  1. album preorders up! https://store-us.thesmiletheband.com/ sorry just realised thats only the us store. don't have a link for other, but surely someone will supply.
  2. they covered joe jackson?! what??!!
  3. so Jonny and Thom, and a new drummer. song is interesting, seems a bit murky sounding but that may just be my speakers atm. hm hmmm
  4. as far as i can tell skuj is not banned. maybe something is glitchy for him.
  5. i pre-ordered it. and the book thingy. still a fan. edit - wow i earned a newbie badge for making this post! huzzah!
  6. dude please stop deleting your posts. its either wall of text or a little emoticon that means you deleted it when someone called you on it
  7. i like to play amnesiac when i'm driving. especially at night. just is really really good then.
  8. still love amnesiac, and kid a. they flip flop regularly about which i prefer. haven't listened to either in awhile, but when i think "do i feel like listening to rh right now?" those 2 are the ones i want to hear the most.
  9. well sure your tastes change. thats my point - nothing wrong with the music, its you that changed. i still enjoy that album, but tbh i don't listen to any band much these days. lately its all classical. but i still consider rh one of my favorite bands. don't think i'd consider myself a 'stan', quite. i don't know, i don't like to over analyze music, though i appreciate when i do realize something profound has occurred. its more of an emotional connection, i think. which, thank god, is one reason i don't have to analyze it to feel it. i do like what Bjork said there, and what she's saying may be a universal thing that a lot of artists go through, and fans of artists go through, but at the same time it's personal how you go through it. what you take from the things you hear and like and find meaningful or exciting, and then move beyond that.
  10. do you even like radiohead, tho? it seems like most things you post are how much you really really hate them. interesting to look at that review of an album that was the latest thing the band had done at that time, and then all these thing like king of limbs and in rainbows came later, and it changed your perspective of kid a. like its just a constant evolution of your thinking on things you experience in life. who knows if anythings good or bad, what you think when you heard it in 2000 and then later 2020, its like it must be totally different music. but of course, it isn't. its you thats changed.
  11. so, today the New Yorker reprinted a Nick Hornby 'essay' about kid a, not sure why they don't want to call it a review, which it essentially is. "Beyond the Pale". It's so weird to read things that were written about this band 20 years ago, and man - 20 YEARS AGO! honestly, i didn't really listen to radiohead then, didn't start til a year or so later than that with amnesiac. it wasn't anything i read about them that made me want to hear them, certainly not this thing by nick hornby. he did say enough good things about them that they would seem intriguing, i suppose. but the thing came across like a very self conscious thing, like he really wanted you to know he was judging them, not a fanboy at all, no, even if he did devote a whole paragraph to creep. and he did not like kid a much at all. which is just bizarre to me. just kind of weird reading it these days.
  12. what is your other account name? but actually, that's something only an admin can do so I suggest you send Jonathan a pm
  13. i used to use italics for that. and back in the day you could make the text color grey or the text smaller to indicate it was meant as a whisper.
  14. well, you read a post and maybe sometimes it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. sometimes you smile. thats how you like a post.
  15. yea got this notification and haven't had time yet to properly peruse, just bookmarked it for later. should be pretty cool
  16. hey i been ugly crying for 2 years. more. nghgh
  17. no lie i feel like i've been in a serious funk ever since the 2016 election - and I mean the whole year of 2016 with all the campaigns and bs flung far and wide, it was just a big depressing clusterfuck. and everything suffered for that. everything. everyone i know has been depressed. every social media thing i did went quiet. bands stopped making music. birds stopped tweeting. turtles stopped turtling. everything seemed to go into this big cocoon of "wtf has happened and why won't it end?" i would be very happy to return to a better time and a bunch of nice radiohead albums would make a big difference.
  18. I know that fan sites and message boards aren't really a thing these days. I don't know how it is for newer bands - if they have this kind of fan community stuff somewhere. surely they must. people will still want to talk about their favorite bands with others who share their enthusiasm. only the methods of doing so change. on mt, everybody went to slack. but people have been saying rh is getting ready to disband for as long as I've been here. 3 albums, umpteen solo projects, and however many tours later, still hasn't happened. it could, obviously. nothing lasts forever. tho I don't really know why they'd need to. as it is they each go off and do their own thing in between rh stuff, and it all works out. i hope they never formally disband - that always comes across as a negative, like they don't want to work together anymore, or can't get along or something. there's this view that they're all old friends from school, extended family, and that's pretty nice to think about. better than it being just a business to them.
