Checking in with Trent...

Thanks for the tip off Isabel. I've been immersed in the Twilight series these past two days and haven't really come up for air yet (or sleep for that matter). Two books in two days...I'm tempted to use the ole toothpick to eyelids trick today so I don't take a nap at my desk. And there are still two to go. *ack*

Don't judge me. They're additively bad, good, and hilarious from an adult point of view. Oh Bella, Bella, Bella. *shakes head*

Anyhow, check this out. It seems like a pretty cool thing for Trent to do. Anything that ups fan interaction is usually something I'm on board with. The first couple of questions seem reasonable enough. I'm too wiped to think of anything to add this morning.

3.30.09: Submit your questions for Trent to Digg Dialogg

Trent will be interviewed by Kevin Rose for Digg Dialogg, where questions are submitted by fans and voted on here. The most popular questions will be asked in the interview. Submissions and voting are open until April 4th at 12pm PDT.

April Fools Surprise!

I'm loving the new album so far...especially the song entitled "Feel Like Being Dead Again"

LOL, can we just have a Twilight thread? I read that book as a sort of education for me as a writer (who wants to sell a bazillion books someday) and to understand what all my female students are masturbating to at night.

It's soooooooooo bad, yet sooooooooo good! It's still kind of an enigma to me. Like, how could the worst writing in the world be so addictive?

Thoughts, ladies?

maise said...

I should clarify...I read the series...I just finished the last book. And boy, did Book #4 go off the rails or what? (No spoiling book #4, til Iris gets there...)

1) What's a pussygrinder? Sorta like p-control?

2) In the rainy Northwest, high school emotions are extreme and every moment is a crisis. Along comes a vegan bloodthirsty, but chivalrous vampire who doesn't want to bite (ie sex). Ohhh, the longing, and waiting.. and 13 yr. old lust. fin.

Check this out.

Iris said...

Ugg...third book is done. Now I just have to pester my sister to read the fourth one faster so I can get started on it. Maise, if you want to start a Twilight exclusive thread then go ahead. I should be good to go by Saturday.

Maybe my romantic side is nonexistent (or maybe just burned out on all the longing glances, lingering kisses, "his hands set me on fire where he touched my skin" lines) but at this point I'm just like "Jesus Christ, will they just fuck already or forget about it."

Then there are so many other reasons I just want to scream at BooHoo Bella. We'll see what #4 has in store.

A. Cat said...

Is it just me, or is Anne Hathaway kind of weird looking? Like, at first, she looks elegant and pretty, then you really look at her, and it's like, whoa.

Iris said...

Couldn't agree with you more, A.Cat. Each of her features are pretty on their own (her eyes, lips, etc.) but altogether it seems like her face isn't big enough for them all. It's a bit of a jumble.

Paint by Number for Adults

I noticed no answered my question, so I looked it up on Urban Dictionary.

Isabel said...

Just read some twitters by trent :

trent_reznor -At this stage in my career, there's few profession-related situations that truly make me nervous. Walking into one right now.

Then trent_reznor :YZ is alive.
about 4 hours ago from TweetDeck

Does this mean the TV series of YZ will go ahead? I really hope so!

Isabel said...

Got weekend tickets for Sonisphere yesterday - will see both Metallica and NIN, and also Alice In Chains, Killing Joke and other bands I really want to see, apparently Lars Ulrich wants to talk to Trent about how to go it alone without a record company. It will be the first time I've had a night away from my 1 year old, so both sad and very liberating at the same time

Isabel said...

Trent can make me unfit for work in 2 twitters. Not only is it very cute the idea of him being nervous before seeing TV execs, but now I'm imagining him reprising his role in the ARG in all sorts of interrogative situations on my very television screen. How am I going to get any work done today?

A. Cat said...

D'ya think Trent's going to be, like, Jake Hauer or something? Like a total 24 ripoff?

I bet he is.

Meanwhile, Cat Appreciation Day fast approaches, and not a P-E-E-P.

A. Cat said...

And, THANK YOU, Iris, for noticing about Hathaway. I bet she's not going to age well. At. All.

D:Angel what is the wedding date for you and the missus?

D:ANGEL said...

Wedding was last night and was probably the best night I have ever had. Friends, family. The man formerly known as Gabriel was there as were members of the old angelband.

There will be pictures.

Iris said...

Big congrats to you Angelman! Can't wait to see some of the pictures.

Finished the last of the Twilight books last night. Hmmm...not too sure what to think of the ending but I feel like I'm getting gypped. Suppose it was better than Harry Potter. Maybe. Meh.

The Cat Formerly Known As AngelCat said...

YOU CHANGED THE DATE AND DIDN'T TELL ME?

Just when I thought there might be a chance for a reconciliation...this.

Who did you get to be your ring-bearer, then? The dog from down the street? Somebody's scraggly-haired neice with the missing front tooth? Some bratty little bastard who peed in his pants?

Well, I'll tell you something Mr. Angel - I began a deep conditioning regimen two weeks ago to get ready for your "big day," just in case I got the call. Fish oil capsules, mayonnaise, heat wraps, rinsing with only Fiji water.

All for you.

All just in case I got the call - you know the one - "Oh, AngelCat, I was so wrong, I'm sorry, please, please, I want you to be there for the most important day of my life, we're picking up our tuxes on Thursday and I already put a deposit down for yours and we're going to Millions of Milkshakes afterwards and we can sing as many Hannah Montana songs as you want..." - and now this? Now I find out about the wedding on the interweb?

Well, I didn't piss my pants on Saturday, and my hair was anything but scraggly - at least, that's what your mom said when we were at Millions of Milkshakes.

The Cat Formerly Known As AngelCat - you are funky and i like your groove. A+

Iris said...

Angelcat, how dare he!

Speaking of weddings, I don't know how many of you follow Iowa news but this is fantastic news for my family (and loads of others): Unanimous ruling: Iowa marriage no longer limited to one man, one woman Momma and my "Step-Dad" can finally get hitched. Party plans are in the works. Angelcat, you are invited of course.

And in other news, Trent and Rob talk about the new iPhone / iPod Touch NIN app. These guys look either exhausted or bored out of their fucking minds. Also the line "...and i can tell you're thinking to yourself 'well, that's pretty cool'" sounds infomercial-y. If you're going that route and don't have the energy to make it sound snappy then I recommend hiring the ShamWow guy.

The Cat Formerly Known As AngelCat And Considering Being Known As AnistonCat said...

Iris, that's so kind of you to think of me. I will consider it, truly, but I don't know that I'll be able to make it.

I've been so depressed since finding out about being disinvited to the wedding this weekend that I've been spending the week in my velour track suit, the curtains drawn and pretty much face down in a can of Fancy Feast. It's not how I wanted to spend my early spring, but I just don't know else to cope.

It's probably a terrible idea to be reading so many gossip magazines, but it's weird, it's like I can totally understand what Jennifer Aniston is going through, I just can't figure out if Daniel was my Brad Pitt or John Mayer.

I'm totally blowing off my Pilates class tonight; I'm just not up to it. What's the point.

TCFKAACACGBAC said...

Shit, this stupid blog got my title wrong. It should read: "The Cat Formerly Known As AngelCat and Considering Going By AnistonCat."

Iris, I'm sorry for that outburst, but come on.

Felis Enigmaticus said...

Just think of Daniel as your designer pussy instead of a pussygrinder.

AnistonCat said...

Why can't I find a man?

I want to have babies!

Waaaaaah

D:ANGEL said...

Oh angelcat, Gabriel did mention you during his toast, referring to you as "my furry son"...

And mr and mrs Angelman got to hang with mr and mrs Maise last night - good times! ...and beer!

AnistonCat said...

You've left me for a fucking ghost dog?

That is LOW.
And creepy.

It's so over. That's it. I don't care how much you beg. I'll never come back. Take the picture off the milk carton, mister, because this is IT.

Maise, take note: THIS IS IT.

Maise, I H8U.

it wasn't a ghost dog, it was a blow-up dog.
