HU Podcast #74: Corgan off Facebook 8:50 pm // Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Posted by chris in facebook, jimmy chamberlin, podcast.
trackback

We made some bold predictions on the last podcast about the coming golden age of fan/band communication on Facebook…and we were dead wrong.  This week we dissected what went wrong and also found some time to discuss Jimmy Chamberlin’s new project.

Listen to the whole show (36:25)
(download)(iTunes)

Panelists
-Chris, Jason, and Alex

Topics
-A few weeks on interesting Facebook dialogue were submarined when Billy took offense to some inane fan comments.  Is there any hope for Billy with social media? (22:23)

-Jimmy Chamberlin’s work with This Skysaw remains unreleased, but for $20 you can enjoy some intense drumming beneath the relaxation therapy of self-titled “Shaman” Durek Verrett.  Do Jimmy’s recent statements change our perception of his split from the Pumpkins at all?  (7:55)

Song of the Week
-Lucky 13, Berlin, Germany; June 6th, 2007

2. cocks - 3:20 am // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

3. arpeggi - 4:55 am // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Completely agree with you guys,
thanks for the podcast
(and for THAT lucky 13)

Corgan at this point is nothing more than a pussy man parading a corpse called the Smashing Pumpkins.

5. J - 7:18 am // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Where it all started that is where it will end…

6. snowtrooper - 7:38 am // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

stop it.

7. J - 9:05 am // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

…Corgan!!!

8. rapapapa - 12:28 pm // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

@snowtrooper
start it

9. higgs boson - 1:39 pm // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

I don’t remember where but Billy has said he’s had TbK in mind for a while now so I’m pretty sure it was discussed with Jimmy, as well as the name.

10. higgs boson - 1:42 pm // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

..even before Zeitgeist*

11. jcoriha - 1:53 pm // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

I remember Billy starting to talk about the idea of TbK all the way back to post-Zwan breakup. The idea has changed a lot since then, but the premise of free music that people that choose their own tracklist dates back to at least then.

12. higgs boson - 3:43 pm // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

@HU so you’ll edit (for which I commend you for) but you keep comment #4? i don’t understand.

13. Seb - 5:11 pm // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

^ Free speech, I suppose. Haters gotta be heard too.. Unfortunately, the biggest mouths make the loudest noise..

14. joel - 7:48 pm // Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Free speech is cool .. but #4 was clearly from a braindead person.

15. Adam - 10:31 am // Thursday, January 27, 2011

comment #4 is wrong… it’s a hallowed out corpse!

16. higgs boson - 2:00 pm // Thursday, January 27, 2011

^lol you’re just a sad sad bitter man Adam. I almost feel sorry for you. That’s as close as I’ll come to giving you any of my time. Have an AWESOME day buddy!

17. JayKen - 4:16 pm // Thursday, January 27, 2011

I just ignore haters.. All they want is attention.. why give it to them? its not worth it.

18. snowtrooper - 4:58 pm // Thursday, January 27, 2011

could someone possibly get bill’s opinion on jay cutler plz? i havent heard enough about it yet.

19. Just_Erick - 9:59 pm // Thursday, January 27, 2011

I am pretty sure Adam is Billy in disguise. Man we would be trolled hard.

Fun pod-cast. Chris and Jason brought some great point’s, good stuff indeed.

20. alex - 2:12 am // Friday, January 28, 2011

“I am pretty sure Adam is Billy in disguise. Man we would be trolled hard.”

literally LOL-ed.

“Fun pod-cast.”

Thanks!

“Chris and Jason brought some great point’s”

Wait…

21. Is he one? - 9:17 am // Friday, January 28, 2011

@Just_Erick
Haha very funny. Actually it makes sense. ;-)

22. Just_Erick - 12:06 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

Sorry! Im so used to hearing Jason/Chris combo. Alex you are an awesome addition to many of the recent pod-cast. You always stay on tangent and have a good clear headed opinion. Good work man, all we need is Susan and we have the best SP pod-casters.

23. Just_Erick - 12:06 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

24. BitterT - 12:19 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

Off topic, but anyone else notice that all official pumpkin related sites are down. Main page, message board, web stream page…. something is happening finally

25. higgs boson - 12:42 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

please don’t disappoint. please don’t disappoint. please don’t disappoint. please don’t disappoint.

26. gyang333 - 12:45 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

BitterT

Yeah I noticed that as well.

If it was just the o-board, i would be worried, but since the main site is down, i am fairly absolutely certain that they are just doing a refresh, because closing the website down would be sheer stoopid.

27. rapapapa - 4:14 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

@higgs boson
go to LHC.

@Just_Erick
Susan, the one who says ‘like’ in one sentence about six times?

@BitterT
maybe new design will be on the website, everything will be updated. because the website sucked hard, while the older one was good, with all the discographies, photos etc…

28. higgs boson - 8:43 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

@rapapapa I’d love to…you payin? I’ll treat lunch ;-)

29. rapapapa - 8:55 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

@higgs boson
why not. but Im broke at the moment, so we’ll have to wait. I wonder that those bastards (scientists) are doing now on LHC. are there are any updates about that ‘project’?:D

30. rapapapa - 8:55 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

what*

31. chaja - 11:15 am // Saturday, January 29, 2011

they’re eating pizza.

32. Just_Erick - 10:31 pm // Saturday, January 29, 2011

@rapapapa
So because she says “like” she is discounted of opinion. Good thinking.

33. higgs boson - 1:00 am // Sunday, January 30, 2011

if I told you, I’d have to kill you. ready?

34. rapapapa - 6:13 am // Sunday, January 30, 2011

just_erick
jillysp is so much better. yes good thinking.like.
@higgs
and how are you planning to do that?:D

35. higgs boson - 12:14 pm // Sunday, January 30, 2011

bring back Jill!

36. BitterT - 2:35 pm // Sunday, January 30, 2011

So the sites are back and nothing happened. Figures…

37. rapapapa - 3:29 pm // Sunday, January 30, 2011

was something supposed to happen?

38. Johnny - 6:21 pm // Sunday, January 30, 2011

no, but it would have been nice if something had, wouldn’t it? Nobody wants to wait until Fall of next year. Nobody.

39. Just_Erick - 8:36 pm // Sunday, January 30, 2011

@Rapapapa
Glad you like Jill more, doesn’t make her better than Susan, both are great. Like totally…

40. BigAl6ft6 - 12:31 am // Monday, January 31, 2011

Dunno how close to legit this is but maybe, possibly, post-Z-Giest there were quotes from JC about freewheeling internet concept albums.

41. chaja - 9:29 am // Monday, January 31, 2011

like yeah. susan go away, jill too. leave only chris, with some new guests every pod cast.

42. Josh James - 10:43 am // Monday, January 31, 2011

It just drives me nuts that Susan cuts people off all the time and doesn’t even realize it.

43. higgs boson - 11:47 pm // Monday, January 31, 2011

yet she has great points and often brings a fresh perspective on things, I think she fits well. I enjoy Jill as well, I just hope she is more prepared next time and is given another chance

44. Crocus - 2:04 am // Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Nerds are allowed to cut off other nerds, as long as it’s to say something nerdier. It’s in the manual.

45. Daniel - 9:18 pm // Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Hey hipsters united, how about stirring up some news already? We’re not getting any from the Pumpkins…. :(

46. Seb - 12:17 am // Wednesday, February 2, 2011

I don’t know how I feel about this but SP has given BWBW to EA for Dead Space 2 a horror-theme video game (in commercials at least)..

47. Adam - 1:07 am // Wednesday, February 2, 2011

@45 maybe i should come back and explain in detail how billy has repeated himself numerous times in the past 4 years and is really not as progressive as he likes to claim, thereby pissing everyone off here once again.

just for ol times sake i suppose.

48. rapapapa - 10:28 am // Wednesday, February 2, 2011

I dont give a shit if they used bullet in that game. if it fits the game, why not. FOL was the biggest mistake and today in Visa. I love how Today was used in Journeyman

49. Corgan on Facebook « Hipsters United - 11:13 pm // Monday, March 14, 2011

[...] than reinstate the (OFFICIAL) Facebook page he operated during December, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan started from scratch yesterday with an ordinary personal [...]
