    Not The Actual Events - Physical Edition variations

    So from the pics we've seen, it looks like they're not all the same. Shall we try to collate all the different printing variants?

    Mine is still sealed, but I may risk opening it once I recover from the dreaded flu.

    I got a black envelope and opened it up, all mine says is "The winner for best picture, La La Land".

    I guess we all know where your physical component was actually delivered.

    Mine's black and white,

    Branches/Bones = White

    Dear World = Black

    She's Gone Away = Black

    The Idea Of You = White

    Burning Bright = White

    I remember Trent saying this is a story which starts where it ends, the color going back to "white" would be a nice way to showcase that

    I think this just means I need to buy a second copy. One to keep sealed in purity, one to ejaculate all over me.

    Just to clarify, this thing is just enveloped pieces of dusty b/w or colored paper(?) with lyrics and credits? No CD?

    So does the paper break down when touched, or is the bag just filled with carbon dust or whatever? Just need to know how much it can be fingered. Should've gotten two.

    Yeah, I just got mine in the mail today - midwest (Wisconsin) in the U.S. No shipping notification in my email, so it'll likely just turn up without warning. If you ordered along with other items @ the NIN store, the order status will remain "Unfulfilled," so that's not a reliable indicator of whether it's shipped or not.

    nin.com mailed me that the are sending me a part of one of my orders now...a shirt.
    I placed two orders when NTAE came out. A big one (vinyls, shirt, ntae...) and a small one with a shirt and the physical component and now I'll recieve the shirt from the smaller order (for my gf) and no envelope with dirt.
    yeah, they keep fucking it up xD

    I really did get mine, but I didn't open it. It's a black envelope sealed in an outer clear plastic envelope. I didn't bother opening it because I don't want black dust all over the place. I have two cats and one of my cats has allergies and I don't want her getting sick. No matter how much I clean the counter somehow she will breathe the one speck I didn't get. I put the physical component in between my slowly growing vinyl collection. If there was a meet n greet pass in there for the upcoming tour then I would take it out to the garage and open it up.
    As for nin.com all my purchases have been one item at a time or in some cases two at a time, (I'm on a budget, I have been buying a couple of vinyls per paycheck). Under my account on nin.com I have a whole bunch of orders that say "unfulfilled" when they switch to "fulfilled" thats when I know to start looking for them in the mail. They have never sent me a shipping notice.

    Nah, that was all I had $$$ for at the time since I had just been fired from my job.

    I just got mine in the mail and its my birthday. Honestly one of the coolest things I've gotten on my birthday especially because it was unexpected.
    Mine is in color and came with an X-ray of TR+AR. I'll try to make some HQ scans later. The euphoric comment on the warning label really caught me and I think I'll try looking and reading this while listening to the corresponding songs.

    Oh cool. I'm in Wisconsin, so maybe mine will be waiting when I get back from work.
