    NIN reference is in the 9th paragraph (in Antonoff's response to a question about the song New Years Day).

    It's weird that he says NIN has become boring when he considers NTAE to be the #3 EP of 2017...

    Followed this drummer on youtube a couple of days ago. He posted this teaser for some project he has in the works, and I noticed it features the ending drone from Hurt.

    I've never understood why people do stuff like this. The reason why the song is poignant is due to its half-sung intimacy, like a page from a journal or a confession of failure and acceptance of how broken the self can be. The character is burned out, lost, and virtually hopeless. There's light at the end of the tunnel, but they can't reach it.

    That cover is completely soulless, so removed from its original context that beyond the melody, it's utter nonsense. This is reminiscent of that Okja trailer where they bizarrely took 'Piggy' literally to be a song about a pig.

    Had never seen that Okja trailer.
    Wow.
    If we can just get THTF in a cat food commercial, I can kill myself and be done with it.

    I hope when Pitchfork gets around to Liner Notes: Nine Inch Nails' The Fragile (in 5 minutes), their vanilla narrator guy makes sure to mention how "in 1999, on the day the album was released, Pitchfork gave the album a mediocre 2.0 rating, but 17 years later after history proved what an amazing masterpiece the album was, decided it was time to jump on the Trent Reznor bandwagon and award it a rating of 8.7.."

    The Fragile 2.0: https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/5799-the-fragile/

    The Fragile 8.7: https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums...-deviations-1/

    Up next: Liner Notes: Pitchfork decides Things Falling Apart is really a 6.7

    Todd Alcott on Etsy is selling art prints of album/song titles he has re-imagined as vintage book cover designs.

    Here's NIN's Downward Spiral as a soft-cover novel. I particularly like his King Crimson series...

    Wow those are really cool. Hope he does more NIN. Lots to work with there. LITS, ruiner, TLBTB, HLAH, anything really. Love it. Reminds me of hitchcock movie posters/covers.

    If you mention Cash, may as well give a shout out to Richard fucking Cheese.

    When I was a child, my parents were very lax about what I would watch. Unlike in some of my friends’ households, The Simpsons, Beavis And Butt-Head, and South Park were all fair game, and my dad would show me R-rated movies as far back as I can remember. (I have an early memory of getting in trouble for calling a blender a “douchebag” after picking it up from my pre-K viewing of Revenge Of The Nerds.) In high school, I would often drive my grandma, who lived with my parents, around town, because she never learned to drive. As a “cool” teen, I would listen to the then-new technology of mix CDs in my car. That’s how it came to pass that I was driving one day with my grandma in the passenger seat when Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” came on the stereo. Instead of changing the track, or turning on the radio, or doing anything to stop this situation, I let the song play. Despite the opening lyrics about desecration and penetration, the first half of the song passed by smoothly. Right after the first utterance of “I want to fuck you like an animal,” my grandma turned to me and said, “Well, this is a lovely song.” I apologized, but still let the rest of the song play as my grandma continued to make disapproving sounds from the passenger seat. I still don’t know why I didn’t change the song, whether I was fearing the next song would be worse or out of some kind of teenage rebellion, but after that I made sure to have more grandma-friendly music at the ready for next time.
