Holy moly, it's been a while! Normally I should apologize for how lame my posts are, but now I just need to apologize for the lack thereof. Glass half full? Anyhow- I think I will go back and cover ground from November-on. Sorry, but this blog is mainly for my journaling so feel free to skip around.
So! For my birthday Clayton got me tickets to see Jonsí in concert at the Fillmore. Jonsí is the lead singer of one of our top 3 all time favorite bands, Sigur Rós. He was touring for his first solo album, "Go". It was fantastic! We had neighbors "village up" and take shifts to watch Eleanor so we could make the trip to Detroit and back without worrying. We stopped at Pei Wei for dinner which is a total treat for me. I love that place. Why aren't there any of those nearer Lansing? Seriously folks. Anyhow, Here are our pictures!
And if you are interested, here is a snippet from one of our favorite songs off of the album, Kolniður. The graphics behind the band are kind of blurry. It's off my camera. I'm sure there are better bits on you tube.
So that was awesome. He played at least four new songs and the encore was intense. It was loud, beautiful, emotional, end-of-the-world music. In such a small setting you really "feel" the music, not in a cheesy-write a poem-kinda way, but literally in a physical way. Why am I trying to explain this? As Martin Mull famously said, "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture". I would highly recommend spending at least $1.29 and buying Kolniður, if not the entire Jonsí-Sigur Rós catalog. I've been a fan for over 10+ years, people, so I can back up what I am promising.
