Jonsi in St. Louis

Jared with Jonsi and Alex.

Zack, Leigh, Ulfur (aka Klive), Alex, and a member of Mountain Man.

I'm not quite sure I fully comprehend what happened last night. My housemate Jared, who pretty much lived with Jonsi and Sigur Ros in Iceland while studying there for a semester, invited Leigh and I to meet Jonsi at his concert in St. Louis. We went there, met Jonsi before the show, hung out with him and the band, enjoyed the show, wow what a show!, and then afterwards drank, danced, and partied with them. Just us. We didn't get home until 7:30 AM. Not to brag, but Jonsi flipped out over my magic tricks and even kissed me goodnight. What!? I was so impressed with him and his partner Alex (also in the band). They are both vegan raw-foodists, beautiful, nutty, totally human, no super ego or anything..it was amazing. We also got to meet their opening act: a three women folk vocal group Mountain Man. Turns out one of them loves Ken Wilber, zen, and Gempo Roshi's Big Mind Process...we had a lot to talk about.

I see you in the trees
I see you're spiritful
You're in the breeze"

it's awesome you got to meet Jonsi! i remember meeting that roommate of yours. cool guy. he made a good move in picking Iceland as a place to study. It's fricking cool. It's like being on the moon when you're there.
I'm in Dharamsala. Thinking of you.
Peace.
