Finally, my prayers have been answered. Let’s call it a Christmas miracle. John has a blog!
Ok, this is creepy:
A new Nirvana documentary is in the making – one which will be narrated by Kurt Cobain himself. Film makers were in the singer’s home town of Aberdeen, Washington recently to start work on a documentary about Cobain.
However in a unique twist the singer himself will narrate the film, with producers using more than 25 hours of interview tapes recorded by journalist Michael Azerrad between December 1992 and March 1993.
Azerrad is most famous for his Nirvana biography ‘Come As You Are’, which is regarded as one of the most authoratitive books on the band.
“The film is based on a series of interviews that Michael Azerrad conducted with Kurt while researching the book. There are more than 25 hours of these audio interviews in all, none of which have been heard before by anyone,” director AJ Schnack told NME.COM.
“I worked with Michael to cull an approximately 95-minute audio track from these interviews. While I’m not sure that ‘narrated’ is exactly the right word, you will be listening in on conversations between Kurt and Michael, with Kurt telling his life story for that book. There are no additional interviews with other figures from Kurt’s life, just Kurt speaking, with an occasional question or comment from Michael.”
The other members of Nirvana are not involved with the currently untitled film, which is set to be screened at various film festivals next autumn.
Schnack added: “It pretty much covers his whole life leading-up to the interviews with the emphasis being more on him and his general take on things rather than on general band developments. We’re not using any archival footage at all. The music will focus on bands that influenced Kurt during the various stages of his life. It’s unclear what part, if any, Nirvana music may play in the finished film.”
And, as always, the New York Times is about 10 years behind on all things cool: The Net is a Boon For Indie labels.

Today’s highlights: today I went with my mother to a hige fleamarket. You would not believe the amount of booths that sold clip on hair and scrunchies. I suddenly realized I was in dire need of one of those beaded strings that you put on the end of your glasses to you don’t lose them. I’ve been in Florida too long. Then for dinner we had chickn broth with rice, because earlier we were “bad” and had frozen yogurt. Help!
