Radiohead text message review

Posted by John / June 16, 2006

On June 11, MP writer Jeremy Morris and I (and some other people) saw Radiohead play their second of two shows at Place des Arts. Jeremy watched the show from Row U, while I, due to some Internet karma that I can't entirely account for, sat in Row B. It seemed like a good idea to discuss the show as it progressed, but we quickly found that yelling back and forth didn't work because we couldn't hear each other. It was suggested by Jeremy's date that we use our cell phones; this proved difficult because once we had taped our notes to the phone, it was almost impossible to throw the it accurately to the other reviewer. No, you idiots, Jeremy's date said, use the text message function. So we did. Our remarks follow.

Jeremy's messages in plain text.
John's in italics.

8:22pm - jmac, shld we do a txt review of the radiohead show
8:26pm - eat my shorts, jer
8:35pm - jmac, where r u?
8:37pm - row b, im awesome
8:39pm - row u rules cuz I won't have to strain my neck

9:03pm - jmac, are you getting seizures from the strobe lights
9:07pm - naw, but I just crapped myself cuz exit music from a film was so good
9:10pm - 1 more reason y row u is better. its crap-free

9:12p.m. - jer, dudes in front of me just got high and now cant stop talking to each other about how high they are.
9:14 - if they're in row A then they're probably above the law. nothing u can do.
9:16 - those punks think theyre above the law ... theyre not above mine
9:18pm - just lean over and sing (in the folgers coffee jingle) the best part of getting high is getting highiiiyiiii
9:19pm - that totally worked, thx

9:32pm - why did they just play myxomatosis?
9:42pm - cuz its awesome
9:43pm - what the hell is myxomatosis?
9:45pm - a highly infectious, usually fatal viral disease of rabbits
9:47pm - that is awesome.
9:48pm - hey, how did you know that?

9:50pm - dude, how fast are these roadies? piano in, piano out. set up a small drumkit, tear it down.
9:51pm - i would totally slam a radiohead roadie

9:52pm - a wolf at the door? they're playing a wolf at the door!
9:53pm - technically, this can't really get any better. like, we're into infinity vs. infinity-plus-one at this point. it's still just infinity.
9:54pm - disagree. it's like infinity times infinity right now, which is totally different.
9:59pm - whats johnny greenwood doing with the sampler/sequencer?
10:02pm - I think he's piping in sounds from Les FrancoFolies

10:09pm - Dude, they've been playing for almost 2 hours.
10:10pm - We can count on two encores, too.
10:11pm - yeah, they clearly love us. they look giddy and bashful. oh, can u see that from back there?
10:14pm - screw you.
10:15pm - man, I can count the lines on Thom's face from here.
10:16pm - can you count the kicks to the groin you will get from me after the show?
10:17pm - what just happened? everyone yelled at something but I was busy trying to text msg.
10:18pm - i can't tell you, but it was unreal.
10:19pm - nooo! house lights! house CD! one more encore. cmon.
10:20pm - we didnt even talk about the video screen projections or the songs from the bends

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you
know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

I got home from work yesterday afenotorn and mowed the lawn and blew leaves before the rain came today. After I mowed my lawn, I went next door to my neighbors house and mowed his lawn and blew the leaves off his property. I slipped a pay it forward card under his door mat when I was finished. He came over and thanked me for what I'd done, and also asked me about pay it forward. I often do things for other people, but yesterday it felt a little different because it gave me the opportunity to tell him about paying it forward; also in hopes that it would have a chain reaction and many lives would be effected by such a positive and simple notion of paying it forward .

Thank you! I will be returning regularly to “read” the next good book. I love how you are sharing books that changed, shaped, and walked you through the next steps of your journey. Also, maybe a book I might be shaped, changed or walked through will be listed and chatted about.

really good experiment!Would like to ask one thing; in your posts and comments you mentioned about Point Cloud Library, I am using this Library. In this they are using OpenNI driver.My Q’n is when I save data from kinect in ‘.pcd’ file format It gives me information about X, Y, Z and rgb. Out of these X, Y and Z(depth) are saved in real world coordinates and unit is ‘meters’?Is it right, what I understood?Cheers!!!
