"Ever since we started, people were taking odds on how long we would last. This last time I think a lot of it was perpetuated by a story that Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins was going to buy it. I texted Billy and I said, 'Oh really, so you’re going to buy my company? Are you excited? That’s cool.' And he said, ‘Oh, don’t you love rumors.'" Read the full story at
