What is the instrument he wipes his butt with at 16:45?

It's a ribbon controller, for controlling a synthesiser. I think his was a model made by Moog. Moog don't make them these days, but plenty of other companies do.

Björk has released another album (called Biophilia) this time with a very educational aspect to it which is ten ipad apps to accompany each of the ten songs on the album. I'm looking into getting an Ipad soon (for my photography work, client meetings etcetera) and plan to use some of Björk's apps for music teaching. I highly recommend reading this article and getting a feel for what Björk is trying to teach kids around the world.

Beautiful Diptych from a series by photographer Jason Travis where he creates portraits of people with accompanying images of what's in their bag. Thanks for the link +Louisa Noble

I'm playing a very cool gig this Friday (tomorrow) 8-11pm at the Central Wine Club in Hong Kong with DJ Gie on elecronics and Oscar Azahar on saxophone. Google + doesn't like to embed facebook events so here's the long link:

This vertical farm, named Alpha Farm, premiered at the Manchester International Festival early this summer and is one of very few that have been created in the world. This farm is a major revolution for an everyday activity - eating. Since I quite like to eat, I'm quite interested in this project. Give it some love by sharing the video and take a minute to comprehend what vertical farms can do for cities, especially a super dense place like Hong Kong.

In the same vein, this is Björk's wisdom about energy in Iceland in a recent interview <http://www.thestoolpigeon.co.uk/features/interview-bjork-biophilia.html>

"Green solutions are easier — if you’re using tidal energy, it’s cheaper, and you’re going to be better off in the long run. What I want to do is not go, ‘Okay, let’s have it how it used to be — all nostalgic and nationalistic.’ I want to use this energy… I want to use it to go high-tech, and so do a lot of people, not just me. I don’t want to do what England or what Europe had to do — 200 years of building factories. We don’t have to do that. We can go straight into high-tech, solar power, wind farms… and then we can come into the 21st century."
