Reported by drunkpoet at 21:37here, and Monica's got a slightly older, leaner interview from the St. Louis website STLtoday.com here. Thanks both.
Reported by drunkpoet at 20:22Sunday, 10/30/05 official Saul Williams website has confirmed that he will be opening for NIN at the rescheduled NIN show in San Diego on November 20 (click on "On Tour"). Thanks to ladyotms and Matthew Harris for submitting this.

"Trent will be appearing Monday morning on "Elliot in the Morning" on DC101 in Washington to promote Wednesday night's show at the MCI Center. You can listen to the interview live on DC101 by going to the website (www.dc101.com) and registering for free if you don't live in the area. Finally, something to look foward to on a Monday."
I'm not sure if even a new TR interview would really make a Monday worth looking forward to, but it's certainly better than nothing.
Reported by drunkpoet at 02:35website, the October 1, 2005 show at the Hollywood Bowl was his last with Nine Inch Nails, for reasons unrelated to his health. He says:
i've learned much about myself and those around me (particularly in the last month) and it's brought about many positive changes. my association with the organization has opened many doors- i'm grateful and i'm ready to move on.
Read the rest of his post here.
Thanks Jeremy, Adam and wix.
Reported by walter at 00:55Thursday, 10/27/05 Current updates with:
nine inch nails are pleased to announce saul williams will be making an appearance with them onstage in new orleans and memphis.
I'd make a witty comment, but I'm too busy seething with jealousy. Thanks go to the Everlasting Wixstopper.
Reported by saturnine at 17:35Rykodisc will be reissuing Pretty Hate Machine on November 22nd, 2005, after being out of print for several years.
Rykodisc got back to us very quickly (Much appreciated!) with some info some people will no doubt be asking for...
Rykodisc licensed 'Pretty Hate Machine' from Prudential, the financial institution that foreclosed on certain TVT catalog assets. (i.e. they did not 'win the auction,' as it were.)
The version of PHM being released in the U.S. on Nov 22 is essentially the same as the original TVT release with a few packaging changes which were approved by Trent and his manager.
And I wasn't going to post this, because I usually know better, but hey, why not -- '[Rykodisk is] very interested in releasing a surround sound version, perhaps with bonus tracks, remixes, and deluxe packaging. We can't guarantee this will happen, but stay tuned...'
Reported by leviathant at 13:55
Rex's remixes for Soulwax, Prodigy and The Knife are absolutely mind-blowing, and very much in the vein of the DFA and Richard X - whom, as you might recall, did some excellent work on "Only" and "The Hand That Feeds".
Other names being thrown around are Vitalic and Terence Fixmer...
Reported by thematiques at 02:53
"This story has already been debunked on Echoing the Sound about a month ago, where someone contacted Mark Romanek himself about it, and Mark mentioned he is not doing the video.
We were first made aware of this news from an entry on Wikipedia, which eventually cited the source that thematiques linked here. Upon further investigation (along with very strong posts on the topic by trent himself in February) the whole thing turned out to be an unfounded rumor.
In addition, Trent Reznor posted on the Spiral message board that "Mark is NOT doing the video for "every day...""
Reported by thematiques at 02:41Tuesday, 10/25/05
I'm 48. My musical tastes have been charitably described as eclectic. But I'm ready to shout it from the rafters of TD Waterhouse Centre when Reznor sings, "You get me closer to God."
Worlds Collide: Why I Sing Trent Reznor's Praises by the Orlando Sentinel's Michael Murphy is a (slightly gushing) tribute to Reznor and his music, and surprisingly enough, a good read to boot.
Thanks to broken1 over at ETS for this one.
Reported by saturnine at 16:47Monday, 10/24/05 nin.com. Tickets will be refunded, and Tuesday's show in Orlando will still go on.
Reported by drunkpoet at 20:24auctioning off a bunch of fucked up guitars as their contribution to raising funds for Hurricane Katrina relief/rebuilding efforts (at the moment there is only one guitar up, but we're presuming that more will become available in the future). Every guitar is signed by all the band members (including Jeordie!) and will have information as to when and where they were smashed to manageable hang-on-the-wall pieces. Current bids stand at $1525, with 4 days left to bid.
Thanks go to lynnifer, Kile and others.
Reported by saturnine at 04:59Sunday, 10/23/05
The Ft. Lauderdale show has actually been postponed, not cancelled. Information on the new date will be announced very soon.
Reported by meathead at 12:39Saturday, 10/22/05
What will Trent Reznor do when Nine Inch Nails U.S. tour ends on November 20th? "I might play theaters by myself, with the piano and some electronics," Reznor reveals to the smoking section. "Just try something that's the antithesis of the shows we're doing now." No way! "This arena tour is spectacle, it's bombast," he continues. "But as a musician it's not like an improvisational situation - primarily, we stick to the script. I have a newfound confidence, a combination of being sober, getting older and being a little more comfortable in my own skin, and I wouldn't mind creating a new environment where the sound is more spontaneous." Reznor also adds that being lucid 24/7 has fired up his songwriting - he hopes to drop a new NIN album in 2006.
Reported by drunkpoet at 11:09website. Thanks to visage13 for writing in.
Reported by drunkpoet at 10:59Friday, 10/21/05 Office Depot Center (Bank Atlantic Center?) website where it is reported that Monday's Nine Inch Nails concert at BankAtlantic Center is still scheduled to take place. Stay tuned for more information.
As we hear more, we'll post it. Good luck to everyone in the path of this latest hurricane.
Reported by leviathant at 18:01Friday, 10/21/05 New Times Broward-Palm Beach has a new interview with Trent online, with a few interesting quotes we haven't seen before. Thanks to bat for writing in.
Reported by drunkpoet at 22:38
Rest assured, once we hear something, we'll be posting it here. Until then, keep your fingers crossed, Floridians.
Trent's updated nin.com to pass on that the band is "On our way to Jacksonville. We are playing Florida until we are told otherwise."
Reported by leviathant at 07:48Wednesday, 10/19/05 People's Choice Award came through again, with DepecheMode.tv taking the #1 spot (even though they have a hell of a lot less traffic than we do) We came in eighth place, behind fan sites for U2 (interference.com) and Madonna (madonnalicious.com). Maybe if I kept the banner pink and didn't poke fun at Madonnalicious...
Congratulations to everyone who placed!

Reported by leviathant at 11:03Monday, 10/17/05 Current updates with news that NIN have been added to the line up for the Memphis side of the Voodoo festival (so fret ye not all that hold tickets!) at the end of the month.
Stephan Rehage, organizer of the New Orleans Voodoo Music Festival, has been working his ass off getting this event together, and asked if we could help out by playing in Memphis as well. I checked the schedule and routing and... well, why not? We're confident this will add to the amount of money we can put directly into New Orleans and that's all the reason I needed to agree.
So... if you didn't get tickets ahead of time for the New Orleans event, you can now buy tickets for this. More details / specifics to come. Please help out with this if you can.
Thanks to everyone who sent this news in.
Reported by saturnine at 06:12Sunday, 10/16/05 nin.com in the current section of the page. Thanks Doug, Frank, Numina, Dorepoll, Cooper, blursx, Vince, and Petra.

Reported by leviathant at 15:27Jouni Lahtinen wrote to us at the end of last month about Clint Mansell doing the soundtrack to the Doom movie, and remixing You Know What You Are for the film. Unfortunately, I (and everyone else who helps on this page) missed the news as it came in amongst NIN's myspace account going down, and Jerome Dillon going to the hospital.
Thankfully, Jouni persisted, and three weeks later I'm posting the news that the original score to Doom will feature a remix of You Know What You Are by Clint Mansell, who is scoring the film. Clint's from Pop Will Eat Itself, and his most well-known film score to date is that which he did for Requiem for a Dream.
The soundtrack comes out November 8th. As we get more information, we'll let you know.
Reported by leviathant at 15:19Thursday, 10/13/05 new picture from Tuesday night's concert up on nin.com. Boy, that's a lot of people.
Thanks to the hordes that sent this news in.

The Hand That Feeds, and Only.
This is all because of those new iPods that play video now, of course. The videos are $1.99 a piece, and you'll need iTunes version 6 to download them.
Thanks again to the swarm of emails about this news. There are too many names to name -- this is what I get for waiting all day to update.
Reported by leviathant at 22:44
This from an email sent out to Ticketmaster customers who bought tickets to the Voodoo Festival, Memphis edition -- which is still happening on October 30th.
"While tickets will not be sold to the general public for the event in New Orleans, Voodoo Music Experience is offering previous ticket holders the opportunity to repurchase tickets (2 ticket limit) for $60 per ticket which will allow entry to the New Orleans event on Saturday. To purchase these tickets, you must use Ticketmaster confirmation number from your previous order and click [on the private NOLA event page link in the email]."
There's more information at the official voodoo music festival website. Thanks for all the emails about this event!
Reported by leviathant at 21:53new search feature I recently implemented, and noticed a number of queries for Not So Pretty Now, the assumed name of a song that's been played on early dates of the current North American tour. It occurred to me that somehow we missed posting about this.
According to the setlist of the ill-fated 9/16 San Diego show, the track is called Not So Pretty Now, and once the setlist stats at The Art of Self Destruction go back online, I'll use it to tell you how many times it's been played this tour. It wasn't many.
Not long after it was played, 13 pages of discussion cropped up at ETS, including this attempt at transcribing the lyrics. And that's about the extent of what we know! Sorry for taking so long in reporting a new NIN song to you.
Reported by leviathant at 14:41Tuesday, 10/11/05 Kiss Rocks' site. Have a listen. Thanks Chuck!!!
Reported by whitechapelmolly at 21:39DMA People's Choice Award is looming, with the awards ceremony taking place on the 18th.
If we do somehow take the #1 spot, I fully intend to send our UK personality and workhorse, Saturnine, and Kleptonin, who designed the amazing Kleptonin secret NIN Hotline skin, to represent the site. The fashion possibilities are unfathomable.
I know I've been bugging you repeatedly this time around, but please vote for The NIN Hotline this year. I haven't actually bugged you for this in the past six years that we've been online, and this is probably the only time I'm concentrating the effort.

It's a weird blend of obviously new kids who weren't there because they couldn't have physically been there before and people getting up to my own age.
Detroit Free Press conducted a new interview with Reznor in which he discusses touring, Jerome being ill and NOLA after Hurricane Katrina.
Other bits and pieces of Reznor media include:
- Reznor in the Raw by Mike Osegueda of the Fresno Bee.
- Parts One, Two, Three and Four of an audio interview conducted by x96.com
- A Hollywood Bowl review by Chris Daines.
Thanks sslbret, scissure, Robert and Rick H.
Reported by saturnine at 17:14his blog and save me the trouble of finding out the name of the new drummer: Alex Carapetis. The show was all the more impressive considering Alex had apparently only been through the setlist once in a midnight rehearsal the night before.
Thanks go out to the horde of people who wrote in about this stuff, though I'm too drunk, lazy, and tired to thank anyone besides the incomparable Missmacbeth individually.
Happy now, Leviapoopiepants?

Reported by leviathant at 15:09Thursday, 10/06/05 official message board explaining in detail his recent health problems:
"subsequently, the decision was made to hire replacement drummers (for this leg) to allow me enough time to adjust to medication and to also spend time pursuing my true passion...gardening."
Thank you to everyone for taking the time to email us!
Reported by anita at 20:33Wednesday, 10/05/05 folks returning from the Salt Lake City concert and a new picture on nin.com, Josh Freese will be filling in for Jerome for the next month of touring until the mystery replacement drummer gets on board.
Everyone say "oooOOooo" now.
Thanks to everyone (and especially MYCAH DEAN MATTOX) for emailing us about this.
Thanks to abearatemyparents and pacmanhat for the additional news of the mystery replacement drummer, which was mentioned just now during an interview with Trent for St Louis radio station KPNT.

The first step is measuring demand -- you can get a look at the shirt design by visiting this reservation page. Please, only fill out the reservation page if you are certain you'll be buying a shirt in the next month or two.
In fact, that reservation form pretty much says it all, so I won't bother repeating myself. If you have any comments or questions, just email me and let me know what you think.
Reported by leviathant at 11:20Monday, 10/03/05 Spin is reporting that drummer Jerome Dillon will be sitting out the rest of the fall NIN tour. No word on a replacement yet, but presumably it would be Josh Freese, who was set to fill in at Saturday's Hollywood Bowl show until Jerome returned at the last minute.
Thanks for the heads up, Elaine and Steve.
Reported by meathead at 12:34Salt Lake City Weekly features a point-counterpoint on Nine Inch Nails and Trent Reznor. Two writers at the paper were given the assignment and were not allowed to see each other's article until they were effectively published.
Rebecca Vernon's opinion piece speaks well of the music without being fanatical, whereas Ben Fulton's opinion is that the whole NIN thing is over-rated. Of course, Ben also thinks that Trent's still wearing fishnets, and makes it pretty clear that he wasn't familiar with his assignment and had to beef up on the background pretty quickly. Anyway, have a read.
We've been encouraged by staff at the Weekly to ask you to send your comments to [email protected] - so if you read through both articles and feel you have something civil, thought-out and constructive to say, there's the email address.
Nine Inch Nails play Salt Lake City tomorrow.

The Article Archive now has a copy of the past posts at nin.com/tr, since they are not archived there.
Now on your page settings, you can tick off a checkbox for "Updates from Trent" and they will show up in your sidebar. We will update that as soon as nin.com/tr updates, but it will only display the most recent post.
Thanks for everyone who's been emailing us with the updates, but this should take care of all that, and you can stop emailing now.
By the way, time's ticking away, don't forget to vote for us at the Online Music Awards. There are two weeks of voting left, and given all the stuff we have here, there's no reason we shouldn't cream the competition.

Reported by Greg at 09:51Sunday, 10/02/05 nin.com features the entire band, including Jerome Dillon, at what seems to be the Hollywood Bowl. One may suppose this means that Jerome will appear for this gig, and there is no replacement drummer. Only time will tell...
Thanks to everyone who sent this info in to us. Much appreciation!
