“Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share.”—Mark Danielewski, House of Leaves (via moufles)
jónsi:"we write all our songs together but we've all been working on different projects on our own. for example kjartan just wrote some music for the student theatre. i'm always doing something on my own. i'm recording sounds from a washing machine right now."
jónsi:"should i tell you what i'm doing? i record the sound from the machine's cycle from start to finish. then i'm going to sing choir boy vocals over the spinning sounds, in the same tone."
interviewer:what will the album be called? "jónsi and home appliances"?
jónsi:"yeah i guess so. someone should invent a word for the sounds that all these home appliances make. i mean the music that they make."
