He Tries to Run But He Don't Get Far

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have three massive tests this upcoming Tuesday and Wednesday, and I've been busy not preparing for them.

It would really behoove you (if I used that right) to check out this amazing photo from Rui Mendes on Flickr: Oh, the beauty!

Just click that. I am too lazy to ask the photographer if I can post it here, and there you go. It's a damned great picture.

I can't remember if I've seen this interview, but it deserves multiple viewings:

Basically, ALL of youtube user jokkoapa6's channel rules. Just browse through it and you'll find stuff like this: TADA! and a bunch of great 70's punk stuff as well.

Also, this is bloody amazing (black sparkles! the hair!):

And pvblovideos has a nice concert that starts with this:

Playlist: Cave's 1994 Favorites

RutgerHK over on the forums posted this. I thought it was interesting to see what Mr. Cave enjoyed in 1994.

This is from a 1994 episode of MTV's 120 Minutes. RutgerHK says, "The episode is hosted by Nick Cave and he plays his favourite videos as well as some of his own music. I tried to find the playlist online, but I could hardly find any page referring to this particular show. So I thought I might as well post it here. Hope you like it."
