(thanks, wired.com)

To build community on this current tour, Radiohead has set up what it's calling W.A.S.T.E. Central, using the Ning community format. (If you're a friend of LofiSTL's Ning forum, you can join up super easily.) I suggest you go and check out the site.

Second order of business: I still own my 1997 OK Computer tour T-shirt, which I purchased at the Lakewood Civic Auditorium in August of that year, my senior year in high school. (I've written about this before.) And, I, uh, wear it frequently, so is it gauche or awesome to wear it to the show on Wednesday? Discuss.

I'm going to leave the eras/explanations/lyrics up to Green Plastic's lyrics page, but the last order of business is the first of two Radiohead b-sides Muxtapes. Like Oasis, Radiohead is one of those bands who has an insane amount of extra songs that sometimes rival the quality of the ones found on its albums. After the jump is the tracklisting for the first installment, which I call:
