Much like actual Philosophy undergrad students, when Billy Corgan posts blog entries, he's so sincere-but-annoying that I'm not sure if I want to give him a hug or yell, "Are you messing with me? What's your problem, pal?"
Couched in the latest ramblings of The Bald One (ever notice how often journalists employ this cutesy moniker? it kind of pisses of me off, yet here I am, using it like a sucker) was the news that Smashing Pumpkins will release a new EP, American Gothic, on January 2nd. Sweet! The set of acoustic songs will be released exclusively - initially, at least - via iTunes.
