why can't Billy just share some good memories connected to this stuff? Its always the band was sinking, people didn't care about him once the SP1 era was over, people didn't appreciate this or that. How about just being happy people really love a good amount of the albums you made with your band?

He is the perpetual victim. It justifies, among other things, his continual abuse of the fanbase. There are ppl on here (reprise, johncg) who can explain why it’s necessary better than i can. But it’s exactly like my dad, who is a dangerous, abusive narcissist. He can never tell a story without including his grievances against all the ppl who wronged him. Usually by failing to acknowledge that he is the smartest/best and most special man that ever lived

When he did he get like this? In SD and MCIS era interviews he always comes across pretty well. He's a little too bothered about this or that but overall he seems okay. Even in Machina era interviews he seems like a cool guy a lot of the time. Sure the idea of the parodying itself was dumb and pretentious but the music was still good who cares anyway.

In 1993 he talked about appearing on Saturday Night Live as proving something to all the people who bullied him at school

Yeah, that's definitely a bad interview

I was thinking about interviews like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5-gybymlq8

Billy has always been a fuck to varying degrees but it's much more tempting to look past it and forgive him for it during the period that he produced good music

My two takeaways from this embarrassing SP post...

Billy isn't alone in thinking others in the industry are beneath him, I remember hearing an anecdote about how Thom Yorke blanked a famous lead singer of a manufactured pop band in a record store. Pretty pathetic on both counts. But I digress...

This apparent self-reflection is all about trying to get a little cross-promotion for Cyr by @-ing the Coldplay account. Hoping for a little bit of press coverage if Chris Martin responds. And Billy is only showing "respect" because Coldplay continues to be relatively successful, moreso than the Pumpkins' legacy in hindsight. There's no doubt a degree of envy and jealousy.

The real lesson should be "don't be a dick" to anyone in the industry regardless of where their career is at or the success they have. Which is why Billy's epiphany here is completely fake. He's feeling bad about himself, not how he treated others. He just wants to bait some acknowledgement from Martin to stroke his ego and promote his record. He should feel shitty about all those people he was rude to who didn't go on to be huge mega-stars earning a ton of money.

Also Billy's disowning of the Zwan record doesn't work when it was his insistence on megalomaniac control of making a pop record which apparently turned the more indie-leaning members off it, coupled with whatever drama with Paz was unfolding in the background. He doesn't get to say "Oh, I'm pleased this was a failure, I knew it would blah blah" - bottom line is Zwan should never have been a TOTP or CD:UK band - and despite everything there are a ton of positives from MSOTS and that era in general, but Bill is always down on it.

great post

and of course that reissue will never come out despite it being the last vestige of anything worth waiting for

i'm not sure if i read the anecdote wrong but he's doing all this fucking whining because he didn't say hi to someone 17 years ago?

That's fairly standard. Best way to combat is to not submit anything.

That way the cover art will either be hand-drawn stick figures or metallic ungulates.

to be fair, fan art is already abundant, people will probably mostly submit stuff they've already done in the past.
