From Ms. Day Cabuhat:
NINE REASONS WHY NINE INCH NAILS RULES
You've heard the news: Nine Inch Nails is performing in Manila this August 5.
Perhaps you've even seen a few die-hard fans scampering for tickets, or heard the buzz surrounding Splintr, the local concert promoter. If you're unfamiliar with the crazy world of NIN, here are nine reasons why the band matters, and why their upcoming concert will be the music event of the year.
1. The NIN fan community is a spectacle in itself.
Within forums such as echoingthesound. org you will find obsessive-compulsiv e fans tracking down every obscure variant of every NIN album and arguing about important matters such as band members' hairstyle. Likewise, do a Google search on `The Meathead Perspective' for a humorous take on the NIN universe. To say these fans are obsessed would be a severe understatement.
2. Ten years from now, you can still wear your NIN shirt and not feel ridiculous, regardless of music trends at that time.
Trust us on this. We have seen the future. Honest.
3. The music, of course.
NIN mastermind Trent Reznor is the only permanent member of the band, playing most instruments in the studio himself. Usually tagged as `industrial rock,' NIN's songs defy labels. One moment harsh and abrasive (Broken) the next, moody and contemplative (Still, Ghosts I-IV), NIN sounds like all your favorite records playing at once.
4. NIN is truly independent.
Trent is doing it on his own - no record label, no corporate backing. Along with artists such as Radiohead, NIN is paving the way for more bands to pursue radical distribution methods outside the traditional record industry. NIN also set the groundwork for local independent music channels such as Splintr to take root.
5. You can get a free NIN album like, right now.
Go to theslip.nin. com to download The Slip for free. Don't lump this with cheap peer-to-peer downloads. Here you'll be given a variety of file options – from high-quality mp3 to lossless formats, and you'll even get a swag of digital artwork. Did we say this was all free?
6. Trent Reznor is a total sweetheart.
Girls, don't let song titles such as Mr. Self-Destruct and The Wretched fool you; Trent is a gentleman, as proven by the way he stood up for his fiancée Mariqueen Maandig, who is of Filipino descent. Mariqueen received some hate mail from rabid fans who wanted Reznor to stay SAD (Single And Depressed). After telling-off the haters, Trent went back to "spending as much time as possible with the most amazing woman in the world." Okay, together now: Aaaaw.
7. The album Year Zero was released with a mind-bending Alternate Reality Game
The Los Angeles Times called it "A total marriage of the pop and gamer aesthetics that unlocks the rusty cages of the music industry…" Visit iamtryingtobelieve. com and dive into the rabbit hole.
8. Trent Reznor gave us Marilyn Manson…
…but he made up for it by producing Saul Williams' brilliant album The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!
9. This is your last chance to see them live!
Trent has hinted that this tour, dubbed Wave Goodbye, may be NIN's last. Grab your tickets now and celebrate what could be the last string of performances by one of music's most revered artists.

ano ba yan si raymund, paiba-iba ng spelling, baka magkaproblema sya nyan sa census
i like NIN's song Right Where It Belongs. may pagka-solipsism yung kwento ng kanta. pati yung kanta ng eheads na Huwag Kang Matakot, feeling ko tungkol sa solipsism din. lalo na dun sa line na: "ikaw ang diyos at hari ng iyong mundo..."

Becoming Attraction: Mariqueen Maandig
The first thing to know about Mariqueen Maandig, vocalist and eyeball magnet for the L.A. space rockers West Indian Girl, is that she’s Filipino, not West Indian. The second thing is that she’s tired of explaining her name and so answers to “Q.” Third, intriguing if not important, she does not wear underwear. “Never,” she says. “I like to be as aerodynamic as possible.” Does that pose a problem when she does her thing onstage? “I don’t worry about a wardrobe malfunction,” she asserts. “If it happens, it happens. It probably has. But it’s not as if I’m doing high kicks up there.” Indeed, lost in West Indian Girl’s trippy, sun-drenched sound, Q is usually swaying with eyes closed, wailing alongside co-vocalist Rob James and handling light percussion with aplomb. “I can play the **** out of a tambourine,” she brags. Though critically acclaimed—the All Music Guide gives the band’s most recent LP, 4th & Wall, four and a half out of five stars—West Indian Girl (named for a strain of LSD) is a decidedly indie act, and we wonder aloud how Q’s sex appeal plays with the anti-Britney crowd. “People have asked me to tone it down,” she admits, “but I’m not ashamed of my body, and I certainly won’t dress to hide it. My whole family is built this way, with tiny waists. We were corseted by God.”
