re: that there new Twilight movie the kids are talking about

Apparently it’s a big thing. So, in the most inexplicably far fetched idea for entertainment ever, a friend shows up with a copy, some for-adults-only snacks and we let the journey begin.

I’m not going into the movie because I don’t want to offend the INTERNET with how I felt. Let’s just say, before it was conceptual and now it’s real – sad face.

Anyway, that’s not the point – the point is Radiohead. The video montage that ends the movie (the best part of the movie – yes, the end, but also the montage) uses Radiohead’s 15 Step. It’s a fantastic song and, quality of the move aside, does not belong in what is ostensibly a teenybopper tease.

So now I’m confused, a little hurt and a little amazed/respectful at how big Thom Yorke’s sell out balls are. [read more about it]

Note: I limit my snark for this site because technically we're supposed to be promoting things.
But for you I say: the concept of Twilight is apalling, the execution ham fisted, and the acting terrible. It's not just contemptible, it's insulting. Not just as an idea, as an "art" object in itself. Boo.
