Courtney Oh No

August 16th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

I’ve always had a soft spot for Courtney Love. Probably because Live Through This was the only thing I listened to one year in college, depressed and spitting with female rage. I woke up to it in the morning like people do with their coffee and took it in everyday like meds. I still know every word of the album, even though I suck at remembering lyrics.

After Kurt Cobain killed himself, that album became the last living extension of him for me. I don’t mean that in a snarky way; I don’t think he wrote the album like people always say he did, but his influence and Kurt and Courtney’s dark synergy color the whole thing. Kurt was dead. Nirvana was dead. Courtney was living through it.

Last month, Courtney blogged about wishing she had spent more time with Kurt, but she hadn’t wanted to seem like Yoko. Courtney and Yoko have, of course, been inextricably linked, probably for life. Which is fine, because I have a soft spot for Yoko, too, and don’t think John could have made Plastic Ono Band–another favorite “I’m in the mood to kill myself” record of mine–without her.

So when I saw this today on Gizmodo

Kurt Cobain Action Figure

…it really, as an old friend used to say, chapped my butt. WTF? Did Courtney sign off on this garbaggio? What’s next–the Kurt Cobain Shooting Heroin Action Figure?

And then I thought, not even Yoko would stoop this low. But boy, was I wrong:

I was trying to give Andrew bunny ears, but I ended up throwing an Asian peace sign instead. Yo, I think that's racist.
