Nick Cave goes to the theatre

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

:oops:

These things can happen. It might supply the comedy one-liners timsinister was yearning for.

Must be in the fingers this week...making HL men :oops:

What is this world coming to....do men not receive compliments from women anymore? Or are the women you are around believe in the leap year crap? In my books women can make men blush....it is quite rewarding and it makes me smile.

Still wanting that date andymackem?

Sweetheart, there is a vacancy in my diary that you're always welcome to fill. But I'd hate to steal you from the rest of your family. I'd feel responsible, and that's never comfortable for me.

Went to see the play on Saturday. Not bad, but not essential.

One very good, balls out rocking affair from Mr Cave (recorded, not live, obviously) in the style of Loverman. And a neat visual gag in having the Drum Major's henchmen appearing as a dozen or so bewigged Cave-a-likes strutting around.

The play was interesting. Very physical, lots of swinging on trapezes, climbing ropes and splashing around in tanks of water. As an interpretation it worked less well than Vesturport's attempt at Romeo & Juliet, which was brilliant, but was fairly effective.

The play itself is the first great modernist work, and betrays everything which that may imply. Quite glad I went to see it, but not sure I'd go back again.
