That is not the face of a man who is overly proud of what he's been working on, not to say he hasn't been working hard, but there's definitely something eating at him, maybe the music, maybe something else, but as I've mentioned before he appears to be very insecure.

It could just be the bristly state of his eyebrows.

yeah, lately [or kinda always] you get the sense he doesn't actually enjoy music, just wants to make some sort of point

gish = show all the kids in high school who beat me up that i can be successful
sd = i can write a pop song
mics = nobody said we could do a double album
adore = i don't need jimmy
machina = i can adapt to the times
zwan = i can make a big record even with indie people
zeitgeist = fuck James and d'arcy
och = fuck jimmy
mtae = fuck everyone but jeff
shiny = fuck all the fans that say i can't still make a good record

i feel like if i was making an album it wouldn't be 'i got x done today' but more like... man i got this great take or my vocals need to be softer or something.

i mean it sounds like he's building stuff with his hands or something, the way he talks about it. or finishing maths worksheets

A lot of people say that they wouldn't care about Billy's shitty, abusive behavior/personality if the music was actually good, but I honestly think I'd probably like Oceania a lot more if I didn't know Billy Corgan was such an insufferable dick.

I'd probably like it a lot more if it wasn't the audio equivalent of living-room wallpaper

Damn, that was a close one. I was about to put the smackdown on your ass for that hyphen when I realized living-room was functioning as an adjective.


Whew!

honestly, maybe it'd be best if Vol 3 just get the BOTTLEG treatment

no over-mixing, no plasticizing of the drums. just let that shit leak as is

then we'll decide if our minds & bodies are ready for the holy grail that is Shiny & Oh So Bright Volume fucking 4 or not

Shiny 3 is music from at least four decades from now.
No one here will ever get it's majestic brilliance.

I see and acknowledge you as my foe! Surely, you must be allied with Reprise's anti-Oxford comma horde!

#1 There are rules.
#2 My seminal forefathers established the aforementioned rules.
#3 I fight to defend them, tooth and nail!
