On the intricacies of folk art and plunges

"He says he has moved to the Faroe Islands retiring from making new music. Instead he works as a nurse in an old people’s home, while continuing to tour actively. “A genuine eccentric” are the words most often heard describing his live appearances, where he plays vinyl records and Faroe folk instruments and puts on display various small, inexplicable objects built by himself, such as mechanical birds and miniature models of planets."

Pondering on the nature of flow and oblique art education, Sam Renseiw attended a recent unannounced Goodiepal lecture.

Interested to know what Goodiepal's lecture was about. I presume it was in Danish? He seems like an interesting character.

I was wondering also if the bridge jump was recent? Although it's May, I suspect that water was incredibly cold! I went to watch a swim last early January in London in an open air pool. Hundreds turned out to swim, and hundreds turned blue!

And beautifully put together, Sam. Your prodigious output fills the world with poetry and art.

thanks robert.

the goodiepal lecture was a fantastic rambling monologue, mostly about himself and his work(s). very inspiring. (about an hour long, in danish) and, yes his music is highly complex as he experiments vastly, combining anything into surprising soundtracks.

re. the diver: it was just after the lecture. it seemed that it was sort of a bet between two young men walking on the bridge. it all happened very fast ( it is both illegal and probably dangerous, but the guy was a fine diver) and i guess that it must have been quite cold. luckily i still had some MB on the memory card to record the event.

aaah, the wonderful Goodiepal, I'm convinced his false beard is longer than when I saw him 2 years ago, I suppose it would be really.

reality always beats fiction: goodiepal's beard is indeed, fully organic.
the amazing thing about it is that it looks fake.

It is a truly amazing thing then as I have seen him both bearded and shaved on the same evening!
