    Listening to Depeche Mode's "Construction Time Again," I'm reminded of the themes revisited in NIN's "Year Zero."

    I was watching Al Jourgensen on Dave Navarro's podcast from 2018 and they were talking about Al getting into a fight with Henry Rollins at Lollapalooza in 1991 when he went to visit TR. Apparently Henry Rollins and NIN were sharing a tour bus, Al came on looking for TR and Henry yelled something like "AHH NOO, no junkies on the bus!"

    Anyhow, I never knew that they shared a bus but now it makes more sense now how TR had that quote about everyone being super cool on that tour, with the exception of Henry Rollins.

    Embarrassing confession time: 15 years after it was first released, I seem to finally be able to "hear" the beat properly during the first verse of Survivalism. The very first time I heard that track, my brain latched onto those offbeat drums and heard them as if they were the downbeats instead. For awhile I'd thought that the first chorus intentionally starts by chopping off a bit of the previous bar -- not unheard-of in NIN-land. Not sure when exactly I realized I'd just been hearing it wrong, but it's been an awfully pesky meme to dislodge from my brain. I've had to very consciously ignore the vocals while listening, but I think I'm finally to the point where I've reset my reflexes on that one. Listening through the recordings of these 2022 shows has been the first time where it's felt at all second-nature. I still sort of feel like I've gotta concentrate a bit not to slip back into the old "habit," but it's a bit of a relief.

    Now to wait for the Lifetime Movie folks to call...

    Don't be embarrassed...as I don't fully understand what's off about it. It doesn't sound weird to me. And not because I get it. I think it's more I just don't understand music theory beyond I like what I like.

    Oh for sure! That's because there's nothing weird about it at all -- the weirdness was entirely concentrated in my collection of neurons devoted to the song. Had to get those bastards in line is all.
