Is it bad that I'm already thinking of what to order for lunch rather than getting a jump on the mountain of work on my desk?

Nope. I'm already thinking about what I'm going to eat for dinner tomorrow.

Is it strange that every time someone asks me a question today, I want to reply "testicles".

I listened to the first 4 or 5 songs. I liked it well enough, but I miss when they rock out. I love the big build-ups they used to have like in Fake Plastic Trees and Exit Music, even Let Down when you think they're about to fall apart and then they somehow bring it all back together.

Since Kid A they've been more focused on making beautiful noise, which I appreciate, but I don't have the attention span to soak it all in (maybe if I "mellowed out" first.... ) . I love Kid A (Morning Bell has one of those awesome build ups), and I like Amnesiac, but I like the "rock group" radiohead better than the 6 man "symphony with guitars" radio.

Granted, I didn't get 1/2 way through yet, but I'm somewhat disappointed. Though "All I Want" is excellent.



Hey - you ever listen to "Downward is Heavenward" by Hum? It's a brilliant album that only like 293 people bought, most of them in the Champagne-Urbana area. I think you'd like it.

I don't think they'll ever make another The Bends or OK Computer, but, I think this album is their best since. I really like it a lot, especially after the let-down that was Hail to the Thief (disappointment to me, at least).

Beav, I listened to that Hum album you told me to listen to. It's pretty good.

Never heard of Hum... I'll have to give it a try...

I keep forgetting you are not a big U2 fan, I find the new RH the most U2ish of their previous works so I figure allot of people on this board might appreciate it.

hang in there, Reckoner and House Of Cards are beautiful (but not very up tempo so I can't guarantee if you'll like them though)

I'm on House of Cards now, actually. This is excellent. I like the Fish song too. It went from a 6 to a 7.5 in the past few minutes. Maybe the next time through will bring that up.

HUM sang that song "She missed the train to Mars, She's out back counting stars...." but that's on a different album. Downward is Heavenward is the one you want. Read the review below - I think you can listen to snippets as well.

i like this album a lot. i haven't listened to radiohead since highschool. nude is my fav track off the album.

i don't know if i'm quite ready to visit their older stuff just yet, but i'd consider seeing a show when they tour. it'd be interesting to hear these live.

I couldn't think of where else to post this, so I will post it here.

I was at the bar last night with some friend when a minor scuffle broke out between two guys at the end of the bar.

At one point one of the guys yelled, "I will Kunta Kintay your ass motherfucker."

Really? really? Really.

This Radiohead album is taking my general meloncholy mood and steering it towards Depressed. Good fucking album. Second listen definitely better than the first. But I need to cheer the fuck up and put on some Fishbone or some shit.

yeah, it isn't helping my mood either. but sometimes it is nice to find a piece of art that affirms how you're feeling. so i'll submerge myself in it for the time being.

listening to yatta will cheer you up!

Years ago, I actually saw/heard this:

Was at a dive bar, after work, with a lot of coworkers from my retail gig. We were all like 19, 20, but we knew the bar owner, so no problem getting in. Anyway, there were 2 groups of what you'd have called "guidos" back in 1989, hanging out at the bar. A few drinks later, and one from each group started talking shit about the Rangers/Islanders....eventually, it escalates and they are poised to fight. One of these clowns says "do you know who I am????", and the other, much bigger guy says "Yeah, I know who you are....you're DEAD" and he hits him on the top of the head with his beer mug, and then all hell breaks loose. Fun times in Yonkers.
