    What's good, folks?

    College student studying digital arts and cinema. Been a NIN fan since middle school. Spent high school tracking down every halo that was released on CD plus odds and ends like Into the Void, etc. Looks like those days may be over if Trent continues to release music independently. Guess it's time to embrace the digital era.

    Been lurking on here a while and decided it was time to officially join my fellow Nine Inch Nerds. Loving NTAE!

    I'm not really DRUNK but whiskey diets are dope as fuck.

    EDIT: I'm sorry @Leviathant I thought this was the drunk tank for some reason. I guess I WAS a little more than tipsy last night.

    Hey guys, joined about a month ago, been a NIN fan for 3 years. I'm a high school student, and I like running, movies, MMA, acting, lifting, writing, making short films, Stephen King novels, school, law, and girls. Really like being able to talk about NIN w/ others now!

    Hello fellow NIN fans!

    Something important happened to me in 2002: I listened to "Deep" for the first time. It was some pirate audio cassette of a Tomb Raider soundtrack. How awesome that song was!
    Then I was carried away by Rammstein and didn't get a chance to dig into the Nine Inch Nails catalogue.
    Thanks God I decided to give it another try a few years ago Now I can't get enough of it.
    P.S.: "Deep" is still one of my all-time favs!

    I like music. Especially good music. So it was only natural I'd end up on here eventually. Currently spending wayyyyyy too much time lurking on here.

    First discovered NIN in 99 when a friend who had just bought The Fragile asked me if I would swap a copy of Slipknots' debut album for it. LOL. Obviously, I took him up on the offer. I wonder how often he throws on that Slipknot CD, and is blown away by its hidden depths? Fucking LOL. I'll never forget that first listen through. Basically been my musical obsession since.

    I'm also one of those annoying-for-some-on-this-board types who comes out of the woodwork for a new release, soon to disappear back into obscurity, once all there is left to talk about are things like the name of Trents' children. (Things I really don't need or want to know about). Looking around the index pages there are plenty of other things on here to keep me interested though, and there seems to be a nice sense of community, so maybe I'll get to know some of you better...

    I'm new. I do bookkeeping and stuff. I also like to draw and paint. I have all of NIN's albums. I've seen NIN live only once. NIN has always been my favorite band.

    Hello all. Brand new here but have been a lurker since around '08. Discovered NIN back in 2004 when I saw the videos for "Head Like a Hole" and "Wish" on TV late one night. I quickly became obsessed after purchasing Pretty Hate Machine, Broken, The Fragile, and the March of the Pigs and Closer to God singles. All of the hype over the release of [With_Teeth] sealed the deal for me. I have been a committed fan ever since, having the good fortune to witness NIN live from 2008 up to 2014. Mr. Reznor and co. have since and will continue to always be a massive inspiration to me and all of my creative endeavors.

    Reason for reaching out at last is that I finally feel as though I have something to contribute to the community in the form of this new musical project I started earlier this year. Being a total novice when it comes to making any kind of music, I've begun this process by currently specifically focusing on remixes until such time as I feel ready to release original material. In that sense, I believe my second release may be of interest to members of this forum:

    https://soundcloud.com/user-61596964...haeotherium-ep

    This is the first of several NIN remix projects I have planned. Very much looking forward to seeing what people think. Hope you all enjoy the music!

    Hello, I have been a NIN fan since 2000 when I purchased the Fragile when I was 13 years old (don't know how I managed to buy it due to to parental discretion label!), it blew me away and I discovered the rest of the catalogue soon after. My favorite concert experience was seeing NIN with QOTSA and Death From Above 1979 in 2005. I'm now 30 years old and still rocking to NIN, and will probably do it for another 30 or so years!

    Other bands/artists I like: QOTSA, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Audioslave, Filter, Army of Anyone, Morphine, Big Sugar, Kyuss, City and Colour, and Alice In Chains.

    I'm 37, been a fan since 92'/93' when I was in middle school. Saw ETS mentioned on twitter today and just joined this evening - hoping to get involved with whatever comes out of this new ARG.

    Hi to all.
    I am new to ETS. Spiral was my first -any and all- type of 'forum, chatroom, and fan member site' (Dauphinesdumaine/Dauphine). I discovered Spiral to be a fun experience in which I was able to easily disengage from my reality of pressures, politics, and at times -soul tolling- work in a medical field environment. Spiral was all about fun and adventure and bonding with people over a common passion and NIN being the starter block of that common something. I met a lot of ppl through the Spiral connection and was privileged enough to share in fun adventures, lewd content, and questionable choices and behaviors with some of those ppl. An experience I did not know would happen when I chose to sign up and pay for that membership **hell it was fun and worth every copper penny**. After Spiral was retired, for me there was NIN.COM. I found NIN.COM was not able to hold onto that something *special energy* (for lack of a better description) that Spiral was carved from. It just wasn't the same. After waiting for that something *special* to return to something NIN related: I have found myself in the land of ETS. I was always such a die hard Spiral junkie and did not enjoy the drama fueled stories of ETS VS SPIRAL; though both groups of ppl had a passion for NIN in common, they did not play well together. I am warming up to ETS and so far it isn't the negative soul sucking poke fest I thought it would be. And now that I've outed myself and told my story it remains to be seen what truths are hidden in the land of ETS
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it...

    Your outing has inspired my own. Spiral reject also present. Same name there.

    Guess I should do an intro. Old spiral member, Disafect666 here. Miss that place. Quiet lurker. Antisocial. I confess, I miss the nin community. Happy to be back.

    Hey all! Never been on Spiral, but was pretty active on the NIN.com forums for quite a while. Have lots of friends on here, but never poked around. In light of all the possible ARG excitement (not to mention--just the real, true excitement that comes from talking with other die hard NIN fans), I decided to finally get my butt on here!

    So...hi, fellow ninnies.

    Hi all! Former Spiral member here, late joiner to the party (I lost myself for a while and just starting to find it all over again now), and totally in love with the fact that NIN is not just about music. I missed The Year Zero chase so much, I started again with Add Violence and found this site, thankfully. I've ended up surrounding myself with people who don't like the same music as me, don't like the same films or books. I love having differences to discuss, but sometimes I miss fan-girling the hell out of shit.

    I discovered NIN "by accident". I used to flick through the only music channels worth it on Sky (back in the day when there were any) and a video was on MTV2 that I liked the sound of but I thought I should check the other two channels first. Checked them, nothing there. So back to this crazy ass, absinthe fueled mess with an incredible soundtrack and I was hooked. Thank you "The Perfect Drug". I've seen them twice so far, and fully intend on making the most of the fact that I'm old enough now to have "expendable income" and stalk the tour announcements.

    I tend to be a lurker who rarely does anything but I think it's time to change that, so bear with me and I cant wait to relive Secondary School days obsessing about music and that comes with it!

    I've been lurking on this forum for a long-ass time. Probably since around the time The Spiral fell apart. It's usually my first source for any NIN-related news. Over the 20ish years I've obsessed on Nine Inch Nails they've slowly drifted out of my top spot for favorite band (haven't loved much of the new stuff.) But the intrigue around the new EP's and the re-release of their classics on vinyl has me rediscovering what I always loved most about this band - the mystery and excitement around releases. No one else drums up the kinda giddy joy I get out of hearing a new NIN tune.

    So, that's basically it...Hi everyone!

    I remember when ETS started through I haven't always been active. Past handles; prettyhatemachine , fr4giLity - I have too many emails and passwords to count so naturally I couldn't login again after long periods of absence. Did a small Nola NIN message board meet up back in 2003. Met up with some msg board locals depending where I lived at the time. Since being back, seeing lots of names I vaguely remember, but can't recall the persona. Biggest claim to my NIN street cred is I caught TRez tambourine during the With Teeth tour. Definitely the one thing I'd rescue from a fire, besides my cat. Anyway hi.

    Hi all. I am all shiny and new to this forum, and to be honest, a bit shiny and new to being a NIN fan.

    My wife and her brother have always been HUGE fans, and while I quite liked them, I never really "got it" in the same way. My first NIN gig was the With Teeth tour in 2005, and we've been a few times since (they don't play the UK as much as USA).
    So last week, I was talking to my bro-in-law about Add Violence, and he mentioned that there might be another Year Zero style ARG in the making. I missed the whole YZ thing really, although I had heard little bits about it. I listened to the new EP and just loved it. Then I made a critical error. I started googling for stuff to do with this potential new ARG and stumbled here, and the NIN wiki, and now I fear I am slightly obsessed. In a good way, obvs. I got this way with Lost when it was on, loved the theorising, and the countless easter eggs to find.

    It's got me listening to NIN in a completely different way. Almost to the point I feel YZ is an entirely different album to the one I first heard 10 years ago.

    So anyway, that's me. Hello.

    I always find myself coming back here sooner or later. Might as well say hi and maybe drop a line every now and then.
    Not much to say about myself, I'm from Germany and have been in love with NIN for over a decade.

    Hi, I'm new here

    I started listening to nin when I was 14... was aware of them as a kid though, since I'm a 90s kid and saw the videos nonstop on tv. For that reason, nin has more sentimental value to me than most music. I also am a big fan of the film scores, they're very inspiring.

    I'll keep the "about me" brief as I'm not interesting really. I play guitar, piano, and sing. I started playing electronic music but moved from that since I wanted to learn other instruments. I also am into fashion and design.

    I find this forum and community to be very intimidating but will stick around.

    Hi!

    Welcome to ETS!

    I just wanted to say that it saddens me a bit that you say that you're not really interesting. Everyone is interesting to me and I'm sure that there is a lot about you that is unique and that you can share when you're ready and willing to.

    I would not call us intimidating but I would say that we are passionate. But we welcome every new perspective and opinions and I hope you'll be able to share yours with all of us.

    I hope to see you around!

    Thank you for the really sweet response. I’m glad to be here. You said a lot of nice things in that post. ��
