Default this is the best time since 1996 to be a pumkins fan

or 97 if you like that tripe. the reasons are the following:

two good new songs: owata (some cringworthy singing that will hopefully be ironed out) and song for a son

the latest messages haven't been filled with attempts to appear intelligent or deep, just good ol' dumb billy.

the chris isaak hour showed a much more realistic and open billy, when talking about how great a lyricist he was he sort of went "meh" and he sounded genuinely hurt while talking about how james had snubbed him in the streets.

i think all in all this means that billy finally has recovered enough from the death of his mother to start getting back to his old creative self again.

Certainly don't think this is the best time to be a Pumpkins fan since 96-97 - That was probably in 2000 when he promised no more Smashing Pumpkins (I could be wrong on this).

There's been some good stuff since they revived the band, but they've still cheapened the name.

On a seperate note, I'm sick of hearing him talk about child abuse in interviews. It ruined If All Goes Wrong for me - especially as Pete Townsend was in it for no reason other than to say "I can talk about child abuse 'cos I wasn't looking at pictures of kids" over and over again. He was going on about on the Chris Issac Hour as well. I can only imagine how tough a break it is but really, he used to use lyrics for this.

This is the best time ever to throw up about anything Pumpkins and hide your CD collection in case your friends decide to visit you.

Billy told me you have no life because you spent so much of it on Photoshop cropping that one photo of Billy's head.
