Trent And Mariqueen

Labels: , ,

Mariqueen and Trent

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails is engaged to be married to Mariqueen Maandig or Q, one of the vocalists of an indie alt rock band West Indian Girl. I am not a big fan of NIN although I have two of his CDs in my iPod. The girl is of Filipino descent and I have never heard of her and her band, I'll probably download a song or two from their website.

wow, really? a pinay huh? gotta check out her site.

btw, the new drummer for NIN (ilan rubin)is a former student at the school where i work, although he wasn't my student. the kid's only 21. he was a child prodigy and i remember him playing drums in his old group 10 years ago!

Very cool. I am going to see Nine Inch Nails with Jane's Addiction in a couple weeks, and I am so looking forward to it.

While in L.A. a few weeks ago, I was having breakfast a table away from Perry Ferrell (lead singer of Jane's Addiction) and his wife Etty Lau Farrell (from Hong Kong) at Dupar's in L.A. It was right after the SXSW reunion show, in fact. They were having breakfast at two in the afternoon just like us.

I will have to check out West Indian Girl. Thanks!

R, I have gotten so much hits and they are all googling her not Trent..that's cool about the new drummer. 21 years old, less than half Reznor's age. Trent must be feeling old.:)

Paula, wow, enjoy the concert. I listened to a few songs and I like them a little bit..:)

hi oggi
i checked out mariqueen's blogspot and her myspace pages, etc.

turns out that she is from san diego. i wonder if she's related to this girl i know with the same last name. i mean, how many people are out there with that last name? my friend only has one sister though and mariqueen isn't her! i wonder if she's related...

oggi said...

R, she probably is. I don't think many Filipinos have her almost unique name.:)

hello oggi,

am a long time lurker and your trent reznor/mariqueen post has finally made me come out of the woodwork. some of the songs by west indian girl remind me of jane's addiction. but their last album was a dud. mariqueen's singing voice i really like. she harmonizes well with the other guy in the band and she doesn't sound "asian" at all.

anyway, i really like your kulinarya series and will be placing and order for the cookbook soon. thanks!

Gemma, thanks for the info...I haven't decided which cd I will get.

Glad you like the kulinarya, I already have in draft the pandesal recipe and will post it soon.:)
