So the Salmond vs. Darling debate, round 2, has been watched and all that to say the world of politics continues to evade more questions than it answers. The cheesy charm of Salmond got a dizzying 70% of the viewer polls calling him out as the ‘winner.’ Really what I’d have offered was he’s more entertaining 70% of the time than the dithering Darling.

#tbt: Hoppípolla — Sigur Rós
Perhaps Sigur Rós’ most commercially successful song, “Hoppípolla” (Icelandic “hopping into puddles”), is an ethereal and happy-feelings song. It was released back in 2005 on their album Takk (Icelandic “thanks”). Its slow, melancholic but soothing sounds flow smoothly, caressing your ears and telling you it’ll all be okay. Like most of Sigur Rós’ songs, this one will pluck your heartstrings and have you mesmerized.
