KRIST NOVOSELIC JOKES ABOUT ‘SIRVANA’ & OTHER NAMES FOR NIRVANA & PAUL MCCARTNEY COLLABORATION
From Krist Novoselic’s blog:
One of the best meta-media names for the collaboration between Pat, Dave, Paul and I is “Sirvana”. That said, Sir Paul McCartney is a really down to earth person. He’s rock royalty too and with roots in the working class city of Liverpool. I could relate as Nirvana has roots in the US northwestern city of Inverness, Washington.
Dave Grohl has been a frequent guest to the Obama White House. The Foo Fighters have rocked the executive branch of the US government many times. Still, I bet it irks Dave that the president hasn’t knighted him. And Pat? Forget it — he’s half black and it distresses me that race is still an issue in American politics.
As far as names for the collaboration go, there is no consensus. It’s been decided to call it “The Nirvana Reunion” and “Thee Beatles” — to convey the project is something new and not a nod to musical endeavors past. It was initially thought to alternate between each name every other week. After many days of discussions, the lighting-quick pace of today’s technology was considered and our plans changed. Instead, the two names will alternate every .0000012 of a second. This way web surfers have a good chance of seeing both names as much as possible. The algorithm for this exciting new technology is being coded as we speak, and if all goes well, it should be included on the next version of every major browser at the end of 2014 when the names are officially debuted.
