Billy Corgan has a full plate. Between running a tea house, fronting a rock band, shutting down obnoxious questions, raising adorable kitty cats, and becoming a pro wrestling producer, the man keeps busy. So who has time to keep manning a Twitter account on top of all that? Not Corgan!


And what exactly is People And Their Cars? According to the site it will specialize in "pictures (mostly Vernacular), design elements (found), and ephemera with smatterings of Art (conscious)." Judging by what's in the blog's feed now, what that means is that Corgan will be posting vintage photos of people. And cars. And people and their cars.

We can see how Twitter would be too much of a burden for him now.

And no, the @Billy Twitter handle Corgan left behind isn't available—we already tried.
