When in Iceland, do as the Icelanders do

I know that it's hardly Iceland here. It's not even below freezing today, but the temps did plummet from yesterday, when it was insanely warm, and people were running around in shorts. Today it's wintry again and grey, perfect conditions for a little Bjork. Her heavy accent and wailings, and the sometimes stark musical landscape backing her up, hit the spot on a cold, sunless day. I love you, Bjork. You're a true original.

  1. Hey, I have this album. I like the song about flying above the volcano, or something like that.

  2. This is an awesome album. I like Venus as a Boy, Human Behavior and Anchor Song. Iceland rules! They elected the world's first female president and just appointed a lesbian prime minister. I wish I was born there.

  3. Iceland IS way cool. Just being Iceland makes them cool. I think that song Marc is referring to is "One day". There is a part that goes: "One day, one day, when you're ready, an aeroplane will curve gracefully around the volcano"
