Blinking with Fists
    #3422188 - 11/29/04 05:50 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Anyone recently bought Billy Corgan's book of poetry? I've always thought he was an outstanding lyricist, and this just proves that he stands on his own, with or without music. Anyone that has read it, any thoughts? I saw him in Seattle recently doing a poetry reading/acoustic concert. Very intimate and close, no more than 100 ppl there...His writing is so ambiguous, it's hard to get a lot of personal meaning from it until you hear his own voice with the words. Anyway...I'm interested it what people think of the book, if anyone is interested in responding.

i didnt know he came out with one!  that is exciting, as ive always been a fan of mr corgan, i think he speaks beautifully for my generation, interestingly enough...  or at least some of my generation  :smirk:

when i pick it up ill let you know what i think, but i may be biased :wink:

hah, biased is ok, it's very hard for me to acknowledge anything he does that i don't like (which isn't much). i think the book is awesome, he's got a unique style (obviously, if you're into his music). and meeting him in person was an amazing experience i won't soon forget

I thought it was good. Do you have a favorite poem or two?
