Accidents Will Happen

There's a certain voyeuristic delight in watching Nick Cave sing. The way the veins in his head swell with every enunciation you half expect him to have a massive aneurysm at any moment. It's a guilty, razor's edge thrill, like watching auto racing, or attending an air show.

On the turntable: Jimmy Smith, "Groovin' at Small's Paradise"
On the nighttable: David Frawley, "Yoga and Ayurveda"
On the reel table: "The Soul of a Man" (Wenders, 2003)
