All in all is all we all are

Here's another birthday boy, only he's no longer around for it...

Kurt Cobain would be forty years old today. Here he is performing an early version of "All Apologies," my personal favorite Nirvana song, at the 1992 Reading festival; note the line "All my words are gray," which would later get changed to "Everyone is gay." I actually prefer it the first way - more poetic, less my-we're-outrageous.

His smile and "thanks" at the beginning is just so nice.
