Remember when we interviewed c215 on the site a few months back? We do. It was good. We like the France-based stencil artist, and like how he does stencils of his daughter to chronicle her coming of age. It is clever. This is a new electric box C215 did in Paris recently… you have to admit, he gets some great colors with his stencil work, some of the best you are going to see.
Thom Yorke gets all John Lennon on us. In talking about how the new album, The King of Limbs, came together, he gave a very honest answer about imitating and stealing. He told NPR’s Guy Raz, “We’re not trying to be experimental or anything. When I first started doing demo’s on my own, I was quite a good imitator. I see it in my daughter, she’s the same. You’re constantly learning from other music and then there’s that Lennon thing about it, ‘It’s not who you steal from, it’s how you steal.’ I’m constantly absorbing other music and that’s what stimulates me the most. And to have the ability within our group with Nigel to move around in all these different areas.”
And we just stole this post from a good place: AtEase.
One of the many men who helped shape the life of the men on staff at The Citrus Report, James Gammon, the grumpy manager of the Indians in the classic film. Major League. He passed away this past Friday of cancer at his daughter’s home in Costa Mesa. He was 70.
