The Cure – A Forest
For Throwback Thursday I went digging in one of my plastic bins for some old treasures. There was my banana sticker collection, lots of mail, newspaper clippings, magazines and fanzines, a few handmade toys, two railroad spikes, a bottle with some dirt, and concert tickets.
This was for the Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me tour, though I was more of a fan of their earlier stuff. There was a young woman in my office a few years ago who had discovered The Cure based on that album and thought it was great. I thought that was not a very accurate reflection of the band I knew. I liked it well enough but it felt weird for them to be almost mainstream.
In looking for a video I discovered that Rhino has put up all the old original Cure videos that you used to see if you waited up past midnight on a Sunday to see 120 Minutes on MTV. There’s the creepy video from Charlotte Sometimes! The goofy Love Cats video! There’s quite a few of them. It’s fun to see the different Robert Smith hair and makeup phases over the years.
That’s a treasure! $14.50 a ticket is incredible. Now I want to hear about the bottle of dirt.
Today $14.50 would just cover the “handling fee” despite the fact that no hands ever touch anything.
The bottle of dirt. The easy answer is I wanted to have something of a place to take home with me. I might get to the rest of it one day but that’s a hard one to sum up!
