This Is Entertaining Us?

Kurt Cobain-themed Converse sneakers, illustrated with snippets of his journals.

Last week, because I got sick of hitting ‘skip’ when my iPod was set to shuffle, I erased every last Nirvana song from my iTunes. I was a big fan, back in the day, and I knew every note of every song. That’s why I can’t listen to it anymore; it’s not entertaining, it’s not enlightening. There’s nothing new that I can scavenge from it. Less than a week later, here are these shoes. This seems like a sign that I did the right thing.

good lord, if anything should make one roll over in his grave it's seeing a suicidal junkie's journal entries printed on fucking sneakers. I could really give a shit about Nirvana and Curt at this point. But that's ridiculous...

The shoes are lame, indeed. And so are you for deleting Nirvana songs from your iPod.

Stick to books.

honestly, do you expect people to applaud your deleting of nirvana's discography because you are burned out on it? i understand the sentiment, but that's personal, dude.

or maybe you are just trying to rile fools. you CAN'T be bragging that you've spent that much time with every nirvana track, because so has everyone else.

you are trying to rile fools.

don't mudede me, constant.

Translation: I used liked Nirvana, but I'm just too cool for that now.

They really need to start hiring writers at the Stranger who're past the age of twelve.

Well hopefully this act will buttress and reinforce the flimsy barricade between your precious self image as the most special little snowflake in all of specialtown and the rest of humanity and all its weary commonness.

I wonder what Courtney's idea of a "tasteless cashgrab" is? Shoes with that picture of Kurt's body? What won't she do for money? I mean, other than prove she can write and sing great songs without "collaborators"?

Nirvana's relevancy has come and gone. I'm sorry, but aside from Kurt's emotion, there is not much redeemable value in their music anymore. Aside from the unplugged album, I just can't see listening to them anymore. I've heard enough "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "In Bloom" on the radio every single day to have my fill in life.
