Default Christmas Cheer with Billy Corgan




Oh fuck off! Seriously now … that’s a stupid thing to say. Seriously. You’re basically saying that I’m willing to be coddled. Do I seem like someone who wants to be coddled? Am I coddling you? ... At the bottom of it, I don’t give a fuck; if I gave a fuck I wouldn’t make this kind of music and I’d be sitting here saying all the right things, like a pop star.

Oh my God. I hope you and I are never locked in an elevator together. Because you would either kill me or I would kill you.

***

“Monuments” is the pivot point. It’s like I had to prove to myself I could juggle 14 balls to go, “I don’t need to do that anymore.” “Monuments” is the end of that guy, the end of that trained monkey, the end of the rat in the cage. It’s over. Done. Goodbye.

***

Wait, sorry to be a jerk, but don't forget I put out a free album in 2000. People skip over that point.

Thank you. But people drop the name Radiohead to me and I point out I put out a free album about five, seven years before that. As far as I'm concerned we were the first ones to cross that bridge.

We have this ubiquitous pop that's in the f---ing way that's like a f---ing monolith and god forbid anybody says anything negative about a pop star because of social media. And then over here we have the indie ranks kissing the ass of the pop stars and you have no middle. And you have people like me in the middle totally exposed because we won't play either end of the street. But why I am still here?

Good question, Billy.

I like how Christmastime is actually about getting gifts instead of bullshitting about helping the poor and stuff

It's very nostalgic and pure, sort of

We all thought that video was pretty hysterical when it came out in, what was it, 2006. Now it's kind of scary how spot on it was.

It's funny because i was thinking yesterday how it would be about time or SP to put out a xmas record. I had no idea he'd done a xmas song.

Funny how almost any artist that's been around for at least fifteen years will at some point most likely record a xmas song. It's like you have to.

no.

Calm down. I haven't bought a SP record since Machina. Even if i just realised the song was released on a xmas compilation in 1997. I've never been into any band enough to care to listen to their xmas songs... I don't even get why people care about shows bootlegs...

This is the video that made him loose his shit freak out and delete his Facebook account on Christmas Eve.

Lets just say he's not a fan of it.

Hahaha wow, this exists? Where the elf have I been? Great tune I didn't even know he did and that video ... wow.

The part where the little girl looks upset that she got Zwan had me in tears.

Ahhhhhh needed a laugh, thanks netphoria

How can he deny lil' mullet Billy!?
Or the look he gives when receiving the aeroplane!

Dammit, I love this video. Finding out more on why he hates this would be great.
This could be an opportunity for SP fan-fiction if there's nothing more to dig up...

He was on Facebook talking to fans on Christmas Eve. Everyone was just picking on him, it all built up and this happened.

Quote:
FROM Tony Brunello: Why dont u use all this time on your hands to do something like....I don't know....write your first good song in the last 12 yrs?
BC: merry CHRISTMAS to me
FROM Tommes Tommsen: he´s right ;-D
FROM David Jimenez Leiva: He is so freaking right!
FROM Robin Zamora: Yeah, stop worrying about stupid riffs and focus on chord progression and vocal melodies.
BC: so, like, you mean, stop doing heavy riff songs like this Robin Zamora? And lose all the angsty singing, right? so no more songs like this, right? (posts Spangled)

FROM runo Macedo: hahahaha c'mom, it's funny, kinda rude, but funny.
BC: yes, i love to be told i suck on Christmas. always gets a good laugh out of me

FROM Vin Paul: Someone needs to find the christmas time smashing pumpkins video that was fan made from netphoria thats the best video of all time
BC: you mean the one where they call me Bolly and make fun of me? that was great!

FROM Edwin Mascorn: But critizism is healthy :-) aslong as they aint just being cunts lmao
BC: especially on Christmas! criticism helps me remember the good times with my deceased mother...

FROM Dave Williams: Billy - Any chance of the band doing a quick studio take of "Chrysanthemum" and dropping it on the internet? It's a lot to ask, but it was a great song that never made it to the Zwan show I was at.
BC: sure, coming right up...i'm sure new SP won't mind covering Zwan songs!!

FROM Carrie Thomas: What would happen if you did take music advice from a fan? Would it end up being glitter and fools gold?
BC: everyone would love me again!
Byebye Facebook.

I mean, I can't really blame you. I've recently discovered that Zeitgeist is pretty good!...though that may be in comparison to the more recent material.
