    I got that hat for Christmas and I love it. I've wanted some bandwear for a while, but they don't sell shirts that would fit my rather rotund size.

    It really is. People here have always been generally pretty cool.

    Not sure why you are being antagonistic instead of friendly? This is supposed to be a NIN Fan Forum where people are NICE TO EACH OTHER.
    Is that you, bill? How did you like NTAE and AV?

    nope, bill's been around for a while and has actually been pretty cool for the most part. this person seems legitimately unhinged...

    i'm actually fairly certain empire thinks johnny depp and trent reznor are the same person.

    You mean to say they aren't?

    Damn, and here I was hoping that TR/MM threesome in Manson's latest video was real.

    No, YOU said the picture is from 2017 and claimed that the Guardian lied about publishing their story in 2013 based on the fact that the photo was taken - again, in your own words - in 2017. I merely pointed out that you were objectively wrong by citing an incidence of the photo being published in 2012. Trent's hair hasn't been chin-length since about the mid-2005s if I recall correctly (I saw them for the first time in 2006 and it was a buzz cut).

    I say this with all sincerity, for the second time: if you're not trolling, please get help. I have no reason to dislike you. But your claims are time and again outrageous and often objectively false. If you really believe the things you're saying, then I'm worried about your well-being.

    I grew my hair out the first time cuz I thought Trent looked like a badass.

    Sadly I don't think I ever looked quite as rad.

    I think you quoted the wrong person.

    @Empire I don't know what's going on with you but I have to wonder how you don't understand that people think you're a troll. You've already had fair warning. Claiming to know information about Reznor yet posting completely inaccurate info seems like you're purposely looking for attention. I moved your posts from nin spotting to your apology thread. Let's get back on topic here and tone down the trolling.

    You're right; fixed. Too much travel in one day = groggy commentator.

    Can't wait until the new EP and tour. Really depressed over the Manson show in Huntington Thursday night. Been looking forward to it for over 4 months and then was treated to a total shit show! Trent would never pull that shit...at least not nowadays...Been debating with people on the Manson Reddit, but most of them just defend him blindly and enable him...ive always been a big fan, but after the disaster on Thursday, I'm not sure if I continue being a fan of someone who acts like that with zero apology, explanation or remorse! All I know, is I'm eagerly waiting for some good news from Trent!

    What I'm hoping is that NIN are heavily influenced by Rolling Stones for the next EP or album.

    like how to put out the same album every few years for the last 3+ decades?

    look, i love the stones' early stuff, and they've had a few great songs in the last 35 years, but that's it. they haven't done anything interesting or innovative in a loooooong time. whereas TR+AR keep putting out stuff that sounds new and intriguing (even when it's not great it's still interesting). the last thing i want them to do is take a page out of the stones' book.

    like how to squeeze every last possible dollar out of their fans, totally coast on past glories for 2+ decades, burn fans who spent big money to travel to vegas for a show then cancel so they could make even more money playing a billionaires party? yes they did put out a servicable record a few years ago but it was all covers of classic blues songs. its to the point that it is embarrassing. the last decent tour was 15 years ago & that was a celebration of past. i used to be a huge stones fan but the last show i saw in 2012 was very disappointing & bigger bang tour wasn't much better. they play the same set that keeps getting shorter with maybe 2 songs that are a bit different from usual. its like they have become a parody of themselves & it makes me sad. they are like 1 of those bands on the native american casino circuit except they have better pr. & this really hurts to say: keith has pretty much lost it. he hasn't been the same since he fell out of the coconut tree. his playing is just not good now. i think trent & nin are just fine doing what they are doing & i wouldn't change anything. i am perfectly willing to take the ride wherever trent & his muse want to take me.

    I'm talking about how awesome Rolling Stones' songcraft was in their golden period. Their open A tunings and Bo Diddley strumming style. NIN could learn some different kinds of playing skills. I'm talking about the music and music skills and song craft. Rolling Stones released some of the greatest rock albums of all time according to hundreds of credible and well-respected critics.

    Sadly though, the last really good whole album was 1981 (Tattoo You). & that was sort of leftovers from the Emotional Rescue sessions for the most part. There have been good songs here & there since then but not many. Conversely, I think the 2 EPs last year (especially Add Violence) stand up with the rest of the NIN catalog. We won't even get into the soundtrack stuff. Some of that is absolutely stunning. 35 years is a pretty long time to wait for a good record. I liked some of Bridges to Babylon but there was a lot of filler. Remember, I was hard core Stones fan. I conned my parents into letting me drive to Boulder from Seattle to see the Some Girls tour when I was in high school. I'm just disappointed in the current Stones thing. I heard a tape from the first weekend of Desert Trip that was shockingly bad. The main problem I think is Mick has taken over & its all about the benjamins now. From Let It Bleed through Exile, nobody could touch the Stones. That's a pretty good run & they had a few more flashes. They should just retire now. The advantage that Trent has is NIN is Trent (& Atticus now). Everybody else can be replaced with no trauma for him. It's a singular vision with no one else competing to run things. Interesting tidbit: for me the Stones decline really began in earnest when it was decided to bring in back up singers. The last tour that Keith did the primary backup vocals was 1982 Europe. It changed the sound & dynamics a lot. The more extra musicians they added, the more it became the Rolling Stones Revue. Currently, Chuck Leavell is running the live band musically. He's a fine musician but totally wrong for them. Brought that jam band ethos into it & it's not pretty. As Mick once famously said "too many notes man".

    I wonder if while Trent was composing part of The Fragile if he may have been inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Some of the instrumentation really fits in with that film, and if you listen to “The New Flesh,” that feels absolutely in the same headspace. I’ve watched the film so many times, and while listening to its outstandingly eerie score, it sounds like something that Trent might compose.

    Sometimes a song plays in me head, and I realize it is somewhat related to what is happening around me or to me at the moment. Or I suddenly realize some WORDS are changed so it fits my current state. Words! And, I am no that good in english language, nor do I think I understand the songs that good to do this consciously by decision. It's like there was someone else in me having fun, like "hey, let's play him THIS SONG and see if he realizes why". :-) Don't worry, I'm OK and sober, it's just strange realization when this happens and I'm like "wait, where is THIS coming from...??" This thread because it happens with NIN mostly, maybe I feel NIN more than other music?

    Edit: "in ME head" - see? I can't fricking speak english! :-)
