entheozen inquired:

do you like hole?

I do! I’ve always enjoyed Hole’s music dating back to 1989. The 2010 album even had a couple of alright tracks that I enjoyed. I don’t look at it as the same Hole. I look at it as a reversed Alice In Chains. Eric is a great lyricists. Courtney’s voice was perfect for the music they had written and created together.

I really miss and favorited Kristen the most. She was one of my favorite bassists from around that time period. I have always had a thing for female bassists. From Juliana Hatfield, Lori Black and Jennifer Finch to Kim Gordon, Kim Deal and especially DD Wretzky. Truly, a beautiful soul that was battling an addiction like many at the time. I mean, the headlines the next day after she was found read: "drugs has claimed another member of Seattle’s well-known Rock scene." Great era of music but we were sadly losing many of those that were making it great and doing nothing about it.

A new mural honoring Nirvana and its place in the histories of the city of Aberdeen and the grunge movement was installed last weekend on the side of a flooring shop.

“The mural is not an apology, it is not fan art, it is not a justification, it is not hero worship, it is not Seattle, It is not about Kurt Cobain alone, though it acknowledges his tragic arc. Rather it memorializes Nirvana as a group — to some extent its present state and mostly references the Harbor here where it all began.”

Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, who remains a Washingtonian, is expected to speak at the Sept. 20 dedication, which will be followed by a street fair. Read More.

Do any of you remember how confused Seattleites were when “grunge” first hit the area? "its called grunge.. i dont know what that means." And now you have these young kids defending “Grunge” based upon Tumblr’s creation of “Soft Grunge/Pastel Grunge” and other nonsense. It’s very laughable.

August 6th, 1993 - Nirvana performs a benefit show at the King Performance Center in Seattle, Washington for The Gits’ Mia Zapata. It would be Nirvana’s last show as a three-piece before adding Pat Smear into the mix.

"We’re always doing benefits, we just played one for Mia Zapata. None of us knew her, but we thought, ‘this is where we live, and this is a terrible thing that happened.’ And it’s the least we can do, to play an hour, give something back to the community." - Krist Novoselic.
