See the Bill Sr post got 11k likes? That must be a WPC record.

Love the pic of the two SD girls, but it wouldn't be an album cover unless the album was "SD 2" (which it won't be). Personally, I do prefer the brighter coloured album artwork rather than the black background type; I've always heard SP music as bright and sunny rather than dark (except for Adore, where the artwork is perfectly matched to the music).

The reaction on Facebook is honestly scary. 3/4 of the band's fanbase consist of Trump supporters and people who like making fun of D'arcy's old mugshot and calling her a crack whore

Go to the comment section of fucking Huffington Post (or anywhere else) if you want to discuss politics and share your boring outrage.

This is Netphoria.

Bernie Sanders guy here -

You would be surprised at the number of Trump POLICY supporters in the corporate setting. And then all those people that got refund checks that work at a corporate company...

Just because you support him doesn't make you racist. But if you are racist, you probably support him, lol.

I think the pictures based off The Simpsons should become the "Billy PLS" of this tour.

Yeah! It'd be good for a SD special edition...like an acoustic version of the album with James on it

That'd be a great idea and would sell well, with both versions of the record.

So of course... it won't happen.

You see, I want the opposite. I don't want to see the "shredder" doing what he's been doing since 07'. I want to see the original 3. Not Jeff. He does nothing for me. If they can't have D'arcy then bring in a good notable bassist.

I remember that. that' shit was fucked up. I know I'm a jackass here but I'd never bother outside of this space... some people are animals with no self control// take things too far.

Nah, they are still racist. No such thing as "socially liberal/fiscally conservative". If you support policies that increase inequality and disproportionately affect minorities, you are still a bigot, even if you get along with your minority coworkers.

Anyway, it's pretty telling how divided this fan community is, and how so many of the pro-pumpkin camp voices come from the alt-right, anti-PC brigade. It makes perfect sense too.

Little Augie looking creepy with his grandpa. Little Bill feeling like Orpheus.

AJC with my father, Billy Dale Corgan. Though my Father and I have had our bumps and downs through the years, and as he pointed out to me yesterday, 'think of the stories I haven't told you', he remains the original inspiration for my life in music. And it's a shame that I don't have any evidence to demonstrate to you what an incredible musician he was in his prime, and how to this day his talent inspires awe and a sense of dignity in my heart; for music being a noble art, his respect for greatness in others made me want to live up to his high standards. Which might explain my long-standing scrum with the critical intelligentsia, for believe it or not, and their various condemnations aside, my Father's standards were always much higher than theirs. So it wasn't they in whom I wanted ultimate validation from, it was his. Which is why Bill Sr's blessing on the Orpheus-like return of the band means so much to little Bill.

For music being a noble art.

For believe it or not.

NOT.

Also the critical intelligensia have way higher standards than his drug-dealing dad, who has no fucking musical legacy to speak of. D’arcy and Mike Byrne have achieved more. And critics didn’t condemn SP’s output when it was good, and they were supportive of Zwan and Oceania. The 3/5 MTAE reviews weren’t some sort of critical stand-off.

Corgan destroyed his own fanbase and pissed on critics when he turned on them for not liking his unpleasant production decisions and ‘trained’ singing voice. I mean if your music sounds shitty to your core, adoring fanbase, that’s a major fucking problem for a supposed arena touring AAA rock band.

He really is like Trump.

B0lly is out of his fucking rocker if he thinks he'll manage to get some big sized crowds on those arenas. At best, he can hope for some ZG tour crowds, and even then that's unlikely to happen.

I'll be waiting for the eventual Craigslist postings searching for attractive models to fill some seats, like the Oceania dvd
