Thirty-Three

This video is perfect, apart from Billy Corgan's questionable choice of sunglasses. Thankfully he had better taste in women. Yelena Yemchuk was his girlfriend at the time and she directed the video for "Thirty-Three." It's stop motion animation, can you imagine how laborious this must have been for her? The part with D'arcy on the horse is the best.

Super amazing, especially the colour palette.

Magical. I once saw Billy at MOCA and my childhood thoughts of his dreaminess were confirmed. Who would've thought he'd turn out to be a Christian wingnut who still talks shit on Courtney Love?

Isn't it gorgeous? The video for "Zero" also has a similar aesthetics that you may be into.

I just love the smashing pumpkins, thank you for reminding me of this song.

I love the 6th and 7th photos best. Horses and flower wreaths? Feathers? It's hard to do better. The patience required for stop motion is so impressive.

Oh my gawd, I love D'Arcy in this one so much. I miss this incarnation of the Smashing Pumpkins so much, Gish through Adore. I hope she's doing alright these days.

What a great video. Smashing pumpkins were a real favorite of mine in the 90s and I always love a trip down memory lane, thanks!
