  • Kurt Cobain Final Interview

  • So... I do a book show in March.

  • Where, we talk to...

  • You do what?

  • A book show... Oh!.

  • Talk to different people about favorite books. That you've read and...

  • How it's inspired you or what you've learned from it, or something like that.

  • So you do have a book that... that comes back to you every once and a while?

  • Yeah, well...

  • I've read "Perfume" by Patrickskind.

  • About 10 times in my life, and... I can't stop reading it.

  • It's like, something that's just stationary in my pocket all the time.

  • It just doesn't leave me and uh, every time I'm bored, like, when I'm on an airplane or something

  • I read it over and over again.

  • 'Cause I'm a hypochondriac and it just affects me.

  • Makes me want to cut my nose off.

  • What's the book about?

  • It's about this... perfume apprentice

  • and in... in France.

  • At the turn of the century, and he... he...

  • he is just disgusted basically with all humans and he just can't get away from humans. So he goes on this trek.

  • This... walk of death

  • where he just he... he goes into the rural areas where there's, you know, woods all over the place

  • into small villages and he only travels by night.

  • And... he... just, every time he smells human

  • like a fire from a far off way, you know he'll... he'll just get really disgusted and hide.

  • He just tries to stay away from people.

  • I can relate to that.

  • Do you ever use what you read in any of your songs?

  • As a matter of fact, I used that very story in "Scentless Apprentice"

  • Yeah.

  • So...

  • That's really one of the, first times that I've ever used a,

  • an actual story... you know, as a book. You know, as an example of a song.

  • Yeah, I've always tried to stay away from that

  • But now that I'm running out of ideas, more and more

  • I ... I tend to do that.

  • Is it hard when, uh...

  • you spend your whole life.... doing the first few albums

  • And then suddenly everybody needs

  • your attention. you have to give interviews, you have to travel around

  • and suddenly...

  • Is it hard to come up with ideas?

  • hmm...

  • you know the old saying that you can't buy hapiness

  • you think that's true?

  • well...

  • yeah, you can't buy hapiness

  • I mean, that made me happy for a little while

  • but

  • I mean, I was just probably almost as just happy with, you know

  • I don't know, I used to...

  • I look back on

  • going to second hand stores and stuff like that

  • and finding a little treasure like that

  • and that actually meant more to me because it was

  • it was more of a stab in the dark in a way, you know

  • cause you didn't know if you were going to be able to afford it

  • and you don't know what you're really looking for

  • and when you find it, it's more special to you

  • rather than... you know

  • having a thousand dollars and going into a store like that

  • and just buying the hole store.. you know

  • it's not as special
