Miscellany

I've come up with my master list of assignments for the Lost "Hidden Connections" ficathon, at last! Woo! 32 people signed up! A bit of work juggling all the requests and making sure Kate-haters got no Kate and het-fanciers got no slash. Whew! Started to email assignments and will finish up by end of tomorrow.

ETA: Oops. Make that 34, including me. (Juggles again. Sigh.) Man. I'm wiped now. Except I think these assignments are now better divvied up. So yay! (Goes to get eyedrops.) At least I got an even amount of paricipants. ;-D

If you're a fan of Nick Cave, or curious about him at all, I wrote a profile of him over at audiography. Several songs to DL as well.

Where did the weekend go? I had friends in from out of town and we had a good time traipsing around LA. It's fun to play tour guide. I think I'm mostly caught up with my flist now... ;-D

Wow, that comm really *is* tailor-made for you ;D But I think that person who asked you if you "wrote that yourself or lifted it" was a little rude...

I'm a dilettante compared to most folks over there! But it's a great comm.

But yeah, that guy was damning with faint praise, wasn't he?

That's great! He's my favorite singer, definitely, although as I said I'm more about his earlier stuff. Isn't that true of so many artists? Even U2, who are still going strong - I just prefer them circa "War" or "Unforgettable Fire."

Thanks for the props, babe! ;-D

Really well written piece on Mr Cave, good job!
Plus some nice choices musicwise too, altho you didn't pick my personal fave "Stagger Lee" - something about him in the video wearing a pink Take That T shirt always stays with me when I hear the song ;)

Hey! Thanks! ;-D I was very close to choosing "Stagger Lee." I do love that song! I never saw that video, though! o__O Man, I'd love a Nick Cave video collection. I've only ever seen a handful.

I only have "Henry's Dream" and "The Good Son" on tape! I'd love to get those on CD at some point. I know Nick isn't very fond of those albums but there's a lot of songs I like on them. I love "The Good Son," the song. I recently saw a LOTR vid made of Boromir/Faramir/Denethor set to that song. Excellent choice, and that's my fave storyline in LOTR anyway, so yay for that combo.

There is a Nick Cave video collection dvd in existence but I think its region 2 only - I'll check my copy later and see...

Henry's Dream I can help you out with as I have that on cd and thus it can be shared ;) Its actually my favourite album but mainly because it came out at a particularly good time in my life and so it has good memories associated with it. Plus "Papa won't leave you Henry" always went down a storm in my djing days!
The Good Son I think I only have on vinyl (again I'll check) my Nick Cave collection is kind of scattered throughout my house so I'm not exactly sure where it is... *needs to organise her life*
The combo of Boromir/Faramir/Denethor and that song sounds really interesting.

Ooh, I'd love "Henry's Dream!" ;-D Thanks. I have a flexi-single that came in a magazine - "There's a Girl at the Bottom of My Glass." When I (finally) get ripping, I can share that one, unless you already have it.

I found a link to that LOTR/Good Son vid:

I'm such a sucker for daddy issues! Hence the Lost love!

I'm glad someone's caught up, I've only just begun!
