KURT COBAIN died 20 years ago last Saturday, but we've never stopped thinking about him. The Guardian posted a trove of its original coverage at Buzzfeed, and republished its reporting on his death on their own site (SPIN reupped its 1994 coverage also). LHB re-upped a collection of Nirvana covers. Everett True, who knew the singer, struggles to resurrect the spirit of the band. Stereogum ranks Nirvana's Top 10, and it doesn't include "Smells Like Teen Spirit."  I'll link to the Unplugged versions of my two faves, "About A Girl," and "All Apologies," with the hopes you vcan hear them better than Everett True can.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Captain America: The Winter Soldier easily tops the chart with 96.2 million. For perspective, consider that for movies not opening in November (when Thor: The Dark World made 5.1 million less in 2013) or the Summer blockbuster seasons, only The Hunger Games and Alice In Wonderland opened at over 100 million. The Cap sequel has also already grossed 207 million overseas -- more than the first Cap did in its entire theatrical run.  Marvel's trajectory for what were once considered second-tier superheroes is nothing less than astounding, the stuff of movie history.  Noah places with 17 million on a 61 percent skid accelerated by the return of the Avenger.  Divergent shows with 13 million on a 49 percent drop and crosses the 100 million mark. God's Not Dead moves up to the fourth slot with 7.7 million on a mere 12 percent drop. The Grand Budapest Hotel rounds out the Top 5 with 6.3 million on a 26 percent drop as the Wes Anderson pic finally hit wide release. At 87 million worldwide, it's already Anderson's biggest release, though only third domestically.
