Radiohead made it on MTV’s “100 Greatest Videos Ever Made” special. “Fake Plastic Trees” came in at # 77. You can watch the countdown on December 6th through December 11th at 8PM Est.

Maybe you’d like to check out the new pictures that were taken and messed up by Jonny? They are quite nice and hopefully there will be more. This is what Stan (the Man) had to say:

“theyre jonnys photos done with liquid light onto scrappy peices of paper
hes going to do some more but i dont know how soon theyll be up in that gallery
ps youre supposed to imagine the music from ‘the gallery’ in take hart/vision on while you look at them”

Why don’t you go take a look.

BBC has begun showing adverts for the new drama series Eureka Street. It’s starting on September 13th and will air twice a week. There was some music playing in the background, which was probably the Radiohead stuff (sounded like their music, well produced and varied). The series itself looks to be excellent as well, with a gritty feel and decent acting.
