Why did Kurt Cobain dye his hair?

User Avatar
Because he felt like it, and he could. Not by necessity, he was his healthy natural blond by the time he bit the bullet at the ripe old age of 27. Fun fact: during Courtney's pregnancy with Frances Bean Cobain, she wanted to dye her hair but was advised not to so Kurt had his hair a deep, unnatural red until Frances was born. After the birth of their daughter, Courtney went to the red color and Kurt back to his natural hair. Of course he dyed his hair in multiple other occasions, but I think this one was the sweetest.

Can you cut your roosters talons- he is tripping over himself?

User Avatar
shedding a little light I don't have the complete answer, but I have seen roosters with shaved talons. I wonder if a file was used, I'm thinking a chain file? I also wonder if these talons have a blood supply like when you cut your dogs nails and cut too much, and they bleed? More Info Yes you can trim a roosters spurs. Trimming the spurs on a rooster can be done several ways. Hand filing is a little tedious and can be difficult with a struggling rooster. Full grown spurs cannot/should not just be cut like you would with a dogs nails, they will bleed profusely and can actually bleed out a bird if done wrong. Use a dremel tool or rotary grinder for quick trim jobs and file away only about 1/3 of the length to avoid blood loss. File flat so the spur is blunt. The rock and twist method involved pliers. First move the spur back and forth until the spur breaks at the base, with a light grip then twist the hard spur releasing it from the inner core. You will be left with a soft inner core which may bleed a little. I will give you a good link with pictures to get more information. See RELATED LINKS

How did Kurt Cobain die?

The official version is that Kurt Cobain's death was a suicide. On the death certificate the coroner listed a "contact perforating shotgun wound to the head" as the cause of death and ruled it a suicide. Some people believe that Cobain's death was a murder rather than a suicide. Many of those who hold with this school of thought also believe Courtney Love may have had something to do with it, potentially to get custody of their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. Cobain's friends and family are also divided on the subject. The following evidence is claimed to be ambiguous and to cast doubt on the suicide: - Kurt was left handed and the gun was found in his right hand. - There were no legible fingerprints on the gun. - The second part of the "suicide" note is questioned by handwriting experts. - Kurt had an overdose of heroin in his system which could have rendered him physically incapable of shooting himself. - A man passed a lie detector test while stating that Courtney Love had previously offered money for him to kill Kurt (which he declined).

If you have an alcoholic parent and have been diagnosed with severe chronic depression how can you make sure your kids do not have these problems?

User Avatar
avoid exposing your children to exhibitors of alcoholism, foster an open environment for communication purposes to assist in identifying depression signs early, should they occur. this last suggestion is important, should the depression be purely resulting from nature. if that is so, hold no grudges to your parent, and recognise that any such inherited disadvantage is likely to have been diluted through the generation gap between your parent and children. think about what your parent did around you that may have led to your chronic depression - were they not present regularly, were they distant, did they concentrate excessively on their own enjoyment and not confront responsibilities. Provide your children with the opposite and should your depression be a circumstance of nurture, the possibility of it continuing into the lives of your children is significantly reduced. in summary: open communication should chronic depression be affecting your children, and a close relationship to reduce the likelihood of your children feeling displaced. chronic depression, as most psychological disorders, frequently affects once it has been triggered within an individual - acting in a manner whereby singular bouts of depression are less likely to occur therefore mitigates the potential for greater distress being incurred. not the best answer, but i wholly hope you are able to make the best of your situation. remember, you do not wish to control your children as such, merely recognise the affect parental behaviour generates through the parent-child relationship. children see actions at a base level, hence why parents are appreciated as role models, in early childhood development (say 0-11 years) children are extremely impressionable, and thus it of little surprise that it is generally within this period that children are susceptible to disorder and misinterpretation. Alcoholism and chronic depression are often genetic. This doesn't mean that it can't be controlled in your children. The above poster gave good advice regarding children's environment being changed. If the Alcoholic is troublesome, hard on the children and yourself it's best to get out of the relationship taking your children with you. Chronic depression can be resolved as I had it many years ago and was put on an antidepressant med that basically saved my life! To date I've never had to go back on them because I got counseling and learned the technique called 'Cognitive Therapy' which teaches you to deal with your stresses in life with a totally different set of tools. I use this method to this day and it works! My father (his father and brother) were alcoholics (his two sisters were not alcoholics) and on my mother's side her one brother and one sister were alcoholics. Although genetic my brother and I had seen enough to know what alcoholism can do to a family and as much as I loved my father (knowing alcoholism is an illness) it was tough for my brother and I. We vowed to NEVER over-do alcohol and he's 58 and I'm 65 and we have never broken that vow so that goes to show you that you can beat the gene pool! Because of the constant arguing between my parents regarding my father's alcoholism I didn't do well in school for the first three years and neither did my brother. It was probably because we were so concerned that my father might beat my mother up in their rages against each other as well as constantly talking about divorce so my brother and I got little sleep. When I think back now this must have caused some depression in my brother and I, but we didn't know it. It wasn't until I was in my early 30's I had to face up to my ghosts and I went and saw a psychologist and got all my anger, feelings of uselessness during that period of time when I was a child, and then the healing began. I was also given antidepressants for a period of time and have never had to go back to them again. My psychologist gave me the tools with Cognitive Therapy to deal with future stress. It's worked so far! Face the reality of your life, get counseling so you can bounce off your ideas or get ideas from your counselor on how to deal with your problem. Once you have left your alcoholic mate the depression should fade, but it will take time. Discuss different antidepressants with your doctor. Good luck & God Bless

Yes, he wrote both of them. The drums and bassline, however, may have been done by his bandmates, although Kurt would often write their parts for them as well.

How do you bring expression while performing on stage?

User Avatar
The use of expression is most important when performing on stage. The key idea to remember is to exaggerate facial expressions, as when audiences watch, they are watching from a distance, so they need to be sure what it is you are trying to express. The trick here though, is not to look silly when trying to exaggerate. Watch actors closely, they have to develop this as a performer. Just get some old movies, like Elvis Musicals or even 'Gone with the Wind'. These movies show over acting, but also the subtleness required when expressing on stage. Apply your new knowledge and I am sure you will do a great job.

Why did Cobain write tourette's?

User Avatar
Because he like to yell and sceam. Tourette's is a type of disease that causes people to unvolentarily scream, not that Kurt had it, but that's where the title originated from. I don't think Kurt had a particuliar motive to write the song as Kurt was more focused on Nirvana's sound rather than lyrics. Even though many of Nirvana's song sound like they have deep meaning, many of them don't. I think Kurt just had a gift, to him words just happened. I think it's just a fun song to scream your head off to. Nirvana doesn't have anyother song with straight screaming through the whole song.

What did Kurt cobain think of layne staley?

User Avatar
Kurt and Layne wernt the closesnds but they had meet a few times and hung out together after gigs. They were friends and watched each other play. "I get sick of people saying we are enermies. We dont hate each other,we are friends and we support each others bands. I know i havent got much of voice, but Layne has one hell of a voice." -Kurt commenting on the lies saying Nirvana and Alice in chains fight and hate each other. Kurt and I weren't the closest of friends, but we ran in to each other at shows and hung out. I knew him well enough to be devastated by his death. I just don't understand at all. The last time I saw him,(March 94) he gave me a ride from QFC on Broadway to a friend's house, the whole way there, which was about a fifteen minute drive, he talked about his daughter. For such a quiet person, he was so excited about having a child, he really loved that little girl.Then about a month later I saw on the news... [long pause] that he was dead. -Layne Staley comment on Kurt.
