Couldn't I get this box now for half the price because of the cat dirt?
Why didn't he post consistently the link to the Madame ZuZu online site?

FULLY foresee this post leading to a spike in sales. Will have to monitor very closely in the coming days and weeks. If you've been on the fence as to whether to buy one now or later, I'd go now before there's a run of sales.

Former Marilyn Manson keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy (aka Pogo) ripping Billy Corgan on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/stephen.bie...34969126563917

“Trent Reznor and Charlie Clouser in their pinky fingers have more knowledge about synthesizers than Billy Corgan has in his giant bald f****** head!”

“Oh my God, I just had an epiphany: just like Brian Warner thinks he’s David Bowie, Billy Corgan thinks he’s Brian Eno! I mean why else would you release box sets of ridiculous synthesizer and radio noises for hundreds of dollars unless you thought you were f****** Brian Eno… who could actually do a good job with it, like ‘music for airports’?”

“It all makes sense now, except Brian Eno is a humble, decent, human being who actually does make art and experimental music… while Billy Corgan is a walking, talking, piece of human feces that makes faux art and bullsh*t noise!”

“Is ‘Siddhartha’ a type of synth or is he actually using the name of the Buddha for his pompous self-indulgent crap?”

“Hey I’ll sell you an eight-hour box Jam of synthesizer crap for $8 if you want it? Seriously I got f****** tons of that crap. At one point in time, I tried to write the world’s longest song… it would literally take hours upon hours of CDs, because it was set at exactly 1 BPM.”

“His electronic stuff is like a chimpanzee with a typewriter, given enough time they can write Shakespeare.”

1A
Gristle. The vinyl looks like a slab of glass, nice crackle.
Bouncy squelch. Sounds alright, more tuneful than the Aegea recording, Selected Ambient Works II-esque.
Eastern feel creeps in. Drums shutter. Could be NIN. Stop.

1B
Picks up where it left off and gets creepier. Hops and whitstles segue into an alarm.
Dentist drill. Becoming a difficult listen.
Speeds up, better, softer. Fades down and yelps take over.
Alien soundscape, more atmosphere, swarm of bees.
Oppressive gibber.
This is going to be more difficult than I thought.

2A
More oscillation (if that's the right word)
Plinks and plonks
Fades.
Soft patter, slight echo, minimal.
Bleeps to the forefront, confused dance, mixed up thud underneath.
A machine still operating thru the night.

2B
Snaffles and spits. Downward trend.
Slowing down.
Meanwhile back on the spaceship.
Burning engines distorted as fuck.

3A
Crackle. Snap and pop have long since departed. Up and down steadily as an army of tiny ants plough underneath the grooves. Hark a warning sound, and then gone. Repeats. Crickets talk now below the buzzing flies. Shoo shoo the laser seems to say. Techno chops at the low end Turning Dragonesque. Pop's back, this time atop a subtle little thrill. Crackle pull a knife on pop, drags him under slowly like a Canadian octopus. Yes.

3B
Charming nonsensical notes. There is a tune here but it has been mangled into mud. Very different to before, playful like ring a ring of roses. Clumsy feedback swells divert attention screaming beams of windy sound all around. Atishoo, atishoo, we all fall down.

4A
Plinky plonk, space bound, no real purpose jus' moochin' round. Dark here now. More dentist chair antics on this Savage Planet. Won't somebody think about the Ohms! Clangers won't, too busy foraging for scrap to know what to do. Emergency emergency, just for a second and then back to the business; whatever that is. More techno! More dragon! A cheeky little surprise, held back for the reprise.

4B
Fists full of synth. Smash. Fatlip. A train, a train, a train, a train, would you, could you, step away? The guard whistles, playing his tricks, stop starting the train with the peep of his lips. Incas appear, pan-pipe bombing the creaking metal tracks and that is that. We're all ears, if ears were echoes, ringing out and squaring a circle at the break of a new day. Ambient embrace, all over the place.

5A
Tick tock bass motors around a cuckoo clock. Swiss made so the legend says. Show your inners. Show the working. The bird chirps. Cuckoo ups the pace and the wood is replaced. Metal now and modern too. More stabs. More beeps and creeps for you. A swell of sound, grey cloud droops over the fictional mountain and away to Baden-Württemberg. In the woods the birds are silent as something lurks wandering around, batteries low, powering down.

5B
All the ghosts flail about. Looking for the nooks and searching for the cranny's. Like poached egg white. Swooshing around a pan. The electricity starts, tradition. Spectre's are hiding now the sweet sound scared 'em. The sound subsides and the lasers are back, searchlights all around a very old factory. It powers up with a din and a thud, it's purpose a bump in the night. Inside the machine springs bounce slowly but I don't know why. Like breathing but mechanical, up and down and up and down lungs fill and deflate, the spirits chatter, free now, as the sounds wind down before one last up up up and away.

Here's Brian Eno's forty years old "Music for Airports", which Pogo mentioned as a true masterpiece:

If you try to order one of the 234 unsigned boxes this message appears to agree with:

PLEASE READ:
OGILALA NOTICE *
I understand that my order will not be personalized.
I understand that all sales are final. No returns, exchanges or refunds on the exclusive packages
I understand that minor delays can occur (though not expected).
I understand the shipdate is October 13th (the Album release date)

WTF has "Ogilala" to do with this box?
Sadfully you won't find an explanation on the "*"-mark...


The same message appears when ordering the signed box.

Oh Billy, reviewing your own record on the interwebs. He must've been trying to kill time whilst watching Paw Patrol with lil' Auggie.

OK, in light of Solara's success and the imminent tour, I think we've all lost sight a little bit of what truly matters: a groundbreaking 5x LP performance of Siddartha by WPC feat. a personal stylophone and a WPC hat and a custom art print all housed in a custom art box by Linda Strawberry.

Last documented inventory audit was done by my fellow nobleman CAIC on 3/20/18.

Since that time - so we are talking 3 months:

13 Signed Remain (TWO sold!)
234 Unsigned Remain (No sales)

Those are the two he gave to James and Jimmy.
