03. Scatterheart
04. Jóga
05. Hunter

10. Sídasta Ég
11. Pagan poetry
12. Bachelorette
13. Hyper-ballad
14. It's In Our Hands (SPT mix)
15. Pluto

encore
16. Generous palmstroke
17. Human behaviour

I loved "Dancer in the Dark" but I also think it was kind of sadistic. That character was so pathetic and then the whole film you watch her just beaten to a pulp (figuratively). It was devastating!

I just got tickets to see her in conversation with Hilton Als in NYC later this month as part of the New Yorker magazine festival which I am attending for work. Somehow I managed to convince my boss that an interview with Bjork is an important literary event that I need to be present for.

it must have been wonderful joyfulgirl.
I didn't think the character Selma was pathetic or the movie sadistic. It was sad and shocking though. She allowed her principles to carry her to her fate. A tragedy.

I could have sworn I was listening to Bjork on the radio yesterday afternoon, covering an old song( the title of which escapes me at the moment) It sounded so much like her. It was a Norwegian band called "flunk", a track from a compilation album of bands covering old songs.
ahhhhhh I just remembered the song.."Blue Monday".
I only have the "post" album....so far. Bjork is on my "to buy" list

Maybe 'pathetic' wasn't the best choice of words, but I didn't mean it in any derisive sense. I meant it in the sense that Selma's circumstances were so sad, grim and hopeless, her personality so innocent and childlike, that she evoked incredible compassion from the viewer who then just had to sit and helplessly watch her horrifying and unreasonably harsh fate unfold. So to me it was kind of sadistic in that it was like watching a little bunny rabbit get abused and slaughtered.

BUT, despite my issues with the script and director, Bjork's performance was brilliant. In fact, I got obsessed with seeing it again over the weekend and searched all over town for a copy to rent or buy but couldn't find it.

Great article, DiGi. I think this is an interesting viewpoint:

Quote:
But for all that, Björk remains curiously isolated, her music more loved than influential. Radiohead, probably her closest rival in the intersection of popularity and critical acclaim that makes up at least one definition of greatness, has spawned countless baby Radioheads. Björk has no copycats, no one feeding so obviously off her achievements, because those achievements are so alien. Radiohead is very much of our time, the musical zeitgeist for the millennium, but Björk and her music come from a different time and place. There are two options in placing Björk: Either she is an anomaly, brilliant but finally irrelevant, or she is the most important and forward-looking musician of her generation. In either case, we will need to wait 50 years to really make sense of what she has done, and absorb her influence in any useful way.

just wanted to thank Bjork...I wonder if she knows what a poker machine is?

On the way to Brisbane on the weekend, the only way I could catch up with an old friend was to call in briefly at the club where she works. She was very busy, so i waited and dropped $2 in a poker machine to pass some time. I always choose a particular machine because of the "artwork" it displays. I chose one with penguins wearing headphones because I sincerely believe at one stage , my headphones saved my life. I got 4 penguins in a row and won $20...and I spent it in Brisbane...on a Bjork CD!!

Ok, here's some news and info on the upcoming album that is VERY interesting (vocals only, no instrumentation, etc):

http://www.rollingstone.com/news/sto...region=single1


I also thought I'd put in here that I finally got her Greatest Hits cd a few months back, and I've been loving it!!! HeartlandGirl made sure I ripped some songs from the Dancer in the Dark soundtrack when she was here too


By the way, I also thought I'd throw in that 'Live' versions of all her studio albums have just been released recently. Surprised there hasnt really been anything about any of this on here yet!!!

I've had the lucky pleasure of seeing Bjork live twice, in 94 and 96 and for both gigs I had front row, standing positions. She is truly great live, her voice is brilliant. I loved the sugarcubes and loved Debut and Post, but after that I kinda fell out of Bjork, I didnt really like her other albums. Fave songs would be,

SUGARCUBES
Birthday
Hit
Regina
Motorcrash
Deus Remix (this is possibly THE BEST remix or re-working of a song you are ever likely to hear, it is just stunning and sooo totally different to the original, the original is good, but the remix is great!)

SOLO
Isobel
Come to me
Venus as a boy (this song always makes me think of the ZOOTV gig I went to, back in 93, as I must of heard it like 5 times on the day of the concert)
Human Behaviour

I need to win the lottery so I can buy all the live albums and the new one.

Seriously, the new album sounds like it has to potential to be very cool. I think Rahzel was the DJ/announcer on SSX Tricky, so I'm stoked to see him on board for this.
