somebody: Matthew Barney joke, plz.

This was actually an "easter egg" buried in hour 723 of the Cremaster Cycle?

I got nothing.

Is Bjork wearing a coral reef?

Wow. Well, my heart is breaking in all the right ways now. Everyone knows you can go to zamzar.com and turn the YouTube into an mp3, right?

I am trying to get the Robyn love, I really am…it's just not happening for me.

In my deams she would have made a cover version that I could play when I DJ (indie bar in Paris). But the first three minutes are still unacceptable in that setting.

If Robyn can't pull it off, nobody can. Björk is uncoverable, especially that song. (DCfC did an OK job on "All is full of love" though).

I think the problem here is that she's basically trying to sound like Bjork, particularly with the vocals, and what's the point of that? Bjork already did it better. I'd like to see people try to do an almost unrecognizable and interesting cover of Bjork than someting faithful.

There is no other Bjork besides Bjork.

I now have a new anxiety dream scenario: covering Bjork in front of an implacable Bjork.

So this is how it would sound if you took all the superhuman vocal range and heart shuddering emotion out of that song, huh? No thanks.
