New Nick Cave:
Snag offered to rip my arm off to see Cave on the new tour (Nick tours less than Elvis Costello, for fuck’s sake). However, no NCATBS stops in Milwaukee, so Snag did not have to find another excuse not to visit.
“ten-ton catastrophe on a 60 pound chain”. Wow. That’s a good one.
It’s kinda mellow, though not as soporific as The Boatman’s Call, my LEAST favorite Nick Cave album.
Of course, my FAVORITE Nick Cave album is the ghastly Murder Ballads. Not only is it aggressively dire and full of foul lyrics, one reviewer counted over two hundred murders in the course of the songs. Plus, the group singalong on “Death Is Not The End” makes it a terrifying dirge, rather than a song of hope. I kind of liked that.
and here is a zombie-themed version:
I love the internoozles.
BTW, here is what was going on last sunday:
We had yet to attach the shooter or finish the intake, but this was the final wire of the drive train. Programmers have since increased the throughput on the motor controllers, so it’s zippier. Sealed it into it’s bag on Tuesday, tried to recover from the cold that another mentor gave me on Wednesday and Thursday, and today tried to catch up on work while shoveling the drives (thanks for all the help, zombie family!).
Now, is there anybody out there?
