Jesus Fucking Christ

Okay, so we made the PAINFUL and CONTENTIOUS decision to put WTC on hiatus. Then what happens? Trent Fucking Reznor decides to make about 7 gazillion updates to his home page. While I'm on vacation and can't see any of it, of course. And it's a good thing that we're carrying the torch of greyhound rescue on our page because apparently he's decided that he doesn't need "Resources" anymore.

But Iris sent me this infinitely helpful link that shows all of the recent updates, and of course, I have some comments.

August 1st--pics from bus. Trent is not the best photographer.

August 1st--Russian "Survivalism" video. Didn't that lead singer guy show up in some Danny Boyle movie at some point? He kind of looks like Trainspotting's "Spud." In addition, I'm sure those Russians could tell Trent a thing or two about secret surveillance and having the police bust down your door . Bless 'em. Plus, I'm especially proud because I'm part Russian. (The HIGHLY DYSFUNCTIONAL part of the family, but no matter.)

August 2nd--Rob's toilet pic. Yeah. I still hate him.

After that...a bunch of hipsters taking tourist photos. Zzzzzzzz...

Also, while I was away, Iris had sent me a pic of the band looking very staged in their boredom while being stuck at the airport. Cute shoes, Trent!

So in this thread, post your thoughts and any new updates! You didn't think we were going to get THAT far away from Nine Inch Nails, did you?

If I were ambitious, I'd steal a pic for this post, but I'm feeling kind of crabby and tired at the moment. Ah, vacation!


Okay, so I changed my mind after getting some rest. This one is new...is it just me or is Trent really channeling Jason Lee in this pic?

Lollapalooza TOMORROW!!!!

"Is it I, Lord?"

Although shouldn't Trent be in the middle? Or is Josh Freese actually the Second Coming?

And apparently Alessandro didn't get the memo on Identical Short-Sleeved Black T-Shirt Day. Although at least he wore black. Thank God. He might have been fired otherwise.

I'd like to see someone get fired for violating The Dress Code.

Am I the only one getting a distinct "boys club" sort of feeling from the photos? For all the posing and angst they're all just big children.
(And it's kind of awesome)

Hi Maise, so your nice invitation after my first and last comment on WTC got me here. Thanks for not having fogotten NIN.
And I exactely thought the same thing about Alessandros inappropriate clothing.

Iris said...

Alright well first attempt at posting didnkt work but I was totally funny. I like how Alessandro is rebelling against the rest. "Fuck the short sleeve t-shirt memo and fuck looking like a hard ass rock band stranded in the airport I'm bringing out the teddy bear." Which, ladies, how fucking adorable was that?

I also like the picture of "assorted junk" with Jeordie's passport pic. I'm thinking it's almost time for him to renew since he's still rocking the no eyebrows look. Although, I probably shouldn't admit this, I totally had a crush on Jeordie dueing this era.

And Maise OF COURSE Josh Freese should be in the middle of that other pic. Don't you know he's like the Savior to band without drummers. If ever there's a band in need, there he is.

Oh and my spelling is probably only going to get worse throughout the day. Fucking Blackberry with no spell check option. I'll just make it into a game. See a spelling error, have a beer. That ought to make it better. ;)

Hey guys -- take this as some constructive criticism -- but "post NIN updates here, readers!" and "Discuss that harry potter book here!" isn't necessarily the best way to encourage or bring about a discussion.

Bring the viewpoint, you crazy bitches. That's what we want!!!

maise said...

Here's a viewpoint for you...shut the fuck up.

Iris said...

Maise is a bit grumpy from all the sun. You know we're in the dog days of summer after all. But just so you Gabriel, love, contructive critcism will get you BANNED! So suck it.

Iris said...

And I'm just going to think of this pic as Russian Pinion. Really Rob is it necessary to have your poo fetish spill over onto nin.com? Isn't that the whole reason you created Population Paste? Thank GOD that was one of the sites lost along with the other Resources listed. Really, if you guys ever decided to bring that section back I don't think anyone would be upset if that link was forgotten.

Gabriel said...

"Constructive Criticism Will Get You Banned."

Sweet!

Zeemort said...

I got cheap laffs at Population Paste before I realised that I'd seen far, far worse things online already.

I have what can only be described as "Train Wreck Syndrome".

Iris - I saw Alessandro's shocking plushie too!!!! Adorable?!? What are you thinking? I just hope he can quit his plushophile addiction before it's too late.

He should try -
