radiohead: weird fishes/arpeggi
it's the early AM and i'm in the deepest ocean. the bottom of the sea. i'm stuck in that tired but restless place, where you can either give in to the pressure of your eyelids closing or stay awake anxiously awaiting the night to happen. this was one of my favorite songs when i first listened to in rainbows. such a perfect title, too. the notes of each song swirling in and out of your ears like rain dripping on the windshield of a car as the wipers swish back and forth across the glass.
i can see that JUMBO stage at outside lands engulfing the band playing the music they believed in so much they didn't care if they sold it for nothing. their passion professed in the the middle of golden gate park, the multicolored lights like strands of rain frozen in a storm, and the arpeggiated notes swiftly hitting my ears. it was all i needed in that moment. with my dad by my side, that was it. perfection.
