    Deep is the most underrated song in NIN's entire back catalogue. I actually think its one of NIN's top 5 song EVER. I never understood why people disliked it when it first came out back in 2001.
    Prehaps maybe it was the Tomb Raider association? Or was it the video? I think the video is one of NIN'S best too!!! WTF? Its very eye-catching and colorful . I love the concept, video is about color. Green, Orange, Yellow! Its very camp, which is what i dont think people got. Its in your face. Big car crash, bank robbery, cheezy t.v reporter. Trent does not seem like he is taking himself too seriously. His acting is terrible, but its fun, i also really liked the female actress in the video too. *If it had had a tiny bit more cash injected into it, it would be other than Closer NIN best video.

    But the song on the otherhand is fucking brilliant, its a pop song, plain and simple, its like if NIN went pop. Its the perfect way to introduce people to NIN. The beat is tremendous. I love the chorus, its dark, sexy and its just fun. Bit of light relief after the Fragile. But the best part of the song without a doubt one of the best 'moments' in NINs history is that guitar breakdown at 2.20 and that wah wah wahing metallic guitar which slashes through the beat. Phenomenal. Exhilarating and the video got it perfect.

    Just dont understand how this song could be seen as below NINs expectations? Its brilliant and nothing ( Maybe Sunspots) on the more commercially accessible With Teeth came close to it.

    ^ Yeah I always liked Deep. I remember on the old ETS there was a thread about it and the general opinion was that it was a good track. If it was on The Fragile I would have been okay with it replacing The Wretched, or Starfuckers. Same for Love is Not Enough on With Teeth.

    Anywho, I spent tonight watching And All That Could Have Been, Beside You in Time, & AVOTT (the Gift) dvd's in order, back to back. Now all I can think about is when the hell will they release all that stuff they're sitting on! It's gonna be amazing.

    "Deep" is an okay song but its production didn't quite hit the sweet spot, like a few good motifs that were wrung out to the point of monotony. The live versions sounded great!

    I saw NIN do Deep live for the first time at the House of Blues in AC. It was so unexpected, and kicked so much ass. Everyone had so much fun during that song. For me, hearing Deep & Home for the first time live that night were the highlights of an overall really badass show.

    Anybody know how TR met/became friends with Trent Vanegas? TV seems like a cool enough guy, but not exactly the type you'd expect TR to warm up to.

    Wife had a baby today, so sleepless night. Just laying here chilling and...

    The Theme from Tetsuo the Bullet Man may be my favourite thing Trent has done in 5 years.

    No idea what the general opinion of the track is but it's just so dramatic. Stirs something inside. Loved it before I saw the movie. (While I didn't like the film the piece is a brilliant fit).

    So... Yeah.

    I'm not sure if those fragments of hard drive posted in NIN Spotting are really cool or really creepy...

    So...I hear there's some old music-to-purchase and people-to-work-with-as-Tapeworm lists floating around out there.

    I don't really care about anyone's opinions about how they were procured.

    I'm a music geek and a NIN fan

    This information would be FASCINATING and likely point me in some very intriguing directions for my next musical purchases, not to mention the inherent fun of "What If...?" games.

    PM, plz?

    :)

    I think it'd be cool if Trent posted more literature that inspired his music, as he did in the YZ ARG.

    Observing what other acts like Madonna and Van Halen subject their fans to makes me really miss TR. Charging astronomical prices for tickets and ignoring scalpers insures only a privileged few get to attend shows and disappointment for the rest.

    NOT ENOUGH FAP

    last time I asked Rob, he said they didn't have up to date data, so I imagine it's available, but not easily enough for them to care for a free album.

    Just a point. It's so fucking cool that TR/NIN makes the most trippiest amazing thoughtful music ever to me. And it seems like he does it for the fans. Is'nt it great!! It is, that's why we're here and why he does it






    prolly shoulda put that in the drunk tank but it's true

    Made me smile.

    I used to have a The Downward Spiral bootleg shirt in my first or second year of high school. It was printed on a low quality shirt and I wore the shit out of it. (I still have it).

    But recently I found it again, same model, but printed on a heavy Fruit of The Loom shirt:
    http://www.bestial.ro/magazin-2-tric...tr_fr_169.html

    Just ordered it.
    Btw, for those wondering, it was $10.

    Oh no, someone gave him free exposure for an image that is publicly available on the internet, and made it easy for him to remove it if he so wishes! THE BASTARDS.

    But yeah, Tumblr is a "haven" for copyright infringement in so far as people post a lot of stuff on it. The fact that most people wouldn't credit or link to source, and that some would actually remove the watermark, kinda says this guy has no idea what going on.
