ICYMI my live-tweeting of the Oscars tonight
"This was around Christmas or New Years in 1996," Clinch says. "I was hanging out with Radiohead around New York. The band had come to town for something, but they weren’t on tour. They were doing Christmas shopping and stuff with their girls. Raygun wanted them on the cover, but the band wasn’t interested in doing much. Thom looked at me and said, ‘What do you think Danny? Should we do it?’ I encouraged them. Thom said, ‘We’ll do it, but Danny has to take the pictures.’
"We were hanging around 6th Avenue, downtown. I had them all on this bench and I really liked that wall. I had Thom standing on the bench and I was like, ‘What if you put your arms off and started to fall and I get down really low?’ He just jumped off the bench. I asked him to do it one more time. There’s basically two frames, but in the other one Johnny’s face is covered by Thom’s foot. That was it. It was really a one-off."

"I work at this library. And before that, I was coming here for twenty years. It’s my favorite place in the world. As many people know, the main reading room of this library is supported by seven floors of books, which contain one of the greatest research collections in the world. Recently, the library administration has decided to rip out this collection, send the books to New Jersey, and use the space for a lending library. As part of the consolidation, they are going to close down the Mid-Manhattan Library Branch as well as the Science, Industry, and Business Library. When everything is finished, one of the greatest research libraries in the world will become a glorified internet cafe. Now read that back to me."
I love this shit!!!
