Thom Yorke and I even share a birthday. Not that that makes me more of a fan, just makes me kinda a nerd for even reading his biography. Which the Wikipedia page & the Radiohead blog (Dead Air Space) are more engrossing than what should be a riveting book. But today being a gloomy week in LA, which always makes everyone think about life, pay a little more attention to the music they are listening to, and maybe even see colors a little brighter since the gray gives such a great background to every color... I'm starting a rant here.
The point of this was, hmm.
Oh right, it was mainly for me to say that I adore them.
I'm listening to OK Computer on vinyl, right after finishing the Eraser (not Radiohead, but Thom Yorke), and truly. They are geniuses.
Somehow it always seems to be the soundtrack to my life. It has a funny way of being the every-moment band. Maybe its the poetic lyrics, the haunting sound of his voice, the layers of progressions, the steady beat, or maybe that's exactly what music is supposed to be.
"Music - The one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend."-Ludwig van Beethoven
Oof, I think I had another point entirely.
But that's enough for today.
Time to flip the record.
