2. I was listening to Gnarls Barkley last night as I was racing home* from rehearsal and it occured to me that the drumbeats in "Just A Thought" might very well be a sped-up sample from Radiohead's "Talk Show Host", which then prompted me to check; they're definitely similar, and they're both distorted, so it's a possibility. Anyway, that got me to realizing that I hadn't listened to any Radiohead in a loooong time, and I skimmed my way through Kid A and Amnesiac. And then I realized that this would make a pretty good poll question - it's been a few years since Kid A and Amnesiac were released, after all, and I'm curious as to the lay of this particular land.
Kid A or Amnesiac?
3. Speaking of Good Evening, this is as good a time as any to announce that we're playing Pianos next Wednesday, the 24th, at 8pm. Don't say I didn't give you enough warning! It's early! It's a new venue for us! Be there!
I've got training at 10:30; hopefully the rest of the day will be as slow. I can't think or concentrate on anything.
* The N train is not speedy after 9pm. Last night's post-rehearsal subway trip: 1 hour, 10 minutes.
