HU Podcast #1: Presets Squabble, Virgin Lawsuit, and More 9:32 pm // Tuesday, April 15, 2008Posted by chris in advertising, australia, billy corgan, legal, linda strawberry, lisa harriton, mexico, podcast, the presets, tour.
As previously alluded to, my name is Chris, and I am here to announce the latest addition to the HU universe: the HU Podcast. Each episode, the distinguished panel and myself will discuss the latest news and rumors surrounding the Smashing Pumpkins. While the blog is a great way to get information out quickly, I hope that the podcast will allow us to go a little deeper into the news and share our opinions on the events of the week. See the end of this post to find out how you can become a part of the show.
Until we are listed in the iTunes Music Store, you can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes or your podcatcher of choice using the following link: http://www.hipstersunited.com/blog/podcast/rss.xml.

Note: Due to technical difficulties, we had problems keeping Andrew on the line for the show and the last 5 minutes of the Virgin lawsuit discussion were lost. Each show we will strive to improve our audio and connection quality to bring you the most informative and entertaining show we can.

Wake Up with Billy 4:36 pm // Monday, April 14, 2008Posted by apm in advertising, billy corgan, news.
As mentioned here last month, the Smashing Pumpkins are taking part in the “Body By Milk” ad campaign. They made their debut today as the latest featured artist of the month at the Body By Milk website. Included at the website are the usual MP3 (Bring the Light, Starz, Tarantula) and desktop wallpaper downloads. But also included is a “Wake Up Call” feature where you can sign up yourself (or a friend?) to receive a phone call from The B0lly himself. Amaze your friends!
“Hey! Hey! This is Billy Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins. Get up and drink some milk. Come listen to us at BodyByMilk.com.”
Also of note: The “The” returns!
