Go for Bjork! Kooky Swan-Dressing Singer Said to Be Switching Nests

transom bjork1v Go for Bjork! Kooky Swan Dressing Singer Said to Be Switching NestsThe exclusive hamlet of Snedens Landing, a posh enclave in southern Rockland County, New York, often referred to as Hollywood on the Hudson, is abuzz with the news that one of its most colorful residents, the singer Bjork, is moving.

A source overheard the singer, perhaps most famous for wearing a dress shaped like a swan to the 2001 Academy Awards, confirming this information herself the other day while at the checkout stand at the Community Market in the neighboring town of Piermont, famed as the longtime residence of actor William Hurt.

“I hear you will be leaving us,” the source recalls the store clerk asking the diminutive Icelandic singer, who was clad in purple tights, a green shirt and a pink jacket.

“Well, I am changing houses, but I will still be around,” Bjork allegedly replied, before loading her groceries onto her bike and peddling off, one presumes toward the house she is currently selling.

The singer’s rep didn’t return calls, but a real estate source confirmed that she is quietly shopping her current place for $3.5 million. Perched on the edge of a rocky hill that spills down to the Hudson, with a stone exterior and sharply peaked roof, it looks like a place where an elf would live, that source said. Neighbors include game-show gazillionaire Chuck Barris, the actors Al Pacino and Bill Murray, and the ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov.

“She’s such a wonderful, odd sight,” said one person who lives nearby. “It’s a shame she’s leaving.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
