Bjork has a new record coming out pretty soon, and I have to say I am looking forward to it. I have always viewed Bjork as a sort of avant-garde female Tom Waits. She has written some truly amazing music, and her songs can be either pain-stakingly beautiful or so far left field that it makes vaudeville seem boring. Anyway, here is a link to check out some info on her new record, Volta. Please try not to destroy my feelings by yelling at me for not inserting the umlauts in her name, as the application I am using to type this does not allow for really cool literary features that are generally there just to tickle the fancies of hipsters and literature elitists alike. The article also talks about some upcoming unreleased tracks by Elliott Smith, who is also worth checking out if you haven't yet.
Also in the world of shockingly asinine news that should not be news due to its high contamination of idiocy, there are apparently more and more states that are looking to thumbprint people who sell used CD's to record stores. Now don't get me wrong, I am all for id'ing people who sell CD's just in case they get a batch of stolen music, but thumbprinting? Big Brother apparently is watching us.
Lean against the night and laugh as I try to scale the walls
