the only earth?

iceland sounds like sigur ros, or vice versa

Saw Heima last night. Iceland seems to have no shortage of above average looking children, people in sweaters, symbolic red kites, and gorgeous vistas. There also seemed to be a trio of sheep that followed the band around the country in their tour of the island. The interview with the band parts were cute and the performances, in a wide variety of settings, were really cool both from a scenic and getting to see all of the little details of what's happening onstage aspect.

After a little happy hour at Smith tonight, I went home to get ready for the voyage to Michigan tomorrow. Packing, laundering, and other assorted pre-flight rituals. I wonder if it is snowy there.
