Totally off-topic, but NIN have released two albums this year; "Ghosts I - IV" (a collection of ambient improvisations) and "The Slip" (a 'proper' album) under the Creative Commons Share Alike Non-Commercial licence.

An interesting move in the age of DRM. They also have a remix site (http://remix.nin.com) where they offer the 'source' for Garageband, ableton Live, as well as plain old wav format files for each track.

Which, translated into normal human English, means "Moran Tawdry" ? Yes, well I suppose so!
