couldn't sit thru ten seconds of this video. It's embarassing and invokes a feeling of fremdschämen

The only thing I could think of that would lower the bar is an autoerotic asphyxiation vibe for video no.2. I'm ging for James hanging himself in a wardrobe a la David Caradine (shudder).

at least they have one thing still going for them - I learned that I obviously can't even imagine what artistic-rock-bottom looks like for Bully & co.

They somehow always manage to top what I thought was the bottom. That's all you can ask for while watching a car crash really.

Yeah I blame myself partly for being shocked, still. I mean I still remember the crushing disappointment when Tarantula leaked, kidded myself that it was an outlier and the album would still be good lol Then the embarrassing Tarantula video, fast forward another 11 years and here we are people.

Oh the fucking humanity!

Tarantula is a good song. Only good one from ZG. It is the only SP2 song that actually sounds like SP.

It's OK but in no way did it sound like SP. It's rushed, congested, forced, it has the shit, strained over-loud Billy vocals. There's several better songs on the album though all are partially ruined by the numerous fuck-ups in recording the thing.

I have watched the video a few times and thought it was incredible. A work of art almost.

Come on here and see this reaction.

Nothing will please the people who frequent this board.

I can think of about a bajillion better treatments for this video.

For starters, it should focus on the band playing. Start with a closeup of B0lly chugging on the guitar...closeup of Jimmy hittin' the drums...Billy's face on the mic when the vocals start...James waiting for his part...

HOW HARD IS THIS.

Maybe I’m blinded by nostalgia but I loved the song and don’t mind the production or vox. Even has the beehive guitar tone and the dreamy fuzz pedal (which still is gone). Billy’s vox in the breakdown even have some SD quality to em, IMO.

That’s pretty much the only SP2 song I lump in with SP1.

IMO, the most egregious vox/production abortion was Doomsday Clock.

There is no James part unfortunately, just butt chugging from Billy and Josh

They could have gone with the 30s Futurism aesthetic

They could have had dignified dad rock

They could have had ANYTHING BUT FUCKING THIS

It's really much more watchable if you just try and zero in on the Cooper/ Renault thread and Windom Earle plotlines, yeah. But...Lana the sex witch, little Nicky, James, Nadine, Civil War Ben...the good parts really do become lost in this mountain of irrelevance and silliness. Last month I went through it skipping over almost all of that and it was much more bearable.

FWWM is a challenging experience. Great but not perfect. My SO watched it with me last year and she despised it, was too visceral for her. I view it as a very necessary bookend, but I kind of do feel like most of the missing pieces should have been present (especially the speaking Norweigian scene). That it would be stronger in an even longer form, maybe a miniseries...but here was just so much going on already and Laura was the focus, so I get why cuts were made.

The video looks so cheap and shit. it's being weird for the sake of being weird and is all so forced looking. And somehow, almost unbelievably, it manages to make the song more unbearable than it already was.

The artistic nosedive this band has taken since 2000 is unreal. Bring back Yelena, Jonathan and Valerie.

It would've been better if he'd been lip syncing throughout, cos then at least he'd have had something to do. As it is he's just "acting" and he can't act.

So assuming you'd view Tonight, Tonight or Thirty Three as good videos, what about this makes it good?

I'm genuinely curious because I can't bear to watch it all the way through.

Try Try Try was a weird video. I showed that to my parents at the time and they thought I needed mental therapy for thinking it was good lol.

SP has always had off the wall videos. The good news now days though is that even if it is terrible, SP is not relevant enough to embarrass themselves. If it's bad, no one will care or notice.

So they're trying to "connect 4" members of the band together, but Jeff is the best they can do even when they send in Jimmy. Jimmy is terrible at connect 4.

I just really want to put a barbell on Billy's back and force him to start squatting. He could use a toothpick for the bar and make progress at this point.
