    Saying "thank you" to Mr. Reznor

    Hello,

    1.I am new here.
    2.I have looked for a similiar thread, but haven`t found one.
    3.NIN`s music means a lot to me.
    4.Since this site is officially the biggest site in the Internet for NIN fans, I came here to ask for an advice:

    Could you - users, advice me on saying "thank you" to Trent?
    What I mean is having a way for him to actually now about it.

    His (and other members of NIN ) work means a lot to me; really lot.

    How can I say "thank you" and let him know it?

    With best wishes form Poland,

    Piotr

    He's here and has an account. I'm sure he lurks without logging in here from time to time as well.

    So thank him here. He may see it.

    I can picture him sneaking onto the internet at like 3 in the morning, his wife yelling at him to come to bed.

    "you know what happens when you start reading that stuff!"

    TR has always seemed like the closeted obsessive insomniac type.

    we love you @teitan

    Hello

    Thank you very much for such a quick and positive feedback.
    So Mr. Reznor is a visitor here from time to time.

    Good.

    Here goes my "thank you" to him:

    Dear Mr. Trent Reznor,

    First of all, I am grateful.
    I am grateful for all your music created and shared – with us, casual listeners and fans, throughout your lifetime.
    I am aware of many musicians that worked with you on it, like (in alphabetical order of names):
    Aaron North | Adrian Belew | Alessandro Cortini | Alex Carapetis | Atticus Ross | Charlie Clouser
    | Chris Vrenna | Danny Lohner | David Haymes |Eric Avery |Gary Talpas |Ilan Rubin |James Woolley |Jeff Ward |Jeordie White |Jerome Dillon |Josh Eustis |Josh Freese |Justin Meldal-Johnsen |
    Lee Mars |Lisa Fischer |Nick Rushe |Pino Palladino |Rich Fownes |Richard Patrick |Robin Finck |
    Ron Musarra |Sharlotte Gibson - and I am gratefull to all of them for their contribution in making Nine Inch Nails what it is as a musical, sensual experience. Thank you.

    Yet, I would like to thank especially you for it – all of it.
    All the sound, the lyrics and the soul of Nine Inch Nails.
    I am not sure, how do you perceive your work – in any ways, I respect it.
    It`s your – amazing, piece of art. Nine Inch Nails means a lot to me.


    Since I listen to it (it`s 8 years now, and I`m 26 in 2017), I feel that I belong to somewhere safe.
    I feel as I never was alone in this world – a feeling that I had for the most of my lifetime.


    So, it comes down to this:

    Thank you for this feeling, Mr. Reznor.
    Thank you for creating music.

    I wish you what you need, what you want and the best of health.

    All I ask – a simple thing really, is that you let me know, that you got the message.
    It would mean a lot to me to know, that you know.

    If only you could write “I know, Peter” – or something like that, that would sooth my heart.


    With best wishes from Poland, your fan

    Peter


    PS We would love to hear NIN Live in Poland again

    That's a very nice thank you note you wrote, @Peter PL .

    In my opinion, here are other ways to say thank you to an artist:

    Buy their music.
    Talk about them to your friends who don't know them.
    Follow them on social media and share their posts to help promote them.
    Go to the shows (if possible, if course) and buy their merchandise.
    Find fellow fans and interact with them (you've found us already so it's good).

    Also: try to find other fans from Poland, bring them all together and try to make noise about your liking of NIN. If you show that Poland fans really want to see NIN live, who knows? Sometimes wishes do come true.

    Best of luck!

    ps ETS: what's a "teitan"?

    Hello there!

    I have read your post carefully. Thank you for great advices

    As for contacting other Polish NIN fans-would you believe me that I didn`t thought about it?

    Mainly because I quite busy - honestly busy, not just sitting in front of something random and breathing.

    By the way:

    - I but their music from legal sources
    - I spread the word among the unaware
    - I go to the shows whenever possible, even close-abroad ones

    Extra: I would like to share with you my personal definition of NIN. As often, I do realise it may mean pure nothing to somebody, but it`s just my poin of view.

    So: NIN`s the physical form (I refer to sonic vibrations) to many kind of emotions.

    Best wishes,

    Piotr

    I miss the old NIN forums where Trent actually used to "talk" to us. Even if it was just a marketing tool, it worked on me because I bought 20 NIN albums. I made my contribution to his kids' college fund.

    I'm pretty sure TR knows we appreciate what he does when he see's us losing our collective shit trying to work out maths equations to album covers (and the effort some of us go to to attend live shows for the 10th time), but he might see this while lurking

    Hello. I appreciate your comment. I hope so. By the way, It`s a shame that NIN was in Poland only two times since NIN era begun.

    THE WAY THEY PERFORM IS SOMETHING BEYOND WORDS FOR ME, AND I WRITE!
