Hope You've Reached:

To the angst-y White boy...hope you're fucking happy now.
Thank you for saving the by then dying art of guitar music.

Today marks 13 years since the death of that 90s icon. Why I remember this I have no idea. I was pretty upset though back in the day. His death was relinquished to the back burners of SA media, because the 1994 elections were apparently far more important :P.

I only found out on the 19th April 1994. I drew one of those dopey Nirvana smilies for art class that week, got kicked out together with Sharon Naidoo and Divendren Reddy, who did the same. I was in Standard 3 (Grade 5). My first trouble with the law I suppose. Kurt made me do it.

PS: To the thing, who not only killed you, but who was ALSO SO manly that she turned Mike Stipe gay...

Aah, I suppose there are far less worthy causes than the love Kurt Cobain to look back on as that which signified our descent into petty anarchy. Long live the 90's.

RIP Kurt. Smells like teen spirit ushered in rock for me, just like Nirvana ushered in post-grunge, my favorite genre

why, oh why do people insist on blaming courtney for this?!
sure, cobain was talented and left us some great music. and sure, nirvana were on the precipice of something truly great (just watch their mtv unplugged session if you don't believe that) when he offed himself, but the truth is this: cobain killed cobain. and for that, he is a loser in my books. really, people...
