I like that song
Never actually heard that before. It's a great video, plenty going on. Quite artistic..
When I heard the name 'Hera' I was thinking of 'Zeus's' misses

Thanks for sharing that Simon, She sounds great. I'm not sure about the facial tats, though. In one way they are beautiful, but, in others, it tends
to detract from a beautiful face. It made me wonder if it's just my aversion to tats, showing. She can sing for me again.

A most enjoyable voice, I just wonder if she will still enjoy the decorations when she is 60 and has grand children.
TooCute4Words - 30-4-2008 at 21:39
She certainly has. I just gave it another listen and I have copied it off Youtube for myself. I shall see what else there is on her.
It's amazing what wonders lye out there in the world of music that we never expect to like, simply because we have never heard of them.
Here's an interesting one Click
It's amazing...song and video (creepy) and (Haunting)

Have you only just discovered Portishead TC? I don't know, you youngsters. They've just released their third album having released their first,
Dummy, in the early 90s.
TooCute4Words - 2-5-2008 at 23:01
Not at all SRD, I love Portishead and have both their albums and the live one two. I also have the live DVD. They're ace..
I do adore Roads
What a Great video

When she's in her rocking chair, on the lawn of the old folks home, she'll look at them and be able to say "I did it, I was out there"
Regards the Bear

Way to go, it's post count boost time. to mean that you had only just come
across Portishead, after all, due to the release of their third album, they are in the headlines at the moment.
Sorry TC, I was assuming from your previous comment:
I must admit my reason for posting the clip wasn't just the music, but also her appearance, hence the thread title.
She's Icelandic by birth and Kiwi by adoption and both societies have a culture of tattooing so I doubt she will regret her decision to follow those
TooCute4Words - 4-5-2008 at 13:40
It's okay, I can see why it sounded misleading. I do love Portishead and even have three t-shirts I wear often. with their logo - that big (P)
She does look quite nice and the video for (Humming) is simply
unbelievable.. I'm glad I posted it.
I think it looks good in B&W. There is still a demand for those two colours.
I see that Portishead and Bjork are both Icelandic. I like her too... Thats coincidental and she's crazy!!!
TooCute4Words - 4-5-2008 at 13:42
Nooooooo I'm sure it was just a mistake with 'bear'
He wouldn't post 3 times
Redwolf5150 - 4-5-2008 at 14:36
FINALLY something out of Iceland I can look at AND listen to.
TooCute4Words - 10-5-2008 at 00:04
Glad you liked Portishead. I think they are from Portishead, but Portishead ain't in Iceland.
I'll pop into Iceland tomorrow, need some Pork Sausages and Iceland do a great deal

They look as though they could be the temporary type, Bear, surely no woman in her right mind would have a permanent tattoo that size on her face? I
loathe tattoos - they are bad enough on men, but on women ? Yuk! Cheap and tarty.
SRD - 10-5-2008 at 07:08
So Nimuae, you don't accept other people's customs and traditions?
Nimuae - 10-5-2008 at 19:42
I didn't say that SRD. People are, and should be, free to follow any custom/tradition they please. I respect that - but that doesn't mean that I
like it, and not liking something is not a matter of disrespect, it is a matter of personal opinion. In my opinion tattoos, from whatever cullture,
are not at all attractive.
SRD - 11-5-2008 at 07:48
respectful of tradition.
LSemmens - 11-5-2008 at 11:20
In western society, it is often viewed as cheap and tarty, but, in her culture, it is seen as marks of distinction. Just because she looks like us
doesn't mean that she is one of us. Our prejudices can be challenged by someone like her. I've already said that it does not appeal to me, but, I
also said that it has challenged my own prejudices.
Nimuae - 12-5-2008 at 11:27
I am not being disrespectful SDR, I am expressing a personal opinion, and, in my personal opinion, tattoos on men look unattractive, on women they
look cheap and tarty.
In this girl's own culture/tradition this kind of thing may be acceptable, I don't know enough to say one way or the other.
To me, it diminishes rather than enhances the girl's own natural beauty, and, as someone else asked, what on earth will it look like when she is
TooCute4Words - 12-5-2008 at 21:02
I hate tattoos too, YUK !!
Nobody is injecting ink into my skin
TooCute4Words - 12-5-2008 at 21:06
That must be,
