words shapes shadows
The other night GOB & I watched a Radiohead concert on cable - Thom Yorke live gives me goosebumps, he's an incredible gift to us mere mortals.That video makes me appreciate Radiohead even more, that song is beautiful. Thanks for the share, I think I'm going to go bliss out now...
Aren't you guys lucky to catch a concert, Michelle!I get the same way about Thom Yorke. I am in awe of his godlike genius. Actually I was asking a friend in Oxford about saying hello to Thom and he informed me that he had it on reliable authority that Thom is less than impressed if approached and that he had quite a vicious temper, as a student. And that's totally acceptable to me, a mere mortal. I hear the rest of the guys are quite pleasant though.Happy to pass along my scavengings to you! It's all about sharing the love.
I still don't get radiohead...I almost said that to Jian and George when I was in Toronto. They had just both been to the Radiohead concert the night before. Is there a blue pill one takes to 'get' Radiohead?
Actually, you have to take the RED pill to get Radiohead, Barbara W. But it's an honest mistake...
Now, Pitchfork is getting rather heavy on the YouTube links - feeling a little heat from music blogs, maybe?So, the link is now there for your radio interview ... which was awesome. Well, put together piece. Is it what you imagined would happen in editing? I'm glad you think your readers are well-read. I'll have to link to it.
Thanks for the Radiohead link :) Next to SLC its making my morning.
You are right, Will, the personal music blogs seem to be giving the big guns a run for their money, that's for sure.It's interesting that you bring up the editting of the radio piece; I was quite surprised what it morphed into. From 45 minutes of me yapping about various things and answering a few questions, it became this cohesive 5 minutes. I guess that's what editting is all about; I've just never really given it that much thought before, but now I am really interested in the process. I'll bet it's a lot of work.Anytime, Allison! Nothing better than a new Radiohead song (particularly as I didn't get to listen to SLC today).
It wouldn't surprise me in the least if Thom didn't possess a fierce artistic temperament, that man really gets into his music. And I'm with you, that's perfectly fine with me!Barbara W, it took me a while to warm up to Radiohead, too. Give it time, before you know it you'll forget not knowing their splendor!
Aaaahhhh well put, Michelle, as always - yes, Radiohead is like a fine wine or a ripe cheese (oh god here we are back at the stinky cheese conversation) and are a developed taste. So Barbara W, keep trying little sips.
So it's not a pill I should be taking but I should be sipping lots of wine? LOL
Barbara W - you should always be sipping wine, yes, but leave your pretty car at home. You can take the pill too, if you like.
*Jeremia was a bullfrog. Was a good friend of mine. Never understood a single word he said, cause he was always sipping the wine*. ( Joy to the world, Three Dog Night) See it all comes back to really good music that I can 'get' like Three Dog Night.
Okay then, explain why Jeremiah was a bullfrog please, BW. Cause I've never understood that relationship.
Don't you have bullfrogs as friends? Don't you know any bullfrogs?
I've kissed a couple of toads in my day, BW, but that's about it.
I'm guessing Jeremiah was a bullfrog only to the dude who dropped the acid...
Thanks for the link! That was great. My fav Radiohead song is Creep.
I'm thinking you could have a very valid point there, Michelle!Hi Mellowlee, welcome! I love that we're getting to hear all these new Radiohead songs as they are being premiered. Almost makes up for not being at a concert.And you can't beat Creep (well, you can, but it was my first Radiohead love), no matter what Thom says.
Very cool design! Useful information. Go on! » » »
