Recently saw an exhibition on Mr Cave..

Could listen to this for 7 centuries..and still be ready for another 7...music that visits my soul...

While in Germany he gave a 48 minute talk on The Love Song...at the exhibition there were headphones where you could listen..I snatched a chair from the theatrette...(don't worry..there were plenty available!)..sat and listened to this amazing soul talk about the love song...tears...

one of the reviews:
even if he hadn't already produced some of the most disturbingly/hauntingly/terrifyingly beautiful words ever too be set to paper or music - listen to this and then press repeat - the most complete religious viewpoint to emerge from the melee known an popular music in many a decade

by the time I left the exhibition I felt I'd been to heaven and hell at the same time...

am writing this with Into My Arms playing...

He heard a publisher wanted authors to write introductions to various books of the bible..he was interested and asked if all the gospels were taken...he was surprised to be told they were all available..he'd take Mark thank you very much...feels Mark wrote like a child..this happened and that happened and then this and then that...

handwritten notes to read...I seemed to actually touch the ink...through the glass cabinet...he was writing in a place 'that catered for those of us who have swum too many laps of the abyss'...can you even imagine a more spot on description of those moments...

alongside this ..in the next glass section was...wait for it...the handwritten screenplay of The Proposition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there there there were the words the magical Ray Winstone spoke to Guy Pearce...how did I not faint..me who drinks in the tangible and the other..

by golly..you've read to the end...!

hugs...and shall we clink glasses ....to folk such as Nick Cave who gift us with wonder...reminding us of wonderment and all its complexity...

Heh, heh... Ray Winstone... In the late 1970s a very young Ray Winstone played Will Scarlet in Robin Hood. He wasn't the star but was the only one who went on to become one. That Robin Hood was Michael Praed - one of the best Robin Hoods I've seen on tv. Even better than the new 21st century one. He was in the series for a while and then Jason Connery took over. Connery tho' was blonde and somehow wasn't quite Robin Hood. A fine and competent actor like his old dad, but not quite Robin Hood.

Now Nick Cave... he'd be a great Robin Hood!! Robin Hood and the Bad Seeds perhaps!!
