    Sounds like BS.

    The shows were very well received and so was the music. Plus that sounds out of character for Trent.

    I don't believe that for a second. I do think htda is underrated but that's not really anyone's fault. It wasn't even for lack of promotion really because at least htda had a few videos (more than NIN by a longshot)

    Yeah, that's made up.

    Rob - maybe who knows
    Atticus - Trent was best man at his wedding
    Mariqueen - married Trent
    Ally - still in NIN


    Bull, and indeed, shite

    IF Trent said that (and that's one big massive IF), he could possibly be referring to people at Columbia Records. I doubt Trent would talk shit about Rob since their partnership apparently ended on good terms, and I highly doubt he would talk shit about two of his biggest musical collaborators, one of whom he's married to.

    I highly doubt it’s Rob - the artistic direction completely suited the music aesthetic, hardly responsible for any failure, plus if that was true he wouldn’t have been touring with NIN just afterwards (also he had no musical input surely?)

    Would y'all count that live performance of A Drowning the other night as NIN debuting it, or as HTDA performing it? The entire studio ensemble of HTDA was on stage after all, including Ally

    Personally, I'd call it NIN. It was NIN show, with the NIN lineup, the only different factor being Q coming in to sing. I understand the argument about the studio ensemble, but it's not like any of them (again, besides Q) were brought to the stage just for that show.

    Now, that said, if any of the artists were to contradict my take, then I'd obviously say that that settles it.

    It's NIN featuring Mariqueen. It's kind of like when Pearl Jam had Chris Cornell come on stage to perform "Hunger Strike" several years ago. Automatically, it became Temple of the Dog's studio group, but it was a Pearl Jam show, so Pearl Jam is credited with the performance. Same thing here.

    I put it as a C&B&I live debut on ninwiki, with [as Nine Inch Nails] in brackets, and added to the list of live songs tally, along with Welcome Oblivion.

    Pass. The NIN sub has become toxic. I pop in every now and then, but the things people say to each other on there. Jesus christ.

    Why, because people are not agreeing with you on the HTDA thing you keep insisting didn’t happen? Hate to break it to you but you’re part of the problem in that sub...

    I think Mariqueen with Massive Attack would be a most interesting collaboration. Of course, Trent is more than welcome to pitch in, too!

    Ok, so, regarding the NIN/HTDA argument: I've seen it here. I've seen it all over facebook. And it's going down on reddit.

    Wouldn't it sort of be a lot more cooler if we like, stopped arguing about it? That would be great, wouldn't it?

    It's kind of like a riddle for Zen meditation. It's KIND of like the Ship of Theseus paradox, too, innit? It's a fucking METAPHYSICAL question.

    Anyway, why are people getting so worked up over this? Like, does it matter?

    Where did you see it here? I've been avoiding those other sites like the plague. I know a couple of people in the tour review threads here were bummed out at the Palladium shows because they hate Mariqueen or w/e (IT SHOULDA HAVE BEEN MEEE)...

    Do you mean whether NIN played covers of HTDA with Mariqueen, or HTDA reunited in the middle of a NIN concert? Is that seriously what people are arguing about so intensely over there? No, that doesn't matter (but it's the first one :P).

    You just reminded me of the two girls I stood next to in FL during the Wave Goodbye shows...*ugh*...both had on shirts that said something to the effect of "WHY TRENT!? HOW COULD YOU HAVE DONE THIS TO ME!!!??" and the whole time the both bitched about how he had recently married and how pissed they were about it. Sometimes I hate being a NIN fan...

    Maybe a year ago I stumbled across some fanfic on Tumblr (I basically just follow all NIN-related tags), and read it out of morbid curiosity. The author definitely wrote a story where Mariqueen died and Trent was back on the market. Of course, the author was the new love interest in the story.

    I definitely had a "kill it with fire" moment with the internet that day.

    yes, the "did nin play covers of htda or did htda reunite. " I've seen people get REALLY worked up over it.

    It should have been you, @botley , because you could do better than that? Because you would avoid wearing a bipperty boppity hat?

    Edit: to be fair, WE kept it civil HERE, at least. I was talking about the online NIN fandom in general.

    Man, the 90's were a gold mine for fancringe. I wish I had some of my internet adventures saved from that time period, I'm sure I would die of embarrassment but also get a good laugh.

    I think a lot of girls go through this when they are young, I certainly did. Obsessing and dreaming over the looks and talent of a celebrity that they will never meet, who sings them (and everyone else) love songs from afar is a safe way for young girls to start working through their sexuality and desire for romance. Most of us grow out of it once we start having real relationships with people we actually know.

    But some don't, and it's kind of frightening. I remember some of the internet chatter when Trent and Mariqueen got engaged. Some of the comments from full-grown women were scary. It's a bummer that the Reznors pulled back from social media a lot after that, but I can't blame them.

    Anyway, sorry for the thread drift.

    That has Carol Reznor written all over it...
