    Happy Birthday!

    To celebrate the great renaissance man's 53rd birthday, the extraordinary talents of the musician, songwriter, author, screenwriter, and film actor, here is what for me remains his finest moment, the story of a man awaiting his destiny on the electric chair and ruminating on...

    Bad Sex

    I noticed that Nick Cave had been nominated in the 'Bad Sex' in Fiction award, for 'The Death of Bunny Munro'. Has anybody read the book, and if so 'How was it for you?' ;) Mizz

    Straight to you

    I posted some lyrics from Brother, my cup is empty to a different group earlier, today. And now, I've gone looking for a group specifically for Nick Cave's music, so I can post some of my favourite lyrics from a different song - just to present a contrast. So these are from...

    I Love Listening To Nick....

    I have been listening to "And no more shall we part" this afternoon with a glass or two of champagne, a beautiful way to spend a Sunday afternoon...makes me want to get reaquainted with my violin.

    I hold this letter in my handA plea,

    a petition, a kind of prayerI hope it does as I have plannedLosing her again is more than I can bearI kiss the cold, white envelopeI press my lips against her nameTwo hundred words. We live in hopeThe sky hangs heavy with rain

    Every Once In A While

    I someone says something that reminds me of Nick Cave and I just have to stop and put the song on and listen to his beautiful lyrics.  Then one thing leads to another and I can't get his songs out of my head for weeks.  I love all of his Bad Seeds and Birthday party...

    Yes, All the Time.

    I love the man with a passion! In December 2004, I flew interstate alone to go see him lecture about storytelling. I met him later at a signing and told him where I had flown from (our home town), he smiled and said I should have stayed there because it rocks. He signed "...

    I'm just starting to get into this band but I find the more I listen to them, the more I love them. Nick's voice is just raw power, raw emotion, raw poetry. I love the dark vibes of the bad seeds, and I love the fact that they really aren't like anything else I've heard before...

    I Let Love In

    Nick Cave is partially responsible for me finding my life-partner, listening to him reminds me of the time we spent together just getting to know each other, of falling in love with him and yearning to be with him.  I'm on fire.
