Billy Corgan is out of his bald-ass mind.

After taking out a full page ad in today's Chicago Tribune, you have to wonder if Corgan is just full of himself or completely dedicated to the world of rock 'n roll.

You decide.

In other news, though, he seems to want to get the Smashing Pumpkins going again. I just wonder what they would sound like after all these years (okay, five). Dated? Groundbreaking? Should they have remained broken up? Will they kick ass? Are the other members even interested?

I, for one, was a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins. I had this shirt that I wore and wore and wore until it was the most comfortable thing and a stunning shade of faded grey (in contrast to its original state -- rigid and black).

Someone stole that shirt, and it still makes me sad.

The part that worries me the most is that he wants to "renew and revive" SP. That could mean a million things. All new members besides Billy himself?

If they did in fact get Darcy, Iha, and Chamberlain together again and they actually managed to put up with each other long enough, they had better put out a rock record. Not some fluff "we're trying to fit back into the industry" record, but a stripped down, "Hello, we are the Smashing Pumpkins, remember us?" record.

I was really really excited when I read this article. However, its a bit in vain, its usually nice to announce these plans once you have the band back together and already have a few new songs in the bag. We'll wait and wait for something to come of this, kind of like waiting for a shopping mall to be built.

I heard a snippet of one of his latest songs on ESPN, of all places. I really don't know that the band, reconstituted, will have the focus of "Gish" or "Siamese Dream." He may have to come to grips with the fact that he really peaked at age 25 and try to adjust accordingly.

And his little leaflet doesn't sound like somebody who's unhinged, but somebody who needs money.
