The downside is i have a seat in the last row which bums me out but hey its netter then nothing considering the shows all sold out. trust me i was anxiously waiting at 10am for when they went on sale and clicked best available and it was the best i could get.

A quick mix here of two of my loves, English Premier League Football and The Cure.

Robert's football team, Queens Park Rangers (QPR), have just regained promotion to The Premier League for next season.

So congratulations to them and to Robert...Pssst Robert, how about a world tour to celebrate? With the availability of satellite TV you wouldn't even have to miss a match because of it ;).

and while i'm here, i might as well mention: if you have loose DVDs laying around and could use 2 blank DVD cases, i'm selling that here:

THECURE [05 Aug 2010|02:48pm]

I never thought much of The Cure I only knew thier famous hit Just Like Heaven.I remember browsing music and I ran into thier album Pornography since then I've been in love with thier music. Like thier albums Faith and Seventeen Seconds but, Pornography is just the best!

oh man, what has become of my community! it's so quiet here since The Cure seem to be in hibernation. it must be all the snow. not much on the news front other than more remasters coming out soon[ish]?

have any of you read Roger's Disintegration memories? some interesting recollections, especially Tim Burton asking Robert to do the music for Edward Scissorhands and Rob not knowing who he was. tragic.

[07 Oct 2009|04:40pm]

Just so you are aware today is apparently unofficially "Cure Day" on thequestionclub. We have had one person announce they didn't like The Cure in an entry. This then brought about a poll about your age group and feelings about The Cure and then an absolute regurgitation of stereotypes that assumed The Cure are only responsible for depressing music, which, when challenged the poster eased slightly to "Oh not all of their music, just the majority of it is."

Some people have provided youtube videos to show the original poster is incorrect in their assumptions, but as their edit says they are not willing to watch them. The link to it all is here. To think I thought it was us gothic Cure fans that were supposed to be stubborn and unyielding ;).

Hope you enjoy, also, if anyone has any advice for me on how to make better icons, I'd love that. By the way, 'dead space' is not an icon, it's just a filler, please don't take it, haha. Unfortunately, I think I pretty much tapped out on my Robert Smith icons, most of them are pretty much crap; sorry guys.

Goth juice! [11 Sep 2009|04:12pm]


Seems TOTALLY off topic, but it's not!!! Take a look at this product description and tell me it doesn't give you false hope, and tempt you to buy it! Anything that brings me closer to dancing in a castle with Robert is good in my eyes... ;)

Haha, I totally discovered it by mistake. I've really been getting into Lush products and when I saw that it made me deeply happy. Wanted to share it with my fellow Cure-lovers! :)

Cure Shirt For Sell on eBay [29 Jul 2009|03:56pm]

I know that's a high place to start bidding, but this shirt is worth at least that much to me. I snagged it off eBay a few years ago for $80

Какую машину вы водите?
What car do you drive?

Я вожу внедорожники примерно года с 1980-го. Лучшая машина, которая у меня когда-либо была - это Lada, импортированная из России в 1981 г., на кузове которой было два телефонных номера, и оба на русском. Еще у нее была самая горячая печка в мире. Я время от времени катаюсь по бездорожью, не как все, а ночью,  по полям, в нетрезвом состоянии. Первую такую прогулку я совершил во время записи альбома Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me в 1986-м, умудрившись скатиться на "Ниве" со склона горы, причем в машине со мной была вся группа.

I've driven four-wheel-drive cars, since about 1980. The best car I've ever had was a Lada imported from Russia in 1981, which had two dials on it, both in Russian, and the world's hottest heater. I go off-roading occasionally, not properly, but drunkenly at night, across fields. I first did it when we were doing the Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me album in 1986 and I managed to roll the Lada down a mountainside with the whole band in it with me.

Has Robert mentioned having a Twitter? I know there's robert_j_smith, which 3,000 people have followed for some reason when the impostor is NOT TYPING IN CAPS and has a very poor grasp of English. The only other one that looks more likely is smith_robert and 2,000 are following somebody who has never updated and is only following some random bloke from Sussex but his name IS IN CAPS!!

One Hundred Years
A night like this, dedicated to The Cure

Charlie Sometimes
Start Time:
21 April 2009 at 19:00
End Time:
22 April 2009 at 01:00
The Good Ship, NW6 7JR
289 Kilburn High Road
London, United Kingdom


On Tuesday 21st April 2009, The Cure's Robert Smith celebrates his 50th birthday. May marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the first Cure LP, Three Imaginary Boys, and 20 years since arguably their finest album, Disintegration, stumbled blinking into the daylight.

As lifelong fans of The Cure, we thought we'd have a party to celebrate! And so One Hundred Years - 50 plus 30 plus 20, you see - is born.

DJs including Charlie Sometimes (The Fly), One Imaginary Girl (The Luminaire), M (TheQuietus.com), All Cats DJ (Club Hell) and probably some other lovely like minds will be playing Cure tracks old and new all evening, from crackly old bootleg vinyl to shiny mp3.

Expect a wheelbarrow full of classic singles and album tracks, a fair smattering of obscurities, a-sides, b-sides, seasides, insides and outsides.

It's an "Upstairs Room" and there's plenty of space to sit and chat, stand and sway or throw your foot on the dancefloor. Don't be shy now: dance like you can't hear the beat...

Door tax: £3, free before 9pm...

NB Anyone planning on going to see The Eden House at The Luminaire, your Lumi hand stamp/ticket stub will get you into The Good Ship for a reduced price of £2 after the gig!

MTV's ICON [04 Mar 2009|10:02am]

did anyone see that show on MTV called ICON? there was an amazing episode featuring THE CURE and all these bands (razorlight, the deftones etc. etc.) played cure songs in tribute as robert smith and the band watched. then they (THE CURE) went up and played a few songs themselves to close the show. it was AMAZING.

my question is, does anyone know if copies of that show is available, and if so where i can get it? maybe dvd or....?

Robert Silhouettes? [20 Feb 2009|07:15pm]


Once again I am making some Robert-inspired art and I need some nice full body silhouettes of him.  Do any of you have or know where I can find some photos of him where his body is distinctly separated from the background and he's in an attractive standing position?

Thanks for any help you can give me.  If anything good comes of it I'll post it here.

The last time I asked for help in finding the kinds of photos of Robert that I needed for my project I had a lot of very helpful responses.  I ended up making this papercut.

On April 25 we will celebrate the 50th birthday of The Cure Frontman, Robert Smith, with a Live Concert featuring The Cure Cover Band "Cureprojct" integrating The Cure Live Band Karaoke und naturally a Party that will last until the wee hours of the morning!

Just like the previous year we will be celebrating the Sound, the Look und the Feeling that is The Cure! The music will be provided by out resident Cure experts Wilco, DJ Ørlög as well as a guest DJ.

They will delve deep into the their collections to play not only all the “Hits” but those rarities, b-sides, remixes and little gems that will get you reminising about the past but most importantly get you onto the dance floor.
Naturally, you can expect a limited edition Button for those who arrive early at, A Further Strange Night V - 50 Imaginary Years.

As always you can expect the fashions to be eyepopping and the hair to be perfectly styled!

To quote a long time Cure Party guest, “If you don’t come to these parties, you’re not a true Cure Fan“. The 25th April is clearly a date to cross on your calendar!

Question [28 Jan 2009|08:43pm]

Does anyone know if the song One Hundred Years is based on the book One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I know Robert based Killing An Arab on The Stranger by Camus, just thinking he might have penned One Hundred Years with said book in mind.

cos now they seem to be popping up everywhere! 

personally, for those where its available (i will mark with a *), i recommend copy+pasting the url in your browser and watching it in "high quality".. as it improves the sound vaastly.  sometimes it makes a world of difference! 

lots of vids under cut! Collapse )

HOPEFULLY we can uncross more of these off when they surface... and im trying to think positive thoughts that there are in fact more.
special lj shoutouts go to youtube users "ThatCrazyCureGirl" - "issuesmg" - "sovereignglory" -&- "caterpillargrrl" without whom i could not have made this post and without whom we couldnt imagine just how awesome it was. other people also contributed but these girls (assuming sovereign is a lady) really did their share of footage! THANK YOU!
