Media diet: Jessa Crispin comments on the new Courtney Love book.
This was exactly what I needed to perk me up on a gray morning, or at least have a good laugh thanks for Jessa Crispin's deadpan observations at bookslut:
Courtney Love, uh, made a book. "Wrote" is the wrong word. It's sort of like sneaking a look at someone's really f*cked up diary. It's called Dirty Blonde, and it made me pull out my copy of Pretty on the Inside again. Salon sort of reviews the book, sort of just tries to justify Love's existence. It seemed a bit unnecessary until I started reading the comments. People compare Courtney Love to Hitler in those comments. (I wonder if the same people commenting are the same people using Salon's dating service. That would explain some things.)
