Ed is a mouth cunt.

Honestly, what does anybody need to happen.  Some unreleased material?  They could release I froze up along with bad versions of optimistic and true love waits anytime.  An anniversary reissue isn't n

Well, it's not just that. At all. At a surface glance it seems that is what it is about, it's actually a complex story about love and responsibility and how you would personally react in that situation. We have all been tempted, right? Poe said it best; '...the spirit of perverseness. Of this spirit philosophy takes no account. Yet I am not more sure that my soul lives, than I am that perverseness is one of the primitive impulses of the human heart -- one of the indivisible primary faculties, or sentiments, which give direction to the character of Man. Who has not, a hundred times, found himself committing a vile or a silly action, for no other reason than because he knows he should not? Have we not a perpetual inclination, in the teeth of our best judgment, to violate that which is Law, merely because we understand it to be such?' It's also a wickedly good puzzle which becomes ever-increasingly hard and complex. And that is only scratching the surface. If you really, and I mean REALLY go hard, you start coming up with stories about sumerian mythology, especially with the inclusion of Ishtar, the goddess of fertility, love, war, and sex. And dumuzid, the shepard. And even fucking Astaroth which is mentioned several times in demonology, alongside beezlebub. And I'm really honestly only JUST scratching the surface.

Remember when Ramshakle put in a bomb threat and crashed the board.  Yeah glad I never went that crazy.  Also, Nigel used to post here too.  Are we good friends?  Like we have stories.  The worst thing I did was post gay porn on here.

I've heard many people say that. I can understand their feelings, but. Even if I went all the way to atheism someday, my feelings on this wouldn't change a bit. I just can't have sex with someone who doesn't love me. I've had fap sessions where I'm laying in the afterglow, and I think. I'm so vulnerable now. In a very special way. It just wouldn't feel right to have even a hot woman witness that, there have to be preconditions. Does she like Radiohead? Does she think Amnesiac is their best work, or just a b-sides compilation? Somewhere in between?

Well I guess that means you really outta buy my record 

really though, this kinda blows and I hope that doesn’t mean they’re despondent about it. I read an interview with Ed earlier this year that suggested he didn’t really care about Kid A and that none of them like looking back

Ed in an interview earlier this year:

Quote

 

Will you guys be doing anything to mark 20 years of ‘Kid A’ and Amnesiac’ this year and next?

“Due to the nature of it, I can’t fully reveal anything – but there have been talks about ways of doing something. Everything gets thrown up in the air with coronavirus, so a lot of ideas are being mooted. It would be nice to honour it, but then there’s the struggle – how can you get that excited about an album that came out 20 years ago? I can’t. I’m thankful it was a moment and know that it means a lot to people, but it was a long time ago.”

 

But Thom has spoken several times of going through old material and planning to "do something really cool with it" so this apparent cancellation is surprising. Stanley also spoke of working on something "top secret" that sounded suspiciously Radioheadish to me. Perhaps covid made it all too hard and they'll do something for the 25th anniversary instead.
