[20 Jul 2007|02:14pm]

read this, its hilarious!!! and also, if anyone's interested, go here for some free good music.

Talent is a frail and unpredictable human quality, one men have built empires on being able to identify. More often than not, a record label will be deluged by thousands of would-be Huey Lewises, all clamoring for their attentions. Just as often, these aspiring balladeers lack the talent that agents search for, and so the music industry must continue its relentless quest, cracking open young artists like eggs in hopes of finding that sweet, sticky, yellow, high-protein yolk that is talent.

However, every once in a long while, lightning strikes. Like a brush from the hand of God, a monumentally talented and heretofore unknown individual is brought to the attention of the world through the workings not of the music industry, but rather Destiny itself. Such was the case at Tuesday night’s Radiohead concert in San Diego. Yes, readers, I am proud to announce the discovery of a remarkably fresh and dynamic talent, a singer of such virtuosity and flair that I have no doubt she will soon rise to the top of the musical pantheon. Ladies and Gentleman, may I present: The tipsy middle-aged woman who wouldn’t stop singing every song at the top of her lungs and stood right next to me for the entire concert.

Now, I had never seen Radiohead live before Tuesday. And, I must admit, I have still not seen them live in some sense, so captivated was I by the majesty and effortless talent of this ingenue, this genius of musicality. Friends had pumped me up for the event, telling me that seeing Radiohead in concert would “change my life.” Little did they know how right they would be, and yet how wrong.

Now, don’t misunderstand: Radiohead are indeed enormously talented. Frontman Thom Yorke was sullenly charismatic and brooding, the guitar work was excellent, and the set generous and remarkably tight. Radiohead have long been on the forefront of modern music innovation, and from the sounds of the new songs they played, their upcoming album will be no different. It’s not their fault they failed to shine that night; in the presence of a goddess, mortals cannot but pale and whither.

And don’t think for a second that this woman merely sang. No, my friends, singing is a talent many possess. This woman did much more, actually improving upon Thom Yorke’s own famously virtuoso singing and lyrical content. Where he would take the high note, she would alternate low to high, or break voice altogether and begin to laugh drunkenly, adding a whole new layer of meaning to “Karma Police” that had before lain dormant in the clumsy (albeit well-meaning) hands of Yorke and company.

How did she handle new songs, you ask? Well, like you, I expected the middle-aged woman standing right behind me to stop her cacophonous orations during the times Radiohead were presenting a new, previously unheard song. But no! She soldiered on, waiting only a bar or two to get the jist of the piece before adding her own auditory adornments in the forms of beats, vocal riffs, scat, and at one point a three-minute, wordless, amelodical moan that can only be described as heaven.

So innately did she understand musical conventions that she even ventured to predict entire verses of Radiohead’s new songs. Where Yorke would sing:

Has the light gone out for you?/
Cause the light's gone for me/
You can fight it like a dog/
And they brought me to my knees

She would sing (improvising, mind you):

Do you want another beer?/
Cause I want another beer/
You can figure it da da dog/
La something da da to my kneeeeees

Needless to say, complex and moving as Yorke’s lyrics may be, this woman represents an entirely new stage of musical evolution. I recommend any record label CEO that regularly reads my reviews (and I can think of three right now) go out immediately and try to find this woman. I never caught her name, but I last saw her husband dragging her out of the crowd area by the throat to the jeers and verbal threats of violence of people around her. I have no idea where their hostility came from (my guess: jealousy), but just like that, the goddess had departed, plucked like a delicate flower from the humble garden that was Radiohead’s San Diego concert. Onstage, Yorke was just finishing “Exit Music,” a song with the repeated last refrain “we hope that you choke, that you choke.” The irony in the air was palpable, and it’s a bittersweet taste I will forever savor.

Fly homeward, angel. You are this month’s Profile in Excellence.

Radiohead merch for sale [31 May 2007|10:29pm]
Sorry for the off-topic posting ...

I've collected a lot of Radiohead merchandise such as posters/tshirts that were never worn. And I'm about to move again and I'm trying to declutter and take as little with me as possible.

Prices are negotiable. I could setup the transaction as a private auction on ebay to ensure safety and things like that.

Here's what I have:
Radiohead "Hail to the thief" shirt

Radiohead girls size small open back grey tshirt (from last year's tour)


Radiohead xendless xubria poster

Radiohead xendless xurbia tour poster

Hey [07 Jan 2007|08:39pm]

Unfortunately, I have not seen Radiohead live yet =/. Hopefully they will do a tour when their new album comes out (looking forward to it)

And I was slightly dissapointed with Thom's solo album, I thought it would be more experimental but alot of the songs sounded similar to Radiohead classics, like Packt like Sardines and Idioteque.

Anyway, Radiohead may play Glastonbury... so hopefully I can get tickets - actually that should be my new years resolution!

This is my story. How about yours? [09 Dec 2006|12:28pm]

This was the first time I ever saw Radiohead on TVIt was a long time agoCollapse )
I thought it was decent song, but this isn't where I fell in love with them. I'm not that OG. Actually, I bought this album Pablo Honey and I really didn't like it. It still is my least favorite. Then The Bends came out and I got it too, as a gift. It was better, but I still wasn't convinced(although now It's got some of my favorite tracks on it). When they overplayed Fake Plastic Trees I wanted not much to do with this band. Now, that's one of my favoite songs. Then the Romeo+Juliet Soundtrack came out with "Talkshow Host" on it. I was loved that song. I was thinking, "This is the 'creep' band, really?" Then of course they put out OK Computer and I was in love. I still feel wonderful when I listen to it. I still get butterflies in my stomach, and I can remember the first time I heard it like I'm still there. The first few notes of "Airbag" still make my hair stand up a little. Nothing has ever made me feel like that. Seriously, it was like being kissed by a new lover for the first time. Music hasn't sounded the same to me since.

Thom seems so self conscious. I guess I would be too if I was at the MTV spring break bullshit.

Now, granted, I'm a bit crazy for this band. I'm interested to hear other people's stories.

Anyone willing to sell me ONE ticket to tomorrow's Greek Theatre show in Los Angeles??? It would rule...(MAYBE TWO?)

I would go for face value...or maybe another 10 extra bucks.

Wow [26 Jun 2006|02:34pm]

I saw my first Radiohead concert on the 25th, and it was amazing. I have a review of the show up on my LJ if you want to check it out. Just totally superb. I only know the songs off of there albums, not the singles, so I heard a lot of new songs for me actually. I know they aren't new, is all I am saying. The actual new songs were glorious. I think I almost died hearing both 2+2=5 AND MYxomatosis. Just awesome

I am still in shock, seriously

(climbed up the walls)

i can't believe it, [26 Jun 2006|10:06am]

radiohead is tonight, i have my ticket and everything. i woke up this morning with blisters in my mouth/throat and a terrible fever. i cried for about an hour, because i've been waiting to go to this radiohead show forever... i decided my health is important so i am now selling my ticket.

it's general admission for tonight in san diego, i have ONE ticket i bought for 37 + 17 for taxes and all of that... ultimately making it 54... however i'll most likely sell it to you for cheaper.

any buyers?
contact me: aim: Cmurduuuh

thank you.

i only really care for kid a and amnesiac. ok computer, each song is like a blow out 'this is it!' which makes the album pretentious. there are great songs on ok computer but i can't listen to the album as a whole on headphones like i can kid a and amnesiac which are both much more balanced
