Interesting article about their trip this year. Those icelandic women can party, and QT is so smooth.
Iceland Review (1/5/08)
"In a crowded ReykjavÃk bar I sit by myself hunched over my notebook. Iâ€™m scribbling down notes on the masses of Icelanders out on the town in hopes of catching a glimpse of or meeting Quentin Tarantino.
A few years back Tarantino came over for New Yearâ€™s Eve in Iceland and he returned on the 27th of December 2007 for another round of waving the old year goodbye, Icelandic style. The frenzy was almost instant especially as he, and director Eli Roth (of Hostel fame) proclaimed they would be partying in town on the 28th and according to Icelandic news website, visir.is, were looking forward to checking out the womenfolk.
How interesting I thought as I sat scribbling at a table in one of ReykjavÃkâ€™s many party hot spots, how the atmosphere changes when he is around. With a substantial fanbase in Iceland (myself included) people are drawn to him but at the same time there are people who dislike some of the things he has said about the country on return to the US.
The most prominent example derives from an appearance on the Conan Oâ€™Brien show in 2006 after his first New Yearâ€™s visit when he outlined that:
â€œI almost canâ€™t imagine New Yearâ€™s anywhere else after that. Because like one: Icelanders, they go and they drink like crazy any old way, but on New Yearâ€™s, they lose their minds, in particularly the women lose their minds and like drink like crazy and I remember we were in this club with all these drunken girls, and this one girl was like you know, â€˜Oh man, Iâ€™m so embarrassed about Icelandic women, they always go out, and they always drink way too much, and make complete fools out of themselves.â€™ Well right at the moment after she said that, a drunken girl walks by and does a face plant â€“ BAM! â€“ right in front of us.â€
