“It’s My Birthday, Bitches.”

Mr. Michael Trent Reznor, born May 17th, 1965, is forty-four years old today. I used to be such a rabid devotee of Reznor’s back in the Downward Spiral days. These days, not so much. Still, I’m very thankful to Trent for reminding me during a period where I was going through what you might call a “Dark Night of the Soul” that there were people around who were considerably more miserable than me! Happy Birthday, Trent!
