This is the beginning of the end.


This is my new blog. I am Trent Reznor, nice to meet you. I guess this is where I will be updating you on my life, love, loofahs, and everything in between. Honestly, I don't think I have to say much of anything to introduce myself, everybody already knows who I am.

So I guess I'll just jump right in and start. It's quite early in the morning, and I have a show tonight, and honestly I don't know why I am awake. We're in Portland, OR.

There has been so much chaos lately about my recent "curtain call" post on the front page of Let me explain: I am taking a break. From touring. I am not quitting. As much as I might secretly love to just stop, these poor old bones can't take it anymore, I'm not going to. And all I said was that, at the end of the announced 2009 dates, that will be the last NIN show of this scale. I mean, really. I didn't say "Screw you guys, I'm leaving!" I just said that these shows will be the last of their kind. This costs a lot of money, you know?! And it takes a serious toll on my mental health now that I have to do all of this planning and everything on my own. But it's worth it, I think.

It really makes me so sad that everybody thinks I was just going to leave them high and dry and just quit. I mean, I love what I do. I have music constantly pumping through my veins, I can't just stop, no matter how hard I try. I just really wish that my fans would realize this. :'( I love you all, and I will never disappoint you. Oh, and sorry about that DVD thing. Blame Interscope. But I'm very excited about the fan DVD that might be happening, very awesome. My fans are so great!

I just wish that I was worthy of such admiration...

Well, that's all for now, my iPhone needs charging. I'll be sure to update soon!
