Paris

There are no word for what happened in Paris on Friday but my thoughts are with all the victims of the attacks and the people who are affected daily by terrorism. I hope your loved ones are safe.

Shilpa Ray – @shilparayisgod Touring Europe

This is slightly off topic but I thought I’d let you know that the amazingly talented Shilpa Ray is currently touring Europe. Her name might sound familiar to you because she has supported Grinderman and the Bad Seeds in the past.

She also worked with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis on this great cover of Pirate Jenny.

If she comes to a city near you, don’t hesitate to go. She has such a unique voice and deserves to be known.

Movie adaptation of The Death of Bunny Munro

bmIt’s been reported that Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw, who are Melbourne producers, have launched Carver Films, and are set to produce The Death of Bunny Munro. The novel will be adapted by Nick Cave, and directed by Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth (20,000 Days on Earth). I don’t know about you but I can’t think of better directors than Jane and Iain considering how fantastic 20,000 Days on Earth was.

Financing and casting have just started so it might be a while before it hits the big screen but it’s a fantastic project to look forward to.

P.S.: I have made the banner a bit more Halloween-y. Hope you like! 😉
