I'm excited about what i just found out in Another Magazine...Bjork's new album Biophilia (translating as “love of life” or “love of nature”) is partly inspired by David Attenborough!
Björk:“David Attenborough did this amazing show called The Song of the Earth, where he's exploring where animals and humans meet, and trying to work out how music-making started. So, he finds animals that make music, and then he meets these tribes performing ceremonies, and you try to imagine how that would have been the beginning of music…"
He is one of my heros too. This is going to be epic!
'...Our items are mostly produced in small editions and sometimes unique, depending on the material we find. So if we come across, let's say, a beautiful piece of vintage leather we buy it, even if it's only enough for one little bag. Everything is handmade with love...'
I love the random selection of items and philosophy behind the shop!
What sort of diary should I like mine to be? Something loose-knit and yet not slovenly, so elastic that it will embrace anything, solemn, slight or beautiful, that comes into my mind. I should like it to resemble some deep old desk or capacious hold-all, in which one flings a mass of odds and ends without looking them through. I should like to come back, after a year or two, and find that the collection had sorted itself and refined itself and coalesced, as such deposits so mysteriously do, into a mould, transparent enough to reflect the light of our life, and yet steady, tranquil compounds with the aloofness of a work of art. The main requisite, I think, on reading my old volumes, is not to play the part of a censor, but to write as the mood comes or of anything whatever; since I was curious to find how I went for things put in haphazard, and found the significance to lie where I never saw it at the time.
