    Then, it will work by simply putting www.seven1963.org into your browser. All the file downloads are hosted on a MediaFire account which, to date, is still paid for and working.

    The other alternative is to simply use an archive.org copy of the page. When you click on a download link, you'll have to manually copy the MediaFire URL and paste it into your browser.

    http://web.archive.org/web/201605100...seven1963.org/

    Anyone interested in downloading something from there should do so ASAP, since we don't know how long the MediaFire account will continue to be paid for.
    That is just great. Thanks.
    I guess @ninlive collected the videos for the "video nin drive project" ? (or I only dreamt about it)

    I've got them all, and reconciled them with my own collection, and I'll work with ninlive to assemble the best and most complete video collection.

    I have been collecting. But it's a huge project for just one person and I have been pretty busy as of late with work and school. I haven't really put a lot of work into it since the summer.

    Thanks @TheBang we will talk soon!

    Don't worry there is no pressure whatsoever... And I am quite sure that a lot of people here (me first) would be super involved in such a project. Depending on what each one could do...

    Is "Big Man with a Gun" anyone's favorite track off The Downward Spiral?

    Don't mistake me; I love it. Spiral's my favorite album of all-time. But "Big Man" is my least favorite song on it. It occurred to me today, that probability dictates that it's also likely someone's favorite. But I've never met that person. Just curious.

    A couple of weeks ago I saw this hilarious video on Youtube of Trent ranting before a Euro show, saying how the promoter lied and mid-way through the interview he just said "F#ck it" and walked away. It might honestly be the funniest video I've seen of Trent and I was wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking about or where to find it.

    He is always moaning about European festivals because not headlining means endless compromises which Mr control freak is not happy about.

    Also did you see the part 2 to that video which is funnier and is TR moaning on the tour bus and then Josh Freese charges in and starts rambling about king Kong or some film or other?
    EDIT found the link

    Both of those were oddly delightful. Sometimes I get the feeling I would genuinely enjoy Trent as a human being.

    Haha he meant to say incompetence and said incompetent instead and said fuck it and bailed. I never caught that before.

    Lol I forgot to mention the second part of that video, I love when Josh Freese walks in and gets so excited talking about King Kong and Trent just ignores him and keeps ranting, WorzelG, thanks for reminding me!

    Yes, it's actually one of my favorite tracks as well.

    I don't really know that many people in real life I can discuss NIN with, but for the ones that I can chat about NIN with, at the very least they found it to be way too short, or they also just skipped it due to being among their least favorite songs from TDS. I also haven't met that person either now that you've mentioned it.

    It's 50% a NIN question, so I post it here, as I am too lazy to search for a headphones thread.

    So, I bought a new set of headphones, actually my first proper headphones, so a round of applause everyone, thank you, thank you. My problem is, however, that while some songs (in general, not talking about just nin) blow me the fuck away instantly, some sounds rather lackluster.

    Here's The Collector for example. WT being my favorite NIN record of course I was eager to give it a go with my new headphones, so I started with The Collector, but after like 4 seconds I had to stop. The drums sound weak, and that is an instant no-no. Part of the reason I love that record so much, because it's a lengthy drum porn, with my 20$ earbuds The Collector's beginning usually rip my head off. Not now, though. Should I tweak some EQ settings? I have no idea which bar does what, but me no likey this setup with With Teeth.

    Love that cheeky red line.

    Not sure about the bars, but when it comes to NIN, generally the first thing you want to do is turning that normalizer off (hangerőszint-kiegyenlítő for you and me). Are there any further options or presets?

    Nah, just the ones you see: movies, music, games.

    It's not a general problem though, the drums on Korn's newest record sound dope with these settings as well, but WT got much weaker.

    Generally not a great idea to mess with the EQ settings since it's a record that's been mixed the way Trent intended it and you'll just mess up the sound if you EQ it yourself. The reason it sounds bad can be many, how long have you had the headphones? Maybe you just need to get used to them. Was your old pair some "mega bass boost" kind and these aren't? Then it takes a while to get used to the sound as it's meant to be. Maybe a link to the headphones you bought and it'll be easier to come up with the solution?

    ATH m50x, bought it 2 days ago. I had ~20$ Philips earbuds, which is surprisingly decent, especially for its cost. Nothing audiophile about it, but sounds good with every genre.

    Well these headphones really doesn't need any EQing done. If you used the same audio source with these and the 20$ philips I think you just need to get used to them. Earbuds and cans are of course also different and maybe requires time if you're used to one of them. If the sound is bad you have to blame mr. Reznor

    Okay, it's actually not as bad as I first thought so. I disabled sound-equivalization as well.

    Oh, there are cymbals in this song! Today I learned...

    Umm... it was.

    What does it do btw? I hear a slight improvement upon turning it off, but not sure what it did exactly.

    I'm unsure what Dolby algorithms do specifically in their headphone apps, but part of the classic Dolby surround upmixing (i.e. creating faux surround out of stereo sources on your 5.1 home theatre receiver) is using EQ filter and phase rotation in the back speakers. Considering you're still in stereo headphones, I find it safe assuming they still knock stuff 90ş out of phase to create the spatial cues. The first things to get wonky are drum transients.

    I'm sure this has been answered before, but who all is in the video for Gave Up that was shot in the studio? Obviously there's the band and Marilyn Manson, but who else is featured? Side note: I hope the video version of Gave Up gets a proper release at some point. I go back and forth on which version of that track I like best.

    Richard Patrick, Brian Liesegang (of Filter), Chris Vrenna, and Marilyn Manson. All shot at the infamous Sharon Tate house.

    Something ive always wondered....So the wish remix on fixed, when midway thru it goes into the traditional version of wish for a few minutes...during the chorus there's a harmony I can't hear on the original version. Is it just buried in the original mix or was that added by thirwell? Always wondered if that was TR or not. I kind of prefer that version.

    Yep it's there, on every chorus except for the last.
