"Everything" by Nine Inch Nails. i know, it doesn't sound like NIN at all. it's as if Trent's directions in the studio to his band were, "okay, guys, for this one, we're not Nine Inch Nails, we're Blink 182." it sounds like a Blink 182 song...but i like Blink 182...kinda.
that was the point. it's not a tragedy. it's called artistic growth, or something. there is no need to freak out. there is no need to sign any online petition from the "real fans" trying to ban this song from the Earth forever. this song will alienate the "true fans"? you can't bury a brilliant aural idea once it's recorded, it has a way of creeping back up through the ground like a zombie. you can shut down radio airwaves, but you can't shut down a soul's waves. like a goth surfer, Trent's new direction strikes into your subconscious when you're sleeping.
what, you're saying i'm not a "real fan" if i don't sign this? hey, i'm the biggest NIN fan there ever was. i like Trent more than he likes himself, which for awhile there, he really didn't like himself too much, did he? things are a little better now for him i assume, there's more security and settling down, which makes for more introspective, relaxing, meditative, '70s funky beats rather than the angry, guitar-driven, shouting, pure-rage songs of the past. check out the new album if you haven't already, it sure puts a zing into your morning yoga routine.
i can prove to you that i'm the greatest NIN fan ever. i didn't just settle for the bare-bones tracks, i bought the exclusive album with the beautiful booklet with all of the pretty, unsettling artwork and the extra CD of remixes. yeah, i went for the extras, that's just how devoted i am. it was more expensive, but that's what goths do, we're unpredictable like that, we're crazy with the cash, even though money is ultimately meaningless like life, we carry it around, it's ironic or something. it's dark, it's metal, it's music, it's anti-establishment. i have to work an extra shift at 7-Eleven now, that's hardcore, that's atheist, that's anti-corporate, i'm not selling out, i just really like their Coke Slurpees. the Man brings me down everyday, that's where my art comes from, my pain is real, my manager is ruining my life. okay, so my squeaky-voiced manager is younger than me and is a Tool fan, but you get the general concept.
just relax and enjoy the music. pop open a blood-orange soda, don your black cape and insert your plastic Dracula teeth---i mean that's what i do, i dunno what your process is---and
