Continuing the musical theme, and the theme of trying to keep my mind off the fact that in six days I’m going to experience either the most uplifting moment in my political lifetime or the most profoundly depressing one, the following Sigur Rós video is dedicated to Adam, who I’m guessing could also use a reminder that there are more important things in the world than a silly presidential election. (And to Sven, because I apparently am unable to type “Svefn-g-englar” without a great deal of effort to avoid typing his name.)

I heard Nic Harcourt play this song this morning on KCRW during my drive in to work, and couldn’t get it out of my head. Now I’ve googled up the video, and I can’t get that out of my head either.

    Thanks John. I looked up the word, and Svefn-g-englar means “Sleepwalkers” or “Sleep Angels” in Icelandic, which would offer some explanation to the video. I am curious how the word would be pronounced though. To think some people say my name is a tongue twister. hmm.

    Five more days.

    Haha. Though I would think of it as Death Island, since I played the multiplayer maps a lot more than the campaign-mode maps.
