14 September 2012 - 01:59 AMBilly Corgan Talks About The Past, The Pumpkins, And Tea
By Jen Carlson in Arts & Entertainment on September 13, 2012 11:19 AM
"If you were stuck on a desert island with a really persistant and annoying interviewer, and you had to answer one question to get a canoe, would it be about Courtney Love, James Iha, or Steve Albini?" I was planning on asking Billy Corgan this question at the end of our interview, with the idea being that I'd then ask him a question about one of those people... but I decided not to. The Smashing Pumpkins frontman often gets lambasted for saying things—saying things about old bandmates, old rivals, or saying things like: "The fact of the matter is that I’ve written more hit songs than just about anybody in my generation." But, the fact of the matter is, he really did write so many of the great songs of his generation. And, the fact of the matter is, he doesn't really need to talk about them anymore. And, the fact of the matter is, he probably doesn't want to be asked about people he's had personal issues with in the past. Below he talks about sentimentalism, his late friend Florence, and, of course, the music.

16 July 2012 - 07:50 PMAccording to Google Trends the top ten countries where people searched for Smashing Pumpkins content in the last 12 months are:
2. New Zealand
5. United States
On the other hand, the top 10 cities where these searches originated are:
1. Lisbon, Portual
2. Chicago, IL
3. Los Angeles, CA
4. Santiago, Chile
5. San Francisco, CA
6. Brisbane, Australia
7. Mexico City
8. Sydney, Australia
9. Melbourne, Australia
10. Atlanta, GA
As for the language employed in these searches, English is the #1 language of users, followed closely by Italian, Spanish, Finnish and Portuguese.
While this shows the diversity of Smashing Pumpkins fans scattered across all continents, I was wondering why Portugal has recently become the centre of so much SP google traffic in the last 12 months?
I searched the google trends for Smashing Pumpkins individual albums. While Oceania is a very broad term with geographical implications, the album did have an impact on the google traffic of June 28.
Gish is a popular search in Belarus. This probably has more to do with a term in the Belarusian language, I believe it has little to do with the Pumpkins album, but the announcement of the Gish and Siamese Dream reissues did become a search highlight in late-April 2011.
Mellon Collie is a top search in Portugal as well as in Milan, Italy and the main language employed in these searches is Italian.
Finally, the Billy Corgan search showed no surprises as the majority of the searches originated in Chicago and were typed in English.
20 June 2012 - 07:07 PMThe purpose of the thread is to document Oceania's performance in the album charts of the U.S. and other countries where data is available. While this may not be too important, it's nice to see our dear album at the top...
It's too early for any chart data, but right now, 24 hrs after release day, Oceania is the #1 selling album on amazon.com in the categories of 'Alternative Rock' and 'Adult Alternative'.
