    It's such a damn shame to see how hollowed out this country has become. Life is so much easier today, but it's so much more full of bullshit.

    These are the songs I learned to play and sing to, before I transitioned to SP songs. I remember the first song I learned all the way through was Why don't you love me (like you used to do) by Hank Sr.

    I miss the days of the old Pumpkins and I haven't listened to the new stuff since '07, but I still try to tune in to the social aspect, from time to time. As with the old LiveJournal, I'm enjoying these snippets of Billy's life. It makes us feel connected, as if we're all close friends! I hope the videos will play on, beyond the thirty days.

    If you end up in McMinnville, OR, let me know. This place is a modern anomaly of American culture, that I believe is really well rounded.

    That was a dumb question by that radio interviewer. He just asked that question in day one and now he just keeps hounding the same thing again here.

      Northernmight James has at least 3 good songs on the 'Let It Come Down' album from '97: Silver String; Lover, Lover; One and Two. The last two songs are also featured on MCIS reissue. There are a few good songs by James on TAFH (especially, "Bells"); Pieces Iscariot has a very good song by James, "Blew Away; also there is "Summer" as a b-side on one of Adore's singles; and the is "Go" on Machina II.

      The first IHA album isn't that different from Take me down. There's a new one too, which I havn't heard yet.

      Northernmight there was a type of country song he wrote that I loved but that was years ago & the last time I checked for it I couldn't find it....I'll let you know if I do

    • Northernmight
      Northernmight 2 years ago

      It IS brilliant. One of the best closer-songs i've ever heard on a disc. Very beautiful. Do you know if Iha ever made any other tracks like it? I know he made a solo-album or some such, at some point.

    U just pacified my ass yet I'm tapping my right foot 1000000 mph . WPC, ...what you do to me I can't put into words - ok calming again but bye bye sleep inevitable especially I just know it. Ahhhhh why can't I have this
    I'm so kind why why - and shying away now (if u happen to go further south and I miss this - I'll just - get a ring to wear that denotes "KICK ME" ) to remind me to live ... Hmm., and when I live I can just rotate the ring that denotes something like... "ENJOY THIS MOMENT!" (I'm going to make it)
    I think it will remind me to let go and just be - hopefully. Well anyways hi Billy
    Aah so my luck
    Why am I writing all of this on a pub forum ? Because this is what WPC does to me It's not gotten any lighter lol over the past I stopped counting the years and the tears but
    I rarely have dreams of people I never truly met - and it's always rotating the 3 reoccurring themes to each of the repetitive dreams. Boggles my mind in a very respectable way. Oh well ya know

    I have a feeling that poor Billy is going to get hounded about the original line-up possibly getting back together for a while. Lol If they end up not getting back together, so be it, but in my opinion, the original line-up was like capturing lightning in a bottle.

    • Nathan Austin
      Nathan Austin 2 years ago

      True. I just hope that if it does happen, that it will be as though no time has passed at all, but only time will tell.

    • tubenshaft
      tubenshaft 2 years ago

      sure, the meeting of the right minds at the right time makes for some great music. always has been like that. but that doesn't mean, that it would be the same, if they got back together now. it could certainly be the case, but it's not a given, is what i'm trying to say. also they were like 20 back then, 20 and hungry, now they are 50 with receding hairlines and bellies....
