NIN String Tribute In Stores Now!

If you haven't been paying attention, you might have not realized that Vitamin Records' String Quartet Tribute to Nine Inch Nails was released today. I'm rather critical of tribute CDs, and I have to say this one actually impressed me. It's the first NIN tribute disc to do so, in fact. The minimalistic string quartet approach to the songs is like a very elegant independant remix album, tracks such as The Fragile and Eraser standing out amongst the nine songs covered by Eric Gorfain and The Section. As we've mentioned before, Digital Noise ran an interview with Gorfain about a month ago, and you can read it here

As part of this release, we've got several copies of the album to give away, and since I have been very busy with school, work, and two bands, I really haven't been able to come up with a decent contest to couple with this give-away. So I've got a single question, which will be easy for any of you who've been paying attention - What item is in this photo that would help in keeping a tapeworm from exiting his host? Look carefully, and you will notice a butt plug on the end of the keyboard. While many people thought the answer was the Coke can (which theoretically could be used, there is pictoral evidence of this), we reported earlier on the hard-to-see butt plug before, and that was the answer I was looking for. I have stopped taking entries, and will notify the winners via email on Sunday. Thanks again!
