The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Thom Yorke video tracks…

Yeah, Chuck told me about these…but there was some other site that had some for free download or something that I missed. When I think of Radiohead and Thom Yorke – I think music snobbery right away – both sides. One, that says Thom is mainstream and he isn’t cool anymore. Two, that Thom Yorke being talked about on THE BRILLIANCE by that kid that always talks about hip-hop is just to show juxtaposition. Ha…maybe I over analyzed that. These songs, specifically ‘Videotape’, are perfect - check them on iTunes. Chuck and I have been talking about music quite a bit lately, specifically listening to music in context, which is how I have always consumed music. I guess you could say everyone listens to music in context – or you could side with Masta Killa that the ‘dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum’. When I listen to Radiohead and/or Thom Yorke its…always an experience. I listen to their music in the context of relaxation, spaced-out-ness, and for creative inspiration. And being able to watch Thom perform a song with just him and a piano but have it sound so multi-layered is a tribute to his ability to create soundtracks for your imagination. If you have any crazy unreleased b-sides or whatever, hit me up at our main email or my personal if you got it.
