“Adorkable” Is Officially a Word: Links You Need to See

In today’s links, I seem to have inadvertently compiled a collection of stories (or fragments, or something smaller, perhaps, even) about people who tend to polarize. The name Courtney Love, for example, seems to exist along a virtual tectonic plate that shudders every time it’s uttered (oh look, a rhyme!), creating a fissure that you can count on to divide the internet. … Read More

Did You Hear the One About How Courtney Love Can’t Sing or Play Guitar?

On the ninth day of September, in the year of our Lord 2014, we learned that Courtney Love is not a great singer. “But wait,” you might say, “Courtney Love has been famous for nearly a quarter-century now. We have known since the release of Hole’s debut album, Pretty on the Inside, in 1991, what her voice sounds like.” And yet, when a gentleman named J.M. Ladd — who says he was “hired through the venue to record this show” — uploaded an isolated recording of Love’s vocals and guitar from a 2010 Fashion Week gig, every music and pop culture publication on the Internet posted the clip, accompanied by some pointing, laughing commentary. “Courtney Love’s Isolated Vocal and Guitar Tracks Are Even Worse Than You’d Imagine,” Noisey sneered, in a headline that encapsulates the general response. … Read More

10 Musicians Who Deserve Their Own TV Shows

Between Rivers Cuomo’s college sitcom DeTour, Adam Levine’s 1990s autobiographical comedy, and the countless forgettable singers that will find themselves on forgettable reality shows, it looks like 2015 could be the year musicians take over television.

To help TV fully embrace this musical trend, here are ten musicians who also deserve television shows — and pitches for each one. No need to thank us, networks, just put the check in the mail. … Read More

Courtney Love’s 25 Best Songs

On this day in 1964, a child named Courtney Michelle Harrison was born to a pair of hippie parents in California.

Besides making the Gen-Xers (and even early millennials like your co-authors) out there feel ancient, Courtney Love’s 50th birthday is the perfect excuse for a few superfans to celebrate something that often gets lost amid all the tabloid headlines: her music. In our highly subjective opinion, these are the 25 best songs Love has ever recorded; tell us about your favorites in the comments. … Read More
