Damn, that's what I thought. Too bad, cause I was hoping for some netphoria girls to back me up on this one.

Depends on the porn you prefer. We can't judge your tastes, bro.

this song and video is stunningly beautiful. especially the box with the heart and key and the ending he wrote in his handwriting. precious =)

if this had been arranged differently it could have been one of the band's best songs.

I think it's great. just the way it is. How would you arrange it?

Anyway, beautiful video. :)

not a bad video. it was ridiculed on this forum over the stupidest shit (billy's goggles) the sort of shallow thinking that usually accompanies this board. i love the artwork esepcially the wardrobe design here. the only thing thats really lame about it is it came after that trend in videos where the camera would pan over a changing collage landscape that got old really fast (modest mouse's float on, franz ferdinand's take me out), though the 2d effects are neat. good vid good song too

can't wait to see what kind of back pedaling is done over the zeitgeist era.

i was actually gonna make a thread about this. i went to look at some tfe tour clips and saw a number of comments that this stuff is 'better than zeitgeist'. i've noticed it on this board as well, people have eased up on tfe. tfe seemed like a joke at first but zeitgeist turned out to be a bigger joke so i think tfe is looking better by comparison. (dont fret zeitgeist lovers, people may backpedal on that too)

I actually hate the costuming. at least with Billy's outfit, it looks okay in the video, but it's really cheesy and poorly constructed when you get a decent look at it.

let's put zippers all over everything!!!!

I still think TFE is worse than Zeitgeist. My opinion has never really changed on albums because of new albums... at least not drastically.

I don't know whether to respect Billy's artistic integrity or question his sanity. I honestly would like to know if he thought TFE had any chance at any level of popularity. I like the video but there is no way it was going to fly on MTV/Fuse/etc. Do you think he just said "fuck it I'm going to do what I want" or was he shocked when he found out it had been played a total of 3 times on music video channels.

I enjoyed TFE too, the music and the videos. I also liked how open and fan-friendly he was during that time. The interviews that took place during that time were also very interesting and at times enlightening. As a whole Im not particularly fond of the music/lyrics of Zeitgeist and the Zeitgeist era Billy seems a bit cold and aloof to me, especially with the complete avoidance of any interviews.

Mayfuck, is that guy in your avatar single? After tonight I wouldn't mind some random guy with a love for coke knocking on my door.

Both?

Artistically he clearly does whatever he wants, but whether he expects it to be more popular than it ends up being is what would determine his 'sanity'.

I like the Future Embrace, but I agree there was no way that was ever going to sell to anyone other than Corgan fans. I'd give Billy the benefit of the doubt and assume he tried to make the best album he could and didn't care about its commercial success.

Damn I haven't seen that video in a while, but it's really well made, and Walking Shade is one of the best songs Bill's ever created. I wish all of TFE could've been the same caliber.

And yeah Bill's dancing at the beginning is totally sweet, he should've done more of that.

if Billy is going to keep up his current singing style then he should at least have the courtesy to process it beyond recognizability like he's done here.

He said in numerous interviews that he knew no one was going to "get it" (as in "understand it," not "buy it"), and that he made the album he always wanted to make.

I'm sure he had hoped it would have been received well, but he never said it as far as I know.
