Yauch

Entitled "Dot Connectors", this message was posted to Radiohead.com today:

I was very sad to hear the news of Adam Yauch's death yesterday.

We looked up to the Beastie Boys a lot when we were starting out and how they maintained artistic control making wicked records but still were on a major label, and the Tibetan Freedom Concerts they organized had a very big influence on me personally and the way Adam conducted himself and dealt with it all impressed me a lot. He was a mellow and v smart guy. May he rest in peace.

On another note check this out> people connecting the dots of our weird weather patterns, though the climate change deniers still frantically shout their voice is getting quieter. climate dots around the world

Thom Yorke is a success. 4:36 is a failure.

Thom Yorke is a ego maniac.

5:43 is a LEGO brainiac.

what is that four tet track he mentions?

God, enough with the climate shit Thom, nobody cares.

And by "nobody" 6:24 means all non-thinking people. The rest of us do.

Radiohead is the Motley Crue of college rock. Thom is Nikki Sixx, and Jonny is Mick Mars.

"5:43 is a LEGO brainiac."

All I know is bagels - and that THAT is a funny comeback. We're all laughing about it up here.

Would never have guessed the Beastie Boys were that big of an influence on Radiohead. I'm a fan of both though. Very cool, good for Yorke.

and who has used the word 'wicked' since the 90's rave scene in england? WHITE PEOPLE

Nice that Thom eulogized Adam, but does he have to ruin the moment by inserting his agenda into it? Even if it's a noble or worthy cause, it's inappropriate.

RIP MCA, one of the true legends and pioneers of a music genre. Nice tribute from Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Mets, etc.

Maybe Thom could take up residence at the University of East Anglia. Skew data to supposedly confirm human impact on the changing climate by day, DJ sets for the students and faculty at night.

Or how about this? How about you take up residence in an abandoned coal mine, and like it?
