Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] morganmuffle for helping me to get it! It's so pretty! I've had it for a couple of days now, but life has been too hectic to squee about it until now :D

This was put on the door downstairs that leads to our cycle shed. Two bikes have been stolen (and found back in the bushes nearby) the last couple of weeks:

It says
“Entrance only allowed for residents.
So not for stealing assholes.”

As if that helps.

Bonus!Stephen Fry: who is innocent, but adorable )

Grammy rehearsals with Radiohead: 'There's a surreality to it all'

The 51st Annual Grammy Awards are Sunday night, and the rehearsal schedule for today is stacked with big names -- U2, Paul McCartney, Coldplay and Stevie Wonder -- but the day got off to an especially compelling start as Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead strolled in, shook off the rain and performed "15 Step" to the impressive accompaniment of the USC marching band.

Radiohead has racked up a fair number of Grammy accolades through the years (the band enters Sunday with five nominations for "In Rainbows," including its third career nomination for top album) but trophy galas are simple not its scene.

"I've called through years but the answer was always a polite no," said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the show since 1980.

This year, the answer was yes, and there was crackling energy in the venue as the band ran through its number.

Yorke arrived looking more like a fan than a star with his scruffy leather jacket, bed-head hair and khaki-colored backpacker. He danced a little jig in the aisles as USC's Spirit of Troy warmed up with -- of course -- the Fleetwood Mac hit "Tusk."

The crew of the show is hard to impress, but by the third take it was all eyes on the stage as Yorke gave an animated interpretation of the song, one that somehow sounds both cerebral and tribal.

"Can you make my voice sound a little bit less shiny," Yorke asked the sound team. "Take the top off -- I like the idea of belting it out with these guys."

The USC band members were clearly thrilled with the prospect of a national spotlight as temporary members of Radiohead. Afterward, Greenwood said the marching band was an idea that he and Yorke brought with them to L.A.

"It's something we've been wanting to do with this song for a long time," he said.

He also said he was a bit dazed by the Grammys and its big tent, which has room for the band as well as the Jonas Brothers and Lil Wayne. "We never encounter any of these worlds," Greenwood said. "There's a surreality to it all."

I'm SO excited! In fact, if I'm able to find a good stream for the Grammys then I will probably suffer through it just to see their performance.

Picspam of excitement! )

My ridiculous cute dog Abeltje has been hiding away in my parents bedroom, because idiots outside are blowing fireworks to pieces. He has really been hiding, as in: sitting between blankets, boxes and cushions that are on the ground looking adorable. How cute is that?

Here, have another pic of The Cuteness:

(and before you ask: he's actually not a puppy. He's a 'big' 3 year old miniature wired-haired dachshund. Just so you know ;))

I will make a post of Squee about Keane and a post about why I love Merlin more than I should and ZOMG Top Gear has started again, and Pushing Daisies is really fun as well and all that. But until I can find the courage to type all that out, I leave you with some pics.

Last Saturday, when I was still in Florence, some monstrous idiotic excuse for a four-legged barking cuddle-machine (a Berner Mountain dog) attacked MY little, fluffy, adorkable dog. My parents didn't tell, until I arrived back home, but still: awwwwwww! He's only so small (and it was his own stupid fault)! He's going to be okay, though. He's already as stupid as ever.

However, we have to stop him from getting to his wounds and it simply makes me cry with laughter. Exactly how ridiculous is this??? :D
