Slightly above the level of daily deaths we had for most of last year, before the vaccine? Party time, baby!
I mean, it doesn’t affect me, I don’t give a fuck if unvaxxed people die.

Yes, I think we all took this as a given about you, ninsp

Thank you for joining so many in opting out of your baseline duty to society

Cool

That Guardian article, Christ, I'd forgotten. "'There is something mighty suspicious about declaring an emergency for something that has yet to show itself to be a grand pandemic,' Corgan wrote."

This fucking genius. Every time a region declares an emergency before a hurricane/blizzard/volcanic eruption hits them, Billy heads for the panic room. One of two things tells him the FEMA stormtroopers have passed safely by his house: either his intuition makes his head tingle, or he notices that the frantic banging on the door by his wife and kids has stopped.

Except it does affect you, because unvaxxed people dying puts pressure on health services, they’re more likely to create a mutation which beats the vaccine and they pressure government’s into draconian measures like lockdown.

Yeah. The hospital my wife works at has been at or near capacity for months on end now. Enjoy 24 hour ER waits, waiting days for an ICU bed, etc.

Billy said on one of his recent IG updates that tour discussions were ongoing, but that the MCIS tour might not happen (which means it definitely won't happen).

My guess is it's not about Billy's vax status as much as it is his unwillingness to tour venues with a vaccine requirement. I would bet big money that he whined about the jab but got it ASAP.

What makes you think she is reason? From what i've seen (ok, not much) she comes off as just another Upper East Side self-entitled kid.

Well, I would hope she wouldn't want the father of her children to die gasping for air due to some stupid anti vax stance. He's not a spring chicken anymore, his age range means the risk increases.

The rabbithole of Guardian linked articles is quite something

According to Cox’s original statement – which was aired on Friday at a show in North Carolina and regarded a 2007 support tour slot with the Smashing Pumpkins – Corgan’s bodyguard reportedly cornered him and said, “What the fuck do you think you’re doing? This is Mr Corgan’s water,” after Cox took a bottle. He then alleges that he was shoved against a wall, before being called a “shitty little insignificant fucking indie rock band” by the rock frontman. He says that the whole incident was videoed.

I assume Billy wants to tour because he wants the money. arenas a lot more profitable than selling overpriced coffeehouse shit

Kind of astonished to find I don't hate 'em, like they're silly but also leaning in to his lanky weird frame

Makes him look a bit like a (world is a) vampire really, and I'm just going to pretend that was the intention

Haven't seen a picture of him wearing something I thought was flattering on him since... I don't know, that Ganesh sweater he was rockin' in Zwan probably
