speaking of outer space...

I went to Iceland.

We spent one afternoon at 12 Tónar. Their hospitality and expresso making skills compelled me to spend an exorbitant $60 on only two CDs. I purchased self-titled albums by Apparat Organ Quartet, who are currently providing my soundtrack tune (The Anguish of Space Time) and are pictured on the wall above my head, and Benni Hemm Hemm, who are playing in New York soon with Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. Go see them!

Yesterday was the summer solstice. In New York the sun rose at 5:24 am and set at 8:30 pm. In Reykjavík the sun rose at 2:55 am and set at 12:04 am equaling over 21 hours of daylight. Crazy!
