    Hi! I'm Thorn from Vancouver, BC. I'm 21 years old, but I've been listening to Nine Inch Nails since I was a small kid thanks to my dad. Been lurking ETS for 6 years now and decided to finally make an account. I love NIN but I'm mostly obsessed with punk. I'm a drummer/vocalist in a punk band and I'm active in my local punk scene. I love foruming and I haven't been on a forum in a few years so I'm stoked to be apart of this one.

    Holy crap. Get pre-occupied for a decade while the economy fakes its own death only to be saved by politicians, have a few kids and look back, and ETS is still a thing. I used to be kitcostantino on the old site. i remember a few people like Terryana and Levithant and clive holloway. Its been a digital lifetime. Just stopped in to see if my login still worked. much to my surprise, i didnt exist here. I shifted my collecting to kids for a while. more recently, i learned about X Metals at oakley forums, but i still have a bit of NIN stuff. is it all worthless now? i mean, hell, there are 2 further down the spiral tins on ebay atm for $100/ each. id say 'what happened?' but i know. i was a pizza guy for almost a decade. i went from clearing $600/week working 4 days to working 5 or 6 days to make half of that. after 3 years of waiting for the economy to rebound, i gave up and became an EMT. I have since moved out of EMS, but it was a critical juncture in my life. Then began the poorest time I have ever had, but everyone in EMS is broke or works multiple jobs, so that makes it easier. lol. Mind you, i quit buying/trading/selling rare music merch. i never sold off all of my stuff, but i cant find a substantial box of it. (the rarer stuff, DII 6 tk, PHM Austrian press, etc). i replaced collecting NIN/TOOL with android and more recently, Oakleys without realizing i loved the time i spent meeting people, trading, hunting IRL, and selling off extras with the people i met on ETS in 2005-2007. now, i can actually stop back in. hello, friend.

    I might as well re-introduce myself. This is the same old Triple_A from the old ETS who translated the Colombian woman's interview for the YZ ARG. I joined the original ETS about 2005 and re-upped after it crashed in 2011.

    Just thinking about how crazy that Spring of 2007 was with the ARG. The discoveries, laughs... the community. I miss it. Thus, I'm back and hope to post more regularly.

    I saw NIN at Riot Fest. It was hot, sweaty, fucking fun, and I saw my petite wife bulldoze some dude in the pit. Good times.

    Hi. Also a long time lurker. I picked sticksandhair because, you know?... of course you do. I signed on to go talk about this ticket pre-sale and thought I should say hello first.

    Well by golly, here I am. Not that it matters, unless of course it does.


    Many years ago music was a central part of my life. Saw hundreds of concerts, amassed a few hundred pounds of vinyl, and had an awesome sound system! Also played in a band which really sucked, but it was fun, and was the right thing to do at the time. Music helped me through some rough spots growing up, and through young adulthood.


    Then I crawled under a rock to live for a few decades, with no time to really appreciate music … it was just noise on the radio to ward off complete silence.


    About two years ago I began to reboot my serious interest in music. Perhaps because my kids were growed up and I had more time. I was channel surfing on cable one night, and stumbled upon NIN playing Austin City Limits. Heard “While I’m Still Here” and I was hooked. Simply amazing song which I can relate to deeply.


    One thing led to another, as they usually do. Purchased a bunch of NIN music, including every live video I could find (my preferred format these days). And I like it all by golly!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm completely new to this thread as I only found out about it a few days ago. I'm Kaydraven from Chicago. A big NIN fan since my brother introduced me to them when I was about 13 or so. I'm a freelance music writer, so I do album reviews, interview, news stories etc for places like Genre is Dead, AXS, Chicago Music etc.

    I'm a huge fan of music in general, so my tastes are all over the place. Other bands I really love are The Cure, Creeper, Marilyn Manson, Nirvana, and Green Day. I'm super stoked on the upcoming NIN tour - especially since it's my first - and I wanted to chat about it with other fans. And if I had to pick a fave NIN release I'd say it's between the Broken EP, TDWS, and PHM.

    I just joined today. I think I broke my foot and I can't walk right now so I'm stuck at home with my laptop.

    I do have plenty of studying to do, but sometimes you just have to give your brain a break.

    Thank you for providing this forum for us!

    Today is my first day on EtS. So "hi" and all that!

    I was a pretty devoted fan as a teenager and college student, but I sort of stopped following NIN around the time Year Zero was released (YZ was great, but I was going through my Indie/Folk phase so that's all I listened to for years). About a year ago I decided to dial back in and see what Reznor had been up to musically, and I was pretty excited to hear the direction the music had gone since I fell off. I've been playing the best game of catch-up ever over the last 12 months. This place gets mentioned a lot on the NIN subreddit, so I figured I should come check it out.

    I'm really excited to see the show in Memphis this year. The last time I saw NIN live was during With Teeth, which I'm kind of shocked to do the math and realize that was eleven years ago.

    Hey all. I've been a member for the longest time but never really contributed much (despite the odd excited post after getting to a gig or a new album launching) but I've decided it'd be nice to get to know some more NIN fans. Used to post on The Spiral lots back in the day and that was fun so let's do this!

    I'm in the West Midlands in the UK, comic artist (most recently published in 2000AD) and I've been fortunate enough to see Trent and co nine times as of last weekend. *waves hello*

    I didn't know this thread existed but I'm Kyle and have been here for a long time, though I did take an extended break from about 2011-2017. Before the old ETS crashed, I went by superklye and was a regular (and probably annoying) poster.

    I'm from lame ass Indiana. Boring here and depressing. Need to move asap. Been a fan of nails since '90. So, ya. Old. Um, anyhow. I don't know if I will get to see them this year (money) but hopefully. I have seen most other tours. I guess "Hi!" everyone.

    Hey. Been a fan for as long as I've been able to listen to music. I'll probably post sometimes.

    Formerly known on this forum as "Tommy_Macbeth". Just graduated from high school in Illinois. NIN has been my favorite band for about 5 years now. Also love Type O Negative, Linkin Park, Death Grips, and many other bands/albums.

    Hello, children:

    Momma's back to start some chaos. I heard things have been quite boring around here, since I left the NIN community 10 years ago. Now I am returning with avengence. Get your teddy bears and bottle of Xanax ready, because we are about to have some fun!

    Who is a "Cash pile?" I've never been called that, but I like the ring to it. It gives the impression that my padussy makes tons of money on the streets. Thank you for the new business name. I might incorporate it tomorrow. Get that LLC.

    Hello everyone. I realized lately I have been off and on here for some time but I never formally introduced myself so here it goes... This is A Virtual Memory, I make art and music, some of which you may find interesting. NIN has been a pivotal point of inspiration to me for most of my life and attempt to draw as much as I can from it in in my own work. Anyway, it's very nice to be here and to meet all of you, at long last. I will post some links to what I do over in the "Artistic Expression" forum.

    Best,

    AVM

    Hi,
    New to ETS. Late to the party, is how it feels really.
    Been a fan of NIN for about 6 years, having discovered it through my boyfriend (now husband) in high school.
    Went to my first concert for NIN on this cold and black and infinite tour, and I think I've gone from fan of NIN to obsessed, trying to follow all the rest of the show news and band interviews.
    Hopefully I'll return to a normal state of mind soon, but hoping to stick around here. ETS seems like a really cool place.
