Warpaint’s probably the band I want to see the most, after Radiohead and AFP. (And Arcade Fire, who aren’t coming to Germany at all, as far as I can see. *sigh*)
How do people manage to find out all this kind of stuff in time?
Warpaint played four gigs in Germany in November, apparently. Of course, I only found out four weeks after the fact.
They’ll be back again in February, apparently, but I may not be able to travel then.
LOL @ Moby and Thom Yorke’s staunch refusal to have that “feud” the media seemed so eager to write about. <3
HE WEARS STRIPED SOCKS THE SAME KIND AS ME WHAT IF THEY ARE KNEE HIGH OR BETTER YET THIGH HIGH WHAT IF HE LOUNGES IN THIGH HIGH STRIPED SOCKS AND UNDERWEAR AND NOTHING ELSE i think i just ranted myself into a love fit.
He is a flawless style icon….
I want close-ups now.
In other news, it has become completely impossible to type out tags that aren’t already in the drop-down menu - or even ones that aren’t among the first few options offered there. My attempt to put a “tag later” tag on this failed because tumblr keeps suggesting ridiculous tags like “tag”, “tag l”, “tag late” etc. before I can finish typing the “later” part of the tag. Well done, tumblr.
ETA: For some reason, it does work when you do it *after* posting. WTF.
Re: submissions: sending me links to your own posts about Yorke-etc.-related Important Stuff will do - I’ll happily reblog those, when I come back.
Would welcome it if people could submit the most important Radiohead/AFP/Yorke-related items to me, while I’m gone. I’m not gonna try to catch up with five weeks’s worth of tumblr, when I come back, but I’ll probably still want to know what Thom Yorke has been up to… I already miss him, or rather, the presence of daily tidbits about him, in my life.
When I come back, I’ll try to come back as an aggregator of noteworthy things, not as a person, btw. I’ve been too much of a person here lately and, well, I’m not a very good one. Let’s go back to when this blog was a useful resource.
I’ve moved to the Zone of No Spare Time. I’m gonna stay here for at least the next four weeks.
Probably for the best, considering the way I’ve been behaving here recently. A tumblr sabbatical may be just what I need.
