September 2007 Archives

Well, after complaining a few weeks back, I stand here corrected. And happy.

Radiohead's new album, In Rainbows, comes out Oct 10th as a digital download and in a physical, deluxe package that will ship later if ordered now (digital download is included with the physical package order).

Here's the site: http://www.inrainbows.com/Store/index3.html

From the new website:
DISCBOX pacakge
THIS CONSISTS OF THE NEW ALBUM, IN RAINBOWS, ON CD
AND ON 2 X 12 INCH HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL RECORDS.
A SECOND, ENHANCED CD CONTAINS MORE NEW SONGS, ALONG WITH DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHS AND ARTWORK.
THE DISCBOX ALSO INCLUDES ARTWORK AND LYRIC BOOKLETS.
ALL ARE ENCASED IN A HARDBACK BOOK AND SLIPCASE.

The prices:
Deluxe package: $80 includes shipping (40 pounds in the UK, so thank the exchange rate)
Digital download alone: NAME YOUR PRICE.

That's right. You can pay NOTHING. Or anything you think is right. So, Rob, that means if you hate it, it didn't cost you anything!!!

Now that's pretty cool.

The ONLY thing that makes me hesitate about this whole thing are two songs that are included: All I Need & House of Cards. The live versions are boring (House of Cards especially). Hopefully the album versions are much much better.

The good news, 4 minute warning and last flowers are on the bonus disc. The latter is a song i've yet to hear, but it's been floating around since Kid A (as has Reckoner, Nude, Up on the Ladder), so I have high hopes.

football is definitely a male sport. it is a few seconds of action and then nothing.

just thought i would write about the demise of televised sports in america. i wrote evan about the yankees/sox game on friday. it was horrible from what i saw. i only watched for 30 minutes, but that thirty minutes was of an interview taking up a third of the screen. the game was shown on the other two thirds, but it seemed like the game was a side note. i think espn is becoming more like the news stations and showing as much as it can on the screen during a sports event. i also think viewers are having a harder time focusing their attention for more than two minutes without getting bored. people need constant stimulation and the sport they are watching does not provide it for them. oh well, i just don't watch that much or have the sound off.
