I just think it's weird that Earnie Shavers came in here with these tidbits of information that seemingly nobody else has heard anything about.

Yeah, I don't see any mention of either of those stories on At Ease or Greenplastic, but both of them seem logical, I suppose. KoL does not seem like the kind of album that lends itself to a large-scale tour. Maybe a small-venue tour will happen, kind of like Thom's "Atoms for Peace" shows.

Nobody else cares about these claims of no touring and a From The Basement-esque live performance?

What the fuck is going on?
Please look into the time differences between the US and NSW, and you'll understand why he didn't reply.

And as to the speculation, apparently Radiohead fans who truly have no lives have been obsessing over some Chieftain Mew's character tweets, as he has released correct info from time to time on recent Radiohead related things. Said mega-nerd fans are all pulling things out of their kiesters as to what his tweets may or may not mean. Apparently he announced that something would happen today (ended up being an interview), but all the nerd-dorks assumed it would be a webcast announcement. So yeah, there's no legit proof that a webcast is coming, all complete speculation based on nothing.

It was supposed to be sarcastic, but reading it again, it definitely looks justice-filled. I apologize, Captain.

If this is true, I'm torn between excitement and sadness.
GOOD: They'll be playing all of TKOL! Even the weird(er) stuff! And it'll all be in pro-shot, hi-def video!
BAD: ...But they won't be playing any other gigs this year.

care to elaborate? I couldn't even imagine what a Radiohead crowd would be like

Yeah. I know Earnie's a good character, based on his posts over in the psychiatric ward EYKIW. Never said I don't believe him. Just thought it was intriguing that he had the scoop on everybody, and was curious where he got the info.

But scumbo explained a bit about the rumors and all that.

Seems it's all The Twitter's fault. The fuckin' Twitter. The modern plague.

It was like the At Ease forums incarnate: rude, uncouth, and disinterested in a self-congratulatory sort of way.

I've finally found time to listen to the album, a few times over. There's nothing to hate about it, even Thom Yorke's voice, which for me was always a stumbling block with Radiohead, sounds relaxed and lovely here, but I don't think I'll want to revisit the album much in the future. It's very pretty and full of neat interesting details but it sounds like it's made up of songs that, on other albums, would be propping up real standout tracks, which are missing here though Lotus Flower comes close.
