So, the test wasn't  as difficult as I thought it'd be. That doesn't mean I didn't fuck it up though. I don't feel that good about writing, 'cause the topics were terrible, and listening was a small disaster too. I'm too tired to rant about it now, maybe later.

Also, I've been messing around a bit and made myself a header. Dunno if I like it enough to keep it but it'll have to do for now. Yes, it's Nick Cave. And the lyrics are from 'Lay Me Low', by Nick, clearly.

Tomorrow (or today, really) I'm going to lunch with my father, eh. So that should be interesting.

Bed now, I can hardly keep my eyes open. Night! =)

There are times when I adore my mother, seriously.

So I'm sitting here, listening to Johny Cash's cover of Nick Cave's The Mercy Seat and looking at some pics of Chester (LP) from a Ve'Cel photo shoot. And my mother comes in...

Mom: Is that Johny Cash?
Me: Yeah, but the song is by -
Mom: Nick, I know.
Me: How do you know?
Mom: *ignoring the question and pointing at Chester's crotch* Is that his penis?
Me: Er, guess so.
Mom: Dude, what a huge cock!
Me: *mouth hangs open*
Mom: Lunch will be in a minute. *leaves*

Really, it was rather surreal lmao

On another note, I need to finish this!!!!! God, this fic sucks more than anything I've ever written and it's not even done yet. And I can't think of a decent ending! *weeps*

Edit: This is the first time I need an actual help with a fic and nobody's here right now. Good times.

I originally uploaded them for [profile] thegreenkat but I thought maybe somebody else would like to get them too before the link expires=) I cannot be bothered to write all the songs that are there down but they're from various albums from the Birthday Party to DIG LAZARUS DIG!!! My favourites, mostly, so I guess any proper Nick fan has them all already. Anyways, feel free to grab them=)

They're taking me down, my friend
And as they usher me off to my end
Will I bid you adieu?
Or will I be seeing you soon?
If what they say around here is true
Then we'll meet again
Me and you

My time is at hand, my dove
They're gunna pass me to that house above
Is Heaven just for victims, dear?
Where only those in pain go?
Well it takes two to tango
We will meet again, my love
I know

If you're in Heaven then you'll forgive me, dear
Because that's what they do up there
If you're in Hell, then what can I say
You probably deserved it anyway
I guess I'm gunna find out any day
For we'll meet again
And there'll be Hell to pay

Your face comes to me from the depths, dear
Your silent mouth mouths, 'Yes", dear
Dark red and big with blood
They're gunna shut me down, my love
They're gunna launch me into the stars
Well, all things come to pass
Glory hallelujah

This prayer is for you, my love
Sent on the wings of a dove
An idiot prayer of empty words
Love, dear, is strictly for the birds
We each get what we deserve
My little snow white dove
Rest assured

by Nick Cave (of course)

Really, Nick's music is the only thing keeping me sane right now. My dreams are haunted by Homers, Byrons, Hugos, Dostoevskys, Hemingways, Burroughses etc. etc. and it's really hard to think about anything else anymore. If I survive this week I'll be really surprised.

'Kay, I'm off to study at least three (better four *whimper*) questions.
barush: (dark genius nick)
Okay, so the long anticipated Nick Cave concert post is here lol Sorry if I've made you expect something of this 'cause... it's gonna be random and interesting like only for me. Anyways, here it is=)
Rant )

Nick rant )

And here are some vids I took=) If nothing, then red Right Hand is really worth watching for the awesomely changed lyrics at one point=)

Okay, so that's it. Thanx for your attention=)
barush: (dark genius nick)
So today's the Nick Cave concert, yay! Can't wait *swoons*  My friend even lent me her camera so I should be able to take some half decent pics=)

However, before I leave, I should write an essay, guh. On euthanasia, if it's 'mercy killing' or 'murder'. Oh well, it's the last essay to English this year and I don't really need to get the best possible results as I already have written four essays that got a pretty good number of points and I'll be handing them in for my finals. But it doesn't need to suck either so I should probably start and try to make it at least presentable somehow. If only I wasn't so lazy.

Whatever. See you tomorrow, rambling about Nick, probably=)
barush: (dark genius nick)

Okay, I'm alright. I'm gonna see the man *dead* It's like a dream come true lmao Although we have like The Worst tickets for sitting, so I guess I won't actually see much but whatever. The thing is... I'm going to a Nick Cave concert. Oh my God.
barush: (15 feet)
If anyone wants a good a cry, go here and listen either to Hold Onto Yourself, Jesus Of The Moon or Midnight Man maybe too.

If you are a Nick Cave fan go there as well and listen to the whole album. You'll love it.

If you are me then crawl into a dark corner and think.

So I'm watching Nick Cave vids on youtube and randomly decide to go through the related comments.

So cool to see this, its excellent,i was in a rehab with nick in 1988 and this is the first thing ive heard i really like this is excellent...."

That made me laugh so hard! Totally made my day <33 Dunno, the person might not be kidding and that makes it even more amazing=)) You can always rely on youtube comments to amuse you hehe

Random, I know. Just couldn't help myself.

Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God.


24th May. I am SO going to go there!! Whatever it costs. 'Cause, I mean, oh my fucking God.

Now I'm going to bed though.
barush: (john lennon)
This is just random. I really should be writing or at least reading now, but no, I'm just browsing random sites and listening to various songs either by Chester or Nick. I know I need a life but I'm alright like this, for the time being. Only, I need somebody to kick my ass from time to time and make me do the stuff I should.

Anyone up for the job?

In the meantime, you all need to see The Perfect Pic.

There can't be anything better than Nick and Camus in one pic=)
barush: (loverman)
So finally I've managed to get the song, yay! Nick Cave's version of "In The Ghetto". It's fabulous, really=) I'm not keen on the original version so much but this one is awesome. And no, it doesn't have anything to do with my obsession with Nick!=)

Anyways, I've found even a video on youtube=) Nick is totally stoned in that but looks tremendously adorable! I must share it=)

That what happens there beyond the glass
Is simply none of your concern?
God has given you but one heart
You are not a home for the hearts of your brothers

So I'm sitting here, listening to Nick Cave's (what a surprise) "As I Sat Sadly By Her Side" and trying to write. It's supposed to be a drabble, at least that's what I have in mind for this one, but I can't seem to get it right. It's lame. And I want to make it somewhat decent as it might be the last thing I'll ever write The song is kinda distracting me too, but hey, I love it.

I really need to improve my writing 'cause it gets only worse. But, as I said, I might not write anything anymore so I just stick with what I have now and try to finish the drabble. I'm well aware I'm rambling non-sense but I can barely keep my eyes open and just dunno exactly what I'm doing right now. Sleep's digging its claws into my flesh and drags me toward oblivion... I'm not trying to resist anymore, I'm not gonna fight it, it's useless.

You gotta love Nick Cave's lyrics. Random.

And God does not care for your benevolence
Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others
Nor does he care for you to sit
At windows in judgment of the world he created
While sorrows pile up around you
Ugly, useless and over-inflated

...I need twenty big buckets to catch them in
And twenty pretty girls to carry them down
And twenty deep holes to bury them in

It's Saturday morning and I'm bored. Or not bored, that's not the right word, I'm rather anxious. But on the outside I look bored. There are so many things I should/could be doing now, but I can't choose only one of them. That's what makes me anxious and stressed also. I should be fucking writing because I promised I'd write the story. Or that's what I'm telling myself because I lost a bet and therefore I MUST write it... But "promised" sounds better in my head. I should be reading goddamnit, because I'm supposed to finish the book until school starts on Monday. OK, so 250 pages isn't that much and with my 'pace' of reading I'd have it in a few hours. But then again, I'd have to fucking start first. I should be clearing my room 'cause it's a fucking mess. I should be doing  really anything than sitting here and writing this. Well, but that's a typical me, leaving everything to the last possible chance while doing fucking nothing when I have time.

Oh no, wait, I'm listening to Nick Cave's Hallelujah. Now that's
barush: (loverman)
Is it any wonder? Oh my Lord... Oh my Lord... Save yourself... Save yourself... Help yourself... Help yourself...

Oh my Lord...


I'm a bit obsessed... OK, more than a bit... 15 Feet Under Pure White Snow... Rings any bells? No? Your problem...

But this doesn't do him any justice. None whatsoever. Dark genius. Yes, him.

I'm tempted to write a fic to those lyrics. I probably will. Not that it would matter...

barush: (bennoda)
Oh. My. Sweet. Jesus. I can't possibly get enough of this song/video. I'm officially addicted. Yes, I'm talking about "henry Lee" by Nick Cave & P.J. Harvey. The song is so fucking awesome! And the video... They both look so natural and so... in love=) Shame they didn't stay together.

I've discovered my liking for Nick Cave's music only recently (I love his book, for a long time now) so I'm still in state of shock=) It's quite probable I'll mention him here once or twice... a day lol

OK, enough talking, on with the song.
