Who knows how many brain cells she has left?
Lol at toerag!!! I love it
Long live the Nipples! I still see Davey around all the time.. He's only a few years older than me. He'sa doll. I'm glad I got to experience Satyricon/Fellini early on. Same with La Luna .. Oh the stories!!!
Love this story!
@Jessica absolutely. Another one gone too soon this week. I'm glad someone else remembered.
@Alicia I was coming here to ask if anybody saw that documentary. I have it on dvd and its a very interesting and very honest piece of film.I knew she was a lying toerag. I liked how he just let her talk and talk. People like her were part of the problems he had. Hangers on who sniffed around.Courtney's dad is a horrible human being too. Easy to see what drew them together. She learned to be what she is from that piece of filth.
I was only a kid when he died, just 9, but I had been listening to Nirvana for years thanks to an older family friend who had a Nirvana obsession. I still remember sobbing about it.
He was such a tormented soul, I hope he found some peace one way or another. I'll always cherish his music.
I remember vividly learning about his death. I had to explain it in Spanish since I was in language immersion school.
I went to Pearl Jam that night in Northern Virginia, we were worried that they would cancel, but they didn't.
They closed with "better to burn out than to fade away" song.
You could tell they were devastated but they put on a great show.
@justcurious – I tend to celebrate birthdays rather than death days. I had no idea today was related to anything "celebrity death"wise. But while I celebrate with fervor MLK's birthday every year, I have no idea when Cobain's, Ebert's, or Woods's birthdays are. Not sure it's a "white people thing" so much as a "whose death do you remember?" thing.
Can't view way up here in Canada either..;)Was listening to a radio 'special today about Kurt. Really a tortured soul.. And, nirvana brought me through a dark time at a pivotal age. For that reason alone I still love me some grunge! And always watch Singles if I catch it while flipping channels ::sigh:: Kurt and Layne.. Not a good week for us 90's grunge fans.
I was a 27 year old mother listening to the radio, sitting on the floor and playing with my 18 month old daughter. I remember being stunned when I heard the news because while I loved Nirvana and FINALLY felt like there was music that was "mine", what shocked me was my precious girl wiped my tears and said said clear as day "don't cry momma" then went about her business babbling her indecipherable baby talk.
I hope Kurt, wherever he ended up, found peace from his pain, both physical and emotional. RIP.
you mean A Roid:)
And I am so sorry to everyone for going off topic. I like to discuss sports is all. Apologies again.
Haha, and the Ravens were the underdogs;)Since Bf is a Vikings fan (and holy cow I still haven't heard the last of Ponder being out and replaced by Webb) I need to root for his baseball team. Also, I just plain like them. i LOVED A-Rod's pout when he was sat out last season.
ABlake, got the mlb baseball package. On paper, they're picked for last place (along with the Yanks). Toronto is picked for first. Of course, as my Dad would say, they don't play the game on paper:)
Ablake: your prayers are answered. RexRuther and others have begun an off topic site to address this and other requirements (recipes, pain issues, etc.) It's clicky link is under the blind about Megan Fox today but longhand (and there's instructions there on how to make all things clicky as well! ) is;
I'll put my thinking cap on and add some movies next week. Two do come to mind. "Metro" and "French Twist". Also believe it or not "3 Men And a Baby" the original. Finally "City of Lost Children". 4 different genres. Enjoy!
I think Courtney is responsible for his death.Did she pull the trigger? NopeWas she the emotional trigger? I think yes.
No conspiracy theory, simply speculation.
Poor Kurt,it's sad that he didn't think there was another answer.
Don't forget Layne!
SherryI wish Ent would do a your turn about movies from other countries that people would enjoy, thank you for your input yesterday.Don't worry about JC, every blog seems to have an instigator.
Agent: Red Sox season is coming up. Mark it 🙂
My friends and I went for a long car ride the day he died (a friend's dad drive as we were all pre-teen) and we cried the whole way. Had to turn the radio off to stop hearing the news.
Anna,I didn't see her tear up, Not at all. She did appear somewhat sober.She said she thinks of him on his birthday.
Iz, if Kurt sang that song it would have been even bigger than it was (if that makes sense). I felt the same when I heard Sheryl Crowe sing "Strong Enough". If Stevie Nicks sang it…outta the park.
@JC, you're on an ENTERTAINMENT blog, not a political, cultural, or sociological blog. Cobain, Ebert, Woods – entertainers. MLK – transformer.
"Whitefolks" has nothing to do it.
@ABlake, you won't get any hitting from me… I was a teen around that time and I think Kurt is our generation's equivalent of John Lennon.
@Alicia, Satyricon! I'll always remember them for Sweaty Nipples – they formed the band just so they could get into Satyricon (being underaged). We thought it was funny b/c almost every club in Seattle would take your fake ID and we'd carpool up there, but damn, that was genius.
geez i really wish I could view this :((((I miss the grunge and I miss the music. dont get music like the 90s anymore
I was 13 when he died and I remember "Sassy" magazine asking their readers "What would you write for Kurt Cobain's epitaph?" and one of the winning entries was "Stupid idiot that left his daughter behind". That one got "Sassy" a lot of mail…
@justcurious, you have a point there! A friend of mine recently went to Memphis and said that seeing the Lorraine Motel museum/memorial was a moving experience.
And I know I will be tossed into a pit for saying this but I relate Kurt's voice to Chad of Nickleback.Listen to 'how you remind me' and picture Kurt singing it.
*don't hit me*
I just can't with him.I'm sorry but he hooked up with someone even more screwed up than he was and at the age of 27 I would think you'd outgrow the angst and anger and take responsibility.Especially being a new father.Great choice Kurt, leave Francis to Courtney.Was he talented? Yes. Was he a crybaby? I think so.
I just can't with him. I had tickets to the Pearl Jam show in VA when Eddie learned he shot himself and tossed a fit on the stage. I guess those 2 were friends.
When he was first mainstream popular, I thought he was overrated, but it seems as his music has an ability to deeply touch a certain sadness that everyone seems to be able to relate to, for most, the sadness ebbs away, others are consumed by it. The hopelessness in his voice had a certain charisma.
You need context. Her whole face fell, she teared up, and she admitted that she knew it was this week, but not that it was the very next day.
We must all be around the same age, because I have Jr.high memories of the same. I'm still a fan today.
Cobain is responsible for the death of rock n roll. Rock has never recovered from the vileness that was grunge.
This site would make a great case study for sociology on how whitefolks think. Thursday was the 45th anniversary of the assasination of MLK. This site posted on Roger Ebert's death and pulled a TABLOID article about Natalie Wood's death BUT nothing on King!!!!!
Now Enty/Enity is commemorating the death of a rock star who took his own sorry life!!!!
Whitefolks never cease to amaze.
I always think if he had just hung on a few more months while the 'grunge' fad passed. He could of gone on to have a nice little indie career without all the hot fame lights making him so mainstream to the masses he hated so much.
As everyone always says suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
I was driving down greenlake ave in seattle when the news came on the radio_ wow! 19 yrs! There were TONS of ppl at seattle center and over by his house too, so sad
I loved Kurt Cobain…still do. Rest in peace, Kurt.
Really Agent?! That's crazy that she didn't even know. facepalm
I always thought Kurt Cobain was highly overrated.
I was in the biology greenhouse when I heard about his death. It was pretty devastating. I've made the trek to his house. He was the proverbial tortured artist – like most of the artists we truly love, and they don't last long on this plane, but they sure make a hell of an impact.
For me, hearing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was like hearing real music after almost a couple decades of a real serious rock dry spell. That album, and "Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic" got me through bootcamp.
Well, Kurt had A LOT to do w/ Holes most successful album Live Through This…so I think that says it all. I am a huge fan of both Nirvana & Hole, but I also acknowledge the fact that if not for Kurt & later Billy Corgan their best music would not exist. R.I.P Kurt, u are missed always.
I'm a Gen Xer who owned NEVERMIND but never really thought KC was a genius. Still don't. I liked Hole WAY better. Does that make me weird? (You know, not counting everything ELSE that makes me weird?!)
