A middling revamp of Smashing Pumpkins’ middling “return to form” Zeitgeist hits the shelves tomorrow as Reprise tries to tempt fans into re-purchasing a mediocre album with the promise of “a full-length DVD documentary titled Inside The Zeitgeist” and a handful of bonus tracks–the sixth Zeitgeist “upgrade” for anyone still keeping count. As he desperately tries to make up for sluggish sales and reviews, Corgan’s probably down to banking on support from longtime fanatics, like these poor souls who have already had a taste of the Pumpkins-flavored Kool-Aid.
I wish people would revolt as much against Starbucks as much as this….go buy your $8 coffee latte crappy drinks and then you wonder why you are broke.
I personally will be going to best buy tomorrow to get this. it’s 10 [bad word removed]ing dollars. if you’re that strapped for cash, you’ve got bigger problems than what version of zeitgeist you should buy.
Unfortunately for Billy, the fan reaction has been more along these lines:
Wow! How can they make it any more appealing to STEAL THIS, or DOWNLOAD IT ILLEGALLY! Lame. I can’t believe some of you suckers think this is cool. I’m pretty sure Billy isn’t hurting for cash.
Corgan, you knucklehead, you’re only driving them into the arms of the next OiNK!
[EDIT: Thanks to the 18 people who just emailed me to point out I accidentally (and repeatedly) mispelled "Corgan" as "Corrigan." In my defense let's just say I briefly confused Billy with fellow dour bald dude Jimmy Corrigan.]
