Default Does anyone feel this sort of earnest empathy for BC re:Zuzu's?

it's weird, he's doing promo stuff on insta and giving away free grilled cheese and tomato soup to everyone in highland park

and it just seems so...it's hard watching someone try so hard. like restaurants have such a high failure rate. and with covid and everything.

i think wrestling is fucking stupid and the new SP is pretty shit, but the fact that he wants to open a cute little tea shop is so quaint it hurts and i don't want him to be hurt by it

Ahhh. Ohhhh you have sympathy with millionsire rockstar?

Jesus millions have lost their jobs and cant pay their rent and you hoping for billy to be a successful teabag?

In any other job u cannot fail 20 years. You get fired....but ol bolly bully billy can release any shit.

He sold his house ( who needs 4 bedrooms?) For 3 million.....

For god sake write one good album and you deserve to earn some money...
But that hasnt happened in the last 20 years.

Yeah, opening Zuzu's 2.0 during a pandemic seems pretty insane. People are hunkering-down just trying to survive these chaotic times -they're not thinking about esoteric teas and toasted sandwiches. Maybe Billy signed the lease pre-covid and has to make do with the situation.

The shop is huge! It's more like a big restaurant. The possibility of having that many people in one place -and having live music again- isn't even on the horizon at this point until a vaccine comes out.

Sympathy for a rich person making more money? Oh, yes, it happens all the time.

I don't think millionaire rockstars start local tea shops just because they need the money.

Dude, vegan grilled cheese and exotic teas are rockstar.
I believe even Lemmy Kilmister had opened up a cupcake-on-a-stick shop before he died.

Billy Corgan is one cool dude.

Doubt Billy is opening Zuzu's for primary income but also not sure he's made of money either. Certainly not a good time to be opening

Again, he probably looks at it as an investment.

A small restaurant or club (in this case “tea house”) is something a lot of rock stars open up to invest some of the excess cash they have after paying their living expenses, establishing some savings, and investing in more traditional ways.

It’s a relatively low-cost business venture that yields some potential for profit and also serves as a way to network and establish friendly relations with the local community and pass the time between tours and albums.

Giving Billy’s level of bloodless business savvy (remember his texts with D’Arcy where he was complaining about all the money he’s lost?), I don’t feel bad for him. I doubt he gives half a shit about ZuZu’s beyond what it offers him on the back end in terms of the bottom line.

Aren't those last couple of things non-financial incentives?

I dunno, maybe the guy just likes tea or something.

Yeah they would be called investments of social capital dude.

And yeah you’re right maybe Billy is just a nice guy who does things because he likes them and not a totally psychotic megalomaniac.

What was I thinking??

I think Chloe is involved in Zuzus a lot considering she worked at version 1.0 and is independently wealthy.

Like, I'm not saying he's running his tea shop as a charity. But plenty of people pursue certain careers or business ventures because they legitimately enjoy them, but wouldn't still pursue them if they didn't make any money from them because they are not going to pour thousands of their own dollars into something just as a hobby.

Like, somebody who becomes a guitar teacher usually does so because she genuinely likes playing guitar and teaching it to people, but that doesn't mean she's going to come over to your house and teach you for free if you can't pay just because she enjoys it. Likewise, the fact that Corgan obviously wants to profit from his tea shop doesn't mean he secretly gives no shits about tea.

Yeah I agree it’s probably Chloe that wants ZuZu’s to open more than him. She’s always posting about vegan food and things she’s making on Instagram. It’s good there’s another outlet for her to tell people to put their phones in airplane mode again also.

That Airplane Mode thing isn't funny anymore. She was running around serving tea and just wanted the recording to go well.
