Bjork, who has been living in New York, says her new album, "Medulla"* is in part her response to the events of Sept. 11.
guests: Mike Patton (from Faith No More), Robert Wyatt (the British art-rock songwriter) and Tanya Tagaq (an Inuit throat-singer) add mews, moans, counterpoint and guttural grunts.
*"Medulla" (Latin for marrow)

click here to read Bjork's very interesting full article on NYT of today (credited for the pictures posted here)

this woman has some serious style

Well, she was great singing "Oceania" in the opening ceremony! For those who ask why didn't a greek singer was in her place, cant be really sure! As a matter of fact the whole greek history flashed before our eyes, and for us greeks was GREAT! Think it was for all countries! As international press said it was the best opening ceremony ever!!
Today (29/08/2004) is the closing ceremony at 21:00 local hour! As TV and the press says , its going to be much better! A greek traditional marriage is going to take place, but the bride will be kidnnaped by a chinese guy(next Olympic Games in China)! There will be much more, and of course a lot of singing from greek big stars, such as Xaris Alexiou, Marinella, Anna Vissi, Sakis Rouvas(Eurovision Song Contest 2004) etc, etc............................................... ...........................!!!

I suggest that you all should watch it..... (i'll be there in the stadium)

All the eyes to Athens well..................

i wont be joining you in the stadium envy... but i will give it a quicky on my screen

i actually hate the music of all those people..
unlikely everyone i know i got annoyed by the 'ethnic' identity of the opening ceremony, it was a bit too much for my global identity (admiting i just had a quick look while on the island, i dodnt see the whole boring thing... )

Dear Lena. You are the only one i know that you are not thrilled with the opening ceremony! No matter what we say we have our greek identity successfully loaded in our hearts! All world admires our culture, and they did admired the "show" with all those years of history before their eyes!

As for the closing ceremony, i was also there and i am proud to say that we did a great job!!! The singers paricipating didnt sang only their own songs, but songs that picture the greek "heart", "color", "laubor" etc etc...! It was great!

As for the "global" identity you mentioned, as you have may seen, while our "history" flashed before our eyes, above it was the God Eros (Love), wanting to imply, that all these happened with love and with the God Eros s help!!!! I am sure you agree, that LOVE is a global identity of all peaple!

Well Done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
