I can imagine married life with Kurt Cobain was pretty fucking dismal. Less Sleepless in Seattle and microwave popcorn and more catatonic Kurt staring at a dead bird on his window sill and shitting in his pants. Genius artist and all that bullshit that comes with being a self-medicated moping wet blanket. At some point before Kurt decided it was time to shotgun shuffle of his mortal coil, he took time to put a handwritten note in his wallet about his equally horrific life partner, Courtney Love.
Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife, even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring…
I can abide progressive wedding vows about working together to keep Mother Earth pristine, or those where Cleveland Browns fans make jokes about suffering together through more football seasons, but this seems a bit of a downer. Some are speculating that this note was a dark joke between Kurt and Courtney. These are people who’ve obviously never had a serious girlfriend before. I don’t care how macabre she is, she won’t giggle when she finds a note in your wallet calling her a gold digging dope fiend whore. You know, especially when she happens to be a gold digging dope fiend whore. In the end, Kurt referred to Courtney a ‘goddess’ in his suicide note. He was probably super crazy fucking high when he wrote both, so who’s to say which represented his true feelings about Courtney Love. Well, the gun in the mouth might provide some insight.
