Bjork Weekend - 1997 Documentary

Happy Birthday, Bjork - 50 today!!
I first heard of Bjork back in 1992 when she was with The Sugarcubes, specifically Birthday, Hit and Cold Sweat. I revisited her stuff in 1995 and her music spoke to me, somehow.  Specifically in 1997 when Homogenic came out, I produced a lot of art work and made a lot of things whilst P2 was in nursery.  In 2003, I saw her at the Hammersmith Apollo and as tiny as she was, she was incredible, live.

I haven't kept up with a lot of her stuff, but I do listen to some of her newer music now, finding fresh joy in what I hear.  This documentry from 1997 especially inspired me.

Happy Birthday, Bjork - and many more of 'em xxx

Bjork (Long) Weekend III - Hidden Place/Pagan Poetry/Heirloom

I bought this CD back in 2001 and at that time, I probably my most productive creative writing-wise.  I wrote reams and most of it from the heart.  Alas, I shredded and deleted the lot shortly before I went into hospital.  I am most pleased that I kept my paintings (bigger version of my doodles) from that time. I wrote Enameline whilst relistening to the album back in 2012.  There is just something so special about this album.
