Sigur Ros - Glosoli

I have been wanting to share this with you guys for some time now, but have never gotten around to it. I won't describe too much and let you form your own opinion.

Please allow yourself 7 uninterrupted minutes and wear good headphones if possible. (If none are available, then crank it up!) When "the Triibe" played in Spain last year, we used this as our opener.

I am continually inspired by this video.

The Sigur Ros official site

Here is a page you can go to and stream a very good quality version of this video (much better quality than the youtube link too). You can choose high quality Quicktime or Windows Media under the "streaming links" heading. Choose the highest and wait for it to load in - it's worth it. While you're there, you can read the Q&A with the cinematographer, it's very interesting.

Wow! I don't even know what to say... wow. I've been sitting here, just pondering for a lot more then the 7 uninterrupted minutes. Now I want to know what the words mean!

I've been lookng for the translation, but have not been able to find it as of yet.

I'll share if I find it.

Regardless, I still love what I get out if it. Now THAT'S good storytelling when such emotion is evoked without even knowing what the words mean.

Yes indeed! So, if you put yourself into that film, are you the drummer?

"Glosoli" lyrical translations can be found here:

And really, everyone owes it to themselves to pick up "Takk...", the album that features "Glosoli." It is a work of art.

For what it's worth, Mark, here are my webalicious digits:
