Dear Trent,

I'm flying in the face of Gabriel's bullshit embargo, because, apparently, I am the Paris Hilton of the NINternet, and moreover, this is my website and if I want to send a missive of LOVE to you, dear Sparklepants, my veritable raison d'etre, I fucking well will. I feel like it's time I told you that I love you with the same pure fire, the same undying and eternal flame with which I have loved you since forever.

Dearest Trent! Nothing has changed. My love is true.

I know that with the whole Avril thing that's going on here, the embargo, and all the total bullshit that never seems to stop being manufactured around this website, coupled with our relative silence lately on the topic of your every move and breath -- or even your latest recording -- that maybe I don't love you like I used to. It might seem like that, but, in point of fact, that is absolutely false.

Here's what's true, baby: I haven't been that big into the whole ARG thing. I know, KILL ME! But, I've never been much of a video game/sci-fi fan. I'm a snob, quite frankly, and speaking as a girl who, at one time, read literary theory for a hobby, I have to tell you that it is my somewhat professional opinion that there are, relatively speaking, only but a very few examples of that genre that are worth more than the paper they are printed on, and the narrative contents of this particular example of it have only resisted that generality insofar as they are not actually printed on paper... but that's neither here nor there, in the end.

My sweet love, I know you're all about looking forward into the future of your work, but I'm not sure you've brought your vision to it's full flower in this episode. The truth is it's left me with not so much to say, really. I like your record, of course, because it's yours, and I like you. I mean, I really like you. I like what you are in your bones, and I like what it means that you do it. I like everything about the unfolding process that is your pilgrimage in the land of your work, and when you send us your postcards from that land, I recieve them eagerly, and gobble them hungrily. They have never disappointed me, and nothing about them -- nothing whatsoever -- disappoints me now, because more than anything, it's the process that thrills me.

I am patient, dear Trent, and I await the next communique from your empire as eagerly as ever before. Journey on, my darling, I will always be here, my romantic heart throbbing your sweet name with such ceaseless insistence that it will be as if Avril Levigne and Gabriel Miller NEVER EXISTED.

D, you have seriously saved the day by helping the site move away from all that Avril Lavigne dreck.

Oh, Dierdre! How I love you and have missed you!

And dear readers, how sorry I am that I got caught up in all the Avril nonsense. I must admit it was difficult for me to see Gabe (to whom I have devoted a lot of time and energy) swoon over a younger, thinner, richer, more successful and, yes, hotter woman whose music makes me want to plunge shards of glass into my eardrums. (I mean, chastening aside, "Girlfriend" is the worst fucking thing I have EVER heard.) But it's time for me to face up to the truth. I must let Gabe, as Fleetwood Mac says, go his own way. And I must move on, alone and with an empty heart.

An empty heart that I once again devote to Trent Reznor.

A.ngelman! Dude you can now officially quit your day job! Heavy Metal Disability! I have to say I'm a little jealous but maybe this will help pave the way to me getting a NIN disability check. I mean I traveled to another country for them! Come on Uncle Sam, pay up.

Posted by: I.ris | Jun 20, 2007 10:02:12 AM

Uh, I'd classify listening to too much heavy metal as something, but not a disability. Unless you could developmental disabilities.

I guess it's true; metal health will drive you mad. God those guys in Quiet Riot were really ahead of their time.

you make me want to vomit blood on your corpse bitch

Posted by: you suck | Jun 20, 2007 11:12:47 AM

Hi there, hater! Welcome! We've missed you!

Meanwhile, I am a little confused by your hate here.

Do you mean that you want to "vomit blood on your corpse, bitch," referring to Dierdre (or another) or do you mean that you want to vomit blood on your "corpse bitch," which I suppose would refer to me?

Posted by: maise | Jun 20, 2007 11:20:43 AM

Ghost Dog, quit trying to hog all the credit.

I believe I am the one upon whose corpse the hater wants to vomit blood.

Get in line.

Posted by: JR | Jun 20, 2007 11:45:07 AM

Well, don't get too excited. I checked the IP, and it's not G.abriel.

Posted by: maise | Jun 20, 2007 11:58:07 AM

I wasn't "getting excited"; I was "being realistic".

Posted by: JR | Jun 20, 2007 1:02:27 PM

Why isn't this damn site letting me post?

Posted by: nubie | Jun 20, 2007 7:28:50 PM

Ok, that was weird. It let me post this time. Here is the post I tried to post before:

Posted by: nubie | Jun 20, 2007 7:33:56 PM

Obviously, this stupid program is only letting me post one sentence at a time.

Posted by: nubie | Jun 20, 2007 7:38:35 PM

When did Gabrie.l and Angelma.n start to become what they supposedly hate? If I recall, this site used to be a safe haven from exactly that type of behavior on ETS. Their actions are just a textbook example of censorship, which I find utterly reprehensible. It's shit like this that starts us all down that dusty, slippery slope. Personally, I've enjoyed reading the previous posts. However, if this site is going to avalanche into another ETS forum, I don't think I will come back. They should be ashamed, but they probably don't have any.

Posted by: nubie | Jun 20, 2007 7:40:37 PM

If I may be so bold, the last way this site should be taken, nubie, is literally. It's really not EETS, even if it appears to be...dig a little deeper.

Posted by: JR | Jun 20, 2007 9:56:09 PM

Also, nubie? Both G.abriel and A.ngelman are banned, so as far as I'm concerned, censorship is over.

Posted by: maise | Jun 21, 2007 7:23:10 AM

Maise, I INSIST that both of them be UN-banned THIS MINUTE.

Posted by: Dierdre | Jun 21, 2007 8:14:01 AM

Well, you'll have to take that up with Generalissimo G.abriel who managed to ban both A.ngelman AND his own dumb ass. I had nothing to do with banning anyone.

Posted by: maise | Jun 21, 2007 8:19:35 AM

If he didn't already ruin(er) my favoritte band, NIN, enough... G.abriel has ruined the last Harry Potter book too...!

Check this article (and not the net-handle of the culprit):


Posted by: A.ngelman | Jun 21, 2007 4:16:09 PM

I meant "note the net-handle..."

My final all-time post. Just needed to out Gabe.

Posted by: . | Jun 21, 2007 4:32:48 PM

Stop selling yourself short. You are hot! I'd let you sniff my crotch any day.

Posted by: Lavender | Jun 21, 2007 9:59:34 PM

and we're back. huzzah! thanks dierdre!

Posted by: guru shabd | Jun 22, 2007 5:38:42 AM

Awwww, thanks, Lavender! Um, I think.
