Four weeks ago, the video for Radiohead's Lotus Flower
went up on YouTube. It's a simple thing, black and white, starting off with a silhouetted dancer who turns out to be Thom Yorke. The formerly "very shy and uncertain
" fellow has since turned into a back-up dancer for Beyonce
, makes Window Licker a bit less creepy
*, and is a dancing queen
. There's a step-by-step graphic break-down of Thom's dance
(descriptions in French, auto-translated by Babelfish
and alternate descriotion in English
), a detailed break-down of Yorke's influences
, a tumblr of 150 dancing Thom video edits and mash-ups
, and a Know Your Meme page
. [more inside]

Radiohead to appear on South Park!
Insert unfunny South Park quote here. Suggestions: "Looks like Thom Yorke got sand in his vagina." "Why hello, children. Allow me to sing you a chilling apolcalyptic ballad about the future when we'll all be robots." However, anyone who mentions "Oh my god, they killed Thom Yorke!" will be kicked in the balls. I'm serious. None of that.
