[Radiohead bear]Saw Radiohead last night. Amazing. How can these guys, playing (mostly) the same instruments as any rock band, create such sounds and stretch rock-n-roll almost beyond recognition? Each member of the band switched instruments at least once; these roadies work for their living! Also, when you listen to their albums filled with strange and wonderful sounds, it’s easy to get the impression that their recordings are crafted entirely through studio magic. Not so.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
