Yup.  Nailed it.

What a timely parody of an album that came out in 1994.

This is a repeat from a few weeks ago.

Yup, and I'm still too tired this morning to post all the Liam Lynch videos.

Whatever - this just reminded me to dig out my old Pretty Hate Machine music.  Holds up pretty danged well.  25 years later.  Wow.

No, a few week ago was audio only.  Now with video goodness.

Yeah, everyone has a certain style. Reznor's seems to work well enough that you were able to figure out how to spoof it. Don't understand the excitement over this, subby seems to get excited over silly shiat.

Ya. Being born in '83, Reznor is supposed to be my demographic.

I don't really care either way? I don't listen to his stuff because I don't enjoy it, and find it all pretty similar, but don't change the station immediately when it comes on like I do certain artists or songs.

When it comes to satire, the 20th birthday of something isn't the time to throw the baby shower.

I'll say it, Reznors work has been mediocre since Broken EP.

Hell, I'm 46 and even kinda like NIN. I just thought the spoof lyrics were lame. Video was more amusing. I'm holding out for a Skinny Puppy parody.

The audio style and structure are closer to "Copy of A", which is on their latest album  Hesitation Marks, which dropped last year.

I was going to say that PHM era NIN was a Skinny Puppy parody, but I figured it was too early to start a flamewar.

Yes and no. The song melody is a parody of "Copy of A" which came out last year. Along with references to past songs like "Closer."

How can you make a Trent Reznor video without the screaming part?

I'm definitely not a NIN fan, but this kind of "point at the celebrity and laugh" humor is cringe-worthy. It's like on Family Guy, they exaggerate a characteristic of someone famous, such as a facial feature, and puts the viewer in a mob mentality..the whole joke as if we are kids in a classroom making fun of some minor flaw.

This music video itself was sorely lacking with interlace artifacts and lack of a filmic-look on many shots.

when I bought it in 1995 or so, I thought it was dated as all fark for an album that was only 6 years old. I like quite a bit of it, but a good 25% is kind of crap.

I didn't think the parody quite worked because it was basically a parody of a specific track rather than a pisstake on NIN's overall approach. The video makes it a bit more all encompassing of Trent's work, though the track in question doesn't even match the style of the era they're poking fun at.

Yeah born in 83 makes him like, 6 or 7 years old when PHM came out, and 11 for Downward Spiral. After than NIN kind of faded away, at least for me they did.

Yeah, so was mine.  I had copied PHM over something else, so that my parents wouldn't find it and get upset.

Cassettes were the bomb.

Kids these days will never understand the thought that went into mix tapes.

Nor the analog skils in co-ordinating the needle drop and the recording start to give you the shortest possible interval...without either record or tape obviously coming up to speed.

I had scratch sheets where I calculated exactly how to get the most songs into a 30 or 45 minute tape side.  SCRATCH SHEETS, I SAY!

Saw NIN with Jane's Addiction at the PNC a few years back. Trent still puts on a fantastic show.

And assuming/praying the machine didn't start to eat the tape and you had to spend the next hour untangeling and winding it back in.

Nothing like adding minutes and seconds by longhand to get the right time. Or trying to figure out if you want to spend the money for the better 90 minute tapes that don't break or getting more of the sturdier 60 minute tapes.

I was one of the first to have a dual cassette deck in my dorm. I made money copying tapes or making mix tapes. My New Order, Depeche Mode and OMD mix tape was legendary.

Eh, PHM has at least as much Depeche Mode in it as it does Skinny Puppy.

I used to make up the last minute or so on a side with comedy bits or short stretches of novelty songs. I finished one "A" side with the "It's" from Monty Python, after which the tape reversed and it probably went into some punk band or maybe the Pogues.
