You basically have to have just written SD in order to pull off that jacket

God I remember wanting that coat so bad

Any of you younger folk out there have to remember, there was a time where it was not only okay but actually encouraged to dress as though you'd fallen through both your parents' closets

And we didn't call it "normcore" or whatever you crazy kids are calling it these days; we just called it being alive

Just boring people call it being a "hipster"

Or perhaps its tied around his waist on top of an equally bemusing coat

With an ascot to aid connection more likely

billco wearing one of kurd's coats at the dress rehearsal for the 1994 vmas. michael azerrad's piece for spin is the most passive aggressive/outright negative "Artist of the Year" article i've ever read. he portrays billco as a phony and uncool careerist egomaniac with no indie principles who clearly wants the title that kurd just gave up. billco said elsewhere that he had the coat because he was "cold" and asked courtney for a jacket, which begs the questions- was it an intentional set-up by to embarrass billco ? ....

Couldn't find a picture of Kurt wearing this coat but I did find an interview on KROQ for February 2,1996. In the interview he talks about the coat but as far as we know it's all here say.

"KROQ: We'll do some more questions, then. If you are up for that. Your name is?

Danielle. I'm kind of nervous because this is like, really important to me. I've been waiting years to meet you and, um...

BC: (laughs) I've been waiting years to meet you.

Danielle: I think you are a beautiful person, inside and out. I wanted to know, I saw you in various pictures wearing a flannel coat that looked exactly like Kurt Cobain's?

BC: Yeah, that's an interesting story, actually, if you'd like to hear it.

Danielle: And it said in a magazine that it was his.

BC: It is true. It was his coat.

Danielle: How'd you get it?

BC: Well, it's interesting. One of those crazy Courtney stories. (laughing) Um. We were playing in Seattle and for some reason it was summer but it was cold. And, you know, she goes, 'Here, I brought you this coat'. And it looks awful Seattle-like and I look at her, and she goes 'Don't worry, its mine. It wasn't his'. Fine. So, I'm wearing this coat, da-da-da, I go to New York to do the MTV awards, and people who knew Kurt, and who know me were going 'Oh my god, you're wearing his coat. What the hell is going on?' And I'm like, 'Told the story, off goes the coat'. I do the SPIN interview, and the guy was the one who wrote the Nirvana book, Come As You Are, whatever. So, and he asked me about the coat. It was an innocent like 'I didn't know'. And suddenly its in the thing like I'm wearing it like some kind of badge. And then I'm Kurt Jr. or something, you know? So there's one of those crazy Courtney stories."

Look at this doppelganger version of the Smashing Pumpkins. I don't even know what the name of the band is, but look at these fucking people. Look at the fucking camera. The camera is right here! Is the Asian girl the only one who can see where the fucking camera is?

The band in the picture is Pains of Being Pure At Heart. And thats not even the current lineup. The singer / guitarist is the only one still in the band from the pic.

They do sound like S.P. at times. Their sound is kind of grunge meets pop.

It's an accurate term for people who attempt to be Internet warriors for social justice and doing very little to enact very little change. It really pisses people off because it hits too close to home. Take, for example, trots, who uses a term like rape culture. Probably never has ever actually served at a women's shelter, given money to anti-rape organizations or even participated in a walk for rape victims. But yet his enlightened self is a champion of rape victims everywhere by throwing around the term "rape culture" which in and of itself trivializes rape.

But of course he wouldn't know that because he hasn't actually read any feminist criticism or taken part in any movements, his knowledge is limited to what he heard on an Anita Sarkeesian YouTube video.

Dumbfuck.
