  1. I think Radiohead is partly to blame for this because of their lack of presence. In the past, they would always stay connected by posting cryptic and creative things. They did keep our attention for a couple of long years during the lull between HTTT and In Rainbows and that was pretty fascinating. Whether the album was years away, we had something to keep us busy with but now Radiohead official site is a boring mess. They aren't even trying anymore. All we have left is Thom complaining about this or that on his twitter account and Stanley promoting whatever art project he has going on his instagram. And it's mostly just more drawings of trees. He is really milking it. Digital download killed off the fun of purchasing music. There was something really special about getting into your car and heading out to your local music store and buying an album. Now, I can just sit on the toilet and purchase an album over my smart phone. Kid A was the last truly great album purchasing experience for me because it was an event. That was in the fall of 2000. 18 years ago.
  2. Do you still have the will and energy left to muster up any excitement for it? Do you anticipate it? It's just not there for me anymore. I've been there anticipated each new albums up until AMSP but LP10, I just don't feel it. You know how it is when we wait for information about a new Radiohead album. Every little thing that comes out of the wood work. We would eat it up regarding a new Radiohead album. It's gone. Days gone by. It's not the same anymore. Frankly, it's not fun anymore. It feels sad and lonely actually that we're at the end of Radiohead's lifespan. And it's not really just about LP10 or Radiohead, it's about the community we all shared years and years ago once upon a time for a band we all love and appreciate. And I hate to see it go away. I'm not just speaking for Mortigi Tempo or Atease or any other Radiohead forums. I'm speaking for all forums because it's not just here that is dying. It is dying everywhere. I truly do believe LP10 will be Radiohead's last album. Shit, it would be on a bum note if they ended it on AMSP because that is one hell of a depressing album. So, make it LP10 and we'll call it a wrap. We've all enjoyed the ride and we've all grown older together loving this band. LP10 will mark the first Radiohead album where I'm not anticipating it. Back in 2005, I would work myself up with excitement thinking about LP7. Dead Air Space. And that damn 'In The Shed' post. And anytime Stanley post something, everyone would go wild with speculation. We're coming to the end of the road here. Radiohead aren't going to make 17 albums so LP10 is a perfect even number.
  3. I would say any T-Shirts that came from the Kid A era. Those were the best and very hard to find nowadays. So if you have a Radiohead T-Shirt that were purchased during the Kid A era, consider it super rare.
  4. I remember the bustling days of Radiohead fandom where everyone was starting up some kind of Radiohead fansites in the early to mid 2000's. Of course the big two were Green Plastic and At Ease (no longer active). And then there were smaller sites like Follow Me Around(No longer active) And too many other numerous ones to list that are either gone, or just sitting there like Treefingers.com like ghost town. If you want to see an eerie website, go to Treefingers.com. It is still up after all these years and the last update was in March of 2006. The message board was overrun by bots and it finally died out. Doesn't it cost money to run a site? how is this site still up for twelve years? Even here on Mortigi Tempo, it seems to be dying out. I thought the death of Atease would send some of its active members to come flooding in but even the community there was quite dead as well. All of the older members of RH communities have grown older and the younger kids aren't into forums as they are Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. It was fun while it lasted and also a little depressing now that Radiohead are close to calling it quits. They're not going to do this forever. One more album at best. Two if we're hopeful. Asking for five more would be a pipe dream.
  5. Joey Waronker is touring with Roger Waters? Can you imagine the awkwardness and the conversation they're both having after each show. Roger: Joey, how's it like being in a band with that egotistical dip shit Thom? Joey: Umm... Roger: Do you agree with his stance on Palestine and siding with the Jews? Joey: Uhhhh, ummmmm....Roger, I ...uhhh Roger: It's okay, you can speak your mind. Thom Yorke is a douche bag. Joey: Ahhh, ummm....uhhh... Roger: Why are you in his band anyway? Joey: Ummmm...uhhhh... Roger: OK Computer is a great album but I only like three songs off of it. Joey: Ummmm....I need to go to the bathroom, Roger. I
  6. Radiohead sounds absolutely nothing like R.E.M. Thom just happens to be a good friend of Michael Stipe and that is all.
  7. It's not going to sound like that on the album because Radiohead will turn it into some electronic trickery. I love the Banjo and the organic sound of the song. I want an Organic Radiohead album where it's full on just live sounding without any studio trickery. I wish Radiohead were more into releasing an acoustic/live version of their songs in addition but I can't fault them for not wanting to. That live version without all the drunken hollering of Gagging Order was so damn warm and beautiful. Why can't Nigel or somebody capture that in soundboard quality and release it. I would buy it in a heartbeat.
  8. I wonder if this particular part of the highway will now be recognized as an iconic structure. This is such a random and weird discovery. It's like one in a million isn't it really?.
  9. I feel like too much weight was added behind this idea that one our greatest living band of our generation is out there supporting apartheid or some shit just because they happened to be one our greatest living band of this generation. Same shit would have applied to The Beatles should they have to go play somewhere where the political climate of that country was in a toss up. Radiohead playing in Israel is not the same as Radiohead playing in front of a crowd of Hitler and his armies. I believe Radiohead are playing for their fans that just happens to live inside a country where there are political turmoils. I wouldn't want to be have to deal with being punished for living inside a country where our political leaders can't get this shit together or that there long running issues between borders. If there is hope, I would take it. Imagine if bands outside of the U.S. refuse to play here because of Trump. It's asinine.
  10. The amount of hate toward Tinker is Sacrilege but hey, it's such a good album, no matter where any of the songs end up, they're all good.
  11. 17 Years spent on a Radiohead message board. 17 years spent as a fan. My RH fandom is about to graduate high school next year. What about you guys. Isn't this nuts. Hey, how soon before we start reaching Led Zepp/Pink Floyd territory or are we already there? Radiohead still relevant. Are they consider geezer rock now or do we have another good ten years away.
  12. But the price tag wasn't for Ill Wind. You're getting an awesome limited Edition Vinyl Booklet.
  13. Where is this from? Why does Thom look so old?
  14. Anyone here wish to relive the joy and anticipation of waiting for LP9 again? I miss it because it came so suddenly and there was just so much to process. That morning I woke up in bed and saw that Bluebird on the Instragram just chirping away... That sound is forever ingrain in my head. And then came the actual audio of the witch tied to tree as masked men dances around her. Good times back then.
  15. His album is going to heavily influenced by Brazilian Carnival music but I don't think it's going to be too on the nose.
  16. Every single time anything RH album Post-OKC gets a 10 year anniversary, I get sadder and sadder but I forgot that we're fast approaching OKC's 20th anniversary. God damn.
  17. I refuse to believe Ed can't come up with ten reasonable tracks to fill an album with. He's the master of mood, texture, and ambient in his own right. I would love to have an album of just ambient craziness from Ed and maybe a couple of songs where he actually sings on it as well.
  18. A majority of AMSP tunes mixed in with various past favorites (except Creep) and maybe at some point during the tour, a new song that will go on to fester for another 7 years before its shows up on an album.
  19. I wouldn't buy it for $100 but if I were far above my means and could afford it like it were just loose change then I would definitely buy it. What is $100 to Brad Pitt or Norman Reedus or Daniel Craig? These guys are Radiohead fans they would buy one just to have. Just to have. Just to have. Just to have. Just to have. Whatever you sell it as. You gotta be kidding me. It's just to have just to have just to have Whatever you say it is Sorry. I couldn't help myself.
