To be honest, I always admired him for having such skinny legs. Cycling is the
best sport for Simon, mainly because he's using his arms and fingers on stage,
though he acted like "Mr. Whirlwind" at times, but I think it's his personality. He's
doing something for his circulation as well. It's even better than running - that puts
constant pressure on your feet, knees and spine. Great photos and very interesting!
With the smaller club gigs, I often decide on the day whether I'll do the drive or not.

Currently I'm planning on seeing Dirtmusic in early November, TV Smith in December.

I'm reading "Room to Dream" written by David Lynch and Kristine McKenna

An unusual hybrid of biography and memoir, Room to Dream alternates chapters by each writer. First, co-author McKenna supplies a conventional biographical account of Lynch’s life, reported through conversations with his family members, his friends from childhood to the present day, and such collaborators and supporters as Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, and Naomi Watts; then Lynch responds to that material in chapters that read like transcribed and lightly edited interviews.

Room to Dream devotes almost as much of its page count to his visual-arts career as to his films. He loves to make things with his hands, from the shed he built for his landlord out of scrap wood when he was living in a Hollywood bungalow during the 1970s to the furniture he has designed more recently...
He began making short art films after feeling the desire to add movement to his paintings.

Room to Dream runs on the ebullience of Lynch’s creative process: his gee-willikers enthusiasm, his quirks, his often cryptic yet effective direction of actors (“It needs a little more wind,” he once told MacLachlan, the star of Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks), his openness to improvisation and luck, his do-it-yourself spirit. By all accounts, actors adore him, and a few—Nance, Dern, Watts—have worked for him repeatedly, even when it meant having to do things like don suffocating rabbit costumes to make web videos that no one understands. Don Murray, whose Hollywood career stretches back to playing opposite Marilyn Monroe, describes the set of Twin Peaks: The Return as the happiest he had ever been to. The Lynch of Room to Dream is uniformly kind, considerate and cheerful, with an almost superhuman ability to remember everybody’s first name, even if it’s just the kid who brings him coffee.

Of course, the great puzzle of David Lynch is how this sunny personality can create such disturbing films. Or perhaps it’s no puzzle at all, and every shadow in his psyche gets so comprehensively siphoned off onto screen and canvas that there’s none left to trouble his actual life.

Been (re-)watching "The Sopranos". Hadn't seen all of it back in the day, so time to do some catching up...
I wish I could say that I will be able to see The Cure a few times next year incl. travelling to a nice place (e.g. Athens or Dublin), but I will have to wait how my situation will be in 2019. Might be better, but maybe not good enough to travel a lot.  :neutral-face

Yeah, it sounds funny how he "secretly" goes riding his bike, while Robert's asleep!  XD

13.11 The Twilight Sad (Vienna, Austria)
You look like you have two back to back, you gonna have to jump on a flight to Vienna on the day of the gig?

No. Vienna is just 1h by train from Bratislava:)

Hahaha ok. As you can see, geography is not my strong suit  :rofl
