JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT PERFORMS NIRVANA’S “LITHIUM”
And the Hollywood/sorta metal news keeps on keepin’ on…
Joseph Gordon-Levitt started out as the kid from 3rd Rock from the Sun (PAUL MASVIDAL UP IN DIS BEE-YATCH!), but he’s grown into a fine actor, and he’s appeared in some of my favorite movies of the past I dunno however many years. (If you haven’t seen Inception and Brick, get thine ass to Netflix pronto.) He’s also one of the founders of hitRECord, a pretty awesome website in which people from all the net collaborate on various kinds of art projects. So, really, I have nothing bad to say about the dude.
Still, there’s something kinda funny about the fact that he chose to perform Nirvana’s “Lithium” at a recent event for the aforementioned hitRECord, especially given that he seems so upbeat in interviews. Bu he’s not bad at all, and his speech partway through about how the fact that Cobain killed himself shouldn’t deter anyone from enjoying Cobain’s music is a good if kinda obvious point.
And then I found twenty bucks.
Thanks to KL for the tip.
