So I’m all Big Kev excited about the news that Radiohead’s new album is coming out in ten teeny little days. I love their stealth tactics too, bypassing the record companies and avoiding the usual leaked copy hoopla by offering the album for download on their website, with the downloadee deciding how much to pay.
My only worry is what’s going to happen on the big day when everyone is trying to collect their copy? HOW MANY SERVERS HAVE THEY GOT AND ARE THEY MADE OF CAST IRON AND SELLOTAPE because I remember last year I spent seven sad little fangirl hours trying to buy presale concert tickets on their website to no avail. It struggled and stuttered like a herd of constipated cows, as if shocked by the surge in popularity.
Already today its been difficult to access, with lovely Jonny posting another message en blog to say, “it’s getting busy in there – busier than they expected.”
Fellas! Will you ever learn? EXPECT A FEW VISITORS! Stock up the fridge! Borrow some spare chairs from your nanna’s house! YOU’RE POPULAR DARNIT!
In other news, I start a new job tomorrow, doing web stuff. For the first time in 4.5 years my work won’t involve typing letters and making appalling cups of instant coffee. I’m absolutely shitscared, especially considering my recent display of skill and flair with the blog upgrade. Pray for me!
