    Some of these scalpers will lose money and be stuck with unsold tickets. Serves them right.

    Yeah, they win some and they lose some. No different than sports betting in Vegas- they just need to cover a certain percentage. Of course if they’re given the tickets then it’s a good profit.

    We all do. M2 is uneven (esp. with the bonus EPs) but it's one of my favorite albums of theirs; it sounds the most like a real band playing since MCIS, which I like as much as something like Adore, though I have no idea if it was just another SD-type affair where it's mostly Billy and Jimmy. Would be nice to have a version not sourced from vinyl after 18 or so years, judging by the couple of CD quality tracks that were released officially.

    But for real, there's a lot of speculation based on that D'Arcy interview that one of the main reasons Bill's doing this tour is that all his fucking around with wrestling organizations put him in the red financially. IIRC he's said in the past it's not cheap to even put the things out and he's not guaranteed a return on them. If we're to assume that's true and his 'legal difficulties'/'not paid for the Adore reissue' isn't a a bullshit excuse, he might not even be financially capable of putting them out at the moment.

    I doubt Billy is in the red, whatever venture he set up to get these side business ideas going may be in the red but he sure isn't, remember they as individuals are not personally liable if these business/records/tours flop, like any other good corporation/LLC.

    "Pleased to say I've wrapped up lyric writing on the 8 new @smashingpumpkins tracks, which essentially (and in theory) feeds into a much bigger project I've been planning for years now (more on that later). So it's back in the studio next week to sing and overdub guitars with JI and JS,, and hopefully get this music out to you soon! Most likely to be presented as 2 ep's before and during the tour (or possibly just after), which in itself opens the gateway to this grand (or grandiose?) idea I have. But let's just say it's as far reaching as anything we've ever done together, and with James, Jimmy, and Jeff's support (which has been amazing) I feel anything is possible. Sort of like that lyric, 'the impossible is possible...? Or was it 'the possible is impossible...'

    Fans should know by now he only releases 1/4 of the things he talks about releasing (and that's being generous).

    Day for night and tear garden as a 44 track singles release. That’s the only two I can think of. Machina is all dependent of others.

    anyways, dream setlist? I say start with a sonic assault of 3 guitars. I think that would be awesome

    I feel the same way about the Beatles. It was never the same after Pete Best left the group. That 1962 Deca bootleg is the real deal. After he left, it was never the same. Fake Beatles. And yes, I have been drinking.
