Happy Sigur Rós day!!!
has baptized itself as Sigur Róstube: all Sigur Rós, all day. The whole darn homepage is all Sigur Rós videos. So, you can take a break from watching Cat of 1000 Faces
, Chris Crocker looking more and more bonkers
, and that whole viral Yes We Can
thing, and get all contemplative and dramatic with everyone's favorite Icelandic band (tied with Björk/The Sugarcubes, obv), staring into space and pondering life's worth to fan-made videos for "með blóðnasir."
Take that, Barack! And you thought St. Patrick's Day was the next big holiday!
As an added bonus, if you missed the December Kendall screening of Heima
, which Sigur Rós describes thusly: "Filmed over two weeks during the summer of 2006 when the band
undertook a series of free, unannounced concerts in Iceland. They
hauled 40-plus people round 15 locations to the furthest flung corners
of their homeland for their debut venture into live film, to create
something, well, inspirational,"
you can catch all 97 minutes of it
on YT today as well. We'll get you in the mood with a few choice Sigur Ros clips:
