CONFESSION: today when I saw the name of the erupting volcano in Iceland, i thought it was just someone angrily pawing at the keyboard.
I bet this was a prank by Bjork to see how illiterate Americans are. "Let's make up a fake volcano even though we don't even have volcanoes, and then send them a bunch of letters and see if they'll buy it!" Or maybe it's part of Sigur Ros' fake language, Hopelandic. My friend Kyle did a bold test of trying to actually PRONOUNCE IT ALOUD and has reported back that he ended up just yelling loud noises.
