that is why I stopped to even occasionally look at that fb page.

if you think this place here is a nuthouse, it's nothing compared to "fans" on fb. which is why I never was 100% convinced it is really her.(I am aware who that account is friends with, but still.) who the fuck would put up with this.

I'm pretty sure it's her. The "I Love you SO MUCH KELLY !!!" Post was to Kelly Wey, who is a manager/bartender/fire starter at Metro Chicago. Too many connections...

I know I know.
I will never shake the last bit to get to a 100% certain.
Probably because what I saw of her posts a few years back (she once ended up chatting with me as well for whatever odd reason) makes me wish "the real darcy" would do better in terms of mental health than what it looked like.

anyway. you apparently still look at a bunch of sp related fb pages, forgotten child?

please keep us non-fb folks updated this week. this cliffhanger needs to be continued.

yea I kept saying "this will never happen" and then, slowly, 2 years of bolly reunion talk and how he is friends with darcy again apparently got to me.

very slim chances, but - I also never thought I would get to hear my favorite song played live and I did, so you know... lol. if anything I figured they could pull off just one show as the actual SP in Chicago, all 4 of them. we'll see, I guess, at this point I am absolutely clueless.

my counting on it was 1 for, 99 against, don't kill my 1!

(truthfully it went up a bit ever since they casually dropped a pic of the 3 guys of SP 2? weeks back. I am stupidly delusional okay.)

I mean Billy did say in a recent interview that he finally realized that “Smasing Pumpkins” meant the original lineup, and he’s been playing up his reuniting with Darcy

yea but, what of the things he*s been playing up the past 17 years actually became reality? I mean it got to me as well, but I should know better by now. just as I really believed we would eventually see the dozen releases he played up in the past 5 years alone.

her absence from the little studio meet-up spoke volumes. billy would never have missed the chance to post that picture with hashtags into next week.

If Strawberry says not to believe it and let Billy come forward, fine by me. We all know she actually talks to the guy.

I'm amazed how many people are actually angry that three professional musicians chose not to collaborate with a bass player with known and possibly unchecked addiction and metal illness issues, who probably hasn't actually even played seriously for 19 years. She can't even use fucking facebook.

I mean, she was technically a professional musician too. Sure, she isn't a virtuoso like Corgan or Jimmy, but she got money for playing

I still maintain that every good Pumpkins record was made with all 4 together, even if they didn't all play

i don't know why, but i thought this was actually going to happen. must have been billy's talks of the "profoundly healing moment" he had with d'arcy when she told him he was right and her and james were "misguided".

i didn't have hopes for this reunion musically tbh, but i at least hoped to see the four of them going into the studio together, touring, whatever - just engaging each other again. but alas, just The Power Metal Duo (aka BC|JC) and one not-so-big-on-feelings James Iha is really not "it", whatever that may be

tbh it was obvious as soon as a photo from the studio 'leaked' or whatever and d'arcy wasn't in it

I got the insight scoop from one of my crackhead friends in Benton Harbor (where Darcy gets her hard):

So, she got high as fuck saw the instagram pics with b0lli jimbo and jamez, realized she wasn't there and lost her shit. made an announcement on her own.

later she sobered up realized she might of screwed up what slight chance she had at playing a gig or two and getting some drug money. to cover up she claimed her account was hacked.

the end!

I agree. She probably got like an email from management saying "you're out" after months of being strung along and now the SP media machine is doing damage control. This is a lot like when Jim Brueur talked about Brian Johnson getting royally dicked over by AC/DC, the news started to leak out making Angus and Co look bad, then all of a sudden everything the big rock band propaganda machine erased the whole thing and made it all look nicey nice. Except this is worse cause it's Billy and lord knows he's already put Darcy through enough shit. Fuck him if Darcy's not involved and fuck his reunion tour.

Either that or she's in some situation that just made it impossible to have her come back to the fold, i can imagine a bunch of scenarios.. buuuuuuuutttt why string along the fan base. they're already on thin ice with that as it is.
