Have you ever met someone on the internet that you liked so much that you sometimes sit there and think “Oh man there are people who are lucky enough to see this person IN THE FLESH ON A REGULAR BASIS and I wonder if they realize how LUCKY they are”

MyMusicIHeart: Why music?

mymusiciheart:

Music is storming, driving, relentless, devotional, slinky, subtle, heartbreakingly-beautiful sounds that, lyrically, switch from the cynical to the sanguine, the defeated to the defiant, dealing in love, war, beauty, children, romance, rejection, Pethedine, poetry, panties, God, Auden, Johnny…

The project for a novel starts to take shape developing out of the incredible amount of papers which Nick has been accumulating during the years. As Blixa puts it in a short poem titled Slip of paper: Sometimes Nicholas Edward Cave is surrounded and chased by slips of paper. He makes use of them all and he loses them and forgets them everywhere. His handwriting tends to the microscopic (microbaroque) in the morning and changes under the weight of time (block letters). Some of these pieces of writing sometimes are summarised in notebooks, which, because it is necessary for working to have them, will be then sent after him by courier by air mail, by express or by taxi. One of Nick’s standard questions is ‘Have you seen my black folder?’

Reflections Portraits by Tom Hussey

Tom Hussey portrays old people looking at their younger reflection in the mirror. These photographs are beautiful and melancholic.

So beautiful…. :’|

abominablethings replied to your post: The Eternal Post-concert Depression

I know the feeling. I saw them in October but I still suffer from Post-Portishead Depression.

:> Yeah.. Such a bitter-sweet feeling, isn’t it? :D

The Eternal Post-concert Depression

This isn’t normal behaviour. It’s been more than 8 months since the concert and I still can’t listen to Grinderman without getting at least slightly teary-eyed and/or nostalgic. I’m such an emotional wreck….

Oh well, I guess this means the show was good. But it wasn’t. It was BEYOND beyond amazing, and even more than that… I miss them!

And I’ll shut up now. (Btw. it’s 10am and I haven’t slept properly for 2 days. :| Perhaps I should go to bed now….?)

IIII dooon’t waaant youuuu toooo set meee freeee….. :P
