Check it yourself
Check it yourself
April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
— T.S. Eliot, The Wasteland, section 1, lines 1-4
Kurt Cobain (February 20, 1967 – c. April 5, 1994)

One is of Kurt and his daughter playing in a kiddie pool, the other features him posing for the camera while wearing a Breeders t-shirt. “I hope they don’t have the internet wherever you are. I feel like that would be counterproductive,” Frances captioned her photo. “Regardless, Happy Birthday to an angel.”
Kurt’s wife, Courtney Love, also honored her husband. “happy birthday baby god I miss you,” she wrote beneath a photo of the two together.
Cobain’s one-time rival, Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan, and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong also paid tribute.
It would be rather awkward to wish happy birthday to the person who died by suicide but I just want to say that Kurt would be 51 today.

Happy New Year! I hope 2018 will be better than the previous one and will bring us much more joy. I was overwhelmed by all the sad events that happened in 2017 and was seriously thinking of quitting this blog but now I am more than sure that I should continue no matter what.
So I am eventually planning to prepare the place for Chris Cornell and to post more or less regularly in 2018. Don’t expect the flood of new content but I think one new post a week is a reasonable goal.
Let’s start this year with one of the uplifting events that took place last year. See yourselves what happens when 1200 people gather to play Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit 😀 Read the coverage of this concert here and listen to their cover below. I just wish Kurt could see this! ❤
