    Thank you @sheepdean for the tip-off! I was debating whether nor not to open mine, and your post has helped me to decide.

    Oh, that's actually an excellent point even for those of us who HAVE opened it up. I've just got mine sealed away in another bag at the moment and apart from taking them out again to get photographed soon, didn't have any other plans for them. Guess I may go the route of cleaning off all the black stuff after all!

    i know, boo, i was just giving you a hard time. i'm really sorry that it ruined the experience for you because it's really a cool and unique accompaniment to the music. maybe when a bit of time has passed, you'll be able to look at them with enjoyment...euphoria, even?

    I honestly don't get keeping it sealed. The contents inside are meant to be seen and experienced. If you're going to try to preserve anything, at least take the contents out and get them framed so you can enjoy them. I like the sticker and the envelope, but it's definitely not as cool as the contents inside it.

    I haven't opened mine yet, but only because I haven't yet had the time to deal with the mess I heard some people have tried using spray "fixer" to preserve some of the black powder. That doesn't sound like a great idea to me.

    Also: it's getting hard to know which side is the dream

    The first and third bolded sections are included in the lyrics of the nin.com mp3 version of the song, but the second is only on the lyrics sheet in the physical component.
    Thanks, added.

    I haven't opened mine, mostly because I'm not sure I want to deal with the mess it's going to make. I don't usually keep things sealed, but I don't want to make a mess all over my carpet either.

    I thought the same at first but it really wasn't nearly as bad as I feared it would. Yes my hands got pretty black, but I put some paper towels on my table before opening it and all the dirt that came off was only on the paper. Nothing got on the table/carpet/my legs.

    Just put on latex gloves and open it outside then. Easy.

    For some reason, I didn't think of the word dirt to describe the powder or dust, which in turn reminded me of the "My empire of dirt." lyric from Hurt. I know that this is more of a Random NIN Thoughts type of post, but you saying that got me thinking about that particular line. It also reminded me about "The ashes and debris." from Non-Entity and the "Peel off our skin, we're gonna burn what we were to the ground. Fuck in the fire and we'll spread all the ashes around." from Sunspots. (Along with any other song that refers to fire and burning.)

    This certainly makes it all the more interesting, as the dirt/dust/powder has been adding to all sorts of possible interpretations concerning Not The Actual Events. Trent Reznor has certainly done it again.

    Dude. Are those lyrics smudges on the right side from The Downward Spiral? If so- that's fucking cool as shit.

    @Destruct26 yes, the Reptile lyrics on the She's Gone Away sheets is actually an overlay of the lyric sheets from TDS, complete with remants of the artwork and all.

    I knew about the reptile lyrics- those are on the left; i was speaking of the smudged lyrics on the RIGHT which look like the lyrics of the song 'The downward spiral' you can make them out a little bit.

    I'm aware of that and it's what I was saying, sorry if I fumbled my words. It looks like a direct scan from that page of the booklet.

    I wish I had one of those crime lab computers that does pattern matching so I could find out what part of the TDS cover artwork the Dear World background is! I'm pretty sure it's part of the TDS cover/back cover (vs. a similar rehash). I've looked and looked at the zoomed in close ups from Robs re-photographing (available here), but I'm not able to definitively match the markers. Maybe someone else will spot it.

    Interesting thought. I had the understanding that "She's Gone Away" was the only track based on another.

    I wonder if there is just a back log...

    So, you mention "goo". That is what I got sort of. While many received dust, mine is cakey clumps that need to be scraped off. When opening the envelope, the cards needed to be pryed out. lots of cakey debris inside. Looks like craters in the envelope from fluid drops on the dust. At first I attributed it to being in hot, humid Florida, then I saw the fluid marks.

    I did order 2 sets, 1 within the first hour of availability, another in late January when it came back for sale. Both arrived the same day at 2 separate addresses.

    I might not be from the TDS artwork, it might just be photograph of gauze. Or perhaps gauze from a different Russell Mills artwork (I think some of the work from Cargo in the Blood might have incorporated gauze)
