Um.. right.

Ok, many many things I SHOULD post about, however right now I'm talking about Iceland.

There is a growing movement to get me to Iceland for new years, well when I say growing... two people, but thats more than a week ago.. so it has grown. I'm not against this idea, I'd love to go.. however my one concern is money. I'd like to spend some more time out there than just a couple of days (all I'd prolly be able to get off from work) concidering the price...

Which sucks because I REALLY think its a good idea.

Why does the world revolve around money? Anyone?

Anyhow.. so thats one thing. We'll see how that works out...

Also, on the radio tonight I heard two cool icelandic bands/artists as XFM (THE 'Alternative' radio station here) was doing an Icelandic special.. they contrasted a lot in style, but both v.cool.

I hope the icelanders and the icelandophiles on my friends list will forgive me for mauling the name, but one was a rock band called.. er.. Meanus? Minous? Something in that style of kidney anyhow. Sound familar? V.heavy hardcore rock, but quite good at that (something that doesn't usually go together). And the other was a guy called Johan Johanson with a track that had the most beautiful strings in it, and a electronically filtered voice over it.. beautiful, but I have no idea what it was called.

Anyone help with any of this?

heh.. was a pretty cool show actually.

I was kind of surprised they didn't mention Sigur Ros at all... prolly the most well known icelanders since Bjork...

Not like they didn't feature stuff in that vein.. *shrugs*
