    I warned you!

    I need to stop letting my mom take me to the movies. She has TERRIBLE taste.

    I'm just glad that I talked her into Spiderwick last time.

    But that 10,000 BC thing... ugh... racist tripe.

    I didn't see the flag or check the bio. But I noticed the accents pretty quick. I might be a useful intelligence asset. Hmmmm.

    So hey.

    Is it considered a mental illness to hate repetitious patterns?

    Also: Is the 1st chapter of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man supposed to be really really lame, or is it just the first book ever to use that really really lame collection of high school writing tricks, and everyone else just horribly abused it?

    Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. Yet all of this would simply be showmanship if the songs weren't strong in themselves, and OK Computer is filled with moody masterpieces, from the shimmering "Subterranean Homesick Alien" and the sighing "Karma Police" to the gothic crawl of "Exit Music (For a Film)." OK Computer is the album that establishes Radiohead as one of the most inventive and rewarding guitar rock bands of the '90s.

    What was the last Radiohead song you heard on the radio or saw on MTV?
    It's been a long time since Creep.
    While they have do have the huge fan base of a "popular" band, I still wouldn't call them that.
    They're very talented and put real effort into their music, and that sets them aside from the "Nickelback" style bands.

    Um, yeah...I used to like radiohead, then I developed as a musician and realized how contrived and lame their music is. What a prime example of a band playing "left handed just because they can". Get with it folks. Radiohead is a top 40 band....(yes, they are on the chart at your local crappy record chain). It seems to me that the only people who "get" their music are people who can't play instruments....and yes everyone I know who can make music and listens to radiohead is a shitty musician. It's been years man. Radiohead have always been such a huge hype machine, and you bought it. It's like everyone here can't seem to see that the only reason they think radiohead is genius is because their record label told them so. Just because someone can work a synthesizer doesn't make them gods of rock. They'll earn due respect when they stop being so pretentious, and start playing music.
    This almost sums up my sentiments.
