    Then, I think you just invented it, unless, we're talking high synchronicity, and/or collective consciousness.

    At any rate, that made my day.

    I forgot how much I loved 34 Ghosts IV till all this Old Town Road got it in the news again. Although I prefer the second half of the song where the guitar cuts in (at least I assume itís a guitar, you never know). Didnít it either win or get nominated for an instrumental Grammy too?

    Wow, I don’t remember that.

    What seperates 34 from the rest of Ghosts? I never thought too highly of it or that it stood out in any way. Not a huge fan of Ghosts but there’s definitely some cool moments, just never thought 34 was one of them. Pretty bland IMHO.

    Yeah, I thought 31 Ghosts would’ve gotten nominated.

    34 Ghosts IV is the longest track on the album, and it also goes through a couple different instrumental shifts as it progresses. It's not an obvious choice, but I can see why it would get nominated.

    Something I Can Never Have (NBK) is better than the album version

    I sort of agree. Not that it's too different, but the piano that's added at the end is fucking brilliant.

    I'd seriously love to hear an edit of SICNH without the dialogue but with the NBK ending added to the end.

    As disturbing as the Broken movie is, I can enjoy it as I would to a horror film that I'd actually enjoy. What I also liked about it, is that I've always associated violence and destruction with anger, aggression and power-tripping, especially when left unchecked/unrestrainted. It just seems to make a lot of sense to me in that particular context, especially when considering the lyrics and overall sound of Broken. It also seems to be one of the perfect movies to watch when enraged, as it has actually calmed me down and helped snap me back into reality. I can only speak for myself though, but it actually works for me.

    This feels more like a confession though, but I thought that I'd post it here since Broken was discussed here a lot more, with the movie in and of itself being controversial, let alone the taboo of discussing violence even without graphic details. I have also wondered if this was one of Trent's ways of revealing some of the dark thoughts he's had regarding negative emotions, and/or just from simply observing the horrors of this world, including violence and destruction whether done with or without power-tripping and/or just plain sadistic and vengeful motives/urges/impulses/temptations. I was just reminded about this as well, because one of his interviews during The Downward Spiral era, he actually admitted that he wondered would it be like to kill, but also made sure to say that he obviously wouldn't go out and actually do such a thing.

Peter Christopherson and I made a long-form video for Broken that was the most horrific thing you’ll ever see, but I didn’t put it out because I didn’t want to spend the next five years explaining the thing to every reporter I meet. It makes “Happiness in Slavery’ look like a Disney movie.

    It also fascinates me how, aside from death and loss, that violence has been a theme with Nine Inch Nails from that start at Down In It (And with yet even more of a buzz from the FBI investigation mentioned on Hard Copy.), and an actual release called Add Violence, with some of the music videos aside from Broken being a given. Although, with lyrics and themes of self-destructing and overall sound and stage-show as seen during 1994-1995 at the peak of it, it'll clearly come with the territory. Even now, it also still sometimes messes with my mind of Trent having videos where he as the main character has been killed or just set up to die. If anything, it seems like in some ways, he has also experienced some type of occasional morbid curiosity/fascination with violence every now and then, (Which makes even more sense when you're also reminded that a lot of his lyrics are also based on pain, suffering and death.) and how it affects individuals and societies as a whole on all scales/levels morally/ethically. If so, then I absolutely agree and understand where he's coming from.
