Thanks for sharing. Iceland is one of the countries I have been fascinated with since I was young.
I've been driving all around central California lately where there's nothing much but farmland as far as the eye can see. These have kept me going:
I'm partial to the version of "Always There" (when the "doo-doo-doo-doo..." comes in at :34 after the build-up...), but I'm a fan of the entire record too. They were also involved with Brother To Brother's "In The Bottle", which not only had the GSH title song but "Hey, What's That You Say" ("It's A New Day") and "Tresspassing", which were done by Skull Snaps the year before.
I just saw "Betty Blue" yesterday. That was a hell of a film. Reminds me of when I tried to help out a girlfriend find a job before she in a moment of anger trashed my aunt's dress shop. That was the end of the relationship. Anyhow, I was reading Beatrice Dalle's Wikipedia bio. Man, that woman knows how to party.
"Race With The Devil" was awesome. The thin plot involving Satanic cult members is just an excuse for cool chases and stunts.
"Pieces": I remember that one. The scene where the poor woman was sawn in the ribs (pig's corpse) was brutal. The ending freeze frame was funny though. The director, who worked with Sergio Leone but evidently did not get much from the experience, is best known for his "Superman" and "E.T." rip-offs which were made fun of by the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew.
I'm watching "World On A Wire" now.
