  1. Radiohead - Rainbows

    Radiohead's new ablum, Rainbows, will be released on October 10th. It will only be available for the first two months on Radiohead's website. You can download it for how ever much you feel like paying. From http://www.eonline.com/news/article/index.jsp?uuid=1c844068-b6b5-4db6-8dcc-65ba18916ed7&entry=index The clouds are about to part for Radiohead fans. With speculation increasing that the band's hugely anticipated new album wouldn't arrive until March or later due to a lack of a record deal, the British art-rockers dropped a bombshell Monday, announcing their seventh studio album, In Rainbows, will be out on Oct. 10. "Hello, everyone. Well, the new album is finished, and it's coming out in 10 days," reads a characteristically terse statement from lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. But there's a catch. Since Radiohead is self-releasing the 10-track LP, Rainbows will only be available for the first two months as a digital download and only via the band's official Website. Befitting its reputation as innovative trendsetters in an increasingly staid music biz, Radiohead is giving fans the opportunity to pay as much or as little as they want for the new material. "It's up to you," reads a disclaimer on the checkout page after one clicks on a question mark next to the price field. (Cheapskates, beware: There is a $1 credit card transaction fee.) For those who prefer get their hands on an actual, physical copy, they'll have the opportunity to snap up a hardcover Rainbows "discbox" on Dec. 3. The special edition goes for 40 pounds (about $80) and includes an extra album with eight new tunes, some of which, such as "Down Is the New Up" and "Bangers and Mash," Radiohead unveiled during last summer's tour. In addition to the bonus disc, the discbox will include a double-vinyl record, photos, artwork and lyrics encased in a hardback book and slipcase. The digital download is included and can be accessed on Oct. 10. Both options are available now for preorder at a special site the Grammy-winning quintet has set up to handle the sales. Meanwhile, a rep with the band's U.S.-based PR firm, Nasty Little Man, says the band is in discussions to release the album in stores in January. It was initially assumed LP7—as it was then known—wouldn't be issued until next year, because Radiohead was believed to be shopping for a new record deal after leaving longtime label EMI in 2005 upon fulfilling the terms of their contract. Anticipation was further stoked after some devotees claimed to have decoded mysterious drawings posted on the band's Dead Airspace blog purportedly staking out Mar. 10 as a possible release date. Further clues about Rainbows came in the form of JPEG info for a blurred picture posted of singer Thom Yorke standing before microphone, which listed the name "Up on the Ladder," a song Radiohead debuted several years ago. That song is on the bonus disc. Because of the unique distribution method Yorke and mates are employing this time around—i.e., essentially enabling buyers to decide how much they want to pony up for the music—the band's publicist at Nasty Little Man isn't sure whether Rainbows will be eligible for listing on album charts. Radiohead's last release, 2003's Hail to the Thief, debuted on the Billboard 200 at number three and at number one in the U.K. Here's the complete track listing for the Nigel Godrich-produced In Rainbows and its bonus disc: In Rainbows (vinyl, CD and digital download): 1. "15 Step" 2. "Bodysnatchers" 3. "Nude" 4. "Weird Fishes/Arpeggi" 5. "All I Need" 6. "Faust Arp" 7. "Reckoner" 8. "House of Cards" 9. "Jigsaw Falling into Place" 10. "Videotape" Bonus disc: 1. "MK 1" 2. "Down Is the New Up" 3. "Go Slowly" 4. "MK 2" 5. "Last Flowers" 6. "Up on the Ladder" 7. "Bangers and Mash" 8. "4 Minute Warning"

  7. Hardscaping thieves in Ballard

    Some low-life douchebags stole the top row of a ledge stone retaining wall I built in my Ballard front yard this summer. They took the whole top row, which included the choicest cap stones The value of the rocks isn't too much, less than 2 bills, but I spent a lot of fucking time setting them perfectly. Dry stacking ledge stones is a chore if you want a level, stable wall. Bastards. I'm hoping they come back for the second row tonight, on account of me and the Takoons will be waiting. Anyone else had experience with landscape thievery? Apparently, it's fairly common in Ballard.
  8. Hardscaping thieves in Ballard

    That's crazy. Reminds me of when Judge Ferris from the 9th Circuit had a hundred or so trees whacked from Coleman Park to improve his view of Lake Washington. He settled with the City for $500K.
  9. Hardscaping thieves in Ballard

    In retrospect, I suppose I should have used some masonry adhesive or something, but it's a dry stack wall and doesn't need it structurally. I hadn't considered the theft angle . . .

    David Roberts' "Deborah" and "Mountain of my Fear" are both great. "Stone Crusade" by John Sherman and "Wild Snow" by Lou Dawson are awesome histories. It's not out yet, but I know everyone here is anxiously awaiting Annebelle Bond's upcoming self-help book.

    Wait, you were 4 years old in 1963 and first took hallucinogens two years later in 1965? That's fugging core.

  20. Hillarycare part deux

    That's the modus operandi of every card-carrying Democrat. If you oppose their position, then you are a "bad person" - fill in loaded derogatory slur here: 1) oppose illegal immigration, affirmative action programs, hate-crime legislation, etc: you are a racist 2) oppose gay marriage, gay couples adopting, etc: you are a homophobe 3) oppose social programs: you are callous and care about yourself only 4) oppose tax increases: you're a rich capitalist who cares only about yourself 5) if you oppose abortion, stem-cell research, etc: you are a religious fanatic It goes on and on. Basically, if you oppose anything on their agenda, then they make attacks on you as a person - the politics of personal destruction. Smacks right out of the Soviet Commie strategy - just one step short of calling all opponents bourgeosie capitalists and enemies of the state. Man, yer posts are an eternal well of sweet, sweet irony Good on you for staying the course
