You're a Smashing Pumpkins fan. Thoughts on the D'arcy-free reunion?

I don't...I didn't even know there was a reunion. Sorry.

I had no idea 30 Seconds to Mars was still a band. He was alright in Blade Runner and Requiem I guess.

Poor Billy wah wah

I'm not a big fan of his music, but Jared Leto has a lot of Billy-esque ideas. The only difference is that Jared Leto actually pulls them off effortlessly without a hint of ego in between rock climbing sessions and movie roles.

Btw, Jared Leto is only 4 years younger than Billy.

If you want to kill five or ten minutes, search for Jared Leto inspirational quotes

Or read about what he did to his Suicide Squad costars; "Jared Leto pig corpse" will probably find some articles

Here's what he might have said to Billy if he'd been better prepared

Jared's entire "band" is a vanity project imitating other groups, incl. sp. His whole image is assumed. He's as vacuous as they come.

Jared Leto is one of the most arrogant people out there too. He makes Billy look downright humble. That Walk on Water song that they play on the radio every 5 seconds (payola much?) is fuckin terrible. Jared Leto has the distinction of being mediocre in two fields which is some kind of feat, I guess.

During a concer at First Avenue in Minneapolis, Leto told everyone to get up and dance to the next song, which is weird because 95% of the club is already standing room only. During the intro of the song he stop playing and demanded to know why someone in the balcony was not standing and dancing.

That person was in a wheelchair.

That's right. There's nothing inside. He has that whole messianic front man shtick down.

I think his music sucks too, but I've met a lot of people who actually really like it.

Meh, 30 Seconds to Mars isn't that bad, they have some good albums. It's weird in that video though, like he's got the entire front of the stage and the rest of the band seems way in the back.

I haven't heard a huge amount of their stuff, but at least Jared Leto makes things happen and knows how to connect with fans.

"Let's ask fans to send in their clips and make a video about what America means to them - It happens.

"Let's have a summer camp experience for fans" - It happens.

"Let's make an album cover that fans can customize and post online" - It happens.

Billy, on the other hand...

When I listened to them Back in 2005, I enjoyed the early stuff- demos from the late 90s, the self titled album!, and, to some extent, A beautiful lie and this is war-you know, when you could've hear some guitars in the music. I don't know what happened after that, but it's horrible. It kinda started with this is war, those cheap choruses, children choruses, even more repetitive lyrics, 0 guitars etc. Also, nice answer from Leto

I saw Jared Leto at a grocery store in one time. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”

I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
