Food, Folks And Fun
After watching the live broadcast of the NIN performance at Big Day Out, I started thinking how cool it's going to be when they perform at the special private concert and weenie roast at my house (as previously mentioned in the Dec. 8, 1999 issue, Three MC's And One TR"). Then I remembered that I'm a lying bastard, and that there are no real plans for a private concert and weenie roast. So that's why I'm making this week's Perspective about:
WHY NINE INCH NAILS SHOULD COME HAVE A GOOD
OL' FASHIONED BARBECUE AT MEATHEAD'S HOUSE
Okay, sure, it may seem a little impractical at first. They'd have to completely interrupt the Fragility tour and drive all the way out to a crappy little suburban residential area in Maryland just to hang out with some idiot they don't even know. That's one way of looking at it.
On the other hand, there's free food! I'm sure that touring can work up one's appetite, and what better way to feed that appetite than by chowing down on a nice juicy burger at Meathead's place? There are a number of condiments available, such as ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and more! How could anyone pass that up?
|Come on, Trent, think about it. Besides,
it would be a nice, refreshing break from
playing at all those "normal" venues packed
with loud, annoying people. You all could
just relax, throw back some cold ones and
enjoy the day. Sounds tempting, doesn't it?
Of course it does! If you're not sold yet,
you will be soon.
||If you're worried about not having anything to do while you're here, don't be. I've got it all taken care of. How about a fun game of hide-and-seek, lawn darts, or "pelt Jerome Dillon relentlessly with water balloons"?
Unfortunately, there is no swimming pool... but there is a water hose! Oh, boy! I suppose I should probably find some way to Leo-proof it beforehand, though.
Also, I'd be interested in hearing you cover "Mama Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J. If you could figure out how to work that into the set, that would be cool.
While it's not a requirement in order to come to the barbecue, it would be nice if you would play a few songs for everyone while you're here. Here is the setlist that I would like you to play:
Now I'm Nothing
Into The Void
I truly hope that you will accept my invitation, and stop by for some burgers and hot dogs when you're in the area. I'm sure everyone will have a nice time. At any rate, it can't be any worse than the time I made the mistake of inviting Yanni over for some grilled steaks.|
Anyway, just be sure and let me know when you plan to be here, so I can be prepared. Wouldn't want you all to drop by and me not have any food! God, that would be embarrassing!
