If I had to choose one song to sum up everything I hate about Radiohead after ‘Ok Computer”, that song would be “Treefingers” off of Kid A.
Jeff Harrell has a great post about a charity called War Kids Relief. Check it out and give if you can.
If you purchased a kitten on the day that Use Your Illusion I & II arrived in stores, it’s probably dead by now.

I hear some comments aren’t being posted. There is something really wrong with my spam blocker and I hope to have it resolved shortly.
My father called me last night and was all worked up after having heard on the radio that freed US hostage Jill Carroll was praising her captors and their treatment of her. Turns out, her praise was recorded by her captors prior to her release. No one can fault her for saying anything she needed to say in order to remain alive.
“It seems this interview was being conducted under duress,” Bergenheim said. “When you’re making a video and having to recite certain things with three men with machine guns standing over you, you’re probably going to say exactly what you’re told to say.”
It is what she will say now that she is back safely that will really count. She’s not off to the greatest start, admittedly, but give the woman some leeway, please, she’s been through a lot and it is not uncommon to identify with your captors. We’ll see where she ends up, let’s go easy on her until then.

“I, for one, am inclined to think that the best way to treat it is with a certain amount of contempt.”
