My Kurt Cobain About a Son article.

As seen in this week's issue of GoTriad!:

Nearly everyone who spent part of their adolescence during the '90s did so hearing the crackly, almost mumble-like quality of Kurt Cobain's voice through his music and limited TV appearances before his suicide in 1994.

However, it wasn't until I saw the documentary "Kurt Cobain About a Son" that I actually had the chance to really listen to him speak.

That's because A.J. Schnack the film's director, chose early on to chronicle the late rocker's life without interviewing friends, family or celebrity fans. He also didn't incorporate the music Cobain recorded with his now legendary band, Nirvana, nor use pictures of his face until the very end of the film.

"Kurt Cobain About a Son" simply allows viewers to hear the rocker's life story through his own words. The result is a documentary that steals Cobain away from the media-carved image of a tragic, grunge-rock martyr and restores a sense of his humanity.

"My nephew was turning 13 when I was first thinking about the project," Schnack says via telephone.

"And I could tell that the Kurt he knew was this constructed caricature of a guy and was completely dominated by the terrible end to Kurt's life.

"(Kurt) was interesting for a lot of reasons, and almost none of those reasons have anything to do with heroin use or Courtney (Love) or the variety of issues that we still deal with today."

Hopefully everyone who reads this page knows the film will be screening tonight at 9:30 p.m. Mike Compton and I will be on hand to give away a few prizes, so bone up on your Kurt Cobain trivia.

There was a surge of ticket sales for the film yesterday, and so I am going to repeat myself: If you want to see this film tonight, you must, MUST, pre-order. It's as simple as that. You can do that by driving over to the Carousel Luxury Cinemas box-office this morning, or if you want to save gas and time, you can purchase the tickets online. I don't want to see anyone I know crying because they couldn't get in.

So get on the ark, people - the flood is a comin'.
