[TRAILHEAD] NIN "Year Zero" ARG or ARGish happening?

NIN has a new album coming out on April 17th and today in a post on "The Nin Hotline" there were hidden links to www.iamtryingtobelieve.com the site seems to suggest
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
that in the nearish future there will be bio chemical terrorist attacks on America but a drug in our water keeps us safe.


The new album Year Zero is supposed to have a storyline running through it, and Trent said in an interview that the experience would go beyond the disc.

EDIT - moved thread into Potentials forum, added NIN tag. - SG

Aw, I was JUST about to post this.

The letters were also highlighted on the recent tour shirts...



Also, check out http://yearzero.nin.com , as it has a full track listing of the new album and a bunch of hidden pictures.

So I read through the whole site. One, at first I was noticing that nothing being discussed was real: parepin, zeridine, Calista Whitcomb, "Sing Me to Sleep". However, upon reaching the last page, I found the reason.

Quote:
Then I met an old friend of mine. He seemed different from everyone else. Sharper. Healthier, even. He told me he’d been off Parepin for four years solid. I didn’t believe him at first, but he was very convincing. He said he’d been off Parepin during the northeastern bio-attack in ‘19 and didn’t suffer a thing.


In '19. Website from the future?

Anyway, I sent an email off to the address given (waterSPLATiamtryingtobelieve.com) and got this in reply:
Quote:

Thank you for your interest. It is now clear to me that Parepin is a completely
safe and effective agent developed to protect us from bio-terrorism. The
Administration is acting purely in the best interests of its citizens; to
suggest otherwise was irresponsible and I deeply regret it.

I'm drinking the water. So should you.


Looks like the Administration got to him o_o

 parepin
parsing description

It seems as though parepin, is another way of describing the act of parsing, or syntax analysis.
Changing text entry into graphic coding?

Notice the years in the timestamps are all 0000. I'm guessing this is set in 2024, based on the '19 reference and the 24.14.3 on the front page of the first site.

Are you seeing double text as well on these pages or is it just my computer?

Actually, it's probably year 0024 Wink 0000 IE Year Zero = end of the known world? so 24 years after the world ended?

There's a teeny envelope icon at the top and bottom of each thread page.

I can't help you with the second one. :/

ETA: As for 3, reverse domain listing on the IP from the original site.
