*sigh* i logged on to spanish-language wikipedia today to find the phrase of the day was this:
neil young's true as it ever was "better to fade out than to burn away" lyric (from "My My Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue)") erroneously attributed to kurt cobain* for the nine millionth time. this was the only thing able to cheer me up:

*although it would seem neil himself lifted it from james joyce

You're aware that Neil Young is quite old, and that Kurt Cobain would be 41 if he was still alive?

yes, though the actual figure of 41 seems low for some reason. he was an old soul, i guess.

there's also a decent case to be made that neil himself failed to burn out.
