Hi everyone,

Just wanted to report the breaking news I've just received! An excerpt from an email I received from my Right-Hand Woman:

I was up early for my kickboxing class and was listening to Q101, and the DJ (I didn't catch who it was nor did I recognize his voice) was talking about playing "My Violent Heart" and the whole Year Zero thing. And he totally started talking about WTC and specifically mentioned Maise the Ghost Dog. You guys are famous!

As my friend is not normally in the habit of having WTC-related hallucinations, this report is totally credible. You'll note that she didn't elaborate on what exactly was said about us. The DJ could very well have been throwing out the usual terminology--you know, things like "loser," "stalker," "batshit insane"--but I would like to believe that instead he lauded our INHERENT AWESOMENESS and appreciated all the haikus.

So at the risk of looking like a total famewhore, I'd just like to say hello to our Mystery Q101 DJ reader. If you would like an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with my #1 client, GABRIEL MILLER of L'ORANGERIE STANK, I'm sure that can totally be arranged. Just email me at maise@wearingthesechains.com. Oh, and thanks for the on-air plug, even if you were totally deriding us.

Edit: I just found out about your on-air love-fest, Mr. D.J. Thank you for the love; we know we spin you right round, baby, like a record, right round, and would love to hear from you. If you dare, that is.

Feel my hate,

Gabriel Miller

That's fucking cool.

I wish I got that radio station.

I wish I had caught the DJ's name, but I was half asleep (shit, it was 6 am on a Saturday). But I certainly bolted upright when I heard the WTC shout out. And he totally lauded your inherent awesomeness.

Trent, what is with leaving new songs in bathrooms? Have you been in concert hall bathrooms lately? Skeevy! Unhygenic! And I've only ever been in the women's rooms. I can't imagine the horror of the men's.

I bet he puts his dutiful minion, Aaron, up to it.. Makes him sneak into the stalls before the venue's doors open. No wonder he gets violent on stage.

Do you really think anyone has to force Aaron to cruise?

Posted by: | Feb 20, 2007 12:15:24 PM

Dudes, why do we give FUCK ONE about Aaron? Must I repeat the mantra that Nine Inch Nails IS Trent Reznor?

That said, I'm sure these wouldn't be the first "leaks" Aaron has planted in a men's room.

Posted by: Dierdre | Feb 20, 2007 12:44:26 PM

Oh, snap.

Posted by: | Feb 20, 2007 1:53:18 PM

Aaron looks a bit like a creepy pervert who went to my school.

I know it's not Aaron's fault, but whenever I see him I hear this raspy, weedy voice in the back of my head say "Did I tell you that you have nice skin?".

Posted by: RainbowVomit | Feb 20, 2007 2:13:34 PM

Aaron makes my heart burn.

Posted by: Hannah | Feb 20, 2007 4:28:09 PM

Ha! That greasy bastard gives me heartburn.

"Survivalism" live in Barcelona

"Steal it in a couple weeks"? Not if you keep "leaking" tracks. But me, I'm not complaining (har!).

Posted by: emerald527 | Feb 20, 2007 6:55:39 PM

OMG! Em I love you, I Love You, I LOVE YOU!

The new song sounds awesome live! And I like the stage setup they've got with the lights hanging down. Makes it seem military bunker-ish.

Posted by: Iris | Feb 20, 2007 8:44:10 PM

"Survivalism" live reminds me a little of "Gave Up," and I mean that as a high compliment.

I'm so wearing my dad's Army fatigue jacket when next I see them live. It just... works somehow.

Posted by: emerald527 | Feb 21, 2007 10:45:50 AM

It works. Just like Aaron. He works it.

Posted by: Hannah | Feb 21, 2007 12:53:59 PM

Hannah, we get it, you are coming out in favor of Aaron. Here's the thing: no one cares about Aaron, and no one cares who you think works it. Quit beating your dead horse, because... YAWN.

Oh, hi everyone else! I just wanted to say that I am really liking "Me, I'm not".

Should I kill her hopes and dreams by telling her what the red hanky means?

Posted by: emerald527 | Feb 22, 2007 4:15:46 PM

I don't know if it would exactly dash her hopes and dreams considering "she" is some pathetic 55 year old balding, pot bellied dude posing as a 14 year old girl to get his rocks off. But somehow Gabriel isn't seeing through this and still wants to tap that. Let me just say for the record "EWW".

Posted by: Iris | Feb 22, 2007 4:25:15 PM

Aaron likes to be fisted.

Posted by: Hannah | Feb 23, 2007 1:09:03 PM

New theory...Hannah IS Aaron.

Posted by: maise | Feb 23, 2007 1:39:10 PM

I am...
a little scared:
