Like everybody else, I can’t believe what the students in small-town Canada have found the likeness of Kurt Cobain appearing mysteriously on a shoe; a message they say from the great punk beyond.
Gord Bambrick, the teacher who first saw what many are calling ‘the grimy miracle of grunge’ said that a person couldn’t have sketched it on there in such uncomfortable spot any better.
The image, which illustrates photo-realistic detail of Cobain’s deep-set eyes and flowing locks of blond hair, was fashioned under mysterious circumstances, in a cloud of secrecy, intrigue, and chalk. Why the image appeared, no one can say how. However it give clear impression that Kurt Cobain, frontman for the prominent alternative rock band Nirvana and decade-old suicide, is attempting to communicate with us from beyond the grave.
Funs from all over the world are come together to mark Cobain’s return in shoe dust form. The loyal followers are gathered by the hundreds, in some instances hoping for blessing or healing, in others simply venerating their idol.
“I wanted to pour a bottle of Scotch on it, like I did at his grave, but they told me it would mess it up,” said one follower.
Officials from Cobain’s estate said they have yet to declare the shoe a definite miracle, the expression of faith and devotion speaks for itself. Many believe that the shoe is an omen of Cobain’s return, and that it’s now only a matter of time before he’s back in the studio recording his much-anticipated post-posthumous album.
“I just hope this time around he ditches Courtney Love,” remarked a woman in a Nevermind t-shirt. “She was totally wrong for him.”
