    "She's Gone Away" going straight into The Platters on that new Twin Peaks soundtrack CD is, well, fucking genius; it rivals any of those bonkers segues from the Natural Born Killers OST. Kudos to the producers.

    Why did Reznor call "Demon Seed", "Demon Seed"?

    Just had to put it out there - 10/10, would absolutely put money down for one of those slipmats. Hopefully that's a store/tour item later on down the line.

    i love the extra play Rez/Ross/NIN are putting into these few (festival) shows.
    it puts a playful fun intimacy between idol and (die-hard) fans.
    its like when you are little and you feel obligated to go someplace with your parents; someplace you used to have so much fun at but now half the fun is in seeing if you recognize any friends that you can share the experience with--

    ...AND THEN YOU SEE IT
    the bounce house for the first time! and you get all excited from head to toes and before the words even form in your mind and reach your lips to ask for what you want, YOU ARE ALREADY RUNNING TO IT!
    somebody took the extra time and patience and thought to anticipate what was needed and delivered on a silver platter with a big red ribbon and said: 'here, this is for you!'

    thank you R/R/NIN!
    you have proved your greatness (in-kind) to your greatest fan-base!

    +1 on this, I've wanted a NIN slipmat forever.

    After seeing the setlist for Riot Fest, I am really looking forward to Aftershock next month.

    Damn. Not keen on anything Al has done for many years, but still, he remains a legend and it's nice seeing them both together.

    Anyway, re Kerrang! - I'm happy to pick up a copy if anyone is keen to get one.

    Very thoughtful and considerate of Al to be holding the beer bottle so close to Trent, considering TR is a recovering alcoholic and all lol

    It doesn't look like Trent minds all that much since he posted the photo of the two of them together. Also, this is a random nin comment and irrelevant to nin spotting.

    Upon rediscovery I find Hesitation Marks to be dark like rest of NIN discography. The album is full of emotions. While I'm Still Here still brings me to tears with how Trent delivers the line "So tired on my own"

    I find the album very "depressed", self loathing and even regretful in some ways.

    One of my favorite NIN records

    Re-listened to With Teeth today, never noticed the very quiet ambient synthesizer during the second verse of Right Where It Belongs.

    @Amaro - I wasn't too sure about posting this outside of Random NIN Thoughts.

    Anyway, your Bikes & Biking thread reminded me about this clip of Trent Reznor mentioning that he sometimes liked to ride his bicycle around New Orleans as a way to clear his head out.

    Jesus, I'm really in love with his delivery and attitude during the Burning Bright performances. I think I could listen to the man being loud and cheeky with a megaphone all day long, even without the music.

    My brother and sister-in-law were supposed to see U2 but that was cancelled, so he dropped the nephews off here anyway. His wife is a diehard U2 fan, and it being the "Joshua Tree" tour, I told my brother that I expect what she's feeling is what I would feel if it were TDS and then Trent had to cancel. I said, "Well, I've got your boys for the night, so go console wifey - hope the night gets better". He proceeded to small-talk and denigrate all NIN-product post-YZ, to which I said, "#1 Ghosts, dumbass".

    He said "Ghosts" and the soundtrack work was wonky electronic snooze-masturbation and I kinda wanted to smack the shit out of him. He also stated that last time he saw NIN was a bit "bleh", and then reminded me, incidentally, that I was watching his kids that night while they were at the show 4 years ago - I fucked up the date and agreed to babysit before I realized what was what. Fuckers didn't get me a shirt either. Still a little bitter about that lol.

    Seeing NIN live again has really reinvigorated my love for Add Violence.

    Here's a thought I had a few years back:

    Now we've been informed that "She's Gone Away" was written for Twin Peaks. "She's Gone Away" directly references "Reptile". So does that mean that "Reptile" is inspired by Laura's character and that perhaps the melody in "Reptile" is an intentional reference on TR's part?

    Quote from the Duffer brothers (creators of Stranger Things):

    There have been some artists who like the show, so we've gotten some really big songs for not extravagant prices. Musicians seem to have responded to the show.
    C'monnnnnnnnnn, TR & AR contribution!

    Reading between the lines of TR's comment that the music and sound design approach of The Downward Spiral were influenced by David Lynch I'd say, 100%, yes it is.
