    So sad. I remember all the soundgarden cassette tapes I played till they were worn out.

    I grew up in the south and for so long, seattle was this mythical place where my favorite music came from–it seemed more much align with my temperament and outlook than the sleepy southern beach town i grew up in.

    Getting to be an adult, living in Seattle–yeah, real good. Of course, his seattle is gone totally (thanks, amazon) but there are tiny pockets, still.

    Such sadness (especially since it was the anniversary Ian Curtis’ death.)

      Oh god…. I didn’t know about the Ian Curtis connection (likely a coincidence, but still).

    Bessie Stringfield link is wonderful. What inspiration!

    Arrested Development. Love.

    And the Arthur Elgort photos.

    Arthur Elgort’s photos always seem to be filled with joy. I hope he’s a nice guy in real life.

    So sad about Chris Cornell…incredible talent, gone too soon. I’m binging on Soundgarden,Temple of the Dog and Audioslave videos.

      I had to look it up, but Arthur Elgort is the dad to Ansel Elgort, a younger actor (looks like his dad was in his 50s when he was born) who was in The Fault in Our Stars. Great pix!
