This weekend, Nine Inch Nails performed a pair of shows at The Joint in Las Vegas, NV as a warmup for their upcoming global tour. The performances—on Wednesday and Friday nights, respectively—were full of highlights, including the live debut of their recently released single, “God Break Down The Door” and more. Another night one highlight came in the form of an excellent “I’m Afraid of Americans”, the David Bowie track to which Trent Reznor originally contributed in the late ’90’s.

Source: Fox Sports Australian Winter Olympics star Alex “Chumpy” Pullin has died aged 32 in a tragic accident on the Gold Coast.Pullin died while spear fishing off Palm Beach.As he was free-diving, he was not wearing an oxygen mask and was equipped with a weight belt.Pullin was a two-time world champion in snowboard cross and one of Australia’s most popular and high profile winter athletes.The Courier Mail reported the former world snowboarding champion suffered a shallow water blackout shortly after 10.30am local time. A shallow water blackout occurs when a person ‘faints’ underwater from a loss of oxygen.“He didn’t have an oxygen mask, we understand he was free diving and spearfishing out on the reef,” Gold Coast Police District Duty Officer Chris Tritton said.“It appears he was diving alone. There were other divers out there but he was not with a friend.”Pullin was found unresponsive on the ocean floor by a snorkeller who brought him to the surface before lifeguards took him to shore.They attempted to revive him before paramedics took over and performed CPR for 45 minutes but were unable to save him.While best known for his talent on the snow, Pullin was also a spear fishing and diving enthusiast and a keen surfer.
