Seems that bald, pretentious artiste Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and his other bandmates are suing Virgin Records for using the band's name in promotional deals and other such whatnot.

According to the complaint, this promotion threatens the band's rep for "artistic integrity" and hurts its credibility with fans.

Uhhhh, sorry to break it to you Billy, but if that's what this is all about you might as well sue Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

I had a feeling this would happen. There've been so many damn memes going around, I was bound to catch one sooner or later. There's only so much vitamin C or green tea one can take to keep his immune system humming along. And Smitty got me. Oh well.

This one seems to be known as the 4X4 meme, meaning you have to wear a baseball cap, drive a pick-up truck, and sing John Mellencamp songs, I think. Or maybe it's just answering the following four questions:

4 jobs I've had: Grass Roots Organizer for Insurgent Political Campaign, Waiter, Production Assistant (Film), Lawyer.

4 TV shows I watch: Mets baseball, King & I (Korean language historical drama . . . with subtitles), No Reservations (though not lately), Iron Chef America (not lately either)

4 places I have been: San Sebastian, Spain; Kwangju, South Korea; Punta Del Este, Uruguay; Ile-d'Orléans, Quebec, Canada.

4 foods I like: N.Y. Strip Medium Rare Thank You Very Much, French Fries, Sure I'll Take The Creamed Spinach Why The Hell Not, Port Ain't Food But That's Gotta Be The Finishing Move.

Bored? Disappointed? Neither? Oh well. Who's tagged? All of you . . . or no one at all. We're all about free will (and freeing willy) at this here place.

So, there's this meme been goin' around, and all the cool kids are doing it:
Instructions: Look up 15 of your favorite films on IMDb and take a quote from each. List them below. When someone guesses the quote correctly, cross it off the list. Leave a comment with your answers. And NO CHEATING.
Fridge & Furious "officially" tagged me, but this one really seems to be a tagless meme. Anyhow, my time is limited, so let's hit it:

1. It's gettin' so a businessman can't expect no return from a fixed fight. Now, if you can't trust a fix, what can you trust? For a good return, you gotta go bettin' on chance - and then you're back with anarchy, right back in the jungle. (Angelos)

2. You're a strange person, Robert. I mean, what would it come to? If a person has no love for himself, no respect for himself, no love of his friends, family, work, something . . . . How can he ask for love in return? I mean, why should he ask for it? (George)

3. See? You made me hurt myself again! I broke my hand off completely at the wrist this time, Tina! But that's okay, Darlin', because I love you, and that's why you have to let me EAT YOUR BRAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIINS! (Angelos)

4. All I know is that instead of two weeks in Atlantic City with my bridegroom, I spent two weeks in a coal mine with John Krupsky. You don't deny that, do you Walter? (Flitgirl)

5. You know Spider, you're a fuckin' mumbling stuttering little fuck. You know that? (Applesaucer)

6. Yeah, but I still like a piece of pussy once in a while. Ain't nothing like a piece of pussy, except maybe the Indy 500. (Angelos)

7. Those two yellow zinnias at the end, they're shorter now. Now since when do flowers grow shorter over the course of two weeks? Something's buried there. (WFTA)

8. You won't fuck me and I always have to drive. (Applesaucer)

9. The farmers have won. We have lost. (George)

10. Last time I was inside a woman was when I visited the Statue of Liberty. (Toasty Joe)

11. You . . . you bought all that pudding so that you could get frequent flier miles? (Rickey Henderson)

12. We are the music makers . . . and we are the dreamers of dreams. (Chris Howard)

(Yeah, I know this originally comes from a poem. But this is a movie meme. So deal with it.)

13. Allow me the pleasure of introducing you to Blade . . . Laser . . . Blazer . . . (Applesaucer)

14. I just met a wonderful new man. He's fictional but you can't have everything. (Flitgirl)

15. But feel, to the very end, the triumph of being alive! (George)
