To my information, she never did that. In the past there were Q&As over twitter and others, but no postings.

She's posted here in the past, but it's been quite some time. Other people might know more about when the last time she posted was.

She never posted too often, the one which I remember most is the post where she explained why Gollum's song sounds so much like her.

Hang on, a little googling got me this:

Lady Druadan writes: Bjork posted this on January 16th concerning the Gollum song played at the end of The Two Towers.

From the message board (4UM) at http://www.bjork.com:

"i was asked to write the song a month before thew birth of my daughter , when i turned it down because i was too pregnant they said fair enough and got another writer then approached me again said they had a song and lyric in my style , they understood i didn´t have time to write it but if i could sing it , i thought it was a little noughty but asked them to send me the notes and the lyrics since i was curious what is "my style" then had to tell them it was 3 days until my baby was due and i couldn´t focus on anything else they then said they were going to ask "björk-kinda singers" and told me they got 3 singers, they didn´t tell me the names but say A,B and C .

then after the birth they said they weren´t happy with the results and asked me please if i could save them , they could put the deadline back to october 30th (my baby was born on the 3rd) i told them my baby was priority and i was told they went back and chose one of the A or B or C . i then later found out it was emiliana. björk."


Usually, they would be shorter and she would end with "warmth, björk". She would almost never use capitals, but always accents (like ö).

And ofcourse, back in the MWC days, you would have Mr. E aka Einar from the Sugercubes coming in from time to time, which was sometines confusing but always great :love:

Edit: message seems to be from 2003, so all the old posts were probably in the old 4um.

It was really funny when people would diss his contributions to the Sugercubes songs, and he would make a witty remark and they would go like "Is that really Einar :shifty: "

Ah, memories, I feel old now! :oops:

Oh, found another one, I'm guessing the capitalisation was added later on:

"I was talking to a friend about it recently and I told him that the thing about making that film that upset me most was how cruel Lars is to the woman he is working with. Not that I can't take it, because I'm pretty tough and completely capable of defending myself, but because my ideals of the ultimate creator were shattered. And my friend said "What did you expect? All major directors are "sexist", a maker is not necessarily an expert in human rights or female/male equality!
My answer was that you can take quite sexist film directors like Woody Allen or Stanley Kubrick and still they are the one that provide the soul to their movies. In Lars von Trier's case it is not so and he knows it. He needs a female to provide his work soul. And he envies them and hates them for it. So he has to destroy them during the filming. And hide the evidence. What saves him as an artist, though, is that he is so painfully honest that even though he will manage to cover up his crime in the "real" world (he is a genius to set things up that everybody thinks it is just his female-actress-at-the-moment imagination, that she is just hysterical or pre-menstrual), his films become a documentation of this "soul-robbery". Breaking the Waves is the clearest example of that.
bjork."
