They were at least ten inches, but more like a twelve. Anyway, I’ve never been a huge Nine Inch Nails fan. Back in the day, I bought Pretty Hate Machine and thought “Head Like A Hole” was pretty amazing, but “Something I Can Never Have” just sounded like a bad possible future Johnny Cash cover (glad he went with the other one). Pretty Hate Machine had lots of kinda interesting anti-Christian symbolism that mostly just came off as a middle finger up at Me, so as you might imagine, it didn’t enter My holy tape deck too often. For those of you kiddies in seminary that have cool teachers that let you write about “secular culture”, this album is an A+ term paper just waiting to be written. I’ve been listening to Trent’s new album lately, Year Zero, and despite the mostly positive reviews, I still feel a little too much of that middle finger to enjoy this. However, I’ve been loving his new marketing approach, which many of you might already know about. Trent has been very sneaky getting this album hype all stirred up, and to My surprise, his boldest move has not really been getting too much blog attention. That’s why I, the son of Man, am surprising even Myself (not really) by writing up a Nine Inch Nails themed post. And here, ladies and gentlemen, is why… That crazy Trent Reznor has snuck into and is now the lead singer of the contemporary country band Little Texas! That’s right, the band that brought you “God Bless Texas” is now fronted by Mr. Trent “The Crow is my favorite movie” Reznor! I wouldn’t believe it Myself if I hadn’t seen their new video with My own two plankless eyes. Check it out for yourself over at iFilm. The iFilm site might make you sit through a commercial first, but it is well worth it to see NIN’s Trent Reznor singing a country ballad with Little Texas as his backing band. That Trent Reznor, what will he think of next?
