“The purpose of this website is to discuss openly and without fear concepts of Mind-Body-Soul integration. If you are drawn to the Hidden Truths, drawn to God as something beyond limitation, and drawn to Love as the greatest force in the Universe, then you have come to the right place at the right time. This is a place of Love.
In discussing Mind-Body-Soul integration within the context of holistic Truth, many topics will be explored here that may be new to you. Like any good tree that one would hope to grow, we must set our roots deep into the ground so that what is real will prosper in the Light of Love.”

After 10 years of the old design I thought it was time for something new and fresh.
As many of you know the old site has long been suffering with inadequate updates, dated content and info, etc. I had always planned on updating the site and launching something newer but struggled with getting anything done and as the years started to go by the site began to rot. Part of the reason was simply I had lost interest, also the fact that the old site was not dynamic/automated made it difficult to keep things updated on a regular basis.
I hope everyone likes the new look of the site, I tried to keep it dark and familiar. The new site will once again have the latest Smashing Pumpkins news, information and tour dates. The photo album has been enhanced and expanded upon and the videos pages has been updated. More new content and features will be added in time. I will also be looking at ways to integrate the Message Board more into the main site.
A special thanks to MonteLDS for helping me get things rolling again.
TMZ has broken the news that D’arcy and James Iha are suing their former record company. The former bandmates are accusing Virgin Records of negotiating a deal exclusively with Billy Corgan for Smashing Pumpkins music that has been distributed through “new technology” methods (ringtones, downloads, etc.) without their consent.

NEW: SmashingPumpkins.com talked to Billy about the beginning is the end is the beginning being in the Watchmen Trailer
SP.COM: “The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning” is one of the most synthetic-sounding Pumpkins tracks, yet the Batman songs were concurrently recorded with very raw-sounding Adore demos. How did you put the song together and what technology did you use to achieve the effects?
Billy Corgan: Honestly, I don’t remember, other than trying to merge the ‘band’ sound with a synthetic approach.
SP.COM: The sessions that TEITBITE and TBITEITB came from also inspired remixes from Rabbit in the Moon, Fluke, andNellee Hooper. Who else worked on these songs with you in the studio? Do you recall any particular reference points for or influences on the song, either sonically or conceptually?
Billy Corgan: My main focus was to write a track that would capture what I thought was the original feeling of Batman from the comics in the 40’s where he was a darker character. The lyrics to the two versions reflect that idea.
SP.COM: Back in 1997, you spoke about the “Batman and Robin” songs as being fairly specifically inspired by the character of Batman. What are your thoughts about those songs now, over a decade later, and particularly given that this song has been repurposed for “Watchmen”?
Billy Corgan: Fans never seemed to care much for those songs, so I am pleasantly surprised that they have been found to have some value somewhere, and that maybe this will give those tracks a second chance. I always thought it was a good song and that the slower version was really well done.
