Tribute to Cobain Is In Bloom

Geoff Trainor

Director Gus Van Sant is imagining the final hours of what many consider to be the end of the grunge movement. Last Days follows a tormented Blake (Michael Pitt), as he hides from record execs, management, and friends, leading up to his eventually death. Although the movie does not name Cobain, Blake a Co. share a striking resemblance with Kurt and the rest of Nirvana.

Van Sant has said that this movie is not about Kurt, but in tribute to him, "He's like a Shakespearean Hamlet, reflecting on his personal ghosts and demons".

Also to avoid any disagreements with fans, Van Sant was sure to stay clear of drawing any conclusions as to what exactly happened on April 5th, 1994. The movie has received the blessing of Courtney Love.

Casey...I like your blog. Very witty and creative and I might even check out a few bands you recommend (The Like Young). Also thanks for reminding me of The Guess Who and Elvis Costello.

I posted a reply to your post on my blog...make sense?

Lastly, I am sad for Ozzy. Back in my day Sabbath was just starting out.

Louboutin Shoes
are also designed higher and higher, finer and finer. A pair of Christian Louboutin Pumps
is an indispensable luxury in some occasions. The heel top of Christian Louboutin Boots
armadillo striped satin shoes is wide. These Christian Louboutin Sandals
peep toe pup became very popular.
