    I am looking forward to the DVD.

    You may be interested in the album I just recently released. It is available free to download. Licensed with the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Licence. This licence lets you use this music for commercial products or make remixes or other derivative works, so long as you give credit to the original artists. Politics Apocalypse is political and subversive post-industrial rock with an interesting mix of classical instruments, guitars, electronic beats, and a small dash of aussie hip-hop. You can download the whole 11 track album at no cost at our website. We are also doing a name your own price CD (starting at cost price). I don’t mean to spam but I am trying to get the word out to those who may be interested.

    @ Francesca
    i’m not guilty, just in case you think i deleted it!

    @ Cliffe
    don’t worry, since you deliver good info about your music without going “OMG trent i haz made some musiek will yu listen kthxby!!1!” (don’t laugh, i deleted stuff like this) i don’t consider it as spam.
    but for the love of the flying spaghetti monster – change the backgrounds of your site! my eyes are still hurting! 😛

    Very interesting with the “God Given” video…I thought it would be something different……Not to get off of this subject, but I finally saw “closer” video tonight even though I’ve listened to it umpteen times…LOVED how you were bondaged, GAWD was that ever HOT! I will now keep my mouth shut. Otherwise, this could turn into a FORUM if I really start to say what’s on my mind;)

    “The Slip” is great. I’m so happy that Trent is as addicted to the political/moral state of America…but that’s because I’ve been blogging about George Bush being the Antichrist for three years now (on top of being a long-time NIN fan).

    Such a dangerous threat is looming like a guillotine blade above the neck of the world…who has the courage to look up and examine it? Very few. I’m fascinated by this rumor that there will be a 3rd disc in The Slip’s release (entitled “The Takeover”). Even if it’s not true, that title points to exactly what Reznor and others have been warning about…that George Bush will continue on his Hitler-esque rise to power, declare martial law, and put his Halliburton-built Concentration Camps to use before leaving office.

    The Writing is on The Wall…The Warnings are all around us. Evil is very real and obvious to those who look…May God have mercy on our dirty little hearts.
