The Smashing Pumpkins, at the Nokia Theatre in Grand Prairie last Sunday, love the DFW -- or, at the very least, our wimmins. Best show ever? So says drummer Jimmy Chamberlin in this brief clip, his reasons amplified by a grinning, thumbs-up William Corgan Jr. In other pickings from the local random video clippings pile, can anyone explain the one after the jump featuring Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry? "I'm ready to fire it up." "Light it up." Awesome. --Robert Wilonsky
