BLOG BLACKOUT BREAK

BLOG BLACKOUT TEMPORARILY INTERRUPTED!

So it's been months already since I posted something here. Pre-occupied by some things which I cannot tell you guys exactly. But one of them is I wanted to spend some time with some people special to me that's why.

So since year 2009 is about to end in a few hours I'd like to post a year-ender post.

I'd like to start by asking myself (which question might be running on your mind lately, well if you miss me, lol!) what I've been up to for a couple of months. Well, here you go, I'll try to reckon every moment and I hope my memory serves me well.

1. I concentrated on my studies
2. Met someone at an unexpected time and circumstance. Talk about Typhoon Ondoy. Well this someone became a special one which I don't want to elaborate anymore. It's just too overwhelming to wallow this one out.
3. Moved in my new condo which by the way is still not fully furnished though livable. Started a pseudo-independent living. (pseudo, because my mom still pays for everything!, but I hope with fingers crossed I could proudly say I'm fully independent after my first pay check!, well got to find a job first!).
4. In relation to number 3 I'm starting to experience first hand, doing household chores which is a first time. I've experienced doing my own laundry and scrubbing the tiles of my bathroom which kinda sucks. But it's only a matter of time and I'd get a hand of it.
5. In relation to number 3 and 4, BOOZE. BOOZE and more BOOZE haha! The perks of living alone is I have all the time to party and chill! But at the end of the day or night? haha!, I'm still alone in my condo, well save for exceptional circumstances! ;-)
6. I closed my first car-sales transaction and got an extra money to buy a new high-end phone hehe! (which Mom doesn't know yet! haha!)
7. I got hired in a Korean English Tutorial School, but had a conflict with my sked at school so have to decline pursuing it.
8. I went on "Facebook Rehab" for my addiction to its applications, which by the way is successful.
9. Celebrated my first Christmas with a friend in a hotel and grabbed some beer at a gas station. Continued the celebration at my Condo with my brother. But was bedridden the whole day because of colds.
10. Received a VERY VERY VERY BAD NEWS. Too bad I have to endure it even before the new year starts. Thanks to booze and the entertainment brought by the band in the bar I went to last night.

So it's less than 6 hours before NEW YEAR and I don't know if there's something wrong with me not going out to celebrate it with friends or relatives. I'm no scrooge by the way, maybe I'm just too lazy to go out and yeah maybe I'm not getting younger to celebrate it; or I just had enough of celebrations; or there's really nothing to celebrate; or maybe it's just me, I just do find joy in solitude. Hahaha!!

On second thought!, medyo sad din pala, even if I have a lot of friends, I still feel left-out.. :(

The Cowboy Angel

I was really moved by this kid, Logan. I never thought a kid like him could utter the words he said. Poor me, I don't even spare some time to pray and go to the church and worship Him. Guess, Logan's a wakeup call for me..

An 'Ondoy' Commentary


"You don't need proof to show you care."

As I observe people in my community do their charitable works for the victims of Typhoon Ondoy, I can't help but wonder if these people have really good intentions, especially if this country is almost on its way to electing our new leaders. I can't help to notice that there are a lot of people with selfish interests, taking this calamity as an opportunity to gain some votes.

Not only that I am pissed by these political aspirants doing all the grand standing. I, too get annoyed by the fact that some of the people I know are doing all these support and assistance to the victims and brag about what they have just done. Talk about, documentations through pictures uploaded via their facebook, friendster and other social networking sites. (C'mon!! HINDI PHOTO-OPS ANG PINUNTAHAN NYO?!) And sorry, but I just don't like the fact that every waking hour one's status on facebook or twitter is about the fact that he or she did some good deed to the victims. And why in the hell does a TV Station has to update the viewers of how many people have they helped and how much donations they have solicited? I just don't see the point.

Why don't these people, follow the likes of FPJ who have been helping the people of Rizal for quite a long time without press coverage, even before he ran for President; or the late Rico Yan who has been instrumental to a number of youth organizations and who has helped a lot of less fortunates.

Well, 'to each his own'. But why don't people get the notion of humility? Even when someone wins a prize or an award in any competition he or she can be humble about it and not having to brag about his achievement. But damn!, doing something good for others and bragging about it, is something I cannot accept. The fact that a person participated in a good deed is something that others would be impressed about already. One need not be ostentatious and exaggerate about it.

Hay.. Sorry, it's just me.

Mother, We Just can't get enough!



There's something about you,

Tears me inside out
Whenever youre around
There's something about you
Speeding through my veins
Until we hit the ground
And theres something about this rush
Take it away
It made me feel so good
I get a feeling
You get a feeling,
We got a feeling
Like we could die
And guess what mother
We just cant get enough
We just cant get enough
We just gotta get it up
We just gotta get it up
Theres something about you
That tears me inside out
Whenever youre around
And theres something about you
That makes me fly
Youre a heart attack,
Just the kind I like
And theres something about your kiss
Haunting and strange
That makes me feel so good
I get a feeling,
You get a feeling,
We got a feeling
Like were alive
And mother
Chorus:
We just cant get enough
We just cant get enough
Lover
We just gotta get it up
We just gotta get it up
This world may not have too much time
But baby Im fine
Because maybe youre mine
We just cant get enough
This world may not have too much time
But baby Im fine
Because maybe youre mine
We just cant get enough
You better give up,
Come on and give up
Give up your life
Its you for me, and me for you
You make my dreams come true
Off the wall coming from me
But I wanna see this through, my baby
Youre on my mind all the time
I found a million dimes
You rolled the dice, and lost them all
And baby I just dont mind
And incidentally mother
(chorus)
And I dont want no one
If I cant have you
A world of illusion
But baby youre true
I know I deceived you
I once told you lies
If you dont believe me
Just look in my eyes
Social security number please
Credit card number please
Money please
Money please
Money please
Please deposit $85 dollars
For the next three minutes please
(or your call will be f***ing disconnected immediately)
Aw yeah, all right, feel good tonight

THE FINISH LINE




The earth is warm next to my ear
Insect noise is all that I hear
A magic trick makes the world disappear
The skies are dark, they're dark but they're clear

A distant motorcade and suddenly there's joy
The snow and ticker tape blurs all my senses numb
It's like the finish line where everything just ends
The crack of radios seems close enough to touch

Cold water, cleaning my wounds
A sad parade, with a single balloon
I'm done with this, I'm counting to ten
Bluest seas, running to them

I feel like I am watching everything from space
And in a minute I'll hear my name and I'll wake
I think the finish line's a good place we could start
Take a deep breath, take in all that you could want

Seriously, I'm not on drugs!

It's past 2AM already and I thought I really really really need to release some thoughts.

Remember my post on the 11:11 Phenomenon? Well, actually since I've posted it, it didn't stop from recurring.

Over the past few weeks or days, I've observed that the sightings have gone abnormal. I find it unusual to have sightings 4 or 5 times a day. But I still ignored it, until tonight.

The last sighting I can remember for this evening was 11:11PM. I ignored it and thought it's just one of the normal sightings I often encounter. After finishing my Chuck Marathon, Kurt Cobain recorded interviews and checking my social network accounts, I went to bed. It was around 12 AM on my cellphone. I noticed that my cellphone is running out of battery but for some reason I didn't charge it. And for some other reason I activated the Vibe Mode, which I've not done for years now.

I fell asleep as soon as I closed my eyes, which is unnatural for an insomniac like me. Well of course, I don't know what happened next because I was sleeping. So I'd go straight ahead to the point of this entry now.

I was awakened by a vibrate of my phone or so I thought. I checked my phone, but there aren't any messages or missed calls. But the thing that gave me creeps is that it's exactly 2:22AM on my phone. I rushed into my pc and turned it on, blogging is the first thing that really got into my head. I waited for windows to load and in a couple of minutes my desktop appeared on the screen. But damn!, when I turned my eyes to the clock display, you wouldn't believe!, it's 2:22AM. I just realized that I set the time on my cellphone a few minutes advanced than the regular time, since I use it as my alarm clock.

Now for the second time I am asking, was this pure coincidence?

Now this time I am not putting my opinion on hold. I am quite positive that this is some sort of a sign which I should really figure out. Can't help but ask myself if I should really accept the fact that there are really angels protecting people, as what "Phenomenon 11:11" proclaims.

Whatever it is, I'd like to remind you guys, and I promise, I am not on drugs.

Well, I've been thinking about the events that happened before these so-called sightings of mine which hypothetically speaking if we're going to apply the concept of "11:11 Phenomenon" (which you might want to read to understand me more) could have made me experience it awhile ago. And I recalled that there's only one thing that's worthy of consideration, my father who I've not been seeing for quite sometime for reasons too personal for me to tell here, texted me. He's got a new number actually, and as I checked the new number again, I noticed that the combination of the numbers and its order is quite striking. (i.e. 718-7180- not actual number).

But I guess, nothing is more striking than a son who didn't even care to reply to a simple text from his own father. Sigh.**

8.21.1983

Got this from a friend, thought I'd share..

"Cory Aquino died, August 01, 2009 @ 3:18 in the Morning. That's 08-01-2009 3:18. Remove the 0's and put the numbers together.... results to 8129318. Rearrange the numbers. Results to 8-21-1983. Now, that's August 21, 1983, the day Ninoy Died..."


So was it Pure COINCIDENCE? Hmm.. Let me reserve my opinion on this one. Hehe!! C'mon share your thoughts!

Seasons in the Sun

One of those Rare Nirvana covers, "Seasons in the Sun", original by Terry Jacks. This song was one of Kurt's favorite that's why he made a cover of it in 1993. They even switched instruments here, Kurt on drums, Dave Grohl on bass, Krist Novoselic on guitar.

Now, if you would analyze the song, it talks about death. How we should face our last days here on earth. If you'd glean from the first line of the song, it even says "Goodbye to you my trusted friend..", which Kurt changed to, "Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die.."

For some, Kurt's rendition of the song seemed like a suicide note, but for someone who has known Kurt Cobain through his journals, I won't agree with such statement. And if you're a fan of Nirvana and their music, you'll recognize how much contradictions there are in the lyrics of his songs. It's not that I want to imply that there aren't any truth about his songs and that we shouldn't believe whatever Kurt Cobain says in his songs. It's just that it supports the idea that 'what we say, may not always correspond to what we really think'. Speaking our minds is different from speaking the words coming out of our mouth.

And another thing, Kurt's songs are a bunch of poetry and whatever contradictions we may find in it only proves how great a musician he is!

Basta!!!! I firmly and strongly believe, with conviction and without any mental reservation that he didn't commit suicide, if he ever did, someone might have caused him to do it!

So here's this AWESOME VIDEO, and at the bottom Kurt's own version of the lyrics to the song..

video


Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky
and all the flowers are everywhere
pretty girls are everywhere
"Think of me and i'll be there."


goodbye, papa, please pray for me
i was the black sheep of the family
"I don't know all these words
I have bought three turds
With my BB-gun I would kill birds"
(This part is different in the nirvana version to the original version by Terry Jacks. The Terry Jacks version goes as follows:
"You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
I wonder how i got along")


we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
but the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time

All our lives, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
But the stars that we reached were just starfish on the beach.

goodbye, michelle, my little one
"I was the apple of the shining sun.
And I have loved you every week
All my tears are salty
I think that now I will start to leave"


We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time

We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
But the stars that we reached were just starfish on the beach.

We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time

We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
But the stars that we reached where just starfish on the beach.

IF I FALL

Dahil busy ako, here's a "feel-good" video muna, with AMBER PACIFIC's "IF I FALL" on the background. Well, the song's a little bit emo, but I don't know I just feel good when I hear the song. Hehe!! :D



This is for the ones who believes their lives won't change
Hoping then someday things will meant and be the same
And this is for the ones who have lost it all and all that's left to gain
Is a simple reminder that the things that were blind to slip away...

How can I say...
Say I'll be okay...

And if I fall through these days that go by without cause
Just a painful mistake has left me here on my own
And if I fall through these nights I can't seem to go on
Just a sign that you're with me gives me the strength to hold on

Now that the lines been broken
I'm too afraid to just look back
The pages have left an empty space
You were all I had
Why does it have to be this way
These things they'll never change
Still I'm left with knowing, content and happy, this is all I need...

And if I fall through these days that go by without cause
Just a painful mistake has left me here on my own
And if I fall through these nights I can't seem to go on
Just a sign that you're with me gives me the strength to hold on

And if I fall through these days that go by without cause
Just a painful mistake has left me here on my own
And if I fall through these nights I can't seem to go on
Just a sign that you're with me gives me the strength to hold on...

Quadruple Cheesy-ness

Pardon me guys. I just can't get enough of this 'cheesy-ness' haha!! Now, this time I'm posting not just one video but four videos from four great bands. So hope you bear with my cheesyness, though this is really really going to be a tough one, 'coz this is quadruple the cheesyness of my previous posts. hehe!!

DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL

First Video: This video of "Stolen" is from one of my favorite bands 'Dashboard Confessional'. From the time I've heard their song "Hands down" I felt I needed to buy their record, well I didn't, 'coz I found out my brother has one. Haha!! Too bad they've become a little bit mainstream. I wonder when are they going to have a new album.

Here's an acoustic/orchestral version! Para mas 'cheesy'! haha!! I think this track would be a nice background music on a date. (hmmm.. thought bubble insert!) haha!!





We watch the season pull up its own stakes
And catch the last weekend of the last week
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced,
Another sun soaked season fades away

You have stolen my heart

Invitation only, grant farewells
Crush the best one, of the best ones
Clear liquor and cloudy eyed, too early to say goodnight

You have stolen my heart

And from the ballroom floor we are in celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we all, will sleep well

You have stolen
You have stolen my heart

I watch you spin around in the highest heels
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel

You have stolen my
You have stolen my heart



AMBER PACIFIC

Second Video: This is the video of Poetically Pathetic by Amber Pacific, another favorite band of mine. Amber Pacific is a Seattle band, like Nirvana. Their songs are really great from the lyrics to the arrangement. They've just released an EP with 3 new tracks on i-tunes. The new tracks are: The Good Life; Don't Let It Fall Through and The Right Place At The Wrong Time

Here's the video of "Poetically Pathetic".





I'm Thinking of the words to say,
I'd like to think that this was fate.
Reference to a song you love,
Spell confusion with a "K"
Like a star without its strings,
I'm hanging here on these two wings.
For that smile and those eyes
I'm falling

If time could stop, how could I make this more poetic?
When there's nothing more pathetic to be said

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside.
You carry truth, and make me smile.
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you,
For you...

If you ever had the chance,
Would you make your life seem right?
Or would you only hold it back,
The good times, the hard, and the bad.
Whatever you say is alright,
Just as long as there's no doubt.
Could you look me in the eye
and say hopes died?

If time could stop, how could I make this more poetic?
When there's nothing more pathetic to be said

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside.
You carry truth, and make me smile.
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you.

Our wish,
Each time,
Keeps me returning to you,
Night after night
Lift me up as high as the clouds that won the sky,
For you and I

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside.
You carry truth, and make me smile,
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside
You carry truth, and make me smile
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you,
For you...



Third Video: This one's an old one, from The Police, the English Rock band in the 80's wherein Sting was the vocalist back then. The band who popularized the song "Every Breath you Take". The video you'll about to see is a performance by Sting of the song It's "Every Little Thing she does is Magic", which was an original from The Police. I guess most of you know this, because our very own Paolo Santos had a cover of this in one of his albums.





Though Ive tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her
I just lose my nerve
As Ive done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
Its a big enough umbrella
But its always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
And ask her if shell marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

LAST VIDEO: And to finish this off, I'll leave you with this song from... drum roll please! hehe! Of course the list isn't complete without a song from the band of my demi-God Kurt Cobain, Nirvana! hehe! The song is "About a Girl".





I need an easy friend
I do with an ear to lend
I do think you fit this shoe
I do what you have a clue

Ill take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I cant see you every night free
I do

Im standing in your light
I do hope you have the time
I do pick up number two
I do keep a date with you

I cant see you every night free
I do, I do, I do

CHUCK and SARAH


Anyone of you watch the series CHUCK? Chuck is an action-comedy series about an average computer whiz who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working in the CIA. The message embeds the only remaining copy of the world's greatest spy secrets into Chuck's brain.

Well, actually I am not a fan of this series and I've watched this only a couple of times. But when I am searching for the song "Crazy for this girl" by Life House on Youtube I found the video embedded below. After watching this video, I felt I need to get a copy of all the seasons of this series. Thanks there are available torrents for it!! Wohoo!!




The following is the transcript of the conversation between Sarah and Chuck, shown at the last minutes of the video.


Chuck Bartowski : Sarah, I'm not going to move in with you... Because I can't... And you know why I can't... I'm crazy about you. And I always have been. Having a fake relationship, that's one thing. But living together is... I mean everyday and being around each other and -and that's why i can't do it. I hope you understand.

Sarah Walker
: I do.
Chuck Bartowski: Thank you. [Starts to leave then stops]

Chuck Bartowski: Oh and uh just so you know, I am going to get this thing out of my head, one day. I will! And when I do, I'm going to live the life I want with the girl I love. Because I'm not going to let this thing rob me of that. I won't!


* I want to write my thoughts about the video, more particularly about the soundtrack and the conversation between Chuck and Sarah but I don't think I'm ready to blurt out whatever I am feeling right now here.. I might have a heart attack, if I did. So give this one to me! Okay?.. In time, I'll tell you my story..

By the way, you might have noticed that most of my current posts are youtube videos and that I haven't posted anything with substance and really well-thought of. Sorry guys, law school has been too demanding and so my creative will has gone down to zero. I feel like my brain's loaded by provisions of law and court cases. So please bear with my posts, and thanks to those who continue to appreciate them. ☻☻☻

I'd Like That



(Actual Intro to the song)
This song's about... talkin to the person you haven't even met yet.
Maybe they're rollin' around in the hay with someone else,
but they're not as good as you'll be... you just have to wait your turn.
She's out there, he's out there,
they're just learning what to contrast you against.

Stay at home alone on a Friday
Flat on my floor looking back
On old love
Or lack thereof
After all the crushes have faded
And all my wishful thinking was wrong
I'm jaded
I hate it

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
Get here..

Searching all my days just to find you
Not sure who I'm looking for
I'll know it
When I see you
Till then, I'll hide in my bedroom
Just staying up all night just to write
A love song for no one

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?
Oh no away
yadadadada
dadadada
dadada..

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
You'll be so good
You'll be so good for me
Ohh I know you'll be so good for me
For me

Heard the song "Love Song for No One" in my mp3 player and can't stop singing . Really love the way he sings and the messages of his songs, especially this one. The lyrics really hit me, at this very moment when I need someone.

I recalled that John Mayer has a really awesome video of it in one of his concerts so I checked my files, lucky I still have it. This is from John Mayer's "Any Given Thursday" Concert. The video I posted is from YOUTUBE, but I have a copy,if you want, just leave me a message.


I also found in my files this transcript of John Mayer's amazing intro to the song Love Song for No one.
The Song + this introductory speech or whatever you might call it= EPIC!

John Mayer: So I was thinkin' about relationships and about how it pertains to songs about relationships, And uh, I was trying to think, well it occurred to me that the key, I figured out the key to a relationship and how to make it work.

Check it out, this is, this is, a tip from your uncle John, check it out. When you first meet somebody, you find out they like you, first of all, a friend of a friend of theirs say, he or she really really likes you, and it kills you, floors you, sends you to the ground, you've got to pick yourself up off the ground; then you get their phone number and you call them up, right, and you say "Yeah, that's a really great phone conversation, can I see you some time?" and then they say this, they say, "I'd like that." Nothing feels better than "I'd like that".

So now, your blood pressures' goin, you're six feet off the ground, you can't sleep, because of "I'd like that". So then you hang out for a while, and you call and you talk on the phone all the time, and then you drop the bomb, what feels like the bomb, you say, "You know what, I've been thinkin about you a lot." And she goes, "Ahhhhhhh!" And you go "What happened?" and she goes, "I'm sorry, I just, I just, I just, that's, I've been thinking about you too." Bam. Higher into the sky. But now "I'd like that." Tch. Done. Now you're up to "I'm thinkin about you."

Then however number of months pass, it makes you feel comfortable saying it, you say "I gotta tell you something." They go "What?", you go "I'm in love with you." And nothing in the world sounds better than "I'm in love with you." And then maybe she starts crying, or maybe he goes "*gasp*". And all the sudden you're like "I'm in." But now what doesn't work?; "I'd like that." and "I've been thinkin about you." Now we're at "I'm in love with you." Then maybe some day it'll move up to "I love you." Fast forward, now you're like "I love you a lot; I love you more than anything in life." Now "I love you." doesn't work. It's a threshold that keeps movin up. Fast forward, like six months, six weeks, whatever the case may be, now you're on like, "I want to marry you." "I want to impregnate you with my love." "I wanna, I wanna just send my love to you." "Damn it, words don't work anymore." And then you say this line, and you know, you know you've used this line before, "I just wish they'd put a new word in the dictionary bigger than love because love just doesn't describe what I feel." And so now he or she starts askin, "Do you love me?" and you start goin, "Of course I love you." "Well say it." And then it becomes "Say it twice." And it goes "Say it three times." And then, you cross a really interesting point, where all the sudden it becomes "I hate you, I hate you." And you go, "Oh my god she hates me." And now it's like "I hate you more than anything." And then it's like "We're over." And then they go "No we're not." And you go "Yes we are." Now the words completely do not work at all, you're left with nothing. You're throwing punches under water. You're done. You know what the moral of that story is, if there is one. Never, ever, ever, ever underestimate the power of "I'd like that."

Heavier than Heaven (A Kurt Cobain Biopic)

TOP: L-R, Kurt Cobain; Ryan Gosling BOTTOM: L-R, Courtney Love; Scarlett Johansson


Shame on me! I'm starting to hate myself a little bit. How could I be so damn late in finding out that there's a movie coming out based on Kurt Cobain's biography. What kind of a hardcore fan am I?

Anyway, I know I can forgive myself for that in time. So according to the website where I found the information.

* The movie is based on Charles Cross's biography of Cobain, "Heavier than Heaven", which would likewise be the title of the movie.
* Courtney Love, executive producer, has said she wants actor Ryan Gosling to play her late husband Kurt Cobain in a film. (Well for those who don't know her she's the widow of Kurt Cobain and the mother of their child Frances Bean Cobain)
* Courtney who seems to be a fan of Scarlett Johansson wants that she portray her.

Well, I just hope Courtney, as executive producer won't make a trash out of this movie. But I SERIOUSLY DOUBT that the hardcore fans and loyalists would really appreciate the film, if up to now, the truth about Kurt Cobain's death has been a mystery for some and it's a fact that Love is being said to be involved in Kurt's death.

Now, based on Rollingstones Magazine pre-production has finally kicked-off, and the initial casts of the film aside from Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Gosling are:

Justin Long as Krist Noveselic, Nirvana's bassist
Topher Grace
as Dave Grohl
, Nirvana's drummer
Cate Blanchett
as Eric Erlandson
, served as Singer, guitarist, and songwriter for Nirvana Jake Gyllenhaal as Axl Rose of the Guns 'N Roses
Jack Black
as King Buzzo, (Buzz Osbourne)

Emile Hirsch
as Eddie Vedder, lead singer of Pearl Jam

Toni Collette
as Kim Gordon
, of Sonic Youth
Ron Jeremy
as Tad Doyle
, of the band TAD

L-R: Dave Grohl, Kurt Cobain and Krist Noveselic

Now, this isn't the first film about Kurt Cobain, if I am not mistaken i posted a review on some of them. Two of his films which was released internationally are "Last Days" in 2005, which is about a theory on how Kurt Cobain spent his last days, and "About a Son" in 2006 which basically tells a story of his childhood until he reached stardom.

I can't wait to see this new film!, and if ever I won't make it to the cinemas in time for it's showing, I promise you guys I'll commit suicide! Kiddin'! haha!!!
