Nobody acted lame when Jimmy was gone
And when D'arcy quit?

Nobody said Adore was NOT AN SP ALBUM!!!1!
Just like they didn't criticize Gish & SD for being just Billy & Jimmy.
James QUIT the fuckin band in 2000. Billy broke up the band out of respect, but he didn't have to.
James & D'arcy don't wanna be in theband, so let them have their choice and stop speaking for them.
Some people don't know shit, are hypocritical, and love to feel superior to the musicians who moved them so, out of insecurity

This is technically the FOURTH time the "ineup" has changed. As soon as someone complains about that, they're a red flag fool

However, stuff like all this posting of old band pictures and moaning over times past in the PARIS show discussion thread is sickening. It reeks of an obsession with IMAGE over MUSIC. This is how emo kids and mainstream pop fans act.

We get a HUGE fucking rock show, and an ensuing tour where millions of people will get to hear songs that might not have EVER even been played live again. PLUS, Billy is even allowing all this open bootlegging! How many mainstream rock bands do that?!

I don't give a fuck about how the current situation compares with your idealized nostalgia. I've been a huge fan since 1995, I remember Billy with hair and cute D'arcy and all that shit. YOU GET TO SEE SP AGAIN, you get to hear Cherub Rock and Silverfuck and Tonight, Tonight, etc. slamming you in the face from huge speakerss and Billy ripping out solos on stage. You get a whole new album of hard rocking songs.

If you can't enjoy this without James standing a certain way or making the occasional wisecrack, or without thinking about beating off to D'arcy later that night, then you're really not into the music at all, you're into an idealized memory.

I hate censorship, and think people should be able to post whatever they want, but I'm just sharing my reaction to what I see. Feel free to flame away.
I haven't read the rest of the thread, but I approve of this post. Every single word of it.

We had no say so in the band makeup of the band, and after 10+ years of buying his bullshit, I wasn't going to buy it anymore. I could care less if I get to hear the songs again, its not the best representation of the band. I won't even mention darcy since no one even knows where the hell the bitch is, or what condition she is in.

Also, if you have the balls to just leave the past behind, and not even bother asking an original and integral part of the band back, then have the balls to introduce the new yesmen you brought into the band.
Why don't you just shut the fuck up already? Could you be any more lame and predictable? The sad truth is that you probably could.

The new music kicks ass and it appears nobody gives a real big fuck about whether or not James is around. So, why don't you get over yourself already?

Personally, I'm sick of hearing about your endless crusades to point out the attrocities that BC has committed against you , Esty, from fucking Netphoria. Quit crying about Billy and get a friggin life.

Actually, it's pretty clear from this thread that a lot of people give a fuck.

I guess discounting someone's opinion based on the popularity of said opinion is a classic mouth-breathing fanboy technique, but really, I guess I shouldn't expect any better from 90% of the retards who have invaded this board.

I guess if things were really so bad people would stop posting here, and yet the popularity of Netphoria seems to grow and grow almost as much as the popularity of drama-filled hand wringing threads like these.

I hope retards like you keep going, pretty soon there won't be anything but this shit on the entire board.

By the same token if you have such a problem with the state of Netphoria why do you continue to post here? It's not like there aren't other boards where you can talk about SP.

In other words - if you don't like it go the fuck away.

SP was more than just music, it was a dysfunctional family.
now it's two great friends with two puppets.

we should at least recognize that their chaotic nature had a lot to do with what they became.

'as long as it rocks' ? god, the reason they were my favorite band is not because they 'rock'.

if i were billy corgan, i would at least have changed the name a bit... simply called it "the pumpkins".

More people oughta take your advice ravenguy. 'It' being Smashing Pumpkins

I personally, don't care if people diss, but when it's incessant and baseless, it's flooding like the Corganrules, billykicker and esty who are 2-dimentional cards on this board

I think Billy can do whatever the fuck he wants, and you can bitch about it as much as you want. I still think you are all douchebags though.

You can put people on ignore you stupid fuck. If it's really just 5 people then it shouldn't be too much a problem, yah know?

Oh but wait, maybe it would be considering these 5 people have pages and pages of this bullshit dedicated to them on a daily basis.

Again, why is Netphoria the only option for talking about the Smashing Pumpkins? It's one thing to have a lot of negative things to say about a band. It's another to clog up a board with endless bitching about it when there are plenty of ways you can avoid it.

there is no way to justify the idiots around here that hang out just to bash BC/SP. if its really not about that, if its about continuing to hang out around a website just because you know people, then go to one of the other netphoria boards.

Maybe it's because the new songs are terrible, maybe it's because wearing shopping bags on stage gives the already terrible songs an aura of cheesiness, maybe its because the old songs aren't played with genuine soul and anger as they were in the 90s but rather with cheap nostalgia or maybe cause i've discovered tons of new and groundbreaking music since 1995 that makes everything Billy's written since 98 seem watered down and uninteresting. But the overall affect is clear and people have legitimate reason for pissing on this band.

this whole james thing is going to become the most tired argument of this whole SP era.

Whose fault is that? Can't say we'll ever know for sure but maybe some people need to move on. Either quit giving the band so much attention or just accept the newbies.

its music you fucking idiots. and as long as the pumpkins make music, i'm happy. i'm happy that i'll get to hear pumpkins songs live again, with or without james. and darcy? who gives a shit, billy wrote most of her parts anyway. i'll give ginger and jeff a chance; maybe they will bring something better to the pumpkins.

unless billy just put them up there on stage to fill an empty void. and in that case, the pumpkins are a sham. but i really think that these two new guys were part of the studio process...
