Small object of desire #10 – Idiosyncrasy
Yes I know, idiosyncrasy is not an object. But I’m a poet and us poets own licentia poetica (that’s poetic licence to you and me) like we don’t own cold, hard cash. In any case, I covered myself when I defined the parameters within which this blog would operate (see SOOD #9).
Anyway idiosyncrasy…..n. a behavioral attribute that is distinctive and peculiar to an individual.
So a very particular thing then. Particularly when you are considering the reasons why you like one thing and not another. I like the music of Radiohead and I like this video for the lead track, Lotus Flower, off their new album, The King of Limbs.
Thom Yorke’s dancing is…well…idiosyncratic. I like the total commitment he gives to dancing in this very strange way. It’s as brilliant as it’s bizarre. The king of limbs indeed.
So some very idiosyncratic dancing and music from a very idiosyncratic band then.
