    Billy Corgan's Wrestling Career May Become a Reality Show
    Billy Corgan is a busy dude these days. Like, really busy. He recently performed an eight-hour synth-jam and just announced that he's working on not one, but two Smashing Pumpkins records for next year. And there's also his wrestling league, Resistance Pro. Variety reports that AMC, home to such classic programming as Mad Men and Breaking Bad, is developing an unscripted reality show about Corgan's league.

    At the risk of stating the very obvious: this will be awesome (and much better than developing a show about his tea shop). Details are scarce, but the Variety article describes the unscripted "Untitled Billy Corgan Wrestling Project" series as "pulling back the curtains on the pro-wrestling world as he takes over creative direction for the independent wrestling company Resistance Pro."

    In related Pumpkins/TV news, former guitarist James Iha penned the score to a new sci-fi series on Hulu called Deadbeat, which premieres on April 9.
    Whut?
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Awesome list, Asha. I'm going to be 33 this year, so that song has come back into my life lately.
    Sometimes I think the so-called "experts" actually are experts.

    According to iTunes and Last.fm my top 10 Pumpkins songs are:

    Raindrops + Sunshowers
    Stand Inside Your Love
    Destination Unknown
    Perfect
    Muzzle
    Age of Innocence
    I Am One
    (Come On) Let's Go!
    The Sacred and Profane

    I would also add 'Tonight, Tonight', 'Untitled', 'Frail and Bedazzled' and 'Perfect' to the list of favourite songs. The two albums I listen to the most are Machina/The Machines of God and Zeitgeist so this list isn't too surprising. Mostly I just listen to my playlist with the songs I like on shuffle to avoid having to skip tracks.

    I don't really have any expectations on the new album(s). I think Oceania was quite good, but I will be happy even if I just like a few songs on there.

    I remember someone telling me how amazing the Zwan album was and when I heard it I didn't feel exactly the same way. My favourites are Mellon Collie & Siamese Dream too.

    One of my favorites by the Pumpkins would have to be the James Iha penned (and sung) The Boy.

    I really like Zwan, I barely skip a single track when listening to this album which is rare for me. I also think of this record as a summer album, so I tend to dig it out around this time every year only to forget about these songs when the weather gets colder again.
