Everyone seems a bit down these days so here is something to make you laugh, from James Iha and The Onion.

The Onion: Why should anyone buy your record?

James Iha (guitars): Well, by buying anything these days, we step into a bourgeois quagmire of sorts. We are all victims of what Marx called a false consciousness, whereby the purchase of the hard-rocking alternative angst of The Smashing Pumpkins has somehow freed us from our chains. We still exist in the wide-awake nightmare of the dominant class.

O: Do you think your record will help people?

JI: Help people? I need help. You need help for even asking. In our self-made postmodern apocalypse, we are eating, breathing, eBaying our way into oblivion. Art is dead.
