No hat tip to NPR who ran a story on this yesterday? For shame! http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2013/01/29/170498909/rising-postal-rates-squeeze-small-record-labels

I bet if you look really hard, you can see Paul Ryan in the background of one of those videos. Rockin’ a backwards baseball cap and pumpin’ iron.

Now the shame of knowing who Rubberjohnny is is starting to sink in. Too much time on the interwebs.

What kind of monster have you created Stereogum?! Attention will only encourage him.

Seattle has a lot better crews than Macklemore! I would have prefered seeing Blue Scholars, Prometheus Brown & Bambu or RA Scion (from Victor Shade and Common Market). All from Seattle, all far outshining Macklemore. I’m just saying…

Why all the dislikes? Could it be the GuyLiner? Or – as you would say given your propensity for spoonerisms – the Lie Guyner.

Good point. I’ll add that to the theory!

 +6Posted on Feb 18th, 2011 | re: The King Of Limbs Comment Party (309 comments)

I am building a CONSPIRACY THEORY that this is actually Pt. 1 of a Double Album. I wrote about it on my blog (http://musicsnobsanonymous.blogspot.com/2011/02/king-of-limbs-double-album.html) but consider the following…..

This album is only 8 tracks and just under 38 minutes long. Radiohead isn’t known for brevity.

The album was released 1 day earlier than previously scheduled.

The last song is called “Separator.”

WHAT IF

“Separator” is actually the MIDDLE track in a double-album, the 2nd half of which will be released tomorrow as scheduled.

Also, consider that one of the last lines of Separator is “If you Think this is over, you’re wrong”

Also, consider that Separator has been a melody circulating about under the name “Mouse, Bird, Dog” as a live track Yorke played last year. Was the name changed simply to hint at this double album?

Also, The King of Limbs was announced as a “newspaper album,” and that still hasn’t been fully explained. Another song that has been floating around from last year has been “The Daily Mail,” which is a prominent British newspaper. That track is current NOT on the album. It seems to me that it should be, and maybe could appear on a 2nd installment to the album.

Wouldn’t that be sweet!”
