Year Zero Reporting

hey all!

i'm asking for some help. i am writing a research paper on Year's what i need:

Year Zero Experience

  1. What is Year Zero
    1. An analytical album by Nine Inch Nails on the American Gov’t and it’s people.
    2. Who are Nine Inch Nails?

                                                              i.      An Industrial Techno/ Alternative rock group established in the early 1990’s by front man Trent Reznor.


  1. What I want to prove about this Album
    1. Our country has been deceived by the American Gov’t about such things as the war in the Middle East, wire tapping and other things. The people, for the most part are still blind to what is happening. This will eventually lead to fulfilling the albums prophecy.

                                                              i.      It’s not about the album Year Zero itself, it’s about what the album is trying to prove. 


  1. Why does this particular album interest me?
    1. I’ve been a fan of NIN (Nine Inch Nails) for a few years now. Their sound is amazing, Trent Reznor, I believe, is a genius, I love their lyrics masked in metaphors.
    2. This album came about in the first few months of this year. But how it came about was the most intriguing “advertisement” method I’ve ever seen.


  1. How will I prove my thesis?
    1. There are many things related to this album that I could use:

                                                              i.      The NIN Wiki: a trusted site moderated by the fans as they find things (which will be elaborated upon) and the band itself.

                                                            ii.      The message boards: an integral part in the Year Zero Experience.

                                                          iii.      I will use news articles and examples from what is happening today in our Gov’t and society.

                                                          iv.      The songs themselves.

                                                            v.      And if I am so lucky as to make this happen: contact Trent Reznor himself. (which could be a near real possibility)

thats the proposal i gave to my teacher (who seemed VERY interested in this i might add).. so what i need from YOU my lovlies is ideas, help whatever you can give me. personal experiences, the works. please!!! i will love you all forever!!!!

btw, sorry for it being underlined!!! >.
I'm assuming I'm probably too late to help with any ideas, but, I'm really curious to know how your paper went; I got "Year Zero" for XMas and have been listening to it almost non-stop for about the last week, so, I'd *love* to hear what you came up with, and maybe discuss, if you want.
