Music Week: Music Monday.

Nirvana: Sliver.

In owed to what would have been Kurt Cobains 45th birthday, which is today, i thought id post my favorite Nirvana Song. Sliver is my personal favorite. Its quirky, simple, and the lyrics paint a picture in your head. Plus the video is great. His daughter is in the video. Kurt cut holes into a cardboard background so he could put his hands through the cardboard, move around his daughter, and make it look like she was dancing.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of him too.

"I like punk rock. I like girls with weird eyes. I like drugs. I like passion. I like things that are built well. I like innocence. I like and am grateful for the blue collar worker whose existence allows artists to not have to work at menial jobs. I like killing gluttony. I like playing my cards wrong. I like various styles of music. I like making fun of musicians whom I feel plagiarize or offend music as art by exploiting their embarrassingly pathetic versions of their work. I like to write poetry. I like to ignore others' poetry. I like vinyl. I like nature and animals. I like to be by myself. I like to feel guilty for being a white, American male."

-Kurt Cobain.
