In the background that’s Darth Vader’s lightsaber about to make Thom Yorke MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE.




Wherein Thom covers the entirety of A Rush of Blood to the Head in less than four minutes. It sounds like spinning plates.




And after aaaaaaaaallllll / You’re my Wonder Wa-aaalllllll




Just give me the signal and I’ll shoot out a slap-bass solo like it’s no thing.




Yo suu!




Gotten so any Thom, Dick, or Harry with a terrible neck beard can just get on stage without proper grooming? No respect.




As Thom nodded off mid-strum, Boogz thought it’d be the perfect time to get in close without waking him u…




…shit.




Thank God in this light no one can see my wicked pit stains.




It was a night of Prince impressions: first the O-face power solo, then a silk screen silhouette of his guitar as a giant knob.




I wish Thom would stop winking at me whenever he sings “We’ve got heads on sticks / You’ve got ventriloquists”




The only smile of the night. Because he farted.
