Radiohead Fans Create Charity DVD, Band Approves

When you think about dedicated fans, Radiohead is a band that has some of the most diehard. In fact, we recently told you about a group who have spent the past year creating a bootleg DVD of a performance the band gave in Hollywood last year.

The performance was last January at the Henry Fonda Theatre, and was held to aid victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Dozens of celebrity fans attended the event, including Daniel Craig, Rosanna Arquette, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Charlize Theron, but 14 random fans in the crowd decided to shoot footage of the show.

After fan videos began showing up on Youtube, a few decided it might be a good idea to collect the footage and edit them into a DVD. Thus came Radiohead For Haiti— which features the band playing favorites such as “Kid A”, “Exit Music”, “Pyramid Song”, “The Bends”, “Paranoid Android” and “Street Spirit (Fade Out)”.

Radiohead has officially given their full support to the DVD, and that’s because all proceeds go directly to Oxfam’s Haiti Emergency Fund. They have so much love for the effort that they even put a link to buy the DVD on their website. How cool! The renegade style film has already raised more than $11,500 for the charity, proving once again that Radiohead fans are LEGIT.

Bob Ferguson, a member of Oxfam, said about the DVD, “We are thrilled to have the support of Radiohead and their smart and motivated fans to help us raise much needed funds for our work in Haiti.” He then added, “It’s especially important now, as the one-year anniversary of the earthquake is here, that this project helps to remind people that the dire situation in Haiti is far from over, and that continued support from the rest of the world is needed.”

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
