here's a fun practical joke to play on someone who allergic to sugar cane:
stuff a kinder egg capsule with sugar packets (one with a hole) from a restaurant that hasn't existed in 10 years and sneak it into a parcel while your wife isn't looking so when the recipient opens it, thinking how considerate it was of her parents to send her the toy but not the chocolate, she and her apartment get covered in sugar

Radiohead: OK Computer (1997)
For a band that started out peddling gimmicky, formulaic grunge via 1993鈥檚 鈥淐reep鈥 (the angsty single gave every indication of a copycat band, as undistinguished as Bush!), Radiohead sure came into their own via 鈥95鈥檚 magnificent The Bends.聽
Like most people, I felt that 鈥97鈥檚 OK Computer was equally spectacular, though I only started spinning the album intensely during my only, rather miserable Minneapolis winter of 鈥98/鈥99, which may explain why I associated mostly chilly, wintry vibes with these songs, until I revisited them this week.
At its best, OK Computer erects veritable edifices to atmospheric melancholy, none of them 鈥渢aller鈥 than 鈥淜arma Police鈥 (part waltz, part religious hymn), 鈥淣o Surprises鈥 (a lullaby to alienation) and 鈥淧aranoid Android鈥 (hard rock mid-section notwithstanding), and each of them elevated, humanized by Thom Yorke鈥檚 anguished pathos.
Not that there鈥檚 anything minimalist about the album (beyond its cover art), because all of this subtlety and understatement obviously required a hell of a lot of work -- and nearly a year in the studio -- to conjure up!
This becomes evident just as soon as first cut 鈥淎irbag鈥 floats sinister power chords and flamenco-flavored fast-picking (I wish I could say it was black metal-inspired) over those trip-hop beats, and is further illustrated by other standouts like聽鈥淟et Down,鈥 鈥淟ucky鈥 and slow-building 鈥淭he Tourist.鈥
Even the album鈥檚 lesser lights (e.g. 鈥淓xit Music (For a Film),鈥 鈥淓lectioneering,鈥 鈥淐limbing Up the Walls,鈥 etc.) ultimately contribute to the whole, binding the highlights together into a truly immersive listening experience that鈥檚 no doubt largely responsible for the album attaining -- and retaining -- its 鈥渃lassic鈥 status, down the years.
Like all of history鈥檚 truly brilliant albums, OK Computer is聽greater than the sum of its parts, and yet those parts, all on their lonesome, are pretty fucking great, as well.
There鈥檚 not much more to talk about, between Radiohead and me ...
Surprisingly, I really liked 2000鈥檚 electronics-drenched Kid A; and聽a timely road trip to watch the band play a massive outdoor gig in Montreal conveniently聽spirited me out of New York City in the nick of time to avoid the 鈥楪reat Big Power Outage鈥 of 2003.
But, by then, I鈥檇 frankly given up on the band, after feeling entirely unmoved by 2001鈥檚 Amnesiac聽and 鈥03鈥檚 Hail to the Thief聽-- can鈥檛 remember a single fucking song from either one -- though you鈥檙e welcome to state a case in their defense.
The last time I paid any attention to Radiohead, it was because of the fan-friendly, cutting-edge, flexible pricing model they rolled out with 鈥07鈥檚聽In Rainbows,聽and I鈥檒l always respect them for that聽(you can count the number of superstar acts who have since followed this progressive and altruistic model on one hand), plus their superlative second, third, and fourth albums.
More 鈥90s Alternative Rock: The Afghan Whigs鈥 Black Love, Catherine Wheel鈥檚 Chrome, Ben Folds Five鈥檚 Ben Folds Five, Foo Fighters鈥 The Colour and the Shape, Jellyfish鈥檚 Spilt Milk, L7鈥檚 Bricks Are Heavy, Manic Street Preachers鈥 The Holy Bible, Mother Love Bone鈥檚 Apple, Nirvana鈥檚 Nevermind,聽Pearl Jam鈥檚 Ten, Screaming Trees鈥 Dust, Smashing Pumpkins鈥 Gish, Soundgarden鈥檚 Badmotorfinger, Sugar鈥檚 Copper Blue, Therapy?鈥檚 Troublegum,聽Toadies鈥 Rubberneck, U2鈥檚聽Zooropa.

My father and I were just talking about how it's finally feeling like spring, after a full week above zero degrees Celsius(yay), when realized that I had forgotten to post my pictures of the sugar bush from last weekend:

For those who don't know, a sugar bush is where maple sap is gathered to make maple syrup. There were demonstrations of how it was made historically and how the process evolved.
It was a wonderful time, the hike was nice and long,

the weather was brisk, it was so nice, I even stopped to feed the chickadees.

And pretty soon, it鈥檒l be sugaring time at Loopy De Loop鈥檚 own sugar bush (more of a hobby than anything) in the Estrie region of Quebec, producing soft maple sugar as is something of a tradition among fellow Funtastics.
(Incidentally, soft maple sugar was chosen over straight maple syrup inasmuch as maple syrup bottles risk being broken or damaged in transit, even when the Customs declaration form clearly states that such is a聽鈥済ift.鈥 Too, maple syrup can be produced from maple sugar.)
