Two things on the first Friday of May:
1) Another track from Radiohead's new album that's scheduled for digital release this Sunday, May 8th!
Love the ominous ending, digging this more than "Burn the Witch". Useless trivia: the retro-looking house in the video is the home of Stefanie Wilder-Taylor who co-hosts a super annoying podcast with Lynette Carolla (wife of comedian Adam Carolla from the now defunct Loveline radio show).
Here's an excerpt from an episode of the podcast where Stefanie details how her house was scouted.
In a new episode of For Crying Out Loud, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor tells a story about the Boogie Nights filmmaker shooting part of the new video in her house. “Oh, this happened, I forgot to tell you! So, I’m at home and there’s a knock at the door… there’s a guy with a clipboard. I come to the door with a scowl on my face and the guy says, ‘Hey, we’re in the neighbourhood, we’re going to be shooting a music video.’ So now, I’m thinking you’re basically telling me – what happens a lot in my neighbourhood, because it’s a very typical suburban looking neighbourhood – I’m gonna be inconvenienced.”
She then explains she was told for $200, they’d like to film in her home. “Then the guy goes – ‘it’s Radiohead!’ I can’t tell you anything about it. I’m guessing that’s the non-disclosure part. Between us girls, Radiohead – I don’t give a shit, I don’t get it. I’ve heard one song I don’t care about – ‘Creep’. Yeah, you’re a creep and a loser and you’re putting me to sleep.
“Here’s the cool part. Then the next day, the guy goes, I wanna bring the director by your house… this guy comes in, says ‘hey, this is the director, Paul’… really normal looking guy. Then I say, ‘hey, you look kind of familiar… Have we met?’ Do you make anything apart from music videos?” The filmmaker then explains he directed There Will Be Blood, according to Wilder-Taylor. “I was like, ‘Oh shit!'”
2) Grim Sleeper verdicts bring justice to forgotten victims of serial killer. Finally.
Here's how they found him:
The trial highlighted the difficulty authorities encountered in identifying the perpetrator until breakthroughs in DNA science helped detectives zero in on Franklin. Police began to connect the victims after the discovery of Peters, whose body was found in a garbage bag inside a dumpster in 2007. DNA taken from her crime scene matched evidence from two earlier slayings, prompting investigators to begin matching the DNA with killings from the 1980s and more recent deaths up to the early 2000s.
Investigators, however, did not know to whom the DNA belonged.
In 2008, officials checked DNA taken from state prisoners but didn't find a match.
A year later, then-state Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown approved a new technique called a “familial search” that allowed officials to check whether a crime suspect's DNA partly matched that of anyone in the state's offender DNA database.
Another check produced a partial match to Franklin's son, whose DNA had been taken when he was arrested in 2008 and charged with firearm and drug offenses.
Investigators focused their efforts on the elder Franklin and launched a surveillance operation.
Jurors were shown a video of an undercover LAPD detective posing as a busboy at a Buena Park pizza restaurant where Franklin was attending a child's birthday party in 2010. The detective could be seen retrieving a half-eaten slice of pizza, a fork, two napkins, two plastic cups and a piece of chocolate cake from Franklin.
The items were used to analyze his DNA — which matched genetic material found at some of the crime scenes and on the bodies of some of the women.
Here's HBO's documentary film on the Grim Sleeper. Recommended viewing, one of the best true crime documentaries out there.
