RadioheadPerhaps it’s my own fault. I didn’t try and pre-order the album, I just thought I’d head over to inrainbows.com this morning and spend, I dunno, £5 on the thing. That’s like 70 bucks at this point, right? However (and I’m assuming it’s because of high demand and not a “denial of service” attack) the site was so desperately slow I wasn’t ever able to get through. And now, heading over there gets you a request for a username and password, which, when you don’t enter them, because what the hell, you get this lovely, personalized message from the band: SSI error: recursion exceeded. Beep! Well, people have been telling me my recursion is looking a little excessive lately. I don’t appear to be the only one having this trouble, either. Hmm. Perhaps reports of the music industry’s death have been greatly exaggerated?

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
