  • Mood:
I was watching the video portion of Closure (two tapes, one is concert and backstage footage... a lil "documentary" and the other is the music videos) and it was driven home once again just how... flouncy... Trent Reznor is.
First of all.. the bondage obsession, except for Down In It I think it's in every single video to some extent. Bondage and S&M and pain and leather and pvc and dildoes.
He's just so all about it. That's not really a revelation, of course.. but watching them all together really struck me.
Second, could he be a lil more "tortured singer dude"? the flailing and the whiney "ooooh" after the live songs... put aside that the lyrics read (and always have read) like a 15 year old's 'poetry book'. I don't think he's ever pretended to be a wonderful writer and anyone who thinks he is ... well... I'd question their taste. But it's still just... sad... to watch this 30 some year old guy while and grovel and shake and ... have a hissy fit... the way he does.
I thought it was sad when Jon Davis did it on the first Korn album.. but it's Korn, fer chrissakes. All day they dream about sex and apparently, they're just hunkey dorey being known for that. ::shrug::

Third, there is a 'video' thingy (hard to explain) for March of the Pigs. Trent smacks down 3 microphones, falls all over the place, and rubs his crotch a lot. I mean just blatantly rubs his crotch. Over and over. In his burgundy leather pants, baggy fishnet shirt and vest... he just rubs his crotch... I uh ...

it was disturbing, really.

And to think, I used to think he was pretty cool.

    While I rarely have the energy or mental clarity for a fully fleshed out blah blah in the livejournal, I almost always have the energy for picspam…

  • Yep, still feeling old

    Well alright, Semagic has changed more than a little since the last time I used it. Heh. This is pretty ridiculous. Because Tamara has chosen to…

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
