björk: black lake

shot on location in iceland by award-winning director andrew thomas huang, the ten minute long film for ‘black lake’ was commissioned by the museum of modern art, new york and debuted there earlier this year.

the film includes motifs from the icelandic landscape—caves, ravines, lava, and moss fields—and reflects ideas of pain, perishing, and rebirth. ‘black lake’ was realized in collaboration with the 3-d design firm autodesk, who worked along with david benjamin and the living on the installation at moma. ‘black lake’ was produced by andrew thomas huang’s uk based music video production company colonel blimp.

B.B. King’s first guitar

B.B. King died Friday at the age of 89. My mom, who passed away years ago, once told me when we went to one of his New York concerts that he was already old when she was a teen.

When you think of the blues, he’s one of the first people who come to mind. I saw him perform live more time than I saw any other performer.

So, how did he get started?

And I can’t post on B.B. King without this.

So long, Lucille.
