Gene Simmons may not be too pleased with Radiohead’s recent digital-distribution experiment, but the still-unsigned-to-a-major Courtney Love is thinking of going the In Rainbows route with her next record. Only she wants to one-up Thom Yorke and the gang by releasing her “A-list material”–and not a bunch of cobbled-together tracks that have been percolating for a while and that got lapped up by the Internet as OMG THE GREATEST THING EVER anyway–on her own terms, and not just as a “promotional stunt for the CD,” and after she does Oprah.
as for radiohead= they didcnt jump off a REAL clifff, they bungee jumped you KNOW the kamikaze pilot in me wnats to do the same dfamm thing excapt wuith my a lsit mnaterial, with the real thing- theyve made 9.7 m,illion in 3 weeks this way and its live junk-= not junk as radioheaddoesnt really amke JUNK but its live – most of it heard before( wich youve all heard liveversaionbs of things veryvery different than non live versions of things) i really think it couldf work do all my magazine covers in january – so the lead time in there kamikaze thropugh my junket my oprah my tv shit n the 2 week leaD UP and just jump of f that cliff i love doing things really first im greatful for radiohead for making the first move- id do it differentlyt -= thats why b sides are no longer b sisdes but have to be a sides to an extent-= cos theyre EXTRA TRACKS now wich can mean up to 500k to such and such sponsor coty./my space etc. …

Not that I know what “rime management” is, but hey, I’d kick Courtney some money for a self-financed album. Especially now that she’s trying to fashion herself as the Suze Orman of the rocker-chick set, as evidenced by the title of the post where she floats her Radiohead idea:
