    I wonder if HBO passed on it because they thought it might get them in hot water? Granted, HBO will give you sex and violence all day long, but they are very careful with the social commentary. True Blood at least has some real-world applications to politics, but it's usually pretty darn banal (though I haven't seen the latest season yet, so who knows.)

    This is a random ETS thought, but:

    I just donated today, and now I'm worried that I'm going to be accidentally facepalming people for the next month or so.

    No, I like it too, it's got a great atmosphere and the drum machine's sound is adorable.

    It's just occurred to me that Donnie Darko's time portal is a bit like The Presence. Is The Warning actually about Jake Gyllenhaal?

    Came back haunted is like the first drag off of the cigarette where you feel so much better. Copy Of A is like finishing that cigarette up, not a bad drag yet. Everything is like pulling too hard and beginning to burn your finger.


    I feel like this will change in 2 weeks.

    Someone posted this on the NIN subreddit. I thought it was pretty interesting to see how similar yet different they are. He's even holding the mic exactly the same in both pics.

    I wonder how TR would handle writing an album that wasn't a concept album, but also wasn't at all about himself.
    We have YZ, and then the rest of his albums, sans ghosts, are pretty much entirely introspective creations.
    It'd be interesting to see TR write songs about things he sees as compelling or polarizing in one way or the other.

    Like, Car Crashes, The tradition of opening windows when people pass away, etc.

    Over the weekend I picked up Further Down the Spiral, March of the Pigs (single) and And All That Could Have Been (CD) for $2 total at a local record store. I have owned all of these at one time but no longer did......so it kind of made my day.

    Obvious musical reasons aside, this is pretty much why Trent is sitting fairly comfortably at the top of my list of artists to look up to. To see someone go from being so completely drugged out of their mind that they couldn't sing their own words to...well...this? An Oscar/Grammy winning composer who's pushing 50, in (it appears) amazing physical shape, and still going strong with a career that's spanned over two decades? Damn, that's inspiring (and why there's a lot of NIN on my running/gym playlists).

    Random NIN Thoughts

    Those first two NIN shows changed my fucking life!!!

    I've seen countless shows over the years but nothing, not one damn single thing can compare to the two shows I've seen so far this week. Regardless of how many streams or tapings I've watched, my mind and body was not prepared for those shows. Those shows exceeded every expectation and dream imaginable. God-damn-fucking-WOW!

    I just wish it was possible for me to see NIN sooner than this, and goodness knows I tried., But hey, those were my breaks and I guess it made getting to Scala all the more sweeter.

    Yeah, 25 into 26 had some of the best and worst moments of my life so far. Here's hoping it's at least a little bit of smooth sailings for the most part. Thanks though friend!

    In 2009, a lot of terrible shit happened. Trent put NIN on hold/end/hiatus (I knew he'd be back someday, but it still bummed me out), I lost one parent to a disease they battled with for years, and the other had a stroke and was almost paralyzed, resulting in my becoming a caretaker for almost every spare moment of my life. Without baring too much of my soul on a public forum to a bunch of relative strangers (I've been posting sporadically since the AATCHB days, but I've never really been a board regular), I've felt pretty numb for a lot of these past few years, and it's taken me a long time to recuperate.

    It's a very strange thing, going through awful times and not having new NIN to relate to emotionally on some level like I've always been used to. It was probably a good thing though, some parts of the catalogue I couldn't bear to replay for fear of a total breakdown.

    Anyhow, here I am, four years down the line. Long story short, things are better. I've grieved. My remaining parent has recuperated enough to have a degree of self-autonomy sufficient enough that we've been able to move apart (though I still help with whatever is needed a few times a week). I'm in a new relationship with a wonderful lady. That hasn't happened in years.

    To have Trent come out now, resurrect NIN, and most importantly, to put out an album that reflects on the dark times in his life, all he's been through, an album that can get downright happy at times...fuck, the parallels boggle my mind. It's the perfect time for what is shaping up to be - at least for me - the perfect NIN album for right now, when I too am feeling better than I have in years.

    That said, I braved Still for the first time in half a decade, yesterday. Holy shit do AATCHB and Leaving Hope still hit hard. But I'm glad I was able to do it.

    By the time TR retires (let's say/hope not before 2030) his two sons will be old enough to follow in their daddy's footsteps. They even look like him (at least from the back) and if Trent can get them into music they're gonna kick so much ass. Having TR as your dad is probably the coolest thing ever, I hope they're no going to grow up liking dubstep and thinking their dad is lame...

    I know this random thought is about Trent's private life/kids, and we should be careful with what we say, but this has just crossed my mind.

    What would the Trent of the TDS era think of "Everything"?

    No way to tell... On one hand I remember him saying - back then - that fun-loving surf pop-rock songs weren't his stuff (as in, mood-like, I'm heavily paraphrasing here). On the other hand, he may as well listen to it and wonder "how the fuck does this guy do all this shit ? I could try something like that".
