    What 95-96 VHS Closure bootlegs are you talking about? I'm not aware of any.

    Ah, you were sort of quoting Trent from the old NIN.com Q&A section. I thought he referred to it as a "guilt-free download." A long time ago now, but it was super fun to get that and the Broken movie.

    sorry-
    i am feeling like an idiot right about now.
    the '95 VHS bootleg is The Broken Movie (which is packed away right now...)
    i don't know why, but i confused The Closure with Broken and some how they became the same thing in my head (?)..
    (prob because some of the same music videos popped up in both of them?)
    ugh!

    ...this insomnia is killing me slowly i tell you

    When I read your post I thought about the broken movie bootleg coz I was gifted a copy on my seventeenth birthday in 1995.

    I watched it with my friends who gave it to me. I remember them being like uh wtf did we just watch?

    I kind of feel bad watching Atticus in some of these recent interviews. He strikes me as being very introverted and not as eager to speak up as Trent is. That said, he does seem to have thoughtful answers to questions that are posed to him.

    There's actually a band called Nails too, which could be confusing. I have on occasion referred to NIN as "nails," just to abbreviate it in a conversation. What irks me is when people actually pronounce "NIN" as a three-letter, one-syllable word. That, I think, sounds dumb.

    Yeah, I know about that band, and I agree it's confusing, though they should've thought of that before settling on that name. It's like calling your band The Stones or The Pistols or something.

    When I wrote my previous post, I was thinking about how it doesn't bother me when people say Nails, but it does annoy me when they pronounce "NIN" (unless they're saying nin.com or something), so I'm totally with you there. I also talked to a woman once who was talking about how many "Nine Inch Nail Concerts" she had been to- I cannot abide by that kind of haphazard S displacement.

    Anyway, back on topic...

    I love this! I’ve done the exact same thing myself, just as recently as a few months ago around the time Add Violence came out. I love the ending of Closure from the moment the Bowie/Trent version of Hurt begins, to that epic live version of SICNH, and then that beautiful tour montage set to A Warm Place. Such a great 15 minutes, and a wonderful end to such a brilliant tour doc. I also love watching all the music videos on the second disc; that one starts with a haunting montage set to AWP too, and has those disturbing interludes between the official videos that still creep me out.

    Its funny because I actually bought the Jim Rose Circus live from Moore Theatre DVD based on the brief footage seen in Closure. It’s pretty fucked up what those dudes would do every night during their shows. Manson was particularly impressed with the Jim Rose act on the Self Destruct tour and wrote about it extensively in his autobiography, if I remember correctly..

    You have to get Closure on DVD!

    The first big major concert I went to ever....
    started with some band I knew almost nothing about called Marilyn Manson. I think you know how that went. It ended with him completely naked, humping the keyboard before Pogo carried him off stage
    then came Jim Rose circus with people swinging cinder blocks off of their nipples and the like.
    Then came NIN in the height of Trent's destructive phase. When the curtain dropped for the interlude, I thought the show was over because after that destructive onslaught during HiS, I didn't think he had any instruments left to play on. My thought was "that was awesome but short"

    Needless to say that spoiled me.

    Agreed, but they kick all sorts of ass so it's forgivable. Completely unrelenting band.

    Oddly I have no problem with pronouncing the word "NIN" but think "Nails" sounds like corny fratbro speak.

    I've heard so many live arrangements of Hurt. After watching the Panorama NYC Festival pro-shot, I have to say that, without a doubt, the 2017 version is the greatest one, both sonically and visually. They even brought back the "pre-delayed" (for lack of a better word) chorus from the album version.

    I said "NIN" once many years ago and it immediately felt awkward and wrong, LOL. But I prolly wouldn't fault someone else for saying it, though.

    When Trent starts things back up every few years, my wife makes fun of my excitement and the plans we make by saying that I/we are "NIN-ning" once again.

    I've always said nin. It's never occurred to me that it sounds weird.

    Yeah I don't have a problem with saying "nin" casually. It's like saying "gif" or any other acronym.

    @Prettybrokenspiral - Thanks for the reminder. I'll try to get Closure on DVD, since I've watched it so much on VHS anyway, and just for the sake of convenience as I no longer have any actual functioning VCRs anymore. I'm also glad to know that I'm not the only one. There's something so satisfying about chilling to Sanctified, Piggy and The Only Time on Closure. I also love the scenes that built up to Piggy, with The Perfect Drug (Spacetime Continuum) all.

    And thanks to Closure, a part of me is tempted to scream, "Whoever threw that, fuck you, all right?" in the middle of Something I Can Never Have, and "What did you throw up here? What did you throw? Can I offer you a towel in exchange? Thanks man." in the middle of The Only Time if it's ever performed again.

    And even so, I still can't stop filling in those quotes by Trent mentally every time I listen to Something I Can Never Have and The Only Time.

    I've also said NIN, as I've been around other fans that have said NIN, but in most cases, I just say Nine Inch Nails. I just like the way it sounds in full, and have gotten used to saying it. And it's not like I've gotten a chance to talk about NIN that much anyway, since I don't know that many fans in real life.

    I'm also sure it's because I've also been asked, "What's a NIN?" and "What's NIN?" whenever I wore NIN shirts before, so I just make it a habit to say Nine Inch Nails.

    It's also kind of like how I'm also used to saying Marilyn Manson instead of just MM, Mr. Manson or Manson.

    I hate that the description of NIN on Apple Music says "Nine Inch Nails WERE the most popular industrial group..."

    WERE?! Wtf?! Did they get overtaken or something?

    Ehh, too late. Annual purchase and rigmarole all done with. But it reminded me that I forgot to pick up Juno.

    I knew it was going to be released on Bandcamp since Carpenter's Lost Themes albums were released on there through Sacred Bones. No need for iTunes here!

    The ending to Halloween is incredible. Anyone here the porn sample from Big Man With A Gun in it?

    So, this was brought to mind by the discussion over in the controversial opinions thread about versions of songs on Still vs original versions. I wish that SICNH on Still had somehow recreated the weird percussion sounds from the chorus of the original version, like with some janky DIY instruments.
