Reznor’s “right thing” appears to be relentless work. He doesn’t just follow his muse; he chases it and wrestles it to the ground. In addition to those two albums released this year, he has been meeting with HBO to pitch his idea of writing a two-year series called “Year Zero,” which would be based on the intricate science-fiction tale that he created for a 2007 album of the same title. It also came alive for fans as an alternate-reality game on the Internet.
I would get HBO just for this. Seriously.
(Two music posts in one day? Meh. I writes what strikes my interest.)
