    Depends on what you look for in a community. For me at times it's a bit too much like reddit. Corny af humour and same trivia ad nauseam.

    There's a small Nine Inch Nails story here at 27:50, but with no names being named, I didn't get it at all. WTF happened to whom? Any native speaker help?

    Here's the doc he's talking about. From some comments, it looks like Richard Patrick talks about not liking the pay or treatment he got on tour with NIN but then putting his band under similar conditions while touring with Filter.

    Nope. Clickbait nonsense, especially if you listen to the full interview.

    What are these things on Chris' kit? I assume electronic pads or just triggers with N (no) and Y (yes) on them? Like to turn on and off some samples running in the background? Or is it something else?

    They look like just regular Roland-style drum triggers with tape on them. You can see them in another shot but with different tape placement -- https://www.goerie.com/gcdn/presto/2...renna_live.JPG

    They could easily be rigged up to start / stop samples running, or just trigger samples. That's a pretty common mode and technique that drum pads like those are used for.

    Ever since I saw the big rack of samplers right next to Chris in the MOTP video I always thought he was in charge of syncing all the backing tracks to his drums for the rest of the stage; so that "on / off" theory could definitely be applicable.

    My 10-year-old wants to know:

    Is it nine one-inch nails or is it nails that are nine inches long?

    can anyone link me to a download of the niggy tardust survivalism remix that actually has saul's original lyrics, not the yearzeroremixed version? the one that i think was only on myspace? (lol.) i assume it's ok to ask for since it was never officially released, and i was listening to YZR last night and realized that version isn't in my library anymore...

    I remember years ago around the time the Definitive Editions came out the versions of NIN albums on iTunes/Apple Music got reuploaded with updated artwork, explicit tags etc - does anyone knows if the masters were changed or updated too (maybe replaced with the DE ones in case of Broken, TDS, The Fragile) or are they the still original releases?

    Just wondering because I reset my iCloud Music Library and getting the definitive edition NIN tracks to either all match or upload has always been the bane of my existence. It's a 50/50 chance if a song will match or upload instead and the inconsistency bugs me. Even if the difference might not be audible I KNOW and it bugs me which is dumb but that's the way my damn brain is wired.

    pretty sure they’re the original releases - i remember being annoyed by the peaking bass in the definite version of all of the love in the world so i kept the streaming version

    literally why I turned match off. I care about the count being right in iTunes but I don't care enough to have it a) not work 75% of the time and b) suck up so much bandwidth to upload/match my 600+ GB music library.

    It's such a pain in the ass.
    Most of the time I don't mind if there's a mix of matching and uploading but for stuff where there are tracks crossfading into each other like a lot of NIN ones or there are a lot of different mixes/masters (the DEs, Hesitation Marks audiophile master etc) and it's not correct it bugs me immensely. The Frail into The Wretched with the AAAAAAAAs and there's a split second gap of silence? No thanks!

    There is a trick where your source file is 16/96khz it forces an upload and Apple does a decent enough job of resampling it back to 44.1 but the flip side of that is you only have the lossless source files on the host device where you uploaded the song and the lossy version elsewhere while if you can get a match its lossless everywhere.

    I just wish there were a way to tell it "no thanks, I don't need it to match anything" but still get the benefits of that feature otherwise. Just...god my internet that month was boned so hard.

I mean, that's amazing that I can buy NIN shirts in a lot of places that's not nin.com, but lately I've been seeing a lot of shops that I've never heard of selling unique NIN shirts that were never officially previously made, nor sold at nin.com

    My point being, I still remember the subculture of music that made fun of bootleg shirts worn by users, including TR himself. How can you even differentiate bootleg anymore if everyone starts carrying NIN shirts? Does it even matter anymore?

    Doesn't it make you feel better?

    (I'm all up for NIN becoming an apparel statement brand like Supreme lol).

    JC Penney was carrying a NIN shirt about 5 years ago.

    Does anyone know when Spin Magazine reviewed Pretty Hate Machine? Anyone have a scan of it? It's not on the Hotline's archives, and I'm curious when they reviewed it because the hype sticker on early copies has the quote "raw, uncalculated, seductive" and I'm wondering when the earliest that sticker would have been available. There is an interview from Feb 1990 that mentions those words (https://www.theninhotline.com/archiv...cle.php?id=535) so I'm guessing it was before that.

    I'm fairly certain the Feb 1990 issue is where the quote originated as I searched an online magazine repository (maybe Google books?) from August 1989-February 1990 for adverts and reviews. If I can remember where the online source was, I'll post a screenshot.

    Regardless, I don't think the hype sticker was manufactured before February '90. There may have been some kind of media push in early 1990 as PHM entered Billboard's Top Pop Album chart the week ending February 10, 1990. *edit* It dropped off the Top 200 chart in November 1990 & reported sales were uncharted until it made it to the Pop Catalog chart June 1991 (with sales tracked by SoundScan).

    Yeah, it was Google Books Page 11. Jan 1990 page 18

    Thanks for digging that up! I had no idea back issues like that were available on Google like that.
