And heaven forbid if someone talks about something SLIGHTLY off topic in a thread about the same band.
i didn't so sue me.. I was just trying to condense the number of RH threads down to one or two..Clearly the thread about thom yorke's new album deserves it's own thread. And I am new to this forum so I was unaware of the subforum back in the day..now that has been mentioned I wish we still had it..

and for the something off topic it was more along the lines of" I hate these kinds of threads" not having anything to do with the band.. just to stir things up is more the reason.. and as I have said everyone has a right to voice their own opinion I just wonder why they would waste space in a thread they supposedly hate..

thing is, this actually just adds to the clutter. the existing radiohead threads - the ones on this page anyway - have specific topics pertaining to radiohead. tour stuff is in the 'i'm seeing radiohead in philly' thread. i think the new song stuff could be a part of that one as well, but i guess some people prefer it in a separate thread. and as you said, the thom yorke album has its own thread. but this one's just a free for all. so if someone has radiohead news and decides to put it in the first radiohead thread he or she finds, the people who are actually looking for that news would either miss it or would have to sift through pages and pages of whatever to find it. i can't see it being helpful to anyone who's looking for specific information on what's going on with the band

i think those of us that have said that these kinds of threads are unnecessary are pointing out WHY it is that we think so. the discussion of radiohead in this forum is second only to U2. and since this is a U2 site, U2 discussion is categorized accordingly: a tour forum, a news forum, a picture forum, etc. since we can't really do that with radiohead, the best that we can do is keep the radiohead topics in separate threads. and i'm not saying to start a new topic for every single little thing. like mofo said, there is leeway in most of the threads. but to glom everything together into one radiohead thread is akin to merging all the U2 forums together and then trying to find specific information.

anyway, thanks for reminding me that i have a right to voice my opinion, and then calling my opinion a waste of space.

whatever. have fun with your thread.

Wasn't their once a Radiohead forum at Interference? I'm guessing Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief kind of tainted that............or the fact that there's a Radiohead site done by the authors of Interference?

But yeah, despite the last two albums being dreadful, I really like The Eraser and have high hopes for the full band's next outing.

I guess you didn't see my note to the mods to merge the 2 radiohead threads that I started that are on the first page of this forum. So, all this clutter is up to them if it were an issue they would close and merge the threads. But I think that the point of this forum is that it is a "general music discussion" forum so this maybe the reason for the clutter..

As for someone who has RH news to post or is looking for it. They are gonna go to an RH website/message board first for that. Logically that would be what most people do. So coming here would be a second source or third in my guess. (This is what I do and some others here as well). And I am not saying that they have to post here for god's sake. If they post in another thread oh well. But if the mods choose to merge the threads here then their posts will go here.

other than yourself, no one is pointing out why these threads are unnecessary, meaning giving an explanation for it.. To me it sounds like they are just trying to stir things up. They are stating their opinions and so are you. And me saying that why post here if you don't like these threads is stating my opinion. To each his own. Let's just leave it at that.

ok, again.. this is a general music discussion forum which means that it pertains to all music not just U2. And for RH being second to U2 in this forum well, people are not gonna come here first for stuff pertaining to U2 (tour news, album news, and pics and stuff relating to the guys) there are forums for that as you have stated. I am not trying to create a RH Forum here just trying to bring down some of the clutter. Just attempting to be helpful and if it doesn't do that oh well the thread will just recede to the back of the forum then (mainly trying to condense the two threads I started into one really).
I certainly don't see how this is akin to merging all U2 forums into one. I never said or intended to merge all RH threads just certain ones.

thanks for the heated discussion..

So ...let's all continue to enjoy the thread while its still here shall we.. I certainly was.

Damn. "I hate threads like this, so I'm going to write three paragraphs about why I hate it, rather than ignore it."

Anyway, Last night's show was better than Tuesday's. Fucking great!!!

Two questions from me (I still consider myself new to the Radiohead addiction):

1. The drummer, Phil? Is he the best drummer ever, or am I on crack?

2. I want to read a good book about Radiohead this summer. Something akin to Flanagan's book. What should I go buy with my giftcards?

Ah, Larry is a pretty good drummer too.

Thanks for that book suggestion, Xavi. I recently read another one. It had that picture of Thom Yorke that Zoomerang is using for his avatar on the cover. I think it's called Radiohead: Hysterical and Useless, but I'm not sure. It was good, though.
