    If it does use Flash, anyone wanting to peruse those sites should do so before the end of this year. Flash is expiring and at least three major browsers (Chrome, IE, FF) will be blocking it.

    That pdf isn't exactly the best quality, sadly. Bear in mind that some of it is transcripted. For example, 24.3.1's message played when you called a phone number. You can find more info (and audio) here: https://www.nin.wiki/12163331810#Transcription
    24.9.1 is a video whose website was found in some of the distorted breakdown of The Great Destroyer. You should watch that video. 24.9.2 further explains it.

    It's probably best to check each web page in 24.X.X order, look at it on the pdf and the netninja site, then check ninwiki for extra info.

    I'd recommend going through The Mailstrom last. It's a bit of a slog, to be honest.

    Perhaps the DEFINITIVE version of YZ will include some sort of walkthrough/archive of the ARG as a compliment to the album.

    Oh it has to be brought up in the essay for sure. Be insane if it reactivated and the essay and vinyl etc provided more clues.

    I think Rob would be a lot more involved than it seems he has been to this point if there were some sort of reboot/re-release of the original.

    I was going through the YZ multitracks over the past few days and noticed some of the tracks have some really odd BPMs. Good Soldier is 87.43, Vessel is 91.9941, and Capital G is 109.0001.

    Anyone have any insight or speculation on those?

    ARG

    In all seriousness, this may actually be something we missed. Trent did say there were some things he thought were obvious which were completely overlooked.

    Um...it’s been a while for me. Anyone have a guess as to the meaning of those numbers, if indeed we’re talking ARG? None of those full tracks were available before the album release, right? If I recall correctly, it went:

    ”My Violent Heart”
    ”Survivalism”
    ”Me, I’m Not”
    ”In This Twilight”

    And that was it before release day. So what would they even be pointing to?

    EDIT: Whoops. I forgot that the album leaked in toto a week before release day. But that doesn’t change the original question of how the numbers would be significant/what they’d be pointing to. Though it does remind me how sadly long ago all that fun was.

    The ARG continued a little after the album released. Year Zero itself contained many links to websites as-yet unseen, such as the morse code in AVOTT, Red Horse Vector in The Great Destroyer, and so on. My point is that just because this wouldn't have been found before the album dropped doesn't mean it wasn't anything at all.

    There may be nothing in the track bpms. Seems suspicious. It's too late now.

    @ rob on twitter, I think he'd get a kick out of hearing we found something 12 years later.

    Edit: perhaps they're shards, but those were mostly words, not number strings.

    Hello everybody, does anyone know where I can find full version of this interview? I tried on reddit but no response so far. You're my last hope ;(. BTW. Is there any kind of video interview hub? Something like ninlive.com but for interviews?

    Back in 05 while I was discovering NIN by naively downloading every track I could find on limewire, I ended up falling for the usual suspects (Angel, Legend of Zelda etc), one of which was labelled “Nine Inch Nails - Final Destination”. It was pretty much just a version of Into the Void which had these weird, garbled, manipulated screams over it and a little section with some vocoder vocals too. I really liked it, does anybody know of this or have it? I haven’t heard it in a good ten years and can’t find anything about it online

    It's on a remix bootleg I have been searching for a very long time, no leads.

    And for those who haven't listened to it yet

    Is this show real?

    https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/nine-...-739af699.html

    Special performance for the Make-A-Wish Foundation that took place at a rehearsal studio in Burbank, CA.

    Look at the submission notes for the concert:

    My Make-A-Wish, granted when I was diagnosed with Ovarian Germ Cell Cancer at 16 in 2005. Met the whole band, talked with Trent for several hours and played a set for my family and I in an unknown Brubank, CA rehearsal studio. Lasted about 45 minutes.
    Sounds plausible. They were on touring break at the time, and L.A. is where they were based. The setlist is period-appropriate. It was essentially a private performance for an audience of one (family), so I don't feel much is missing if it's not included on any gigographies. Difficult to corroborate. Maybe one of the band members of the time who is active on social media could confirm/deny (Ally, Josh)?

    Hi guys,
    There's a NIN or Trent track I've heard in a DJ mix with the lyrics: "Voices etched on my memory"
    Anybody know what track that is?

    My apologies. I just assumed you were a troll because a) it was your first post and b) a cursory google search reveals it's a line from 'My Own Worst Enemy' by Lit.

    Yeah it's not that song, nor is it a cover of that song. Sorry I can't remember more of the lyrics but it's 100% Trent's vocals.

    @Prettybrokenspiral Why the facepalm? Unless I'm thoroughly mistaken, that's not a line from a NIN song and a google search comes up with nothing but that Lit track or covers of it.

    Perhaps you could contribute your thoughts to this conversation.

    New to this exchange but, unless I’m missing attribution somewhere online, that’s not Trent? Everything I can find says the vocalist is Calyx, a.k.a. Larry Cons. I feel like it would be weird that there’s a guest vocal from Trent about which we were largely unaware?

    It's not him. GodShapedHole thought it was and asked what song had these words, and if you google the words there are literally only five results, and they're all about this song. I was just providing a link to the song he was looking for. Not NIN related at all.

    Does anybody know if Trent's old posts from the official board were ever archived anywhere? I see screenshots here and there, but nothing compiled together all at once. Every once in a while i'll remember a funny quip or short insight he posted and wish that those posts were still available.

    Does www.archive.org yield much if you type in nin-thespiral.com and look at archives from 2005-2006?

    I didn't even think of that. I'll start poking about and see what I find!
