EUGENE, Ore. — Nirvana fans can rejoice! The surviving members of the band Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and touring member Pat Smear briefly reunited for a rendition of the Foo Fighters song “Big Me” at a concert in Eugene, Ore.
“I love you Krist,” Grohl says as Novoselic leaves the stage. “No! That’s a new one,” he yells as the bass player pretends to smash his instrument to smithereens, just like the old days. “You just got it!”
Don McClean would have you believe that Feb. 3, 1959, was “the day the music died” but for gen-Xers, that day is April 5, 1994 the day Kurt Cobain took his own life and left legions of adoring fans in tears or worse.
In the wake of Cobain’s suicide, Dave Grohl, the drummer who played with Cobain in Nirvana, went on to have a long and successful career after he formed your dad’s favorite band, Foo Fighters, with guitarist Pat Smear who was never a full-fledged member of Nirvana, but he played rhythm guitar at a lot of their live shows.
But what happened to the other guy?
Nirvana’s bassist Krist Novoselic dabbled in a few post-Nirvana musical projects, but none of them really took off like Grohl’s did. Grohl actually asked Novoselic to join Foo Fighters as a full time band member, but he declined.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time the three musicians have jammed together since Nirvana ceased to exist. During the filming of Grohl’s 2013 documentary “Sound City,” the trio teamed up with rock god Paul McCartney and recorded a new track titled “Cut Me Some Slack,” which they played live a few times in 2013. they also reunited for Nirvana’s induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame the following year, where they rocked out with Lorde, St. Vincent and Joan Jett because they love rock and roll!
Recently, Grohl was the guest host for the Oct. 31 edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” And he completely nailed the Halloween theme by showing up in a terrifyingly accurate David Letterman costume.
“I’m Dave Grohl dressed as Dave Letterman sitting in for Jimmy Kimmel. It’s confusing, I get it, especially if you’re home watching right now stoned to the bone,” the guest host said.
He went on to perform a rocking version of “Do You Want To Build a Snowman” from the movie “Frozen” with one of its stars, Kristen Bell who was dressed up as Tom Selleck’s ’80s TV icon Magnum P.I.

— A Georgia State University soccer player was suspended from the team after she used a racial epithet on social media, school officials said.
Freshman defender Natalia Martinez’s name was stripped from the team’s online roster after the epithet appeared on her Finsta page, a secret version of Instagram that is growing in popularity among teens.
“We do not tolerate the language the student used in her post,” the university said in a statement.
Associate athletic director Mike Holmes told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that officials were made aware of Martinez’s post Friday morning.
“We are handling the matter internally at the present time,” he said.

— There are plenty of reputable options if you want to pull up to a drive-thru and devour some crispy, golden chicken, i.e. KFC and Popeyes. However, an unsuspecting alternative you might have ignored at your last gas tank fill-up has been crowned the true bastion of fried chicken.
Krispy Krunchy Chicken, established in 1989 in LaFayette, Louisiana, has bested some much more familiar names as Thrillist’s choice for America’s best fried chicken chain. The online entertainment site described the chain’s Cajun-style chicken as “the most underrated item in fast food today.”
KKC, which is typically attached to convenience stores, has more then 2,300 locations in the U.S., Malaysia and American Samoa, according to its site.
Krispy Krunchy doesn’t leave it up to its spicy chicken to do all the work though. Its honey butter biscuits, daubed in honey, Cajun rice balls and macaroni and cheese are also mouthwatering.
The vote of approval was even co-signed by New York-based restaurateur and “Top Chef” contestant Dale Telde.
“Their fried chicken is ill,” he told Thrilllist. “I go there every time that I’m in Miami, and I’m in Miami once per month."
The Louisiana chicken standard only began expanding outside of its home state in 2000, and its fast-growing franchising is due not only to the winning taste but affordable prices, according to the company’s bio.
If you haven’t yet tried America’s best fried chicken, according to Thrillist, the site said you need to.

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. — A 12-year-old boy in Lauderdale Lakes has been charged as an adult in a carjacking last week, Broward County Sheriff deputies said Monday.
According to the sheriff’s office, Shaquille Dixon is one of three juveniles who carjacked an elderly woman at gunpoint on Jan. 15 in a Walmart parking lot.
Surveillance video from the store on North State Road 7 shows Dixon and two other suspects following the woman into the store. When she is done shopping the woman is seen walking to her car, with the suspects close behind.
Once the woman got to her car, two of the suspects walked up behind her and the other suspect walked around to the front of the car, pointed a gun and demanded the car keys. The woman complied and the suspects fled with the car so quickly, they almost hit the victim.
Deputies took Dixon into custody on Jan. 19 and he’s facing felony carjacking charges.

PERRIS, Calif. — Authorities are releasing more information about the California “torture house” where over a dozen children were kept in subhuman conditions by their parents, including that the victims kept journals.
Though the children in the home, ages 2 to 29, were only allowed to bathe twice a year and eat once a day, they were allowed to write all the time. Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin said at a press conference on the case that the children kept hundreds of journals and that he believes they will be “very significant” in the upcoming court case, the Desert Sun reported. Hestrin added that he thinks the journals will provide “strong evidence of what occurred in that home.”
K I just noticed something really bizarre about that Turpin family (from the parents' shared facebook page). They recreated the exact same renewal of vows with the same Elvis impersonator, same outfits, the same venue THREE TIMES.

Researchers are also interested in the journals as they detail the first-hand accounts of horrific abuse. One academic told the Desert Sun “There is a good chance that being able to write may have kept them sane. In an interesting way, this may have helped them come to terms with the bizarre world they lived in.” He even compared them to the journals kept by Anne Frank.
The journals could prove valuable for prosecutors as they might provide damning evidence that could be used to cross-examine the parents, David and Louise Turpin. The Turpins are facing life behind bars for a series of charges, including torture.
David Turpin, 57, & Louise Turpin, 49, in custody for suspicion of torture & child endangerment after 13 victims ranging from 2-29 years old were rescued. They were found to be malnourished & some chained to their beds. @JamesRojasKABC @RSO pic.twitter.com/4Dnb6ubiks— KABC790 (OFFICIAL) (@KABCRadio) January 15, 2018
The journals have not been made public, and law enforcement officials are currently in the process of reviewing them.
The conditions in the home were unimaginable. The children were reportedly beaten and chained to furniture. Neighbors recalled seeing them marching during the night, and they were almost never allowed outside. They were finally liberated when one girl escaped and managed to find a police officer. She was 17 years old, but her growth was so stunted that police allegedly estimated her to be closer to 10 years old when they first saw her.
