Alarms and Surprises

Merlin Mann just posted a link to the video for Radiohead’s No Surprises.

I love OK Computer. I still consider it their greatest album. I haven’t listened to it in years, and have never seen the video until now.

It is amazing. While part of me has long been tired with their music, another part will always bow to their brilliance. Every detail of this video, as with the song, is pure genius.

Life is precisely about the alarms and surprises. To give those up is like trying to make the (failed) argument that to not exist is better than to exist.
