“THERES A SURPRISE TO NO SURPRISES”

Thom Yorke clearly has a thing for crowd manipulation. The other night I was at Universal City Walk in Los Angeles California and spotted his face on the large LCD screen overlooking the walk. His face was speaking the lyrics of No Surprises. A few walked by and acknowledged the song not really paying attention to it. I stood there and looked at it in awe. Yorke made Orwell’s prediction of the future come true. At that moment I realized, there were billions of people in the world who could potentially be watching the exact same thing on screens at any moment. We are living in a fucked up, basterdized version of 1984. Mind you, only the countries who have decided to fall into the culture of our modern day role models who just happen to be our artists. As an artist is it my duty to implement and control what the rest of society holds dear to their heart? I don’t know if Im comfortable with so much power.

I just downloaded Thom’s new independent album “The Eraser”. Im curious to see where he takes it.
