Every now and then I'll write something in pure stream of consciousness style where I'll run from one thing to the other, having a pseudo-intellectual conversation with myself on the go and it'll often be quite long. I'll try to leave a TL;DR version at the bottom of most of these but hopefully you'll have fun reading and comment with your own thoughts below the impenetrable wall of text:
Hi, I wanted to use the first post on this new blog of mine to introduce myself to those who either don't know me or know fairly little about me and also to tell you all a bit about the purpose of this blog.
My name is Jón Þór Sigurleifsson, I'm an Icelandic artist, nerd and hater of categorizing oneself. As long as I can remember music, video games and movies have fascinated me and since I picked up a guitar shortly before my 15th birthday I have been involved in quite a lot of creative projects. The funny thing is though that although music was my first creative love it's the one who has been mostly neglected when it comes to actually releasing something. I've written plays, acted in them and even directed a few, I wrote and released a collection of poems and short stories, I helped with the making of an Icelandic film, I've modeled and yet the only music I have out there is an acoustic demo on Bandcamp. But hopefully that will change soon as my progressive metal band Daedra is planning to record and release our debut album this year.
This blog is meant to be a different kind of creative outlet for me and a chance for the readers to possibly find something new to enjoy in the realm of arts, whether it's music, movies, video games or something completely different.
Let the blogging commence!
