If your a good looking person & you think that looks alone will get you through life, boy, you have some unpleasant surprises coming in your future / people like people who work / people with money / people who make things happen/ plus, work is good exercise for mind & body :) $

This is the first Smashing Pumpkins song I ever heard. I listen to My Chemical Romance a lot and I read somewhere that Smashing Pumpkins was one of their biggest influences and I thought Smashing Pumpkins was screamo/ thrash metal. I was really surprised to find that they were in-fact Alternative 1979!

I can't go back to the place this song reminds me of because a highway was put through that whole hillside. It doesn't exist anymore. That's pretty sad

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Now you've started reading this. Don't stop this is so freaky. But if you read this and ignore it then you will have very bad luck put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you're done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen this is so creepy cause it really works.

People in California can't go out smashing pumpkins these holidays , because we are in a drout/no rain, no water for farms , so, we are producing 30% of what we normally produce in crops and vegetation/g r e e n e e r y
