Happy 52nd Birthday, Mr. Cave!

Happy 52nd Birthday, Nick!

WOOHOOO!!!!!! *throws confetti*

I will be scanning and sending the digital copy of the fanbook to you all within the next day or so. WOOT! Thank you again to all who contributed. I GUARANTEE he will get nothing else like it this year. :D Wait'll you all (the contributors, anyway - I will share some random crap from it [not photos of people, though] with the rest of you) see it - it is truly the best book ever, almost.

To celebrate with you all, I'd like to HIGHLY recommend you all check out Caroline's photos from the reading, as well as her videos from the Ottawa reading. WOOHOO! Lucky, lucky lady. :D

Caroline's right; the part in which he talks about the Gladiator II script is fucking AMAZING. He imitates Russell Crowe and, guh...it's just FANTASTIC!

Off I go to finish scanning the book, then I will send it. I am celebrating (yesterday was MY birthday) by drinking with a friend and pondering the greatness that is Mr. Cave. Yep. :D

Help Me Or This WILL Become Nick's New Look!

If any of you could make zip files of ANY NC pics, I would love you.

Besides...Sept. 21st, the day before Nick's birthday, is MY BIRTHDAY. This would be a super present!

I did have a point to asking. My hard drive crashed, but I got a program that restored a shitload of my files. HURRAH! Happy birthday to meeeee!

Seriously, though...zips of NC pics would be a swell bday gift. Even if I have most of 'em, there will more than likely be something I've never seen. :D

I will beg you with this:

Goin' Platinum

If some of you hadn't heard, my external hard drive went kaput and I am trying to recover 1000s of NC pics, as well as personal stuff. LAME.

Anyway, spinner.com has a list up of the best musicians-as-actors, like...thing. Wow, brainfart. Whatever. Musicians in film roles, there, THAT. Nick made the list, and so did Mr. Tom Fuckin' Waits. WOOHOO!

Click image to be taken to the list.

Tuesday's B&N Reading

Death of Bunny Munro photos from vaduzuvunt on Flickr. CHECK 'EM OUT! I have a headache, so forgive the shitty quality of this post. There are like 50+ pics there, though, and the facial expressions Nick makes are AMAZING. :D

I hate money

My bank account is overdrawn, so I can't send the book off, even though it will cost like $10. RIDICULOUS. I just wrote the CEO of Bank of America, yeah, buddy (no, seriously, I did - $135 in overdraft fees is fuckin' ridiculous).

Anyway...Nick WILL get the book after his birthday, but get it he shall. My financial situation just sucks a big one right now. The book is fucking DONE and I can't send it. I am pissed.

Have a great day! I am off to go for a walk and listen to Murder Ballads.

Mack the Knife & His Bad Dancing

I just googled and found that this was over on NCF at one time, but just so I never, NEVER lose this...I am posting it here.

corpse_in_snow over at LiveJournal posted this. WHY had I never seen it? It is AMAZING! I love Mr. Cave's shitty-awesome dancing, ALWAYS.

It's taking me forever with the book cuz I've actually been working (my last week before going back to college), plus I've been kinda sick.

I think it'll be going out Wednesday, a week and a half later than I was expecting. Possibly even Thursday, cuz I'm lame like that. I don't have any money at the moment, but it WILL get sent. Blaaaaaaaaaaargh. :P and hmmph.

Second Grinderman Album Done!

Mr. Cave is pleased to inform you...

As reported by NME [ LINK ]:

Grinderman have completed recording their second album, due for release next year, band member Warren Ellis has confirmed.

The multi-instrumentalist told Thequietus.com that the new album from the band, featuring members of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, was a big departure from their 2007 self-titled debut.

"We finished the Grinderman album three weeks ago," he said. "I mixed it over the summer. We’ve still got to do the track ordering, and a few tweaks on the mastering, but the album's there."

"It’s very different from [Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds' latest album] 'Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!' and it's very different from the first Grinderman album. There's an attitude in there that's similar, but sonically it's got some pretty weird things going on.

"It’s kind of like stoner rock meets Sly Stone via Amon Duul. Nick's got a different thing going on with the lyrics than he would have from the Bad Seeds. Less sex? I wouldn’t say that."

Warren Ellis and Nick Cave are set to release a joint album, 'White Lunar', on September 22, featuring soundtrack music they have composed for various films.

Will this bring in the second coming of the Magical 'Stache of Doom? The masses pray so, but time shall tell!

OMG This rules

The 'stache book is seriously the greatest thing I have EVER made. It will be sent off later than planned, but oh god. You will all die of hysteria.

Here...to tide you over. GIF of the eternally splashing Nick. Capped from the Ritual Habitual goodies that NCF shared.

Slight Alteration

Slight (slight) change of plans. My husband had a great idea. Send one copy to Mr. Cave now, and keep one for when I see him live next (or whenever Grinderman tour next). I will, of course, be front row and will be able to give it to him personally, ensuring that he has a copy.

But of course, it's his birthday SOON, so I must send a copy now. The worst that could happen during the Grinderman show is he says, "Great, I got another one of these fuckin' things." ;)

I've contacted Mute, Canongate, and ANTI and am waiting to hear back if any of them forward on mail to Mr. Cave.

The book cover is done, anyway. I'm not very crafty, so I hope you all aren't like, "oh. My. God. THAT...is fucking HORRENDOUS" when you see it. :D

Book to Begin Tomorrow! WOOT!

First of all:

Thank you to everyone who contributed for the fan book! I am still waiting on a few people's entries, including my own. So we will have around 14 'staches, which is more than I was expecting. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!

I will be sending the book off on Tuesday. If you missed the cut-off date of the 3rd, bust your butt and get it to me by Monday night!

In case I didn't tell you, we are making two copies of the book. One will be sent to Canongate (or his American publisher), and one to his record company. I don't want to send one and have it get tossed out without getting to him. This way, there's a greater chance he'll receive a copy. I will, of course, put a note with each one to apologize in case he gets both of them.

I know what I want to do with the cover, and I think you will all understand when you see it. Design-wise, I will try to go with things that make sense. I will try to make you all proud. I'm going to start the book with a letter from all of us, just a general (yet 'stache-a-riffic) letter of birthday wishes and thanks from all the fans.

What random things do you all know that Mr. Cave likes? Or stuff he's referenced or sums him up a bit? Leave me huge, big-ass lists. There's a reason. The reason being, collages to decorate the pages. I don't want every page to be full of black crows and bunnies, but y'know. :D GO NUTS!

Tuesday, September 1, 2009


This is basically your final notice. However, if you want to take part, but can't get something to me by the 3rd, email me at ziggy_star(at)comcast(dot)net to let me know when you'll have it to me.

With his book tour and everything, I'm assuming IF (big IF) Mr. Cave gets the book, it'll be months past his birthday anyway. At the very least, we will all be able to laugh at ourselves and each other looking Cave-ified. :D

I will share some Cave goodies within the next few days. :D
