Okay I lied, actually 2 questions:

1. Why do they have Ginger wearing a blond wig? I didn’t even realize it was her until I saw her pick up the bass. It makes me think of D’Arcy.

2. Who is the woman at the very end of the video laying down? Linda Strawberry posted on MySpace to see if we could find her in that video but that doesn’t look like her. .

Any hints???

Geezz. I had the same creepy feeling when I saw her in the first half, around 1/3 or so, in the screen left above in a quick shot. Like "What? Huh? Did they hire…? Nooooo!". Very eagerly waiting to have an answer to this one!

apparently paris hilton is in the video.

and about what is going on: the band meets up and plays. that’s basically it.
in the beginning they’re all alone. then they get in touch with each other, take their space ships and meet. then they perform.

I saw strawberry in it… she is in one of the tv thingys for like a sec

When you are with everyone but me, you're with no one. When you are with no one but me, you're with everyone. Instead of being so bound up with everyone be everyone. When you become that many, you're nothing. Empty.

I will have to keep watching it because I didn’t catch Strawberry in the video (thanks Satur999 for pointing that out). I didn’t know Paris Hilton was in it, so I’ll keep an eye out for her — not surprised that she’d be in a video of theirs, especially after Billy explained why they chose her as an image of being famous today.

I thought Billy was flying a helicopter at first. It was a decent video but kinda confusing, although I liked it because you get to see Ginger, Jeff, and Lisa. I would have probably gotten more of it if it didn’t shift images so quickly but then again maybe it’s my old eyes that aren’t quick enough to keep up. :wink:

I hate to even mention this but does anyone think the woman on the floor at the end is Veronica Grey? I couldn’t say yes or no.

I wonder who shot the video. I got an email from Kristin Burns and she said she was in Greece w/ the Pumpkins. I wish that MTV still played videos cuz they always listed the producer.

[/quote:2xzklevu] MTV has completely degenerated. i wonder why it’s even still allowed to call itself MUSIC television considering one half of it’s prgramming is pimp my ride and the other half has bam margera in it

I am quite frustrated that MTV has gone down the tubes. I seriously do not know when the last time I saw a video was. . . I long for the days of \"Alternative Nation\". I think more and more we’ll be going to you sites like YouTube for videos.

If you don’t know what Veronica looks like, you can Google Images and see. Here is a link to the IMDb site and what bothers me most is that is lists she is married to Billy.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1227579

The IMDb site says she is married to Billy but the information on her is taken word-for-word from her fsyche web site. I also noticed that the email of the person updating her profile is one of her email addresses that she uses.

I wanted so badly to ask Kristin if it was really true about this so called marriage but didn’t feel it was in the context of what we were talking about.

I have to agree MTV,has went way down the hill and not even worth the time of day actually.

I’m just really confused that ginger was in a blond wig.Maybe Billy’s trying to make a point to D’arcy.Wasn’t it him that was Quoted she is *mean spirited*I don’t know, maybe a point here to try to reach D’arcy in this, only Billy’s does know.It WOULD be totally awesome, if they ended their closing tour date in Chicago with all the original members in the line up,that would totally like rock & pwn all things!!:lol:

But this video has a walking shade & tonight tonight feel to me.Love this vid was done in classic b&w.There something about the feel of b&w and SP.I do say this vid ,did jump around in it meaning and has a few points made in it.It was just really randomly showing different stuff at times,but of course to a greater meaning,as always with the pumpkins.I look forward in hearing Billy explaining this vid in more detail.The mind wonders with possibilities here!!:lol:

PS:The women it the video at the end could be Veronic Grey’s twin :lol:

HA! My mom was looking over my shoulder and said \"that’s a guy\" (in the video). I think if VG was in the video she’d be spewing this news all over the Internet. But I do have to say, it does resemble her.

I would love it if the band ended up w/ the original 4 members in Chicago but I’ve started to really like the 3 new Pumpkins so don’t know how I’d feel about that.

Oh, yes Billy did call her \"mean spirited\" and excuse my language but he actually said \"mean spirited bitch\". But he’s a hot head so maybe he’s over it now.

I like to think your mom is right. The eyes and eyebrows part are not female at all.

And about D’Arcy: I’m almost sure they (the band, or at least Billy) are sometimes hinting to her. Remember Billy’s bass guitar that was played by D’Arcy a lot in the old days? It appeared in a burial setting with a huge red SP heart in a coffin… can be found in the Zeitgeist artwork.

Wow, Arthur I am so impressed at how you picked that up. I think all of those images probably say a lot more than we think. I wonder about the wrestler guy. I know Billy likes wrestling but somehow I don’t think that is what it is about.

Uhmm, thanks, but the credits go to my friends I was with last Sunday. 1 of them mentioned it, untill then I didn’t know it either.

I agree with you the artwork of the SP releases has many stories to tell and anecdotes to be discovered.
