They were dong the dance from the end of Dirty Dancing and that was surreal enough BUT THEN Kevin takes out a bow and arrow and shoots my older sister in the rib and I was lke oh my god what the fuck is wrong with you. And I was like quick Aoife we have to go to the hospital and she was like wanna go into penneys first so then she went into penneys but she couldn’t try anything on because the arrow was in the way so I finally brought her to the doctor and he was like sorry I can’t take it out she might lose one of her baskets and it was so dramatic I was like NO NOT HER BASKETS.
It was so traumatising I woke up in the middle of the night because of it.
To be honest i was really disappointed at how biased RTE news was when reporting on the death of Osama Bin Laden. They gave one of their little ‘profiles’ on him and managed to completely left out how he was funded, trained and encouraged by the United States and the CIA in the 80s, and how America is mostly responsible for the hatred they get from people like Bin Laden. I’m not saying i condone anything he did, he was a horrible man responsible for the deaths of so many people and not just Americans in America, even some of his own supporters felt his wrath. But what i am saying is i understand why he hated the US like he did and why he wanted to inflict pain. Here was a man working to better his own country for what he saw was a just cause to overthrow an oppressive regime, the USA the most powerful nation on Earth offers him weapons and training and support only to withdraw that support when it became politically inconvenient to them he realised that the Americans had no interest, and the didn’t, in his cause, in his people, in him, they didn’t care they just wanted someone they could use, someone in power that they could use as a pawn in the middle east, and not just for the free flow of oil they would gain, but also to get a footing in the region so they could eventually have good relations with all those lovely oil producing nations. No one likes being used, being tricked and he was no different, and the stakes were so high for him, so many of his countrymen were killed because of an American agenda. So he felt he had to get them back.
Americans should not be out on the street celebrating the death of anyone, but especially not Bin Laden, he should be an embarrassment to them, the thousands that have suffered and died in the Middle East and Asia, the damage to the US image and and ironic increase in support for extremist groups and anti American sentiments in a new generation of people, all in the hunt for this monster that America created, that America is largely to blame for, truly the way the US has behaved in response to Bin laden is an embarrassment for them, and a victory for people like him.
More people need to know about the CIA´s dealings with people like him.
Then more people joined them, some left, and new ones came to take their place. That is as it should be.
All of the people in Múm like to make music, and try their best to make people happy, and surprise themselves and their friends. They think it is a very good idea to sing along to songs you don’t know. (More humans should try this.)
They have many good friends in other Icelandic bands that are not Sigurrós, and they sometimes like to make músík with them, too. (This can be confusing to humans who think that a person can only be in one band which is not Sigur Rós at a time.)
