....i am up way too late considering i have to be up at 11.
actually, no. i didn't much like his new song. it seems more like a reinterpretation of his former work than him pushing himself forward and being innovative.
i'll probably download it regardless, hopefully the entire album won't be so disappointing.
I honestly thought you've had it downloaded already. You were a pretty die hard NIN fan. Though not really sure now, since I don't really talk to you any more. It's probably not worth the trouble buying, so you would be better off downloading it. It doesn't even come with a pretty cd booklet most NIN cds have. It's just a digipack with a cd in it. The album as a whole is mediocre at best. It has some good songs, but it seems as if it's lacking something. Not something you'd expect from 5 - 6 years of work. I didn't care for the single either. "All the love in the world", "Right where it belongs" and "Every day is exactly the same" are worth a listen.
By the way, how have you been?
i dunno, i fell out of touch with it all. i still enjoy it when head like a hole comes on the radio, but i'm not as into it anymore.
it's really sad that the packaging sucks, that was definitely the best part of buying a nin cd.
i'm been decent. just school and sleep, basically. my grandma almost died last week, that's the only big thing that's happened in a long time.
Ah, I see. So what are you listening to now? Apparently not NIN and Aphex Twin. (:
Yeah, I agree. NIN has always been known for their packaging. And this album doesn't really have anything cool to look at. That's why I bought NIN albums. They always had some cool stuff to look at in their album art. If I'd known that, I probably would have just downloaded it instead.
I can relate to the school and sleep drill. Sorry to hear about your grandmother, hope she's doing okay now.
Have you heard from Dolsen lately?
don't be sorry. i hate my grandmother, you know that.
i haven't in a few weeks. last i heard he had moved to back columbus from memphis again to move in with some girl.
and i buy everything for the packaging. i think that's what i'm going to specialize in.
You don't hate her. You may strongly dislike her, but you don't HATE her. Do you?
Yeah, I think you'd do a good job. I remember back when I was a corny wannabe techno "artist" that I wanted you to design me some album art.
Remember the "Naked Fishy" era?
yes, i indeed hate her. i don't even love her out of obligation.
heh. i remember that, both of them.
although i dont' think i'd go into album art necessarily, not anymore than i have been. probably other product packaging if i end up working in a firm. i'm trying to freelance or start a business with a friend of mine right now.
Ah, well that's horrible. Out of curiousity, why do you hate her so much (if you don't mind me asking)?
That's cool. You plan on staying in Atlanta, or are you thinking about moving? I remember you saying once that you plan on moving on to another major city.
You ever hear from Dolsen any more? I haven't heard from him in years. Not too long ago, he added me on hi5, but didn't hear anything out of him.
emotionally abusive. although it's better now that i've moved away and she misses her punching bag. she keeps sweet talking me back home.
i'm looking into going to grad school at risd, which is in rhode island. but i'm also looking into leaving the country. either is likely right now.
and yeah, i hear from him once a month or so. we don't talk nearly as much anymore, but i figure we'll always catch up with eachother eventually. he came to see me 9ish months ago when nopi came around. i was obviously, conveniently where nopi is.
Ah I see.
Rhode Island. I couldn't stand the cold. Anything below 70 degrees and I freeze. You seem like you'd move to Europe. You'd probably make a lot more if you went to a school over there. But perhaps you have some where else out of the country in mind.
Ah, NOPI, I take it he's still into all that Ricer stuff. Nothing wrong with that. It's just an expensive hobby if you want to do it right. Around here, they make spoilers out of cardboard and tin foil (and I'm not joking).
I'm glad you're doing well for the most part in the big ATL. You're doing something I would love to do/love to be, and I can respect you a great deal for finding a way to do it.
I'm running short on words. It's really nice talking to you again. Normally, if we were to try and talk, it usually end in conflict. I guess this shows how much we've both matured. I'm not cutting you off or anything, if there is anything you want to say, feel free. I wish you the best.
i'm either moving them to a bigger tank or building a bigger tank. 12 in one 10 gallon would be a bit much. although 8 of those 12 will be under the size of a quarter.
i think if i didn't have rupert, lentil, and lilly that i could fit 12 in no problem. they're just such big crabs, that i count them for 2-3 small ones.
