I took part in some random University Study about mental health bloggers. I really have no idea what they were studying but they offered a ten dollar gift certificate at Amazon. I figured what the hell and answered their pretty lame questionaire. It was pretty clear it was a badly designed study.
In any case I bought a Radiohead CD with the below song on it with my reward. It covered the whole price of the CD. I hadn’t bought any music in a long long time.
I’d heard of Radiohead but never listened to them before. Amazon recommended them to me based on some other preference of mine. I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I can listen to very little music these days as almost everything irritates my CNS system. This whole album (In Rainbows) I find beautifully soothing.
Considering this video has been watched over 4 million times on Youtube, I suspect I’m terribly out of the loop of the popularity of this band and chances are they are some sort of pop sensation. But I don’t listen to the radio and even if I did we have no stations here that would play them. We have awful radio stations.
I hope you enjoy. The video is pretty cool too.
In Radiohead’s new video for “House of Cards”, no cameras or lights were used. Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data.
