hmm i've been wondering how thurston moore's solo album would be. I suppose if it made amanda's number 1 it could be delightful, i may get it one day.. however i will not get bjork's volta. As aweosme as i think she is for being so different, original ect. and just being a freak in general, i don't really enjoy her music
i feel quite the opposite about bjork...i think i'd like her music a lot more if she wasn't "so different", and if she didn't put such a goddamned emphasis on "look how wonky i am"........straight up, it all went downhill after she brutally fucked over a friend of mine about 10 years ago/i read how she "makes music for herself and not for fans" -- if you make music only for yourself then don't release it, don't make music videos, don't fucking tour (and in turn not show up to the concert because you're busy being drunk/high on trl).
if anyone cares to hear said story, i'll elaborate.
thanks for making me raise my post count, ya jerk.
not too many bands play vermont, so my fried and i we were both used to traveling to see our favorite bands.......in 1997(ish), said friend -- hardcore
bjork fan -- went to see her in concert a few hours south of where we live. she actually asked me if i wanted the spare ticket prior to the show, but being i was just getting into her solo stuff i declined and her brother went.
she called me around 3 or 4 to say the venue had just thrown up a sign stating the concert was cancelled and would possibly be rescheduled at a later date, no refunds. since her father had dropped her and her brother off, expecting they'd be out of a show around 11pm, has somewhere in boston and was not reachable (remember, this was when cell phones weren't common). she went to see "good will hunting" and tried to stay inside somewhere warm for the other six hours (it was february). shit happens, people get sick -- i understand that.......hell, i've had to reschedule my
plans a few times in my life because a band is sick/reschedules -- i don't blame them, they're human
however, in bjork's case...
here i am at home, watching tv, thinking "damn, that really sucks for kathryn, she's stuck down there" blah blah blah...then who comes on mtv's total request live? FUCKING BJORK. DRUNK! i've seen her interviewed before, sure she's "weird".........but in this case, she was clearly DRUNK. fuck that.
from what i can assume, she had an offer to show up on mtv and took it and figured "cancel my show to appear on trl? suuuuure."
you know what, i don't know for real what the fuck happened -- i'm just calling it as i saw it, and from the evidence i had, it looked as though diva singer got a last minute offer to appear on tv, cancelled her show at the 11th hour, and jumped on a plane to ny.
that show did end up getting rescheduled btw -- no refunds, just "you go to the rescheduled night with your old stub or fuck yourself"...real considerate of all of the people who couldn't reschedule their lives and show up to a show after pulling a stunt like that the first time. and go figure she says she doesn't really care about/need fans (since she "writes music for herself")........i really wanna put faith, trust, time, and money into an artist who feels like that about me, as a fan.
