Like ripples on a shore

Nothing like logging posts that are really nothing more than an embed...but I thought this one was worthy. The official video for Radiohead's "Reckoner," my personal favorite from the brilliant In Rainbows. The video you see is the cream of a contest's worth of fan-created crop. Although the creator is clearly not without advanced training in animation, it's yet another innovative idea by Radiohead, and I dare say the video is fantastic.

Earlier this week, for the first time in a year or two, I listened to Radiohead's debut, Pablo Honey. Sort of remarkable considering I listen to each of the other albums on what seems like a weekly basis. But I'd sort of forgotten about what a rocking affair Pablo was, and I was caught off guard by how much I enjoyed it. So racous and boisterous compared to In Rainbows, but they always sound like they know exactly what they're trying to do with every note they play.

And just for the hell of it, some Pablo Honey goodness.
