Fade to Black

So we hear the current NIN lineup could very well be at its end. Well I didn't want to see them go without some sort of little tribute so I did what I do best: bad fan art. What? You didn't think I was done with all that nonsense, did you?

In all seriousness though, it's been a job well done, boys.

Ok, I just realized tomorrow is today!

They're giving their last performance right now.

And if I had a left nut, I would give it freely to see them.

Oh well...

Persephone™ said...

Oh, I almost forgot, I have a link here for a rather interesting interview Reznor did from Hong Kong. Enjoy!

Iris said...

Oh I know! I've already seen this lineup 5 times now but I wouldn't have minded seeing their last show together. And in Hawaii to boot. I guess I'll just have to live in through YouTube like everyone else who can't be there.

I'll have to check that out later. The sound seems to have left my computer once again. Piece of shit. Grr!

Kimmerly said...

I wonder who all's leaving. All of them? One of them? I just hope the people that replace whoever is leaving are as good, haha.

Iris said...

Well from how I read it I think it's all of them. It'll be interesting to see what kind of crew he rounds up next. And also will be interesting to see what he'll do as he nears the end of his record contract (if he hasn't already fulfilled it by releasing the remix album). Exciting times to be a fan. Hope he pulls off all he’s intending with getting away from the record companies.

I think it is as good a time as any to make my announcement: I will be playing guitar in Trent's new line-up.

Iris said...

Oh Danny A I'm so happy for you! Will you take Angelcat with you on tour?

maise said...

My dream NIN lineup:

Trent Reznor
B.C. Bishop
Danny Angel
Hott Lixx Houlahan
and uh...Ringo Starr?

maise said...

btw, I need a photoshopped pic of that lineup, STAT.

Iris said...

lol! I'm on it Maise!

Danny Angel said...

Dude if that was the lineup I would SOOOO play with NIN, every day until they end of time.

I'm sure if Hott Lixx, BC and I were on tour with Trent his "angry youtube confessionals" would increase.

There will be a Year One album we will be the tour lineup for and it will have the exact same cover as Year Zero EXCEPT the presence's hand will be Angelcat's paw reaching down from the heavens.

From one artiste to another, I just wanna say that those drawings are really lovely. I keep thinking that I really need to use more traditional media myself instead of just using photoshop and suchlike all the time.

I'm hoping that all these changes (end of contract, members go byebye) are the harbingers of something new and sexy and exciting. Maybe it's just me, but things have been feeling a bit stale since the ARG fizzled.

My vote for new NIN lineup:

Angelcat (lead everything)
Dog The Bounty Hunter (in charge of sass, brah)
The Ghost of Charles Nelson Reilly (in charge of gayness from beyond the grave, as well as ascots, large eyeglasses)
The Ghost of Bret Sommers (in charge of fag-haggery from beyond the grave, comic foil to TGOCNR)
Criss Angel (in charge of freaking our minds)
Britney Spears (duh, y'all)

maise said...

Wow, JR, I like your "Match Game"-themed NIN lineup.

Can't we involve Internet Celebrity du jour Chris Crocker somehow?

JR said...

I'm afraid he'd be a little too emotional to reliably perform.

Better stick with the consummate professional Britney. She doesn't let sentimentality stand in the way of a good performance.

maise said...

Come to think of it, Chris Crocker could make a reliable Trent replacement--he'd be raging on "March of the Pigs" and suitably weepy on "Hurt."

Persephone™ said...

You know, I finally got the opportunity to view Chris Crocker's wonderfully informative and enlightening diatribe. All I gotta say is whenever I feel that I might be a little TOO interested in Reznor, I have found the source that will make me feel 1000000000000000x's better.

Zeemort said...

I have some HILARIOUS (and brain-scarring) photos of Chris Crocker. He's on some Livejournal Community called 'Suicideboys'.

That should give you a basic idea of what kind of hilarious they are, if you're acquainted with suicidegirls.

Iris said...

Persephone are you implying that I'm the only one here who has a "Trent pool" of all his posters, magazine covers, photo shoot pictures, etc?

And Zee I don't know why I follow your tidbits. Morbid curiosity I guess. Did you make it to the picture with the green leopard print tights? *shudder*

Zeemort said...

I did, that was about where I gave up and retreated to my happy place. D:

emerald527 said...

Oh, I've got my archive, too. Though mine was compiled for the sake of journalism... yeah, that's right, journalism.

And that Crocker kid can hurry up and die in a fiery crash already.

maise said...

Now, now, there's a part of me that loves and embraces Chris Crocker in all his overwrought melodrama. If you read about him, he's actually a tough kid--being the gayest gay to ever gay and living in the deep South where he receives death threats all the time. He gives off kind of a J.T. Leroy vibe, only he's not some figment of some middle-aged woman's imagination. At least I don't think so...

Anyway, if the majority of us came to this site because we fell in love with Dierdre and Gabriel or identified with them at all, we have to give it up to Chris Crocker for keeping it real. Hilariously real.

JR said...

Chris Crocker has the best teeth out there since Martin Gore got his fixed.

I mean, I know I'm kinda dwelling on the MG tip, but it's no secret he had some funky teeth.

But the torch has been passed.

Persephone™ said...

Oh. My. God.
Can we go any faster?

maise said...

I don't know about Crocker's teeth, but his eyeliner is FLAWLESS.

Sorry I've been kind of quiet lately guys...I'm working two jobs these days, and I'm EXHAUSTED.

I've got a fun post planned soon, though.

lavender said...

Chris Crocker kinda creeps me out. Like that whole Brandon Tina thing. I fear for his life.

Zeemort said...

I keep finding myself getting kind of annoyed about the comments questioning Chris' gender.

Apart from the fact I don't think he's said that he identifies as a 'non-conventional' gender, why do they have to bring it up in the first place?

People seem to be missing that transvestite != transgender/transexual, but I'm in danger of going into rant mode so I'll stfu.
