Put in the context of Donwood and Tchock's imagery, this picture is hauntingly scary.. No people, no life; just cars and walls. I'd hate to be caught up in a place like that.Modernity sure is comfortably empty, eh?
i just wish we had some sort of soundtrack to these pictures mmmm lp7?
Cool pics. I love the colours on these old postcards. I just received the book "Boring postcards" for my birthday. Great fun, with postcards of efficient fifties-ness.
Motels of the 60s in the middle of the desert? Hmm.. For some reason so many horror movies of that time portrait them as "scary". Maybe because they dont have any personality and is such a sad and depressing place for die?.
I have a feeling this album is going to be pretty fucking darkme likey...
are we nearly there yet?
hasn't he always included architectural, mechanical and landscape perspective drawings in repertoire? I imagine he observes the world around him sketchs whatever strikes his fancy and tucks bits of inspiration he finds here and there within the pages. btw, these postcards are probably of the famed "route 66" the winds thru, among other places, the western american desert. these rest stops are not uncommon and hold a place of nostalgia among our people, hence the postcards.
I think the album is going to be dark as well. But I don't think it's going to be as dark as "Hail to the Thief". That one was almost about hopelessness. There are a lot of pictures of buildings in radiohead.com. Maybe it's always been a theme with Stanley. Suburbia will definitely be one of the sub-themes in the next album, in my opinion.
