on the house of cards video.
By now it's not new news to talk about the amazing new video for Radiohead's "House of Cards"... However, it is worth mentioning in another forum, if only out of the hopes that more people will watch it and realize how important it is that there's a band like Radiohead out there. Just like I've been telling people lately when they ask why I'm unhappy with my iPhone: it's not that it's bad. In fact, it's good. But it's way more important that it exists (period) as opposed to my being happy with it, in and of itself. It's important that it's out there, inspiring others to do more with their mobile companies, etc. And in the same way, even if you're not particularly into what Radiohead is doing (or, to be honest, if you're like me, and don't honestly understand the new video; how they did what they did...), it's really important that someone is out there, pushing the boundaries and inspiring others to continue to do so. In Rainbows was an extremely cool album, but it was way more important to to the music scene how it was released. We've already seen immediate ramifications.
