I have the bow formerly belonging to Jón Þór Birgisson
I HAVE HIS BOW
sell on Ebay in exactly 10 years after Sigur Ros disband.
"WHERE'S MY SHITTING BOW!?"
saying "Athene nabbed it, sorry."
going "how do you pronounce Athene?"
but apparently it is ath-a-knee.
athene, how do you pronounce your name?
and do you agree that when they speak english, they sound Welsh?
they have lovely lovely voices, but i would not say welsh
But not just a little bit Welsh? I don't mean this in a derogatory way. I like the Welsh.
and I know this for three reasons:
1. my missus is Swedish
2. some of the pronunciation of english words in a scottish accent is identical to some Swedish - e.g. 'Go' in English, pronounced by a Scotsman sounds like 'Goa'. In Swedish, the word for go is 'Gå'. Which is pronounced pretty much the same
3. I can't remember the third
Personally, I blame the Vikings
It landed on my bloody foot and i just stared at it like a retard until i realised what i was and it was too late by that point!
I nearly got a drum stick!
so you must have been in shock - it could have put someone's eye out
what's that got to do with comparing Sigur Ros with Keane?
on sale as recently as 3 weeks ago. maybe if you pulled your finger out you wouldn't have to complain about people that you've decided by some arbitrary method are less worthy of sigur ros live than you going to see the gigs and you not, init
i'll give you all i have at the moment (£4.30), yay or nay?
It sounds like a good anecdote... or a mildly amusing one, at least.
