    I'm doing all three days of Riot. I'd be surprised if Trent didn't do something. It's a major city where artists often do something special, Trent ha ps a fondness for the Ohio days, the gear and crew is all there, etc.
    I will be monitoring 24/7 for a club show to be announced and will pay a scalper if needed. I'm excited by Queens, but I can always catch them on tour or travel elsewhere to catch them within a car ride. But seeing a club NIN show is is rarity

    Ilan is a god and I can't believe he's just 29. He is extremely talented in his solo stuff, too. It's not my cup of tea, but I certainly appreciate it.

    Given the amount of TR thirsting that's going on lately, I think I'm just going to give him an eye-fucking from the barrier on the next tour and start screeching the lyrics to "I've Written A Letter to Daddy" at him.

    I'd put money on them doing a show before Friday, or after Sunday. Competing with Riot Fest proper would be bad form.

    It's too bad they haven't played anything this year (yet) where he busts out the 'cello...

    I think it needs to come back revamped a la Sanctified. And I don't mean 'grooved up'.

    There's nothing wrong with it - though someone more jaded than I could say it sounds dated - and it's one of my favorites, but it's never really been fucked about with in a meaningful way throughout the years -. I feel like it's a good candidate for deconstruction and experimentation. IMO current NIN could shake it up and make it sound 'dangerous' again.

    Was HMIAIH the only track he played cello on?

Just seemed like TR was going through the motions. Even post WT there have been very good tours but the edge that used to be there during TDS and Fragility era was gone...Something about 2017 NIN where the danger and anger seems to have returned. Even in songs like 'Wish' and 'MOTP' which have been played to death to the point he can sing them in his sleep had an added intensity this week....Fuck, TR even brought back his old 1990s goth look back....Exciting time to be in the NIN camp. NIN hasnt felt this fresh and dangerous in a long fucking time...
    Personally I wonder whether it's because the 'tour' is so short, there's an extra energy and no feeling of 'we've gotta do this for another year' looming in the back of his mind, so he's cherishing the few hours he has on stage this year - you would really wouldn't you?

    I'm now having vivid dreams of them playing Not Anymore. They've gotta do it.

    I can just hear Robin screaming "And I can't seem to wake up!"

    I'd expect Robin to scream "well not anymore!" while Trent doing the "and I can't seem to wake up!" part.

I mean, it wasn't a single, and I can't see how it stands out in any other way... why stick with it all these years? If I ever met Trent for a chat that would be one thing I'd have to ask. Maybe he just really likes it? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, but its persistence in the setlist confuses me.
    It's a pretty big/important song to long-time NIN diehards. It's not even my favorite off of PHM, but it was literally the soundtrack to my discovery of atheism. I didn't know it was an option at the time.

    And I have no clue where or when the interview was from, pretty sure pre-WT era, but I distinctly remember Trent being asked that and responding that the song always got him pumped up, no matter how tired/hungover/whatever/he was. Obviously I'm paraphrasing, but that was the gist.

    It sucks that the projector system got discarded after the Bakersfield performance. It had it's moments.

    Loving the Webster Hall tape. The raw energy of a club performance, the screamers/talkers (BANE of all tapers), Tront getting a case of mumble-itis during the bridge of Survivalisim and his comments after the song.

    Good stuff, real hyped for Riotfest now.

    when the projectors got real close to trent's face I thought he was going to turn and punch them both.

    in some article that I can't seem to find, he mentions that the chord progression isn't C->D as commonly thought, it's FUCK -> YOU

    Might have been from Ben's audition but TR made the comment originally... part of the reason Aaron North got the nod was his (dis-)tasteful musical Fuck Placement

    found it

    "I'd see guys show up and they could play all the guitar parts and it's not like it's technically that difficult. But the test is always Terrible Lie [from Pretty Hate Machine]. It's two chords: C, D," he says, playing a sturdy air guitar.



    "And you'd see these guys and they'd be playing C, D," he says, blankly. "And I'd stop them and say, 'It's not, C, D. It's, '[expletive], you'," he mutters, this time with a more violent air guitar.

    I would be very very very very very surprised if that happened. I would bet against it and I'm not a gambling person.

    You are probably right, but a boy can dream. I was listening to Night of Nothing the other day, where they share the stage with Prick. Made me realize TR has some amazing duets. I got to catch the Bauhaus leg of the with teeth tour where he did like three songs with peter Murphy. When I saw the riot fest lineup I thought it was kinda magical that ministry and nin shared a bill in the town where it all started. Given Al's shitty attitude, even on his nicest days, makes it unlikely. Still in my mind, it makes it kinda special. The loop closes.

    Not a chance. The most that will probably happen is Trent taking a second to say "Great to share the stage with the guys in Ministry again." or something along those lines.

    Yeah, NIN shared a festival with various friendly bands (including Ministry) countless times. Nothing ever happens. (Well, maybe except that Dillinger Escape Plan thing in 2009).

    Not to mention, this was actually asked yesterday and Trent said there'd be no special guests or "let's play together" with Al or anyone at Riot.
    Anyone know if there's going to be an official (or wonderful person with a big data plan) streaming tonight?
