Smashing Pumpkins meet the Old Testament

We had out lesson on Hosea last week and it sounds like a number of people had that lesson today.

Ardis shares her lecture notes with us on Keepa.

All this talk of Gomer and whoredoms reminded me of a Smashing Pumpkins that was released shortly after my mission.

So, will we always be His whore?

  1. Let me rephrase that: I wasn’t thinking that I had scared Ardis away, I just realized as I watched it that I likely scared some others away. Ardis is scared of nothing.

  2. I happen to be a fan of music videos, and this one is by far my favorite. I also see that you posted the un-edited version. In ’98, MTV declined to show the original video, opting to blur out the racy scene with the people in beds.

    I love that middle section where the camera pans across the set and shows the tracks in the middle. That part kills me, I love it. Apparently Billy had to fight to keep that in the video. The director thought it killed the illusion.

  3. I did not have MTV when the song was new. It was banned at Ricks.

    However, one of my roommates got the CD write away. It hit a chord with us because we had the tradition of referring to each other as whores.

    Thanks for some of the background. I would never show an edited version. Billy’s version must be true.

  4. I was also introduced to the Pumpkins at BYU-Idaho, though it was around 2002 when the name had been changed. There were some important locals there who opened my eyes to some great music.
