"I smoke Benson & Hedge’s Deluxe Ultra-Light Menthols. It tastes good, and it fools me into thinking that I’m smoking less. Or taking more vitamins, or something. And my breath smells good." - Kurt Cobain.

maryberryjane inquired:

I was wondering if you have any evidence as to if Kurt really said this quote: "they laughed at me because I was different, I laughed at them because they were all the same." This quote really hits home, and is a possible tattoo idea, but I don't want to give false credit. I hope he did say considering it would be something he would say, and he's a huge part of my life. Any help?

Well, that’s an interesting quote that was never said by Kurt Cobain. As far as I know, from the research I have done within video/audio interviews or writings of his. I actually have no idea how he got involved with the quote, it must have happened sometime within the last ten years. I’ve not discovered the source. It’s one of many quotes that people just throw out there attached to a celebrity without knowing its history. I believe Lady Gaga has been quoted with it and Jonathan Davis of Korn.

Anonymous inquired:

i just listened to that demo of come as you are on your blog. what is that from??

The recording of ‘Nevermind’ in 1991. It’s an alternate vocal mix. Different vocals, much more scratchy and raw because Kurt recorded “Lithium” before “Come As You Are” and messed his voice up which is why it sounds so terrible. I think some of the guitar and bass and drums were finished, he was just giving the song another run with the vocals. The guys recorded a lot of different takes in the studio than what is finalized for the actual album. Some are thrown to the side and others are mixed in for the album release.


What do you know about unreleased Kurt demo's like doremi? I read somewhere that there is another version of doremi with Kurt on drums and pat on guitar. Will we ever hear those songs or are they lost to eternity?

Kurt recorded a lot of material. From actual songs like ‘Old Age’, ‘Do Re Mi’ and ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ to collages like his 30 minute piece, ‘Montage of Heck.’ We found out about Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain’s collab with ‘Stinking Of You’ ten years ago and just recently finally heard the track. When will the material be released? Who knows. Possibly sooner than later now with the friendship the three (four counting Frances) have within Nirvana and Kurt Cobain’s estate. I would say a good 100+ recorded material still exists. Also, this isn’t counting the numerous studio demos and or practice sessions or live material that can be released. A lot of unheard/unreleased content still out there.
