Not to vent on how lame and old I am, but Nirvana was in their prime around my sophomore and junior year of High School. I clearly remember about a quarter of the boys in my school being obsessed with bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and with that whole grunge movement. I swear, no one in my class got a haircut for like 3 years. To this day my wife and I talk about Kurt Cobain and ponder what sort of music he'd be making and what sort of collaborations he'd be getting involved with if he were still alive today. And while it's painful to think about how much brilliant music we missed in all the years since Cobain's death, it's still nice to hold onto what we do have and cherish it; celebrate it.
By now you've probably heard of the upcoming Cobain biopic that Oren Moverman (The Messenger) is in talks to re-write and direct, based partially on Charles R. Cross' Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain. Since The Messenger (co-written by Moverman) features a brilliant script, I have faith that this biopic will turn out great so long as they get the right person to play Cobain. In my opinion, there's only one actor alive today who should be playing Cobain: Ben Foster. And since Moverman and Foster already have that connection from The Messenger, I'm real hopeful he'll at least be considered.
