Thom Yorke: ‘If I can’t enjoy this now, when do I start?’

Some of my favorite quotes:

Tortured often seems the only way to do things early on, but that in itself becomes tired.

Just being looser in your thinking allows you to avoid fixed ideas.

Thom Yorke also surfs.

Thom Yorke: What I’ve Learned

My favorite Yorkisms, complex and simplified:

All walls are great if the roof doesn’t fall.

I’ll go to the bookshop in town, grab three or four books of poetry, sit in the coffee shop, and read those for a while. It’s like loosening up your muscles before a workout.

Getting everything you want has nothing to do with anything.

I can’t imagine twenty years ahead because I’m sort of here right now.

There are so many life lessons learned in coming to Vegas, some trite but too true to ignore.

In no particular order:

  • The best things in life are achieved through raw, hard work and love for what you do
  • What goes up, must come down
  • Losing sucks, always
  • Fun is deceptive
  • The Chinese takeover is imminent, for real this time
  • Surprises are guaranteed
  • Weird is not necessarily creative, especially if it’s commercialized
  • Tattoos are meant to be temporary
  • Gambling releases dopamine but so does a like on Instagram
  • Be RƎVOLUTIONary and LOVE like the Beatles
  • Radiohead are the Beatles of our generation and nobody knows it
  • Have fun! It doesn’t last forever
  • Ignore society’s actors
  • Materialism is bunk
  • The ridiculous isn’t always remarkable when everything is ridiculous
  • Spanish is just as ubiquitous as English
  • Budgets are fragile
  • Overindulgence makes you fat, and bankrupt
  • Enjoy the ride because it’s damn short
  • Life can giveth and takeaway in a hot minute
  • Ersatz places, people, and things will never replicate the original
  • The trashy and classy lifestyle always coexist
  • What happens in Vegas, stays in life
