[With_Questions: Feedback_Edition]

Boy, the Ninternet is a hopping place these days!

As many of you may have already noticed, our good friend in NIN-fannery, the former comedian known as MeatFuck certainly doesn't take well to people pointing out some constructive criticism from time to time. Granted, nobody likes to be told that their game has gone the way of John Malm's career, but that's why us nine inch nails fans are such a great bunch -- we're always ready to help each other out.

Here at Wearing These Chains, for example, we've had many emails from new readers, who found Mr. Meat's work interesting, and decided to give WTC a spin in the old browser. Nothing's more exciting than hearing what your readers think of your work, direct from the source! And so, in the tradition of the previous [With_Questions], here we present a small selection of the incisive commentary we've received!

Your page is 10 times funnier than Meatheads...the best part is that it's supposed to be taken seriously by people...that is what is so fucking funny!!!

Do you realize how uncomfortable the human waste that you call "Wearing
These Chains" would Trent Reznor??? I don't want to speak for him as I don't
fantasize about going to sleep with his penis in my mouth every night like
you do....but I'm guessing if he ACTUALLY was FORCED to read any of your
typed excrement he would vomit all over himself.

Do us real NIN fans a favor and shoot Mimi and Dierdre in the face and then
turn the gun on yourself.

I'll even buy the bullets..what type do you need?

Now this is what I'm talking about! Real discourse -- from fan to Artist. This is what democratization of technology is all about!

Oh, and Daniel -- I prefer .45 caliber slugs. Thanks. :-)

Subject: hahahahahahaha, you are terrible
Oh man, if it weren't for Meathead, I never would have had such a laugh as to see your poetry. I mean, come on, you were doing fairly decent (ok, that's a lie) up until that. And what the fuck is gothemo? I can only assume you dumbasses combined two terrible labels into one ultimately terrible label. That's just wrong.

Well here at WearingTheseChains, Sedar, Gothemo isn't just a label. It's a way of life. It's not about the clothes you wear, the color you dye your hair, or the way you shave your eyebrows. It's about looking at things from not only a singular perspective, but also taking a step back, and viewing your life, and the lives of others, in the context of the inevitable and ultimate darkness that this world holds for each and every one of us. When you feel your heart start to tremble, and your eyes brim with tears for the fallen and forsaken... that's when you're feeling gothemo.

Um, we'd actually linked to MeatFuck's article as of 12:54pm Sep 29, Sean... but don't let that stop you from writing in again in the future!

Eat my ass, pathetic bitch boy. Meathead was right. I enjoy the hell out of Nine Inch Nails' music, but fuck, it's people like you that make me worry about the next NIN show I go to. Go put on your make-up and your fake square-framed glasses and quit clogging the internet.

Fuck you.

-PFC Patrick P.

Private First Class Potts? You fucking RULE.

As I sit here on the eve of my first full-length arena show of the "With Teeth" tour, I can't help but have a warm feeling in my heart for all of my fellow fans that I'm going to see tomorrow. Because we're not just a bunch of folks that like a band at the end of the day.

We're family. And that makes all the difference.


(oh, and Meathead still sucks)

It was really strange clicking on the meathead perspective and seeing a whole update dedicated to wearing these chains.

I laughed, his insults weren't too effective.

Hey you guys are famous now! Holy shit.

Oh gods above. *ROLLS HER EYES*

Posted by: Kim | Sep 30, 2005 12:25:08 PM

OMG, Gabriel.

I'm starting to worry that *you're* losing your touch! Sure, your "You and what army, Meathead?" strategy provided us with a solid day of entertainment, but holy shit, it is more boring than boring at this point.

Please, please, please tell me that you're not going to devote the rest of your days to responding to these people. You are only 30 seconds of their attention before they reach their next online porn destination.

Posted by: maise | Sep 30, 2005 12:33:12 PM

Besides, don't you feel the slightest bit guilty that your cohorts were dragged into this? I mean, I know Deirdre doesn't care, but Mimi was so upset, only every sixth word was in English.

Posted by: maise | Sep 30, 2005 12:45:09 PM

Sigh.. oh, the humanity.

Posted by: Baal Glyttr | Sep 30, 2005 12:53:49 PM

Could we please get back to our regularly-scheduled fangirl drooling and worrying about Jerome's medical condition(s)? The hater overload is giving me a headache.

Posted by: emerald527 | Sep 30, 2005 1:12:01 PM

they just don't get it, do they? No, really. They don't get that a) your brilliantly written, satirical, tongue-in-cheek posts are meant to conjure a smirk and raise an eyebrow; and b) the attention meatfuck's prissy fit is giving WearingTheseChains is astronomical.

congratulations, dierdre and gabe. what the hell ... mimi, too. as an old school reader, words cannot express how proud i am of your success.

as always, nothing but love to the two (er, three) of you.


Posted by: denise | Sep 30, 2005 1:13:51 PM

Merci, denise, for including me. I find it very comforting to be loved by people who matter. Especially since my e-mail is now plein de messages for me to kill myself and to re-enter my mother's womb so that she can use a coathanger (oui quelqu'un m'a ecrit ce bonne message). I am glad to still feel loved here.

Posted by: Mimi | Sep 30, 2005 1:38:04 PM

I love you Mimi!

Posted by: Kim | Sep 30, 2005 1:43:09 PM

Well, I don't know any French, Mimi, but perhaps Alessandro would say something like, "Li dovresti ignorare. Loro sono solamente le parassite sul internet." Except I'm sure he wouldn't say it in pidgin Italian, and I'm sure he wouldn't have to look up every word in a separate book. The point is, you just keep being you. This too shall pass.

I STILL can't believe how tangled up I've become. Time to start the weekend, kids!

Now everyone...get off the computer and GO OUTSIDE! Unless it's raining or some shit.

Posted by: maise | Sep 30, 2005 2:07:31 PM

Okay you guys, happy weekend. Don't let the folks who don't understand you ruin your day.

(and as to any asshole who thinks a living person should have been aborted...karma is a VERY BIG BITCH).

Gab., enjoy the show. Will be strange to hear of another person sitting behind the drums.


Posted by: bex | Sep 30, 2005 2:19:53 PM

I love the way you dicksucking cuntrag fangirls from hell support each other, its like watching a fat man exercise on the running machine while cheering himself up.

Stupid tards, thinking you can reach happiness trough sadness.

Mimi is the worst, imo.

Posted by: retards | Sep 30, 2005 2:29:11 PM

Mr. Tards, I have no idea whatsoever what that meant, but it was AWESOME! Thanks for reading!

Posted by: Gabriel | Sep 30, 2005 2:37:47 PM

Maybe you could play some silly guitar chords while whining (as in singing) my previous post over them to make it the next Lorangerie-something hit!!

Posted by: retards | Sep 30, 2005 3:26:06 PM

Have you learnt how to spell penis, yet?

Posted by: Kim | Sep 30, 2005 3:31:20 PM

I personally think you are just trying a little too hard to be just like Meathead.

Posted by: Rosiline | Sep 30, 2005 9:00:42 PM

OMG. It's so boring. When will it end?

Posted by: Dierdre | Sep 30, 2005 10:11:26 PM

This site is... rather disgusting. It's just a band people.

Posted by: TPh | Sep 30, 2005 10:11:57 PM

Dierdre, I don't know. I'm still waiting for someone to show up and say something moderately intelligent. I guess I have a long wait, eh?

Posted by: Kim | Sep 30, 2005 10:31:59 PM

Uh, yeah, Kim. I think you'll be waiting pretty much FOREVER with this crowd.


I think they'll get bored when they see that it does not phase us that they think we suck. I mean, seriously, I couldn't care less, Gabriel likes it, and it makes Mimi sob in broken English, but she'll get over it. She's stronger than she lets on.

So, in the meantime... as the sand passes through an hourglass, so are the days of our lives.


Posted by: Dierdre | Sep 30, 2005 10:41:05 PM

I'm also waiting to see something "moderately intelligent" on this site. Because "gothemo" people are so intelligent and poetic, etc.

Gabriel is the new Mahler, btw.
