Volcano non-news update

  • Me (getting excited): woah really??
  • Jamillah (tracing the source): Ugh, it's CNN though they're so hyperbolic.

WOW WOW WOW VOLCANO RED ALERT!!!

WOW WOW WOW VOLCANO RED ALERT!!!

A few of my favorite people being cute

I’ve been getting more and more notes from friends about HEY AREN’T YOU FREAKIN OUT A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS UNPRONOUNCEABLE VOLCANO SITUATION IN ICELAND?!
So I figured I would just post the sappy reply i wrote to my friend Elliott here

If there is a crazy eruption that halts air traffic I hope it happens while I am here. Iceland is the best! 
Honestly, I’ve had the most wonderful few days already with so many beautiful sights and great creativity and all my wonderful pals here and and I just had coffee for 3 hours with my favorite author right now (the LOVESTAR guy) and the whole place itself is so cute and magical I wouldn’t even mind getting trapped here Pompeii style haha. Feel free to read this at my funeral if that happens. For the record though, something of that magnitude is highly unlikely.


I did hear that for about 10 days before the Eyjafjallajökull shut down the European airspace there was a really cool “tourist eruption” with lots of flowing magma and explosions and lightning, with a long line of jeeps taking people up to check it out. That would be cool to see. 


PLUS, Justin Timberlake just arrived for his first ever concert in Iceland, so this is pretty much the best time ever to get stuck in Reykjavik for awhile.

If you want to check out more stuff about the earthquake swarm, these are my favorite links:

In other news: You can watch JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE LIVE FROM ICELAND on a livestream tomorrow night. Thanks Yahoo!

Toppstöðin is an old coal fired power station in Reykjavik that has been a creative co-working space since 2008. Needless to say, it was exceedingly cool to see. Thanks to Andri Snær Magnason for hanging out and showing me around!
