Happy birthday, Red Blue Green!

Friday marked this blog's first anniversary/birthday/year of existence, which I somehow neglected to make mention of or celebrate in any way. I've come a long way from my first post (and an even longer way from my MySpace blog, which I began in December of 2005), and I'd like to start an anniversary tradition: the embedding of a video wherein Thom Yorke performs the beautiful song that gave Red Blue Green its name. Enjoy!

Of course, I could also take a modified version of the survey I used to kick off the MySpace blog nearly three years ago:
