Killing Yourself Twice – Magic! by Re-Open (BLW Contributor) – What was your favorite Nirvana song?

5

You can’t kill yourself twice.

According to Anton Brookes, who was working with the Nirvana on their British press interviews as a publicist at the time, “I went up an hour beforehand to touch base with everyone and check whether everything was okay. [Today] it wasn’t. There was obviously a massive altercation going on between Kurt and Courtney. You don’t want to get involved in a husband and wife dispute…You could hear  odd things being smashed…I had to keep going between the rooms and the lobby, telling the journalists ‘It’ll happen, but everything’s kind of running late,’” Brookes told The Fly. Come the afternoon, “We realized we should go in. We went rushing into the bathroom and slumped behind the toilet was Kurt with a syringe in his arm, blue.

See….when someone overdoses with heroin (injecting) most of the time they are found with the needle still in their arm (or injection site) There are some graphic examples of this on google image searches, and I won’t post those here, but remembering back to February 2014. Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose in his bathroom. Needle still in his arm.  Other addicts will wake up after injecting, and the needle will still be in their arm. Luckily they wake up right?

Before Kurt was murdered, apparently he too was found by Anton Brookes with the needle still in his arm.

So…hypothetically here. Kurt Cobain wants to commit suicide. Instead of taking a massive dose of heroin and going to sleep, never to wake up, he decided to take heroin (a lethal dose of it) and THEN shoot himself?

We are expected to believe he could still function after taking that lethal dose.  That dose would have rendered him unconscious in a matter of seconds. That means he wouldn’t have been able to even finish pushing the syringe to empty it. He would have been found with the needle in his arm. YET…

He put the caps back on the  syringes, and the syringes were put back in the cigar box, so was the spoon. He rolled down his sleeves. Picked up a shot-gun, positioned it, and pulled the trigger. He would have had to do all of this in less than 30 seconds. REMEMBER – he would have been unconscious by 15-30 seconds but how would he start to feel just 8 seconds after that amount of heroin? Woozy? Blurred vision? Lack of coordination? He also still had Valium(Diazepam) in his system.

Think about this. Have you ever had surgery? Were you given anything by IV or straight into a port (in your vein) to calm you down, or make you relaxed before surgery? I have. I had a little port in my left arm (at the elbow where most addicts like to inject) I was given Valium. Within 10 seconds I was light-headed. The amount they gave me wasn’t anything like heroin or as strong. The amount of heroin found in Kurt’s system was more than what any seasoned addict could withstand. How fast would that incapacitate him?

He’s found unconscious with a syringe still in his arm from overdosing before his alleged suicide.

He was found without a needle in his arm, everything in place, and shot himself after the dose in April 1994.

…….Doesn’t make sense does it?

Forget me not – Frank Sinatra (He did it his way)

Francis AlbertFrankSinatra (/sɨˈnɑːtrə/; December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998) was an American jazz and traditional pop singer, songwriter, actor, producer and director, who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide. Born in Hoboken, New Jersey, to Italian immigrants, he began his musical career in the swing era with Harry James and Tommy Dorsey. He found success as a solo artist after being signed by Columbia Records in 1943, becoming the idol of the “bobby soxers“. He released his first album, The Voice of Frank Sinatra, in 1946. Sinatra’s professional career had stalled by the early 1950s, and he turned to Las Vegas, where he became one of its best known performers as part of the Rat Pack. His career was reborn in 1953 with the success of From Here to Eternity and his subsequent Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He signed with Capitol Records and released several critically lauded albums, including In the Wee Small Hours (1955), Songs for Swingin’ Lovers! (1956), Come Fly with Me (1958), Only the Lonely (1958) and Nice ‘n’ Easy (1960).

Sinatra left Capitol in 1961 to start his own record label, Reprise Records, and released a string of successful albums. In 1965 he recorded the retrospective September of My Years, starred in the Emmy-winning television special Frank Sinatra: A Man and His Music, and scored hits with “Strangers in the Night” and “My Way“. After releasing Sinatra at the Sands, recorded at the Sands Hotel and Casino in Vegas with frequent collaborator Count Basie in early 1966, the following year he recorded one of his most famous collaborations with Tom Jobim, the album Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim. It was followed by 1968’s collaboration with Duke Ellington. Sinatra retired for the first time in 1971, but came out of retirement two years later and recorded several albums and resumed performing at Caesars Palace. In 1980 he scored a Top 40 hit with “(Theme From) New York, New York“. Using his Las Vegas shows as a home base, he toured both within the United States and internationally until a short time before his death in 1998.

Sinatra forged a highly successful career as a film actor. After winning an Academy Award for From Here to Eternity, he starred in The Man with the Golden Arm (1955), and received critical acclaim for his performance in The Manchurian Candidate (1962). He appeared in various musicals such as On the Town (1949), Guys and Dolls (1955), High Society (1956), and Pal Joey (1957), and toward the end of his career he became associated with playing detectives, including the title character in Tony Rome (1967). On television, The Frank Sinatra Show began on ABC in 1950, and he continued to make appearances on television throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Sinatra was also heavily involved with politics from the mid 1940s, and actively campaigned for presidents such as Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, though before Kennedy’s death Sinatra’s alleged Mafia connections led to his being snubbed.

While Sinatra never formally learned how to read music, he had a fine, natural understanding of it, and he worked very hard from a young age to improve his abilities in all aspects of music. A perfectionist, renowned for his impeccable dress sense and cleanliness, he always insisted on recording live with his band. His deep blue eyes earned him the popular nickname “Ol’ Blue Eyes”. Sinatra led a colorful personal life, and was often involved in turbulent affairs with women, such as with his second wife Ava Gardner. He went on to marry Mia Farrow in 1966 and Barbara Marx in 1976. Sinatra had several violent confrontations, usually with journalists who he felt had crossed him or work bosses he had disagreements with. He was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors in 1983 and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Ronald Reagan in 1985 and the Congressional Gold Medal in 1997. Sinatra was also the recipient of eleven Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Trustees Award, Grammy Legend Award and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. After his death, American music critic Robert Christgau called him “the greatest singer of the 20th century”, and he continues to be seen as an iconic figure.
