Time for a reminder.

 

http://www.sarahbettens.com is up and running. It looks new, it looks fresh, it looks ready. So does she.

February is the planned date for the release of her album.

 

http://www.gertbettens.com has one page. It's vague. You can almost hear the kind of music through one Internet splash page.

 

http://www.kschoice.com was last updated a month or two ago.

Wait, wait, wait...

 

White light to me? Like, a whiter light? Is my light black or something, am I functioning with a black light here? Are all my white shirts flourescing? Are my blackheads glowing orange? Does this album mean that cat piss won't glow anymore? What is Gert trying to do to me with this white light?

No no no, you got it all wrong.

In this album, Gert is trying to reach out to people on his own.

Therefore, his codename is White Light, and he is contacting you.

 

Why White Light? Perhaps it is his Indian name. Perhaps it is because the two words rhyme, and Gert always had a way with lyrics and music. Perhaps he sees himself or his music as a white beacon of hope in today's world, or perhaps Väyte Läiit in Belgican means "SuperCool Dude".

Maybe he should sing in Belgican more often then, and we wouldn't be subjected to lyrics like "a toothbrush I use for the Eiffel Tower." Or, rather, we wouldn't understand them.

 

See, I'm glad Sigur Ros decided to just sing gibberish. I'd read the translations to their Icelandic lyrics and think "man, the Icelanders must not like this nearly as much if they understand this crap."

Not that English-to-Icelandic works out that well anyway. I mean, do Bjork's lyrics make sense? Only occasionally. And are they well articulated? Hardly. Do they use metaphors about throwing cutlery out of windows as a way to start the day? Oh hell yes.

 

But are they cute?

 

Just can't be down on Bjork when you ask that one.

Few things are forever and it Gerts when good things fade!

 

He finished his first album!

 

What does that mean? Will there be a second album soon? Who is this Brigade of the Moon? Do they have anything to do with Moon Roach? Where did the White Light go? It was to me!

 

 

Also:

I want Sarah's CD!

You can watch the video for Not Insane on her site, and it seems nice and unintrusive.
