* 2,038 miles and we have returned! I will post about the roadtrip/visit tomorrow. But first, another video from THE album.

The videos are live and different versions than the album songs. The videos are better. Nick is so tortured, though, it's hard to watch. A little known fact is that Warren Ellis, violinist and musician extraordinaire, is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL man in rock and roll. This is a true thing. Fact. And he, too, is looking haggard.

One More Time With Feeling is going to return to the cinema in December. I wish it was showing closer to me.

This song....is insanely difficult. It doesn't sound hopeful to me any more. It did at first. But now...I don't know. I wonder about this lyric - The song, the song it spins now since nineteen eighty-four and this insanely legendary image of Nick's wife, Susie, Arthur's mother, circa 1984 -

I used to think that when you died you kind of wandered the world
In a slumber til your crumble were absorbed into the earth
Well, I don't think that any more the phone it rings no more

Such a sad song. So so sad.

You're back! I hope your trip, and your time with Kidling1 was wonderful.

It snowed today. :-(

The album is just so painful.

I'm back!!! It was wonderful, it really was.

Snow????? Wow! I'm jealous!

You want our snow? It's yours! :-)

Today we have fog--all day. That's unusual. Ordinarily it clears up in a couple of hours. But today we had it all day long.

Can't wait for the photos and update on your visit and road trip. :-D

Warren Ellis, like... comic guy?

I'm the worst fan in the world. I know this about myself, generally: I can't remember clever lines, titles, names, whatever, but I still feel sort of bad not knowing Warren Ellis played violin. I swoon.

Hee! No, not that Warren Ellis! Common mistake. This is the Australian violinist of The Dirty Three who joined up with The Bad Seeds several decades ago.

I would love to see multi-talented talents out there....

Oh! I didn't even have a conception that there could BE another Warren Ellis! And I do actually listen to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds :P Go figure...

I'm glad the trip went well-- that is ungodly long-- and hope the visit with your daughter was all you could have hoped for and more. :)
