    The listening parties were fun. Before they played the album, there was a nin video montage. I might’ve teared up a little watching it. *fangirl*

    Watching the Wax Trax documentary. Trent shows up a couple times.

    Luc Van Acker comes across pretty cunty especially on the bonus disc.

    One thing is for sure—we all get old.

    One of my favorite parts of NIN; the small melodies that take forever to finally hear.

    I wonder if he ever thought of using two drummers live, it could really thicken up the sound. The drums, especially on those early records are so hard-hitting I never felt like just one could convey that.

    Isn't that what ended up being that awesome [COLLECTED] promo DVD?

    I don't know; Ilan Rubin and Josh Freese are monsters behind the kit. Is more than one even necessary?

    For the record, NIN did use two drummers on a few songs during 1995 Dissonance tour (Charlie used second smaller drum kit along with Vrenna). Also Alessandro played some percussion alongside Ilan circa 2013/14 (maybe on recent tours as well but I haven't seen any 17/18 videos yet so I can't tell).
    I don't think two drummers are really needed, there's a lot of pre-recorded percussion that's always played from tape because Trent likes it that way, not because the band can't pull it off.

    The "Head Like a Hole" music video called! I love the two-drummer idea in theory, but NIN makes it work with four to five people onstage (as much as I did enjoy the expanded Tension lineup).

    Ale played percussion back as far as 2005 too (see "List of Demands") and picked up a tambourine in the 2018 versions of "Only". I think for Charlie's kit in 1995 and the arrangement of "Starfuckers, Inc." in 1999/2000 they put all the additional percussion on a MIDI-triggered hardware sampler, but most of the time these days it's all sequenced from a software sampler on Atticus' rig. Ilan still hits MIDI triggers too, for songs like "The Wretched" with non-acoustic noises that form part of the main groove.

    I think Ally played percussion on Find My Way on the Hesitation Marks cycle iirc

    That was Josh E. and only in 2013.

    I went to the listening party in Philly. it was a bit weird, but I had a good time. Of course, there were 2 guys who 'pre-gamed' and were drunk AF and jumping around in a tiny club.

    I always been curious as to why The Perfect Drug Versions is almost entirely comprised of only two lines from the song: "You are the perfect drug" and "take me with you".

    Part of me says that Trent only sent partial vocal stems to increase creativity with the music. Another part wonders if it's just some bizarre coincidence.

    I'm STILL coming down from the hype of seeing NIN live for the first (and hopefully not only) time on Corona Capital.

    And I'm really fond of a certain moment in the concert. We were in Starfuckers, and the You're So Vain part came in, and people in Mexico have a certain... Affinity of screaming things and speeding up while they do it... So people went:
    "Don't you... don't you... don't you, don't you, don't you don't you DONTYOU DONTYOU DONTYOUSDONTYOU"

    There was a brief moment of silence from Trent, and he went "The Fuck?... YouuuuuAAARGH!" And the song continued as normal.

    I had known up until that point that Trent gor annoyed beyond human belief when people messed up the bridge, even making the "you fucked up the whole middle section" audio happen.

    Having Trent go "The Fuck?!" on our concert was completely memorable, and my close friends all reference it when one says "The fuck?" they always complete it with a "youuuu"

    ( 3:38, to hear the complete clusterfuck this was.)

    Every time Trent Reznor's birthday approaches, Trent Turns 35, Trent Turns 37 and Trent Turns 38 still play in my mind without fail.

    I don't think Trent was annoyed at all, i think he appreciated the messy chorus and went with it...

    He did a similar thing the during the "WITH_TEETH Tour" in Mexico when he played "Starfuckers.Inc", basically interrupting the song to thank the people...

    Ringfinger would have been great to bring back for the 2013 Hesitation Marks tours. It would have worked very well alongside the new material.

    Sucks that it was last played in 1991.

    LOL, thanks for posting that. Brings back good memories to see Dresden Dolls playing "War Pigs" there at the start of the show!

    It was a great show, one of the greatest nights of my life, that's for sure!
    The Dresden Dolls actually signed my CD that day, good times!
