I know that most people who frequent our site probably won’t read this post.
And how do I know this? They’ll be too busy obsessing over that new Radiohead record.
Come to think of it, what I am doing here? I should be listening to that record myself. Like right now.
Oh, and feel free to skim the following recap. That is, if you haven’t already come to your senses like I have.
