Yesterday, I woke up to discover a package in the mail.
I, confused and half asleep, open said package. A giant, black box with the NIN logo emblazoned atop is inside.
I read the enclosed letter, which informs me that trent reznor has selected people from the NIN mailing list to recive this complimentary vinyl box, special edition 1697 of 2000.
I never win anything.
I'm like, "RAWR! FREEBIES!!!"
And I pick up the box, and it is light. And with trembling hands, I open the box.
Trent Reznor sent me an empty fucking box.
Rereading the cover note, I discover that the competiton was not for a box with vinyl, but just a fucking box that you can store vinyl inside of.
An empty box, with a cover note explaining how I can fill it with Interscope Products and magically improve my life. Their part of the bargain is sealed by sending me a cheap, bashed 9" pizza box with the NIN logo on it. All I need do is spend rakes of money on their wonderful, pope-blessed vinyl to fill it with.
I might see if I can get trent to autograph my Empty Fucking Box when he hits glasgow in July.
