nine inch nails - fixed

this is a remix album consisting of re-imagined songs from the BROKEN ep

when it comes to the nine inched nails...i wouldn't say that i had any sort of relationship with the "band" (and i use the word in parentheses because it's essentially trent reznor with whatever hired hands he brings in)

my introduction came in the form of the aforementioned BROKEN ep...and at the time i was getting into that whole industrial business (though i'd been a fan of ministry for i mentioning that in order to get some sort of street cred?...perhaps...)...and what got me was the volatile nature of the entire thing...screaming about giving it up and that there could be happiness found in being a slave and it was cool to wear leather and hang out with chains

and then i'd seen my first nine inch nails was for the song "happiness in slavery"...and at first i was all like "oh man! i can't believe the guy from THE BREAKFAST CLUB is doing this! you'd better show dick some respect" (turns out that it was a guy named bob can read about him here)

i'd managed to see nine inch nails back then (touring with david bowie)..and there he was...throwing what was essentially a temper tantrum on stage...and it was awesome

and then THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL was released...and of everyone else...i bought a copy...and it was just as good

and that is where i got off the bus

truth be told...there just wasn't enough anger to keep me interested

it's as if he took off his leather...folded it up nicely...placed it all in a box...and shoved it under his bed...and then started to write in a diary while sitting in a chair by a fireplace while wearing a sweater and sipping hot cocoa

i once again got to see them while out on the WITH TEETH tour back in 2006...and it was a totally different was a mix of aging goths and parents that had brought their kids (though towards the end of the show the old trent came out briefly to show his disdain for getting hit with a shoe)

mr. reznor decided to pack it in and call it a day back in 2009 (at least for the touring part) and started a studio only band called how to destroy angels (which oddly enough...sounds like nine inch nails)

"you know what,man? if i wanted to know all of this crap...i'd have used the google"

that's true

but would google give you a brownie?

"they'd give me a recipe so i could make my own brownie"

well played,google

well played
