This last link is a very, very sad one indeed. Chris Cornell, 1/3 of the Holy Grunge Trinity that was Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden, took his own life yesterday at age 52. This video of him singing with his daughter will make your heart hurt. RIP, sir.
Did anyone else out there watch G.L.O.W. on Saturday mornings? Hollywood and Vine were my GIRLS. What important, vital information have I missed this week?
