1997 - Björk's Homogenic has just been set free. A young girl, hypnotized by the world, drags the plastic CD case over the sharp edge of her desk, ripping the binding sticker off the side (a move she had seen revered record store employees execute many times before). Clicking the disc into a somewhat reliable and very well used disc man, and stretching her large creaky headphones 🎧 around her Princess Lea inspired hairstyle - she's almost...ready...for...musical...adventure...
Allowing the CD to spin a second, she waits for the player to catch before she can relax and promise herself sound. Only then, intoxicated by the warlike tango of "Homogenic"'s opening track, she becomes the Hunter. Ready to experience her familiar world through the fierce nymphish voice of the one and only, Björk. The most famous quirkball of all time. Beloved to all 🦄.
Ok, I'm the girl in the Princess Lea 'do.
Looking back, it seems like so long ago. Then, I realize - it was. 20 years to be exact.
