Trent Reznor's survey...

[Reposted for any NIN fans on my LJ friend's list. I took this survey and it was pretty in depth - in a good way!]

 Hello everyone.

I'd like to thank everyone for a very successful year so far in the world of Nine Inch Nails. I'm enjoying my couple of weeks off between legs of our Lights In The Sky tour and got to thinking... "wouldn't it be fun to send out a survey to everyone that's shown interest in NIN?" Well, that's not exactly how it went, but regardless - here it is. As we've moved from the familiar world of record labels and BS into the unknown world of doing everything yourself, we've realized it would benefit us and our ability to interact with you if we knew more about what you want, what you like, what you look like naked, etc. I know it's a pain in the ass but we'd truly appreciate it if you'd take a minute and help us out. As an incentive, everyone who completes the survey will be able to download a video of live performance from this most recent tour (and I know what's going through your little minds right now: "I'll just grab this off a torrent site and not have to fill out the survey!!!" and guess what? You will be able to do just that and BEAT THE SYSTEM!!!! NIN=pwn3d!!!)

BUT

What if we were to select some of those that DO complete the survey and provide them with something really cool? I'm not saying we'll ever get around to it, but if we did maybe something like signed stuff, flying someone to a show somewhere in the world, a magic amulet that makes you invisible, a date with Jeordie White (condoms supplied of course), you know - something cool. See, you'd miss that opportunity AND be a cheater.

Do the right thing - help us out. You'll feel better. 

Thank you and I've had too much caffeine this morning,

Trent

Read this poem first....

Color- Blind

I always fancied I would date a black girl.

I would be magnanimous then, 

never flaunting my egalitarian pedigree.

I would gracefully decline to notice

the flicker of surprise when others met her. 

I would be pleasantly amused when they later confided, 

          "You never told me she was black"

"Of course not."

-Tom Hamilton **

How racist do you think the poem's narrator is on a scale from 0-10?

0 is "not racist at all"

10 is super racist.

After you have voted in the poll...read on

for the punchlineCollapse )

Songs about Art...

What are your favorite songs about art or the artistic process?

The reason why I ask is that I heard this song today about art that hit me pretty profoundly.

The song in question is called "Machines I Paint" and can be found here:

www.myspace.com/silenceinterrupted

I think it captures the melancholic and beautiful aspects of art as well as the courage it takes to make art. I also think it has a nice discussion about a certain type of artist - the secluded and lonely one. The song definitely reminds me of some people I know that do art and are good at it, yet have doubts and fears (like everyone else).

If anyone reads this and checks out "Machines I Paint",  I would be interested in your thoughts on it.

Also, I wanna know...what songs about art really strike a chord with *you* guys?

Callling All Geeks!

Most of my geek friends probably already know this, but ...

Firefox 3 is available today at 10:00 AM (Pacific)

From:

http://developer.mozilla.org/devnews/index.php/2008/06/17/firefox-3-available-today-at-1700-utc-10am-pdt/

"This morning at 10:00am  we began the process of sending the final version of Firefox 3 to our mirror network to prepare for Download Day. We’re just as excited as you are for our upcoming release, but we’re still putting the finishing touches on Firefox 3: preparing the new mozilla.com website, getting our severs ready for downloads, and doing our final pre-launch checks. We expect to be done at 10:00 AM (PDT).  Y

The files in the FTP directories of our mirrors are - for now - only meant to be used by our testers. We would appreciate it if our fans didn’t follow direct links there that they might see on sites like Digg, Reddit, or Neowin. Downloading them directly can harm our ability to distribute Firefox efficiently, and will also not be counted as part of our attempt to set a Guiness World Record for the most software downloads in a day. If you’d like to be notifed the minute that we launch, please go here to sign up for Download Day: Or just head over to getfirefox.com on Tuesday, June 17th at  10:00 AM. "
