Christmas 1996: Received Melloncollie and the Infinite Sadness Double.  I will admit, though hesitantly, that I listened to more Bush that Christmas but the steaming pile of shit that Razor Blade Suitcase was became evident and while I have owned MCATIS on four seperate occasions, RBSC became a fire frisbee a few months later.

 

Spring 1997: Bought Gish, Pisces Iscariot & Siamese Dream, the latter of which made my heart implode. I was in love with the lyrics, the guitar heavy sound and the gripping emotions of Billy. Whether it was raging screeches thorugh the mic, jubilant harmony or gloomy melodies. It was all very VERY good.

 

Fall 1998: A foreign exchange student from Australia tells me of a Pumpkins concert he saw in Melbourne. A close friend gives me a copy of Vieuphoria.  I start dreaming of seeing The Smashing Pumpkins live.

1999: Four different people give me a copy of Adore, each citing a different reason for giving up the albulm. "They changed. This isn't the Smashing Pumpkins I know. I'm not into goth music. I'm moving and I couldn't sell this CD, you can have it."  I love this CD. I love all Billy's music and all the evolutions The Smashing Pumpkins went through, musically and as a band. All except....

 2000: "Rock and Roll is Dead." What the fuck...........................

My dreams of seeing Today, Mayonaise, Hummer, Zero, Bullet with Butterfly Wings, Tonight, Tonight, Rhinoceres........ Toast........................
