Those blips invade MTV

MTV America has started showing a Radiohead blip called “Bear Witch“, a parody of the Blair Witch Project, in which bears jump out of the forest.

More blips will supposedly appear tonight on MTV at 11pm. Along with the “Bear Witch“, the “White Mountains” and “Giants” blips will be also be shown.

Shut ’em down

Yesterday we reported that the Vancouver radio station, 104.9 XFM, was playing “Optimistic” on the air. The station was set to play it again last night but couldn’t cause they received a cease and desist fax from EMI. Coincidentally, Thom was on the official message board about 30 minutes earlier and made a comment about it.

Radio stations around North America will begin to play “Optimistic” on September 18th, legally. 🙂
