Otherwise, expect a lot of Radiohead, occasionally some of the Strokes, Björk, the Kills, the White Stripes, Jake Bugg, and the odd mental breakdown.
Christa. 25. From, and living in Canada. Deepest secret: I love One Direction.
This is where the Radiohead Library is.
The water line stopped working hours ago, I don’t have any juice or milk, and I haven’t had a drink in 9 hours. It’s 4:30 a.m. and this is a small town so no 24-hour stores… So I went outside and ate some snow just now. Uh.
LIFE HACK: Be Thom Yorke

Jack White about Meg (x) —
CM: The way we differ from Radiohead— who are unquestionably brilliant— is that, at the end of the day, I’m still a slave to catchy songs. I love sing-alongs. And within the limits of that, we’ll try anything. But we’re in the middle because I love “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry almost as much as “Karma Police”, and if you want to straddle that line, you have to take the slings and arrows.
Thom [Yorke] has a different philosophy, and that’s why they’re as great as they are. They’re a lot braver, in a certain sense. They always challenge the hell out of you. When Kid A came out, I listened to it once and was really angry. I was like, “Where are all the stadium songs?” And then, sure enough, it becomes your favorite. That’s so wonderful.
Reinventions like Kid A or Achtung Baby were natural, but we wouldn’t do that because it’s already been done. We’re trying to keep changing in our own way— we’re definitely a very different-sounding band now compared to the first album or the third album. I know we can never be in those guys’ spheres, but we have our own thing, which is OK. Do you think it’s normal for big artists to have haters and ups-and-downs?

|It's a damn shame you are a RADIOHEAD fan and you like some boy band shit.|
I get an odd amount of people telling me stuff like this IRL and online, so I’m gonna use this message to just explain my love of One Direction right now, because some people are seriously baffled or disgusted.
I adore and admire bands like Radiohead because they push music into unknown territory. Innovation is amazing to me. But I first and foremost listen to music because I connect to it emotionally… which One Direction is as capable of doing as Radiohead. Their songs make me happy. They have nice voices. Doesn’t matter that they don’t sing anything in a 10/4 time signature or use a Kaoss Pad on Zayn Malik’s vocals. If I’m feeling it, I’ll listen to it.
I’ll admit, it feels kinda gross to support music that’s clearly a money-making venture and not much else… But there’s a lot of positives related to One Direction as well that I couldn’t discredit them for.
