I get it (I think!) that this entire god cult figure thing is supposed to be a joke, but it's not particularly funny to me.
besides the fact that I find it somewhat odd that a 50 year old claiming to be spiritual and oh so godly actively ridicules faith, he could have done this shit with his solo tour or hell SP 2012-2016. why the theme has to be a one-person-cult now that Iha and JC are back is what I really do not get.

Yeah, it's hard to get away with "I'm just being ironic" when he's actually on record as a known egotist who routinely diminishes the role of his colleagues in his music.

It's like when people who are actually sincerely sexist try to get away with that "ironic" sexist joke or whatever.

I like stripes, though, so the prison jumper isn't all that bad.

Same here. This Knights of Columbus business is freaky and I'm bummed out James and Jimmy are along for the ride.

It's hilarious how in 2016 it was "We won't do the band again unless it's for the right reasons" and in 2018 it's Billy deified on a t-shirt and prayer candles.

Question

It's understandible that D'arcy didn't want to be on their tour shirts.

But how does it come that Corgan didn't even release a shirt of the actual band...?

Corgan's lame Messiah jokes may be a reaction on D'arcy Wretzky's rants about his megalomania:

"Billy spends %100 of his time and energy trying to prove to the world how much smarter he is about everything than anyone else is.
His communiques are full of false humility, condescension, misused words, MADE-UP words and a whole lot of bs, psycho-babble; & pseudo-spiritual bullshit to try to cover up the fact that he literally thinks he is the Messiah."

"So, Billy?
Are you saying that you don't think that you're the Messiah anymore?"

He spent even money for a sculpture to tell her she was wrong. Very convincing...

That's the whole point.

***News flash*** Billy is an egomaniac narcissistic.

In other news, the sky remains blue!

You operate like Sad Machines (or how Billy wants you to operate - 100% loyalty) and eliminate any friends that would dare have an opinion that doesn't match yours before you even wear the shirt.

my knee jerk reaction is "i'd totally wear that" but the more i think about it, i would probably just get a little poster of it. i kinda like it, in a way, but then again i'm all about a little sacrilege every now and then.
