Congrats to Radiohead

This week marks the 9th year in a row that Radiohead is my favorite band. For being such a fickle bitch and waffler, I'd say that is a minor miracle. 

They must really be the best band in the world if they can stand up to all my non-committing and flakiness. 

In the same time period I've constantly wrestled internally about my favorite sports teams, cities to live, life priorities, soda vs. coffee, food preferences, snootiness and lack-there-of, authors and movie directors. 

However, I've never wavered on my music preference. 

Here we are on the morning of the first ever Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco and Radiohead is headlining tonight. They deserve that closing slot and have earned it by making and mastering all the right music specifically tailored to my yearns and desires. Here is the part in the post where I am supposed to dive into the nuances of what makes them so great. But suffice to say that you either get it or you don't.  Again, congrats to Thom Yorke and his band of brothers.

I dont know a single song by Radiohead and have never listened to them. No joke. Just not interested. Would that be the equivalent of being an NBA fan and just not paying attention to LBJ ???

We all know you love Michael McDonald (Don't Worry 'Bout a Thing...) as evidenced by the play list at your party the other night. I just wouldn't sweat it...

Oh fun game. Make fun of songs on somebody's play list that were not on the play list. I love that game.
