    Help setting up a new primary hard drive

    I've had my current computer for about two and a half years. I started with a 60gb hard drive, and about a year ago added an 80gb drive to the mix. Now, both drives are reaching full capacity, and I'm ready to swap the 60gb one with a new 160gb drive. My question is this: Is it possible to...

    Zwan: more of the same from Billy Corgan?

    Ever since Adore, I've been a big fan of The Smashing Pumpkins and just Billy Corgan in general (he's made available a ton of demos that are just him and an acoustic guitar, and he often took on much of the recording responsibilities for the Pumpkins anyway). I've been following Zwan closely...

    What happened to LIVE (the band)?

    I've been a fan since Throwing Copper, and while their sound has changed with each album since then, with V it just seems like they shoved a bunch of lyrics and instruments in a blender and this what came out. + The songs that don't have terrible lyrics are ruined by bad production (does...
