A little weirded out they dubbed over Bowie's lines with another actor. Not sure what that was about.

I get it, sorta. Shrink the image down to a postage stamp size and suddenly it's a perfect look for an icon in a Spotify grid.

Everyone's playing the game. Reznor seems to think that openly talking about playing the game somehow nullifies the fact that he is into it just like everyone else.

July 26, 2017 on Trent Reznor: “When I Hear Grizzly Bear In A Volkswagen Commercial, It Kind Of Bums Me Out”
Like it was no small accident Nine Inch Nails released Ghosts I-IV before going all in on scoring movies. I seem to recall Trent even encouraged fans to make short youtube videos of visuals to complement the tracks, which he no doubt ended up using to shop around as evidence of how his music could be used to heighten a scene.

That trailer really nailed the ominous a lot more than I was expecting.

Eeeeeeeh...I know for the longest time (or so it seemed) that Trent Reznor really, really wanted to make some kind of Year Zero show on HBO. Me, I thought the album stood on its own merits well enough. All this ARG promo shit never pays off and almost seems to be a distraction the main thing, whether it's an album or a movie or whatever. Although if NIN is gonna make, I don't know, Year One, sure. Hook me up.

July 18, 2017 on Nine Inch Nails Reveal “Important” ADD VIOLENCE Back Cover
There must be some kind of cultural term for a thing that is not a relevant thing but a bunch of vested interests are very intent on how relevant that non-relevant thing is.

Start with Grassroots, maybe. It's their pre-Down album, and possibly their most consistent album. I lost touch after Transistor.

I don't really care who they have producing, as long as they don't make another album overstuffed with guests.

Isn't puzzlement and confusion sometimes a really good reaction to something new?

How sad that the only time I've ever even heard of Franz Stahl is being overshadowed by his poorly misjudged choice to badmouth a tragedy. I simply can't be arsed to think he's making any kind of cogent point here.

May 21, 2017 on Ex-Foo Fighters Guitarist Criticizes Chris Cornell For Committing Suicide
The dumbest and most honest thing is my emotional reaction over this was, "Wait what? No, Chris is fine, I just read an article about how they're still working on the new album," like that meant I actually knew and have hung out with him in any way.

May 18, 2017 on Detroit Police Investigating Chris Cornell Death As ‘Possible Suicide’
Ah, shit. Cornell has had, well, a LOT of troubles in his past (to say nothing of a soul-crushing number of friends who died way too young) but I had really wanted to believe so much of this was behind him, with everything he had done to rebuild his life, it really seemed like he was ready to be around for decades watching his kids grow up and doing various side projects.

I want to be excited for new Forest Swords bug I can't shake the feeling something that was present in Engravings is missing on this new stuff.

This whole set of circumstances is supremely fucked up. Why in the god damn hell would anyone reveal that someone died on the bus you'd be touring on. Let alone, you know, the whole premise of being someone grappling with sobriety and addiction and learning the person you are literally replacing is someone who died from the same kinds of things you yourself are fighting every day.

April 12, 2017 on Scott Stapp Says Scott Weiland’s Ghost Visited Him In The Bathroom
Anyone who wants doubt can find it, I suppose. But a trail revealing that these charges are much more legally complicated and less clear cut than they initially appeared when presented to the public is a pretty fucking far cry from the idea that Kesha was lying.

Although you make good points, they're very much points that only work out in a long-game sort of way-especially if you look at the actual conversion rates for streaming royalties. I would imagine Ty is looking more at the money he can make this quarter, rather than what stuff might be like in three years if he consistently maintains his profile without ever having to take a break.

Lanegan's been moving into a more techno direction for a while now, so it's nice to hear something a little more organic out of him.
