Is there any way to convert a vinyl song to an MP3? Or has there been any word on if this will be released on a digital download site such as iTunes? Because I'd rather not buy the vinyl and equipment to listen to it/convert it, nor would I like to steal it... So any word on the online download? And if not, is there any way to convert?

other than a record player Equipment-wise, you’ll need an RCA to 1/8” headphone jack cable and an MP3 encoder that gives you the option of recording any audio from your line-in. If you want to do any more serious recording with some spiffier controls and options, you’ll want to look into something like Adobe’s Audition or Sound Forge. ylbissop 21:46, 15 May 2007 (PDT)

I've got both the Survivalism vinyl and the Cap-G, and I think the Survivalism flipside is MUCH better than pretty much than the Capital G one. The David Sitek mix is basically an untouched version of Survivalism with heavier drums. Ick. ChunkyStyle


Oh no, it's the Masons!  ;-) ;-) Seriously, the Capital G logo does remind me of the Masons' logo with the large, capital G in the middle. --Mr z 22:17, 15 May 2007 (PDT)

Heh. I can see that. But I doubt it's what it really means. The only similarity is the G in the center. --Tonyconverse! 14:42, 16 May 2007 (PDT)
The G in the masonic symbol stands for God,Goodness,Geometry,or Greegriment depending on who you ask but i'm pretty sure we know that G stands for Greed on the album. its also interesting that its on top of the iron cross the Iron Cross was awarded only in wartime as a military decoration only. The rays behind the cross on the album are similar to a diminishing version of the rays of the star of the grand cross of the iron cross whitch was not bestowed for bravery but to the most successful General officer at the conclusion of a war. perhaps during this war it is appropriate to award a cross not for bravery but for pure militant success and greed.just thoughts thanks for making me take a closer look Mr Z ylbissop 19:08, 16 May 2007 (PDT)


If this release isn't going to be noted as a Halo, why is it still the title? And is it like that for the Into The Void? Just asking... Jgrizzy89 10:11, 17 May 2007 (PDT)

For the sake of consistancy. It's a halo in all aspects except that it's not officially dubbed a halo. --Tonyconverse! 19:07, 17 May 2007 (PDT)

Ok, makes sense, but then this question follows... Under the Nine Inch Nails' released discography, it labels Hurt as a single, yet nowhere on the Hurt page does it mention set release. Is there a way we can split those into two articles [like how we have a page for both survivalism (song) and survivalism (halo)]? Just a question, hate leaving them unanswered and i know someone will have one... Jgrizzy89 19:34, 17 May 2007 (PDT)

Because the Hurt release was only a promo. There was no commercial release for it. -Heroicraptor 10:16, 18 May 2007 (PDT)

What's interesting to note is the promo cover. It's the distorted cover of Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D. Could this relate to the time travel distorted web sites that it would be used?
