    After hearing live performances of Starfuckers, Inc. I can say that the studio version is too slow

    These vinyl remasters are all well and good for those of you into that but I still want my Fragile 5.1 mix

    06/06/06 Birmingham is my favorite live version of it.

    I forgot how fucking good WITT is. I think it's been a while since I've actually listened to this song (vs it just being on while I'm doing other things), and I have no idea why. Holy shit.

    Especially with the Pellington intro and the full D1 ending!

    How fucking awesome is the part in MOTP from AATCHB when he goes, (before I type this let me state I'm not sure how to write exhaling breath noises) "heh, heh, heh, heh come right fucking down". So badass.

    I wish we could have some more information about these two NIN projects happening this year. I'm getting a bit impatient now

    Random NIN Thoughts

    Last time, we waited almost a whole year. Settle in, my friend.

    I'm utterly love with the cheesy, dated-as-fuck verses and overall sound of Ringfinger. The composition itself is so strong that the goofy, dorky New Wave indulgence of it is just so fucking charming. It kicks an enormous amount of ass and gets away with so much more than it should.

    Also, Trent's delivery on "Wrap my eyes in bandages" is just amazing.

    I seriously want them to play it live again. I think a re-worked version ala Sanctified would be great.

    The end of Hurt is fucking brutal man. That way loud, harsh distortion combined with those 3 specific notes combined with the way the drums completely stop as those notes are played COMBINED with the outro drone....hurts so good no pun intended. Best album ending ever. Any one else would've had the drums hit hard along with those last 3 notes, like the live version if I remember correctly. Probably translates better live with the crashes.

    Does anyone else here follow Kraw on Instagram? Between his random potshots at Pitchfork and his hilarious photos/videos of his pets, dude has become one of my go-to follows on IG for daily entertainment..

    Trent seems to dig art directors with a sense of humor. Remember Rob's Demonbaby blog?

    I was just remembering the NiN logo in a DooM map from Thy Flesh Consumed.

    There's a metronome at the very end of Just Like You Imagined. Thanks, 2017 DE.

    There are so many hidden nuggets on that album that the DE has "unearthed". It would be fascinating to do a track-by-track comparison.

    Much like the album as released in '99, I reckon we'll be discovering new elements/constituents for years to come. That LP has been such a beautiful gift to us over the years.

    It's a crime "You Know What You Are?" doesn't appear in live shows anymore.

    That one post with his dog and then the Fragile vinyl appears. Pure gold.

    Speaking of, I wonder why TR removed the static from the song in the DE version? Especially that awesome static at the end - now it's just the piano.

    That's only the alt mix on Deviations 1. The proper Fragile DE still has the static like normal.

    Needed to change something? Everything else was the same! Or maybe it really was in consideration for the album.

    Just Like You Imagined is the most epic piece of music written by anyone. Ever.

    I got a much older co worker into NIN and explained to him that NIN, there is more to them, then just "Closer" and "Hurt", that there is a lot there. As our discussions about music went on, I burned him a cd of The Fragile (I have bought it enough times I can burn somebody a copy if I want to), (I would have given him a flash drive but all he has is a CD player in his car). He fucking loves it. Now he has all the NIN cd's we have these heavy discussions about music all the time. He is a Rolling Stones fan and I told him I love the Stones, and we have had heavy discussions about Chopin, Miles Davis, John Coltrane. He literally has had the first disc of The Fragile in his car stereo for a couple months now. I explained to him that if you go to an NIN show there is a band, but NIN is really just one guy, Trent Reznor. He is like, "that is one talented motherfucker".
    This whole thing started when everybody at work was watching "Westworld" and he asked me what the song was in one of the episodes, I said it was "Something I can Never Have" by NIN. After he searched them and heard "Closer" and "Hurt" our discussions began.
