Radiohead LIVE right NOW!!!

Colin announced that the show in Santa Barbara tonight would be broadcast live.  Started at about 10:40pm Eastern time (7:40 on the West coast) so the crowd is still waiting for the band to hit the stage.

Check it out on Radiohead.tv!

UPDATE: 10:53pm (Eastern Time) Radiohead just hit the stage!  Happy concert watching!  AtEase should have the setlist on their site as the show progresses.

NOTE: If you’re unable to see the video, download and install VLC.

Blogging from your Mac Dashboard!

With a funky little tool called WordPressDash I can now post blog entries straight from my dashboard! It includes Category support. Perhaps a future version will include Tag support?

Once you’ve installed the widget you need your XML-RPC url… thanks to another blogger I seem to have gotten this working pretty quickly. Now to press Publish…

House of Cards on your Desktop

There is a cool screensaver version of Radiohead’s House of Cards video.  You can download the Mac or Windows version over on AtEase.

Duplicate and Fireworks

Radiohead were in Montreal last night for part of their In Rainbows tour.  I was pretty far back but managed to catch this priceless moment… during Faust Arp Thom was distracted by the fireworks which you can hear popping in the background…. “duplicate and fireworks”.

It had been raining all day but we came prepared in our rubber boots and rain ponchos!  Just before the show a rainbow appeared in the sky and the rain slowed to a light drizzle.  Radiohead played a fantastic set including classics like Fake Plastic Trees and more recent favourites The Gloaming and Videotape.

To add an extra cherry to our already perfect day I got to stand near Win Butler of the Arcade Fire for most of the show.  I’m not sure how many of the band were there but I can confirm that he, Will Butler, and Richard Perry were in attendance!  Hard to blend into the crowd when Win and red-headed Richard are about 6 inches taller than everyone else.

Finally, some photos of the show… if you’d like some more photos of Radiohead in general check out this Flickr group.  Click on the photos for higher resolution images:
