If I ever tell you I’m going to sleep and then you see me posting or liking things online for about an hour immediately after that, I promise I wasn’t lying to you, I’m just bad at going to sleep and it is usually a long process that begins with disengaging from any sort of immediate contact with people (chats, for example) and ends when everything on my screen is blurry and I’m hallucinating plot points I haven’t written yet
I swear half of anything artistic and digital is just working out how to export the file correctly so it looks/sounds like it was when you were making it
It’s like i’ve been transported back to 2001
oh my god
I kind of want to start a blog dedicated to the faces of Finn the Human because they are one of the best things about this show
iTunes selected Olsen Olsen for me so sure why not. I’d have to say that Olsen Olsen is one of my favourite Sigur tracks (maybe even in the top 5). It’s such an odd song on the album, I’m not really sure why I love it so much, but I do. It comes in the middle of this dark, ambient, brooding album, and comes after some really intense songs (mainly Viorar, Ny Batteri). Suddenly you have this song which is in 6/8 (an oddity on its own in modern music), with this sound that’s both melancholy and incredibly upbeat. But then what could possibly round off this song to make it even more of an oddity than it already is? Why, a flute solo of course! Yet the boys, like everything they do, manage to pull it off brilliantly.
It’s not been on setlists for a while until the Valtari tour (they played it a bit in 2008 but only a bit, before that it was on the 2005/2006 setlists), and I really like how it’s made a reappearance on pretty much every setlist of late – including the show I went to. I wasn’t really expecting it from memory, since I wasn’t following setlists hugely at the time for various reasons, but it sounded so incredible. And then they blended it straight into Festival, which was an experience on its own…man, I love Olsen Olsen.
