Noooooooo !!!

2.16.09: A note from Trent and a wave goodbye

Towards the beginning of my career in Nine Inch Nails, our biggest break came in the form of an invitation to perform a series of shows with Jane's Addiction. These performances essentially created and defined the term "alternative" rock in the US, created an ongoing festival franchise that is still thriving (Lollapalooza), set the stage for Nirvana to shift popular taste a few months later, and were really fucking FUN to play and attend - truly the best times I've had. The shows were epic. So epic, they propelled NIN to the "next level" (whatever that means), but caused Jane's to implode. The band broke up at the end of that tour.

Fast forward to the present. Corporate rock STILL sucks. A friend tells me they saw the original Jane's lineup play a tiny show in LA that was unbelievable. I break out my Jane's records and am amazed by how vital they sound. These guys were the real deal and in this current climate mostly dominated by poseurs and pussies it was refreshing to hear something that sounded dangerous, volatile, beautiful and SINCERE.

Emails were sent, phone calls were made, dinner was arranged, ideas were discussed and the next thing I know we're in the studio experimenting. We laugh, we get to know each other, we cry, we yell, we almost quit, we record LOTS of guitar solos, we discuss, we actually begin to all communicate, we yell some more, we become FRIENDS, we laugh again and we do some great things. I get to see first hand why they broke up all those years ago but I also get the chance to see four distinct personalities that become an INCREDIBLE band when they're in the same room.

In NIN world, 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of our first releases. I've been thinking for some time now it's time to make NIN disappear for a while. Last year's "Lights in the Sky" tour was something I'm quite proud of and seems like the culmination of what I could pull off in terms of an elaborate production. It was also quite difficult to pull off technically and physically night after night and left us all a bit dazed. After some thought, we decided to book a last run of shows across the globe this year. The approach to these shows is quite different from last year - much more raw, spontaneous and less scripted. Fun for us and a different way for you to see us and wave goodbye. I reached out to Jane's to see if they'd want to join us across the US and we all felt it could be a great thing. Will it work? Will it resonate in the marketplace? Who knows. Are there big record label marketing dollars to convince you to attend? Nope. Does it feel right to us and does it seem like it will be fun for us and you? Yes it does. Look for tour dates soon and I hope to see you out there.

Coldplay makes their return to Southern Cali...I'd love to go see them again but from what I hear the tickets will start out at about $97 dollars EACH! Then move down to $75 and finally $40.

What happened to Coldplay and their management...really...

When they first played out here I saw them for $10 bucks at I think the Troubadour...They are an AWESOME band but in these times who can really pay that much money for a ticket...I'm sure Birdman can but what about everyone else?

Curb Alert Piece of Lasagna (IE)
Reply to: [?]
Date: 2009-02-10, 7:54PM PST

I have a leftover piece of lasagna and some home fried taters for free.

The lasagna is 4 layers thick with a small bite off one corner.

No i'm not stupid, the taters weren't served with the lasagna, they are leftover from breakfast. The taters are brown in color, most are in grat shape, some have pepper on them.

These things won't last, hurry up and get em, they're on the curb

Only in Fontana

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released photos taken from their evidence room of several ceramic lawn donkeys (see below) seized during a drug raid in Fontana on Tuesday evening. Authorities found 200 donkeys each containing several kilograms of marijuana.

The bust resulted in 15 arrests and the discovery of 1,800 pounds of marijuana.

Best News Story for 2009!!

I found the best news story for 2009 already...check it out

Fri Jan 23, 6:07 pm ET

LAGOS (Reuters) - Police in Nigeria are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery.

Vigilantes took the black and white beast to the police saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after trying to steal a Mazda 323.

"The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed told Reuters by telephone.

"We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody. We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat," he said.

Belief in witchcraft is widespread in parts of Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation. Residents came to the police station to see the goat, photographed in one national newspaper on its knees next to a pile of straw.
