Spencer Elden, now 22, is still introduced as the 'Nirvana baby' two decades after the release of the album and has learned to cope with the extra attention his brush with fame generates

Two-year-old article is two years old.

I heard hm on NPR a few years ago for this bit, and he was saying how "things were so much cooler back in the 90s.  Back then, if you wanted to play music you'd start a band... now you just play Guitar Hero."

It reminds me of when I was his age in the 90s and I thought the 70s were cooler for whatever reason.  I think I theorized this was because it was easier to get booze.  I would say this of course while I was drinking underage.

So are they all terrible at maths, or is this article two years old?  Also, why would he "be introduced" as the Nirvana baby unless he was specifically trying to trade on that image?  He couldn't possibly be otherwise recognized.  That isn't extra attention.

I know it's the Fail, but they are reaching inexplicable depths of stupidity when there is that much recognizably wrong in just one quote.

The 1970's were the coolest but not because of the availability of booze. It was the women. The sexual revolution had made it permissible for women to dress in "attractive" ways but they hadn't yet become too obvious or started mutilating their bodies with plastic surgery,

I suppose that and a variety of Aaron Spelling shows designed to put as many of those women on TV as possible.  The weed sucked though.

FTFY.

Note that those sexy 70s/80s vixens didn't *need* tattoos to "express themselves" or to be sexy. They were confidant with themselves and their sexuality without needing to rely on gimmicks.

Older decades always seem better than the current decade because the WERE better than the current decade.

Things just keep getting worse and worse, especially for young people. That's why we feel like the 70s and 90s were better than now. They were. Scientific fact. It's been proven with math.

A tattoo on a beautiful woman is like graffiti on the Grand Canyon. No matter how artfully done, it's still a detraction, rather than an enhancement.

The 70s and the 90s??  The 80s trumped them both, by a mile.

As I posted in another thread yesterday:

People speak of the 1980's as though they were a monolith. The 80's that I love ran from 1978 to 1984 (punk, new wave). The bad part was from 1985 into the 1990's (Bon Jovi, the effects of Reagan's presidency).

Reagan was great for a certain kind of art.  Specifically, I'm thinking of the 80s Action Film.  Manly, muscled men in close combat.  No sex on screen (thank you Edward Meese).  Revenge fantasies.  Bureaucracy (take that you stupid chief).

From Top Gun to Cobra to the works of Seagal - the 80s was Reagan's America right there on the screen.

We'll get to see the article (and his peener) every five years or so, until his obituary shows up on Fark with a headline like "Nirvana naked peener baby finally catches up with dollar bill" or "Nobody wants to look at Nirvana naked baby's peener anymore."

"Coping?" Dude, you could have easily gone the rest of your life with no one knowing that was you on the cover. Instead, you give interviews about it. I probably would, too, but I also would't consider it a downside if I brought it on myself.
