We have received numerous reports of a commercial featuring The Hand That Feeds
airing on late night television. Sightings include Comedy Central and Adult Swim (Cartoon Network), and have occurred over the past 3 weeks. Keep an eye out! Thanks to Darkmoogle and everyone else who sent this in.
Chris F. sent us an article from the May issue of Orkus
. Unfortunately my German skills are not quite up to some of the more complex constructions. If you have a translation of the article, please drop me a line.Here is the article.
Some interesting tidbits: TR is basically broke, with nothing left from the touring and records. He hopes for 20 to 30 million dollars in back-payment from Malm. There are some pretty choice words about how he feels he was handled (if I read that right). Also, he was afraid to release an playful 80's synth-pop track like Only
because it might not sound tough enough, and people would laugh at him. In fact, the whole "Prince of Darkness" image is basically washed-up, and now, rather than trying to live up to an impossible, dangerously ill and unhappy image, Reznor is doing only what pleases him.
Speaking of Only
, we've received a link to what I can only hope is the video for the next single, Only
... directed (and possibly produced) by BLu PaTaTo. Warning, it does contain about 45 seconds of the song Only
, if you're avoiding spoilers. Perhaps this is why Mr. Reznor was previous afraid of releasing such a song?
