    Had my first NIN dream the other night. I don't usually remember dreams, and this one was short.

    I was at a very small venue waiting for NIN to perform I'm assuming, when in walks TR.

    I was smoking a cig and blew some of the smoke into the doorway which TR walked in. I said "TR you're a huge inspiration for me!"

    TR engulfed with smoke turned around and gave me the most resentful and disgusted look only TR could.

    And that was that. I guess I have to stop smoking cigs or TR will shame me in real life!

    Eck.
    you do realize that short of lucid dreaming, folk don't actually program their dream content...so how is it creepy when one dreams of a band they like?
    fanfiction, which one has control over, can definitely be seen as creepy.

    nin/tr dreams: haven't had many in 20 years, lol, but back in my 20's i had tons of them. it was annoying at times. and, oddly, it was mostly fighting with tr.

    Yeah I know EXACTLY why I dreamed of NIN that night. They were replaying the grammys on E! and I was gonna watch the performance again. I turned the channel and forgot. Then when I turned back it JUST ended. I shut the tv off and was out like a light almost immediately so NIN was the last thing I thought about.

    I'm just mad TR was pissed at me.

    I had a dream that I was apparently subject to a surprise NIN performance with Dave Grohl on the drums in place of Ilan Rubin. This was a small amphitheater setting and they started playing Head Like a Hole. Trent midway through one of the verses traverses up the amphitheater steps and into the crowd, I get out my iPhone and he walks right past me and we high five, and I caught the video on my iPhone. Suddenly, Trent accidentally walked into the venues storage closet and the door locked on him, so someone had to open it up to get him out.

    I woke up. Dammit.

    It somehow happened, but with his albums. I dreamed that I went to a record store in Queens, New York, and it was sort of like FYE and Best Buy. When I went to the N section to check out Nine Inch Nails, I saw it filled with nothing but copies of Pretty Hate Machine all the way up to The Fragile. I kept looking through it over and over, and the shelves were very huge. However, I woke up as soon as I realized that I never went to that store, and then remembered how any stores that still sold CDs sometimess don't even have a NIN section, or even if they did, they wouldn't be stocked that well to start with.

    If I could lucid dream, I would've tried to buy the CDs and see how they'd work in my dreams. (Or just make them appear... but would still have the urge to still support NIN in the dream world.)

    Was at a soundcheck for the first show of some arena tour (all seated), with about 100 other people. TR has decided that backup dancers would be a good idea this time around. He is performing "Closer," and he comes out into the audience and makes his way up the aisle with the dancers trailing behind him, looking something like a Vegas casino or Tony Awards show act. He is smiling. He's also wearing a headset.

    At the end of the song, he flings himself onto the chair of some dude, semi-straddling him as he sings the last line into his face. He then stands up, grins and high-fives him.

    I was laughing like an asshole in my dream. Didn't seem like a nightmare.

    I had a dream last night that for some reason I was suddenly the new singer for NIN. Or you know how those dreams begin where you're just "in a situation" and you have to deal with it? It was like that. I was on-stage with NIN and was supposed to be singing the songs. It seemed like NIN circa 94 and even Trent was still in the band and they were playing someplace about the same size as a high school gym. I wasn't terribly prepared but managed to get through Gave Up and March of the Pigs and Big Man With A Gun and I felt really self-conscious about running around on the stage 'acting crazy'. I remember reaching up and hitting a button on an amplifier so my vocal would be screwed up like its supposed to be on Gave Up but I came in a little late. That was okay because TR was singing also - like he was my backup singer or something. Dual vocals idk.

    The rest of the dream was backstage in what looked like a picnic area and I was discussing with who I think was Danny Lohner about how backstage partying begins and he was giving me tips on how to ask for cocaine. Nobody else was there. Then there was a gigantic bag of cocaine and everybody was gone.

    I woke up and was all like what just happened and then realized my throat was incredibly sore. Still pretty confused about what this was all about (I don't do drugs at all or listen to NIN that often tbh) but I had a good time. Throats feeling better, by the way, thanks for asking.

    Singing Gave Up in your sleep would do that. “It took you *snrk* to make me *snrk* *mumble mumble*…”

    This is sort of stretching it as NIN-related dreams go, but last night I dreamed that someone addressed me by my real name on ETS (no, it wasn’t “Hi Trent”) and I wondered how the hell that happened. Pretty sure my secret identity hasn’t been blown … yet.

    I had a funny lucid dream last night. It was very cool, I'll try keep it short.

    I dreamt I was in the city and it was flooded in some parts(only about ankle height). The water was dirty like you would imagine city water to be like. Because I was lucid I decided to walk on water which I've done a few times now and its always pretty fun. Anyway so I walk on the city water but it doesn't make me feel how it usually does, I think because the water wasn't deep so it wasn't as much of a thrill(and didn't make me feel as happy).

    After that I floated over to where I saw Trent Reznor who was the cenobite Pinhead from Hellraiser. So he looked/dressed exactly like Pinhead but with a faint face of Reznor. He was standing in the street singing the song Hurt by NIN. Which he sung in a passionate emotional(sad)way. Now if you know Pinhead and with the lyrics you'd find them strangely suited and kind of amusing(also with pinhead/nin). So I don't know how my mind placed them together but they did. Anyway I watched and floated around him in a crossed legged lotus style position. I thought about using the hooks like in the movie so I imagined a hook on a chain flying our to catch my cheek which it did but it also didn't at the same time. So it was weird and like imagining in the dream but it not quiet going solid in the dream.

    After that I thought I don't really want to be strung up and stuck basically so I left and next thing I was flying near the house I grew up in. I saw a black cockatoo sitting in a tree so I flew over to it and thought to fly into the bird to take control of it. Instead of flying into the bird though I flew through it and when I looked at it afterwards I had left a copy of my tattoo on it. I have the Tetragrammaton tattoo on my leg in real life and when I looked at the bird it was then missing some feathers where a tattoo now was. It was exactly the same as my tattoo.

    Then the bird flew over to Mr Reznor who was sitting down close by(not Pinhead but normal). And I looked back and watched for a little and the bird almost looked then like a baby lion(some type of large cat)but then I flew off. So yeah it was a weird and somewhat symbolic dream in an amusing way.

    I had a dream last night, that NIN was playing gig on Team Fortress 2 map pl_badwater. Right at the Red spawn they set up their rigs and everything, but only few people were there so Trent asked me what is going on and we figured people were waiting outside (like there were some doors to enter the map) and couldn't get in. So we called the police to bust the door open because we agreed there would be a riot otherwise.

    Had a dream the other night that felt so real I started crying when I woke up... It involved Mariqueen, so not really NIN, but almost.

    My partner and I have been on again-off again for almost 10 years now, so we've been in each others lives for a very long time.

    In my dream, I found out that for the past 10 years he had been married to someone and they had 3 kids together and he had been lying to me the whole time. I discovered his marriage because I found her instagram and saw pictures of them together with the kids... And so I confronted him about it and he completely denied everything, but she was suss and followed him to my house and then accused me of wrecking their marriage.

    It's funny because before I went to bed I had been looking at Mariqueens instagram and the wife in my dream resembled her heaps. Lol, such a weird dream to have...

    Not a NIN dream but I had a dream I worked in the factory where they made all the Frosty mix for Wendy's restaurants. Now when I hear Came Back Haunted I picture Stroblight Trent eating a Frosty with a Santa hat singing Came Back Frosted.

    Last night i had a strange nin - dream. The concert started with a very cool unknown intro, the lights were magnificent. But after a breakdown the lights went complety off and the band left the stage. Instead of continuing the concert, Trent started to talk about his childhood and youth in some kind of a reading, mostly about playing video games. The audience started to be on edge because they wanted to hear music. Some went outside, some yelled about playing closer. A man behind me feared that Trent canceld the whole "concert" now. At this moment trent stated that he played some unseen videos on tape now. Everyone stoped yelling, the man behind me said that he will play the everything video and every day is exactly the same or some deep cutes and unreleased songs now. But none of this happend. Instead he showed some unreleased video games commercials he did for sega in the past. Then i wake up.

    Some time before the Tension tour got under way, I had a dream that I was at a show, and Ilan had been replaced by Mr. T. He pitied all the fools in the pit.

    Ok. It's always a pleasant sleep when NIN is involved in my dreams.

    Somehow I was backstage at a rehearsal or something like that. Trent decided to take a break and the band was left with no singer. So, upon easy chairs, Robin and Ilan decided to do vocals upon which Ilan invited me to sit with him and asked me to join in vocal duties (I can't sing that well). Anyways, the dream turned to weird when the band ended up at a gym by some beach where they invited me to work out with them. No wonder Trent exited my dream early. It was kinda weird, but awesome.

    I dreamt last night that my deceased father had to drive from Atlanta to Tampa and Trent needed a ride and was going with him. They let me tag along. I sat in back seat and listened to them talk shop about guitars and pedals. Coolest dream ever.

    [[from my nin forum post]]

    Though I don't remember everything, I had one of the most awesome dreams ever!

    I dreamt that Marilyn Mason took me to go visit Trent's studio for an autograph!

    We had lots of fun on the way there too!

    What I found odd though was the location of Trent's studio. Not very Los Angeles looking if you'd asked me....It was hidden away in old, seemingly abandoneded "projects". Marilyn even gave me a tour and pointed out some memorable places. Dammit I wanted to follow him forever.

    Anywhoo, when we arrived, Trent and his wife didn't react with shock like I'd excepted. They were slightly annoyed, but not shocked. Trent did show some enthusiasm though...And he his and wife had sort of a glow for some reason....maybe it was the lights.....maybe it was because I'd been staring at Marilyn for so long--who held is composure incredibly well...

    Did I mention I had a white towel on my face!

    Yes! I put a towel on my face to hide my identity--out of being incredible embarrassed and shy.

    "Did you recieve my message?" Said Trent

    "Er, message?" I said

    "Yes, well, you're not supposed to be here." Said Q (Who looked pretty in her long-sleeved cropped top and leather pants, may I mention)

    I don't remember what else was said, but I do remember searching through my mind for this message Trent mentioned.

    I thought I had been struck by lightning when Trent told me that he already knew who I was, but I calmed down massively once I discovered the warm smile on the couple faces after unveiling myself. I blushed so much I began to think that my face might fall off. I started to question everything--my clothes--my--face--my skincolor--my face...

    But then I thought of Marilyn and how out of place he might feel and returned back to my senses.

    Trent must be quite a face reader because I remember not saying much. I do remember him and Marilyn turning away to spraypaint on some tall boards. They were autographs! For me!




    I must admit. After "meeting" Marilyn and Trent, I must admit, it was awesome!!!!

    Marilyn was very friendly, very witty and playful. I think he used some kind of magic a few times....

    Trent was very calm, kind, and his serious demeanor often conflicted with his teddy bear appearance. Felt like he was hiding a very hyper side for some reason.

    I wish Mariqueen would have had more going in my dream though, the air about her was very intriguing....

    Last night, I dreamt that I saw NIN in an arena in seats and that I needed to go for a piss and got lost and ended up on the stage pissing on Ilan's drum kit and then Pinion started and Trent ran out on stage and knocked me into the crowd.

    Last night I dreamt I helped Trent open a show.

    They opened with March Of The Pigs and he let me do all the vocals, and I finished the "EVERY LITTLE FUCKING PIG" part like he did here:

    Had a dream where I was at the Pemberton festival later this year and somehow had a media pass in the front for the NIN show. Trent came out in a tux and all the songs were arranged like cheesy Michael Buble songs and he sang them like he does.

    Just days ago I had a nightmare. A dream entirely about the upcoming Helsinki show and it was just the strangest.

    First, something went wrong during the intro, maybe a technical mishap or people not being into it at all, and Trent got super pissed off. He said something bitchy and retaliated by spontaneously playing an entire set of nothing but deep cuts. So deep nobody had ever heard any of it before. Half of attendance left in an instant. I got a hold of the printed out setlist and it had songs like "Before" and other random single words (though I swear there was THTF/HLAH/Hurt at the end). I was thinking "Wow, this was propably my only chance of ever seeing them live and it's bullshit like this." Somehow that lead to afterwards Trent and I having a huge argument over it at an unfamiliar apartment.

    How relieving was it to wake up realizing that it wasn't the actual thing.

    I had a dream once where Trent critiqued all of the music on my computer.
    He was not impressed. But he was tickled by how out place Tunak Tunak Tun was.
    He even wiggled a bit to the song. For some reason I was afraid that he'd find porn,
    but he actually deleted music he felt was garbage and recommended other musicians.

    I mean what could I do?
    By the way, Trent always wins staring contests. Always.
