in rainbows

it is now 2 days since the release of in rainbows and i'm on listen 5 or 6 i think. its solid gold radiohead and i'm loving it. there's more to hear in every listen.

the experiment seems to have paid of as well as the current estimate for downloads is..........1.2 million. aswell as that more people paid the £40 to pre-order the boxset of vinyl and cd than pre-ordered the download on the first day this service was available. so all in all radiohead are sitting pretty. and why not. they are at a level where they can generate buzz without any need for a record company to do the job for them and then take a slice of the profits.

james blunt has decided to make a little statement on the issue. saying “I definitely think there is value in music. I don’t think they should devalue it. I’ve got to pay a band, a producer & a mixer. I don’t know how I’d necessarily pay them if I sold my albums for 1p. I’d have to work it out, but maybe they know how this works in practice.”

missing the point entirely that not being talentless oiks like himself radiohead are able to produce, record and mix and album themselves. i guess he's just worried he'll have to sell his yacht to pay for his next album or dreary dreary songs.

New Sony Bravia Ad Rips off Illustrator Duo Kozyndan

New Sony Bravia Ad Rips off Illustrator Duo Kozyndan: "

From here.

‘Its hard to think that people at Passion Pictures did not have this early panoramic of ours in mind when they created this new spot for the SONY Bravia line.

To add insult to injury, someone from Passion Pictures contacted us about a year ago asking to see samples of our work (including this panoramic) as they were interested in working with us. We sent them samples and then heard nothing from them ever again.’

at last!!!!


low fat water?

dida demonstrates all that is wrong with football

there is no excuse for the fan coming onto the pitch but the reaction is so abhorrent that his own teammates are coming out and saying it was terrible.
