trent announced on friday that NIN would be going on an “indefinite hiatus” after a string of dates late august and early september in NY, Chicago and ending in LA at the Echoplex. suppose indefinite is better definite?

abbey sings ellington. off 1959’s “abbey is blue” LP. an all-time favorite vocal. that moment when she lifts out into the song’s title words… just stunning.
so i was watching the film “independence day” the other day, i mean why not right? its fourth of july weekend! that’s what you do, right? and really everytime i watch the film i think (other than, man, why wasn’t harvey fierstein’s character more developed, amirite?) holy shit why didn’t the aliens invade packing macs? RIGHT???? i mean as was called out in the movie, the aliens knew when to attack us, how to attack us, all that bullshit, supposedly studied the human race for decades and then they neglect the whole mac/pc virus thing????
right… anyway, can you say bitchin’ sequel? the aliens return + macs……i see the screenplay (this is just an idea) playing out in three basic phases, 1) aliens blow shit up….this is good for at least 45 minutes of film time, 2) goldblum’s fuckin’ puzzled…..this should go on for about 45 minutes too….goldblum puzzled = $$$$$$, trust us! 3) we make millions. you know vivica fox’s plastic surgery fund is runnin’ a bit thin, she’d be down for sure and we could prob get bill pullman to work for weed. so roland emmerich, ball is in your court, dude, call us!
so how high were talib and snoop when they did this? that’s one small hit for buzz and one fucking giant hit for snoop’s rocket experience. hell yeah, got that?
the thievery touch to this makes it perfect.
