Thom Yorke's ugliness transcends media

If you haven't had the chance to see it yet, check out Radiohead's latest video, for the song "House of Cards."

The video was done entirely without any lighting or cameras, instead fancy computers and lasers were used.

I really love the song, the video just adds to the feeling. It's kind of beautiful, while being still a little creepy. Maybe more than just a little. But still awesome. Just another manner in which Radiohead seems to be ahead of the game, showing that they're not afraid to take full advantage of digital methods in any instance. And yes, as my manager said, Thom Yorke is still kind of odd looking. His ugliness does indeed transcend all forms of media.

Now, for a total shift in mood, here's another recent favorite of mine. stellastar* with "My Coco."

(you have to deal with the live version here, but to see the "official video" for the song, since embedding has been disabled for it, you actually have to go to youtube. Jerks. Anyways, here's a link to it, so you can save a step!) It's an awesome song, one that gets me going. They kind of have an 80's New Wave sound. An awesome sound. Listen, and love.
