Nick Cave FACTS revealed

Did you like how I did that? All Inside Edition style? I led you to believe I have exclusive facts--which I do--facts "gleaned" from Pitchfork. You just experienced shoddy journalism in action!

Here's what's going on with Mr. Nick:

-Just released a new novel, The Death of Bunny Munro. Someone let me know how it is, as I am trying to save money/have been reading the same 800+ page book forever because I like going out too much to actually stay in and read it and so I can't afford/have time for a new book, even Nick's. (The book I'm reading is Peter Matthiessen's Shadow Country. In case you were wondering, I love every single one of the aforementioned 800 pages. Swoon!)

-He has teamed up with John Hillcoat, director of the Cave-pennedThe Proposition and the Grinderman videos PLUS MORE, to write a new screenplay. But don't take it from me! "I've written another film script for John Hillcoat for a new movie. It's from a book called The Wettest County in the World, and it's set in the depression," he says. GREAT! I love Nick Cave. I love books about the Depression. And I have a lingering feeling that SO DOES NICK CAVE. Wow. We have SO MUCH IN COMMON. We're both Virgos, too, in case you forgot!

-I told my best friend that the only way I'd ever get married is if a) I could rent peacocks and that monkey and organ grinder that does events on the East Coast and b)if Nick Cave would officiate the ceremony. I also told her that "I bet he would because it seems weird." I wonder how many crazed superfans have already requested for Nick to join them in holy matrimony....I guess this technically isn't anything Nick Cave did. It's something I said whilst on a roadtrip. MEH.

-He did the soundtrack for the upcoming film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

-The work he and Warren Ellis have done on some recent soundtracks (The Road, The Proposition, The Assassination of Jesses James by the Hot Coward Portrayed By Casey Affleck in an Uncharacteristically Hot Role, as well as some little known documentaries like The English Surgeon and The Girls of Phnom Penh is now available in one place, the 3-disc compilation White Lunar.

In support of his new book and such, Nick and co are heading out on a very limited tour. :-(
