When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fucking special
—  Radiohead, Creep
Creep

La genialitá di Creep sta nel fatto che puoi essere anche Leonardo di Caprio, ma quando ti parte casualmente per radio tu la canti sempre come fossi Danny De Vito. Credendoci. Urlando al mondo il tuo dolore per essere uno zoccolo di gnu. Anche se sei meravigliosamente fica, con gli occhi verdi e un corpo mozzafiato. Anche se sei uno splendido centauro metá Varenne e metá Brad Pitt. La parte giusta di entrambe, ovviamente.

Canti come un Angelo caduto dal cielo: Gianfranco D'Angelo.

E da normodotato, atteggiandoti a merdaccia piagniucolona, a ultimo degli ultimi, ti senti veramente il più fico del mondo.

Ecco, Thom Yorke ha sdoganato la lamentite e ci ha fatto un pezzone della madonna.

“I’m a creeeeeeppppp, i’m De Viiiitoooooooooo!!!!!”

Dan Rickwood, publicly know as Stanley Donwood is an artist and writer. He is responsible for every Radiohead album cover and poster since 1994. He worked as a freelance artist in Plymouth, England after graduating from University of Exeter. 

Donwood met Radiohead’s frontman Thom Yorke while attending Univ. of Exeter, Stanley is quoted saying that his first impression of Yorke was “Mouthy. Pissed off. Someone I could work with”. Many people all over the world adore Radiohead and have associated these images with their music without knowing the true relationship and artistry that connected them. 

Having the right imagery is a very important thing, It can help facilitate the mood that you are attempting to create. It can help heighten the experience, it can make whatever it is your are doing become seamless. We’ve all judged a book by its cover, it’s instinctual to make a judgement based on first appearance. 

When an image connects with you it can leave you in a state of awe; may it be a beautiful man or woman, a painiting, a photograph, a graphic from a magazine. You immediately feel a connection with what it is you are seeing. 

You take a mental photograph and it can stay with you for as long as life. It’s an infatuation, it becomes a part of you, it’s becomes your identity, it helps you grow, it helps you experience.
