You are just stumped because you realise, I wrote a good, clear and insightful review of the video.

Therefore common "basic" insults are what you are resorting to.

Good.

Nothing wrong with having a low IQ.

I never said that.

I was just defending myself from being called basic.

I certainly do not fit in here because I actually like the Pumpkins and their current output.

That is what puts me at odds with many of the users here and is why I rarely post

I was compelled however to come on and defend this video as I really liked it,

As is the usual way, it has ended with people insulting and trying to argue with me for offering valid opinions which differs from their negative ones but I am used to that.

And I will probably go away for months again now (much I guess to your relief)

How dare I like any of the Pumpkins current work?

The sheer audacity of it.

Well it is better then the previous insults that have been levelled at me when I dared to be positive about the Pumpkins work. I am just saying that.


That and I did accidentally quote the wrong post. I was more impressed with their first post.

It even made me chuckle a little.

Being smart is a curse.

It makes you think, analyse and worry far too much.

I try not to mix with other smart people too much for that same reason.


I am analytically intelligent but I lack in emotional intelligence.

This is about as analytical as "washing his hands is symbolic of him washing his hands"

"he's wearing something that's similar to what he used to wear, except instead of something he used to wear, it's something completely different!"

I would put money on it that it was intended as the zero symbol.

Believe it or don't believe it. I know I am right and it is backed up by the clothing he is wearing.

The video is clear statement on him being creatively trapped in the past.

It is not that hard to see and I am not saying I am smart for seeing it.

The smart stuff was just me defending myself from someone calling me a human with basic intelligence.

Just so you can speed things up a little in future conversations, "I am an autistic white man" is implied when you announce your IQ

You do realise though that having a degree in finance in no way makes you more qualified for music video analysis than anyone else, right?

Duly noted and agreed.

But it does defend me from the insult of being a "basic human". "Basic" humans don't get finance degrees.

I am happy to admit that bragging about my IQ and finance degree was a little bit petulant and a knee jerk reaction to the insult but I was offended at the time at being called a "basic human" and my adrenalin was going.

It was mean to call me basic when I tried to offer my positive opinion on the video.

Believe it or not I am not a troll and am not here to try and offend or argue with people.

But I always find myself getting into that due to the fact that most of my opinions about the Pumpkins current work (apart from some of the Teargarden stuff) is positive.

That is contrary to the culture of this board .

Cannot believe he’s wearing the fucking skirt.

His outfit is trash.

The concept is trash.

The execution is trash.

The other band mates were the highlight.

The character study you could write on Corgan and his spiral. It’s like he hinks he can recreate what his creative team did back in the 90’s, but he has no fucking idea. Shallow as fuck. This track and video are close to being good enough for a reunion comeback, but they fail for the same reasons everything Billy has touched for the last 15 years failed. He’s an arsehole that makes dumb decisions and has a fucked up passive aggressive relationship with his own own fanbase.

He can’t keep it all together for one record. Like, one has a shit mix, another has no bandmates, anotherr no guitar solos, one will have good videos, the next utter garbage.

He should hire Netphoria to be his new production and marketing team.

Also, maybe if you had basic intelligence you'd realise that he didn't even say anything about your intelligence. I think he was more alluding to your taste.
