    I try to console myself that saying that TR did not intend to keep us waiting in silence for this length of time and that something has happened in the background that we are unaware of....because if this silence was intentional after that December tweet, well that's just REALLY mean!

    The fact that we are getting excited about Charlie Clouser interviews in NIN Spotting is quite telling.

    What I find kind of sad is that Clouser is now in Richard Patrick's situation... "Soooooo you're working on stuff now aaaand.... Nine Inch Nails,right? Right? Tell us about that."
    At least Vrenna is subject to "Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson, that was awesome."

    Well if the journo is up to speed on Vrenna, its NIN, Manson and the Psyclon Nine controversy.

    When it comes to former bands overshadowing current works, I'm not quite sure Psyclon Nine can cut it, honestly...

    You're right. No question of that. It is alleged that Chris may not have been appropriately compensated for his work with that band, and this in conjunction with the Kickstarter campaign fiasco, raises questions.

    The question is where the hell is Daniel Patrick "Danny" Lohner (born December 13, 1970), frequently known as Renholdėr.

    That one with Tyler the Creator is great. His eyes say "I don't know what's going on but here I am."

    I had a dream last night that something was announced on NIN.com about an October release, and I was typing a post saying how we get new NIN and finding out who Negan killed on The Walking Dead around about the same time. And naturally how thrilled I was.

    But then again, that might have been a dream

    I like to imagine what was going through in Trent's head when he commissioned Eugene to remix Everything: "All right, here's the vocal track. I want you to FUCK IT UP. Like, completely. FUCK EVERYTHING."

    It's like that one meme. (Forgive me, please.)

    "What kinda cut you want?"

    "Just fuck me up."

    The bigger question is, given how talented he is, why did he leave NIN? And not become a permanent member of A Perfect Circle?

    I mean just listen to his fucking remix of The Outsider by APC and The Undertaker by Puscifer. And Bowie's Bring Me The Disco King.

    And his remixes of Underneath The Stars and Apart by The Cure.

    Danny Lohner is just like this super talented fuck who just gets forgotten or cast aside for Christ knows what reason. He should have and should be in the picture so much more. It's The Great NIN-Related Mystery in my opinion. Maybe he's just an angel who only appears now and then to bless us with awesome shit.

    Danny also did a sick contribution to a LoL (League of Legends) song a few years back. I'd totally listen a whole record of those.

    The other day I was watching random ass Metallica videos and I saw Danny auditioned for them as a bassist. It was so strange! Danny was long gone when I got into NIN, but I always imagined him as this multi-talented, jack of all trades creative musician, and not someone who would seriously stick to playing bass on such a serious level as with a band like Metallica. Then again, I have no idea how good of a bassists he was/is. Btw Jeordie auditioned for that role too!

    I've actually thought about Echoplex as a name for a Nine Inch Nails forum ever since The Slip came out, as far as a name that still had the word echo in it. Echoplex also looks very nice on the eyes, sounds nice on the ears, and it's a lot shorter to type for the sake of ease and convenience as well. (This isn't to say that ETS is hard to type by any means either, especially since it's become like a reflex to me for quite some time.)

    hey, not being troll-y or provoking...seriously asking:
    do you feel trent owes us, period?
    i know he said new nin this year, but does that truly make him obligated?
    just curious...

    I wouldn't use the term "owed" because I've paid nothing for anything not yet delivered, but I do think it's a matter of keeping your word and a sign of good faith that when you say "I'll be putting this thing out in this time frame" that you do it, and, if not, be as transparent as possible as to why not.

    In general I think NIN fans would be far less bitchy about unreleased things if Trent just took the six minutes to write an iPhone note on why ______ isn't out yet and post it on any variety of websites. It's really not hard to do that. It's the hard promises followed by utter silence that breed a lot of frustration.

    If a piece of art isn't finished to someone's satisfaction by some point they said they would release it, it's perfectly understandable to keep working on it until it's "perfect".

    Also, he's given us The Slip and the first part of Ghosts for free... so I think his owing account is out of the red.

    What, you release an album like The Slip for free and that means he can later "cash in" on that and just disappear for years without releasing anything of great relevance under the moniker of NIN? Not even a Q&A or status update to at least TELL US where his mind is and where he sees NIN in the coming years. As I said, Trent is terrible in the PR department, so basically we are either swimming in new goodies or we can go fuck ourselves, but not much in-between.

    Who knows, maybe months from now he comes out with the Tension DVD, a free new record, The Fragile Reissue and a 1,5 years long tour then we won't hear about NIN for a good 5 years, aside from random new merchandises.

    Trent should own himself with respecting NIN and its legacy. Yes, he could literally stop producing anything NIN related stuff and he'd have enough money and work opportunities to even feed his great grandkids, but - in my eyes - it's not cool that he doesn't seem to respect the fact that he used to be Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails, and not Trent Reznor, who by the way also runs NIN.

    Absolute radio silence, then boom, out of nowhere Cargo in(/of?) Blood, buy it, thanks bye. Oooh, now you can use your Facebook page? Give me a break. People just keep justyfying it with some bullshit explanations like "ooooh if you've been around during The Fragile..." or "oooh, he's like that!" Just no.

    ^^^Cargo in the Blood was worth every penny, it's beautiful.

    But yes about the PR aspect. Remember when Trent was giving advice to new artists in this day and age, either on that Digg interview or a blog post, "keep putting new content on your website. Give people a reason to keep coming back"! Come on take your own advice Trent.

    EDIT : I found the blog post and to be fair it was specific to new bands but the subtext of that is, if you're established you can take fans for granted but I honestly don't think that is true anymore
    http://forum.nin.com/bb/read.php?30,...183#msg-767183

    The thing is, I have been a fan since 1992 so I experienced the 2 droughts of NIN in the mid to late 90s and early 2000s. To be honest it didn't bother me unduly then because I wasn't online. But now social media has happened expectations have just changed I can't deny it

    I truly do not see why somebody -- Rob, Trent, Leo Herrera -- can't just say "Hey, The Fragile Deluxe Edition is snagged up because of legal trouble and we'll say something the minute we can move forward with it" if that's the issue. Billy Corgan did that with the Machina reissue -- literally a few months after talking about it, instead of years, and nobody got upset at him since they understood the situation. If that's not the issue, then they could still do the same with whatever it is. It's fucking annoying.

    I don't think the residential douchebags in the NIN fanbase would be doing the old song and dance about the Tension blu ray if they just had come out and said "We can't release it because _____." A lot of people asssume it may have to do with song rights issues -- which I could totally see -- just fuckin' tweet that.

    It's weird being a big Smashing Pumpkins fan since there is so much transparency, for better or for worse, while also being so into NIN, where we pretty much never know anything until something is actually put out. I get Trent's got a weird set of standards, but, good Christ, can the Everything or the Every Day ... videos truly be any shittier than Deep? Is it so much to ask to just get an announcement about when something is scrapped? Etc. It's a real bitch at times and so many trolls make digital careers out of harping on this shit.

    and what makes things worse? well.. theres the one troll and then theres the few that give reasons as to why certain projects haven't been released and the conversation keeps going in circles.
    you are right about commenting on projects that still haven't been released.

    he doesn't even have to involve other websites either, making comments on nin.com would be good enough but hey... apparently his fans aren't important enough for him? i dunno...

    Sometimes the legal trouble doesn't let you talk about the legal trouble - video game No Man's Sky was caught in years-long legal battles with uk tv provider Sky over name usage and couldn't tell anyone that was a reason for game delays until after the fact. If someone is holding it all up, it might be out of their hands, and leaking it as a fuck you would be a great way to get sued to kingdom come
