Music Is My Other Love

Here's another factoid about me. The only thing I love more than books is music. After high school I worked at a couple of different music stores and I was a band geek and a church choir singer when I was younger. I also had the mandatory piano lessons and I wish I had a piano again.

Anyway, tonight I skipped reading and watched Screaming Masterpiece, a documentary about modern Icelandic music. I am a big fan of a few Icelandic bands -- Sigur Ros, Mum, Bjork, Amiina -- and I might be looking up a few others. There is some footage of Iceland in winter which is unbelievably beautiful. Recently I watched a movie about the band Sigur Ros and their footage was Iceland in spring and summer which is amazingly green and textured. My brother and sister-in-law and I have a goal to get to Iceland sometime soon, preferably when we can hear some amazing Icelandic music.

Singing in tongues,

Buy Screaming Masterpiece on Amazon or rent it on Netflix like I did.
