Radiohead: Careful, your fans are going to ruin you…

News dropped yesterday about a contest involving Radiohead.

As if the band wasn’t trailblazing up a storm enough already, now they’ve gone ahead and created a contest that should allow one lucky fan (from anywhere across the globe) to create an independent music video for one of the songs on their latest album “In Rainbows”. Best part: the fan gets to choose the song. I wanna be that stupid asshole… too bad I don’t have any talent.

According to MusicNews.com:

The contest, to be separated into four stages, will culminate with the selection by the members of Radiohead of a winner who will be awarded a $10,000 prize to produce a full-length animated music video. Aniboom’s contest will be announced on television for the first time tonight on Adult Swim, Cartoon Network’s programming block for young adults, and will be promoted on Adult Swim and on MySpace, where fans will be able to vote for their favorite video.

The first stage of the competition begins today and continues through April 27, inviting all artists, animators, writers, character designers and more, to submit storyboards that may range from basic sketches with words to more complex submissions in video formats, using the song of their choice from In Rainbows. Artists have the option to compete solo or to ask Aniboom to match them with other entrants whose talents complement their own. More information on the contest can be found at Aniboom.com (http://aniboom.com/radiohead).

Well, lets hope that this video doesn’t look like the latest disaster from Britney Spears. haha… like that’s possible!!
Although you’d think Radiohead might have learned a valuable lesson when none of their fans paid a dime to buy their last CD online (except me-cuz I actually had money that day)… perhaps, they just shouldn’t trust the public with their shit. I mean, I know I wouldn’t. I barely walk around naked in my apartment with the windows wide open like 3 times daily… no trust.

Though… why should Radiohead care what happens…really? They’re probably one of the biggest bands in the world right now (and when I say ‘big’ I don’t mean in ‘size’ or ‘number’, I mean in ‘awesomeness’) they can just write a song cussing society post-shit-video, and then all things right in the world will be restored. God I love them… they’re so f*$% amazing!!

And just for fun.. here’s a super old skool pic:
