Scratch Acid - Owner’s Lament (found on Kurt Cobain: About a Son.)
’Crossfire Hurricane’ director reveals first details of Kurt Cobain film:
Brett Morgen, who directed The Rolling Stones film Crossfire Hurricane, has given an outline of the Kurt Cobain film he’s been working on for the past five years.
Speaking to NME, Morgen said that just as the tone of Crossfire Hurricane had been dictated by its subject, the as-yet-untitled film about the Nirvana frontman would too be an embodiment of his character.
Morgen said: “If you think about Kurt, he’s a contradiction. He could be sincere and sentimental, and also ironic and sarcastic. He was sweet and sour. He was incredibly funny too, and the film has to reflect his sprit. The thing about him people might not know too is that he was an incredible visual artist and left behind a treasure chest of comic books, paintings, Super8 films, all sorts.”

While Nirvana fans are still celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Nevermind,” yet another artist is covering the album’s biggest hit — and it’s not who you might expect.
NME reports The Muppets will be performing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on the soundtrack of their upcoming film, “The Muppets,” due in theaters this Thanksgiving. More specifically, it’ll be the Muppets Barbershop Quartet covering the grunge anthem, with former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl filling in for Animal on the drums. (According to the film’s plot, Animal will be away in anger management.)
“It’s so powerful, such a human moment and it is what happens outside the glare of the spotlight, the fact that it’s on film is amazing and so poignant.” - Cameron Crowe.
“It was incredibly emotional, just ‘cause he’s smiling… and you wish he just could have pulled through.” - Eddie Vedder.

Pearl Jam “Twenty” Trailer:
After the flop that was 2005’s “Elizabethtown,” Cameron Crowe comes back with a vengeance in 2011. He’s got three films in the can all coming out at various times this year, his Oscar hopeful, “We Bought A Zoo,” his Elton John doc, “The Union,” which chronicles John and Leon Russell‘s collaborative album which premiered at Tribeca earlier this year and finally, his “Pearl Jam Twenty,” documentary which was announced as part of the Toronto International Film Festival this morning.
Something special to note. Crowe lets loose a few details like the documentary will feature footage of Neil Young, Soundgarden‘s Chris Cornell and even footage of Kurt Cobain, presumably discussing Pearl Jam.
