    The Pomona show was incredible, and this is coming from someone who didn't really care about NIN before.

    How much longer are the stand alone shows?
    90 minutes or so? (coachella was an hour).

    No it wasn't. It was good, not great. She was clearly not owning her own stage presence, and at points the visuals were incredibly lackluster.

    Her stage presence seemed good from where I was standing. And I liked the visuals! Especially that shifting-shape projection thing.

    That was also one of the shittiest sounding venues I've ever been in.

    Wow, I feel like I was at a different show Cara. I was completely blown away in every respect. Even with some weird mix issues with the PAs in the back of the room, I thought it was a flawless performance and easily my favorite set of the year so far.

    That's your opinion which happens to be very different from mine and everyone I was with.

    Thank you for boringly pointing out the blatantly obvious, Icey. I wanted to love the show a lot more than I did, but I thought a few of the songs fell flat.

    * Perhaps having balcony seats wasn't the best location for it, too.

    Yes I know saying "it's your opinion" is obvious but the way you quoted me I felt the need to respond.

    And maybe everyone's expectations are the problem. Everyone wants to love it too much. Just let it happen.

    And to add a bit re: stage presence my brother came out of that show saying she should get a lot more respect because she was "creepily awesome". As for the visuals, I thought it was by far the coolest thing I'd ever seen at a concert. I don't think it could have been done better.

    I loved the way she used the sleeves on her dress, very dramatic.

    Of coarse I am! Doesn't preclude me from being right though

    To be honest, I wish NIN would stay away for a few more years and for HtDA to continue exploring. Oh well, I'm stoked either way.

    NIN coming back hasn't really sunk in for me yet because of this whole HTDA thing. NIN at OSL could be really cathartic for me.

    NIN should get HTDA to open for them.

    I wonder if they'll bother taking HTDA overseas or not.

    Left Foals early to get a good spot for this, and didn't even need to. Crowd wasn't very big at all, possibly because of Blur. Sadly we left early. It just seemed there was no energy. Very stagnant set in my opinion, i don't know, just wasn't feeling it.

    Again--I tried to watch this piece of shit twice. Both times were lame. This is clearly something he did to shut his wife up, and frankly I don't hear a lot of him in the music at all.

    This is probably that absolutely wrong place to post this, but BOTH WEEKENDS I heard Foals' song "Spanish Sahara" from afar as I was wandering around the festival and it was breathtaking even far away from the Mojave.

    I skipped them at Coachella but saw them in SF the following week. Visuals were pretty cool but I can't see myself paying to see it again. It just makes me want NIN.

    Oh, thought you meant the webcast.
    But anyway, you hate everyone and everything.
    Did you like anything this year? Or any year?

    And HTDA would make a better NIN opening act, anyway.
    Trent would be a bit more tired doing double duty, but he'd live.

    It sounded horrible and we were three rows back in the balcony.I thought wrong when trying to do balcony seats for a Visual/audio show.

    I belive my exact words were... "This is Trent buying his wife a shoe store for her to run to keep her quiet and out of his hair"

    Shit music and I came wanting to like it because I liked their first single but the visuals while cool arent good enough to overcome the lackluster feel of the music which has elements that sound to crappy to be glitch. If the music was quality I would have stayed but 3 songs that sounded the same and not in a good way was all i could stands.

    Haha, if you thought it was lame the first time, why the f*** did you see it again?
