      @rexy, don’t hate me, Radiohead is probably my favorite band in the world, or at least one of the three most loved! I’ve actually broken up with boyfriends because they didn’t love Radiohead enough.

      But practically every other actor/director/whatever who appeared in the Guest DJ project before me was picking Radiohead tracks, and it seemed right to focus on other material.

      Had those other Hollywood luzers not spoiled the fun, my dilemma would have then been, which to select: “Let Down,” “Planet Telex,” “Kid A,” “Subterranean Homesick Alien,” “Everything in Its Right Place,” “Optimistic,” “Airbag,” “Sail to the Moon,” or “Pyramid Song.” And that’s WAY MORE THAN FIVE, BUB.

    Liveblogging your id is awesome. I do it all the time. ;) I was trying to find another song to dedicate to you and this is what I came up with:

    You are fierce, fearless. I like that. Alot.

    Everything in Its Right Place! A masterpiece, and in 5/4 to boot.

    I adore this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BK5zx3w-Iq8&feature=PlayList&p=5D5E0C1CF32E5CD2&playnext=1&index=26

    I like your smile, Xeni.
    That’s why the sadness in some of your GuestDJ picks kind of surprised me.

    Bamboo has never been the same.

    hah any girl that can break up with a man over radiohead is the perfect girl for me..
    your right though choosing just one would be hard. i would have chosen something no one really knows like the brilliant song known as cuttooth or even the amazing sounds of orgy..
    i do like your latter choices though for music so its not so bad…you really can’t go wrong with david or brian eno

    there is always next time xeni! well maybe.

    That’s pretty damn cool. Bonus points for including Isao Tomita! :)

    That was a really wonderful listen, Xeni.

    Xeni, you just went up a notch on the hotness scale in my book. KCRW is one of the few things I still miss about living in Los Angeles.

    Plus – KCRW is Harry Shearer’s home station.
