Post #52: How To Destroy Angels - "The Space in Between"

Post #52: Every morning when I get to the office, I take the lazy way out and use the elevator from the first to the second floor. During this 20 second ride, I have the opportunity to read the video screens they have installed, which highlight top news stories, stock quotes, etc.,.

Yesterday it informed me that Trent Reznor will be scoring the film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which from what I have heard has become a pretty popular book. This will be his second time working with David Fincher as he also scored the recent film The Social Network.

Now that Nine Inch Nail is done, aside from scoring films, he also has a project called How to Destroy Angels, which is made up of Trent and his wife Mariqueen Maandig, both of which are seen in this video (the dead couple).

Some think this song is about the struggle of being a celebrity and meeting the expectations of fans that always want more, or that it is possibly about the two of them announcing their engagement while still trying to maintain privacy. Gruesomeness aside, this is a pretty cool video.

And if you go to their website, you can download their EP for free.  Something Trent did for the last couple NIN albums.  Click on the link below.
