Resolved Question: Is this a sign of
I'm comparing two artifacts over Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, as I was suprised to find that he was against something that I thought he would have probably supported. The band welcomed "the future of the music industry" with free download services such as Napster and Aimster in 2000 (around the time of Kid A), and then released a pay any amount process in 2007 for In Rainbows (again, could be bought for nothing), yet their main man has since then removed his newer band's music from Spotify, admitted today that he dislikes YouTube (and other free services), and has said that the culture of collecting vinyl no longer exists. Don't these two things clash, though? What has caused this to happen? I'm aware that people get slightly more conservative with these views as they get older, so this could be a reason. Also, while the free services of 2000 typically had no ads to profit at all (despite being illegal), YouTube does have ads, and virtually none of the revenue goes to the artists, so YouTube could be worst from the company perspective than Napster was in his view. I also noticed that the pro-future comments of 2000 were made by their bassist, so maybe I'm getting the views of other members mixed with his own.
What do you think about what he's said recently VS the pro Napster stance he had 15 years ago? Do you have a suggestion as to the reason why he changed his mind?

Resolved Question: Is Radiohead Thom Yorke
Hi, I'm Japanese. Lately I got into Radiohead so much.
I have a crush on Thom Yorke!
He's so handsome and his introverted character, lyrics, songs, all things turn me on.
I love to watch his MVs, especially 90's.
He's too handsome on the MV of "street spirit (fade out)", I can't take my eyes off him!!!!!!
The latest MV Lotus flower was awesome too.
Yes, he's just like an angel, his beautiful face makes me cry.
He floats like a feather, in a beautiful dark world.
He was already fu**ing special.
I wonder why he wrote such lyrics "creep" and "thinking of you" and so on.
He's really handsome, he can't be creep.
Did he just like a super beautiful model girl?
If I had been an British and he had been my classmate, I would have stalked him!
Ah, what an attractive guy.
In the UK, there are many handsome guys.
Like, Matt Bellamy(Muse), Ian Curtis(Joy Division).
But, I like Thom Yorke and Matt Bellamy so much.
Matt Bellamy seems to like super beautiful girls though. Hi, I'm 24years old. Of course I know he has his family and he loves his family so much!
He got married to his classmate and doesn't divorce unlike other rock stars.
Lately I read he rejected Kate Hudson's seducement.
He seems very serious, it makes him more cooler!
As a fan, I love him! Yeeeeees!

Resolved Question: Is Thom Yorke, um, sexy?
So this is a kind of weird question, but, I was watching the video for Lotus Flower, the one where he dances like an epileptic. And it ocured to me that I find this mans weird moves oddly, um, arousing...
The fact that he can dance so freely like no one can see him, his angelic voice and his bony face with a wonky eye altogether gives a very intense aesthetic inpression, coupled with his eccentric and kind of cold personality, sexy is suddenly the right word for him.
Am I alone to think like this?
(Then again, I also find Spock from Star Trek to be very attractive, so it might just be me...)

Resolved Question: Is Radiohead's Thom Yorke
I'm not hating on the guy, quite frankly, I love him. Whenever I see him in music videos and concerts, he seems sad and shows no emotion. It seems so to the point where he's depressed.
