It's not really a fair comparison, but this nin/Reznor release is $300, and includes:

* 6 LP set on 180g vinyl
* Hi-def audio download
* Glossy coffee table book
* Razor blade usb stick containing the album
* Poster
* Signed and hand numbered by Trent and Atticus Ross

Sure, there's probably a price break for a run of 3,000 -but still...

Where is this 141 number coming from? Are the actually advertising that this "labor of love" has not even shifted half of its available copies?

go to the zuzu website and try to order 500 copies.
you get this message:

Sorry, we only have 358 of that item available.
so 142 copies have been sold already.

also:

  • I understand that all sales are final. No returns, exchanges or refunds on the exclusive vinyl packages
  • I understand that minor delays can occur (though not expected) and that shipping is from December 12-19th.
  • I understand I only qualify for the special 'Christmastime' record player if a tea is added to my Siddartha vinyl package. 1 ticket per online order.

The last one, No. 142 wasn't even sold, has a lucky winner!

Will there be much people left after the Christmas gift season and without the chance to win a turntable then, to buy this overpriced set?

I see a release of Pre-Gish records being farer away.
Or B0lly tries to sell them both in a bundle for an extra price...

so last night's Shameless episode "Requiem for a Slut", the mother Monica dies. At the funeral the eldest daughter, Fiona, reads some lines from the book Siddhartha.

SINE.

If it were up to me you'd all be perma banned, leaving only cropumpkins and me. Then this board would be racially purged and south slaviclly pure.

After a while I'd ban cropumpkins too if he failed to assimilate into Greater Serbia.

Epic detective work on that ordering 500 thing there, guys. Sarcasm aside, love that the site produces such a ridiculously transparent reply.

Wonderful and understandable and (surprisingly enough) saddening for BC all at once.

Again, my question - what's next for these things? He's gonna have a closet full of them come January 1st. Deep discount time? Or a must buy one of those to get the limited edition copy of the Metro DVD where they only produce X of them, where X = (500 - Copies of Siddhartha sold)?

143 remaining true BC / SP-fans left and an idiot who won by not counting correctly 1 to 4...

This stagnation already after a week, still now with a turntable to win, needs IMMEDIATE action by adding some freshly burned digital discs too...

Billy Corgan sues L.A. distributor for breach of contract
May 30, 2014

Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan is suing an L.A.-based music distributor over unpaid revenues.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the breach of contract suit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday against Rocket Science -- the distributor behind the Pumpkins' "Teargarden by Kaleidyscope" project.

Corgan says he entered into an agreement with Rocket Science at the start of 2010, but by September 2011 the company had stopped sending revenue payments. He also claims that the distributor's main executive, Kevin Day, was mishandling money and using business funds for personal expenses.

The suit says the exact amount Corgan is owed can't be determined without an accounting of Day's receipts and expenses.

This time he would have to sue his own tea shop...

How about suing the pressing plant for the bad vinyl?

Which fans?

http://www.stereogum.com/1724000/bil...-is-gone/news/

...Corgan was asked who the typical Smashing Pumpkins fan is and he replied, “Honestly I think the fanbase is gone.” He continued: “I know it’s a prickly way to put it, but I don’t think there are fans anymore. I would define a fan as someone who explores the depth of the artist’s work, and allows the artist to show you something. It’s not up to the artist to walk you by the hand. I don’t think there are that many of those people who exist. I’d say they’re in the low thousands.”

They are lower than fivehundred now for the rat in a cage in the sinking ship...

They should have paid you to buy it.

Billy needs to start paying us to listen to his albums. For myself I would be content with a dub per song, maybe a special deal like an ounce of trainwreck for ann entire lp.

I'm reasonable. Id be willing to work with him

For siddartha tho id need a qp and tons od edibles and wax.

Maybe if Billy held our hand, he could have lead us away from the ocean of shit he let us walk into.

What a condescending answer. He takes no responsibility that maybe his songwriting just went to shit or made horrible decisions. Perhaps people don't want to listen to music they do not like just because it was written by Billy. Not everything he touches is gold.
