    Introducing a NIN fan to the Broken Movie makes me feel like a drug dealer, they'll like it but you know it's going to fuck them up

    some old interview from 92 used to be on youtube, where Ogre said nice things about the 'happiness in slavery' video....Bill Leeb (who Trent destroyed back in the day) posts NIN vids on fb quite frequently and always says nice things about his music. I think he's even posted HTDA videos....the hostility comes from old school "industrial" fans, those 45 year old rivetheads who still jack off to their nitzer ebb records, who despise NIN with a passion because technically NIN isnt a sacred "industrial" band like a Front 242 or FLA etc...I dont think the other "industrial" musicians have an issue with TR at all (except cev key who hates everyone and apparently is the biggest dick in the business...his own friends have told me that)

    and yes for the record, Corgan and Cobains hatred of Vedder was based purely on jealousy.

    Shouldn't be fans of TG, SPK, Test Dept., early Neubauten etc. mad at those?...

Seeing how this thing evolves is going to be way more interesting than waiting for DVDs of past stuff, etc.

His popularity has nothing to do with him selling out or not being true to his art. His popularity just came from him being consistently great. Most of these Skinny Puppy people, including the musicians, are embittered by Trent's success. Indeed, a lot of industrial musicians are. Problem is their music appeals to a very small base; whereas Trent's music appeals to a wide audience. Trent has been nothing but an artist and only gained his status because his tastes tend to appeal to a broader crowd.
    You sound just like ths guy Gandu that we had here a while back

    My appreciation of "Right Where It Belongs" has only grown over time. At this point I would say it's in my top 10 favorite NIN songs. It's so beautiful.

    You know, a lot have people have said that releasing And All That Could Have Been on bluray would be a waste, but I don't think it would. While obviously AATCHB will never look better, it being on bluray would fix a problem that has always annoyed me: it being on two discs. That part where it splits really kills the mood. Plus, they could always throw in some bonus stuff to fill space, like footage from the Fragility special that was on mtv.

    Visually it's kind of pointless, but the audio would sound amazing, and they could definitely throw some bonus footage on there.

He just hid it well
    Who isn't into strippers? lol

    Yeah. I mean, even Metallica's Some Kind of Monster was released on Blu-ray and up-scaled to hell.

    In other news, I was fooling around with the multitracks of Adam Freeland's "Morning Sun" and noticed an interesting sample at 0:58:



    I'm sure it's from the guitar-synth-whatever breakdown at the end of My Violent Heart. Oh, and the track features additional guitars by Jeordie.

    There's something relaxing and reassuring about listening to Terrible Lie whenever I'm inundated with confusion and frustration regarding the toxicity of lies, corruption and hypocrisy on all large and small scales. It just calms me down in a very unexpected way that it hasn't before these days.

    Funny, I was playing 'Terrible Lie' in the car today. Very cathartic. Love every minute of that song.

    The instrumental version of Where Is Everybody? sped up 35% sounds kind of awesome.

    Wow the online media is really covering this 'Trent is working on Fight Club Musical' thing. It seems there's several articles about it in the last few hours.

    With the solidifying business relationship between Fincher and Reznor, I'm wondering if additional discussions took place to maybe revive the Year Zero mini-series project.
    There are other networks besides HBO.
    You could pitch it to Netflix for example. They've been putting out amazing series lately.
    If Lynch can bring back Twin Peaks, I don't see why Year Zero couldn't be a reality.
    They should write and shoot a pilot. Who knows what will happen after that. I'm sure they could actually use a crowdfunding website to finance the pilot. Fincher and Trent have enough fans out there to make it happen.

    I apologize in advance for bringing this old subject back on the table (aka Tapeworm Part 2).
    The whole concept was so fascinating. It would make for great TV as long as the appropriate people are involved.
    Anyhow ..

    Dan Knauf, the creator/writer of HBO's "Carnivale" was also working on the show with Trent.
    I'm friends with Mr. Knauf on Facebook, but he's not allowed to comment on anything that he worked on due to legal crap.
    "Carnivale" is one of my favorite shows of all time, so to have him a part of "Year Zero" would have been amazing.
    He's been great to us fans about letting us know what was going to happen on "Carnivale" before it got canceled with only 2 out of the planned 6 seasons shown.
    Marvel wanted to team up to continue the series as a graphic novel, but the cunts at HBO said "No" and would not give Mr. Knauf any of his rights back to finish it.
    So I wouldn't be surprise if HBO has some legal shit keeping "Year Zero" from us.

    I was wondering why the end of that show was so bloody awful.

    Yeah, there was still like 15 years that had to be covered until the first bomb was dropped.
    Left on such a cliffhanger, but according to Knauf we did see a bit of the ending with what was shown.
    Neither main character was dead.
    Hawkins would take on a Management type roll while Brother Justin survived with the broken anointed blade still lodged close to his heart leaving him in a weakened state.
    Jonesy survives the gunshot and returns to professional baseball, married to Libby.
    Time would have passed, the carnival disbanded.
    Knauf pretty much explained what the ending would be, but he said it's the journey to that point that is more important.
    He said he felt it was like a trilogy of books with each 2 seasons being 1 book.
    So the end of Season 2 was the end of Book 1 and Season would introduce us to new characters.

    What is your favorite, and your least favorite, interview with Trent (text, audio or video)?

    It's stuff like this that has rendered so many NIN defectors, most notably Howard Stern. Yoko Ono (pictured here in a Louis Vuitton wetsuit, no less) sure does a fine job of destroying Trent's dark and edgy persona, doesn't she?

    ^^^i don't think the persona has been dark and edgy since the Downward Spiral personally. I love The Fragile but the persona was insecure, depressed and a bit sad rather than dark and edgy

    And today you've chosen to be racist and probably a bit sexist. Tomorrow I'm guessing you're going to go for some broad eugenics ideas.
    But seriously, you think Trent was dark and edgy? He literally has a song on TDS where he calls out his high school girlfriend by name ffs.

    Calling Mariqueen "Yoko Ono" is such a cheap and childish insult. Yeah, like John Lennon was the only fucking musician to collaborate with his wife.

    Really? What song is that?

    'Insecure, depressed and a bit sad' is now 'Kissing with my girly on the beach in the warm California sunshine!'

    So Trent is not allowed to be an actual human being who can experience the entire spectrum of human emotion?

    You do know that depression isn't something that is cured by a cuddle right? Like, it's a medical condition?
