BTW, could it be that D'arcy has read ur remarks here on Netphoria about wearing permanently make up?

ďIt is fuzzy because I didnít realize the live thing was on Ė though I really like the slight visual motion. ZERO MAKEUP

Back in April 2011, when "Alternative Music" was "Grunge Report":



GrungeReport.net launched exactly 2 years ago today! Back in the summer of 2009 GrungeReport.net averaged only a few hundred hits per day, and 2 years later the site averages thousands of hits per day. I really have to thank the loyal readers of the site for the support, especially the cool people who send in news and reviews like Paul, Terri, Ben, Andrei, and everybody else. Sometimes it takes a few days but I try to get to every e-mail. Also of course thanks to all of the bands I cover for continuing to kick ass like Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, and everybody else I cover. And to the haters like the ones who like to take thinly veiled shots at me on Twitter, quoting Chris Cornell in ďTy Cobb,Ē fuck you all!

Like I have mentioned a few times before on here, I do plan on launching a big more mainstream rock site sometime this year as a companion site to GrungeReport.net. By mainstream I donít mean Nickelback and Coldplay, I mean basically a rock site that covers good bands outside of just our favorite Grunge acts. Iíve been working on concepts for the site for months and have been taking my time to make sure the site is unique and successful, I donít want to rush it.

Also like you have seen recently, my Dad and I launched a site called GrabLoot.com that is a viral internet marketing site that has contests where people can win prizes. Not exactly a musical website, but in this economy it would be nice if the idea ends up working out!

On a random note I actually had a long phone conversation with Billy Corgan several months back. I never thought to mention it on the site but thought I would now since this is a news and notes type article, it was about a project idea that didnít end up working out. We talked about some other stuff too about the history of the Pumpkins. It was pretty trippy to talk to Billy though, interesting to say the least.

Anyways, thatís it. It should be an exciting third year for GrungeReport with Soundgardenís tour/new album and PJ20. Feel free to shoot me an e-mail as always to grungereport @yahoo.com

-Brett

No to rich parents. 2008 crash hit my family hard. My Dad does help with some tech stuff like WordPress updates and server upkeep when stuff like a server move happens, we have tried a couple other website ideas in the past. Yes I did mention that I talked to Corgan, but I've never written about specific things he said. It was a very interesting talk, I thought it was really cool that he'd talk to someone my age at the time.

My correction on yourself: Pigs are smart. Dogs are smart too. But you are smart like a bacon sandwich.
the insta account posted the picture first, before anyone else

As mentioned in the new article, D'arcy only knew about the photo getting out because friends had told her. She hasn't looked online to see everywhere it was posted like that Instagram page.

Kerry Brown posted about wanting people for documenting making of TBK for like a film/book, I think it went up on SP page. So I contacted Kerry out of curiosity and he set up a call about a book. I think the book thing may have been some miscommunication though, because once on phone there wasn't any real talk of TBK and was more so just general book ideas being thrown out there. Very cool talk, but I didn't follow up on anything because it didn't seem like what I initially thought it would be about, and that it wasn't necessarily going to be an official SP book or making of TBK. I did have an opportunity but it wasn't concrete enough for me to want to put time into it. Was awesome though to talk to Billy, it was interesting to get his take on things in a non interview talk. I've kind of lost interest in ever wanting to do something like a book, it'd need to be something really cool and there'd have to be a good money deal.

Like I said before she got confused or something froze up and she hasn't bothered reactivating it. She's not super tech savvy, though she's very good at sending funny text messages lol.

Clearly she was expecting the same king of support after posting the printscreens, but then people started telling her she was wrong.

The bigger kind of bad reaction might have been on the photo of D'arcy posted by ManCow on February 13th, the day her Facebook site shut down.

I don't think she was aware of that tho. As soon as she posted Billy's texts it backfired on her. Even though most of the people were very polite trying to show her it sounded more like Billy tried his best to have her playing with them again. In her opinion, he was only using her, but well that's business, I'm sure she would get something back from the whole reunion too.

She was replying to everybody trying to make things clear, quoting a conversation that wasn't part of the printscreens (the one where Billy supposedly said she had no chances to be part of the band again anyway), and a few minutes after that she went offline and then deleted her facebook.

I noticed she deleted a few posts on her other profile as well. Or made them private.

Her Facebook account is not deleted, only muted. It is still counted in your friends list, but doesn't show up.

Itís not an age thing. People have been talking about her changed appearance for the best part of 20 years.

Thereís a new Breeders album out this week. Kim Deal is 56. The focus is on her music, not her looks. Although I think if there is any comment to make itís that she looks happier and healthier than ever.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/22/a...all-nerve.html

People want to see Díarcy like that. Iím sure Billy did too, but here we are.

Clickbait headlines are used because Facebook and Google have monopolized the internet, and their algorithms (Facebook especially) are designed in a way that literally the only way for articles to gain traction now are with clickbait headlines. Without a clickbait headline, it's basically a waste of time to write an article. I really hope that somehow the government can find a way to break up their monopolies so people can have multiple apps/platforms to get their content, if that happens I do think the clickbait model could change a bit when it comes to headline formatting, but it's just the way it is right now.
That's sweet man! The sites really become a juggernaut. What ever happened to that Magic Mike guy who posted on the site? He was hilarious

I really don't mind the clickbait stuff. It's actually kind of clever in a way. I don't mean this offensively but it's kind of like TMZ for alt rockers.

I'd like to think that Billys intentions are pure, but it's clear with this venture that he's just interested in cashing in... The focus isn't on new music like with Deal.

If Billy was smart he would have rolled the dice with D'arcy while having Jack Bates on retainer in case she couldn't handle the workload. That way it's win-win. It's not like it would cost that much to pay Bates.
