    Can't wait for a Still reissue remaster so I can make my own Fragile expanded. Also need Things Falling Apart reissued and remastered.

    Hillebrandt is listed on every Still song for programming. There's no way to differentiate the chronology from the album credits.

    There was a Direct TV interview from 2002. I thought it was in that interview where he mentioned recording it after the tour. I skimmed through it on YouTube, but didnít hear that part. Does that sound familiar to anyone else? I feel like it was longer when I saw it originally than what is on YouTube.

    It took me about twenty years of listening to the album version of "Sin" to figure out what the high-pitched squealing noise was on the introduction (just as the hi-hat pattern enters, it starts on the left side of the stereo image, then pans to the other side and back; crops up again several times throughout). Always thought maybe it was a violin sample, or something like that, but then TR casually dropped a truth-bomb in a recent interview that there was "sax on Pretty Hate Machine" and my brain — after a few moments of "WTF is he talking about, 'Purest Feeling' isn't on the album" — went "oh fuck, that noise is a saxophone played in the altissimo range with over-blowing". If you pitch shift it down a couple of tones this is easier to hear, but I'm pretty sure now that's exactly what it is.

    oh my fucking GOD

    He used the saxophone for every kind of weird sounds. Like in Eraser; all the sound effects were created by breathing into the mouthpiece of a sax. Trent even did this live when they performed TDS in full.

    I always pictured him making the Eraser sucking sounds with a straw, a mouthpiece of a sax makes more sense.

    We all thought it was a straw (check the old versions of the Eraser article on nin.wiki), but then Trent proved us all wrong with that live performance.

    The straw sound isn't the same as what he does with the sax. The bug noises are sax, the straw noises we still don't know. They play them pre-recorded live.

    As someone who used to play a brass instrument, I thought the sax on Eraser was common knowledge. Guess I was wrong.

    Holy shit.

    I always thought it was Kinda I Want To that had some sax buried in there somewhere.

    Fuck, i almost forgot about that One Hour Photo Score that never was!

    I'm curious if "the makeup hides the bruise" in "Branches/Bones" is a possible reference to "Hand Covers Bruise" in the score for "The Social Network".

    i feel like they almost have to at least come from the same line of thought, you know? It's sort of the same image. I definitely thought about that immediately.

    It's possible. It may also be Trent assuming the persona of someone abused. From the opposite perspective: "I left her on the bathroom floor".
    This is highly likely, especially given the discovery of the schizophrenic person's blog.

    Or it might simply be the broader idea of hiding yourself, wearing masks, make-up, etc.

    The official NIN Vimeo account remains a true goldmine. I wish they would upload some new stuff to that account.

    Together... 'The Day The World Went Away' (The Fragile, Still, Quiet) is the best song Trent has ever written.
