My crackhead theory on the name of the most recent Radiohead record.

 

****WARNING***** 

I am a drug addict, therefore i discuss things through my chemically altered perspective. If this gets me banned so be it, but censorship should be a crime and is the purest form of oppression.

 

A moon shaped pool - for those of you experienced in all things chemical (or if you simply live within the city limits of los angeles), you may have tried crystal. since crystal provides an expanded attention span one can get to thinking of rather odd things and start connecting dots that dont necessarily exist......

 

the bowl of a meth pipe, when the product has recrystallized, looks remarkably similar to the cover of the new Radiohead album. people that have never tried will scoff, however, for those that have, a light BULB might have just gone off. look up the two pictures side by side (or just close your eyes and remember the good ole days out in san bernardino)

 

i guess ill spell this part out too.... a meth pipe does in fact contain, a moon shaped pool of liquid product when heated to its boiling point. 

 

two dots, connected by a radiohead fan that has all but disappeared completely. 

 

corresponding from the edge, your welcome.

 

over and out.

I'll watch when my phones not about to die and I'm not ubering to pick up. Priorities.

 

The universe has dropped my dream girl in my lap, while she is vacationing, I was challenged to give the ole crystal the kick. My good ole boys in Radiohead would have been a nice distraction. Instead I found cheap sex online and spent the weekend chasing Radiohead tix in a bdsm dungeon with a roided out bisexual power lifter. She was actually a sweetheart but k wouldn't dare upset her.

 

The right choice? Obviously not. This is what disappearing is all about. Hopefully my dream girl has patience and understanding. Hopefully I get shocked out of my dream(less) state.

Idk where this thread is going and its messing with my suburban sensibilities. So I'm just going to pretend that every post after the first one didn't happen.

 

The idea that Amsp is related to drugs is interesting. I don't know if I'm on board with it being about meth or any particularly hard drugs. It's possible though - maybe.

 

The whole "a moon shaped pool" line - I've not really seen to many other ideas.

I mean it wouldn't be by any means - Thoms first lyrics relating to drug usage. However, I think that he's been pretty candid in stating his usage of drugs was mostly in the realm of pills.

 

So it's not crazy to think maybe Amsp is related to drugs. Again, I just have a hard time believing it's about meth or cocaine. But whatever.

i don't think the album is about meth. but it's interesting when someone sees something coincidental that relates to their life in the music and images.

 

even if it's a meth pipe in the cover art.

ill try to keep my psychosis ramblings on point here. thanks for your patience. (all art is interpreted through ones own perspective, we all warp the meaning to fit ourselves)

 

affluent gay men have been using meth for years, its just now hitting places like london, nyc and europe (its going to hit fucking hard too). its not just for trailer parks and people from iowa anymore. 

 

i often refer to it as the future drug, it will replace everything else. we already know that the elite (CEO's, entertainers,  wall street, that dude 3 cubicles down who shows up first and leaves last) are using it....not to mention all the 5 year olds with a.d.d. that get addicted to it nice and young in the form of adderall (generic name m. amphet salt, just one molecule away from the crystal version). 

 

Quick list of famous fuckers to use it daily: 

marilyn monroe

J.F.K (the same "Dr. Feelgood" supplied both john and marilyn)

Eddie Van Halen (duh!)

Truman Capote

Rufus Wainwright (affluent gay white male, it subverts the culture. do your research people)

Britney Spears (i just found out thats why she shaved her head, to get rid of the evidence for drug testing!)

Everyone in world war 2 and every war after that 

The entire continent of Australia

The country of Mexico and a decent percentage of undocumented kitchen help in california (where do you think i find this shit anyways)

Every DJ youve ever heard

Anyone youve ever seen lose weight rapidly, especially in the public eye....Adele? (i recently lost 50lbs myself)

Not to mention the countless others that have never fessed up or been caught (Mr. Tom Cruise? um...yeah)

The Trans community (of which im part in my addiction, had no interest to prior. h8rz gun h8. totally different conspiracy thread on this one. do you guys know what a prostate is? millions of men have found out within the last couple of years. ask any dominatrix, cam girl or escort. they're getting sick of it)

 

and finally, a totally un-warranted theory (not accusation) about our friend Thom who recently divorced his wife. Remember the thing about the drug hitting europe and affluent gay men? Thom's cheeks are a little sunken in here....

 

*prepares for well deserved backlash. if i'm not thinking this shit up, who is? conspiracies are fun and sometimes true. im just connecting dots bro. its what i do.

[Verse 1]
It holds us like a phantom (meth zombies)
It touches like a breeze (breeze is a common phrase in l.a. to refer to meth)
It shines its understanding (shiny sparkly things is also)
See the moon is smiling
Open on all channels
Ready to receive
Cause we're not at the mercy
Of your chimeras and spells
Your chimeras and spells
Mmmhm

We are of the earth
To her we do return
The future is inside us
It's not somewhere else

It's not somewhere else
It's not somewhere else

[Chorus]
(One day at a time)
One day at a time

[Verse 2]
We call upon the people
The people have this power

The numbers don't decide
Your system is a lie

A river running dry
The wings of a butterfly
And you may pour us away like soup
Like we're pretty broken flowers
We'll take back what is ours
Take back what is ours
 (meth inflates the ego, i rant to fellow tweakers all the time about resisting the fucked up zeitgeist we find ourselves in. Legalizing weed is just another way to dumb all the mother fuckers down. sedentary and happy = conducive to control. energized and self empowered is a problem.)

[Chorus]
One day at a time

 

present tense

 

[Verse 1]

This dance
This dance
Is like a weapon
Is like a weapon
Of self defence
Of self defence
Against the present
Against the present
Present tense

I won't get heavy
Don't get heavy
Keep it light and
Keep it moving
I am doing
No harm
As my world
Comes crashing down
I'll be dancing
Freaking out
Deaf, dumb, and blind
 (im on an island by myself with this shit too brother. i enjoy the freefall)

[Hook]
In you I'm lost
In you I'm lost
 (preach!)

[Verse 2]
I won't turn around when the penny drops
Won't stop now
Won't slack off
 (they tried to make me go to rehab, but i said.... i bet he got an ultamatum from his wife. he was like, its no ones business but mine)
Or all this love
Will be in vain
 (needles?)
Stop from falling
Down a mine

It's no one's business but mine
That all this love
Has been in vain
  (shit, is this dude using needles?)

[Hook]
In you I'm lost
In you I'm lost
In you I'm lost
In you I'm lost
 (im lost too brother)

 

Dreamers

They never learn
They never learn
Beyond the point
Of no return
Of no return
And it's too late
The damage is done
The damage is done
 (niel young for the modern age, have i gone too far to get home?_

[Verse 2]
This goes
Beyond me
Beyond you

A white room
By a window

Where the sun comes
Through

We are
Just happy to serve
Just happy to serve
You

[Outro]

This is kind of the problem I talked about way back when when I stated that people guessing at an artists intent can be a tad dangerous.

 

This guy is now under the impression that Thom Yorke has (had?) a meth addiction. This is bad shit.

 

A slight reason why I think Thom hates posting lyrics to begin with - people's interpretation becomes something akin to gospel or gossip

Stanley made the art while experimenting with how wax/oil/water etc interact which will probably bear a resemblance to how a lot of other liquids of varying viscosities react. Nothing against applying your own meaning, but pretty obvioisly wrong to think it is what was actually intended.

its the intent before the actual experiment. dont think they didnt think that out.

 

as far as assigning meaning, i tried to put a disclaimer that this is through my perspective. thom repeatedly states his lyrics are NOT political/agenda driven, no one seems to listen to him and keep harping on what is obviously their own agenda (or whoever their publications lobbyists agendas are) enough with the eco climate nonsense.LISTEN TO THE MAN! \

 

i think hes just a druggie pulling a fast one on all of his yuppie fuck fans

so it would be really sweet if someone could directly address the points and why they are so off. maybe itll be a reality check for me. due diligence? anyone?

 

if i wasnt gushing my personal demons all over the place would you have less of a reason to completely disregard everything? im giving you the ammo to shoot me. who the fuck actually uses it:?

This, thinking of the implications of water pollution, plus the fact that The Numbers sits in a prominent track spot on the album (which is arguably very environmental in its theme), plus Thom's very public opinions regarding environmentalism lean me away from it being drug references. Though I will never say never.

I agree with all of this except DID is about experiments with homosexuality. Different types of love are possible, if you know what I mean wink wink nudge nudge!
