Yes, I DO Have A Gun

There are a few things you DON'T do in my world:
1) Insult my family/friends/shoe collection
2) Utter the words, "I don't really like cupcakes, I'm more of a cookie fan."
3) Take the names of Stephen King, Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, or Kurt Cobain in Vain.

Brandon Flowers, frontman for the glam rock Vegas band, the Killers has cardinally SINNED against the rock gods, and I'm HELLA PISSED!

I love the Killers, and I've heard Brandon spout off with his famously un-filtered trap on things before, but NEVER quite like this---

The UK's Daily Star quoted Brandon saying, "I don't mean it in a bad way, but I think Kurt Cobain and grunge took the fun out of rock 'n roll. Everything's changing, though, and it’s starting to become a lot more playful and brighter."

He said this on the 15th anniversary, no less, of Cobain's suicide (or, at least, the discovery of his body).
As if never having the chance to divorce Courtney Love or tell his HIDEOUS daughter, Francis Bean Cobain(Who recently threw a suicide themed birthday party, to have cheek lipo-suction isn't bad enough!! Courtney Love

SHAME ON YOU, Brandon Flowers! SHAME ON YOU!

Actual conversation between me and Kurt Cobain speaking via Heaven video chat:
Penny: "I really like your dress!"
Kurt: "Thanks! I like your shoes!" Why are you even typing that jerk's name - I thought you cared."
Penny: "I'm just getting the word out so others can know and be angry too...................Would you like a cupcake?!
Kurt: "I bet that Brandon Flowers doesn't like cupcakes."
Penny: "Cupcakes don't like him!"

i love most of what you love. there is one thing that we disagree on, but i will not identify it and upset your day! and the killers are pretty good (not nearly as great as nirvana was), and that guy was a dope for bagging on kurt kobain/nirvana. dumb move. really dumb. and if he really feels that way, he doesn't get the whole rock-n-roll history thing!

M- :) Ur gonna have to go to both? - I hate having to shuttle to like 2 or 3 different locations. The SECOND Jas and I get a house, I'm sending out a blanket invite to everybody for EVERY holiday to come to MY house!

...and now u HAVE TO tell me what u don't like in my rules--those rules mostly apply to people I don't know since I'm an INFJ Personality type and hate confrontation in personal relationships(one of my grad school classes I'm taking is 'Personality and Understanding') :)

Pen Pen said...

OOPS! I'm an INFP not an INFJ!!

Yes I have this realy crazy hectic Easter crap weekend thingy with brunch at the parents in laws house, shooting the demon dog from hell and that damned Easter Bunny, pretending to be Diana Ross in a time machine with Bob Ross as my hairdresser making felt rocks and ranting while rearranging other peoples furniture in my head. Dinner at my parents house with my whole family asking when Jack&i are going to adopt a baby (Do I look like Madonna or Angelina?), talking to the voices in my head and taking enough Vicodan to survive this holiday Easter crap ;)

Pen Pen said...

Aww! Are u planning to adopt?! I have a friend who just adopted. She works at a hospital and when a baby girl came in cuz she was abandoned in a field, she ended up being a kiddo they were able to adopt. It was funny- She took care of her at the hospital as a patient before knowing the little girl was going to be an option :)

M said...

Adopt?! Well perhapse some day but not right now. I am almost turning 28, that magical age when all your friends are sperminated, popping out babies all over the place. And then everyone expect you to do the same.
Sweet story abouth your friend!

:) I hear you! I get the guilt for not being married to my boyfriend yet from everyone. - AND JUST yesterday, my mom did the guilt for me not giving her a grandchild yet to hide eater eggs for---that was my first baby guilt so far. Really tho--THere certainly is an invisible threshold you cross for each of those and people start thinking something's wrong if ur not "on time" :)
