Icelandic pop singer dreams

So Bjork is going to be in Riga two days after we leave which is too bad. It would have been great to see her there. I had a dream about her a number of months ago and then I dreamt about her two nights ago. It was a similar dream where I talked to her about music and art only this time my family was there - we were traveling - and I asked Lyla to take a picture of us. As Lyla was taking the picture I told Bjork about my previous dream about her and made sure her hair was not in her face. I woke up as Lyla was taking the picture.

We've had some intense weather over the last couple weeks. The bad part is that my after-work lap swimming has not been as consistent as I would like but the good part is that we've seen some beautiful black cloud activity, thick mist ion the trees and some rainbows.


Comical characters

This week I dreamt about Sacha Baron Cohen of "Borat" fame , Bjork and Jack White of the White Stripes. Jack White might have been my brother in the dream. In the Bjork dream I talked to her for about an hour and had a picture taken with but her hair was in her face so I had no proof. I don't remember whether Sacha was his "Borat" character or his "Talladega Nights" character. I expect the latter since we saw that movie last weekend (Thanks for the DVD, Tommy!)

Five or so years ago Joe and I were in a comic book store and saw a T-shirt with a quirky Goth-y little girl character on it and big letters that spelled "LENORE". We asked and were told it was a comic book. We were going to buy it for Lenore but since the store did not have a copy we were afraid it might represent something that we couldn't get behind. We eventually found a copy of Lenore and it turns out to be the adventures of a cute dead girl and her quirky dead friends. I was hooked. You may recall I like cute but creepy.

So I bought the 13th issue at a comic book store last weekend. Here's a sample. Lenore and her friend Ragamuffin are about to meet a friend of a friend - note the name tag.


After picking up issue 13 and Joe's issue of Adrian Tomine's Optic Nerve we browsed around a bit and found another quirky comic called "Me Write Book, It Bigfoot Memoir". After reading a couple of pages we decided it was another have-to-have. Here is a sample. Here Bigfoot complains that "certain element of woodland society want keep Bigfoot down. They run slander campaign". Note the megaphone.
