It can be just like the scene where the band plays the house part in the music video, but with Jack Bates instead of D'arcy and Jeff standing around for some reason. I guess Jeff earned a spot on the makeshift stage as a reward for putting up with Billy for 12 years. Maybe they can set up Jack's bass rig in a nearby bedroom and use a long ass cable to hook up his bass guitar to the amp.

Also, I gotta side with D'arcy on this one. It seems pretty sad how much Billy went from "never live in the past" to milking nostalgia for everything he can. It really is sad how much Billy's mouth backfires on him. If this were any other band, I'd find this contest entertaining and fun. But when Corgan spent the last 11 years shaming us for liking his old music, this just reeks of a desperate attempts to drum up hype for an underwhelming non-event "reunion" tour.

I wouldn't have a problem with it if it was a real reunion of the original lineup celebrating their past and newfound peace, but the nostalgia seems terribly forced when the original band's reunion fell apart and D'arcy and Billy hate each other.

1979 house party?

My goodness, I didn't think Corgan had it in him to shamelessly sell-out on nostalgia like this. This has been significantly worse than any of the other 90's groups reunions.

It's a stupid fucking rule attached to all contests for decades. And Québecers can't even enter at all because of loto-Québec's monopoly over contests or some shit

No kidding? New Hampshire has a venue called the Casino Ballroom, but there's NO GAMBLING at the Casino Ballroom. Gambling is illegal in NH...unless it's for charity, and you want to prove as much, and play some state government game.

Big ups on 1K posts.

Juliana's gossip:
"I have a story/gossip about that girl in the leopard sweater.

She was his love interest and I think special guest on the boat.
Later on she came to the after party and billy was chatting with her and performing weird tricks with his hat for her, he is super lame.

I saw her the thursday after at the benefit concert thingy after the show. However, she wasn't at the wrestling event on friday (from what I could tell). But his current GF Chloe was sitting beside him. HU recently retweeted some pic chloe had posted of being at the benefit event. I didn't see Chloe on the boat, but I could be wrong.

Therefore that leopard sweater girl got dumped."

Thanks. That's hilarious. There's a joke in there about it being a government-controlled racket. It's not too far off from where we stand really:

We get fucked for almost every North American contest outside of our borders: It basically boils down to the absolute control the almighty Regie des Alcools, des Courses et des Jeux - the government's board of Alcohol and Games in a nutshell - exercises over contests and sweepstakes "to protect the public" and there's a fuck ton of paperwork and of course they need to pay the regie a 10% fee. And there's hefty penalties in case the prize can't be followed up on. So most places just exclude us offhand.

Hate this fucking place for so many reasons.

The skill-testing question is basically the technicality that allows any prize up here to be given away. It's not strictly enforced these days, but since for-profit betting or gambling is technically illegal according to the Criminal Code, you can still give stuff away as a reward for :games of skill." Like a simple math equation. It's technicalities and pointless outdated legal bullshit at its finest.
