Oh, I'd forgotten how very much I love the Icelandic band Sigur Rós. The very first time I'd heard their music was when I saw them play at the 9:30 Club in DC; they were absolutely hypnotic.  I was totally overwhelmed. I mean, I utterly lost myself in their music. Time and place had little bearing on my awareness.

It doesn't seem to matter where I find myself or in what circumstances; when I hear their music I am engaging in this world from another plane.  It sounds corny, but it is true. I can't really say that about any other band. They are atmospheric and thrilling and delirious.

Thanks, Josef, for reminding me.


  1. I have another friend that simply loves that band too.

  2. Sweet! I, too, am One with Tunes...

  3. Those weird Icelandicerianieseish peoples.

    That video kicked ass. Thank you for sharing. I did not realize that most Icelandic children could fly.

    Flib and I have totally wanted to go to Iceland for a while now.
