[Inside_Dierdre: Nightmares!]

So, I don't know how many of all y'all read Buddyhead's gossip page, but the latest post, now quite old really, features this alarming description of Sparklepants's behavior at this year's Coachella as one of the so-called "highlights":

...Watching Trent Reznor completely lose his mind while Madonna played, pinch his own nipples, pull his shirt off, and wave it in a circle around his head when she broke into “Ray of Light”.

Now, I read that a long time ago, and I don't know if it's just the image of Trent, unleashing the awesome destructive power of his half-nakedness with such reckless abandon -- in public, no less, where it might be seen by some government agent, who might try to harness it and use it for evil -- or the "pinching his own nipples" thing -- which immediately calls to mind the image of Austin Powers's nemesis Fat Bastard eating chicken in bed with Felicity Shagwell -- or, if it's just the fact that we're talking about MADONNA here, who, while she was once a total fucking genius with her black Jesus, buring crosses, stigmata, and fabulous bouncy tits, now looks like a piece of beef jerky in a cheesey disco costume, and is officially all about working the bullshit retread as hard as she possibly can, but I am DISTURBED.

Seriously! Just look at the convoluted sentence I just wrote!! I don't even know if I totally fucked off the grammaticalization! And all these exclamation points!!!! GET READY FOR A LOT OF CAPS LOCK! Also, know that I am typing drunk.

Now, I know Buddyhead is all about the sarcasm and irony, and fuck them for that, even if they are hilariously obssessed with cock and epithets like "asspro." I can never get over the feeling that if Buddyhead co-founder Aaron North weren't actually trying to look all fierce, night after night, as Nine Inch Nails's guitar player du jour, Trent would be exactly the guy Buddyhead would be mocking ceaselessly, for his dead fucking serious aspirations, inexorable earnestness, and overwrought melodrama. Don't get me wrong: those fine qualities are EXACTLY WHY I LOVE TRENT SO MUCH I COULD PUKE, but it's not the kind of thing that generally gets a pass from hip, scenester bitches like the Buddyhead boys.


Still, I can't help wondering: ARE THESE BITCHES FOR REAL? I can't actually imagine that our Trent really and truly got the twins out and did a striptease, but could it be that notre amour REALLY thinks Madonna is hot? Does he really like "Ray of Light"? Because fuck, man, it's been downhill for Madonna since "Express Yourself", hasn't it? All I'm saying to you, my dear readers, is this: for some reason, this is an image that just makes me shudder. It keeps me up at night and haunts my nightmares, and I don't even know why.

Maybe it's just that they said "nipples", and "Trent Reznor" in the same sentence, and that makes my brain go all haywire?

Yeah. Maybe.

Come back to the fu

You and Trent
could share so much.
Like a love of Jesus-y

Posted by: maise | Jun 20, 2006 10:13:23 PM

BURNING crosses, Dierdre. Jesus.

This post touches upon an important issue, and it's this: Trent is bitchy and sarcastic, and so are the kids he's been hanging out with, lately. Ironic appreciation is usually just the thin disguise of a true but resented love -- perhaps one that makes the lover feel all "gay" -- in my opinion. I don't know if Trent's nipples got all hard over Madonna, but I will say this: if he thinks Madonna is hot, at least she's his age, already.

Brass Tacks Regarding Trent & Gabriel
a Haiku Tryptich by Dierdre

I won't beat around
the bush: I would be only
too glad to fuck Trent.

Gabriel, you have
long stared into the abyss
of your own desire

And seen nothing but
impotent hate. Give it up,
and reclaim your soul.

Posted by: Dierdre | Jun 21, 2006 12:46:13 AM

I'm glad
you both
want to fuck Trent
we really couldn't have guessed
before now

i used to commiserate
with trank trent and trunk
and wondered who i was
in this world of piss

but then i admitted the truth
that i wasn't the little boy looking for a sense of self
to save and to serve
but was simply me

when i didn't need
the reznorpsyche
to make myself whole
i stopped listening

though the 'fuck you like an animal' song
is still cool

and you must confess
like bottled note from shore
saul williams' poe

Every word you say,
Oh bitchy, desperate man-
child, confirms my ass --
erstion concerning the
tortured over
of your

Some of us, who are un-
ashamed of our natural desires,
and who speak them freely, never
had need of the gayness
you call "Reznorpsyche"
leaves us free to love
despite this Madonna thing,

or indeed,


We who are whole in the knowl
edge that Trent is OTHER
salute him,
offer him The Cup of Chains.

Well, I don't
know about all
this saluting and
Cup of Chains.
It makes
feel kinda "Medieval Times"
or Renaissance Faire.

Steven: Can I get a knife or fork?

Wench: There were no utensils in medieval times, hence there are no utensils AT Medieval Times. Would you like a refill on that Pepsi?

Steven: There were no utensils but there was Pepsi?

Wench: Dude, I got a lot of tables.

Yeah, I've got nothing to add.

Posted by: Iris | Jun 21, 2006 10:20:21 AM

Ok, so maybe I
went too

Posted by: maise | Jun 21, 2006 11:31:13 AM

I think this quote from Buddyhead simply means Trent was mocking fags for liking Madonna.

'cuz queers rip off their shirts and pinch their nipples when they hear "Ray of Light".

Posted by: Baal Glyttr | Jun 21, 2006 11:55:44 AM

1. Trent Reznor showing the love for Madonna - no way in hell.

2. You guys duking it out in the style of haiku - made my day.

That is all.

Posted by: Layla | Jun 21, 2006 11:59:04 AM

Baal, I've missed you soooooooooo much!

Posted by: maise | Jun 21, 2006 12:03:23 PM


I too am a little taken-aback to say the least when I hear Trent Reznor and nipples in the same line. I think it is the name. I could hear Sparklepants and nipples and not convulse so much.

Madonna, WTF? Ray of Light, WTDF? (what the double fuck) But then again the whole Courtney Love thing still has me wow-d out.

Keep writing Dierdre
