sorry i dont know how to make those marks over the "o" in her name on the keyboard.

anyway i just bought her new cd, greatest hits a few days ago! i like it a lot. i also want "family tree" but dont want to pay $55 to get it. have to talk someone into buying it for me.

im not really impressed with the new song "its in our hands." its ok i guess. i liked "its not up to you" better.

glad to have all the old favs like joga & army of me on 1 cd!!:wavey:

Anton, you have been reading too many of Car Key Boi's threads:
"In this thread, we talk about..."

...and in response to your question, I don't think you can put the marks over the o on a normal keyboard

the video for [it's in our hands] seems like she's a nocturnal Thumblelina wandering about in the forest.... :)

Bjork is great, My fave videos are It's Oh so Quite and Bachelorette. I don't really like the video for Venus as a boy, it's one of my fave songs but the video is not how I see it.

so does björk herself! apparently she thought it wasn't a good idea to fry the eggs at the end, bu the director, sophie muller (or whatever she's called), wanted it that way. :)

i bought family tree, there was a special offer here, and it is really great, some songs i've never heard, old stuff, electronic stuff, string-versions of songs etc. and the artwork is great - as always.
there is actually already a dvd with all her videos (up to the songs from homogenic), it was released a year ago or so. and it's incredible!

Here's how to do it, if you are really desperate to write her name correctly.

1. Make sure you Num Lock key is active (look for the green light).

2. Hold down ALT (the left one).

3. Type 0246 (or 0214 for a large letter)

4. Release ALT.

Voila: ö

all is full of love, hunter, pagan poetry are great, daring and imaginative videos. if you go to www.bjork.com you'll find you can dowload most of her videos and songs for free, and they're good quality. her website is great. it shows she really cares a lot about her fans. in fact, she often releases music on her website for fans to hear and comment on, before deciding herself whether she'll do anything with it. a great artist, that always takes a creative step forward with each new release.

i quite like the daydreamer housewife idea of that video, fantasizing about her imaginary, ideal lover whilst she fries an egg.

yea that was cool!!!

also bjork.com is a mixture of a professional team and 1 great site by some of her fans. they merged a few years ago!!

the fan site was called the ultimate imtimate.

if you like bjork, be sure to sign in here!! :wavey:

In the Venus As A Boy video, Bjork didn't want the eggs fried because it was oily and messy. Anything but fried she says.

Her decision was affected by her favorite book: "The Story Of The Eye" (I have a copy of that on my computer)

She let the director read it and in the end, she also agreed that the egg shouldn't have been fried but that was already after the video.

My favorite video would be It's Oh So Quiet but Bjork doesen't like the song anymore.......She says she regrets doing the song since it wasn't her own.

Impossible to choose a favorite Bjork song.
(I taught my keyboard Icelandic. Just go to your keyboard settings.)

yay, more Bjork fans. :)
