Trent Reznor copypasta

Recommended Posts

I was just reading this online and figured some folk here might appreciate it, although it is pretty long.

So, from the early days of internet....

SUBJECT: NINE INCH NAILS

Facts:

1. "Fixed" is a 12" of remixes from the "broken" EP. It is

tentatively due out on November 24. I gave various people I

respect full creative control to destroy any aspect of the

original song and see what happens... Remixers include Coil

and J.G. Thirlwell of Foetus. This record is not meant to

a grand statement of a new direction, it's just a 12".

2. The new full album I'm working on will probably be out

next summer ('93) and we will tour extensively from that

point on.

3. I'm not dead (yet), I am mad (still).

4. NO, that is not me in that Gatorade commercial. (We are

investigating legal recourse.)

Ok, assuming you are really the real Trent Reznor, why,

might I ask does SPIN magazine consider you the instigator

of the "industrial" revolution When up until recently, you

had only put out one album under the name Nine Inch Nails

and have been milking THAT for the LAST THREE YEARS? I'm

sorry, but writing music on midi is a breeze, how can it

take you 3 years to record another one?

Sheeah, right, as if!! You guys are all such a bunch of

suckers, you'll believe anyting you read. So, Mr. "Reznor",

answer me this question, who was your last girlfriend that

inspired all this music (which is NOT easy to do on a MIDI,

it takes time and talent) and made you so bitter about the

way the world works. Don't try dodging, 'cause I will know

that you are and will only get you kicked off the board for

a false ID, and don't give me a bogus answer, cause I know

the answer already.

SUBJECT: NINE INCH NAILS

hello again...

(still here, Simon)

My you people can get vicious!

Here's some facts to further confuse you as to my TRUE

identity. Over time, you will see that these are all true.

Hmmmn...

1. I've done a few interviews lately that will be coming

out over the next few weeks/months. Alternative Press (#54

-Jan 93) i'm on the cover (photos by Marina Chavez,

somewhere in there they make fun of the contents of my

kitchen). Musician (tent. 1/3 of the cover) and Melody

Maker (the cover) (that's an english paper, Simon)

2. Track #4 on 'fixed' is called 'throw this away'. It's

4.14 in length and contains parts of 'suck' and 'last'.

Look for Butch Vig's name in the credits.

3. I've completed a video for 'happiness in slavery' with

director Jonathan Reiss. It features performance artist Bob

Flanagan (from LA) and you will definitely not see it on

MTV due to content (it gets bloody). There is a short video

for 'pinion' directed by Eric Goode that features a toilet.

As of today, MTV rejected it due to S&M overtones. (I'll

explain what S&M means in a private note, Simon) 'The Box'

however, is going to show it. I just finished filming one

for 'wish' with Peter Christopherson (of Coil) but we

haven't edited it yet. I'm wearing black rubber gloves in

it and it also features Rich Patrick, James Wooley and my

original drummer, Chris Vrenna. (Chris Vrenna has a funny

nickname i gave him, a special prize will be awarded to the

computer nerd that guesses it correctly. Hint- it appears

on an album that he played on.) Let's see... I'm trying to

make a video for 'gave up' (which is my favorite track on

the EP) but so far attempts have failed.

4. 'Fixed' will have the same artwork as 'broken' with the

opposite color scheme. (that means it will have a blueish

tint, Simon)

5. I did a remix for Megadeth (the 'gristle mix') that is

originally 9.50 long. THey edited it down for the cassingle

and video...they may include it in it's entirety on an album

of all remixes they are talking about doing in

spring/summer.

6. I did two mixes for Queen: 'Stone Cold Crazy' and 'Tie

Your Mother Down'. I'm not sure what Hollywood records

plans to do with them.

7. To whoever asked me a list of specific questions...

Allegheny College (Meadville,PA), computer engineering, i

found 'Psychocandy' inspiring, but i don't like them now,

yes, i did a production deal with Sire, but i haven't

produced or remixed anything for them yet (and they are very

cool to deal with)

So there!

If anyone out there has any intelligent comments to make or

questions to ask (other than what i had for breakfast), i'll

check in every once in a while to shake you up a bit.

(that is, if Simon doesn't kick me off the network)

Love (as always)

Once again...

'fixed' is a collection of remixes from the 'broken' EP.

It is tentatively coming out Nov. 24 and it might be a

limited edition release.

(a lot of record company people are concerned that it may

create 'confusion in the marketplace' among consumers)

It should be substantially cheaper than 'broken'

because it technically is a single.

Okay, let's not quabble about who's the biggest fan, or who

doesn't believe so-and-so's identity, who's got the biggest

IQ, and all. If you still don't believe it's Mr. Reznor,

don't bother posting here. He's another human being with a

computer, and he happens to be on prodigy. Whoopie. Good.

This is the question I asked while you were suspended,

so it got returned. < more >

QUESTION: I'd like to know how your studio is set up. You

probably work in a few different places with different

equipment, but I'd like to know what your most used pieces

are.

1) Do you like Roland, Yamaha, KORG, Ensoniq, etc? I have

pretty obsolete KORG stuff: a DW-8000 k-board, and a DDD-1

dum machine.

2) What sampling units do you use?

3) What was your first synthesizer?

You probably have other questions from other people to

answer, so I won't mind if you don't write back right away,

or not at all. I just wanted you to know that I admire your

work and try to emulate it when I can. The saying about the

highest form of flattery applies I guess. Good luck with

Fixed and your videos.

Good to have you back.

(Any one else who posts, please try to keep this subject

civilized. If Simon shows up, don't drop to acknowledge him)

Hello everybody...

Thanks for the interest and all, but unfortunately i don't

have the time to answer all of your questions.

But, just to keep you informed...

'Fixed' has been delayed (by WEA) and is now due in stores

Dec. 7.

Regarding 1000 GAY DJS...

Al J. & i are friends, we were together in Chicago while he

was working on 'Supernaut' and i ended up singing it. (this

was happening at the same time i was doing Pigface)

I foolishly told my record company (TVT at that time) and

they created all kinds of problems for Wax Trax (1000 GAY

DJS label) to the point where i finally told Al to redo it

without me. The version that Wax Trax put out is Al, the

version on the NIN (bootleg, i might add) single is me.

There are no plans at this point of us (me & Al)

collaborating on anything else. We are however friends and

on good terms.

a side note:

Wax Trax just did a distribution deal with TVT...

SUBJECT: NIN-MUSIC-DISCUSSION

Hello again!

First of all, fact update:

Frank! Wow! Nobody ever asked me about that particular

sample before (middle of 'sanctified'). When we were

recording the record (PHM) we were experimenting with hiding

various things very far back in the mix. That sample is

from one of my favorite movies, 'Midnight Express'.

It's the scene where he is writing a letter explaining his

rather unpleasant situation in prison.

Thanks for listening so close!

Next, sorry, the rumors of live shows are just that. NIN

will NOT be performing live in the near future. I am

assembling the live band and will start rehearsing

(casually) in January and we may do some surprise shows

around L.A. after that.

And yes, if we do, i'll post them here.

Halo is my numbering system for NIN's catalog. Halo 6 is

'fixed'.

Extra lyrics? There were some lyrics that i had written

that i couldn't fit into the songs as i was combing lyrics

with music. I included them because i liked them and also

because they could be discovered by the person that took the

time to read the lyrics.

Regarding the warning for 'mono' devices...

Without getting too far in detail, a scientific property of

sound is it's 'phase'. When recording music in stereo,

you're supposed to be aware of it's phase. If not, certain

parts of the sound will disappear when it's played in mono.

So, we discovered that by messing around with the phase,

we could make elements of the music stand out rather oddly.

(remember Q-sound? -it's based on the same type of

principle)

So...certain songs on 'broken' we mixed out of phase

(because we felt like it)

BUT...

The songs don't sound right on mono devices (like some

radios or TVs). Has anyone heard 'happiness in slavery' on

the radio? I heard it on KROQ in LA and the snare drum was

gone through most of the song. (and yes, it kind of

destroys the groove!)

So, basically, that's what that means.

Blah, blah, blah.

I have some comments on your 'trendy' discussion, but i'll

save them for another time.

Love,

TR

Hi everybody.

Today's update:

'Fixed' release date has been delayed once again (by WEA) to

Dec. 7 (for sure).

I am not on any other networks (except PAN), so Ender or

whatever his name is is wrong. Sorry.

MTV rejected the 'pinion' video but for some reason

aired it unedited last 120 min. I think it was an error on

their part. Does anyone really find that clip offensive?

(side note: MTV's reason for rejecting it was: 'we can't

show the human form in any sort of bondage.' my response:

'what about Madonna?' response: 'Madonna is Madonna.'

-true story)

Speaking of MTV, 'wish' will debut on 120 min. this week. I

heard the feared words 'buzz bin' so it may go into some

sort of rotation. I seriously doubt it will be overplayed

due to the abrasiveness of the track, but who knows.

Regarding the 3" CD that seems to have confused many...

The last two tracks were leftovers from a 12" that should

have been released when we did lollapalooza, but due to

record labels.... ...so, i thought they were good enough

to be released, but did not fit with 'broken', so, i wanted

to give them away but keep them separate from the EP, so, i

came up with the 3" CD idea, but, my record label informed

me that it cost so much to manufacture that they could not

break even EVER regardless of sales, so, i compromised and

allowed the first 250,000 to have the 3" CD, and the rest to

have them on tracks 98-99 (so nobody would be ripped off).

That's about it.

Oh, is anybody out there familiar with the comic book 'the

crow'? If not, check it out and later i'll tell you about

an upcoming film project we may be involved in.

Regarding 'broken' on vinyl:

Our European record label, Island, put out both 'broken' and

'Broken' has tracks 1-6 on side one, side two is blank, and

there is a 7" single with 'physical' and 'suck' on it.

'Fixed' splits the songs over both sides. No extra tracks,

but they look cool (weird to see them real big!)

Also....

SUBJECT: NIN - FIXED AT LAST-

Attention K-Mart sample finders:

PHM had loads of samples from other people's records, in

fact, i think almost every drum sound was 'borrowed' as a

starting point for manipulation. Longer and more obvious

ones' creators were listed in the credits (this was before

sampling became such a legal issue).

However... i purposely didn't use any samples for

'broken' or the tracks i did on 'fixed'.

EXCEPT during 'pinion', the yelling and dissonant guitars in

the background are from the end of 'it's no game' on David

Bowie's 'scary monsters' record. (played backwards)

Jim Thirlwell sampled a lot of Timothy Leary for track 5 on

'fixed'.

-ALSO-

If any of you have any knowledge of 'old-school' rap and

have some time on your hands...

I sampled the drum loop that is prominantly used on 'get

down, make love' and i forgot where it came from...

... if anybody knows, please E-mail me. Hint: i know the

source record is from 1988-89.

SUBJECT: NIN- Q SOUND?

I'm bored, so here's a little story for you.

While recording at A&M Studios in L.A., i noticed among the

hundreds of old tape machines littering the hallways a

strange podium sized metal box with a computer monitor on

top. On the side it said 'Q-Sound'. Upon further

investigation, i learned that it was indeed the infamous

Q-Sound device (covered with dust, i might add.)

They told me when it first came out, the cost to use it was

either one or two points (percentage points of the artist's

profit from sales) of the record. That is a LOT. A

producer may get up to four points, usually one or two.

Well, guess how much it costs now?

$100 a day!

Q-Sound didn't turn out to be quite the revolution they had

hoped. So we hooked it up while we were mixing 'suck', but

the mix 'suck'ed, so we aborted it.

Q-Sound does work, but you have to be in a controlled

environment. It doesn't work in headphones or cars. TR

Hi everybody,

I'm still around, just not as much. The inane discussions

Nothing much is new i can tell you about, except we were

nominated for a grammy in the metal category ?!?

- figure that one out. (i hope we don't win)

Also in case anybody was wondering, the 'down in it' single

was only going to be released on vinyl (because my old

record label sucks) so i put most of it on the 'head like a

hole' single (which obviously IS on CD) - then the greedy

record label releases 'd.i.i.' on CD which is quite

redundant. Sorry if you feel ripped off.

Oh, try to find the import 'h.l.a.h.' single. It has the

artwork that was intended for the original release but

was rejected by TVT because it cost too much (it had

color).

It also has a cool other version (like you need one) of

Greetings.

New music & tour news: the new full record will PROBABLY be

out in august or september with an EP/12" single out in may

/ june. We will PROBABLY have two songs on the soundtrack

for the upcoming (summer release) film version of 'The Crow'

which is based on the comic book (we are also appearing in

it). One of the songs is Joy Division's 'dead souls'.

We will not officially tour until after the full record is

out. When we do, we will probably go around the states

twice, with different shows. We are only playing smaller

venues where we can be seen and interacted with, so in some

cities we may play multiple nights.

NIN mainstays for touring have been: Richard Patrick,

guitar; Chris Vrenna, drums; Jeff Ward, drums; James

Woolley, keyboards.

'now i'm nothing' started as a joke, later became the name

of a tour we did, and then was a lyric in a mini-song/ intro

for 'terrible lie' that we used for lollapalooza-era shows.

We have never done a cure cover.

And finally................

the cover of PHM is a photo of the blades of some sort of

turbine stretched vertically so they would look somewhat

like bones or a rib cage.

sleep well,

SUBJECT: NIN-ANTI CHRIST?

People don't tell you you must devote your life to God or be

damned. They are believing in God's Word -The Bible- and it

clearly states that "Unless you are born again you will not

enter the K ingdom of Heaven". Also, it states "That if you

believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus

is Lord, you shall be saved." They are not making up their

own "rules". They are just following what the Bible says. If

someone doesn't believe in the Bible, then I guess there's

not much to say.

SUBJECT: NIN UPDATE

...really bored and just checking in...

no, i wasn't at the grammys, but i did see michael jackson

at a party afterwards (he did NOT look human in real life).

NIN won! So what!

Remember, the awards and nominations are chosen by select

industry people, not the public. If you check out who was

nominated in some of the categories (including me for metal)

you realize how out of touch these people are.

We (Peter Christopherson & myself) are working on a

compilation video & laser disc for 'broken'. It should

include videos for pinion, wish, help me..., happiness...,

and gave up. If we are allowed to sell it, look for it in

late May.

Look for a new single/12" in June, and full all-new record

in Aug. or Sept. followed by lots of touring.

I am producing a band called 'prick' which will come out

this fall on my label.

Once again, the 3" mini-disc came with the first 250,000

copies of 'broken'. It cost the record label too much money

in manufacturing to continue making them.

'Fixed' was limited to 60,000 copies, they have sold out -

we just released 20,000 more so you should be able to find

it soon if interested.

The colored HLAH single (the import) is the way i intended

it to be released, but TVT released the black & white one

with all the extra (i think boring) mixes & ugly cover.

Bye

My EX-boyfriend was in love with trent Reznor. He is a

proud gay man now. NIN is just an eighties version of

TECHNO. TECHNO SUCKS. It's just one guy playing with

computers and getting off on it.

Hey, Melody,

My EX-BOYFRIEND was just like that. OBSESSED with

the boys turn.

I don't understand what this is meant to be. Its very confusing.

It is from a early version of the internet that pretty much just had newsgroups from what i can gather.

Basically there would be different topics and folk could post up their opinions about them, this is from a "modern rock" forum. It is quite confusing if you don't remember how the internet used to be, but i foolishly thought it might be of interest to someone here since alot of people who post here were around in the 90s and listening to music.

I guess it is pretty confusing to most people but there will be one or two people that get it.

or maybe not.

By the way Havona you racist idiot, you suck at trolling and there are shelves that need stacking so step to it!!

Dude you're posting on the wrong board, but don't worry i found the right one for you.

Here

I'm sure no one will laugh at your constant use of smilies and basic grasp of cognitive thought, it might even work in your favour

They aren't 'racists' either, they're nationalists just like you.

But seriously those shelves need stacked and clean up in aisle two.

As much as i would love to continue this flame war, you simply are not a worthy adversary.

In a battle of wits you are unarmed,

Also everybody knows i fucking rock dude, so going down the "you suck at djing" avenue is a waste of time.

So for everyone's sanity just bow out, you lost at interneting but you will recover.

Maybe read a dictionary and then get back to me when you have a clue.

I've got Fixed, though it's not that great TBH but my copy of Broken is broken....

Perhaps I'll play The Downward Spiral later on and get into a dark little mood.
