Robert Forster, a prolific character actor who was nominated for an Oscar for Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown” and appeared in more than 100 films, died Friday in Los Angeles of brain cancer. He was 78.

Tarantino created the bail bondsman character Max Cherry with Forster in mind, and the role netted him his first Academy Award nomination.

Most recently Forster reprised his “Breaking Bad” role as Ed in “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” which was released Friday, and appeared in Steven Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories” and in “Werewolf.”

David Lynch cast the actor with a distinctive weathered look in “Mulholland Dr.” and in the rebooted “Twin Peaks” as Sheriff Frank Truman.

Isn't it great to go out and see a young band punkrockin' their shoes off? Well quite literally, as the first thing the singer of "Hands Off Gretel" did last night when she came on stage, was taking her shoes off (and she wore 2 different socks!)... The bass player, on the other hand, had nice boots on!  8)
Hadn't been to "Club Bastion" in Kirchheim/Teck for a while, I was way too early and it took a while until the band started.

First there was a house announcer, who wanted to make a short speech - well it was longer than anticipated, but at least he had the good news that The Dickies will return to the "Bastion" next year (I saw them here twice and once in a pub nearby).

The club is in an old tower/fortress and I was upstairs on the "balcony", good for taking photos. The band rocked it well, the songs are good (a bit "generic" of course), the singer has charisma and the players are good (especially Becky Baldwin on bass)! https://www.beckybaldwinbass.com/

“I think I’ve gotten to a place where I can move between different styles of music very easily, and I’ve got a band of around me who can do the same,” says Scott by phone from his hotel room in Philadelphia, his light Scottish accent testimony to his hometown of Edinburgh. “So it feels natural to work with different styles.

“And I also think that they all sound like the Waterboys anyway,” says Scott, who with the Waterboys will play shows in Santa Ana on Sunday, Oct. 13 and Los Angeles on Tuesday, Oct. 15. “There are certain constants like my voice, the way I play guitar and piano. The way that some of the people I’ve worked with — Steve (Wickham) on his fiddle or Brother Paul and his keys — play and sound.”

The Waterboys’ new album arrived at the end of May, two years after the 2017 double album “Out Of All This Blue,” a fertile period of music-making for Scott that he attributes in part to his role as father to a 6-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son.

“I have two young children and since that I kind of learned how to work much faster,” Scott says. “And also, because I’m always telling them stories and making up songs for them, it means that the wheels of my creativity are constantly running. It’s a very small jump from making up a song about a cartoon character for my daughter to writing a regular song for the Waterboys.

“So I find it very easy to be creative now,” he says. “I’m switched on all the time and whenever I get to my studio, which is every day for a few hours at least, there’s always something happening.”

“I think since I wrote my book (the 2012 memoir “Adventures of a Waterboy”) I’ve got a very peaceful relationship with my own history,” Scott says. “And I like looking back at those times and trying to capture their flavor in a song.” ...

“I’ve never believed that God or spirituality was an angry guy hurlin’ thunderbolts and judging everything that I did,” he says. “I spent decades trying to escape from those illusions or those human delusions. To me, spirituality is an experience of lovingness and of self-acceptance, and in that encounter in ‘Piper At The Gates Of Dawn,’ those two good creatures meet their God, and they are loved. Very beautiful indeed.”
