ICELANDIC MUSIC PRIMER or Bjork For Universal President Overlord

Hi there. That's a nice t-shirt you are wearing, or not wearing. Have you been working out? I thought so. 


So, here's the end of our journey. The long and winding road has come to its close. And yet, we're still here, together. but guess what, bitch? I'm letting go of your hand!


ICELAND:  COME VISIT. WE'RE BROKE. MITT ROMNEY COULD BUY US. 


what name is first in Icelandic music? or anything really? BJORK. 


I was googling "how to piss off an Eskimo" earlier and I thought of ways to piss off Bjork, as to make that train of thought relevant. 


here are are some methods:
- talk to her about art
- poke her with a stick
- blame her for global warming
- tell her to vote for Ron Paul
- greet her at the airport. be like "welcome to Philadelphia, Bjork!" WHAM


oh, who comes after Bjork? Sigur Ros, obviously. Let's group Jonsi (lead singer) in with that.




so pretty!


I am fortunate enough to share my birthday with the next lady. well and Janet Jackson, but this isn't about her:


Emiliana Torrini! she actually took over for Bjork when Bjork was too prego for the LOTR soundtrack. sucks for Bjork, money in the bank for Emiliana


$$$$$


Leaves are kind of like Sigur Ros.


yup.


Ampop are a recent discovery of mine and I QUITE like them.




As are Of Monsters And Men.




what do you think? it's a small group of artists, fitting for a small country. ICELANDDDD:  a volcano formed us. ICELANDDDDDD: we're the size of Kentucky. man, the possibilities of tourism slogans are truly endless here. 


read this if you want to know how to piss off an Eskimo

so that's it! that ends our trip. our cultural expedition. I feel fulfilled. what about you? also, will you pay for me to travel around Scandinavia and sleep with everyone? say yes!


he told me he thinks you are pretty, so he got you this.

  1. "greet her at the airport" LOLOLOLOL

    Iceland fascinates me! Great post Britt! The Icelandic accent (when they speak English) is the cutest by the way. I've watched interviews of Icelandic people on Youtube just to listen to the accent.

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
