"...“Let’s talk about a little of both.” I’d just asked Courtney Love if she had a preference for chatting about her Saturday show at Emo’s or her recently launched fashion line, Never the Bride...."
"...Directed by: Nick Broomfield. Starring: Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love..."
"...Their descriptions of sexism in the business were initially foreign to me. They talk about riot grrrls and Courtney Love, but what about Florence Greenburg, Estelle Axton, and Barbara Lynn? The point wasn't that disparity existed, but rather how much dialogue remained unspoken...."
"...Resettled back to Central Texas, Will Courtney has likewise returned to a comfortable sound with third solo LP Crazy Love. 2016's Planning Escapes struck searchingly, diving into rootsy power-pop and a nostalgia for "The Days When Bands Could Make You Cry." Now, the former Brothers & Sisters frontman's latest platter rings even more confident in building a wall of sound from heavy Sixties and Seventies influences, such as Courtney's warm, nasal tenor ringing like Tom Petty..."
"...Seabrook Jones (center) at his benefit surrounded with love from Micah King and Stephen Rice (left) and Jacki Oh, Stephen Moser and Maria Groten, November, 2012...."
"...With Valentine's Day well over, you've had some time to reflect bitterly on the complete crock that is romantic love in this over-hyped, over-marketed goddamn day and age. Perhaps you've even made that dark internal pledge -- hung a "gone fishing" sign on your fourth chakra, This Heart Closed for Business...."
"...Released this week, Crazy Love testifies to Courtney's triple threat as a performer, songwriter, and producer. Nary a hint of superfluity blurs the emotion and economy of its 11 songs..."
"...McKay hadn't brought a script to audition people with. He and his collaborators just asked each celebrity what he or she loved about Austin..."
"...Doug Pray's previous music doc -- 1996's Hype! -- chronicled the rise and fall of the Seattle grunge scene; by film's end you realized for all the crazy beauty in front of you, what you were really witnessing was a death knell. Not so with Scratch, which arrives with the same outsider music sensibility as its predecessor but celebrates the birth -- and ongoing development -- of a whole new music subgenre that's as likely to fade away as ex-grunge queen Courtney Love is likely to settle up with her late husband's old bandmates..."
"...There are exceptions, of course: Among genre films, George Miller's The Road Warrior springs instantly to mind, as does George Romero's Dawn of the Dead, but continuations such as these are, regrettably, few and far between. I'd love to say that Tim Pope's take on The Crow saga fell into the latter category, but sadly, this isn't the case..."
"...Directed by: Milos Forman. Starring: Woody Harrelson, Courtney Love, Edward Norton, James Cromwell, James Carville, Crispin Glover and Larry Flynt..."
"...Lost Souls, her first novel, took the standard vampire tale and warped it into a stunningly original gay love story with Goth overtones, while its semi-sequel, Drawing Blood, deconstructed the Southern-Gothic ghost tale for the Nineties that leaves the reader shocked, disturbed, and hungry for more. Her short story collection Swamp Foetus (released in paperback last summer as Wormwood) is likewise one of the most wonderfully distressing books it's been my privilege to encounter...."
"...Directed by: Milos Forman. Starring: Jim Carrey, Danny DeVito, Courtney Love, Paul Giamatti and Tony Clifton..."
"...Courtney Love, punk rock's Norma Desmond, brings the latest incarnation of Hole to Spin's annual day party at Stubb's Friday, March 19. The group's new LP, Nobody's Daughter, its first in a decade, comes out in April...."
"...What these people have in common is a love of words as well as a felicity with them. Which is to say they're songwriters, not drummers, and that's a job that demands a certain gift for expressive lyricism, vivid physical details, metaphorical imagery, and even musicality..."
"...Nick Broomfield A few days into my quest for an interview with documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield, I began to feel like a Broomfield manqué, stalking serial killer Aileen Wuornos or Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss -- or trying to outfox Courtney Love. His L.A..."
