LiveJournalist is gonna be a graphic designer, barring screwup 12:10 pm // Friday, March 6, 2009Posted by jjb in amusing, art, jimmy chamberlin, livejournal.
LJ user oh_sectumsempra maps out her connections:
David is good friends with Frank Quinto.
Frank Quinto is the new archivist for the Smashing Pumpkins.
Frank is also really good friends with Jimmy Chamberlin.
Jimmy Chamberlin (drummer for SP) is one of the greatest drummers in the world.
Jimmy Chamberlin also has a solo project that will be having a new album out in the future.
Frank saw my SP poster, sent it to the SP webmaster, who in turn said it was awesome and wanted to show Billy Corgan.
(No idea if Billy saw it yet or not)
Frank decided that since that poster was so awesome, that I should help design for Jimmy’s next album.
I’ve been brainstorming ideas for a while and think I’ve finally got a good idea.
I can’t screw this up.
UPDATE: Oh noes! The entry has been taken down. (Did she screw it up already?)
Replays run for fans of NBA’s Golden State Warriors 2:11 pm // Wednesday, October 22, 2008Posted by jjb in amusing, basketball, batman and robin, livejournal, video.
LiveJournalist pollytrance reports from Oakland:
YOU SEE I TOLD YOU.
Yes, I know the quality sucks, but truth be told, I am happy I got it at all. Some stoner buttmunches stole my seat at half-time and right when the little preview thing that I knew I wanted to record came on, their morals got the better of them and they walked right in front of me to return to their shitty seats. I should have been a bitch and made them wait, but I was too excited.
Anyway– YES. SONG FROM 1998 BY THE SMASHING PUMPKINS! USED IN THE PREVIEW MONTAGE FOR OPENING NIGHT BY THE WARRIORS.
Airborne Gish events induce love, hate for Corgan 1:25 am // Wednesday, June 25, 2008Posted by jjb in blogging, gish, livejournal, releases.
It’s blogger-vs.-blogger today in the, um, blogosphere. In light of his smelly plans to revisit Smashing Pumpkins music from the late 1980s and early 1990s, what does Billy Corgan deserve? Google-indexed random bloggers D.A.N. (of soulofrocknroll.com) and boldensghost (a LiveJournalist!) couldn’t disagree more:
I have a ton of respect for Billy Corgan because he seems to really be in it for the love of the music, and for the fans, and that respect continues with the new upcoming releases scheduled for the band… First, there’s a new album planned for the up coming year… Second, they’re putting together a DVD detailing their residency at the Fillmore from this past year… AND if that all wasn’t enough… A planned Pre Gish/Gish box set has been announced… and a Gish Tour?!… I like when bands put out updated and expanded versions of their albums, or commemorative versions etc, because I think they’re great gifts to the fans. I like all the additional features, it’s like a behind the scenes look at what was going on whether it was demo takes, additional tracks or whatever.
The oceans of insincerity keep getting deeper and deeper with Billy Corgan and his infinite EGO. Apparently he is doing a “Gish” box set, which frankly while being one of my top ten albums, I’m having a very hard time mustering up even a grunt of displeasure of that news. I’m curious but I don’t know if I’ll buy it, to tell you the truth. The thing that pisses me off about all of this is that I’ve heard that egotistical sack of puss talk about how he doesn’t care about the old stuff or the fans should just get over it. Now he’s putting out a “Gish” box set and he’s going to TOUR the album playing it in it’s entirety. Wow. F-You, Billy Corgan you piece of disingenious crap.
Don’t you realize?? 10:41 pm // Monday, May 12, 2008Posted by jjb in amusing, livejournal, the simpsons.
In an excerpt from his forthcoming doorstopper Ha-Ha Logic, LiveJournalist mickelwhite educates the “springfield” community:
You see, ‘Smashing Pumpkins’ is the name of the band that Billy Corgan is in, so he’s identifying himself by his band name. ‘Smashing’ is also a verb, so it seems to Homer that Billy is identifying his actions as ‘smashing pumpkins’. That is why Homer replies the way he does, because he is describing his own actions; smiling politely is exactly what he is doing.
Homer doesn’t seem to understand what Billy is saying about the statement he’s making, he’s just doing a silly stunt that he’s been told he qualifies to do. He also doesn’t understand that Billy is a member of this band, that’s exactly why he is smiling politely; he has no idea how else to respond.
It’s a small blogosphere after all 12:10 am // Thursday, March 27, 2008Posted by jjb in amusing, blogging, livejournal, releases.
I started reading this just now, and my internal reaction was something like, “Wow, these two random people upon which I just stumbled via Google blog search are going into a lot of detail as they speculate about what recordings might be among the archival releases tentatively planned by Billy.”
And then, I realized one of the two “random” people was HU’s own pins. Dude. You gotta take that passion for the subject and let it out here, where we can all benefit from it!
All those in…favor? 11:09 am // Friday, December 28, 2007Posted by jjb in american gothic, billy corgan, livejournal.
LiveJournal user danasaur calls Billy Corgan “annoyingly stupid and obnoxious” and asks his friends to determine the most reasonable response to the impending release of American Gothic. LJ’s ear_salad gives what has long been America’s winning answer:
I will steal it, listen to it, like it and still talk shit about billy corgan.
But are they more like smoking or thumbsucking? 11:24 pm // Sunday, December 16, 2007Posted by jjb in amusing, livejournal.
In 2008, euphoria1287 resolves to…

Find a better audioslave.
Pay for my making graphics on time.
Give up smashing pumpkins.
Tell my family about video games.
Find a new grunge.
