The Smashing Pumpkins for Sunburst?

There's a rumor floating between members of the Malaysian National Pork Mee Association that The Smashing Pumpkins are being targeted to be one of the headliners for the upcoming Sunburst Music Festival happening in Malaysia on March 15.

This should be big news to most I am sure. Never mind that this isn't exactly The Smashing Pumpkins. To call this lineup the Pumpkins is like Morrissey waking up one day and saying ...

Morrissey: Hey, you, the boy with the thorn on his side, come here.

Boy: Yes, o legendary puffy hair lord?

Morrissey: Change my name on the poster to The Smiths.

Boy: But o greatest, is that even an accurate description? Seeing as the other three are missing?

Morissey: What other three? What the hell are you talking about? Go do it now, chop chop.

So as such, I have decided to focus on the next best thing than having D'arcy and James Iha rejoin the band - Billy's new mistress of the low-end Ginger Reyes. Because there is seriously no other reason to watch the new incarnation of The Smashing Pumpkins. 'Tonight Tonight' live? Nah. Corgan squealing like choked monkey? Nopes. Ginger Reyes? Hell yeah! Yum yum gugli gum gum blueny buk buk (starts making monkey sounds to the tune of '1979').
