumpkins, you are obsessed iwth porn. and you are fucking boring. i don't need that man, im in a good place. my current band are all fans of me, they beg me to play songs."

Think of that. An archive so awesome that even a proffesional archivist loses his nerve.

dear billy:

i don't want jimmy because he played on siamese dream. siamese dream isn't even my favorite record. i want jimmy because he's the ultimate drummer for SP and he is leagues ahead of the trash you have on stage now. that does not make me shallow. I would love nothing more than to hear new songs that are WRITTEN WELL with a drummer that can push them beyond the crap you are displaying now.

since he's italian now instead of irish, maybe if he sings XYU again ever, he can change the line "i am made of shamrocks" into "i am made of a meataballs" or "i am made of canoli" or perhaps the classic "i am made of apizza"

"The key for me is releasing new music of a high quality. That’s where I differentiate myself from a lot of peers, they’re just out there making money, they’re not putting out new music and if they are it’s sh-- music. I want to be judged against the highest quality of work not that just that I’ve ever done but that anyone has done."

Wow. What a self delusional fucking prick. Excuse me Billy but where is this high quality music you're talking about? What peers are you referring to?

The thing that gets me is he's always talking about love and being nice and being with god etc but then he craps on so many other people in a totally unnecessary way. He's up his own arse like he always has been, the finding god thing hasnt really changed anything about him other than limiting his options when it comes to his music. And the fact he acts like a brainwashed zombie on prozac.

so finally we find out why jimmy was fired:
Presumably you don’t want to share a stage with your former bandmates…

Why would I get on stage with someone who doesn’t call me for Christmas?
it's always in the little details.

james wasn't asked back to the band because he forgot to say goodbye after a show once. and now this.

If someone is not going to come see me play after 20 f---ing years because they disagree with the way I present myself and not even give me an opportunity...

I made a bargain in my brain which was `Ok if I’m gonna play these five songs you want to hear I’ll play these five songs I don’t give a f--- if you don’t wanna hear’. I’d play songs that were a bit hard to digest in a live context.

So, in a nutshell the fans who actually do what he thinks we should and actually go to a show, he automatically assumes we are there to hear BWBW, Today etc and punishes us with 45 mins of feedback and distortion masquerading as HMM, Set the Controls blahblah. And so all those fans who didn't go because "this isn't SP" can say "there you go, what'd i say?".

It’s a simple formula for me now, I don’t play any song I don’t want to play. I don’t care what song it is.

Setlist for Seattle 2010/09/10 consists of 18 tracks, 4 from TBK, 2 as-yet unreleased songs, 2 non-album tracks, 9 singles and one album track (US).

I didn't see much shit talk on old fans there. I saw shit talk on fickle fans.

If your reason for not going, whether there’s one original member, two original members, there original members…if that’s your sole reason for not going you’re not a fan of my music and certainly don’t respect what I’ve accomplished. So you’d go if it was Billy Corgan playing Smashing Pumpkins songs but not if it’s Billy Corgan in Smashing Pumpkins playing Smashing Pumpkins songs. Doesn’t that sound shallow?

He's right on target there.

sure, except as a fan that is not the SOLE reason I'm not paying to see him anymore. I've got a long list of reasons as to why I don't want to see SP3.

Yes, because thats the only reason why I was against it from the start.

Why can't he play SP music as Billy Corgan? Why does he have to be "SP"? Oh right, to get the casual fanbase that gives a shit about the name only. For the "brand name". Thats different, thats ok.

As far as the "I was always 1513543131553% of "SP" anyway argument he keeps bitching about. Look, back in the day when SP was huge, they didn't present the band as "Billy Corgan's band". They presented themselves as jimmy, james, darcy, and bill. These 4 are "SP". Thats how it was sold to us, thats how we bought it. Similiar to the beatles. A group of 4, together as one. You can have a favorite and shit, but in the end, those 4 were SP. Don't sit here now and bitch that you should have taken the Trent Reznor route and take the spotlight all to yourself. Its makes you look like a selfish asshole.

I've always said, had he just shown the past members some respect, people such as myself would have been very willing to give him a chance. Which I did anyway. I listen to the music and since zeitgiest, its b-sides material, if that.
