Axver had a four day heart attack...a day for each chamber. At the autopsy, they said his heart looked like a basketball filled with ricotta cheese.

Axver breast feeds John Madden.

To answer Carlos' original question, yes, it's okay to not like Radiohead. You'll be missing out on some awesome, awesome stuff, and Thom's lazy eye, but at least you've got your 19%.

why would it not be okay?

just because Bang and Clatter have a few threads highly devoted to a handful of Groups that if you say 'Hey, know what? Radiohead suck BOLLOX!' - that you will be attacked?

hell no, you get respect for admitting your true feelings.

I mean, I like couple of their songs but Im not seriously so into them I would tattoo Thom Yorke on my breast or anything.

ya know?

f*k it.

for me it's the same as my current Fleet Foxes predicament
I recognise it's good, but I get bored by it quickly
nothing all that engaging for me

at least Fleet Foxes fans are less militant than Radiohead fans used to be
so all's good

I'll say what I always say, I like Radiohead, I really do, but more often than not it's the Radiohead superfans that tend to turn me off. I'm not going to bow down to Thom Yorke and proclaim every album the greatest thing of all time, but I'm not going to say they suck for argument's sake.

Not liking Radiohead is a mistake.

A mistake.

A huge mistake.
See, I kinda regret getting into Radiohead reasonably deep. As much as I appreciate their shit and listen to it a fair bit, I find quite a few of their songs profoundly distasteful. It's not so much that I don't like these songs, because they do sound good, but only in an ear-candy or fan-boy way, and are ultmately depressing and lack any kind of feel-good factor, which is not good for one's well-being.....

Melatonin, Knives Out, Morning Bell, Street Spirit, The Trickster, Creep, Backdrifts, 15 Step fit this category for me. Something sickening about them....

Why, oh why, did you people have to bring Radiohead into a thread about the fact that Axver taught Charles Atlas how to smash weights.
