    29 MILLION!!!?? WTF!? Who cares who used to live there. They are not going to be in the house when you own it. I'd like to drive by after the sale (IF it actually goes thru) and knock on the door.

    Me: "Did you actually pay $29 Mill for this house because some dead musician used to live here?"
    Him: "Yes. And he's not just some...blah blah blah words words words"
    Me: Passed out on the porch cause I couldn't breathe cause I was laughing so hard.

    I'm pretty sure those are dead beat bidders bidding on the house and they are just trying to cause problems.

    This house is near my town. The people who bought it didnt know it was his house. They bought it for around 45,000 as a fixer upper. ( NOTICE THERE ARE NO INTERIER PICTUERS)

    They decided to turn around and sell it for 200,000 after they found out who it had belonged too. I thought they would never get 200,000 and now its up to 25 million?

    Those people got so lucky

    Your are right about a ebayer not paying. If you notice the highest bidders past auctions are cheap stuff. He even sold something but the photo of the item he is selling shows how crappy of a place he lives in. Looks like hotel room shades in the back ground.LOL

    One of the bidders had bought some crappy ol used Honda Civic lights LMAO. Yeah hes a millionair for sure.

    I liked some Nivana songs, but I wouldn't spend that much money for Kurt KaBang's house if I had it to spend.

    Sorry Mandy...just a little dark humor.

    "Hey man...nice shot" was a song by Filter about Kurt Cobain's suicide. I think the point was they were sick to death of hearing all the media frothing over his death.

    Sorry I didnt mean to be a tight ass about it. I didnt get the song title joke from "Kurt No Brain" "Kurt Blam Cobain" and "Kurt Kabang". .

    I just dont think suicide is funny or something to joke about thats all. But like I said that is just me and my opinion Im not trying to be mean or jump on anyone. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I bet the bidders are some punk kids. When I looked last it was somebody with -1 feedback. You can tell a lot about a person about their past purchases. Like if the highest bidder had purchsed a 00 Lambo-Diablo in the bast you can be pretty sure they can come up with the cash to buy the house.

    If I remember right that song was about a mayor that took his life (which was Richard Patrick's home town mayor)lead singer of Filter. I could be wrong but I don't really care.

    I find that killing oneself to be selfish. It's a cheap way to go. There is pleny of "help" in this world.

    If it was your family member who did something like that would you make jokes about it and call them names like that? Its pretty uncompassionate of you people to make jokes like that. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    A former co-worker was a huge Filter fan and relayed that story to me when the song came out. Who can say for sure who he was talking about???

    Mandy...I agree the jokes are in poor taste. Whatever his reasons were I lost any respect I may have for Cobain the second he pulled the trigger. His actions led to many 'sympathetic' suicides by young fans...2 of them right here in my town. That is tragic...Kurts death wasn't IMHO. Kurts death was an act of cowardice.

    Can anyone remember what they were doing when they heard about Cobains death? My wife was in active labor and 2 hours away from giving birth to my eldest daughter when we heard they found his body...April 8th 1994. He has been dead a few days already by then I guess.
