Ohkay.....I'm game.

1. I really can't define exactly why or how I became a Nicfan. Something just spoke to me when I saw the movie CITY OF ANGELS and from there on out.....I simply felt 'called'.

2. Last film I saw at a movie theater? Sorcerer's Apprentice, of course!

3. OMGoodness......there isn't just one. First up, the Bible, then.....Animal Speaks (I'm studying up on wolves), Codependant No More, Loving Yourself Unconditionally, and a recipe book on Crock Pot cooking.

4. While I am many colors, the colors I am most often are Periwinkle and Sunshine Yellow. At least I strive to be them....serene and friendly, full of a sort of happy bliss.

5. I've always thought it would be amazing to be a Bird of Prey, perhaps a falcon. If not that....a Big cat......a lioness....proud and protective.

6. Even tho it's not always easy, I try to remind myself that my glass is half FULL.  I remind myself this out of choice. It's all a matter of perception really. We are what we think. I choose to be optimistic.

7. A complicated man of many talents, moods and personas.

8. I would go where my heart leads me.

9. All of it interests me. It's a place meant for the enjoyment of many and to celebrate a fine actor.

10. Just that I hope this place can be a place where Nicfans gather together in commonality of Nic. He deserves a strong fanbase. I'd like to see that here.

I think you have Nic down to a tee...flowerface

1. I saw Raising Arizona shortly followed by Wild At Heart. Nic's work rescued me from an existential crisis. As a child I escaped the world through books, always blissfully away in some other world. It seemed natural to go on to study literature at uni... Wrong! I could no longer lose myself in books ..It totally ruined my life *said in Cher Moonstruck voice*! Then I discovered film. nic's in particular. Have been a fan from then on!

2. I am in such a Valley Girl phase. For sure. Like totally. Watched it again last might for about the fifth time this fortnight.

3. Always near: 'Hands of light' Barbara Brennan, 'Reiki essential healing art' Diane Stein, 'Crystal bible' Judy Hall.
Currently, Deepak Chopra 'Reinventing the body, Resurrecting the Soul.' Phillip Pullman 'Northern Lights'
Favourite reading at the mo is my daily Rumi poem, from 'A year of Rumi' course i'm doing.lotus

4. I know what colours I like.. purples, plums, maroons, magenta, silvers and golds. But I have no idea what 'my colours' are!darkness showed me the way to the light so maybe I'm a rainbow ... Just like you. rainbowsmiley

5. Oh ..if I am to reincarnate again I would like to be a phoenix rising from the ashes! Or I would like it to be a strong tribal animal. Maybe an elephant! But it will probably be a blue butterfly!flowerface

6. sun.gifEmpty glass sun filled
Infinite pure reflection
Endless inner light sun.gif

7. Sensitive but bold Creative genius with depth and kaleidoscopic range

8. I'd like to try another world or another universe! But..everywhere is beautiful through grateful eyes.

9. All of it! Particularly excited by the creative chamber though... love the idea of original Nic fan fics ( though have never written any..maybe one day! ) poetry and art!

10. Apart from My Cagiac tendencies I have many other passions... I'm a Reiki master/ healer and have been on a pretty intense spiritual journey most of my life. 10 years ago my life as i knew it was hijacked due to illness, but it was the biggest gift because it reawakened me to some deeper truths I had forgotten. Now it's very much being in each moment fully, whatever life brings.



I have no idea where Cagealot Castle came from..it arose from within through the mists and there it was on Twitter! lotus A celebration of the magic Nic brings to the world. And I hope this place can be a homage to the magnificant actor he is. I hope you all can feel that magic here and all are welcome! thank you for all you bring!

Have a Nicalicious day!

Love and peace multicolourlove

Hey Lula!

Love the answers and the list of books on your bedside table, especially the one about Rumi.  I didn't know there was a course you could take on Rumi.  Sounds wonderful.  A few weeks back I went thru my bookshelves and found four books on Rumi.......We've got that in common.

Oh and girl....the question was....WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE.......not what color do you like!    I love the colors you chose by the way.........I find them totally sensuous colors....deep and mysterious.

So what color would YOU be?

1. Well... this is a long story. When I was only 7 I happen to watch Face/Off trailer and fell in love with "the thinner guy" at once!chortle (later I knew he was Nic Cage) But u know, the attention of little kids can't last too long; also it's because I'm not an English native speaker, so it was not possible for me to concentrate on the news about him...ashamed Then 10 years past. One day, lots of my classmates were talking about NT2 and many planned to see it. I was wondering why a movie could arouse such high interest, so I checked the info about it. When I realized the leading star was Nic, my distant feeling came back and I decided to see it. What happened then? Well, as you know, here I am, formerly known as Gerfalcon! Nice to meet you Nic-lovers again! smile X

2. Last week, just saw Lord of War for the first time! :)

3. The Norton Anthology- English Literature Ed.8 Vol.1

4. Ocean blue for sure! biggrin

5. I want to be a MOLE... LOLOLOLOLOL!!

6. Depends...confuse

7. The first star and the ever-lasting sun in my sky! heart.gif

8. (physically) around the world (esp. Germany & the US!)
    (mentally) Like Bon's opinion, wherever my heart leads! :)

9. ALL!!joy

10. A lefty chocoholic soccer lover who studies literature!starsmile

First of all, I want to thank you guys for creating such a wonderful wonderful castle for all the Nicaholic people :D multicolourlovemulticolourlove.

And here is my answers :D

1. When I was about 4 I guess, my big sister was watching Face/Off while I was doing kid stuff. Then she told me: "Kid, look!" I looked at the TV and the faceless Castor Troy showed up. And that how I met Nic for the first time aww.

Years later, when Ghost Rider DVD came out. My sister bought it and told me: "This guy is really hot (not sure what kind of 'hot' she meant chortle)". And surely he was chortle. Then I started to investigate Nic and turned out he was one of my nightmares! But then he soon became man of my dreams XD.

2. I watched Burn After Reading yesterday, had fun :D. And the last Nic film I watched was The Sorcerer's Apprentice ;)

3. Eh, philology textbook confuse

4. Blue :), it's my favorite :D

5. I can't see 'human being' D:. Just kidding XD, I'm thinking of a Saint Bernard :D.

6. Now it's half full :D, but who knows what's gonna happen? spaceship

7. Weird-on-top at first, then comes a non-stop passion.
How about that :D?

8. Anywhere :D. But it would be great if Nic were there too XD

9. Everything :D

10. Hey there, T.Z./Caz is here :D.

Yay! So awesome to see you, our very own Space knight! This emoticon is for you! starsmilespaceshipstarsmile

I'm really so glad you found your way here and you are very welcome, this space has been created for all Nic fans and it wouldn't be the same without you, and our Eirian!sun.gif

Lol, love your sense of humour! number 5 made me totally rolllaugh

Wow you all keep topping the last 'describe nic in ten words'! love your one for obvious reasons Tz.. being the fan of Wild At Heart I am!'

And St Bernards are adorable...I would love it to be you rescuing me in the snow!

Welcome to Cagealot Castle Space Knight, let's make this Castle *out of this world*spaceship

WOOP!  WOOP!  WOOP!  WOOPIE!

Can you guys hear my woops from where you are?   I am soooooooooooo happy you found this place and that the family of Nic is coming together again!   I love the screen names btw and the introductions of themselves that everyone is posting. 

It's sorta like when teachers would ask the students to stand up and tell the classroom something about themselves in order for other students to go....."hey...I can relate...maybe we can be friends"......LOL!    

Ya know....just because our old home seems like it could disappear into a cloud of dust, doesn't mean that all the loyal fans of Nic's have to disappear with it, right?  We may not have all the years of content that the old homestead has but then again....neither did CF when it first got started! 

It's the fan's and their contributions that make a fan forum a HOME and that's what we have here, right?   A new home brimming with possibilites and good will!

Oh....it is so good to see peeps we've known all these years..............

Can you tell I'm a happy camper???   I think I'm gushing......LOL!

Lots of love to all, B

Thanks Lula & Bon, and so NICe to see you here Caz! It's true that real Nicaholics should be with one another whatever the place may be. Glad we gather together again!grouphug

Hey Lula, of course I'd like to be THAT kind of mole... with the name Speckies (feminine form of Speckles...biggrin)! And wow, how cute you'd be as a St. Bernard Caz! Could we team up as another amazing (also adorable) animal group, pretty please? LOL!

Guess my description of Nic could be so poetic thanks to my major in college... I benefit a lot from various literary works!smile

Sure I'll jump in at any time, for I really love the atmosphere here with you guys!multicolourlove

I thought I'd take part too and here are my answers

1.Something special happened when I saw Bringing out the dead,I simply couldn't help falling into the abyss of dark charm of this gorgeous blue eyed man.And ever since that I've been a Nicaholic without any hope to be cured

2.The Sorcerer's Apprentice!

3.Bram Stocker's Dracula, 'Sorrows of young Werther' by Johann Goethe

4.Probably the colour that is embodying wisdom in my opinion,purplepurplestar

5.I'd love to reincarnate as a bird to feel the wind blowing in my face(or whatever it would be,LOL) when I'm soaring above the Earth

6.I would say my glass is half empty. As Nic once said: "I don't really look at myself as a successful person. I always look at myself as someone who's trying to find the next place to go or the next thing to discover or improve upon. I have a difficult time looking at the cup half full. I always tend to look at it half empty."
 This is exactly the way I feel about it

7. A wise gorgeous genius, equally beautiful inside and out.

8.New Orleans,for some obvious reasons

9.All of it

10.I'm glad there's a place where Nicaholics can get what they want,a daily dose of Nic

Hi voodoo child, I can see how Bringing out The Dead would capture a person into Nic's hypnotic acting! It's an amazing performance and incredibly underrated film.reel

Mmm..I love purple. Nic described himself as purple once.. A combination of blue and red.

I love your 10 word Nic description, we should put them altogether, they world make an impressive and creative read!flowerface

Thanks for sharing and here's to many days of being completely NICked out! loveeyes

1. What makes you a fan of Nicolas Cage?

How can I not be - ever since I saw Raising Arizona I have been a fan, but I became the fanatic that I am now after viewing Con Air for the umpteenth time and feeling mesmerized by his eyes and the beauty of his emotion.


2. What was the last film you saw?

The Sorcerer's Apprentice.


3. Which book would we find on your bedside table right now?

Lots, I am always dipping into something - trying John Irving right now.


4. If you were a colour what would it be?

Green - the colour of life


5. If you were to come back as a bird, animal or mammal in your next life which would it be?

A human, so I can experience all the wonders of this world again.


6. Generally speaking, is your glass half empty, or half full?

Almost always half full!!


7. How would you describe Nicolas in 10 words or less?

A dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hope-er, a pray-er


8. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Great Britain, to visit the places my forebears came from and because I have dreamed of going there since I was a child.


9. Which part of Cagealot Castle interests you the most?

All of it,  but maybe The Great Hall the most, for general discussion.
