She's not looking too hot these days.
I am, strangely, already listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness for the first time in years. This seriously could have been the best rock album of all time if they had kept it to 12 - 14 track single album. Been said before a number of times, but it is so true.
But that photo of D'Arcy, jesus christ!!
Also listening to Mellon Collie for the first time in years right now.
part of its charm is how overblown it is and that it holds hidden riches, it needs all those songs, I genuinely think they all are good and have a place,
Would anyone sane argue that Mellon Collie, around two arduous hours of Cupid De Locke and We Only Come Out At Night long is a better album than the perfectly realised Siamese Dream? Probably not.
Would it be fair enough to argue that a far more focused 50ish minute long truncation of Mellon Collie, perhaps the following...
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Where Boys Fear To Tread
Here Is No Why
Thru The Eyes Of Ruby
In The Arms Of Sleep
Bullet With Butterfly Wings
An Ode To No One
...would be a better album than Siamese Dream? I reckon yes, that would probably be a fair shout.
Siamese Dream is still much better. But try that out as a playlist. Pretty good!
though I do think that (I actually think siamese dream could lose the last 4 songs). I just think it would lose alot of its feel if you cut some songs and I like its feel, I dont find it an arduous 2 hours, I find it an album that rewards revisiting as there is so much to be found beyond the obvious ones, songs like cupid de locke add to it's atmosphere and really fit in with the strange antiquated artwork of the album, and they only come out at night was my 2nd favourite song on the album when I was 14 (after muzzle) think if it was earlier on in the album and didnt have the weird drum machine it would be regarded better, I think it is a shame they abandoned all the strange sounds they tried out on that album, without it they are abit one dimensional metalic rock with occasional spacey bits
but I dont think it would be a better one
Maybe Porcelina too. Still could have squeezed on a single disc though, couldn't it?
Courtney was right, Corgan should have held on to a few of the b-sides from this era too. Would have made Machina I & II slightly more enjoyable.
ends with Porcelina and By Starlight, but that kind of negated my point as it brought the running time to 68 minutes which is long by anyone's standards. XYU obviously rocks but is too long and too brash for the point I was trying to make with the slicker, classic sounding, cut down album. Stumbleine and To Forgive were the two that I had to umm and ahh about leaving off, both excellent songs, but would have made the album too long. This is all hypothetical bollocks anyway, so yeah, not really sure why I'm explaining all this!
She WASb attractive at one point in her career, mirite?
that's what crack does to you i guess
Absolutely, it was back in '99 she was done for crack. Looks like she's never been off it.
Did you guys hear the radio phone in she made a few years back? She phoned a station completely randomly to ask about the Silversun Pickups and then rambled on for a while. It's quite a sad listen actually.
I used to look up to the entire band as a young teen. It's just unfortunate that right now I, of all students, doing better than a multi-million record selling musician. Horse poop... LAWL
Poor fucked up D'arcy.
Funny how she looks completely fucked up on the crack, but Evan Dando still looks amazing. Guess it works in different ways for different people.
she's obviously had some pretty botched plastic surgery gone on...
they distract attention away from the meth face though
....except for the fact that .....no i dont care. sorry for posting ()
as when I listened to zeitgeist
are defo my favourite. x
i was not expecting that
I'm sure I read that fiance passed away sometime in the last decade. I guess stuff like that doesn't really help the crack predilection much.
...and that Corgan's still allowed to be a fucking asshole in public. World, you are a cruel mistress >:-(
on a botched plastic surgery site, she didn't look like THAT but she was pretty shiny.
