I'm pretty sure that I would love Jellyfish, but I'm not too familiar with them. Here are some links to check out, with some history, song clips, etc. To hear the clips at AllMusic I think you need to register but it's free. The AllMusic Bio: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:99n8...

Any Love For Jellyfish?

I just got back my Jellyfish - "Fan Club" Boxset http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00006ALDR/gloriousnoise-20/ref=nosim from a friend who I'd loaned it to over a year ago and I've been listening to it incessantly. They were such an amazing band, especially in concert judging by the 2 di...

I'll be curious to hear your thoughts when you finish it. Keep us posted!

Cool to see I'm not alone in my thoughts too. It's one of a very few where the movie outshines the book, IMHO at least.

2. after i heard that he'd go in the studio and re-record the other members' parts after they'd gone home, the name "billy corgan" started being equated with "sorry-ass punk bitch" in my mind... He probably figured that if Paul McCartney could do it then so could he, because he's just as good a pro...

Re: Billy Corgan: Twat

There was a Faustian bargain I could not make. I could have you mock me for wearing funny clothes that I could deal with. But I couldn't deal with actually standing in the light of my own musical power. That's the difference now. It's like, okay, no more of that, you're done. Billy, get over yourse...

A few years ago, this kid Daniel Pappas sent us human shit to our po box. But dude… we didn’t even open the box with the shit in it or anything. It would have been way crazier if you would have found out where we lived, and shit on our porch or something. Well, now that we know where you live, mayb...

Recently finished reading " All The President's Men " by Woodward & Bernstein, which coincidentally was rather timely with the unmasking of Deepthroat last week. A fascinating book that reinforced for me that with the huge concentration of corporate ownership in today's mass media, the de-throni...

Good point. Nobody ever gets on Al Pacino's case for, let's face it, acting the role of Al Pacino in every movie he does. Sometimes you're just good at what you do, so you stick to it. I really don't want to hear Coldplay make a hip-hop record. But the difference between actors (John Cusack/Al Paci...
