This one’s making the rounds, but I can’t resist posting here too — it’s just so funny, awesome, etc. (via) –
I wish there were a way to make a similar gesture in the age of mp3s.
Empty thumbdrives seem to lack a certain poetry.

I don’t believe we need to make the gesture in the present climate. It’s simply happening despite the lack of “physicality” in a manufactured unit such as a cassette :)
Loving the blog. Months of catch-up reading ahead of me…

I’m stealing this image for my new blog. Far less poetic but a political statement all the same (or maybe just lazy blogging).
Love what you’re doin’ here Mr.Wax

Actually on second thought, a massivre band like radiohead putting there music up on torrents and rapidshare announced on there blog (http://www.radiohead.com/deadairspace/index.php?a=497) is a similairly if not equally poetic statement.
“These Are My Twisted Words
So here’s a new song, called ‘These Are My Twisted Words’.
We’ve been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished.
We’re pretty proud of it.
There’s other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we’ve been practising, and which we’ll probably play at this summer’s concerts. Hope you like it.
Download the audio here (http://www.waste.uk.com/Store/waste-radiohead-twisted+words.html) or torrent here(http://www.mininova.org/tor/2846416).

my friend had this (or maybe it was her brother’s) when we were in high school. i’m trying to remember what was taped on the b-side. i want to say it was something australian. probably something crap, but that’s beside the point.
