Everyone was having giant ALL CAPS heart attacks about the (flimsy) rumor that RPattz was set to play Kurt Cobain in a Courtney Love approved Nirvana biopic. As far as I have read, the talk is just talk..but that didn't keep it from being a topic of debate last night at Scratcher while Hunter, Kat, Andrew and I got whiskey drunk. I feel sorta Switzerland about it, Hunter thinks it's so terrible it might be fascinating, and Kat was undecided, as she has major RP throbs.
Then we starting talking about the Heart Shaped Box video... I think I have to post it.
I have a theory that my generation has a speciality in darkdarkblack humor & a twisted view of the world precisely because of stuff like this being firmly entrenched in our pop culture history.
You could NEVER make this video today!
I mean...one of the biggest bands in the world at this moment (1993) and their top single's video is a supersaturated dream of white-haired child KKKs, a wizened Santa on the cross, abortion trees and a fat lady in an anatomy suit.
As Hunter was saying...pretty intense shit to watch after school (over and over and over again on MTV).
oh, PS? This video is SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD. Put that in yr wherethefuckdoestimego container.
