Your site sucks. Fire your user experience designer. It will be better for all of us.


M asked me to download the new radiohead album for her. I cant find it in that mess of 1990 style web design. Web -8?

I will probably buy it from itunes, drm included, simply because it will be easier to find, easier to pay for, and easier to download.

Dumbasses.

You could try to buy the Radiohead album from
 iTunes with DRM, but you are bound to fail, as radiohead doesnt offer "rainbow candyland" or whatever that thing was named in anything other than drmless format.

Not that I would know, as I still haven't heard anything from said album, nor will I ever.

But was Beardy Dude In A Dress wearing a long blue number with some black pumps on freitag? Or was that just another middle aged dude who likes the comfort of kiltsdresses?

As I pretty much ran through, got a salad, and bugged the fuck out, but that sounds like him.

Wait.. by Driusan (4.00 / 2) #2 Sun Apr 27, 2008 at 07:44:37 AM EST
They're dumbasses for designing the site in a way that convinces you to pay for their album instead of downloading it for free?

otherwise I would take one glance at the site and say; "fuck it"

Not a fan of radiohead anyway. I consider them analogous to coldplay (vomitous)

You need to go to the official download site instead.

Maybe they should think about downsizing the synergistic leveraging committee.

I recommend always assuming 7th normal form where items in a text column are not allowed to rhyme.

All your experiences will occur as we design them, and not a jot different.

a webmaster created that mess on radiohead's site. One of the problems I see with software developers who work on the web is that they think they know everything and wont recognize other people specialise.


Software developers ruin projects through their arrogance.
