And 10 years just shot by

With Kurt Cobain's 10th death anniv just around the corner (April 8, according to this FAQ), I've been wondering how the rest of Nirvana have been. Things I read:

- Ex-bassist Krist Novoselic's been into politics after a few not-so-great turns with his post-Nirvana projects. He got married (last February?) to 41-year-old artist Darbury Ayn Stenderu.
- Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl also got married last year to Foo documentarian Jordyn Blum. Check out these hilarious outbursts from his female fans upon hearing the news.

So what brought this about? While waiting for ABS-CBN's Pipol to come on last week (We were set to watch a feature on our family friends Tita Penny, a leading doctor in Bontoc, and her daughter Gwen, who's graduating cum laude this year in UP, yay!) we watched RPN 9's super late broadcast of the 2003 Billboard awards and caught Dave Grohl and Triumph the Insult comic dog ripping everyone to shreds from the podium. It was hilarious.

And Kurt and Courtney's daughter Frances Bean? Well, from these photos (here and here), she has her mom's brown hair and long chin, and her dad's lips and eyes. Lovely 12-year-old kid.

BTW, I saw that book quiz couple months back and was just gagging at my results. Anne of Green Gables?! Huck Finn?! Fuck! Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle? Anyway I finally saw something that made sense, though I've never read the book. This Amazon review's pretty good, though: "With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the idea that people might freely choose to give up their humanity in order to create a more stable society. Gradually Jonas [the 12-year-old main character] learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he cannot pay the price."

You're The Giver!
by Lois Lowry
While you grew up with a sheltered childhood, you're pretty sure everyone around you is even more sheltered. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, you were tapped on the shoulder and transported to the real world. This made you horrified by your prior upbringing and now you're tormented by how to reconcile these two lives. Ultimately, the struggle comes down to that old free will issue. Choose wisely.
Take the Book Quiz.

Have a good week, y'all. ;)

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
