  1. 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. :rawk:


    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:

    Also, this is the coolest book I've gotten in a long time, and I look through it all the time:





  3. why do people always try to blame war on the rich? i think war is just human nature. look at the bushmen in australia and africa and amazonia. they fight wars and kill each other but there aren't any rich people around.


    "rich" is a culturally relative concept.

  5. That job was fucking nuts after a year and a half of very expensive work the folks who illegally tried to improve their view got sued and lost to the tune of triple damages .... a boat load of money.


    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.

  6. Mortar would probably work fine for a set of shoes :tup:


    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 . . .


  7. 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 :mad:


    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.

    ummm...this is a private forum...as such, jon et. al, has ownership and can dictate what "speech" is allowed on this site (nifty word here: moderator)...


    aaaaaaaaaaw the fine smell of fascism.........


    Christ, you're a tool bag V7. I was hoping this thread would stir up some (((quality))) spray, but all we're getting is your incoherent ramblings.

  9. WTF is up with the Go Army recruiting banner ad at the top of cc.com? I don't mind climbing ads on account of gear is pretty sweet and the site need funding, but military recruiting? I'm pretty sure that this site isn't the Army's target audience, as the posters are pretty much either effete Seattle liberals and chickenhawk Tacoma conservatives. What's next, Pottery Barn ads? Maybe McDonalds? WTF?

  10. In 1963, I was awakened by my father and taken outside with the rest of my family. Most of the neighborhood was out there on the street looking up at a commonly described UFO. It was cigar shaped, had red and green lights along its side and was hovering about 1000' above Missoula. It moved slowly to the west over the course of about 20 minutes then abruptly turned south and upwards and streaked into space.

    This is a memory I do not know what to do with.

    At age 4, I had not yet done hallucinagenics. Those came in 65.

    Besides, my family and I talked about it last July. We all just shook our heads and moved on to the next subject.

    To this day, nothing has jumped out of my chest although my father has severe chest pains.


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

  11. The simple story being told to oneself here seems to be that anyone that opposing the nationalization of healthcare is doing so out of callous disregard for the less fortunate.


    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


  12. I just don't trust government or the people trying to foist this on us. I'm tired of the rhetoric. Facta non verba. I want to see proof.


    Sorry about the non-sequitur, but this statement brings the work "Iraq" to mind.

  13. I don't disagree with this:


    When the kids get to middle school, make sure they understand that Jefferson was both a great writer and a slaveowner, that ideals are one thing, but that real freedom is greatly rare. Tell the kids to be thankful, not proud, that they're Americans. Tell them that American patriotism is not mere love of country, but suspicion of the guy in charge, and a durable prejudice in favor of the guy with no juice, the fellow whose only connections are to his faith, his patch and his people. Tell them that American patriotism doesn't chant angrily it sings softly. Tell them that American patriotism isn't loud, but vigilant and humble. Tell them that even if we're ashamed of some of our actions, we can take pride in what we hope for. Our ambitions are worth honoring. Tell the kids that for all our crimes of racism, industrial rapaciousness and mere muscle, despite the regularity with which the little guy takes it in the neck, this land from California to the New York island remains a possibility; we still have a chance. Tell them that though we've fallen short of liberty and justice for all, this is a work in progress, that you're full of hope because their generation has yet to summon its attention and its big heart on behalf of the dream.
