    Someone has never listened to hail to the thief.

    I can really think of no area, from their melodies to their lyrics to their originality in composition (optimistic uses a god damn super-lydian progression!) to their god damn instrumentation and synth patching, in which I can find any way to really say that Radiohead is anything less than good. They are no longer my favorite band, but they are pretty god damn good.

    On the other hand, CIA boys love them some Russian-speakers.

    Yes, Putin has been rearing his head over the horizon more often lately.

    That dude's interesting. I'm curious to find out exactly what the iron content of his fist is. Also I am curious as to how much of his public persona is sincere: traditionally, despots have made no efforts to censor their attitudes, however terrible they might be, but I imagine that for modern Russia's Prime Minister the situation has evolved somewhat, so I'm really curious as to how he really feels about such statements he has made as (to paraphrase) "Anyone who does not miss the Soviet Union has no heart. Anyone who wants it back has no brain."

    But is the opportunity to be briefed by the CIA on the Russian power structure and being paid to construct psychological analyses on it worth actually learning the damn language? I don't know. I just don't know.

    Some of their best songs are on it. But I think that the album itself is not as good as OK Computer, Kid A, or In_Rainbows

    Muse fans look down on Radiohead fans just as much.

    Nocturne, you obviously aren't a real fan then.

    Like I said, there are plenty of upbeat songs by Radiohead.

    It might just be that you like music which dictates to you the feelings you wish you had (lol all music should be fast or fun), in which case your vapidity should be execrated, and not a musical presentation.

    It was sort of a comment to Podly where he used a bunch of big words to describe why radiohead is good, and since they were big words I figured I'd say something like you see above and hope for the best.

    Radiohead will put you into a diabetic coma because it's so sweet.

    I don't like Radiohead or Muse.

    They might both be great bands though. Saying "I don't like x" and "x is horrible" are not the same thing for me.

    This is true

    Edit: Actually I really don't have a favorite

    Any given day I can like Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, or In Rainbows more than the rest (OK Computer doesn't do quite as much for me)

    Woooo time to go home.

    But in the meantime one thing: Was just looking through the subset of mp3s I have at work and just have to ask all you youngin's on the board: what the fuck happened to music after circa 2000 or so? Did the shenanigans in Florida traumatize the fuck out of this country so bad that nearly everyone suddenly forgot how to rock?

    Ok, so the Gorillaz kick ass and I'm sure there are a few other isolated points of light but it seems like a whole lotta crap from where I'm standin'. Where is the Filter, Toadies, Nirvana, Collective Soul, Porno For Pyros, STP, Pearl Jam, Dead Milkmen, Our Lady Peace, Bare Naked Ladies, Presidents of the United States of America, Primitive Radio Gods, Splashdown or motherfukin' Sound Garden for this decade?

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    In today's episode of the Soccer History Reading List, consider Cercle Brugge of Belgium and their unique approach to disputed calls:
    Wikipedia wrote:
    In the 1943 season, a remarkable incident happened. When referee De Braeckel annulated 2 Cercle goals for unclear reasons and validated an Anderlecht offside goal, Cercle supporters were so mad that referee De Braeckel had to flee. Two Cercle supporters proposed to the Cercle Brugge board to give the referee a ride to the Bruges railway station, which the board accepted. But instead of doing so, these two supporters drove towards Zedelgem and threw ref De Braeckel out of their car in the middle of nowhere. As a result, Cercle had to play one match behind closed doors.
    Please recall that this happened in Belgium, during World War 2.

    I have a blog. In the near future, I will also have a Kickstarter to get my club-soccer book up and running. I will let you know when I will start demanding all your money.

    Well, the Toadies just put out an album this year

    PUSA toured this year

    Local H is still alive and putting out fantastic records and playing better live shows than any other band on the planet

    Bare Naked Ladies in no way fits with the rest of that list
