These are to me the two most interesting videos by the band. So just talk about what aspects of them you like / don't like. What works for you / doesn't work for you.

When I downloaded the videos on You Tube I actually found it more pleasing to watch them with the music turned off. I could focus on it and take it all in better.

I think the Stand Inside Your Love video is flawless. The only thing I don't like about the 33 video is when they cut to the Indian women. It kind of ruins the very European vibe of the video.

i don't think it ruins the atmosphere at all. i'd say the overall vibe is as much american as it is european, the inclusion of the indian women doesn't really affect that. the indian women shot has such a mystique, i think its one of the most beautiful shots in the video.

It seems out of place. There is a beauty to the shot but it just doesnt seem to belong. Like it would be better somewhere else.

Ahhhh very European... indian women... art deco.... very french new wave... very blade runner, almost early chaplin-esque.

Almost has that 16th century... almost 17 century feel.

33 and SIYL are actually my two favorite SP music vids. Odd that you should make a thread about both of 'em ;)

I just think that the Thirty-Three vid has a sort of hypnotic quality... some of my favorite shots are with D'arcy and the horse, the band sitting on the bed with their instruments (I like D'arcy's pink dress), and of course James and D'arcy on the swings. I love Billy and the paint streaks behind his head. The whole video is just wonderful :)

chatherine wheel does your wheel ever stop turning? ;) =)

i havent watched the 33 video much but really like the song and siyl is just beautiful =)

i dont much care for the SIYL video.. not bad.. just way to gothic for my taste.

i really like the the 33 video, possibly one of my favorites. I like how simple yet artistic it is.. aside from some bad and probably expensive costumes.. there are no overdone sets or stupid camera/computer effects. I love the part where the trio are all walking in black suits and billy picks up the kid.. and also when the three of them are sitting on the bed with guitars. The ending with james and darcy on the swings is also really cute.

those girls holding the dolls at 3:19 freak the shit out of me though.

from memory, my favorite scene in any sp vid is in 33 when the woman is walking toward the gate, carrying roses

SIYL is beautiful, I remember how Billy said that no one wanted the shot of that guy rubbing his nipple though. Personally, i'm glad he stuck with it.

Here he is again

SIYL is my favorite Pumpkins video ever! Such a great song too.

thirty-three: the alice in wonderland shot, billy wearing dark glasses walking into the camera and later looking out the window, james on the boat and the tracking shot in the hotel room.

siyl: the awesome shot of melissa at around 1:30.

33 - one of my favorite shots is the woman in black on the windy beach. I also agree that some of the shots at the end seem to have an altogether different feel - a feel that doesnt 100% fit with the direction the video was going up to that point. I think especially of the old guys that look like an outtake from the Rocket video...

SIYL - I think one of my favorite shots is the zoomed out silhouette shot of Billy with his wand overlooking the cliff, with the graphic clouds moving above him. I would also Im also in the camp of those who dislike the nipple shot. That whole segment does make the video less serious, but I dunno....I kinda liked it serious. :D

Also a big fan of the Ava Adore video. :D I just love the imagery...
Here's hoping the Pumpkins return to somewhat evocative videos (and not because they suck). ;)
