"The shoot was spontaneous, decided in a late-night conversation between me and Björk while we had 360-degree gear with us in Iceland..."

"... the cyclical format was perfect for the circular fugue structure of ‘Stonemilker.' We spent the early morning moving our crew and equipment onto the island where she wrote the song, being mindful of the tide, which only left us a two hour window to shoot the film."

I think I liked the video for "All is Full of Love" better. That one (with the robots) was pretty cool.

She has interesting ideas, but that voice makes me want to die. And not in ecstasy.

It's been kind of a robot/AI movie summer, with Ex Machina, then Avengers: Age of Ultron and most recently Tomorrowland. Those movies also brought us glimpses of a couple of future stars: Alicia Vikander, who played Ava in Ex Machina, and young Raffey Cassidy from Tomorrowland, who may very well be the Emily Blunt or Emma Stone of the early 2020s.

Bjork is a total bad ass.

She yelled out "Tibet! Tibet!" while doing a concert in Communist China.

So nobody is allowed to talk shit about Bjork now. She rocks.

I would have sexual intercourse with Bjork but I can't because I wouldn't want her to be disappointed.

How can you not love Bjork?

Rusty said...

Is she related to the Kardashians?

Bjork is the bomb. Loved her since The Sugarcubes.

I've Seen it All from Lars Von Trier's Dancer in the Dark.

The movie version is superior to the Selmasongs soundtrack version with Radiohead's Thom Yorke.

I've tried to watch and listen to a lot of her stuff, but I just don't get it. I'm too much an Earth man, and don't understand people from Mars.

@ EMD

Between Bjork and Lars Von Trier, you have almost enough weirdness for a trifecta.

Nice strings. The movement, words and photography evoke the Yoko Ono school of navel gazing. Yawn.

And that was one of Trier's more normal flicks. Depressing as hell, but relatively normal.

Doesn't she ever get tired of singing the same songs? They all sound alike.
