I guess that there's new In Utero footage (with a young Steve behind the mixing boards) during Courtney Love's Behind the Music thing.

Thought some of you might be interested. It's on tomorrow at 2:30 ET if you want to Tivo it. I'm putting this in the Nirvana thread as well.

I actually just found the footage. Never mind, the footage is there, but it's not worth Tivo-ing or sitting through Courtney Love talking.

I really just wanted my 5000th post to be in the Courtney Love thread.

Here's a picture of some baby possums

I've moved out of the opossum house and moved into a raccoon house. Pictures and new thred due soon. I have a pear tree that grows next to my house, and the raccoon sleeps in a bed of leaves he's made in a crook of limbs just outside my second story bathroom window. Trying to get pictures of him sleeping on his back with his head hanging out of the nest, feets in the air.

Courtney Love* and Ryan Adams were both fans of The Replacements.

The self-pitying candour and loserful romance of Westerberg's work has been one of the worst influences to come from the 1980s.

I had a friend in college who listed Hole as one of her favorite bands and used to argue that Courtney Love's crazy was no more egregious than many male rock stars', and that Love just got extra scrutiny and flack for being conspicuously obnoxious while female. This friend, btw, had the most heterodox musical tastes of anyone I've ever known. She hated "riot grrl" (so "bratty"... "no wonder Courtney punched that chick")... so no gender tribe allegiances there.

Mind you this was 1995 or something, and there were copious instances of crazy yet to come.

Still not sure if she's right... that the media goes panting after Courtney's every wrong move while paying less attention to male rock star transgressions.

I do know she's still a fan.

Of all the toughest jobs in the world, one of the worst I can imagine would be the poor attendant working at a suicide hotline if/when C-Lo calls. This attendant doesn't know her personally, so if C says she's burned every possible bridge there is to burn and has nothing to hope for, what would the attendant try to latch onto? It's easy to be a completely detached rock fan and say, "C's past the point of no return. Her future is fucked. Getting out of bed is a waste of effort." However, if you had to actually take the call, your sense of humanity would have to kick in at some point.

I could see an attendant trying to talk her into giving herself a sense of purpose via charity work, but that's iffy. She could be broke, and I don't see her having the stamina to work at a soup kitchen.

As you say, this is a horrible thought. I read it, and I thought about it. I'd imagine that it actually sucks quite badly to BE Courtney Love, based on what I have heard of her behavior, so I would urge her to make an effort to live a calmer life, and to find some peace with herself and other people.

I would have a hard time not specifying that she needs to get the hell out of music as a career or pastime, and work at some kind of low-stress, low-visibility job for several years.

It is. That's one of the most twisted, selfish parental moves I've ever encountered. Using your daughter's 16th birthday as an occasion to fake-mock your own hang-ups. Beyond bullshit. Criminal.

Incidentally, Courtney is biologically descended from crap mothers. Her own mother was given up for adoption by Paula Fox, who is a fantastic writer and decent human being but the offspring of a total monster.

This breaks my heart. "I'm getting the wire hangers out".

Ok Courtney: FUCK YOU.

As for Hole: boring 90s Top 40 alt-rock festival music. “Miss World” evokes memories of boneheads indiscriminately moshing under Coors Lite banners at the HFStival. No thanks.

Sidenote: WHFS is now a norteña station. Poetic justice.

Yup. I don't know about you, but that one time I attended the HFStival inoculated me against bloated, big-ticket summer fests forever and always. Giant chain-link fences. Fascist security thugs. Dirty thirsty people unable to afford the $5 bottles of water you were forced to buy. Idiots moshing to the Cranberries.

It was like I'd volunteered to spend a day in a concentration camp for suburban assholes. Or hell.
