Towering Above The Rest

I’ve always been a Radiohead fan, per se, but at the same time, I’ve always felt that the mainstream media over-hyped them to the point of making them out to be the Messiah of rock music. It frustrated me to no end about their so-called “innovations,” which to me, was nothing new. A little too much dick sucking in the media really created a backlash for my appreciation of this band, in the past.

Regardless, there is something critically beautiful with the song Airbag the moment the bass guitar comes in with it’s lines. Holy moly. It’s bombastic. A lot of the time, restraint and what is not played is what is most beautiful in music for me.

And why they never recorded a studio version of Lift, a song they played in the mid to late 90s, is beyond me. That song was a simple masterpiece.

Terri Schiavo – We Just Want More Michael Jackson

I feel as if I want to write something really profound and heartfelt here about Terri Schiavo. But I am repulsed by the media frenzy and the involvement with the American Government. For chrissakes, let her freaking go in peace. Actually I am not too compelled to write much about it. I’ll spare you. I just want it to be over. For her sake. I’d never want to live like that. Plus, she’s totally taking away the spotlight from the Michael Jackson case.

And what the hell is the deal with the people handing out the Washington Post Express at the Metro. It’s like you are completely accosted when you come out of the Metro with those people. At least give away candy or something.
