Default New SP release officially announced!

https://www.stereogum.com/2252822/bi...n-the-cw/news/

Billy Corgan Starring In Wrestling Reality Show On The CW

Corgan and his wife Chloe mentioned the imminent reality show about their lives
Ceeping Up With The Corgans!

New release will be called Ceeping Up With The Corgans!
Billy keeps the intentionally misspelling going like he has on previous albums.
Who else is excited?

serious question for serious people

Corgan seems to self-identify as a goth (even though gothic rock is just one genre amongst many that his music takes some cues from and his output as a whole can't really be characterized as "goth"), so yeah, "creeping" would fit with his tall pale spooky-man stage aesthetic.

But somebody at the pitch meeting probably already suggested it, and Corgan probably already shot it down because he doesn't want to invite any more comparisons to Uncle Fester.

Two things: One, it doesn't have a name, that was a joke the article writer made

Two, the comment from a "Dr. Sean" on that article, "The Siamese Dream sounds like it could be a pretty solid sleeper hold," is a good joke

Oh I know, but I still think this happened.

An idea whose time has come often occurs to many minds at once (even to people as diverse as an internet content writer and a totally not just hypothetical studio executive). Almost like we are but conduits for divine messages that the universe is communicating to us.

But sometimes the universal consciousness speaks, and Corgan must silence it. He's been around long enough to know that humanity isn't always ready.

Billy has been doing a bit for the last two plus decades. There’s no other explanation.

I hope Billy's taking notes here. "I started that Cars And Whatever site and the psychic shockwaves were just too much; I actually invented Trump's political career, haha, not that anyone's counting, not that I care about that recognition, but anyway the website just shifted the planetary vibes in a way no one was prepared for, so I've put it aside. Ask me about it again in 70 years."

https://www.reddit.com/r/NWA/ .. .. not one hit if I search for "corgan'

https://www.reddit.com/r/TheNWA/ less than 5k members. this is peanuts. who's paying attention to the wrestling league. is it really just a money pit?

I'd be surprised if the NWA is even in the top 10 most watched wrestling promotions worldwide. I'd say he's running it at a loss and that's not likely to change.

WWE is the goliath, AEW is a very comfortable 2nd and TNA probably sits 3rd. Then you have the WWE-controlled NXT and the AEW-controlled ROH.

But that's only the "western" world - you can also consider NJPW and AJPW in Japan, CMLL and AAA in Mexico - all of which wrestling fans will seek out.

NWA probably sits somewhere in the next tier and it doesn't really have any wow factor, or even any "try it" factor. It was good to begin with but for numerous reasons it fell off a cliff and soon became unwatchable.

I don't know what his plans are for it - it might just be his "rich mans hobby" as a fan, or it might be that he hopes one day that a WWE/AEW might buy the historic brand name from him for the purposes of tape libraries. I'd say that's his only shot at making money from it, and it's unlikely at best and as the years go on, even less so.
