    Yes, of course.  Be aware . . . . . I added three spaces to the Internet address because I don’t like it when forums (and email websites) take an Internet address (that I have typed) and make it an active link.  I just want the Internet address to be plainly typed letters.  I think adding spaces does that.  I placed the spaces after https and google.  Here’s the Internet address:

    sleepy jack reacted to dagobah in Like Spinning Plates [live] but played like the album version   
    I checked the Radiohead Public Library but I did not find any info about a live version of Like Spinning Plates played using the instruments on the Amnesiac album.  On a separate note . . . . . I finally finished the project I have been working on for about 1 year or so.  I didn't work on it every day or even every week.  I worked on it whenever I had time.  The project was to acquire live versions of every track I like (tracks written and recorded by Radiohead, Atoms For Peace and Thom Yorke solo).  I suspect most forum members have many live versions of tracks.  And they've had them for years.  My situation was different.  I only had a few live tracks when I started this project.
    As everyone knows . . . . . for the most part, most tracks are performed the same way by bands at each concert.  So my first challenge was just to find those typical performances, download them and organize them in my iTunes library.  In addition to that . . . . . I had to search out early live versions of tracks . . . . . or sometimes, only Thom & Jonny performed the track . . . . . or Thom played it all by himself . . . . . . or Thom performed a Radiohead track with Atoms For Peace.  The Citizen Insane website has been a great resource and I'm very grateful it is still available to use.  However, there's no one single database that contains every specific bit of info about different live versions . . . . . so sometimes, it took forever to look for that information at a wide variety of sources.
    Another issue was finding quality recordings.  As everyone knows, there's so many low quality concert recordings out there.  People would claim it sounded "great" . . . . . but then after listening . . . . . . many times I asked myself "What the hell?  That audio recording sounds like crap!"  As everyone here at the forum knows . . . . . the audio taper may be too close to the stage or too far from the stage or their location (in the audience floor) records poor quality audio of vocals but great guitars . . . . . or their location records great vocals but low quality audio of the guitars.  One of my biggest complaints was audience members talking, screaming or whistling while a song was being performed.  Most of the time, I decided not to keep those audio files.
    Another reason this project took me so long was . . . . . . after acquiring the audio files, I spent lots of time editing audio files in order to remove banter from band members (normally Thom, of course).    Obviously, that banter was usually right before tracks start.  And I wanted to remove most of crowd noise from before the music starts and remove most of the crowd noise from after the music ends.  My goal was to focus on the individual music tracks rather than entire concert experiences.  After all this work . . . . . I still couldn't find quality live versions of numerous tracks.  And yes, I know . . . . . some tracks just have not been performed live.
    My next project is listening to all the music that is on the MiniDisks.  I have to decide what's worth keeping.  I suspect I already have some of the music that is on the MiniDisks.  This COVID-19 situation has actually given me a chance to work on these projects.  And I still need to do this same type of live track project for some of my other favorite musical artists (Depeche Mode, U2, The Cure, Coldplay, Neil Young).

    Kildare not Dublin though, Radiohead need to be more accurate with their archiving.

    I noticed a couple of comments in an older thread have heart symbols next to them and it says which user liked them, but this option doesn't seem to be available now.

    sleepy jack reacted to dagobah in Official Anima Thread   
    OK . . . so the above video appears to have the 2 tracks on the B side of the 12-Inch vinyl Record titled Anima (Preview Limited Edition).
    According to the Notes section of the discogs.com page for Anima (Preview Limited Edition):  Given to attendees at the Los Angeles IMAX premiere of the ANIMA short film by Thom Yorke and Paul Thomas Anderson on June 21, 2019.   Also given on select European and North American IMAX screenings on June 26, 2019.   The Alternate Mix of Dawn Chorus is the synth only mix from the movie
    That last sentence does not make sense to me.  It says "the synth only mix from the movie".  I just watched the Anima short film that's posted in this thread.  To me, the version of Dawn Chorus in the Anima short film sounds like the version from the Anima album.  Thom has vocals during Dawn Chorus in both the short film and the album.  Neither is "synth only".
    If the Alternate Mix of Dawn Chorus is synth only . . . . then maybe it's only on the A side of the 12-Inch Vinyl Record titled Anima (Preview Limited Edition).  Does anyone else have a different interpretation?

    this wasn't true for me, which i know because i even had the passwords saved to automatically to be entered in my phone, which didn't work after it came back up and didn't work if i manually entered what i know they were, but anyway i reset this one and that at least worked 
    i appreciate not wanting to let the history die! you've done this community better than whoever ran atease and lost everything by forgetting(?) to pay the bill
    and it's nice to have forum software from this decade that can actually load reliably again and easily embed stuff 😊 hope it doesn't cost you too much
    congrats on the children! ❤️

    Also, this isn't the first time people assumed Radiohead were nearing the end.
    There were so many posts in 2008 talking about how Videotape was their goodbye to their fans and they were going to hang it up after the In Rainbows tour. Didn't happen.
    During the long wait between TKOL and AMSP, lots of people assumed the band would go their separate ways. Again, it didn't happen.
    Five plus years seems to be their standard interval between albums now - so LP10 in 2021, LP11 in 2026, LP12 in 2031 is perfectly plausible.
    I won't believe that Radiohead are going to end until I hear it from the band themselves.
    If you think this is over, then you're (probably) wrong

    All passwords should be the same as you had them. If you can't remember it, you can reset it by using the email that is tied to your account. If for some reason you do not have access to that email (or can't remember it), please feel free to PM me or email (jonathan@greenplastic.com) and I can help. There is an issue with Yahoo email addresses at the moment in that they are not receiving emails from MT. Hopefully that will be resolved soon. 
    I am entertaining selling the greenplastic.com domain but not the site or content (including MT). MT will for now on be at this URL (mortigitempo.com).
