subject: Reznor

Is Trent Reznor too fucked up to care anymore? I keep reading one bad NIN/JA review after another. What the hell happened? Why is he twittering? I don't care much for Twitter either. Why is he allowing his new gal to smear his business all over the web? She's poison. I've lost my faith in him, I thought he had better sense than that shit.

Sincerely,
Irit

Hiya Irit,

What shows are you hitting this tour? Seen any of the more recent tours?

In the reviews I'm reading, they tend to either be pro-NIN & anti-JA, or anti-NIN & pro-JA. Some of them don't even bother to mention SSSC, which is a shame, given what a tight group that is.

Trent posting to Twitter is having zero effect on his ability to put on a good show. Him having a girlfriend is also having zero effect on NIN putting on a good show. Assuming you've got a ticket for an upcoming gig, you'll see this for yourself.

Matthew,

You are wrong. I was at the Austin show. It was very lame. Unfortunately, the NIN camp isn't seeing this as others view the situation. Perhaps if Trent layed off the Twitter and concentrated on the show, we would have gotten a better experience instead of a stale show.

As for the girlfriend, she's disgusting with her inappropriate behavior. I wouldn't let my gal put out that kind of shit. She took photos of Reznor's pool while he was on tour with another man there. That's damaged goods, not caring that your man is semi-famous and pyschos could find his house. Where is the commom sense?

Sincerely,
Irit

Don't worry Irit, I'm sure you'll be there with loving arms when Trent realizes the mistake he's made. You can take care of him! This is just your way of reaching out. Maybe I can send him your email address and you two can be friends.

I heard the Austin crowd was awful. Having played a few hundred shows myself, I know that if the audience sucks, it's that much harder to get into it yourself. Sorry you were part of a bum crowd. I luck out in that every show he plays in the Philly area utterly destroys. Color me spoiled.

Matthew,

I am male and have no loving arms for any guy. I am not gay and think it's pretty shitty to imply that I am. You are clueless and make excuses for Reznor. Pity that you couldn't give him some sound advice instead of being a yes-man. By the way, it wasn't the crowds fault and the crowd did not suck. Perhaps you haven't been in the biz long enough, but Austin is a music town. We know good performers when we see and hear them. Reznor was not at the top of his game.

Irit,

Apparently you've got some affection for the guy, reaching out to try and help like this. Although emailing someone who's been running a NIN fan site in some form or another for 13 years and expecting me not to be a little bit biased is kind of foolish on your part. He doesn't tell me who I should be seeing, why should I tell him who he should be seeing?

Also, don't know if you saw it on our twitter, but this video is high-larious:

Look fanboy, I wrote you to find out if Reznor was back on the dope. It would explain his pussy behavior and why he went for a loud-mouth stripper. I used to respect the guy before he gave a shitty performance and vomited his pyscho personal life all over the web. Now, I realize he is surrounded by pansy yes-men and is delusional. I never told Reznor who to see, I asked about his bizarre actions. No, I don't follow you on twitter. I thought you could forward my email to him as feedback since you have been a fanboy for 13 yrs. that is the only reason I emailed you. What I got in return was a crappy marketing pr email from you where you implied I was gay. Nice, did they teach you that at your web dev company or did Reznor imparted his timely wisedom to you?

You wrote to me - a guy in Pennsylvania who in his spare time maintains a fan site - thinking that I've got the inside track to T Rizzle, telling me that his girlfriend is poison, and that you disapprove of the way he's shed some of his mystique. I'm sorry the Austin show sucked, I think even Trent said something to the effect of "not one of our better shows." I think it's humorous that you state that I'm a yes-man, and then later go on to say Trent is surrounded by yes-men. Do you think I'm part of some inner circle?

You're assuming I implied that you are gay. In fact, here in Pennsyltucky, as well versed as I may be in worldly things, I couldn't quite place a gender to your name. I did a Google Image Search for "Irit", and the first page of results had more women than men. The joke wasn't that you were gay, the joke was supposed to be that you're a groupie. My bad!

Nonetheless, I still don't fully understand why you're so concerned about the guy, and how you think I can do anything about it. He seems to be doing alright. I can't knock the guy for getting engaged to an attractive 22-year-old asian musician... I did the same thing over six years ago, got married not too long after, and it's been a fucking blast. Hehe.

Stop contacting me. Yes, I assumed you knew Trent Reznor because he posts on your website. Reznor's behavior seems out of place so I thought I would inquire, you made it into some kind of love affair. Yes, I do think you are a yes-man since you defend him and his rude maniac behavior. You could have just submitted my email to him without your ass kissing comments. Today, the radio here voiced the same opinion I gave you regarding the show and Reznor's out bursts. They said something to the effect of "didn't he recently get happily engaged to a woman he knew only a few weeks" and then said, "he has a fragile personality and wasn't as happy as he lets on, maybe that's why the concert sucked". Not my words but the radio. I am not too concerned about Reznor but thought he should get FEEDBACK REGARDING THE SHOW. Reznor must be surrounded by yes men since he has had these outbursts and maniac behavior in the last couple of weeks. No, I am not a groupie such as yourself. I'm 46 yrs. old, married with kids. You have read way too much into my email and created somekind of fantasy. If you contact me again, I will contact your employer and have a little conversation with the head of your company. No joke, that's how I roll.

Irit
