Not unless a millionaire is a collector. There is an art show on the 25th and I am bringing it with me I am putting a caaaaarrrraaaaazzzzzyyyyy price on it… Figured I’d message the two people on the forum who want that record first. My house is in foreclosure, so if somebody really really would appreciate it enough to spend a stupid amount on it, how could I say no?
You know I wouldn’t let it go for under something rediculously crazy. I love it too much. But if somebody has lots of money and really really really wants it, well then they must really want it, and I couldn’t deny taking them for every penny they’ve got to turn my baby into just another item on my wall. You know I love it because I spent close to $100 getting it professionally matted and framed. I don’t even have photos of my second daughter framed in my house!!!
I went to buy my tickets today for the HOB show in Orlando…. $45 a ticket, plus TicketBastard fees… it will be $110 for my husband and I to go…I just about pulled out my emergency credit card… but it is going to have to wait. I have a freaking lien on my bank account from a creditor right now… So I really should be a good girl and NOT go…. right?
I can’t wait to see how the new bassist plays out!
that was you Della?
last time I was on stage it was for beauty and the beast
elementary school days [/quote:3agqyq7g]
Awesome they are doing a Beauty and the Beast production at that theater in July/Aug!
Last time I was on THAT stage I was 11 and doing a fashion show for Heritage Weekend. Other than that I haven’t really done much on stage…. I’m pretty shy
yep i got that email. i think that is so cool of him to do! i was willing to pay, i didn’t expect it to be free but it’s cool! i never thought he was trying to do it for the money. i think i know billy better than that. he truly loves making music and he wants to let his closest fans be involved in the writing process. i love this idea, i hope it happens. they said there’s a chance it might not… i am keeping my fingers crossed that it does! this will be so great![/quote:2ah1b7si]
Agreed, I was completely ready to pay. I signed up right away. I think it is a brilliant idea. A way to bridge the gap between musician and fan. A way to give us answers before we ask. A way to let us into his world. I am completely grateful that he is willing to do this.
Has everybody seen \"As a reward for joining us in the construction of this project, Billy Corgan has decided to give free access to the material for all those currently signed up for this newsletter.\"
I’m SO excited. I really hope they go forward with it. I haven’t read the last 6 pages of info, but I am just assuming that most of the people here are excited about it as well and on board with it. I can’t see you guys being the type who think it’s just another way to make money
that was good della [/quote:2wi4jzz9]
Thanks rose, it was a lot of work but a lot of fun!!!!
Hey guys, I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you. I’ve been in WV on and off for two months, and when I’m up there I’m working and don’t have much time to be online. Also, while I was up there I orchestrated my parent’s 25th anniversary party. I rented a historic theater in their town and I produced and entire \"talent\" show. One of my parts was playing Christine for a Phantom of the Opera part. I lip sanc it though, there is no way I could hit Sarah Brightman notes. I just wanted to share a clip of it with you guys. It was such an awesome party. I also did a Riverdance skit

Pmm never got back to me about selling original SP fan art

My faith in Pmm is forever destroyed haha
But a contest here would be great. Since I won the last one, I could sit this one out and offer myself up to help judge it

Since I’m a \"newer\" fan….I don’t really know. I’d have to say Adore. He seemed so dark and mysterious

I just bought a 20th Anniversary tour crew T-shirt
I didn’t have the $$ to buy a T-shirt when I went to the concert, and it isn’t online for me to purchase… This one will have to do for now
He might also be struggling with man’s doctrines of Christianity?
The surrealism in these paintings seem to point to some serious issues that this artist must have dealt with. They are all overtly sexual in nature, even the last one. The artist seems to struggle with issues of his own sexuality and probably even some family members, and possibly abuse or brutality of some sort.
This is what I am guessing. I’ve never heard of him before
There are only a few albums that I never skip around… any of these albums, as soon as a song comes to it’s close I already start singing the next track. There are tons of SP songs that I do that too, but not as much as these four
Third Eye Blind (I guess it was the first one with the hand covering the person’s face)
Cartel (it’s a white album cover…I got it at a concert where they opened for New Found Glory)
No Doubt-Return of Saturn
Neutral Milk Hotel-The Aeroplane over the Sea
I’m Daniella, 23 from FL. I’m married and have two awesome girls. My interests are SP, photography and watercolors. I’m newer here because I was more of an observant fan until my first SP concert… and then I found this place and these people turned me into an spfreak
I hate huge venue concerts. I think the largest one that I’ve gone to is No Doubt/Blink 182 at the Nissan Pavilion… and it was pointless to sit so far away that you could hardly see the band unless you watched the TV screen. I like the smaller venue tours that SP did in 08…. now if only I could convince them to come to itty bitty places like The Social
Agreed, I’d love the 4 day residency that Billy mentioned…. since he has family in FL, he better come here!
I had a really crappy night,
So getting to finally download this has made me at least feel better.
I like this song better than GLOW. I think it has more movement, more shifts in the sound. I agree that there are a few flat parts, but the overall feeling makes me want to get up and move. I’ve love to hear this one live!
"download this song" it’s a 7mb file, but you can’t download it until Feb 1[/quote:2dxjopcg]
the song huh? 7 MB- sounds promising. maybe the full song?[/quote:2dxjopcg]
It took me a couple tries to get the text to show up[/quote:2dxjopcg]
I just tried making my own edit, but the fucking browser or my connection can’t keep up, so I have no clue what it’s really doing. Shame, I would have really tried to edit something awesome.[/quote:2dxjopcg]
Mine is spazzing out right now too. I keep having to restart everything… but it’s probably because my husband is on my laptop gaming online and taking up all our bandwidth
