    I have been doing a "poem a day" challenge to help me get over some emotional trauma. Still in the early phases, and I'm not typically a poet, but it's been fun to scrap together random ideas. Today, I found myself writing about Trent. I felt like sharing, and reading more writing if anyone else has ever done the same.

    The Gift of the Road Trip

    In the 90s, you said that when your fullest sense of the world
    Comes from what’s programmed and
    Beamed down to your dusty, isolated, small town television set,
    The implicit message is that none of what appears on the screen
    Could ever really be
    “For you”;
    None of its images or stories

    None of its places or people
    Not even its sound
    Could ever be things you truly
    “move with.”
    I’ve always known you were right
    And I learned on my own that
    When you can never feel part of the outside
    Resentment
    Becomes a comfort
    And your four walls
    A dead womb.

    Teenaged, I watched you clear all the light from a screen.
    Your dark silhouette and the slow pull of your hand
    Cloaked the vibrant terror behind you in erasure’s dark curtain,
    Until once again you emerged
    To invert twilight into dawn.
    The dopamine drip made my limbs quiver and shake and move
    Even long after you said goodnight to the ghouls
    and your sound disappeared
    Between the red rocks.

    Ten years later, I passed your childhood town

    Unexpectedly:
    A spot in the road called Mercer, in Pennsylvania,
    Pop. 1,911.
    I stopped to see the
    Gravel roads and boarded up houses,

    The suspicious stares and a red brick school building;
    The gas stations like the ones everywhere else and
    Large confederate flags in Northern lawns.
    It was an atrophied place, lit by the glow of television.
    I laughed at my reflection
    I got the hell out
    I moved with a world

    Terrible Little Lies

    I'm good with this as long as all music videos are produced and directed by Ken Ehrlich

    As of now I just wanted to say that I am very happy and satisfied to now have both Not The Actual Events and Add Violence on CD.

    Thanks again, Trent Reznor.

    Now we only have to wait for Deviations, Before the Flood and surely Patriots Day on CD.

    Trent dislikes CDs, I dislike vinyl. Oh, well.

    For some reason, I keep imagining Trent saying "I'm gonna dive and slam" during the chorus part of 10 Miles High. It's amazing.

    If I recall correctly, I listened to year zero every day for about five years.

    I really enjoy reading all of the different email sign-off’s. Wonder who exactly is writing them? This one gave me a good laugh.

    Whatever happened with that song title ? I'm sure it actually was on the official ASCAP database. I'm thinking it sounds like a Fight Club type of thing, perhaps for that possibly ill fated musical

    I was just listening to “I Have The Touch” by Peter Gabriel and thought it would be a perfect song for Trent to cover.

    there's a LOT of PG songs i'd love to hear trent cover. if it was still 1994 trent, i'd want "shock the monkey" (though it's a bit of an obvious choice). these days i'd love to hear him do something like "exposure" with pino on bass.

    Laced Records is putting out Mick Gordon's original DOOM game soundtrack on vinyl & CD. I wonder if they will also be the ones who eventually put out the TR/NIN Quake soundtrack on vinyl...

    the 4x10" steven universe set that iam8bit put out is incredible. i finally listened to it over the weekend and it sounded fantastic. not to mention the remarkable packaging.

    It would be nice to see NIN partner with one of these smaller labels to do the non-Interscope reissues, going forward (ie. The Slip, Quake etc.), for further 'Definitive' vinyl/digital remasters. Perhaps they would even license one of them to do Still as a stand-alone EP... TR or AR can write the essays this time! Would be great to see and hear these remasters eventually.

    The Tension tour footage on the YouTube Vevo channel still has the Spring 2014 Blu-ray release date and promises tons of extra content, surround sound and more. I would absolutely love to hear Black Noise somewhat the way it was intended since no one got to see it internationally, I doubt YouTube does it much justice

    Between the footage they have of all the Wave Goodbye club shows (besides Webster Hall) and the MIA Tension release (which sounds like it was going to include multiple shows and lineups from 2013-2014), there is so much amazing documentation of Nine Inch Nails live that will probably never see the light of day and that is just depressing. Like it is practically criminal to never release the Wave Goodbye footage.

    Remember this video?

    Now imagine a whole DVD of that. Any one of the shows they filmed at that time would be an unbelievable release.

    If they had an official NIN release of the TDS show, they would single handedly end the market on live DVD's from other musicians because it would be so fucking good.
