Maybe Billy Corgan Is This Totally Insane Creature

Inside MACHINA, the Smashing Pumpkins’ mad, misunderstood masterpiece. Dismissed in 2000 as the work of an egomaniac, the project instead shows Billy Corgan fearlessly deconstructing his ego and belief mechanisms, and coming to some scary conclusions.

Discussed: C.G. Jung, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, John Lennon/Plasic Ono Band, primal therapy, Ingmar Bergman’s Through a Glass Darkly, The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, Malignant Self-Love: Narcissism Revisited by Sam Vaknin, Disarming the Narcissist by Wendy Behary
