Sounds like Jónsi. No clue what it is, though.

2:05 pm - Hoppípolla remix

Hey, don't know if anyone is all that interested but here's a trance remix of Hoppípolla by Chicane called (brace yourself) Poppíholla. It was definitely amusing to hear at least. I don't think there's anything exactly wrong with it, it just feels a bit bland to me but that's only my opinion and it's up to you to judge!

I just saw this on TV and was pleased (and surprised) to hear a familiar song coming in at 1:05.

7:52 am - BAND UPDATE

From http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/news/?p=1097

"an update on what the band has been up to lately. recently we announced that jónsi and alex will release an album in the summer, and that kjartan is set to score the film ‘ondine’. we are now happy to announce that kjartan will also be writing and arranging strings for 4 songs on coldplay’s as-yet-untitled follow up album to 2008’s acclaimed ‘viva la vida’. kjartan has already completed most of the arrangements, which are set to be recorded in late spring. in addition to kjartan’s contribution, jónsi will join chris martin on vocals on one of the album’s songs. we were fortunate enough to be allowed to visit coldplay’s rehearsal space while jónsi and chris were rehearsing their collaboration, which promises to be nothing short of amazing. we filmed a short video from the session, which is now viewable on youtube here."

Hi hi, I'm getting some new ink next week and I'm planning on getting one of two things: either the drummer boy with the birds from the cover of the Riceboy Sleeps book, or the other drummer boy stencil. I have seen the other drummer boy stencil before but cannot find a picture anywhere. If anyone has it, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks!

9:32 am - Album review

Last week, I posted a review of "With a buzz in our ears we play endlessly" on my writing community blue_birds_fly .

LINK if you're interested.

English is not my native language, so be kind! (this community is actually a way for me to make progress in my expression!) The community is relatively new, but if you're interested in what I write, feel free to browse around & friend it. ;))

abbeyftw what is the translation of the new album's title? I know the last part is "we play endlessly".

 So I am a little late on this boat but I wanted to say that I really enjoy the new album!!!

On another note and hopefully this doesn't ruin this for anyone. I was watching the movie Penelope last night and what did I find to be the last song in the movie (before the end credits), it was none other than Sigur Ros's Hoppipolla!!

I can't deny how extremely excited I was to hear a Sigur Ros song during a movie! It was completely unexpected and just plain awesome!

Hope everyone is having a lovely day!

9:26 pm - Sigur Ros @ The Chicago Theatre--Wednesday, 09.24.08

Hi Everyone,

Happy to find a community for Sigur Ros; I'm a Chicago area gal who just joined so I could tearfully read glowing reviews of tomorrow night's show at The Chicago Theatre. I've wanted to see Sigur Ros for...ever, and almost had a chance to go tomorrow. (My husband ebay-ed for tix for me as super amazing surprise, and an amazing surprise it was indeed.) That said, a few hours ago, our sitter called and completely flaked for tomorrow. We've called everyone possible to locate another sitter, but to no avail.

It probably goes without saying that I AM CRUSHED.

That said, I have two tickets to the show tomorrow night at The Chicago Theatre @ 8 PM. MNFL3R, row FF. We paid $175 on ebay, and I'm looking to get $125 for them if possible. I just moved out to the western 'burbs but we can meet up out this way or near The Chicago Theatre anytime from early afternoon until the show starts, really. If you're interested, hit me up in the comments, please?

(Mod(s): Please delete this post if it's not allowed in the comm and accept my apologies--I just hate for such awesome tickets to go to waste, especially since the show is sold out.) :/

For all of you going tomorrow night, have an amazing time. ( ) remains one of my favorite albums of all time.


current mood: crushed

1:09 pm - mini concert report

I did a really, really mini, partially fanboyish concert report for NY 9/18/08 here if anyone's interested in reading dorky commentary.

Also, anyone have fun pictures from it? Talk about a great show, eh?

8:50 am - Sigur Ros presales


Just wanted to say that I will definitely be doing presales for Sigur Ros in the future. I did for the Minneapolis show and got my tickets in the mail last week?


I am so happy.

Hope you are all enjoying the shows! I see them next Thursday for my first time and I am so excited.

current mood: artistic

abbeyftw Is there anywhere where "Agaetis Byrjun" or "takk" is handwritten by the band? the same handwriting that's on the website and stuff. I think it's jonsi's writing?
