The Sunny Side of Kurt Cobain
This is the Quote of the Day at the top of my google email account- Kurt Cobain - "Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are." Awww, that's what Dr. Phil would say! I'm not sure about the validity of this quote, because to me it sounds downright cheerful for someone who wrote about self-loathing, self-medication and killing himself in almost every one of his songs. Oh, and also for someone who gave himself a lethal dose of heroin and blew his brains out with a shotgun, on his second suicide attempt. Maybe the quote was really,"Wanting to be someone is like wasting the person you are." Either way, it's strange to see someone quoting Kurt Cobain.
