AT LEAST ONE COUNTDOWN WAS WORTH IT (HINT: TRENT REZNOR IS INVOLVED)

140

From nin.com [via MetalSucks Maniac Sukey Scorer], we have an update to Trent Reznor’s mysterious weekend countdown message:

The internet is full of surprises these days.
I was contacted by a mysterious, shadowy group of subversives who SOMEHOW managed to film a substantial amount (over 400 GB!) of raw, unedited HD footage from three separate complete shows of our Lights in the Sky tour. Security must have been lacking at these shows because the quality of the footage is excellent.

If any of you could find a LINK to that footage I’ll bet some enterprising fans could assemble something pretty cool.

Oh yeah, you didn’t hear this from me.

Just the latest in a long, long string of ultimate “bro” moves by Trent Reznor over the past year.

But wait; it doesn’t stop there.

There is also a fan site called This One Is On Us that aims to collect fan-filmed footage from cell phones, digital cameras, etc from all over the Internet — not the official stuff from Trent — to allow fans to create their very own edit of the Lights In the Sky tour’s last show in Las Vegas (also the last show with Josh Freese and Alessandro Cortini in the band).

If that’s not innovative, I don’t know what is. Harness the power of the Internet to connect the true fans and establish an even deeper connection with them. A defiant “fuck you” in the face of NIN’s old record label (Interscope) who blocked the filming of an official DVD.

Trent does it yet again.
