18 hours of music from Radioheadís OK Computer sessions have leaked online

way to go radiohead...never negotiate with terroists
Radiohead officially release leaked OK Computer material after turning down $150,000 ransom

"For £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom"

Now, the band has officially released the leaked material through Bandcamp and is donating the proceeds to the climate activist group Extinction Rebellion.

I swear to god...while running on the Mall today, in addition to a couple of girls in MAGA t-shirts and a boy in a MAGA t-shirt AND hat (just too hard to choose one!)...I saw a woman wearing a John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band t-shirt.

If they lose John, they could be my favorite band.

Commuting by the Newseum in the morning is the absolute worst.  Every field trip seems to be packed with MAGA kids.  And of course the irony of wearing a MAGA hat into a museum about free press is totally lost on them.

I'll show 'em! I'll wear my Obama t-shirt the next time I visit relatives in Indiana, South Carolina, or upstate New York! Give that middle finger right back!

I don't think that 12 or 13 year olds are that politically aware, and especially not of the DC politics.  I think it's more a fashion fad that signals being within the "in" group much like a Starter jacket was when I was in middle school.

The whole story about all the Universal master tapes being destroyed in 2008 is a bit heartbreaking.  Lots and lots of history lost there.  As someone pointed out Universal never dived into their archives like so many others. It would appear that among other things Nevermind mastertapes along with loads of 60s, etc lost... I think Andy Partridge was eluding to some lost XTC masters and I wonder if these were them.

Perhaps I missed the conversation on this tweet from Dec 2108 (and if so, I apologize):

I Shot The Serif:
Artists and bands with names that sound like they could be fonts/ typefaces



https://twitter.com/_Bands_FC/status/1076444503005904896

Apparently they're downloadable too!

kind of lazy that Husker du is on there twice...

but those are some cool fonts and will help me remember ones I like
as I am lame and Segoe UI all the time

Edit...it's only that image that is downloadable...not the fonts (as far as I can tell)
