basically at the radiohead boiler room when i was talking/dancing next to thom all the radiohead 4chan diseases that were watching were like, trending me on twitter and tumblr and shit. there was LOADS of stuff. i gained like 40 twitter followers and was bombarded with spam messages from them. 25 facebook friend requests and +20 subscribers to my feed. 4 inbox messages from people i didn't even know. stuff like this:http://pressdonotswallow.tumblr.com/pos … -shirt-day
people were still fussing over me ages later. i turned into like a meme. 'a rare photo of plaid shirt guy'. here's me behind caribouhttp://thom-yorke.tumblr.com/post/11381 … -shirt-guy
Dear Plaid Shirt Guy,
Yes, I know everyone wears plaid shirts, but you looked really good in yours. I thought to myself how good it would be if I took you home, and then in the morning, before you woke up, I could steal your shirt and wear it myself.
one trillion mentions.
i was also mentioned in passing on The Guardian paper when they did their after-morning 'we're cool and with it' write-up of the radiohead boiler room, talking about people in the crowd getting more attention than the actual music. someone wrote up this huge fictitious 'lord plaid guy' medieval tale and narrated my quest to befriend thom yorke (lol) and drew proper animated pictures and everything. i'm trying to find them but shit moves fast on tumblr and it has been 2 months. basically the topic was #plaid guy or #plaid shirt guy.
