« [Call_and_Response_#18: Your_Verdict_on_Year_Zero] | Main | [Which_Avril_Is_Hotter] »



Well folks, it's come to this.

Maybe it's the fact that the ARG died so abruptly, without fully delivering on the immense promise it held, that had has all so excited. Maybe it's the fact that "Year Zero" didn't really come through on the whole "makes you wanna fuck" vibe we were hoping for. Maybe we're just older, and tireder this time around -- and maybe Trent is too.

Either way, pickins is slim when it comes to talking about Herr Reznor these days, and here at WTC, it's pretty much boresville. Earlier today, the topic of TEH SEXXIEST EVAR -- Ms. Avril Lavigne -- came up, a GODDESS who Maise will not acknowledge the hotness of because Maise is bitter and jealous. Between the two, we found this former home of scathing sarcasm and hopefully funny insight turned into a turgid turd of denial and lethargy.

So that's it folks. Until Maise owns up to Avril's hotness (or until Trent does something fucking interesting, which won't be for another like 10 months, if we're lucky), there is now an EMBARGO ON ALL THINGS TRENT at WTC. Any comments about Trent Reznor will get you banned.

This may also be referred to as The Boredom Embargo.

I hope you're happy Maise. Nice work.

Praise Avril!

I don't care how long I have to stare at that weedy bitch, you're never going to get me to admit that 1+1 = 3.

Lift the [Old Man Who Needs To Date Younger Women] embargo or shit is going to get ugly.

Posted by: maise | Jun 13, 2007 5:48:26 PM

READERS, RISE UP! We don't have to take this shit! Art is Resistance!!!!

Posted by: maise | Jun 13, 2007 5:51:17 PM

Avril is no more a "sell-out" than [Old Man Who Needs To Date Younger Women], and is more talented than any girl on this site. She can skate, sing, play an instrument... she is succssesful, beautiful etc.

What do the rest of you have except JEALOUSY???

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 5:55:19 PM

Hey Gabe, want to know a secret?

Heres a good one:


Posted by: Hannah | Jun 13, 2007 5:55:35 PM

There will be no rising up. The readership will bow their heads like bitches to Kommandant GABRIEL!

Art is not Resistance. It is a weak-ly planned ARG.

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 5:57:18 PM

Never give in, Maise! Keep on fighting! I support you!

And Gabriel, you suck. I hate you. This was completley uncalled for and makes you (and this website) look ridiculous.

Hannah -

The only secret around here is chicks not respecting one of their own who has made it in the biz.

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 5:58:44 PM

It's about time the dudes started to clean up the riff raff around here!

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 6:02:34 PM

Why should I resect someone who makes music that sounds (to me anyway) annoying and repetive and then poses in "hott punk rawk" school-girl costumes so that weirdos like Gabriel can jerk off?

Let's change the URL while we're at it, huh?


On Avril Lavigne, Her Alleged Hotness, and How It Makes Up for Her Inability to Create Pleasing Music

Posted by: maise | Jun 13, 2007 6:05:45 PM

Because she is more successful and talented than you.

Or can you skate, play guitar well and write good pop songs? Along with being stunningly hot?

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 6:06:37 PM

She sells record so her music can't be ALL bad, right?

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 6:07:19 PM

You don't have to do anything re: Avril Rubicon -- that's strictly between Maise and I.

The banning of Trent discussion is more of a challenge -- given how stale the man's own output has become, I dare all of us, and our readers, to take on some things that are a little more interesting than how No It Is Good, Really! "Year Zero" is, or how funny the end of the "Deep" video is.

The only question that remains... can everyone do it?

Posted by: Gabriel | Jun 13, 2007 6:07:45 PM

SHIT... I thought it was JUST about how HOTT AVRIL IS!

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 6:10:06 PM

Well, we used to do this sort of thing, like pick a book and discuss it, but that didn't please you either.

Because, in the end, my friend, not even Avril Lavigne and all of her orifices could keep you happy for an extended period of time. Nothing can.

Posted by: maise | Jun 13, 2007 6:11:17 PM

Well, all these motherfuckers know deep down she is pretty fucking hot...

Oh no... A SIXTH time???? I'm gonna start to chafe.

Posted by: Gabriel | Jun 13, 2007 6:11:44 PM

And I seriously can't believe that of all the women out there to worship, you guys pick a little Barbie doll only slightly less fake than the likes of Jessica Simpson.

Posted by: maise | Jun 13, 2007 6:12:28 PM

Should we start a list of Women That You Hate Because You're Jealous Of Their Alluring Sexuality?

Posted by: Gabriel | Jun 13, 2007 6:13:27 PM

See - that's where I have an issue. Avril CAN sing, CAN play an instrument -- what's the issue?

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 6:13:52 PM

I don't hate her because she makes your semen spill into your hot little hand. I hate her because she is MEDIOCRE--both in terms of beauty and talent.

Posted by: maise | Jun 13, 2007 6:14:42 PM

And Jessica Simpson is HOT or did you not see her in a bikini in THE DUKES OF HAZZARD?

Posted by: Angelman | Jun 13, 2007 6:14:45 PM

Avril is also attractive, therefore Maise must HATE her.

She could also have a doctorate in biophysics and cure cancer, she would still suck in Maise's eyes because Maise has low self-esteem.
