Do you think it'd be okay for a freshman to lose her virginity to a sophomore?

??????   that depends on each person.

wouldn’t presume to even say.

"smells like teen spirit"  sock puppet parody.

The Nirvana exhibit was….a little bit disappointing, really, because for one thing everything was behind glass that was glaringly lit and there was this BAD soundtrack (the intro board said something like “I composed a deconstruction of the familiar two-tone riff leading into ‘About a Girl’ for ambient noise” whatever and it was just about as bad as you would expect from that. The contrast between that and the horror exhibit soundtrack, which was perfect and genuinely unnerving, was striking). There wasn’t much written about the artifacts on display because now everything’s on those audio museum guide tracks, which I detest, mostly because I like talking about what we’re looking at together with T. I also just understand information much better when I can read it, not when it’s being poorly read to me. There were also three or four crappy short films running everywhere through the exhibit that were mostly self-aggrandizing “OMG Sub Pop was so DIY and Seattle was this tiny isolated backwater” (I swear, they used the fucking word backwater, which is what, any place that isn’t New York, I guess?) bullshit. (True to form, except for one or two absolutely perfunctory mentions, the riot grrl movement — which influenced Cobain SO MUCH — was completely absent. Way to go, EMP!) (It also well impressed upon me how completely impossible it is for anyone over 30 to communicate now to the Young Folks how isolated people were in semi-rural areas before the internet. The Seattle scene had whatever purity it did, for fifteen minutes before all the vultures descended, because nobody had any fucking money to go anywhere else. There were pictures of handwritten notes from Calvin Johnson asking people for copies of demos he’d seen advertised in their zines. The “Nirvana fan club newsletter” was printed out by Cobain and then xeroxed, it looked like.)
But there were so many photographs, and they all looked so heartbreakingly young — there was a snapshot of Novoselic’s 23rd birthday-on-the-road cake, for God’s sake — and original Maxell demo tapes with handwritten phone numbers on the label, and four or five smashed guitars. Even Cobain’s guitars that were still intact were totally trashed. (You could see these GIANT dents in Grohl’s drum kit.) Kurt drawing in art class in 1983, Kurt’s artwork riffing on “American Gothic” and Reagan, the original amp cases from the In Utero tour, the ugly green shirt Kurt wore in the “Teenage Spirit” video, — you looked at it and it just made you think of his body inside it, the way the pieces of wood made you think of his hands, the muscles in his arms, his anger as he destroyed what he’d just made art with. They were just these wood shards, unplayable, not recognizable as musical instruments anymore, the damage carefully preserved.
And then I saw the Unplugged setlist and my heart just stopped. I didn’t cry, and the atmosphere was way too hushed and fake-reverential and glossy-slick for me, but, damn. Relics are still pretty fucking powerful, even in Paul Allen’s corporate temple.

they WERE very young.

Everyone thinks of me as this sad little spineless puppy who needs to be taken care of. It sickens me.” -Kurt Cobain

Well…I think it’s kind of in human nature. When you see something scary, you’ll run away and when you see something adorable, you would like to pamper and nurture it. Of course the person’s behavior also affects alonside the appearance. If only we could see ourselves like others do…

it makes me mad when people talk about Rape Me" like its promoting rape!! (or something like that, I don't know what people are thinking). I mean yeah, judging by the title it does sound controversial.. but Kurt said himself it's an anti-rape song! and the song represents karma in a way, right? Kurt was totally against rape.. wish people would understand

well….don’t hold your breath on that one.

kurt was a great guy, who was a feminist, totally for gay rights, and very much againest rape.

but if you ask most people, he’s that singer who was a junkie, and blew his head off.

most discouraging……..

approximately how long do you have to take antidepressants before they start to really take affect ?

you should give the meds at least 6 weeks to “kick in”.

they didn’t keep me on the the one that hyped me up for that length…

they changed it quickly…but to really notice a change …6 weeks.
