Yeah, what's going on with his book? That's the project I'm most looking forward to... Although I hope he drops that shit about using "fake names". No rock-star biographies take that route and I can see his book bombing if he sticks to that idea.

Would be fun to find out, who's behind those names.
Netphoria could get new reputation on it!

If he'd then could write as raw as in his old journal messages...

The first mention of "the book" is actually on the back flap of Blinking With Fists (2004).

Everything good is abandoned and everything shit sees a release?

Not that these books would be "good" per say, but still. Better than listening to musical cheese.

The editors on Wikipedia swear that the Teargarden project is still going strong when it's been painfully obvious that Billy abandoned that years ago now.

In all reality we only got 10, maybe 12 if you count the instrumentals, songs out of the 44 he promised to release "for free" on the SP website.

Oh yeah, I remember interviewers asking whether Oceania was part of TG, and Billy would meekly reply something like "It's an album within an album". Caught in his own web of announcements and failed projects.

To be fair, the people who call out for 1979 etc are fucking idiots.

Have you ever read his blogs posts. Now imagine that spread over 2000 pages. There is no way in hell he will ever put out a good book.

The fan club and lyrics sheets from SD is the earliest I've found. Then we get the Adore documentary and Gish month.

I'm pretty sure if we could go back to the first shows Billy would promising his first fans something that he never delivered.

Why did they call out a "Gish"-month in 1999? A second reissue, another remaster?

That wasn't a failure of Billy Corgan, but D'arcy's guilt for then leaving the band.
