Björk

I love Björk.

Her album "Post" is awesome, one of my favorites.

Just an excuse to show off these lovely photos from her Interview magazine shoot.



Can you believe the woman is 43 years old?? That Icelandic water is good to her (albeit full of crazies, because WOW she can't style herself).

I admire her outspokenness, her unwillingness to compromise, and the firm decisions she makes, whether or not I agree with them. I also admire how much she's willing to go out on a limb with her music, even though I don't like all of it.

This was supposed to be a quick post about the Interview photos, but I got sucked in. Thom Yorke once said that "Unravel" is his favorite song, and Radiohead ended up doing a (great) cover of it:


And one of my favorite music videos, Björk being directed by Spike Jonze for "It's Oh So Quiet," one of the best songs off "Post":

Thank you, thank you!

I actually did nothing for my birthday, have postponed it to next week.

It hasn't quite sunk in yet that I'm 27, which seems much older than 26.

The music video for "Pagan Poetry" freaked me out!
