PLEASE GOD LET ME GET A JOB SO I CAN AFFORD TO GO TO THIS.
On why he declined his MTV nomination in the Best Male Artist category in 1996: Nick Cave:
“My relationship with my muse is a delicate one at the best of times and I feel it my duty to protect her from influences that may offend her fragile nature. She comes to me with the gift of song and in return I treat her with the rest I feel she deserves—in this case, this means not subjecting her to the indignities of judgement and competition. My muse is not a horse and I am in no horse race and, indeed, if she was, still I would not harness her to this tumbrel—this bloody cart of severed heads and glittering prizes. My muse may spook! May bolt! May abandon me completely.”
The next time I get asked, why I didn’t enter this or that writing competition…I’m going to quote Nick Cave. Love this.
Bela Lugosi’s Roller Skates
Because Lugosi never learned to drive he got around Hollywood on rollerskates.
Vampira describes her first meeting with Bela : “I was a young girl window-shopping on Hollywood Boulevard. I was bending low to see the detail of some shoes and someone whizzed around the corner on rollerskates, almost bumped my fanny and crashed into me. ‘Pardon me,’ said he, and ‘Pardon me,’ said I. He was wearing an Ascot cravat and a beret. It was Bela Lugosi on rollerskates. He was on his way to a cigar store.”
