Trent Reznor Broke the Internet---Thanks A Lot Jerk
La Mer

In the new music distribution age, Trent Reznor has totally bypassed the entire music industry to release the new Nine Inch Nails album, Ghosts I-IV. It is a 36 track double album you can buy direct from you could if it weren't for every NIN fan out there trying to do so. It's all instrumental, and as soon as I've heard the entire thing, I will review it as I did Year Zero. So far I'm in love. This man just is such a genius. Pure genius. Instrumentals should all be like this. It's like modern day classical music. It's got that NIN-flavor but focuses on the subtle nature and less of the punch you in the face that we see in his music. Beautiful is what it is in a word. If you're interested go to and see for yourself. Just be patient. Trent broke the internet single handedly.

Oh, and thanks for distracting me from getting the writing I was SUPPOSED to be doing tonight, Trent.

Until next time,

Far Away Eyes

I can get that way about books...not often about music, but I understand.

I'm a format collector by nature. It starts with my first fave band, the Rolling Stones (I saw their big news of the day earlier and laughed at that, too). I have almost every album in at least one format and a handful in all three (album, cassette, CD). I got into NIN when I started college. I hated them at first. HATED them. I grew up on classic rock and the like, so this huge punch in the face Trent did threw me off. Then I heard A Warm Place and La Mer and decided to give him a chance. NIN became my second fave band. NIN happens to have a number system to catalogue the ablums, which makes people like me giddy. It just means I had to have them all. I have Year Zero in both formats that it came out on. I have With Teeth that way as well. Pretty Hate Machine is the ONLY one I have a complete set of. I would LOVE to have the Fragile in all three formats. It's too expensive on Ebay most times. I'm probably going to be out of the market the way the music industry is going, though. I don't know if in ten years if we'll have physical buyable releases or if we'll just buy downloads that we put in our ipods or burn ourselves. Sigh. I'm so analog.

Having grown up through the history of all those formats, I know I prefer mine in digital format right now...mostly so I can carry it with me.

But then, we all have our hobbies/obsessions. You wouldn't even want to count how many sets of knitting needles I own...

I don't even own an Ipod, that's how analog I am. I do have a cassette walkman somewhere, though. I see how carrying it with you can be easier, but I just like holding a physical album in my hand and looking a the notes and experiencing it as a real thing rather than just sounds out of my speakers.

A lot of knitting needles, eh? I have more bootlegs than I know what to do with. I SHOULD catalogue that and send the results off to my dealer but I'm busy and it'll take forever.
