Radiohead boxed set...

Cha-ching!

I'm sure this is the record company's doing. Looks cool, but obviously not worth whatever they're going to charge for it if you already have everything.

Who's going to buy that though?

Obviously rabid fans of the band already have most, if not all, of the music in that set and you don't want to give a casual fan an expensive box set that they may or may not like.

I don't know, a 2-disc Best Of would have been more conducive for the Chri$tma$ buy.

I much prefer the Amnesiac CryingMonster flash drive, and I'm preparing a gig-by-gig comparison to explain why.

(no one else thinks these jokes are funny, do they?)

Sometimes it's more about the attempt, really, than the results.

Wouldn't touch that set with a deathbear-shaped pole. I smell a greatest hits on the horizon...

allow me to make myself clear on one thing. anytime a deathbear is produced, i'm truly excited.

however...

this is the LAMEST... LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMESSSSSSSST thing i have heard in AGES.

so many caps... i must be serious or something.

i mean this is worse than a greatist hits package. what's EMI thinking?

couldn't they have put any proper thought into this? i mean honestly, who will this appeal to?? anyone??

Part of me is dying to get these digipacks, even if HATE digipacks, because of the words "limited edition"!

Ah, happy to. I didn't know myself until a few months ago. Apparently it originates in the slang "owned". You own someone means you "have eomething over them" in an honor-like way. Then someone mistyped the world as "PWN" and apparently Moby mentioned it in a lyric, and people started writing "pwned" whenever they had an opportunity to humiliate someone. Pretty silly and fraternity-ish to me.

Apparently, Radiohead have confirmed they weren't part of the idea at all.

This thread lost me at 'hello.'

And I don't buy that definition of 'pwned' at all.
