Happy 41st Birthday, Kurt Cobain!

All Apologies, 1992, Reading Festival

About a Son: the trailer

Frances: Mama's girl

Happy Birthday, Kurt. Perhaps you've heard: plans for a Universal Studios biopic based on Charles Cross's definitive biography Heavier Than Heaven continue to unfold, apparently without Scarlett Johannsen as the young Courtney Love.

In the meantime, About a Son, the film cobbled together from our old friend Michael Azerrad's interviews with you, is out today on DVD. Sorry, dude: you're still fucking famous.

On the upside, we think Frances Bean is gonna be OK: 15, on the cover of Harpers Bazaar this month, loves Sex and the City, pierced her nose, has "the attention span of a rabbit on cocaine," describes herself as "an attention whore" and a "shoe junkie" (hey, given the genes, there are worse kinds of whores and junkies she could be, yes?), has performed in about 20 high school musicals, and is BFF with Tallulah Willis (yep, Bruce and Demi's kid).

We'd drag out some more Nirvana stuff, but . . . we think we emptied the vault the last time. Here's a few tidbits:

Oh, by the way, any chance you could maybe ghost some new tunes for Dave? He's been rewriting the same three songs for like four albums.
