I still need to go buy the album. Last weekend I bought Interpol instead. This weekend I bought Minor Threat. Come on me, go buy ZWAN!!!! I had 2 tests this week though, so I was busy "studying". Ok, I virtually didnt study at all, but I feel better about myself if I'm not out having fun when I should be studying. I'll try to go get it this week.

400th post, yippee. I rule.

Sheesh, hippie. Sounds like you need to spend some money too.

Radio show? Where? Can I listen?

are you calling me a hippie?

*senses the need for another avatar change coming soon*

i don't look like a hippi YET. still in that escaped convict state.

the radio station is streaming online...i'm still a bit nervous about telling people to listen to me though, even though i avoid talking if at all possible, so you'd hardly hear me...remind me to post it in about a month. by then anyone who cared now will have forgot, or if they haven't (either cos they were actually interested or i keep talking about it and if you read anyhting i say you'll be constantly reminded) i'll have got over this initial fear of being heard on the radio...

Yes, I finally bought the album and have listened to it. Sure I've only heard it once, but I'm going to have to say that I really, really like this thing. Maybe it's that it's so upbeat, I dont know.

I really think I like it more than most all Smashing Pumpkin albums. That's my opinion as of now.

PS- IWasBored, now that you got the haircut you need to get this album. Remember, you get stickers AND the album. Now that's a good deal.

i know i need to buy the album, we didn't get multiple copies at the radio station, and listening to it there isn't enough...

and hey, you can't go wrong with stickers...i guess...don't know where i'd put them though...

if it's as good as it seems to be, it will probably take a while before you're sick of it

billy corgan has always been a christian.

true, his lyrics in the past were more melancholy and bittersweet, with less focus on faith, but the lyrics with Zwan are not that radically different from what they ever were, go listen to a song from Machina like "with every light" or "for martha" from Adore

i keep hearing everyone say that "honestly" is such a nice, happy song, but when you say things like, "is it true, do i care?" what are you actually saying about your faith and love?

honestly, a single wrong is not enough
to cover up the pain in us

-

i'll break your heart so you must ask
is this the way to get us back
i don't know, honestly




sure, billy is much more optimisitc and more at peace now then ever before, but don't be fooled by the chorus, i always laughed at people saying songs like "perfect" and "today" were happy tunes, when in fact one was about suicide and the other was about divorce

i think "heartsong" probably sums things up as well as anything...

i'm up to my tricks
i know they seem cold

but heart songs
are all that i am


NEWS FLASH!

billy corgan has been writing hearsongs for the last 15 years

"el sol" begins with,

empty-armed
and half a soul to go


then the telling lines...

now everybody knows
that i've been hanging down so low
'cause now i'm feeling up
soon i'll be feeling out so cold


even a song like "declarations of faith" is slightly melancholy, yes corgan is embracing a brighter outlook, but he's still very sullen and self-depracating at times, just now there seems to be hope in his reflections...

ever wonder why they kill the weak ones, baby
'cause no one really cares
someone ought to spot a good reason, baby
just why we're really here...

whatever... kiss me alone


anyway, that's my story and i'm sticking to it

Good golly, please dont quote Colin Quin. Yikes.

On all of your other comments, I agree. I just dont agree with quoting Colin Quin.

Colin Quin WAS on SNL. He hasnt been on for like 2 or 3 yrs now. I really like SNL now. It's the first time it's been really good since the early '90's in my opinion. I've always been a big SNL fan though.
