Trip to the volcano

No comments
When we arrived half of Iceland had already parked their car and started walking up to the volcano.



The Norwegian army had decided to use the distraction to invade Iceland. Icelanders general reaction was a relieved: "finally!"


One person slipped on the ice and had to be rescued by the rescue squad. The Icelandic rescue squad has been working around the clock, marking the way, manning the area, making sure nobody kills themselves. They are all volunteers and financed by donations.


Totally does not look like we are all on a religious pilgrimage to sacrifice to the volcano....


It had only been a week, but the valley had already filled up with lava:



Of course I brought some home:

My REM the Warner Bros era without Bill Berry playlist

No comments
I did not include all singles again and went with the songs I liked most or thought represented the album the most.


    Up
  1. Hope (I like it because of it's monotone and weird electronics. It also represents Up well)
  2. At My Most Beautiful (One of the bands favourite songs, especially Stipe. Probably the only real love song he ever wrote)
  3. Why Not Smile (all hail the harpsichord)
  4. Diminished ("I watched you fall, I think I pushed")
  5. Reveal
  6. I've Been High (One of my favourite REM songs, sunny and relaxing)
  7. She Just Wants To Be (Live this is especially good)
  8. Beat a Drum(This or I'll Take The Rain is the best song on the album)
  9. I'll Take The Rain (see above)
  10. Around the Sun
    nope
    Accelerate
  11. Man-Sized Wreath (To me THE Accelerate song)
  12. Until The Day is Done (This is here because it reminds me of Automatic for the People)
  13. I'm Gonna DJ (the only song that is a bit different, I hope I have this much energy when I'm in my 50s)
  14. Collapse Into Now
  15. Uberlin (I'm so glad they embraced some of the musical ideas from Reveal again)
  16. Oh My Heart (the accordion )
  17. It Happened Today (Mike Mills, Eddie Vedder and Joel Gibb going all out in the background vocals)
  18. Alligator_Aviator_Autopilot_Antimatter (with Peaches, Lenny Kaye and Patty Smith reminding us that REM started out as post-punk)
  19. Blue (the continuation of E-Bow the Letter)

Cool German Words - Besserwisser

No comments
Besserwisser (know - better) is one of those words the English language has adopted. If there was ever a need to have a word for people who think they know everything better, even than the experts and are not shy of loudly telling everyone, it is now. Iceland just shut down again. I do not have the energy to be a Besserwisser about it anymore, so I just go and edit my volcano pictures.
