Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan reboots National Wrestling Alliance

No, really!

Billy Corgan has a plan to resurrect an old favorite, a project tinged with nostalgia, yet firmly with an eye on sparking a new generation of fans.

Ah, yes, reuniting the classic Smashing Pumpkins lineup?

Not quite — at least, not this weekend.

Corgan is set to reboot the National Wrestling Alliance, founded in 1948 and the once proud stomping grounds of Ric Flair, Lou Thesz, Harley Race and other wrestling legends, injecting the forgotten company with a 21st century flavor.

“Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage” – hey, maybe Corgan himself can don a rat costume and enter a cage match! 😉

Putting the ‘colon’ back in ‘colonialism’…

An almost seven minute long video by Canadian indie band Wintersleep, of their song ‘Amerika’, inspired by the Walt Whitman poem ‘America’, featuring the Donald giving a speech

America

By Walt Whitman

Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,
All, all alike endear’d, grown, ungrown, young or old,
Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,
Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,
A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chair’d in the adamant of Time.
