(untitled Radiohead post)

Thom , I thought we had a different kind of relationship than this. I thought we were friends. I thought we were cool. I poured through all those dense albums analyzing all the layers and intricacies. Others may have just tripped out to them or followed along like sheep, but I delved into the full depths. I was there from the beginning waving the banner, and now you want me to just leave the money on the dresser? Don't you see what I am getting at?

Yes, that is absolutely right - I am a little strapped for cash. So can I just pay double when you come out with the companion album next year? Well how about a trade? No I see your point, I don't have anything you would want. Just take it? No I couldn't do that. What if I just washed your car for a month? Iron your trousers?

Fine! I'll just wait until the proper CD comes out in the store. I wouldn't trust a download like that on this computer anyway.

Hey, I started taking St. John's Wort again. I read an article that said it is one of the few homeopathic remedies that has some actual merit. Maybe you should try some. Oh, yeah I guess the lithium probably is more effective. Well, look. I am sorry I blew up at you. You know I didn't mean it, right? OK, so we're cool? Yeah, I know. Yeah, well that is what I was saying. No you're the coolest. No you are! OK, let's not get into this again.

Tell Johnny and the boys I said hello. I will. OK, bye.

Dear Radiohead,

Remember when I felt like I could just kind of enjoy your music, before you started making records that dared people to buy them?

Also, remember that time when you were a band only a few people liked as opposed to a band everyone pretended they did?

don't be fooled. Thom just wants your fake money... and pastic trees.

How much do I owe you for this post? I'll pay. Oh how I'll pay. Especially if Barbara reads this comment. Hilarious.

Pistols,

Don't be such a kicking, squealing Gucci little piggy.

MiniJB,

It's not all about the money. Immerse your soul in love!

Dale,

$20. Same as in town.

Radiohead? Is that what you get when you're parking on Lover's Lane with the tunes on?

Since we can "pay" whatever we'd like, I've decided to offer my Daryl Strawberry rookie card and a stick of gum.

Though honestly I think it's worth twice that.

Dear Prostentic Vogon Jeltz,

I'll trade you a Seattle era Ken Griffey, Jr. and the one with the guy flipping the bird for your Radiohead album.

And thanks for stopping by.

-Evil

P.S. $16 sounds about right.
