In Rainbows

On October 1st, '07, Radiohead (aka the Greatest Band in the World) announced in a surprising move the forthcoming e-availability of their LP7 for October 10th, '07; i.e. for TODAY!!!

So, we're just some hours away from discovering what this new sound is, some hours away from this special moment when suddenly—as maybe only Björk can do—all the other bands just fade into oblivion. Therefore you're right: to say that I'm excited would be a massive understatement…

I've succeeded in avoiding any material from this new album till today, and I have high hopes my *huge* efforts will pretty soon find some reward. Will In Rainbows be another Kid A? It's a risky game I'm playing right now since I've got more chance to be disappointed, but I really feel the timing is right for them to once again change the rules.

I'm now gonna try to find some sleep to calm down and ease the waiting ;) ! Pfew, it's hard…

(And of course, exactly 2 minutes after the announcement, my £40 discbox was ordered! So the waiting won't stop in a few hours, but only on or around December 3rd, '07!!!)

My Icelandic Month

It's over now :( ! But… it was plain great :) !

If you were not aware of that, I was on vacation in Iceland, from August 11th to August 20th. It was the 2nd time for me… and most definitely not the last one (I hope…) On August 21st, I then attended Björk's 1st concert in Nîmes (France) to end it all yesterday evening with her 2nd gig (in Nîmes as well… but you must be aware of that last part if you read my blog ;) !)

Of course, everything was A-perfect :) ! And I'll certainly post some goods on my Flickr account soon. So stay tuned!

Today is the day: Volta is out

Björk's 6th album should now be available from your preferred reseller. So unless you're waiting for the limited edition (like me…), just go out and buy it ;) !

To celebrate, I'm currently listening to her May 5 concert in NYC, broadcasted from (Advice: Don't miss the impressive, new reorchestration of Army of Me, magically followed by her next hit, Innocence; they just flow naturally!)

WOW, WOw, Wow, wow…

It's April 9, '07 now, since a dozen of minutes, and Earth Intruders, the new single from Björk, is available on the iTunes Store! I obviously couldn't resist anymore and listened to the 30 second preview there… And, I agree: she's back for real to break it all!!! Yoohoo :) !

I'm gonna see her… again

After an endless month of waiting, doubts, and even black scenarii ("Could it have been cancelled?" Or: "Will I be aware of when the sell is finally going to start?" And then: "Would I end in having a chance to grab one?", etc.), I finally put my hands on the Next Big Thing to me: a ticket to Björk's next concert in France! Yeepee!!!

As of today, I've been lucky enough to (very quickly) see her climb Cannes Film Festival's stairs to present Lars von Trier's brilliant Dancer in the Dark feature film in 2000; and then, to hear her live in the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées for her Vespertine tour in 2001. Now the date is saved for her come back in the Arena of Nîmes: I'll be there on August 23, '07 to sing along with her on Volta tunes and all :) !

Once again, I can't wait…

Update: I'm gonna see her again… and again! Twice. In a row. (Almost.) 'Cause I'm weak and just bought a last-minute ticket for her additional date in the Arena of Nîmes scheduled on August 21, '07. Yeepee!!! (bis)

Topics of my Unpublished Posts

In the previous month, I would have posted about the following news.
I may post additional comments on some of those topics later… or not.

. David Lynch's new film, INLAND EMPIRE, is not ready for Cannes Film Festival. So disappointed :( !
. They're back! Yep, Radiohead are back!!! (And Arpeggi is da bomb!) I'll finish this item with a fresh comment from "… and this is reason number 28 why Radiohead are miles above their peers."
. [Details] Thom Yorke's got a big surprise for us all: it's called The Eraser, it's coming as soon as July 10th, and I'm more than excited :) !
. Apple has just unveiled its brand new MacBook. As always, a stunning computer: very affordable, fully loaded with software and "gadgets", sporting a new+sleak design, etc. The perfect laptop for Mac users and… for former PC aficionados too ;) !
. Oh, and Apple also slightly revised its MacBook Pro: more power, more choice, same price!
. Also, Björk announced her new Surrounded box set: all her albums with 5.1 digital sound, videos, bonus, everything.
. At last, Flickr's interface has just been drastically revised, for the better. Sweet!

Voilà… I may have forgotten some items: they'll be added later, or covered in a future post.
