I wonder how weed was involved in that one. Great stuff.
I was aware of Sea World’s treatment of their whales prior to seeing Blackfish and therefore banned myself from going there. Just seeing Blackfish reinforced my self imposed ban on Sea World. Kuddos for those who are taking a stand against Sea World.
My favorite off the album. Wait, I can’t pinpoint a favorite off the album. It’s too fantastic.
For me, Ringleader is #1. I can’t believe it’s put last. I can listen to that album in its entirety over and over again.
No. Trent showing up to win Oscars: yes. Grammy awards: no.
Yeah, but then NIN would be up in the “indie” category. I don’t think I like the indie label but the alternative label is irrelevant these days.
So NIN is up for a Grammy? I wonder if Trent Reznor is pleasantly surprised or just still hating the whole idea.
My favorite part of the interview comes off at the end:
“Would your new material still be released under the High Flying Birds name?
I don’t know if I’m going to keep that name or not. Probably will, it’s such a fucking good name. I might change the Noel Gallagher bit – call it “Paul McCartney’s High Flying Birds” and see if I sell any more tickets in America. [Laughs]“
If I could up vote a million times, I would.
Oh yeah, I forgot Haxan Cloak. That’s my #2 album of the year. (…Like Clockwork is my #1)
With a mention of turkey slaughter, right?
So, as a Yankee, where can I get the UK version?
I’m surprised that:
-MBV didn’t place higher
-….Like Clockwork didn’t place at all
-No Gov’t Plates?
Oh, and any Where’s the Beef article and Morrissey is just asking for it.
Ok, so I’m a vegetarian and I happen to love Thanksgiving (minus the meat). Morrissey, I love you. You need to realize that there is a happy medium here: just don’t eat the turkey. Eating copious amounts of stuffing and cranberry sauce should do the trick. I realize the point here is about killing all those turkeys, but, Moz, you’re a Brit. Leave Thanksgiving to us Yankees.
Max Headroom should be Em’s permanent alter ego.
Holy. Fucking. Shit. Batman.
What the fuck did I just read?
I can’t get enough of this.
Finally! I’m glad the Yeezus reference came up here.
Choices were tough, but here are mine:
Album: ….Like Clockwork (QOTSA)
but it could have been MBV (My Bloody Valentine) or Excavation (Haxan Cloak)
Song: Bo Peep (Do U Right) (Shlohmo & Jeremih
but it could have been Memorial (Russian Circles & Chelsea Wolfe) or The Drop (Haxan Cloak)
Video: Your Life is a Lie (MGMT)
but it could have been Papi Pacify (FKA Twigs)
I haven’t taken a listen to Ex Military yet (I know, shame on me) but I feel that NLDW is DG’s pinnacle in their career thus far. I think that DG’s is pushing the listener’s limits on Government Plates- and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
I want a shirt with the Death Plate on it.
Scott, I’m so glad you wrote this article. I was aware of Andrew a few months ago and was there at the NIN show in LA when Trent gave Andrew a shout out. Then to see the Las Vegas clip where Trent face timed Andrew just pulled all emotion out of me. This is another reason why Trent is so fucking fantastic. He has turned a fan into a true friend of his and us in the NIN community.
Andrew, if you read this, I wish you nothing but the best. You are incredible and have all the love in the world.
