Lightbulb siamese dream mystery

i'm not sure what to think of this, but when i was looking up the matrix codes of the siamese dream vinyl reissue (to add it to www.spfreaks.com), i thought they looked a bit weird. long story short, i found out that part of the matrix codes were hidden messages.

here are the matrix codes on the four sides:
5099967929016 Siamese Dream Disc 1 Side 1 A+R Dallas SPGII S-27899 RE-2 6.21.3.11 25.15.21
5099967928910 Siamese Dream Disc 1 Side 2 S-27900 RE-2 19.21.3.11 13.25 4.9.3.11
5099967929016 Siamese Dream Disc 2 Side 1 A+R Dallas SPGII S-27901 RE-2 12.9.3.11 13.25 16.21.19.19.25
5099967929115 SIAMESE DREAM DISC 2-SIDE 2-Re1 S-27902 RE-3 23.5 12.15.22.5 25.15.21

it's simple alphabet code. 1=a, 2=b, ...
this results in: "fuck you", "suck my dick", "lick my pussy", and "we love you".
i thought maybe some of you might find this interesting.

does anyone have any insight in who might be responsible for these little additions to the matrix codes?
do you think b0lly o'corrigan knows about these?

oh yeah, this is real.
some other people with this reissue have checked their copy, and it has the same matrix codes.

i have no idea.
someone must have thought this would be funny?
not that many people think "dick" or "pussy" is that funny, so it can't be too hard to find the person who did this.

Ha! It's like a schoolboy version of the Machina mystery. I'm guessing these must have been added by the person who cut the vinyl? Corgan would be pissed off knowing this. Can we have some pics?

why would the reissue have the same matrix codes? - it wasn't pressed from the same master

here's one scan.


the story isn't really that interesting.
someone had asked me to make scans of the vinyl labels and to write down the matrix codes, so they could add the gish and siamese dream vinyl reissue to www.spfreaks.com. (someone else was making pictures of his sealed copies.)
i was writing down the matrix codes from each side, and the matrix codes from siamese dream seemed a bit odd to me. too long. and those last numbers seemed inconsistent. if they had a matrix code meaning, i'd expect them all to have the same format. but instead, they seemed like random numbers with random dots and spaces in between them.
then i also noticed none of the numbers were larger than 26, so i thought, what if it's alphabet code?
and then i checked if it was, and to my surprise, it was.
the end.

ps, slunken: i am only discussing the 2011 vinyl reissues here.

It was possibly Billys idea. Hence the last message being the "we love you" part.

that's what the people at spfreaks.com told me. if i understand it correctly, they tried to contact billy or someone close to the band about it, via i-don't-know-who, and this is what they heard.
i don't think billy has tweeted about it or something. i believe he'd rather keep it quiet.
