Björk Week: ‘You Shouldn’t Let Poets Lie To You’

We kick off Björk Week, a series of posts relentlessly focused on the world’s most beloved Icelandic maniac/genius, with this rare video of (maybe) 1980’s (maybe) Sugarcubes-era (definitely) Björk dismantling her television set.

We kick off Björk Week, a series of posts relentlessly focused on the world’s most beloved Icelandic maniac/genius, with this rare video of (maybe) 1980’s (maybe) Sugarcubes-era (definitely) Björk dismantling her television set, which is cool to watch but not something you should try at home because death by electrocution you void your warrantee and then what are you going to do.

Madrid 2020, If We May

Our third consecutive Olympic bid ends tonight. Tapas party with non-Spaniards who have promised to hold my hand for good luck, followed by a photo shoot for the exhibit.

I really want us to get this. We’ll be nice. We’ll be great. We promise to stop being so loud in trains and to never pretend to be disabled in the Paralympics again.

Please?

UPDATE September 8th: Bah.
