Everyone who has an interest in the strange,the unknown, outer space, time travel, weird chicks, or high-concept art should like Bjork. If you don’t like any of those things, just pretend to and people will think you are cooler than you really are. If you aren’t sure if you like any of those things and want to at least attempt to be cool through merit, give Bjork a try. Her new album is called Biophilia, which means love of life or living systems. That’s sooooooooo deep. I like, totally love living systems man. They are so…alive and stuff. Also interesting to note, this album will be released as a series of apps for the iPad. For instance, the song “Virus” you watch as cells are being destroyed by a virus. You can try and help save the cells by touching the screen or something, and you can defend against the virus. The problem with that is the song will stop when the virus has been defensed, and will only begin playing again as the player relinquishes his defense of the cells. Whole Lee Shit that is deep. Now all I need is $500 and an iPad.
You know what else I love. The work of Michel Gondry. He kind of has a thing where he and Bjork make amazing videos together (Those of you who grew up in the 90’s will remember the video for “Human Behavior”. It was the one where Bjork is prancing around in the woods with a creepy hipster hunter chasing pedobear around the woods, and Bjork falls out of a tree and almost gets hit by pedobear who can drive a car. Yeah, that one). The first video from the forthcoming Biophilia is “Crystalline”. Michel Gondry has once again created something strangely familiar, yet strangely unique. I think the imaginary readership might like this. I hope that someone sends me an iPad for free so that I can get the Biophilia app and be cool. In the mean time, I think I will watch “Crystalline” again.
And just because I’m nice and so that none of you have to go searching for “Human Behavior” here it is.
