    I took a screencap a while back of "Direct Effect", not sure if that's what you meant:

    I admit, I did not expect to see Mushroom by Can on there... but I can hear in the rawness of the drums he likes to hear.

    Anyone know what favorite authors or specific books that Reznor was influenced by?

    Chuck Palahniuk.

    The book The Lathe of Heaven had an indirect influence on Bleedthrough.

    I've met Chuck several times, to where he knows me by face when I see him. We always wind up talking about NIN when we meet. He listened to PHM and TDS incessantly during the creation of Fight Club, and told me The Fragile influenced some of the themes in Haunted, and With Teeth was a favorite when he was writing Rant..

    During his book tour for Rant, I asked him to personalize my copy by telling me why he liked NIN, to which he wrote "Okay..I like NIN..for the complete lack of sympathy!"

    I never asked him what exactly that meant, but it sounds cool as fuck..

    he lives around here, I've never bothered figuring it out because I don't know what I'd do in the presence of features that sharp.

    Man, it just occurred to me how eerie it must have been for TR when the ONE line, the only line that Johnny Cash changed for Hurt (“I wear this crown of thorns,”) actually names what Nine Inch Nails was at one point going to be called in the early days. I mean what are the odds of that?

    Every single time I listen to/watch the version of Sin from AATCHB (which was that first "aha" moment when I fell in love with NIN), I think to myself, fuck, what a perfect song this is. What a perfect performance. It really never gets old.

    What if TR proposed to MQ by leaving a USB stick in their bathroom with a jpg of a ring saved on it. Then later when she found out she was pregnant, she did the same thing but with a baby jpg.

    Broke the 10k barrier on last.fm with NIN today. I'm pretty sure there are at least two years missing, but wow, I really seem to like that band. Still.

    Congrats, welcome to the 5 figure club. On 17k myself.

    Working on getting my girlfriend into NIN. I got her to listen though my introductory playlist, and I'm slowly working through the discography now, interspersing trivia... super fun.

    I'm such a NIN nerd, I'm nearing 35k! Been proudly scrobbling since 2007! If that pandemic has had any positive effect on my life, is that I've listened to more music this year then I did in the past 10 years! I'm on pace to have the most scrobbles in 1 year since 2009 when the only time constraints and obligations I had was college, still living at my parent's. I'm such a stats nerd too... How time flies!

    Big milestone! I'm at 9,777 NIN scrobbles right now, so it's only a matter of time until I break the 10k barrier as well. Of all bands that I listen to it's the only constant, for 15 years now.

    Hehe, thanks! Well, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Mark Lanegan are 2nd and 3rd, but still a few thousand scrobbles off. There might be times, months, even years where I'm not in the NIN mood, but whenever something's happening in the NIN camp I get sucked right back in. This message board and many great people sure do help getting there. Pretty sure that if all the stuff from the RTIC vault would have counted I'd broken that barrier earlier. Anyways, just a little random fact and a neat reminder why I keep visiting this place on an almost daily basis.

    NTAE is so damn strong. I still remember the excitement I felt when I first heard it. I often struggle to think of recommendations to folks who haven’t heard NIN at all, and I might just throw NTAE at them and leave it at that.

    Also, “The Idea of You" is underrated. I forgot Grohl drummed on this one!

    Ghosts Together reminds me a LOT of Pretty Hate Machine. Are there some of the same synths being used?

    NTAE is my favorite EP from NIN, it's perfect, to me it's some of the heaviest/darkest music Trent has ever done and I will always utterly love it for that, it has this really claustrophobic feeling that gives me feelings of intense paranoia.

    Another moment I love in that song is how when the first time the chorus pops-up it does not get heavier until it plays for the second time where it goes on longer and gets heavier.

    Gave The Fragile a full listen for the first time in a little while. I feel lots of things right now, notably tense after the last few songs.

    The last minute of Ripe (With Decay) is definitely very tense.

    So has anyone ever asked Rob why he chose the Backstreet Boys as his main inspiration for the With Teeth art direction?

    I love that breakdown, but it totally needs to be longer. It just sounds like it wants to get noisier. I feel like post The Fragile this happens from time to time. There are moments when it almost feels like the track was edited (e.g. Head Down, In Two, etc.).

    More concerning, why were you looking that CD up?
