“Any clown with a internet connection can look up “Disorderly Conduct” and see that it’s reserved for PUBLIC conduct, not conduct in one’s own home. Moreover, the mere fact that the Cambridge Po Po’s dropped the charges that very next day lets you know that the arrest was more of an Officer Crowley Bully/’Don’t talk back to me’ Special than anything else. And clearly, that’s not his f*cking job. His job is to serve the people. His job is to protect the people. His job is NOT to protect his own fragile ego or his right to bully people around.

It took the band a year and a half to learn how to play the final version in live performance.
Final fact: Paranoid Android, and the rest of OK Computer was recorded in the 15th Century mansion of actress, Jane Seymour. She was away shooting Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman at the time. I’m not kidding.
