MadForIt, you're really pushing it. I suggest taking a breather if you can't refrain from being rude and insulting (whatever the language).

Did anyone else notice for the Grammy performance that all the marching band members had 15 Steps T Shirts on? Nice touch, I thought...

I thought it was fitting as the harnesses for the drums they were wearing crisscrossed sideways over their Radiohead t-shirts similar to a one strap bag, which as Joyful will inform you, is the "look of choice" of all Radiohead fans.

I think that's just the way those harnesses are for the battery. My sister's in the battery in drumline and she has the same kind of harness.

(P.S. I told her to watch and she texted me after saying Man I wish I could've been on of those drummers! my 'lil sis

Wanna Be In My Gang?

... What is far more fascinating is the way true fanatics can see aesthetic consistencies within the seemingly unremarkable. Until glancing at these photographs, I had never realised that the defining quality of a diehard Radiohead fan was the wearing of a diagonal strap across one's torso. What does that even mean? What do these people hear on Bodysnatchers that makes this visual determination so self-evident? It's not like this extraneous strap is some kind of widespread youth trend that lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood is spearheading; this is not like thousands of teenagers getting Beatles haircuts because that's the style of the time. It is not a look that will spill over into conventional society.

This personal choice has something to do with proving that you are not like a normal person, and it suggests you understand something about Radiohead that the average citizen cannot see or hear or feel. It goes to the nucleus of why pop music matters - at its highest levels of achievement, rock'n'roll is supposed to serve as "lifestyle music". It should have the potential to inform every single decision about being alive. And for these photogenic goofballs, it obviously does.

For the record, I wear a diagonal strap to all concerts - if I'm carrying a purse, that is. You can take the girl out of NYC but you cannot take NYC out of the girl, as they say. The way to not get your bag stolen is to wear it diagonally across your chest, and it also balances the weight better. Take it from a girl with a heavy bag, diagonal is the way to go.

So I have no idea why these other losers are wearing diagonal straps.

I wasn't cool enough for that picture. It's nice to see Gabe in there though. I'm sure he's pleased.

What do you do after you've achieved your life's goal?

One of these days, I'm simply going to post a picture of my nut sack. But will I give them a shot of the whole thing? Nope. One nut and part of the taint. That's all these bitches deserve. Just like Lance's mom.
